Seaside is used for several months of the year by ourselves and family, comments are those from non-family holiday lets.

‘Our visit to Seaside was incredible!   It was the first time we had been to Skye and we have loved it!   The cottage is in a beautiful location and we even spotted a few seals in the sea.   Thank you for the great holiday location – we will hopefully be back again soon.’

January 2014   T & G
‘We have so enjoyed a relaxing week with this lovely house as our base.   It really didn’t matter what the weather did we were happy to sit here and watch it, with otters and herons performing for us tourists.   Skye is familiar to us as family live here but this time this accommodation has given extra pleasure.’

December 2013   K & C, South Lanarkshire
‘Lovely cottage and superb views (sighted the otters several times!).’

October 2013   J & J, Shropshire
‘What can we say about the location that looking out of the windows doesn’t tell you.   Best cottage we’ve stayed in on the I.O.S.   Otters were seen every day either a family group or a single male…looking out to the right to see him in the rocks or swimming past…also seals, herons, etc. … Sadly we’re off now…But will be back.’

October 2013   M & A, Edinburgh
‘What a wonderful place to be!   Thanks for a super relaxing week with lots of fantastic walks.’

September 2013   M & S, West Yorkshire

‘Thank you for sharing your wonderful house – the location is simply magical.   Skye is so lovely - in all weathers but we have not seen a lovelier view than Broadford Bay!’

September 2013   J & M, Germany
‘What a discovery – the most magnificent sunrise vistas, a minimum of ten rainbows and all of the well stocked comforts we could wish to have.   Thank you so much.’

August 2013   R & G, Cornwall
‘The drive down from the airport was breath taking enough but our arrival at Seaside Cottage exceeded our expectations.   It was a beautiful blue sky day and we stood mouths open for a while – WOW!   The cottage inside is equally stunning and so comfortable.   The best of everything provided. ….. We have seen the otters swimming in the area left and right of the house twice.’

July 2013   R & E, London
‘We had a great stay & perfect location and a really lovely house.   Thank you also for being so helpful.   We will definitely recommend Seaside to friends – and Skye too of course.’

July 2013   D & S, Co. Durham
‘A lovely week in a really beautiful location.   The house couldn’t be better – everything thought of and beautifully designed.   First saw the otter within 30 minutes of arriving and a pair playing on the rocks right in front of the house on several days.   Our first trip to Skye and hopefully not our last, such a special place.’

July 2013   Z B, South Yorkshire
‘Thank you so much for an amazing week in Skye – we enjoyed every minute staying at your beautiful house with stunning scenery and views. ….. and of course our daily otter spotting from the kitchen window, we wish we could stay all summer, thanks!!’

June 2013   V & C, South Yorkshire
‘What a wonderful location,   Very interesting watching the oyster catchers and herring gulls – saw one with three chicks – but no otter! …..We will be back again.’
 
May 2013   P & C, Staffordshire
‘Thank you for another wonderful week.   Sorry we still can’t think of any improvements everything is simply perfect. ….. Seagulls dive bombing the otters on the rocks was the highlight of the week, you just don’t get that in our suburban garden.’

May 2013   J & R, South Yorkshire
‘Absolutely stunning!   The house is fantastic, really comfortable beds, beautifully appointed rooms, wish we could stay. ….. The otter was a welcome visitor, so exciting!   We shall return.   Thanks Jean and John Booth, you truly have a lovely home.’

March 2013   K & A, Nottinghamshire
‘Stunning property.   3rd trip to Skye.   Outstanding location.’

February 2013   L & A Aberdeenshire
‘We were up in Skye for our son’s wedding, where family & friends came to join us.   We had a very special time staying here was the icing on the cake, we have enjoyed the stunning changes that nature brings enjoyed watching the otters swim and play on the rocks (wish we had brought our binoculars).   We would loved to stay longer and so this will give us an excuse to return another time.’

