“Wonderful, clean, spacious, and a huge plus is the washer/dryer :)”

Our party of five, which included an 18 month old, stayed here in late July. We absolutely loved this accommodation. It is in a great location for access to Isle of Skye and other sites in the area. The home is very clean and well organized and provided just about every amenity a tourist/traveler would want or need.

The back yard was lovely and had a picnic table and plenty of lawn for our grandson to play in plus a basket full of toys for him to play with which was much appreciated.

I have to say we loved everything about this place but I particularly loved that it had a washer and a dryer because those items are not too easy to find at other air b&b's around Scotland, at least for us not too many other accommodations provided such . Much appreciated especially travelling with a little child. I did not meet the host but my daughter did when we first arrived and she was quite gracious and informative, plus they live next door and we knew they were available if there were any questions or issues, which there were not. I highly recommend booking this accommodation if you want to explore Isle of Skye and the surrounding area.

“OK for 3 people”
Reviewed August 27, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

The guest house had great reviews and I can see why some comments were deserved:
- good central base to explore the island
- beds were very comfortable - highlight of the house
- kitchen was modern
- comfortabe for 3 adults
but
- minimal contact with owner, hard to find, major pot holes up very long shared driveway, TV not operational, living space small due to couches too large for the space.

“Beautiful house in beautiful location”
Reviewed July 18, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Shanuri is a beautiful house in a beautiful location; secluded but useful location for exploring the Isle of Skye. We were comfortable with 5 adults staying. Easy distance to beach and small supermarket.

“Great base for our Skye visit”
Reviewed July 14, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We really enjoyed our stay here, very spacious for five of us, and very peaceful. It's about a 40 minute drive to Portree, very easy as we hired a car. The owner is very nice and dropped in to check that everything was going well, we would definitely stay here again!

“Good choice !”
Reviewed June 9, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The property is exactly as described and we did enjoyed our stay there . It is a good starting point to visit the Isle of Skye and we are glad that we selected it . The Shanuri Guesthouse is not as close to the sea as the pictures seem to indicate and in April the road ( about 1 km) to get there was very rough ! The TV only offers WEB programmation but the WIFI is very fast ! Otherwise everything was perfect .

“Perfect”
Reviewed May 30, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We are just back from a long weekend in Skye. Shanuri was the perfect accommodation for a perfect weekend.
Elsa Lou was brilliant to deal with. The house was great and the location was an ideal base in order to explore the island. The house was spotless, the beds extremely comfortable and there was everything you could possibly need to make your stay enjoyable.
It was easy to find, 1 mile from Broadford where there is a co-op, petrol station and other shops also there is a hotel at the bottom of the road if you wish to eat out locally.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Shanuri to anyone wishing to visit Skye.

“great house and great location”
Reviewed April 4, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

I stayed in this house with my 3 children for a week in Broadford we fell in love with the house and place. The house is ideally located, beautifully designed and we hada a memorable week there.

I travelled with my wife and 3 children and we were very comfortable there.

A few ideas is that for 5 or 6 it is a little bit tight. The living room area is much smaller than in the picture and a larger table is required for 5 or 6 ( as advertised) to have a meal together as the living room table and area is very small for that amount of people.

A lamp in the dining room would also be good and the internet connection was not the best.

If you are looking for a great house in a great location look no further. It's fantastic
