  4. Good place for families

    Location was perfect for a family with children. There was a park with playground equipment across the street. Walking access to downtown. Great backyard to play in. Plenty of space in the home.

  5. Spacious, Modern Accommodation

    This clean, modern, and well equipped detached villa was ideally located a short walk from a local supermarket and the town centre. Being based in Portree, of course, is an ideal location to explore the whole beautiful island of Skye. It was so helpful to have off-road parking in front of the house, enough for two mid-sized vehicles. At the rear of the house is a small enclosed garden with a useful picnic table, easily accessible from the patio doors in the large open-plan kichen/dining room. And we even had a great wi-fi signal! The downstairs toilet was really welcome, although the en-suite (including walk-in shower) upstairs, and the shared separate toilet and over-bath shower for the two other good-sized bedrooms, were excellent too. At night, after a long day exploring, we found the quietness of the area helped us have a great night's sleep as well! Would have no hesitation in recommending thIs good value accommodation to anyone. We'd love to come back and continue to explore this extraordinarily beautiful island again in the summer months.

  7. Modern property with great amenities in a convenient location

    Amazing property in a great location, a perfect hub to travel from and explore Skye! The house itself has been renovated to a very high standard, the fixtures and fittings are well thought out and the space is large enough to accommodate everyone. The bedrooms are of a good size and very comfortable, along with the bathrooms. We did not encounter any issues during the trip and the host was in regular contact to ensure we had everything we needed. Would love to visit again! Thanks

  10. Great stay!

    Easy to follow instructions! The house was as it shows in the pictures and has everything that we need during our stay. The location was good too, near to the supermarket 1 min drive and 5 mins walk, and near to most attractions in Skye. We had a lovely stay in the house with the facilities available and easy communication with the reservation manager too.

  23. Nice host and apartment with amazing view

    Our original booking was having last minute boiler issue and Ben (the host) provided us with another apartment with an amazing Portree bay view. The apartment is spacious and cozy as well. Would definitely come back if we get to visit Isle of Skye again, hopefully when the weather’s much better.

  26. Great place to stay

    Great place to stay! Portree was incredibly busy. The accommodation was large, plenty of space for family, has its own garden and parking spaces. It was clean and well equipped and comfortable. We were pleased to be able to cook our own meals as kitchen had full sized fridge/freezer and full sized cooker. Garden lovely and sunny with garden furniture for an evening drink! Thank you would definitely stay again!!

  30. Pleasant stay for a group of friends

    Our group of 2 couples and 2 friends enjoyed a 3-nights stay at this cottage which is a 10-15 minutes walk outside of Portree. Rooms are spacious and the kitchen is well equipped for cooking. Would recommend this house for a group of friends or families.

  31. Comfortable and in a good location

    The house is comfortable but a little tired. Some updates needed. Overall a good stay

    May 2024

  32. Ideal for families or couples

    Ideally located to walk to downtown Portree this house offers everything you need to stay a couple of nights on Skye. Grocery shopping is just around the corner. Facilities are in okay condition, some details would need a bit of fixing. Other than that we can totally recommend!
