“Beautiful home, perfect customer service, would definitely recommend.”
Reviewed 27 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

our party consisted of myself, my partner, our 16 & 9 yr olds plus our 7month baby and my parents. This home (I use the term "home" deliberately) was superb. The pictures do not do it justice and you are wow'd immediately. We were able to be together but not on top of one another and our lil one adored the open plan kitchen in his walker. The gardens front & rear were stunning, the amenities provided meant it was a home from home, I simply could not find fault in any way. Customer service, again superb, this lady actually amended her own plans just to accommodate our needs and was so kind and friendly from the beginning... any negatives... yes....we didn't stay longer!

So glad you enjoyed yourselves, it helped that the weather was fantastic. Your comments are very kind, we were happy to rearrange our own stay to help out, it just meant I had to do the housekeeping before I could leave and I'm pretty sure I was not up to the usual standard....

“Fantastic Property”

We stayed at Greenways for our Family Wedding, after a 6 hour drive we arrived to Flowers, champagne and a wedding card for me and my now husband, which was so perfect. The cottage was clean, all the facilities were brilliant, my whole extended family visited us over the weekend and everyone loved the cottage, from finding the cottage on the internet Janet was helpful with every requirement and questions, her mother showed us the property before we booked in November and we fell in love with the property straight away. Janet also returned our deposit within hours of receiving our bank details no delays. I would recomend this property to anyone who would like to take their family for a week away or even 4 days like us, We will definately be using the cottage in the future.

Liked best: The Open planned Kitchen we could all stay together in one room, but not on top of each other throughout the day.
Liked least: Up stairs shower temperature kept going hot and cold, may need to be serviced, but were 8 people having showers one after the other on the morning of the wedding.

“Beautiful Home, Brilliant Location!”
Reviewed 5 April 2013 for a stay in February 2013

My friends and I go salmon fishing every spring on the River Dee, we normally fish around the Banchory area and normally book into a hotel. This year however we all agreed that it would be much more relaxing to go self catering and not have to worry about dinner times and bar closing times in hotels. We were all so glad we made that choice!
Greenways is an absolute home from home, with all mod cons. It is perfectly sized for our needs, with a fantastic kitchen and lovely cosy living room with open fire. Also with ample parking for 4 large 4x4s. Greenways is also ideally located just 3 mins walk from Banchory town centre, so perfect for the Indian restaurant, chippy, bars and the bakery for morning rolls and rowies.
We all had a great time and thouroughly enjoyed our stay with great banter at our yearly catch up and we will definately want to return when we next go to the Dee, lets just hope the fishing is better next time as sadly there were no salmon caught.
Janet the landlady has been so helpful too, responding quickly to all emails and returning of the deposit. She also arranged the return of left items of clothing our party carelessly left behind.
Thanks again Janet, will be in touch again soon.
