About Ronan Bargain

I am a captain of a ocean-worthy tuna fishing boat.

My wife is a trained biologist and she looks after the 2 flats when I am away.

We have a 12 m catamaran that we rent out and that I use on my time-off when it is not rented out.

We loved it - an amazing find - great to have had the opportunity to stay

  • 5 of 5

Eden island is a perfect location for a break with 4 beaches, 2 swimming pools, a shopping and restaurant complex and an electric transport buggy - what more could you want. There are two apartments - we had the ground floor which was perfect, with a garden, kayak and access to the boating area. Ronan and Geda took excellent care of us. We were a family of 4 (children aged 10+12). We had a couple of small problems with the apartment which were taken care of promptly. Unfortunately the boat trip collection from the pontoon at the end of the garden was no longer available. We instead went on a trip organised by Mason travel which was very good. Geda cooked us an excellent meal (fresh fish creole style and a special non-spicy version for the children). The whole time there was really wonderful and we'd love to go back. Our only advice would be to try to pre-book your pick up from the airport. We were fleeced 50 Euro by the taxi driver for the 10 minute journey. We understand Mason travel offer a transfer service - worth investigating.

We have been traveling all over the world for the past 20 years, and never experienced the service we received from the staff. When a family member became very ill, they went of their way to assist. Locating the doctor, and continued to check on the ill family member.

The apartment was everything we had hoped for, with a fantastic view of the water. The staff was always ready to assist. I would highly recommend this apartment.

Again, thank you for all of your help and assistant. Roger

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 11 nights in December/January. The apartment is exceptionally well equipped. It is very spacious and private with a beautiful view from the garden. The golf buggy is an added bonus and great fun! Eden Island itself is stunning with everything you need on your door step. All in all a great holiday!

A shopping centre opened its doors at the end of 2013. There is a covered garage in the basement,a supermarket, several restaurants, bars and banks, a casino and quite a few boutiques. All are three minutes away in your electric car and without leaving the island. This allows you to make the most of your holidays here with everything close by.
