“Wonderful house in a fantastic location”
Reviewed February 14, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Situated in the beautiful small town of Banchory within walking distance to all the local amenities, including some excellent pubs and close to almost all of the areas main tourist attractions, the location of ‘Greenways’ is fantastic.

My family were fortunate to spend a month at the house, whilst we were waiting to move in to our own home in the area. We loved the property so much, we didn’t want to leave. The house is large, warm, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. There is everything you could want and more. The beds were comfortable (and I’m fussy) and every form of luxury is provided, including loads of big fluffy towels!

We arrived after a long flight to be greeted by an enormous bouquet of flowers in the kitchen, tea, coffee, milk, bread and a good selection of provisions to see us through our first night. It was all very much appreciated. Janet is an amazing hostess and contacted us by phone several times throughout our stay to check everything was okay with the house and we were happy.

We stayed during January so couldn’t make use of the lovely garden, equipped with a BBQ and furniture, but we did make good use of the large log store for the open fire.

I can’t recommend “Greenways” highly enough. It really is a home away from home. Don’t be deceived by the outside photograph, internally the house is very large, modern but with loads of character.

Don’t hesitate to book, you really wont find anything better anywhere.

Aww thank you so much for such a lovely review. So glad you were comfortable and warm, it was a cold time of year. Our housekeeper does a great job and you are right it’s bigger than it looks in the pictures. Good luck in your own house.

“Well appointed and equipped comfortable home”
Reviewed March 20, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We were a party of anglers fishing the nearby River Dee. The house is conveniently located for both the river and town. Prior to the visit I was concerned that the house looked from the photos rather small to accommodate 8 guests as advertised, however a substantial extension at the rear comprising kitchen, dining area and utility meant there was plenty of room. The fittings and furnishings were to a good standard, there was plenty of crockery, glasses etc so we didn't end up drinking wine out of teacups as can happen in some rental properties. Most importantly the place was clean (we had been very disappointed on a previous trip to another property in the area). The only gripe we had was that the driveway, although plenty long enough to accommodate four or five vehicles was rather narrow and flanked by a wall on both sides for most of its length which meant judicious parking and entry/exit from the vehicle on one side only for any cars parked below the one at the top of the drive. In summary however we were very pleased with the property, enjoyed our stay and if we go fishing again next year we will be looking to re-book.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We do call the house a tardis as it bigger than it looks! Glad you didn't have to drink out of teacups and well done on the parking, you do have to be clever and park close to the dividing wall, sometimes we make the passengers get out before reversing. Our housekeeper does a great job I will let her know you think so too.. Thank you.

“Beautiful home, perfect customer service, would definitely recommend.”
Reviewed July 27, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

our party consisted of myself, my partner, our 16 & 9 yr olds plus our 7month baby and my parents. This home (I use the term "home" deliberately) was superb. The pictures do not do it justice and you are wow'd immediately. We were able to be together but not on top of one another and our lil one adored the open plan kitchen in his walker. The gardens front & rear were stunning, the amenities provided meant it was a home from home, I simply could not find fault in any way. Customer service, again superb, this lady actually amended her own plans just to accommodate our needs and was so kind and friendly from the beginning... any negatives... yes....we didn't stay longer!

So glad you enjoyed yourselves, it helped that the weather was fantastic. Your comments are very kind, we were happy to rearrange our own stay to help out, it just meant I had to do the housekeeping before I could leave and I'm pretty sure I was not up to the usual standard....
