“Amazing”
Reviewed July 24, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Immaculate house with amazing views from the large decked balcony. Soo peaceful and private,yet only a few minutes walk down to the village..Thanks to the owners for the generous Welcome pack...it was greatly appreciated. We have brought home wonderful memories of outstanding sunsets and the unexpected arrival of 3 deer on the hill at the side of the house. No need to pack the kitchen sink as the house is well stocked with soo many extras. Fabulous week, thanks Siobhan

“Can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed June 29, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Just back from a fabulous 5 days at Davaar. The accomodation is immaculate and very cosy! It offers breathtaking views from the balcony looking out to the sea and the small town below! I highly recommend this to others looking for the perfect accomodation in Mallaig!

I've just spent a week here with my stepson and his two boys aged 10 and 13. We found Davaar exceeded our expectations in every way.
It is situated in the perfect position to overlook Sky Rhum and Eigg, which provide quite exceptional views. Mallaig itself is wall to wall with eateries, bars and shops, so there are plenty of options. The Clachan, which advertises real ale, did not have any available during our stay!
As a cottage Davaar was fully equipped with every single thing you could possibly want from games to DVDs to books. The rooms are beautifully appointed and very comfortable and relaxing.
It was an absolute pleasure to stay here and can recommend it without any reservations whatsoever.
Thanks Siobhan.

Myself and my family have had the great pleasure to stay at "Davaar" on many different occasions and always find ourselves booking again. It's a perfect home for any family wanting to get away. The location is ideal, walking distance from the local shops, bars and local pool and the views from the decking are spectacular when the weather is right. We can't wait for our next visit later this year.

We enjoyed our Easter weekend at Davaar. The views are spectacular and even on a bad weather day, this is a great place to relax. Having two living rooms is handy when travelling with family and friends as there's always a place for peace and quiet. The kitchen is well equiped and we cooked a delicious roast of local lamb on Easter Sunday. The house now has WiFi which worked well.

“The Perfect Getaway”
Reviewed February 21, 2016 for a stay in October 2015

We enjoyed a fabulous week with our 3yr-old son at Davaar. It’s a very spacious, beautifully appointed and well-cared for bungalow, with every conceivable creature comfort (including some board games and Lego for the little’un) anyone could wish for. A week of fantastic weather certainly added to the enjoyment, allowing us to eat some meals on the deck area (in October!). The views across the Sound of Sleat, towards Skye and Rum - particularly when the sun is setting - are fantastic. We found Davaar to be an ideal “home-from-home”, perfectly situated for exploring the local and surrounding area. Thoroughly recommended.

“Perfect holiday location”

person found this review helpful

We spent a week at this lovely house in September 2015. The house itself sits a short walk away from the harbour and centre of Mallaig with wonderful uninterrupted views looking over to Skye, Eigg and Rum. Everything you need for a comfortable holiday is provided, sometimes even sunny weather, with lots of room a great facilities. A welcome pack was waiting for us which was much appreciated, so thoughtful of the owner. This is a great location for exploring the beautiful surrounding area, Loch Morar and the lovely beaches of Silver Sands a short drive or cycle away. We will certainly book again.
