Luxury chalet in tranquil coastal location with magnificent views of Hoy, beautiful sunsets over Stromness and interesting bird life. These chalets are extremely well equipped and everything is provided including the BBQ. Open plan layout leads out to picnic table, lawned area, fields and sea beyond. The play area and putting green were a favorite with the children. Kathy and Keith Bichen were excellent hosts and provided a daily bulletin of events on Orkney. A fantastic base to explore wonderful Orkney.

Buxa Chalet is a perfect holiday rental property for our party (Mum, Dad and teenage son). It's located in an utterly idyllic setting with uninterrupted views of the islands of Graemsay and Hoy. The main living space is very well designed with light pouring in from various parts of the room. Bedrooms are compact, but the double bed is huge and delightfully comfortable. The kitchen area is full of everything you might need, and the wireless signal is strong and consistent (important for our teenager!). We have enjoyed several Orkney holidays in previous years and found that with this accommodation, we could simply have relaxed here for the entire week making occasional forays down to the beach to watch the birdlife and to marvel at the profusion of orchids. We could not recommend this place more strongly. Grateful thanks to Kathy and her family.

Vielen, vielen Dank für einen schönen Bericht. Wir sind so froh , dass Sie die Villa, die Ansichten und die Wärme genießen . Apologies über die Langsamkeit des Satelliten WiFi-Verbindung. Wir dürfen 30 GB Datennutzung im Monat und leider erschöpft der vorherigen Gäste , dass durch Online-Gaming und Herunterladen von Filmen . Unser Provider drosselt das System , wenn dies geschieht , welche verlangsamt , aber nicht völlig von der Wi-Fi zum Glück geschlossen. Wir kommen jetzt zu warnen Leute , die Wi-Fi für E-Mails , etc. verwenden und nicht , um es für Dinge, die essen, Daten zu verwenden. Wir hoffen, dass Sie wieder kommen Sie uns besuchen!
