      Perfect family rental w/everything you need & more

      My family stayed at Marcy's home during the first week of August 2016 and it was just wonderful! The house and the grounds are just setup so well for family and friends. We had four consistent residents the entire week: Me, my wife, our 11-month old son and our dog, then we had different groups of friends with their kids join us throughout the week. It's tough to find a property that can comfortably work for such an eclectic mix of people and personalities cycling in and out throughout a week, but I couldn't be more happy to report that Balla Machree exceeded all expectations. Some of the high notes from our stay: > All bedrooms on the ground floor, with access to the upper living area via a central stairway. Sound did not travel very well between the floors, so what was going on upstairs didn't bother anyone trying to sneak in a nap or hit the hay early downstairs. The cooking and living areas also look out onto the tree tops, which is a view much better enjoyed while hanging out than snoozing. > Very comfortable master bedroom and en-suite master bath. This gives the property a very nice luxury touch. > No A/C needed. We were worried about this on account of the dog and baby, but even on the the hottest days it was not an issue. Sleeping temperature each night dropped to a very comfortable temp. > Awesome outdoor shower! It's cavernous and super helpful for preventing the beach from coming indoors with you. > Equally awesome fire pit with lounge seating for 8. Really fun way end a day on the vineyard by gathering around an open fire. > Hiking trail directly connected to the backyard. Our dog had a blast galloping through the woods. Bring some bug spray, but enjoy a morning walk or run through the woods. There are a bunch of trails that connect and I may have gotten myself lost a couple times after hiking all the way down to the lagoon. > Two grills! One down by the fire pit and another up on the deck. Super convenient.

      4/5 Good

        Fantastic house but no AC

        This is an excellent home: spacious, well appointed, on beautiful grounds, with an amazing outdoor shower. There is lots of room for a family to hang out, yet also find their own space for privacy when needed. It's a short drive to town, but the neighborhood feels remote and wild turkeys abound. The beds are comfortable and the linens are very good. That said, the lack of air conditioning in this home was a problem for some members of my family during our stay. We were at the home during the last week in July. It was a hot week with the temp in the mid-80's every day, and the upstairs -- where the kitchen and common areas are located -- were very uncomfortable. Every room had a fan, but this really only helped at night. If your family plans to be out during the summer days, it shouldn't be that big a deal. But that's not the case for some people in my family. And if it weren't for that issue, this house would be 5 stars.
