We had a lovely time at Bayview Croft. The cottage was very clean and comfortable, with everything we needed for an enjoyable stay.
The views were amazing from every room. The washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher all worked well.
The cottage is very well located for exploring the whole of Skye. Highlights for us included a Misty Isle boat trip to Loch Coruisk and sea kayaking at Eilean Donan Castle (over the bridge). We also enjoyed the Fairy Pools, which we visited late in the day after hearing how busy it was. Arriving at 4pm we easily found a car parking space and the crowds were very much thinning out.
We also discovered Talisker Bay on a beautiful sunny day. It's spectacular and well worth a visit to swim in the sea.
We didn't meet Hannah but she was very quick to reply to our messages and was incredibly friendly and helpful.
We had a great week in this lovely house in Skye . 3 generations with the eldest being 94 years old . House is excellent has everything you need and more - extremely comfortable and great location. Have stayed a number of times before and have already booked later in the year as we like it so much !
The house is very well fitted out all you could really need is there and more, bedrooms are all a good size and all have very nice en-suites. nice welcome with a bottle of wine and some sweet Scottish goodies. as the title says pretty much perfect, thanks Hannah
We don't have anything negative to say, the property was absolutely perfect for our Christmas week, made even better with a wonderful welcome of a bottle of wine and some shortbread.
Excellently appointed rooms, the property is spotlessly clean, decorated and furnished to a very high standard with all modern amenities. The beds were comfortable with quality linen, all towels provided. Showers and bathrooms were excellent. Washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher all there for your use.
About a 10 minute drive to Portree, which has a large Co Op for shopping. a few minutes from the main north/south Portree road.
Communication with the owner was truly excellent, responding usually within an hour. We only had one problem on arrival, with one of the toilets, but Hannah sent a plumber within the hour and all got sorted without a drama.
A few suggestions if I may:
Slip mats in the showers would be a valuable addition. My 78 year old Mother in Law almost slipped over a couple of times.
The bathroom with only a bath (two bed bedroom) needs a longer shower hose for washing hair.
Kitchen utensils and utilities were plentiful, the only things we found we needed and couldn't find was a sieve and some small baking trays that would fit into the right hand oven. (Loved the Rangemaster cooker by the way, superb).
Overall our stay in Bayview and on Skye was truly wonderful, a beautiful property with an amazing view and all the amenities a family would need while on holiday exploring the Highlands and Islands, couple this with an attentive and responsive owner who seriously cares about her tenants. Thank you Hannah
We’ve thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bayview Croft. Superb views, beautifully decorated, spacious...I could go on and on.
Each bedroom has a fab en-suite and the beds are really comfy. The kitchen is very well-equipped with all the utensils you could need.
We’d absolutely return to the house in the future. Thanks so much!
Photos don’t do this cottage justice!
Spacious inside and outside: lovely garden with tremendous views over the bay.
Great holiday with 3 generations of family.
Third time staying at beautiful Bayview Croft. View over Portree Bay to die for. Stunning garden and everything you could ask for inside. Travelled as a family of 6 and plenty of space for everyone. Made it to St Kilda this year too which was on husbands list for past few years! Already planning for Next Year.
