Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Well equipped and comfortable
Well equipped and comfortable, the property is convieniently located just outside Lerwick. A great base for exploring. Thoughtful touches such as OS maps and thermos flasks provided for outings. We really enjoyed our stay.

Perfect place to stay if you are visiting Shetland
The cottage was warm and very comfortable, and well stocked. There was everything we needed.it was lovely and fresh and clean and Gillian and Steve were very helpful, what a lovely couple. I definately want to come back to Shetland sometime in the future. The only thing I would say is in the downstairs bedroom the mirror is too high up, when I sat on the chair all I could see was the top of my head😂

Most comfortable and homey place we stayed in over a long trip!
We stayed in both Skarf and Grey Gos, two of the houses in the Decca, over the course of our Shetland vacation. Both houses were clean, comfortable, convenient, and so thoughtfully arranged. There were six of us, two kids, two seniors, and two parents very much in need of a holiday. We all absolutely loved the houses. You will need a car, but then it is incredibly easy to get into town (actually you could do it on bike too) or anywhere at all on the islands. This was part of a long European holiday for us and it was hands down the nicest, most comfortable place we stayed in. We had some wet weather and it was very cozy to come back to the Decca to dry off and relax for a few hours in the afternoons, or to spend evenings playing games in the living room. Gillian and Steve were very friendly and welcoming, and there were so many little extra, unexpected touches, like a backpack with tupperware and water bottle and various things to take hiking, some nice local beer on the table, along with tea and coffee and cookies, there were stuffed toys on the kids' beds. It really felt as if every possible comfort had been anticipated and provided. I can't recommend the place highly enough. It really had all the comforts of home (but it was much cleaner than home!).

We loved everything about this accommodation
It was deceptively spacious, 6 of us stopped there, 4 adults and 2 children. All modern amenities, lovely and clean. Nothing was too much trouble. You will need a car to get about but it was a 5 minute drive to Lerwick centre. We are definitely going to come back to Shetland and this accommodation will be first on our list.

Ideal base for exploring Shetland.
The museums and shops of Lerwick were at most a mile away, but it felt like we were further into the countryside. The sheep in the surrounding fields may have had something to do with that. Quiet and peaceful. Grey Gös had everything we needed: plenty of space for our group (one couple + two singles) to socialize when we wanted to and to do our own thing when we didn’t, a well-equipped kitchen, laundry facilities. We would gladly stay here again.

Excellent accommodation
On our arrival we were greeted by Gillian who welcomed us and did a quick rundown on the apartment. The apartment was very clean, well kept and equipped with just about everything you could possibly need to live there. With TV, radio, wi-fi, comfortable sofas and a collection of books there would have been no problem if the weather has kept us in. The bedrooms were quite spacious with sufficient storage space and comfortable beds. The bathrooms were also a good size, clean and tidy. A nice thoughtful touch was the day bag with maps of the islands, a folder with still more maps as well as brochures, books and leaflets. Also in the bag were flasks and some small lunch boxes. We enjoyed our stay on the Shetland islands and all the more so knowing we would return to a warm, comfortable apartment each evening. Definitely the best self catering we have ever been in. Would I be happy to go back? Yes, very. Would I recommend to friends and family? Again yes and without hesitation.

Very easy to park, near Lerwick with plenty of space
The house was excellent, it had plenty of space, easy parking and it was just a few minutes away from Lerwick. Shetland has so much to see and it is very beautiful, well worth a visit.

Family stay
I booked this for my family who were up to see us , they loved the house and the amount of room they had, mums getting old and doesn't move as freely as she used too so the shower room and bedroom down stairs worked really well for them, they really enjoyed the stay.

Comfortable, convenient, and quiet, what more could you ask for?
We stayed in the Grey Gos flat at The Decca property hosted by Self Catering Shetland and the accommodations could not have been nicer. The kitchen has enough room to seat six people around the table and there are plenty of pots, pans, and utensils for cooking up whatever you wish. The utility room includes a washer and a dryer, we used them several times and can report that both work very well. There are three bedrooms, 1 double and 2 twins, all comfortable beds and plenty of linens. There is one bathroom with a shower upstairs, then a full bath downstairs with a tub. Even better, the tub is "no nonsense", with simple hot and cold taps so you don't need an engineering degree just to have a hot soak! The living room is also well outfitted, with two sofas and a reading chair. The tellie has a good selection of channels, although we didn't watch it much while we were there. The internet connection via wifi is strong enough to support streaming video if desired. The location is slightly outside Lerwick, so the area is very quiet just about all the time, yet convenient for going into town to pick up groceries or have a meal out. The property has a small but perfectly adequate parking lot just in front; you may need to work on your three point turns to get through the gate just right, but otherwise it's handy to have parking almost at your front door.
