Thank you for your comments. Regarding the electricity and heating costs, we are clear about these at the time of booking. They simply reflect what our guests use and what it costs us (and is a much fairer system than charging higher rents, assuming that everyone is going to have the heating on all the time). Some guests choose to have a lot of heat and are happy to pay for it , others are very careful. Some guests chose to have a lot of heat and are not happy to pay for it. Samantha and Boris had a small baby and had the heating on for twice as much as the average guest - it cost them 8 euros per day in Late October.
We very much enjoyed their company and thankfully for most guests, Annie's Cottage is very conveniently located being only 2 mins from the nearest shop, 20mins from Killarney and Tralee - so hardly an 'isolated' location and 'far from everything'. None of these comments were mentioned during the four day stay despite many happy conversations - Oh well!
