“Brilliant Stay...”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Stayed here for a week and couldn't have been happier. The flat is REALLY spacious with dining room, big sitting room and two big bedrooms. One brilliant thing was the kitchen is fully stocked with implements and utensils making cooking easy.

The views are incredible, the Stein Inn was brilliant for a few quiet drinks (was the off-season!) and the surrounding area perfect for walks and drives.

We loved it so much we've booked already for next year!

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The Captain's House is situated in the village of Stein on the Isle of Skye. Stein is a very popular tourist destination reached by a 4 mile journey along a single track road. Due to its popularity it can get crowded and parking can be at a premium.

The house itself is very comfortable and well appointed. Two comfortable bedrooms, two bathrooms, the upper floor one has a bath which has great views over the loch. There is also a large sitting room, kitchen diner and a separate dining room.

The house is well situated to explore the northern part of the island.

A welcome review from even more welcome guests who left the property in an extremely clean and tidy condition, requiring little more than a change of linen.

I am very pleased with my booking this time. The flat is clean and tidy, very well equipped. The location is quite nice as well, just next to the Stein INN, the oldest bar on the island, so your meals are guaranteed. The boat trip to see dolphins and seals just starts in front of the flat, and the skyeskyns are within 5 mins walking distance.

Liked best: everything
Liked least: If i have to pick one thing, that would be the bedroom upstairs are very hot during our stay. An additional fan would be great.
