Stayed at Cala Sona for a week and could not have been more pleased. All four ladies in my travel party were delighted by the charming home and town. The house and garden are lovely and provide the perfect homebase for a Nairn holiday. The host is top notch and cares about his guests having a fantastic stay. Highly recommend this property. Cheers!

A 5 minute walk to grocery store, specialty shops, returants, and a great pub! Home was outfitted with comfortable beds and a large eat-in kitchen with all the utensils needed to cook. You are a half block from a beautiful sandy beach and large grassy area for watching and playing sports. There is even a nice play space for kids with an ice cream stand. Enjoy Nairn’s harbor and river walk. All sooo close. Taxis are available for trips to nearby castles, forts, train station and tours. Fun memories were made. Enjoy!

A great house with everything you could need. Such a central location. A few minutes walk to beach, the main street, pubs and restaurants. The host Jim sent great information on places to visit and where to eat. I would recommend this house to anyone looking to explore the area and would definitely book again.

Great house that comfortably accommodated 6 adults and 2 children. So close to the beach and the town it made an ideal spot for our holiday. We loved the family kitchen and the kids loved the jacuzzi bath. The whole house was so comfortable that it felt like home and with the enormous sandy beach so close and beautiful scenery surrounding it let alone seeing dolphins it all made for a wonderful holiday.

Das Haus ist ein urgemütliches, typisches schottisches Cottage. Wir waren 3 Erwachsene und 3 Teenager und hatten ausreichend Platz. Es gibt 2 Badezimmer, eines im Erdgeschoss mit Toilette und Dusche und eines im ersten Stock mit Toilette und Whirlpool-Badewanne inkl. Dusche. Insgesamt hat das Haus 3 Stockwerke: im EG Wohnzimmer, Küche mit großem Esstisch und angrenzendem Waschraum mit Waschmaschine und Trockner, ein kleiner Abstellraum mit Staubsauger etc. und das Bad. Im ersten Stock sind 2 (Doppelbett)Schlafzimmer und ein Badezimmer. Im Dachgeschoss befindet sich ein Schlafzimmer mit 2 Einzelbetten und ein Schlafzimmer mit einem Einzelbett, außerdem gibt es in der "Galerie-Nische" noch einen Schreibtisch. Wir fanden das Haus sehr sauber vor und unser Gastgeber James war immer per WhatsApp erreichbar. Er ist selbst nicht vor Ort, hat uns aber bei Bedarf Ansprechpartner genannt (wir haben sie nicht gebraucht) und die Schlüsselübergabe war per Schlüsselsafe bestens geregelt. Auch tolle Ausflugs- und Restauranttipps haben wir von James erhalten. Wir haben uns während unseres Aufenthaltes rundum wohl und gut betreut gefühlt. Als einzigen kleinen Kritikpunkt kann ich nur die Anzahl und Größe der Töpfe anbringen, diese waren für uns sechs Personen etwas knapp bemessen. Eine große Auflaufform wäre auch schön gewesen, es waren nur ziemlich kleine vorhanden, die etwas knapp sind für sechs Personen. Ansonsten war die Küche sehr gut und großzügig mit Essgeschirr und Besteck ausgestattet. Auch grundlegende Kochzutaten wie Essig und Öl, Pfeffer und Salz etc. waren vorhanden. Es gab ausßerdem eine Kapsel-Kaffeemaschine (haben wir allerdings nicht benutzt, wir hatten unsere eigene dabei), einen Toaster und eine Mikrowelle. Wenn man seitlich am Haus vorbei durch die Gasse geht (vorbei an einem sehr guten Restaurant/Pub, Reservierung empfehlenswert) kommt man über die Straße und eine große Rasenfläche direkt zum wunderschönen Sandstrand.

This house was perfect for our golf group consisting of 4 golfers. 4 bedrooms and 2 baths were just what we we desired. House had all the amenities we needed, everything was well maintained and in excellent condition. Location is very central and easy walk to restaurants and pubs. A bonus is the owner, James, who provided lots of useful recommendations on places to eat and drink and things to see and do. He followed up and checked on us several times to insure all was well with our stay. Very much appreciated. I highly recommend this house to anyone planning a trip to the Nairn/Inverness area.

We had a nice stay over Christmas in Nairn. The house is large enough for family of four to lose each other and was very comfortable. The beds were extremely nice and comfortable. The position could not have been better, walking distance the local pub and only a little further to beach and harbour. It is also perfect if you want go further afield, Inverness is close by, the stunning mountains and whisky route are all nearby. Beautiful part of the world we loved and will definitely be back to explore some more.

todo correcto, salvo la falta de profesionalidad a la hora de recibirnos, para dar llaves. llamamos para decir que llegariamos tarde y nadie respondia al telefono.cuando llegamos no habia nadie que nos recibiera, llamamos y llamamos, nada, los vecinos amablesy preocupados por nuestra situacion. de casualidad encontramos las llaves, pues la habian dejado estrategicamente escondidas, una falta de delicadeza y de profesionalidad.por lo demas la cas muy bien
