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.

Lovely cosy cottage
Thoroughly enjoyed our visit! Crovie is an amazing place and this house served as a great base to explore the area. Even when the weather wasn't amazing we were nice and cosy by the fire in the cottage! We had everything we needed.

Loved number 13 Crovie. The sound of the sea is a constant which we loved and helping the RSCPA transport a baby seal up the hill totally made Boxing Day for my daughter. We found out that 5 of our friends have grandparents who lived in Crovie, and several enjoyed their visit to us. Cosy nights in before the fire, great times with friends and family round and about, and experienced the sea both calm and wild. Great memories of Christmas 2017 - thank you.

Nice little house in a fantastic location
This is an exceptional location: Right next to the sea (even saw dolphins once), impressive views, nice locations nearby (e.g., the Pennan Inn well known from the movie "Local Hero" with really good food is 10 mins by car). House #13 offers all amenities needed, we found out more and more little secrets during our stay. We bought wood and peat from a local neighbor and used the fireplace a lot. Things to improve: Not many. It should be mentioned in the description that underfloor heating is in the kitchen area only. And maybe a bigger TV screen would be nice. Wireless works strong and stable, but in the kitchen area it's quite weak. We exchanged some messages with Hamish (the owner) during our stay, and enjoyed this communication (check-in, check-out, some questions throughout our stay). Thanks!

Ein Stück vom Himmel
Noch nie haben wir so schnell entspannt und entschleunigt wie in diesem" lovley " Cottage. Da wir auch noch Glück mit dem Wetter hatten war unser Glück perfekt. Nachdem wir alle Feinheiten im Haus erkundet und gefunden hatten, war es sehr komfortabel und es fehlte an nichts. Die Menschen rundherum waren alle sehr aufgeschlossen und freundlich, sogar frischen Fisch haben wir von einer Angeltour bekommen. Man kann jedem nur die Ruhe und den Frieden empfehlen den man an diesem wunderbaren Fleckchen Erde empfindet. Danke Hamish für die unkomplizierte Abwicklung und nette Kommunikation. Wir kommen wieder!!!!! Karin und Harry

Excellent break in a cosy cottage
Had a great time relaxing and playing board games. My daughter loved combing the beach and walking to the nearby town for dinner. Great location, lots to see and do in the area and loved the property. Well equipped, warm and cosy cottage. Great communication with the owner, will definitely be back!

Heaven on Earth
I felt as if I was staying in my sister's house or very dear aunt--someone I loved a great deal--The cottage was such a "home" with everything you could possibly want or need--very caringly prepared for us in a loving way ready for our arrival- The cottage was right on the sea with just the sound of seagulls above the waves and an ever changing panorama of the sky and tides various sea birds and the occasional seal--Many thanks to the wonderful owner for sharing this piece of heaven with those of us lucky enough to stay here--Thank you most sincerely from me and also my family--We thank you!!!

Quaint cottage
Great setting.lovely village.so quiet,all you hear is the sea beating on the rocks.house is cosy and we learnt how to light a coal / log fire. Always cosy in the kitchen with the underfloor heating on, whilst opening the door and looking out to sea just yards away. Would return here again and again for compete chill out time.
