“Excellent all round”
Reviewed 20 October 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Fantastic location, and a very comfortable self catering apartment, well kitted out, and tastefully decorated and Danni and Nigel couldn't be more helpful with their extensive knowledge of the Islands , things to do and place to go.

“Excellent accommodation on beautiful islands”
Reviewed 11 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Nigel and Danni were there to greet us and give us lots of valuable information about the islands. The accommodation was first class. Comfortable bedrooms and lounge and very well equipped kitchen. Although the accommodation was in Old Town where it was quiet and peaceful, it was just a 15 minute walk to Hugh Town where there were more facilities. We will definitely return and wouldn't hesitate to book the same accommodation. We have already recommended to friends.

“Spacious self-catering accommodation on tranquil St Marys.”
Reviewed 10 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Well appointed, spacious and well laid-out ground floor apartment. Warm welcome from Danni and Nigel, who are especially knowledgeable on the bird life of the Isles of Scilly (and there is a nature reserve with hides just metres away). Old Town is quiet, apart from the occasional light aircraft from the airport, with a good pub, local shop and cafe. We enjoyed a meal in the pub, followed by a showing of a film of a Michael Morporgo story, set in and filmed in the IoS, which made for a nice evening. The apartment is also just off the coastal path and there are great walks around and across the island. We can recommend Pelistry Bay for swimming and Juliet's Garden for a seafood platter lunch. This was our first visit to the IoS, made all the more enjoyable by having such a lovely base.

“So relaxing”
Reviewed 9 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Our first stay upon the islands, and we were extremely lucky to have chose this wonderful flat to stay in. Full of very amenity you could wish for, comfortable beds for relaxing at the ned of our island explorations. Superbly located, easy access to Hugh Town and beyond. The welcome pack was beautiful and very welcoming. Hope to return we have been bitten by the magic of the islands. Thank you Danni and Nigel, hope to meet you next time Danni. The bonus were some splendid birds.

“Excellent property - convenient, comfortable, well equipped”
Reviewed 9 October 2016 for a stay in July 2016

It was great to have the property to ourselves but with the owners on hand if needed - very reassuring. The property was everything that we wanted and the location was perfect.
