Stunning views and quiet rural location
Loved the view from the house in the morning and amazing sky at night. A spacious house well decorated.
This home was perfect for our needs! My husband and I were traveling with two of our friends and it was so nice to come back to Jacqui's house after a long day of exploring Skye. It's close to Portree, so eating dinner in town was easy, or bringing back groceries to cook dinner in the full size kitchen was great! Having two bathrooms was also really convenient for two couples! We really enjoyed hanging out around the wood burning stove and watching movies in the living room after a fun, adventurous day out! We had so much fun actually, we stayed an extra night here!
Thanks for such a lovely place to call home for a few nights!
This property was very spacious with a stunning view. It was in the middle of a very rural area which was easy to get to with the instructions provided by the owner. There were two rooms with double beds and a children's room with twin bunk beds. The beds weren't the most comfortable however definitely served their purpose for a place to lay our heads after a long day of hiking. There was a great movie selection and a very spacious kitchen for nights spent in since the closest town was a short drive away. I would definitely stay here again when visiting Skye.
We were 4 ladies travelling and wanted to spend a couple of days in Skye. The cottage suited our needs but could not get in touch with the owner by phone when we were first arriving so had to ask a house nearby to help us find it, once we did all went well and was a great place to lay our heads after our busy days of exploring the beautiful sites.
Pros: location, location, location! Plenty of space for two families. We loved the outdoor fire pit!
Cons: The entire property was not properly cleaned. The bed did not have a duvet cover or top sheet and the fitted sheet was stained! The mattress was very uncomfortable! We were lacking in linens overall. The kitchen was also lacking some basic cooking items.
The house was well situated with beautiful views all around. It was well stocked and had ample toiletries provided. The wood burning stove was nice on a cold rainy night. The one thing that could have been improved was the beds which were not very comfortable.
