“Fantastic house!”

It's been a pleasure to stay at Elizabeth's house. It's bright, large and comfy. The hosts were welcoming and easy to contact. The area is very quiet so you get a good rest. The beach and town centre are just a few minutes walking distance away. We'd definitely stay there again if we get a chance.

Excellent accommodation in Port Ellen!
Really lovely house - very nicely decorated, super comfortable beds, well appointed kitchen, brilliant shower and a nice outdoor space too! All you need!
Good situation - walking distance from the ferry port, bars and restaurants in Port Ellen. Also really handy for the south distilleries!
Will definitely return - hopefully very soon!!
Thanks!
