“Great peaceful place”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Stayed 3 nights. Beautiful 2 bedroom apartment in excellent condition with great view and all the holiday amenities one could ever need. Big Tesco only a couple of hundred meters behind the apartment - you just need to find the little steep path from Glenshellach Tce otherwise a slightly longer walk around the main road.

So much enjoyed just looking out the window and watching the ferries coming and going all day. Easy to walk to all sights.

Whole family felt refreshed after staying and wish we could stay longer.

“Fantastic holiday flat!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed four nights in the Little Bay Apartment and had a wonderful time. Everything was clean and really nice and all needs provided for. The view is absolutely stunning and the location just perfect for walking the 5 minutes to the main harbour front. Lots of parking around the corner too.
Nothing to complain about. I would recommend this to anyone!

“Fantastic views with beautiful sunsets”

On arriving at the location we were a little perturbed by the chipped blue front door to the entrance. We soon realised it was just the entrance door to the tenament building in which the apartment was situated. After climbing four small flights of stairs we entered to the wow factor! We found the apartment very spacious and fitted to a very hight standard and a kitchen that provided everything we would need to host a dinner party. We were staying for three nights and were two couples, one of which didnt mind sleeping in the room with single beds (pushed together) and sharing the wardrobe in the main bedroom. We think the bedrooms are more adapted for 2 adults and 2 children but the rest of the apartment made up for that very small inconvenience. The views overlooking Oban harbour and bay area were amazing and the sunsets stunning. The large window in the lounge became our tv screen as we watched the ferries and various fishing vessels coming and going. Everything is just a few minutes walk away and there are plenty of lovely restaurants to choose from. The owners Jane and Kevin McCusker were most helpful with any questions we had and prompt to answer. We loved Oban and going over to Mull and Iona, and all this experience was helped by the lovely sunny weather. It might have been very different in the rain!

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Littlebay Apartment, we understand your comments regarding the buildings front door, this is due to be painted along with the common stair as part of routine pre-planned maintenance as agreed by the residents association and should be complete in the next month or so.

“Fantastic Apartment!”
Reviewed 17 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We had a great weekend in Oban staying at the Little Bay Apartment. It's location is excellent being situated in the town centre with stunning views looking directly out over Oban Bay and all of the local shops, pubs and restaurants and other amenities are very close by (5mins walk). The closest parking to the flat is pay and display during the day but the end of the controlled parking area is only 50 yards away from the front door so free parking is readily available which allowed us to park even on the weekend without any problem. This flat is modern, spacious and furnished to a very high standard and was spotlessly clean. It was quiet with no noticeable noise from other stair occupants which only enhanced our experience. The flat was warm and comfortable throughout our stay and included all of the facilities you would have at home. The experience of booking and communicating with the owner was also straight forward and we were made to feel very welcome. We will definitely come back again and we would recommend this flat if you are looking to stay in this area. 10/10.
