“Secluded piece of Heaven”
Reviewed 16 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Geocrab is a tiny hamlet, down the very winding single track Golden road which in itself is an amazing introduction to the scenery and wildlife of South Harris. The house is situated close to a wonderful café and a short journey away from the other villages on the coastal road, which I explored on foot. The house is warm and comfortably laid out, with neutral clean furnishings and some lovely touches; the heather, local candles, selection of games, DVDs and CDs and all mod-cons. I especially enjoyed the lashings of hot water in the shower, to warm up after an autumnal outing on one of several nearby trail walks (denoted by brown tourist signs). A lovely area, half way between the main shops at Tarbert and Leverburgh. I enjoyed my 'pet' seal in the local bay and neighbouring sheep in the next field, providing perfect subject matter for holiday photographs. A truly lovely place, suitable for larger groups /families, even with a bedroom downstairs, great for an elder relative who doesn't want to climb the stairs. The bedrooms were modern and fresh, with open island views. I felt this was a real home from home (and a lovely touch that the owner left some wine for us!).

“A cosy family home set in stunning Hebridean scenery”
Reviewed 14 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We received a very warm welcome from Janice on arrival at Geocrab. The house was spacious, warm and cosy and had everything we needed for a relaxing holiday. Located on the scenic Golden Road, there was a spectacular view around every corner and it was a joy to explore the island by car, encountering very little traffic on the way! Although we were visiting out of season, there was plenty to enjoy, with long walks on the miles and miles of golden sandy beaches to the west, and into the magnificent Harris hills and even a visit to the new Distillery at Tarbert.

“Comfortable, spacious in picturesque location”
Reviewed 10 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

I booked this property at very short notice. Janice was very helpful in making the property available on the same day, and when my wife thought she was lost (it was dark when she arrived) Janice found her, let her in and gave me a quick call to say she had arrived safely. The property was very clean, comfortable and warm and we would recommend it to anyone looking to stay in Harris or Lewis for their holiday.
