“Hospitable place to stay”
Reviewed 4 weeks ago for a stay in May 2018

The Kabuis Apartment was just perfect for the two of us, with a nice kitchen and all amenities for self-catering. Location was fine and north-to-south ends of Lewis/Harris easily reachable. Stornoway and its museum, restaurants and pubs is ideal for a full day away. Neil and Rhoda, our hosts were very kind and interesting - giving us much information about local history and that of St Kitts. Some nice surprises of a culinary nature were left in our kitchen!

“An ideal holiday accomodation for couples or singletons”
Reviewed June 5, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Warm and friendly welcome from Rhoda, Neil and Rusti.A welcome pack of fresh and smoked salmon, fresh fruit and flowers adds a very personal touch, and is very much appreciated. The apartment is well situated and within easy driving distances of many of the visitor attractions, like the Callanish standing stones, the Arnoil blackhouse, the Norkse Iron mill, and beaches. Highlights for me were the the trip to St Kilda (make sure you book this early prior to your trip to Lewis), and the sunsets at the Callanish standing stones. Thanks Rhoda, Neil and Rusit.

My partner, Jo, and I stayed in the small cottage at Kabuis Apartments at the beginning of August and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartments was excellent with everything you could possibly need and our host Rhoda was second to none even providing us with some lovely fresh fish to make some dinner options very easy!

“Very comfortable and friendly”
Reviewed July 5, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The cottage is small but very comfortable for two.
Rhoda and Neil were extremely welcoming and helpful. Rhoda's cakes were lovely and she also provided some local fish which was excellent.
The area is good for touring all of the island and not too far from Stornaway. We also visited Harris from there. It is close to a lot of the standing stones and some lovely beaches - the island of Bernera and around Uig were particularly lovely.

“A superb apartment.”
Reviewed July 3, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Spotlessly clean and up to date with all the mod cons. Ideal for a couple and dogs welcomed.
Beautiful beach a 5 minute drive away. A great base for exploring the northern part of the Western Isles.
Owner, Rhoda, could not have been more helpful in giving advice about various places to visit and giving local information.
Highly recommended
