Service was great, the home was beautiful but could do with more comfortable furniture. Some beds were so bad we had to put mattresses on the floor, sofas also uncomfortable. Outside furniture was lovely. The water from the well was incredibly smelly so reluctant to use it, would advise getting this fixed. Private beach was a delight and the babies loved it. Location was perfect as within walking distance from singing sands beach, with great walks. Tobermory was a 15 minute drive away which was perfect. We had a wonderful time and would recommend it. No sun umbrellas for outdoors which made sitting outside during the day difficult with babies, kayaks/canoes would be a wonderful addition. Cottage was very well equipped apart from umbrella, had everything to cook properly, including a lovely barbecue. Would only not recommend this for young families due to the upstairs being unusable for people with small children as they can fall through the slats.

From beginning to end, this was a very positive rental experience. I received very courteous and helpful service for my many questions; whenever I called the office about details, I always received a prompt reply.
The cottage met and surpassed our expectations. It was clean, nicely decorated and comfortably inviting. Lovely art of the area adorned the walls. A well equipped kitchen made meals easy, as did the new gas barbeque!
We enjoyed the privacy of the location, at the 'end of the road', as well as the mostly sandy beach and the gorgeous sunsets.
It was also great to be just 10 minutes from Tobermory and the activities available there.
It was truly a memorable experience, that I would do again.
"A gorgeous home away from home in a perfect location."

This lovely cottage is large and spacious with all the amenities a family would need. It is located just steps from a beautiful sand and rock beach, excellent for children. Close as well to Tobermorey and other sites.
