“What a great holiday”
Reviewed August 14, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

If you are looking for a great base to relax this is it, the village is that's what it is classed as north of the border is very nice & quiet, the pub in the village serves some very good food & has a good atmosphere.
The cottage has everything you need for a holiday , clean, tidy, well equipped even a good selection of films & music just in case the Scottish weather closes in & good wifi to keep the kids happy. You do have to plan a bit to pick up supplies while out as the pub shop has limited supplies.
We found it a great base for a very relaxing holiday.

“Perfect Highland Hideaway”
Reviewed August 5, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We booked for a family escape while sailing on the west coast. The accommodation was well maintained, well equipped and clean but it was the little things which made the difference. The booking process was simple and effective but when we started to communicate directly with the owners nearer the arrival date it was clear that they cared for their guests.
A few days before arrival they contacted us to find out when we would be arriving and when we explained it would be earlier than the official checkin they let us know they would try and clean the cottage early so we could gain access and indeed true to their word we got early entry and escaped from the wind and rain outside. The rooms all had fresh flowers and even a welcome note written to us on the fridge door made us feel as though we were in a friends cottage and not a rented house. A pile of cds and dvds insured that there was something for everyone and the fire was all set awaiting a match to get us up and runnning- no searching for firelighters or kindling required.
The accommodation is simple but not sparse and there was ample parking to the rear. We were staying to meet friends- and take advantage of the local yacht marina and there was plenty of sheltered space for wet jackets and wellies to hang, endless hot water on hand. Each morning we were awoken with a stunning view down the loch and we were lucky enough to have a couple of stunning sunsets to complete a memorable holiday. Only tip would be that whilst there is a local shop (for emergencies) you would be advised to bring supplies rather than hope to buy on arrival!

Thank you for the great comments! I'm glad you liked the cottage and the arrangements. Yes, we'd agree with you that the shop in the village (part of the pub, in fact) is fairly basic, but it's great to have one at all. The shop in Ardfern has more (15 minutes away) but it's Oban or Lochgilphead for proper stocking-up.

“1st class”
Reviewed August 2, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

I visited Craobh Marina Cottages in May this year, and right from the off I knew I had made the right decision with welcome note on the door. It's the little things that make the difference. The cottage was spotless, and we'll equipped. The locals and staff are very welcoming and the setting.......well, simply stunning. If you a break to "get away from it all"..this is the place. Lots to do in and around the Marina, plenty of walks and the area is steeped in history and stunning views wherever you look. I will be going back. Thank you for making my stay a brilliant experience

“Ideal Holiday Base”
Reviewed June 5, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Located in stunning surroundings by the marina at Craobh Haven. Amazing scenery whichever direction you look and just a stones throw away from a lovely welcoming restaurant/bar. The cottage was spacious yet cosy, with all the amenities you would expect and more! The addition of a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer made the holiday so much more relaxing (no washing up to worry about and being able to dry your clothes after being caught in the Scottish rain was a bonus). The cottage was ideally situated to gain access to a variety of places of interest around Scotland. Next time we visit the area we'll definitely stay here again!

Thank you for the great review, Susan! We write those sorts of lovely things about the place, but I'm not sure people believe us. It means so much more coming from you, when you've just stayed there as a guest. Do come again!

6th visit to Scotland. 2nd time to Craobh Haven. 1st time with Craobh Haven Cottages.
The cottage is probably the best we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in a lot over the years. Very clean and well thought out and the location is perfect. The views from the lounge window are to die for. See Duncan down at the marina for local boat tours. He is a font of knowledge of the area. There are so many good seafood restaurants in Scotland now that you are spoilt for choice. Not like the old days. We will definitely be back again :-)

We had an excellent stay for our last few days of the old year and beginning of New Year. Lovely views, comfortable accommodation, fully equipped cottage, very much home from home. Ideal location for walking, history, wildlife and easy access to Oban. All instructions and booking stress free. Thank You for making it so enjoyable.
