“Fantastic fantastic fantastic”
Reviewed March 21, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Have just returned from a mid week break at these apartments. The owners were first class and gave us a warm welcome and showed us around the apartment. The apartment was very clean and spacious. There really was nothing missed out and after a bit of a journey it was so thoughtful of the owners to have placed tea coffee and milk in the kitchen for us, it really is all the small touches such as these that made our stay so relaxing and comfortable. The living room and kitchen are open plan with beautiful bay windows that look onto the garden and the firth of Clyde ahead. the kitchen is well equipped with everything you could possibly need for a holiday stay. there is a dish washer (tabs provided) and a washing machine. One of the reasons we booked here is because it is advertised as dog friendly and it certainly is. The apartment is situated on a hill about a five min drive into the town of Rothesay and about a 15 min walk. The owners took the time to advise us of places to go and see. If you like wildlife its on your doorstep just look for the seals basking on the rocks to the south of the apartments near the Victorian Fernery. If you are a star gazer then head round to the other side of the island to Ettrick Bay (the dark side with little or no light pollution) The start are amazing and if you are really lucky like us you might catch sight of the aurora borealus or a solar eclipse. all in all this is one of the best holiday lets I've stayed in and would love to go back soon, its an ideal spot to stay and base yourself for exploring the islands many walks.

Had a brilliant weekend here 16/1/15, we couldn't have had a better welcome from David & Elaine nothing was a bother to them,they showed us round & where everything was.We were on a family weekend away so had both lower apartments which was great as you had the main door which you locked then you could just walk between both. My daughter & son in law got us this as a gift for our Christmas & could not have chose better. Thanks for a lovely stay. We would love to return.

Just home from a fantastic weekend away with all my family. We had 2 apartments within this amazing house. The views were stunning. The apartments were very modern with everything we needed to make it a luxury break away. The owners Elaine and David are friendly and i loved the personal touch, such as books, games, toys for the kids. Even a selection of dvds. My son was so happy it also had wifi included. We will all be back again.

Stayed here with my wife for the weekend and must say this has been the closest thing to home with warm, wonderful & welcoming people. Elaine & David are great hosts! they gave us a tour of the apartment & grounds, advised us on things to do around the island and also provided us with a great information booklet which had very handy info (Restaurants, pubs, sightseeing, activities etc) would definitely recommend to anyone who wanted a weekend getaway to chill out, enjoy the sights & meet good folk! Located atop a big hill which was a great suntrap (when the sun is out in Scotland lol) with lots of benches, seating areas & a well maintained garden to lie down in. The actual apartment itself was great too, very spacious, tidy & homely. The town center is not far away either, around a 5min drive in the car or around £6 in a taxi. I would also recommend checking out Ettrick bay as there is a nice cafe with a good view and also Scalpsie bay for the seals, If you also want to go out for something to eat make sure to visit Harry Haws the food was delicious & great value. All in all we had a great time here & cant wait to go back!
