Seaside House is a traditional crofter's cottage in the popular hamlet of Luskentyre on the Luskentyre Estuary, home to the world renowned Rosamol Beach. It is beautifully decorated and furnished to a very high standard and features tweed curtains, cushions and accessories as well as local artwork. It has tasteful plaid carpet throughout that embraces the colours of the sand and sea. The kitchen is very well equipped. There is an open fire and a stove. The cottage benefits from a large porch room and a separate utility room. It sits in its own walled and fenced garden and has views of the sea over to Taransay and also the estuary and to the back the stunning mountain of Beinn Dhubh.

Seaside House is an extremely cosy and comfortable cottage that is small enough to suit a couple but large enough for a whole family or group of friends because of the two reception rooms and two bathrooms. We welcome dogs with a few house rules and a small surcharge. The property benefits from being close to the fabulous beaches meaning that you can literally walk out of the gate with your bucket & spade and be at the beach, on foot, in minutes. And if you're at the beach and realise that you've forgotten a vital part of your picnic, home is close at hand to nip back and get it.

Beautiful House
We have just enjoyed a lovely few nights at Seaside House. Nicely furnished, warm and welcoming. A 10 minute walk to the beautiful Luskentyre beach views of which can be had from the side windows of the house.

Magical cosy cottage with stunning estuary views
Beautifully furnished, well equipped cosy cottage with stunning views and easy access to the fabulous estuary. Great position on the island near the fantastic beach, and a short drive to 2 good supermarkets and great local cafes and bakeries. We spent a magical week with our family walking, swimming, sup boarding, taking trips out on the water and exploring the island. We had amazing weather but the house is well kitted out if it's less kind. A very special place.

Wonderful cottage in stunning location
This is our forth visit to Seaside House, and for good reason. Lovely cottage with all amenities, included heated towel rails. Perfect location to visit Harris, by the amazing Luskentyre estuary. We walked, cycled, surfed, body boarded and loved the Cake Shed with home made treats daily just down the lane. Thank you so much.

Paradise gained (for 2 weeks)
Lovely cottage and ever-so-helpful host. Jo was brilliant, especially given the two years between booking and staying!!! Luskentyre and Harris is unforgettable, and we’re I able I would exchange silly money for this cottage. Photo is sunset from the picnic bench outside.

Home from home.. beautiful cottage with stunning views in the best location in Harris !
Our second visit to seaside house and it really feels like a home from home. The stylish and cosy furnishings, beautiful Harris tweeds and local artworks, the surrounding garden and stunning views both left and right make it a pretty special place to be

Great location, very comfortable house
The location is stunning, Luskentyre beach is incredible and the scenery on the whole island is jaw droppingly gorgeous. The house is comfortable and well equipped and in a great position for exploring all of Harris. We had a wonderful week despite most things being closed in between lockdowns, there was plenty of wildlife to spot and even the teenagers lifted their heads from their phones to admire the views! Sam's Seafood Shack was a bonus. Jo is very responsive and helpful. We were a party of three teenagers, two adults and two dogs and the house was plenty big enough.

A cosy Croft house, set beside a beach which will break your heart with its beauty
The light dances on Luskentyre beach, as the daily theatre of the tides graces one of the finest beaches in the world. Acres of white sands and turquoise seas are on your doorstep, with this lovely converted Croft house, with plenty of room for a large family unit but cosy enough for a couple. Dog-friendly, too. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

Wonderful stay!
What a lovely place to spend some time! The Seaside House was well-equipped with everything we could have needed. There were only four of us but the house didn’t feel too big- but we could have easily brought a bigger group with plenty enough room. I can see this being a lovely retreat for a couple as well as the perfect holiday home for a bigger family as well. Beach within walking distance and good placement for exploring more of Harris to the south and Lewis to the north. Highly recommend!

Charming Hebridean Cottage on Luskentyre's Doorstep
You'd have a challenge to find an equally charming Hebridean cottage which is a ten minute walk to Luskentyre, one of the best beaches in the UK, if not the world. If you are unfamiliar with Harris, the location of Seaside House is as good as you get. As you start the drive off the ferry, you'll bridge a hill and the view will take your breath away. In front of you is Luskentyre, and the ever shifting colours of yellows, blues, greens and browns as the sea meets peat and sand. Whether you are heading back to Seaside House after visiting the Harris Distillery (a must in my opinion) or body boarding with the children, you'll find a cosy, welcoming holiday home.
