Alan and Alison are great hosts. Alan picked us up in port ellen and together they showed us our home for the next days. They explained every detail of the house and gave us some nice tipps for our stay. The houst itself is overall very nice and furnished lovely. We felt very welcome and soon the house became a home to us. I would recommend anyone who wants to stay in Islay to check-in with Alan and Alison. Cheers from Germany PS: The fire detectors just worked perfectly ;)

This house was so warm and cozy. It was exactly what we wanted for our stay in Islay, and very close to the footpath to Laphroaig, Lagavulin and Ardbeg. Alison welcomed us at the house, and Alan graciously gave us a surprise, private tour of Laphroaig (our favorite whiskey!) which ended up being the highlight of our trip. Highly recommend this place! Alan and Alison are very communicative and friendly!

Everything from check in to the stay was very pleasant. The location is great as it's close to town and the three southern most distilleries. The place is also very spacious and clean.

Really great house in a fantastic location for exploring the Island. Less than a minutes walk to nearest pub and shop and very short drive to local distilleries. Check in and out really easy and house spotlessly clean. Thank you!
