Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. This property is fabulous, great location and has all you need, extremely well equipped and very clean and well kept... Shuffleboard court is a great fun game loads of fun on rainy days and evenings...loved the drum kit too! Sept 2012.
  2. Excellent property, within walking distance of a few places to eat and drink, which are all fine, but secluded and excellent for the dog as stone beach with walk along the coast right outside. We struck out to several golf courses, John O Groats and a couple of Mountain Bike trails down at Golspie - all round recommended and very well kitted out, pity we couldn’t enjoy the terrace with the weather we had. Shuffleboard court provided endless fun. April 2012.
  3. A Fantastic location beside the sea. No matter the scottish weather, storms included, a location to enjoy the views and relax. Dec 2011.
  4. Comfortable spacious property. Great tranquil location and beautiful dawn to wake up to with views from the master bedroom in particular. Loved the games room with the shuffleboard. Loved being able to spot seals and seal pups as well as the oil rigs and wind turbines out at sea through the telescope and on one clear night Jupiter could be spotted near the moon. The dog loved the venue too! Sept 2011.
  5. The property location was perfect. The house itself was clean and beautifully proportioned. We all had ample room. The children loved the 45ft Shuffle board alley. We saw dolphins and seals passing by and I did not want to come home- all in all a perfect holiday. Thank you. Aug 2011.
  6. Had a fantastic holiday 11/6/11-18/06/11. The house fulfilled all expectations. Great house and great location! A definite bonus is that there are 2 wings for the bedrooms, ensuring privacy and a bit of quiet time away from the main area.We took full advantage of the shuffleboard and drum kit! Would go again but for the long journey (9 hours). I would definitely recommend this house! I would advise families to take all supplies(as luckily we did) as nearest supermarket (Tesco) is over 30 miles away. The one local shop is very expensive & limited as you can imagine in a small fishing village). Breathtaking surroundings. June 2011.
  7. A fabulous property for a family gathering or groups of friends. Plenty of space to spread out and having 3 bathrooms is excellent. All mod cons. Kitchen is a bit echoey but so what! The views are wonderful. April 2011.
  8. Most beautiful house in stunning location, all comforts catered for and ideal for family get together for young and old. Worth getting up early just to see the sunrise. March 2011.
  9. Secluded but still close enough to village of Helmsdale to make use off amenities. Lobster Ponds decorated to a modern high standard. Dec 2010.
  10. Spacious accommodation, large enclosed garden with amazing views of the sea. Certainly has the wow factor! Nov 2010.
  11. Nov: Warm,very spacious, everything in new-looking cond’, beautifully clean and tidy with all you could need from kitchen to entertainment. Views and and early morning beach walks were rewarded with sight of wonderful wildlife. You just couldn’t find a better place in November. It’s in a very sheltered spot so wrap up when venturing away from your holiday home. Wonderful. Oct 2010.
  12. The property is fantastic, 10 out 10. Oct 2010.
  13. Property was great spacious and clean location was exactly as in brochure, a step out of the garden and your on the shore! Oct 2010.
  14. Fabulous house in incredible setting. The photos don’t do it justice. July 2010.
  15. The photographs do not do the property justice. They do not convey how light and very very spacious the property is. June 2010.
  16. Excellent games room, plenty of space, well equipped kitchen, good location. May 2010.
  17. Very spacious, great views. May 2010.
  18. Photos did not do property justice. May 2010.
  19. It was even better than the website showed. Aug 2009.
  20. Very peaceful location, very spacious house providing ample room for large families, secure fenced garden ideal for small children & pets. Telescope (in need of repair) provided hours of fun star gazzing etc. This year there was a tumble dryer which was a godsend. Aug 2009.
