“Wonderful accommodation on beautiful Jura!”
Reviewed October 12, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Jura was everything we hoped for and much more. Staying in Island View made our holiday even more fabulous. The bungalow is beautifully decorated and provided us with everything we could possibly need - even a huge supply of logs for the wood-burning stove!
We were also provided with lots of information about the island, including maps. This enabled us to plan ahead etc.
We hope to return to Jura one day and would not hesitate to book Island View again!

“Value for money summer family holiday”
Reviewed August 29, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This house is perfectly placed in a very safe location for families and it also allows dogs. After a long drive it was a welcoming sight and the information provided by Annie was spot on. The living room is an amazing room for the morning sun, which we had plenty of, 3 superb bedrooms and a fully functional kitchen. There is a fully stocked shop (not open Sunday) for things you need/ have forgotten would advise big shop enroute ( we came via Oban so plenty of opportunity) excellent pub and bistro both serving lovely food all within walking distance. Jura is awesome - give it a go, stay at island view you will not be disappointed

“Fabulous place to stay”
Reviewed May 19, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Island View is a spacious, light and airy bungalow, with a well equipped kitchen/diner. The large lounge has a log burner making it very cosy and the views from the large picture window across the bay are stunning. Even though Jura is a small island Craighouse has an excellent pub and Bistro and very well stocked shop. All the Islanders we met were friendly and helpful. The walking , scenery and wildlife are spectacular well worth a visit.

“Best ever holiday”
Reviewed May 16, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Warm comfortable homely cottage with a fantastic outlook. Jura is beautiful, rugged walking and a lovely long beach. We had spectacular weather, sunshine blue skies and a sparkling sea. The walking was excellent, really rugged in places, spectacular scenery. The water at the beach is clear and clean. We ate out at the hotel in the evening, good food at very reasonable prices.
An excellent holiday well worth the journey.

“Magical stay”
Reviewed November 3, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We are still reflecting on the magic of Jura and the wonderful stay we had in Island View. The house was gorgeous - comfortable, cosy, warm and so well equipped. We wanted for nothing - it was a true home from home. The views from the front window were just breathtaking and we were treated to sightings of seals, swans, heron, wild goats, stags and hinds and otters - all on the beach in front of the house! We will definitely be back!

“Stunning location”
Reviewed October 2, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We spent a week on Jura in late August, The island is wild and beautiful and being able to get so close to the wildlife and the many Red Deer roaming the hills was a real treat. Island View did not disappoint - it's spotlessly clean, cosy and in the most stunning location right by the beach. It's also amazingly well equipped. Craighouse provided everything we needed - great shop, bistro (with super home bakes), hotel and pub serving really good food. A fabulous holiday in all respects!

This is really a great house.
a LOT of thought has been put in to whats needed for a holiday rental, small things like a great dvd and book collection when its rainy or midgey! and a home away from home feel.
lovely living room with a view out to sea esp good fro breakfast if sunny.
