First, it is important to make it clear what the house and is not. Just making sure future guests know what to expect.
Also, we run a Trip Advisor Cert of Excellence vacation rental property ourselves and the feedback we provide is grounded on how we run our own rental.
The house is a very large home outside of Inverness. It has 5 bedrooms that are pretty much the same and feel like hotel rooms. The living room is huge. There is a separate TV room and enormous kitchen.
This is a house that requires a car. This is not a home in town that is within walking distance to anything.
We chose this house as we are a large family that needs the space. We also wanted a base camp from which to drive all over the Highlands but come back to at night.
The house was perfect for our needs. Bella was easy to get hold of and quick to communicate with.
The description is accurate, but we don’t think it gives the house credit for its amazing location. Ditto for the pictures.
We found the house to be spotless. Sheets and bedding were crisp and pure white. Plenty of everything. The walls have been freshly painted.
Where the home falls short is the carpet and the bathrooms. The carpet is old and should have been replaced 10 years ago. The bathrooms have dim lightbulbs, have this cheap plastic tiles around the tub/shower, and the sinks use the cute, but archaic and not very useful separate faucets for hot and cold water. We understand that this may be consistent with the British heritage, but in the year 2018 guests expect simplicity and the ability to control the water temperature coming from the faucets.
Overall we would highly recommend this house. The location and the views from the house are priceless. A new carpet and birighter light bulbs will breath new life in this otherwise great house.
