This place is perfect. The house is every bit as beautiful as the pictures make it look. Simple and clean, the decoration is tasteful and doesn’t detract from the view. The kitchen is very well equipped and Thomas left us a welcome package of milk, eggs and a bottle of wine.
Thomas was quick to respond to every question from booking though how to operate the windows. We had trouble with the hot water in one bathroom one day and he had a plumber out within 12hrs of my emailing him.
The house is warm and cozy and the WiFi works great.
We walked around Stein, hiked out on th Waternish peninsula, ate at Loch Bay (amazing!) and enjoyed visiting Skyeskins, the nearby sheepskin tannery. There’s a great coffee shop there too. It’s in a yurt, and called Yurtea and Coffee.
Overall, we loved it and wished we could stay longer.
Had an lovely relaxing time at Salt Winds in Waternish. Beautiful house and location. Comfortable, spacious bedrooms, and large open plan living space, all with stunning views. All bathrooms spotlessly clean and very high standard, like the rest of house. Kitchen was very well equipped and a joy to use. Managed to have breakfast and dinner outside all four days, with the midgies only an occasional problem when the wind dropped! Really didn't want to leave and looking forward to going back.
We arrived home yesterday after spending 2 weeks at salt winds celebrating our silver wedding anniversary. The house was stunning, even better than the photos suggest. The views are amazing, particularly the sunsets. We had 2 days of cold rain where we lit the lovely log burner followed by 12 days of hot, actually very hot sunshine. We sat on the decking watching dolphins play in the bay below. It was magical.
The bathrooms and kitchen are all modern and everywhere was immaculately clean. The beds were comfortable.
Our dog had a great time watching the wildlife and chatting through the fence with the little dogs next door. It’s great to find a truly luxurious house that accepts dogs!
We ate out at the loch bay restaurant and the edinbane inn and the food was so good.
The owner, Thomas, was quick to respond to any questions and very pleasant.
I would happily have stayed here for ever. Thanks for a fabulous holiday. Hope to be back soon!
Salt Winds provided us with an unforgettable stay on Skye. The house is beautifully equipped with great attention to detail. Location wise, it can't be beaten - the views are spectacular. Easy walking distance to a great pub and lovely restaurant. We had a wonderful week. Thank you.
Having a fantastic time at Waternish. Beautiful views and a stunning lodge with everything you could possibly need. Well done Salt Winds. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
We have just returned from a fantastic break on Skye. The house is so comfortable and beautiful. It has everything you could need, and feels truly special. Above all though is the setting - waking up to that view everyday feels like a real privilege, it will stay with us.
Skye is so special - with so much to see, you just have to get out and experience as much as you can; the feeling of coming home to Salt Winds after a day of adventure and exploration was just heavenly.
Waternish is so stunning - I am running out of superlatives; if you are hesitant, don’t be, book, book, book! You won’t regret it.
Oh where to begin... The house it just amazing, so well thought out. The open plan nature of the living space is wonderful allowing you to see the beautiful scenery wherever you look out. The TV and stereo equipment kept us well entertained and there is a large amount of info about the island and walks you can do. Lots of books and DVDs and games to keep you occupied in the evenings too
The kitchen is so well equipped, we had a great time cooking together.
Everything about Saltwinds is fantastic the views are breath taking, every time the light changes it adds a magical sparkle to your visit
Thomas your house is so fantastic we didn't want to leave.. Thank you for hosting us, I can't wait to come back...
