An island adventure awaits you. Your tent will be pitched awaiting your arrival and overlooks the Atlantic Ocean with only the sounds of nature to keep you company. The emphasis is on freedom, spontaneity, and the unexpected. Watch the early sunrise and enjoy the uninterrupted south-facing views overlooking the other islands. Your inner child will love exploring the many private coves and rock pools. Whether you are looking for some quality time out, solitude, new adventures, or inspiration, this is the place to come. The roar of the ocean will make you forget, while the crashing waves will help you remember. Your first steps here will be like stepping back in time into a world of discovery encased in a wrapping of pure nature. There is no traffic noise, only the sound of the ocean and wildlife. Leave your worries at Colla Pier as this is where the adventure truly begins.
We took a leap of faith in coming to live here. We left our secure lifestyle behind us in the UK to start a new way of life in 2016. Island living is very different from mainland living and is not for everyone. We are so glad we found the courage to break free. A simple lifestyle is physically demanding but very rewarding. We chose to take our foot off the accelerator and honor our true natures. Our new way of being nurtures our souls. Simplicity is our mantra. We are living our dream with so many changes having been witnessed. Extraordinarily living an ordinary life has put us both on our individual pathways to personal & spiritual freedom. We have one life. What we do with that precious gift is down to us. We made our choice and followed our dream... what will you do? ​ ​
Long Island is five minutes from mainland Colla Pier and lies south of Schull. The islands within Long Island Bay are collectively known as Carbery’s Hundred Isles, and many can be seen from East House. Look out for the Seals, Otters, Dolphins, oystercatchers, and Turnstones together with other Birdlife, Butterflies, and the range of Fauna & Flora. Surprisingly the island got its name from being long; The island is 3.0 miles long by 0.5 miles wide, with varying landscapes from end to end. Copper Point Lighthouse is the most distinctive man-created feature on the island, and the island is scattered with old stone ruins, which gives an air of mystery. The remoteness of the eastern lands of Long Island and its Wild Atlantic Ocean views are what breathe life and energy into your stay. The peaceful environment provides a haven for people to explore themselves and what life can really offer. Explore / Relax / Play / Be inspired
