“A gem of a find - couldn't be better”
Reviewed 4 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I went seeking peace, quiet, tranquility. Got that and more. Wonderful location. Amazing welcome from Rhoda. Kabuis Chalet is beautiful, warm, and well equipped - everything you could want and more. Magical from the meet you, welcoming fruit, salmon, cake onwards
Fascinating to know you're staying in a place whose owners have such long and deep connection to this land - read the articles thoughtfully provided.
On another front it's a great location - central to much yet walks, sea/skyscrapes on the doorstep

“A fantastic Holiday Experience”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

person found this review helpful

On arrival at our holiday destination we were warmly greeted by Rhoda and Neil with a cup of tea, some delicious home baking and a nice chat about the surrounding area. We immediately felt at home . On top of it all we got fresh and smoked salmon, fruit, flowers and another banana loaf for us to eat. The chalet has all the comfort you need and we found it very comfortable and cosy.
Cycling around the island is a wonderful experience as there is hardly any traffic and most car drivers are considerate of cyclists.
The Kabuis is also a good base to explore the island ,
Unfortunately at the end of the week my husband did something to his back and immediately Rhoda and Neil provided all the medication needed, which was so helpful.
After a day's cycling, recommended by Rhoda we sometimes ordered delicious food from 40 North as well as their tasty homemade bread.
All by all, also thanks to Rhoda and Neil we had a great time in Lewis at the Kabuis and hope to be back next year.

“A very warm and welcoming home from home”
Reviewed 5 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

A very warm welcome greeted my wife and I as we arrived at the chalet. Rhoda and Neil went out of their way to make us feel truly welcome. Upon arrival there were fresh flowers, fruit and wonderful Salmon and smoked Salmon in the fridge. I had last visited the Isle of Lewis in 1974 and had longed to go back to see the beaches of Dalbeg and Dalmore. We could not have picked a better place to stay. The Chalet is very well appointed, it was warm and comfortable and everything that we needed from holiday accomodation. It is pet friendly too and our two dogs had a great time. The location at South Shawbost is ideally placed and within easy reach of all of the fantastic beaches and places of interest on the Island. We highly recommend this chalet and we will definitely be back next year. Mark & Lorraine Wright
