Our first visit. And it certainly is a perfect retreat. It is so well equipped and clean. Bedrooms and bathrooms are immaculate. It met all our needs. We used Seaview as a base to explore the wonderful beaches on the island. Though we enjoyed being able to walk up and over to the beautiful Bosta beach, surrounded as it is by carpets of wild flowers.

The house corresponded exactly to the description and photos. Very well equipped and the perfect place to spend time to disconnect and relax. The remote location means that you need to drive a bit for visits - but that is the same for any other place on the island. And being far out in this beautiful setting was just amazing. Great walk over the hills (or a short drive) to the beach. We would come back any time.

Lovely place. Very remote so some planning needed for catering. Small shop 2 miles away selling milk and a few basics. One of the rooms is bunks so property really suitable for 6 adults and 2 children. Well equiped everything you could want for a good holiday.

We had an unforgettable week in this wonderful house. Two families with three children aged 11-17 shared the place, we all felt superbly comfortable. All the bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and extraordinary, the kitchen is absolutely well equipped, and every corner of the house is full of charm. And the scenery -- there are no words to describe it! Great Bernera is a perferct location for touring on Isle of Lewis and Harris. When we did not feel like driving we walked to Bosta Beach, absolutely beautiful! Thank you Anne for the lovely welcome! We would definitely like to be back!

This is a lovely luxurious house, with a well equipped kitchen and plenty of room for our party of three adults and two children. The location is secluded and the scenery is amazing. There is a great walk behind the house over to Bosta beach, and we were able to launch our sea kayaks from the local beach within 100m of the house. Stornoway is about 40 minutes away and has a number of good supermarkets. There is WiFi available so the children were happy, but mobile phone signals are intermittent. We were lucky enough to see a red deer stag, seals and an eagle during our stay, and would have been happy to stay another week if we could...highly recommended.

I’m not quite sure where to start here as there are so many great things I could say. Seaview House is a superb, modern, home surrounded by breath-taking scenery. We had a one week holiday as two families of four. The ‘children’ ranged in ages from 11 to 20 – there was plenty of room for all of us. Seaview House is wonderful both inside and out. There are luxurious furnishings, particularly in the bathrooms, and an extremely well-equipped kitchen. The decking was very welcome, especially as we were fortunate to have plenty of sunshine at Easter. The small beach down the road only takes a couple of minutes to walk to, and we were brave enough to have a very brief swim one afternoon. Bracing! Having never to been to Lewis and Harris previously we made sure we took several trips out to explore the area. The beaches are truly spectacular (Luskentyre, Uig Sands) and we had a lovely sunny day at Bosta Beach, which we walked to from Seaview House (great views on the way from the top). Again, Bosta Beach is beautiful and far away from the crowds. The booking process was all made nice and easy by Anne, and we were made to feel most welcome. Everyone agreed we had a fantastic holiday at Seaview House.

Thank you for your kind words. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at Seaview House and that you managed to experience many of the beautiful beaches and sights Lewis and Harris have to offer. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have the little beach so close by the house and so impressed that you managed a swim at this time of year! We hope that we may welcome you back in future years. Kind regards John & Anne
