“Beautiful retreat”
Reviewed June 19, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had a very pleasant 3 night stay in Kinkell Holiday Apartment. We were given a very warm welcome but never felt imposed upon. Access to the apartment is separate and private from the main house below and there is outside seating for sole use of the occupants, so your certainly given your own space to freely enjoy yourself.

The apartment is tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and has ever comfort needed for a short or extended stay. I had thought for the online photos that apartment would be fairly compact but it was much more roomy than I had anticipated. The beds were comfortable and everything worked (including the internet!). We also appreciated the small attention to detail like hot water bottles in the bedside cabinet drawers and ample towels beyond what we would possibly need.

The location of the apartment is perfectly situated for touring the upper regions of Skye. We found some of the most beautiful scenery we had ever seen only a few miles from Kinkell. The fairy Glen is a must!

All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Kinkell and particularly appreciated the apartments comforts on one very windy rainy evening where retreating to the indoors was a far more favourable option than the other options available to us.

My sister and me stayed here 4 days.

The apartment is very comfortable, extremely clean and definitely spotless. You can find all that you need on it. You can feel it like at home.

The apartment is in a perfect location for exploring the island.

Iona & Joseph are the best people that you can find it when you are traveling around the world.

If you're lucky enough to meet up with your wonderful cat, you fall in love with him.

100% recommended

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us, and appreciated the little touches such as the biscuits, but at £150 for a 2 night stay in a 2 bedroom apartment on the Isle of Skye, we are very reasonably priced. We normally only offer a 3 night minimum stay but we were happy to let you use the apartment for just the 2 nights at the reduced price.

I stayed with my daughter for 4 nights on Skye, looking for a comfortable place that allowed for some freedom in case of a rainy day.
The apartment is spacious and fully equipped with everything needed. Nice touches, like biscuits, tea and milk in the fridge add to the impression of entering a home ready to be lived in.
Luckily the weather was fine during our stay so we could enjoy the great outdoors. But in the evening we could make good use of the large living area complete with CD and DVD players and a good selection of DVDs for all ages. The kitchen was also fully equipped allowing us the to prepare our own meals.
Check in and out couldn't have been easier and contact with the owners living downstairs was very pleasant.
The apartment was spotlessly clean and the pictures provided on the booking web page are accurate and but they can't show the welcoming feel once you enter the apartment.

We enjoyed our stay on the island and in this apartment very much and will hopefully be back one day. Until then I will recommend this place to friends and colleagues.
