The bungalow was lovely, warm and welcoming. It was plenty big enough and equipped for five adults. Very comfy and clean. Would highly recommend it. Beaches, castles and whisky distilleries close to visit.

Quaint property near to beach

  • 5 of 5

Karen has been the perfect host & her property was perfect for our stay in the area, we were left a lovely welcome pack of wine, chocolates & doggie treats for Frankie & Bobby (Our chihuahuas) nice touch

Her communication has been quick & responsive

My wife, our 2 chihuahuas & of course myself loved the location, 5 min drive to the beach (it was raining!!) comfortable 20min walk, with plenty of parking & a coffee shop

No hesitation in recommending her property

Thank you Karen!!

Chris, Jo, Frankie & Bobby 😊

Some nice touches.

  • 3 of 5

It was lovely to arrive and find wine, chocolates and dog chews, thank you.

Cottage was nice and clean but there were a few problems, the main ones being: unable to shower as water temperature fluctuated so much, curtains and blinds in bedrooms so light that we were wakened up as soon as it was daylight and the beds soft and creaky.

Great location for our Visit to Aberdeen

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice well equipped ,clean Cottage .Close to beach and all things to do in the Aberdeen area. The king bed is more like an American Queen size, comfy. The twins in the other bedroom we did not use . The TV remotes did not work after a couple days we determined we could operate it directly with very hard to see controls across the bottom frame of the unit. The tub shower was difficult to get hot and cold balance for a continuous temp shower . If you like to take a bath great . It would have been really good to have a Mr. Coffee drip coffee maker. Instant with hot water not good . It was nice having a washing machine Hang clothes out to dry can be tricky given the weather . Dried our clothes inside the unit . Enjoyed the location and our stay.
