Luxury boutique bed and breakfast.
An architecturally stunning home which is modern, bright, comfortable and a bit quirky.
Centrally located, luxuriously appointed guest rooms and ensuites.
Burma Rooms BnB with its professional hosts is a perfect place to stay or to tour the northwest from.
I guess our space is a little unique as we took a tired, dated, unattractive 70 year old ex-local authority property that was unloved, had little to offer to a young modern couple; it needed a lot of work so we decided to engage an award winning architect to help us achieve our dream of taking something old, unloved, unused with what appeared to be limited scope for development and turned it into a stunning modern home for ourselves and now with the opportunity for others to enjoy also. We have 2 double ensuite rooms available for B&B
The views from the windows and top balcony are simply stunning and we love asking guests to test their vertigo by standing on our glass floor.
The proximity to Letterkenny town centre should also be given a mention as all amenities are within a short (2-10 minute) walk.
Plenty free secure off street car parking.
In addition to having their private ensuite room, guests are welcome to enjoy the rest of the house which includes Kitchen, Sitting room, Dining area, and in the summer our outdoor west facing balcony which is a real sun trap.
Love reading? Why not enjoy your book or kindle in our funky little wine cave where u can either find a glass for a BYOB or be lucky enough to get your host to pop open something old and dusty. While reading up on your wine knowledge of course!!!!
Guests may use the laundry room for washing and drying for a small charge.
Interakcija s gostima
We hope that our guests will want to interact with us and that we can provide accurate and local knowledge of the area, make a good recommendation for a restaurant or pub or whatever is required. Khris ' family have lived in this area for over 100 years so we know the territory pretty well. We are at your service.
However, We fully respect that some guests will want peace and quiet and may want as little interaction as possible. That's fine with us also.
Generally we will be about during the stay of a guest should they need anything. If we have popped out we won't have gone far. In any event, Khris's mum and dad live right next door and would only be happy to help. Khris's Dad is dutch so if your travelling from Holland and your English is not brilliant, we have a translator "on staff".
Khris' dad is an ex navy and merchant seaman who spent 25 years at sea. He met Khris' Irish mum at a football match in Australia in 1965. They have been hosting BnB for their family, friends and colleagues from all over the world including Canada, USA, Caribbean, Australia, New Zealand, Denmark, UK, Spain for nearly 50 years at their family home. I guess that's where Khris gets it form.
We definitely hope that our guests will join us in our Wine Cave for free samples and to exchange stories about wine on their travels.
Jason and Khris have previously worked as hotel managers for hotel groups like Ryan's, Jury's, Thistle, Great Southern and Carlton so we know what makes a good host and a great stay.
Jason graduated from DIT Cathal Burgha Street while Khris graduated from Galway IT. Both understand the demands of hospitality but our motto is the Guest comes first. Both hosts are well placed to ensure your stay with us will be friendly, professional, hopefully a little informative and fun.
Check in is from 2pm onwards.
Check out is on or before 12pm.
Smoking is only permitted outdoors.
We do not accept pets unless agreed in advance.
We ask that noise levels be kept low to respect other residents comfort.
Khris Veldman and Jason Foody have been together for over seven years and married in Dec 2016
Our usual day jobs are in education and training which is directly related to the Global Oil and Gas and Renewable energy sectors. We love our work but as we trained as hotel managers in the 90's we still have a passion and love for service and hospitality.
Khris always wanted his own Boutique Property but luck stopped him from building it in 2008, just before the recession. The Hospitality Industry got hit hard over the past 8 years but is beginning to rebound now.
Jason's favourite pastime is spending time with his two sons, usually keeping up on and with his two sons, Paris and Harrison who are 12 and 14 years old and live in Northern Queensland, Australia with their Mum Jacqui. We try and bring the boys to Ireland at least once a year. (So they don't forget what snow and cold feel like obviously )
Khris's favourite pastime/hobbie is spending time in wine and spirit shops looking at things in old dusty bottles he usually cant afford. He also loves to study Wine and Spirits with his Whiskey/Whisky tastings very popular amongst friends and colleagues.
There is usually a bottle something ready to be drunk in the wine cave so why not join us for a glass. The blind tastings can be great fun in a small group.
We look forward to hosting your visit and welcoming you to our Airbnb.
