We have stayed on Islay at the Annexe on a number of occasions now (at least 5) and couldn't recommend the place enough! We love the location and the accommodation. It is ideally placed with far reaching views over Loch Indaal is always spotlessly clean and has a local pub just within a nice walking distance. Maria is always very friendly and helpful. The Annexe is fully equipped with all your self catering requirements we have never been short of anything. If its wildlife that you are after on Islay the Annexe is also ideally placed for this with both Deer & Geese seen from its panoramic windows. The only thing that would stop us recommending the Annexe to anyone would be that we would be afraid that you would steal our dates!!!!!
The Annexe is fantastic - beautifully presented in a wonderful location just outside Port Charlotte (about 1 mile) with great views. The Annexe has a lovely big well equipped living/dining space, a shower room and, upstairs, a double bedroom. There is also a very convenient small hall that takes jackets, boots etc, very handy after a day walking or out on the beach. There is a picnic table and a small garden for the use of guests. This was a great find and I'd highly recommend - you won't find better.
We chose this location because of its proximity to Bruichladdich, my favorite Islay distillery, and couldn't have been happier. The Annexe itself is beautiful with comfortable furnishings in a cozy, welcoming space, and an incredible, uninterrupted view all the way to the water. Quiet, charming, isolated -- all things that turned our stay from a quick jaunt to Islay into a romantic getaway. The kitchen is well furnished, and there are excellent restaurants in Port Charlotte itself, while the rest of the island and distilleries are an easy drive away. All in all, it was a delightful stay which we hope to repeat in the future.
I've been going to Islay for about 60 years and I think the views from the annexe are possibly unbeatable. The property is set slightly out of port Charlotte in an elevated position to take maximum advantage of the views. Its ideal for a single person or a couple. Good size for 2 with a large bedroom upstairs. Well furnished and equipped and some lovely finishing touches from Maria,the owner, who lives in the adjoining property. A lovely find, enjoy
Well situated for touring the island with handy shop and pub. Be prepared for a surprise inside the property as the tastefully appointed rooms will inspire.
A very memorable experience!
This really is a lovely place to stay, have been many times-has everything that you need, and is VERY clean. The accommodation is boosted by the most amazing view-quite intoxicating-over Loch Indaal, watching the sun, and whatever else comes along! So much wildlife to see and just so relaxing.
A beautiful annexe situated a short walk from the main street in Islay. Modern furnishings throughout with magnificent views of the island. Definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Islay.
