3rd comment: Although some may think the kitchen is old-fashioned the property has always been immaculately clean (this was our 3rd visit)and the owners are so very welcoming and helpful - they always provide toilet rolls, kitchen rolls, foil, cling-film etc. Moniaive is a pretty village, and everything is available on your door-step. May 2011.

11th Comment Although the property is quite old ALL equipment and kitchen ware was brand new and high quality bedding including mattress new. Cleanest property I have ever stayed in. Feb 2010.
12th Comment A well furnished property, in a beautiful and friendly village. The owners were most helpful and we had lovely welcome treats and a raging fire on arrival. Also the owners keep it well stocked with all the little items that take up all the room when you pack your bags to go on holiday. Also the owner phoned up too see if we had a safe journey home as the weather was terrible on the day we travelled - this we very much appreciated. Oct 2009.
13th Comment Property was spacious, very comfortable, very well equipped, located off the road and good for parking. The property was in a peaceful location in a lovely village. I could quite happily live in the property because it had a lovely feel to it. The bedding was beautiful and beds very comfortable. The towels were also high quality and even face towels were available. It is one of the best properties I have stayed in and I have rented many over the years. Sept 2009.

16th Comment The property was very clean, well set out and fully furnished with all crockery etc. The welcome gift was really appreciated. Aug 2009.
17th Comment The booking clerk picked my holiday so 5* for her - l could not make my mind up out of 2. The owners were delightful even gave us fresh filleted fish caught that day in their boat. The property was so so clean (I’ am a nurse/infection controltutor and assessor) We picked great weather that week -only one little niggle direction to say Chapel St is between doctor’s surgery and constitutional hall tiny little gap that can be missed. Told the owners that the icing on the cake would be outdoor table and chairs low and behold they got then but only after we left but they were brilliant could have stayed all year, and thanks to the young lady that chose for me. June 2009.
18th Comment The owners couldn’t have been more welcoming - we appreciated their hospitality on arrival and were very helpful with any queries about the local area.The accommodation was better than described and the pictures didn’t really do the property justice as the view from the living room was spectacular! I shall be booking for next year and am already looking forward to it. April 2009.
19th Comment We found An Cala a lovely cottage, with everything that you would need - never been to a cottage with everything supplied. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and the everyone in village itself was very friendly. April 2009.
