Laharandota is a perfect getaway. It does not only take you to another place, but if you let it, to another time, one in which the world turns just a little slower and in which every detail has been paid attention to. Turn on the retro radio, sit in the cozy armchair with the fireplace to your left and the fluffy blanket on your knees, enjoy the views from the winter garden (tip: if you bring the LaFuma recliner chairs inside, you will never want to sit anywhere else, independent of the weather) or take a bath in a Kate Winslet like style (watch "The Holiday" and you know what I'm talking about - by the way, this is a movie that would be the perfect addition to the exclusive movie collection you can find in the cottage, so somone leave it there! O.k. it is NOT playing in Ireland, but that's a detail.). But, anything you do gives you the feeling of being in the home you ever wished for (it did that to us, at least). Well all right, the sea you can see when you wake up (unless on a cloudy but mysteriously looking day that is) does its bit, but the house is just wonderful.
When you stand in front of the Rayburn oven (and haven't seen one before) you might find yourself being a little awestruck. But, trust the description and it will become your best friend. You will find yourself baking an apple pie, whip the cream with a fork (there is stirring gear, so you can use that as well), baking again, this time a quiche... You need to give it a little time, but it is a great tool that also heats up the whole cottage.
Well, this review could go on and on... But it would only make us want to go back just now. So to summarise - if you're after quality, a little luxury and plenty of peace, you will find it there. If you're looking for a house with a soul, you will fall in love with it. We certainly will go back. And we hope, that people who go there treat is as if it was their own home, because when we go back, we'd like to find it as perfect as it was.
