“Better than the pictures!”

This is a very spacious, clean, well modernised beautiful apartment. The only downside is the 2 storey climb to get to the front door, but then again, the views from the living room through the bay window are stunning. You can sense the pride the owners have in this cracker apartment by the way it's kept clean and tidy, with all the mod cons. Can't fault it at all. 2 minute walk into Oban town centre, and a 1 minute drive from the supermarket. Recommend it if you are staying in Oban.

“A gem by the sea”
Reviewed July 30, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

Stayed here with my husband and 2 children age 8 and 2. The apartment is lovely and very spacious. The photos do not do it justice. The décor is gorgeous and it has a homely 'by the sea' feel to it. The owners have clearly gone to a lot of effort to ensure you are well cared for and comfortable. The welcome pack was appreciated as were the the books toys and DVDs. The beds were comfortable, parking is not an issue as you can park for free providing you don't mind a short walk. There is a leisure centre in the town with water slide and a nice park, the beach was great for the kids weather permitting. Oban itself was picturesque. The only thing that would have improved my stay slightly was a dryer not that I go away to do laundry but drying towels after swimming was a pain. There is a free standing clothes airer but difficult to dry towels on after swimming. I knew there was no dryer before I went so not a complaint in the slightest. All in all a lovely low key holiday with great accommodation that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

“Feels like home - but with that amazing Oban sea view!”

Just coming to the end of my first stay at Little Bay Apartment - honestly couldn't have been better. The owners have been very helpful with good information and communication throughout the booking process.

The apartment itself is very clean with a lovely kitchen, great sized sitting room - and awesome views form the sitting room and master bedroom. Equipment level is very good, with decent wifi and a smart tv in the sitting room from which you can easily access catchup tv services as well as Amazon or Netflix (bring your own account).... Great for crashing out after a Ben Nevis climb!

The seafront and town centre are both just a few mins walk from the front door, as is the ferry terminal (we went for a great day out on Mull). There is a Tesco superstore within about 5 mins walk (shortcut through back street behind the apartment) which saves you having to get the car out to go shopping. Parking is a bit of a pain, but honestly is easily outweighed by all the positives. When I coudn't find a parking space near the apartment for a couple of days, I parked my car on the pay and display 2 mins away, was only a fiver for each whole day.

In summary, great place to stay with most of the comforts of home - and you will never tire of the view.

I have just returned from a short break at Little bay, the apartment is fantastic, everything has been thought of by the owners.
The apartment is very clean, comfortable and well decorated.
As a light sleeper I was a bit worried about the noise due to the close proximity to the road, railway and ferry terminal, this was not a problem at all and I slept very well. (I was in the front bedroom).
I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to friends and family.
Thanks for the welcome pack this was more than I have received elsewhere, and after a long journey much appreciated.

“Fantastic Apartment in Great Location”
Reviewed May 20, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

person found this review helpful

Lots to say about this place. First of all, the location is very close to the Ferry/Train and Bus ports. Easy walking distance of 5 minutes. Likewise, it's only 5 mins back into the town. The apartment or Flat is located on the second floor of 3 levels. Stairs only into this property.

Very modern and welcoming. Lovely, clean and scented smell as you arrive in. There was a lovely welcome basket with some goodies for us, as well as a handwritten welcome card. Extra brownie points for the fresh flowers and the pint of milk in the fridge. The little things make the difference.

The flat comprises of two bedrooms, sitting room, kitchen/diner, utility room and bathroom. The master bedroom has a double bed with a view onto the Harbour. Very spacious and nice decor. The second bedroom is a twin room and is a comfortable size but nowhere near as generous as the master bedroom. Beds were very comfortable and I think there was down bedding in the master room.

Large sitting room with fantastic views onto the harbour. Two large sofas, and single armchair, all very comfortable, could easily seat 7 people if required. Tv, games, iPod stereo, information guide and even the local paper. Very nice decor and furniture.

The kitchen was very well equipped with usual kitchen appliances and the utility room just off the kitchen. Dining table and 4chairs located in the kitchen. There was even bits and pieces left for kitchen use to start us off, use like a few washing tablets and dishwasher tablets.

As the location was just a few minutes from town centre, the outside road was quiet with traffic and quiet location. Close to all the amenities, harbour, shops, restaurants and bars. Lots of handy and useful information also listed in the flat.

It was really a lovely base for ourselves whilst we were in Oban for the Oban Live festival. There is nothing I could really fault with it. The windows are due to be replaced but it still didn't spoil the view. My only complaint is due to the age of the building plug sockets are limited, however, there are some plug extensions in the twin room. Nothing to really complain about but to be aware of.

As a part of 3 friends we really liked the apartment, location and service received. We'd definitely come back again.
