On our arrival we were greeted by Gillian who welcomed us and did a quick rundown on the apartment.
The apartment was very clean, well kept and equipped with just about everything you could possibly need to live there. With TV, radio, wi-fi, comfortable sofas and a collection of books there would have been no problem if the weather has kept us in.
The bedrooms were quite spacious with sufficient storage space and comfortable beds. The bathrooms were also a good size, clean and tidy.
A nice thoughtful touch was the day bag with maps of the islands, a folder with still more maps as well as brochures, books and leaflets. Also in the bag were flasks and some small lunch boxes.
We enjoyed our stay on the Shetland islands and all the more so knowing we would return to a warm, comfortable apartment each evening.
Definitely the best self catering we have ever been in.
Would I be happy to go back?
Would I recommend to friends and family?
Again yes and without hesitation.
The house was excellent, it had plenty of space, easy parking and it was just a few minutes away from Lerwick. Shetland has so much to see and it is very beautiful, well worth a visit.
Located on the outskirts of Lerwick with milk tea coffee sugar and a pack of cookies and a lovely wee extra touch of three craft beer all the utensils you need for a lovely stay absolutely wonderful
I booked this for my family who were up to see us , they loved the house and the amount of room they had, mums getting old and doesn't move as freely as she used too so the shower room and bedroom down stairs worked really well for them, they really enjoyed the stay.
We stayed in the Grey Gos flat at The Decca property hosted by Self Catering Shetland and the accommodations could not have been nicer. The kitchen has enough room to seat six people around the table and there are plenty of pots, pans, and utensils for cooking up whatever you wish. The utility room includes a washer and a dryer, we used them several times and can report that both work very well.
There are three bedrooms, 1 double and 2 twins, all comfortable beds and plenty of linens. There is one bathroom with a shower upstairs, then a full bath downstairs with a tub. Even better, the tub is "no nonsense", with simple hot and cold taps so you don't need an engineering degree just to have a hot soak!
The living room is also well outfitted, with two sofas and a reading chair. The tellie has a good selection of channels, although we didn't watch it much while we were there. The internet connection via wifi is strong enough to support streaming video if desired.
The location is slightly outside Lerwick, so the area is very quiet just about all the time, yet convenient for going into town to pick up groceries or have a meal out. The property has a small but perfectly adequate parking lot just in front; you may need to work on your three point turns to get through the gate just right, but otherwise it's handy to have parking almost at your front door.
