“Cosy, welcoming, everything you need and more! ”
Reviewed 14 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Spacious modern family home with everything you need for a great stay. Tons of books, PS3 games, DVDs and board games / jigsaws for younger kids. Kitchen is fully equipped even with USB sockets to charge phones / iPods!

Beds comfy with electric blankets, lots of towels and extra sheets if needed.

Nice location - approx 10 minute walk from Centre of town.

The photographs don't show this house off as it is. It's a lot bigger in real life!

Thank you to David, the owner who kept in touch beforehand and offered his contact details should we need to call him when there (which we didn't).

“A welcome return to this lovely house”
Reviewed 3 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

It has been a little while since I stayed at Craigie View but once again I was not disappointed on this return visit. This is a lovely house with everything you need for your stay. The location of the property is ideal for day visits in the area and to walk into Aviemore itself. I hope I am able to visit Craigie View again in the not too distant future.

“I love this place”
Reviewed 14 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Another awesome week in this lovely place. Perfectly situated for a relaxing holiday within a seven minute walk of the centre of Aviemore. So you can choose to chill out in the house, which is in a great wee cul de sac, or walk down the lane past the steam train shed straight into the Main Street of the busy town of Aviemore.

Chilling out is easy, there are DVDs, a Play Station, loads of books and board games to keep you occupied. If that doesn't suit you, how about a nice glass of wine on the patio.... Looking up to the hills of the Cairn Gorms and listening to the steam train trundling past....

I would sell my house and move in without hesitation, home from home...

“once again I've had THE most relaxing time I could have wished for at craigie view”
Reviewed 16 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

David made this the easiest break away we could have wished for. This lovely house is home from home with every amenity you could wish for but with the wonderful addition of the most stunning views of the Cairngorms. The peacefulness as well as the comfort of the beds adds to the most incredible sleeping and inevitable long lies. Easy walks to the village for morning coffee are delightful in the company of siskins, coaltits and red squirrels. Go have a wonderful break you will only want to repeat.

“Lovely, well appointed spacious holiday home”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We would thoroughly recommend this property. We had a lovely time away with our two young children, one set of grandparents and our dog. The accommodation was spacious, clean and the selection of DVDs and Playstation Games was brilliant! Parking is ideal and the back garden is great for the kids and the dog as fully enclosed. The walk into Aviemore is a leisurely ten minutes.