December 2012   E & R, Fife
‘A beautifully presented property with every possible eventuality covered within the house.   Our kids were devastated at leaving as they just loved their 2holiday house2, we even spotted the otter on the rocks.   Staying in such a lovely house made up for the rainy windy weather, it just didn’t matter!   Many thanks.’

October 2012   A & J, London
‘We had a great week, including swimming in the bay with a couple of seals!   The house is very cosy, well equipped, the dining table is perfect for card games! We even bought lottery tickets to provide the ‘means’ mentioned in previous note, but not this time!   A lovely week in a fantastic place.   The view from the toilet window is particularly wonderful!

September 2012   P & A
‘We are so very sad…we have to leave!   We have thought of staying here indefinitely if only we had the opportunity (and means).   The location is superb, the views are breath taking, the house is top notch, the feeling of hospitality is warming.   We will absolutely return in the future as this has been an unforgettable experience.   Skye is astonishing, Old Man of Storr, Portree, walks around Broadford.   Many, many, many thanks for this great experience.’

September 2012   JG, Australia
‘What a lovely house and situation.   My sister made a wise choice.   And it’s been  a great week on Skye memories to take back …..’

September 2012   L & A, Tyne & Wear
‘We had a great week despite the horrendous weather…..The house is simply beautiful, a superb location and furnished to the highest quality with everything you could need.   Even on the worst weather days it is a pleasure to be here.   There was much wildlife in evidence during our stay with daily visits, amongst others, from a pair of herons and a pair of curlews which seem to have adopted the area in front of the house as their feeding station of preference.   We were also very fortunate to get a glimpse of a single otter slowly swimming by at high tide on Wednesday…..we very much enjoyed it and it is a property to treasure.’

August 2012   H & J, Glasgow
‘Thank you for a lovely week in your stunning cottage.   Despite the changeable weather we have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.   The beds in particular are so comfortable.    Favourite place in the morning was the kitchen just looking out at the sea. ….. You have thought of everything.’

July 2012   P & S, Devon
‘…..we could not have wished for a nicer cottage than Seaside for our holiday.   Everyone from 1 to 65 had a great time – kayaking, walking, swimming or just watching the waves from the (considerable) comfort of our living room.   With the high tide just feet away it felt like being in a boat – but without the wind!   There are lots of extra touches and you make great efforts to make visitors feel welcome and at home.   Although I have let cottages for 35 years I certainly felt I could learn from you.’

June 2012   G & P, Edinburgh
‘We have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!   Your house is lovely & we couldn’t have asked for anymore!   The views are amazing & we were lucky enough to get a sneek peek of the otters!!    Definitely return in the future!’

May 2012   V & M, Cheshire
‘Many thanks for the great accommodation in an idyllic setting.   We very much enjoyed going to Elgol, vising the Cuillin mountains via boat.   This was our first time to Skye and we will be returning again!’

May 2012   L S, Derbyshire
‘We have returned today from a fabulous week on Skye, made all the more enjoyable by the fantastic accommodation on offer at Seaside.   We were very interested to read about the renovation of the cottage and think the finished product was well worth all the time and effort you must have put in.   The property and location were stunning so many thanks for letting us share it.   Our only regret is that we had to leave!’

May 2012   L & T, Derbyshire
‘Our first visit to Skye and it was simply stunning!   Thank you for great accommodation in Seaside. ….. We hope to return!’

April 2012   J & G, Glasgow
‘The house is absolutely beautiful – one of the nicest we’ve been to (and there’s been a lot!).   The views from the windows are simply hypnotising, and I personally found the rock pools fun to snoop about.   The surrounding areas were all delightful to wander about – especially with the Cuillins to look at!
 
September 2011   J & S, Moray
'.... we had such a fantastic time. The house is stunning and the position - well - it was perfect. In fact I think it's the most perfect place we have ever stayed (and we've been all over Scotland, England and Wales). In fact we didn't want to leave (normally I'm quite happy to go home after a week but I was very down in the dumps leaving Seaside!!).....we definitely hope to come back'
