“A very warm and welcoming home from home”
Reviewed October 5, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

A very warm welcome greeted my wife and I as we arrived at the chalet. Rhoda and Neil went out of their way to make us feel truly welcome. Upon arrival there were fresh flowers, fruit and wonderful Salmon and smoked Salmon in the fridge. I had last visited the Isle of Lewis in 1974 and had longed to go back to see the beaches of Dalbeg and Dalmore. We could not have picked a better place to stay. The Chalet is very well appointed, it was warm and comfortable and everything that we needed from holiday accomodation. It is pet friendly too and our two dogs had a great time. The location at South Shawbost is ideally placed and within easy reach of all of the fantastic beaches and places of interest on the Island. We highly recommend this chalet and we will definitely be back next year. Mark & Lorraine Wright

“Good quality, relaxing self catering”

This is a stylish and comfortable unit. A purpose designed chalet, with high quality fixtures and fittings made staying there a delight, we were greeted by the owner who lives near-by. She also kindly supplied fresh salmon fruit and a home made cake.

I could find no problems. A gem of a find

Blair arrived here, no car, after all he was visiting fom Australia, why come to the West Side of Lewis without a car, he did not drive, so he may have been best staying in Stornoway in a B & B, however this is what he chose.I went to the effort of taking him all around the scenic routes, Dalbeg Beach, Dalmore Beach, Black House Village, Broch at Dun Carloway, the village of Tolsta Chaolais, Invited him for lunch at Callanish Standing Stones, a walk around the Stones and then to Stornoway. He could never have done all this in one week by bus. I certainly went out of my way for Blair to enjoy Lewis Scenes and hospitality. I may add all at my expense, so just to get a good on Trip Advisor was not that great for us. The rest is great and that is not us going out of our way.
