Beautiful home and grounds. The views we're great,. Plus a nice place to base while exploring Islay and the whiskey capital of Scotland.
Holiday home with a wow factor!
Cannot recommend this home highly enough. A really welcoming home from home. Comfortable, cosy, spotless and ideally placed for exploring Argyll and the Kintyre peninsula. Ideal for a large family get together or two families holidaying together. Contemporary Scottish, tasteful interiors and great space for relaxing. Perfect luxury hideaway, yet close to the village and local beach. Just a short drive to Campbeltown. Photos only give a hint of the actual standard and situation of the house. Really breathtaking.
A luxurious house in the most stunning setting
When we book a house for a holiday our minimum requirement is that it is at least as spacious, well furnished, clean and comfortable as our own home and Achnaha most definitely did not disappoint. In fact, with the large gardens, stunning views and proximity to the beautiful beaches, it is leagues ahead of our own home. Many houses we've rented over the years have at least one failing; whether it's room size, lack of utensils in the kitchen, too small a TV, lack of cushions/pillows (we can be quite picky so this list has been shortened). However, Achnaha was a home from home full of the comforts, amenities, utensils (we used both the cheese grater and the pizza slicer - often overlooked by other property owners) and luxury touches every holiday deserves. There was ample storage, the layout is perfect if you're sharing with friends or family as privacy can still be found when the house is full, the house was warm and spotless, the gardens (while large) were well maintained and great for the children to explore and the views are incredible. There's plenty to see and do in the surrounding area but, equally, it's a perfectly relaxing place to enjoy your holiday if you don't want to walk along the beach, go island hopping, take in a Whisky tour or shop in one of the local towns/villages. The more I reflect on it, the sooner we're likely to go back for another visit...
Perfect family get away, beautiful house/views
On arrival the house sits in a stunning location with views all around. It is beautifully decorated throughout in a modern and stylish way. Immaculately kept warm, cosy and welcoming. We were there with another family and the layout was perfect. All the children were able to share in a large bedroom featuring two singles and a set of bunk beds which they were delighted with. Our friends had the beautiful master bedroom and we were down stairs in what felt like our own private suite. Beautiful double bedroom, lounge area with French doors and views for miles and a family sized bathroom. There was also another large bedroom off the main lounge with en suite which we didn’t use. The house is spacious throughout and surrounded by lots of outside space to explore with the children. A short drive 10/15min and you are on the most beautiful beaches. We had such a fantastic stay with our friends and children and would definitely book again.
A WOW property in a breathtaking idyllic location!
This is the most peaceful location I’ve ever visited. The air is so clean, the sky is so clear...so many stars to gaze at and wish upon! I left feeling relaxed, invigorated and have fallen back in love with nature. The house is heavenly and immaculately furnished. A true luxury rental with such thoughtful touches. You can feel the love that has been poured in to it by the owners. The grounds are stunning with breathtaking views. We enjoyed so many adventures up through the woods into the fields, in and around the lake not to mention the idyllic beach with no-one else on it! Wow what a property and location! Highly recommended!!!
