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.

Highly Recommended
A lovely place to stay with super views. Well equipped, very comfortable beds and nice furniture. Very hospitable and friendly hosts, couldn’t have been more welcoming and helpful. Even took us shopping when our vehicle broke down, we will definitely return and cannot recommend it highly enough.

No what we were led to expect
The description states “it is a recently refurbished detached property…”. The pictures show a detached bungalow with velux windows in the roof. The apartment is actually the first floor of the building, accessed through the owners home. It is self catering but not self contained. There is no separate lounge, just a sofa, bookended by armchairs, in a line along the wall at the foot of the bed. The only other seating was a two seater sofa and folding dining chairs in the kitchen. The owners were friendly and welcoming, the apartment clean and well equipped. The location is good, near the end of Aith Voe (the smaller Aith Voe on the east coast). Unfortunately, the best views were from the velux windows, fine for me at 6’2” but not for my wife at 5’0”. There was an outside table and chairs in the corner of the garden/parking area, a good view down the Voe. A good base to explore the local area.

Peaceful Setting and Lovely Hosts
We were welcomed by Tommy who provided all the information we needed without being intrusive. Margaret had left us a box of home made shortbread as a welcome present. Margaret even provided her own slow cooker for us to use to make a casserole in the morning to eat when we got back. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable with all mod cons. We enjoyed the setting beside the loch and we regularly saw seals and waders. Sadly the tide was never quite right while we were there for the otters. Margaret and Tommy invited us down for a drink on our last evening which we really enjoyed. Tommy phrased the invitation in such a way that it would have been easy to decline if we had been too busy. Lovely hosts!

Excellent!
A warm, friendly welcome. We couldn’t have had it better. Tamara is well-equipped, warm and absolutely clean. Excellent info booklets on things to do. Good place also for a morning run without much traffic around. Situated only 15min by car from Lerwick where there is Tesco for self-catering.

Great position, great hosts, loved the appartment
Having recently spent two weeks at Tamara appartment we would definitely recommend it to others. A warm and friendly welcome from the owners, Margaret and Tommy who were very hospitable and happy to help or offer advice if needed. The appartment was comfortable, warm and clean and very well equipped. It had lovely views of Aithvoe and as birdwatchers, it was a real treat to hear and see curlews and 'drumming' snipe all around the property. In fact we enjoyed our holiday so much that we have booked again for next year!!

About the neighbourhood
Tamara is situated in the centre of the wider Cunningsburgh area, off a side road off the loop road which runs around the village.The location is close to the edge of Aith Voe where seals can often be seen, which means fabulous views over the voe and south to the marina are enjoyed. Cunningsburgh has a local primary school, a well-used community hall and a marina (which can be seen from the house). Further amenities are available at Sandwick about four miles to the south and Lerwick is also within easy reach.
