“Brilliant - will definitely be back!”
Reviewed 21 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

A great location, a very comfortable and well equipped house, accommodating our large group with ease, and a warm welcome from host Nathan, this is a real find, and we will definitely be back.

“Wow wow wow!!!”
Reviewed 3 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Have just returned home from this amazing holiday house. On arrival we met with Nathan & he was fabulous. He showed us around the house & told us how to use stuff & where extra bedding, pillows & towels were should we require anything else. He lived in house behind here & said if anything else we needed just to give him a shout. He was so nice & easy to speak with & we knew nothing would be a hassle to him should we have asked for anything. Also met with Julie who was equally as nice & made us feel welcome

There were 10 of us staying in this house (4 adults & 6 kids) & honestly we were lost in it. There was so much space, the 2 living rooms was great - kids could play in 1 & adults in the other. Totally loved the open feeling to the kitchen/living room area. Big open windows with patio doors outside was absolute heaven. The kitchen was very well equipped with all the essentials plus loads more - cocktail glasses was the icing on the cake for us!!

There was a bbq hut at the bottom of the garden which we used for toasting marshmallows & enjoying a few drinks in. This too was well equipped with all the essential for outdoor living. The views from the house were outstanding looking out over the Moray Firth. I can honestly say I didn't want to leave here. We will definitely return here in the near future but hopefully next time for a bit longer.

I cannot understand how anyone can complain about this place, it's is absolutely gorgeous. A huge well done to Nathan & Julie for all their hard work in running this place.

Many thanks

“Firth Class Accomodation”
Reviewed 28 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

No idea whether the owners have "upped their game" or if the review earlier this month was unfair, but the trepidation we felt after reading it disappeared as soon as we arrived at the house to find a beautifully appointed and really comfy holiday home.

We went as part of an extended family for my parents' golden wedding and the house comfortably slept six adults and four teenagers (three double bedrooms - two with en suite and the third opposite a very nice bathroom), a room with bunk beds and a bed settee in the "spare" living room.

The main living space is an open-plan living and dining area with a modern (and well resourced) kitchen and affords lovely 180 degree views straight out onto the Moray Firth. A log fire and under-floor heating gave the place a very cosy feeling.

Outside is a patio with garden furniture, a large lawned garden and a summer house with a fire pit bbq. The owners didn't charge us any deposit for its use (guess we must have looked trustworthy lol?!) and we found ourselves sat in there on an evening with a roaring fire going.

All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pebble Beach and it was even better when we factored in the very reasonable price we paid to stay there. We would definitely come back and stay here again.

“Ab Fab!”

Fantastic house with everything we needed, and more. The location and views were breathtakingly beautiful. We woke up to stunning sunrises and went to bed with stunning sunsets every day. The garden and pebble beach itself were perfect for the kids and adults alike and the barbecue hut was the perfect setting for drinks and toasting marshmallows. The house is an ideal base for exploring the area and very spacious and well laid-out. Nathan was on hand to welcome us and both he and Julie made us feel very much at home. The only downside was that we had to leave again!

“disappointing and unclean”
Reviewed 28 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015
2
people found this review helpful

Very disappointed with the house, it states sleeps 10 but really only sleeps 6 adults max. 3 double beds 2 kids bunk beds and a small sofa bed which only fits 1 person on. Despite the views and the location everything else was disappointing. The house was unclean, and so were all the utensils. For example the BBQ hut which it advertises its self of having, we arrived and had to pay an unexpected deposit of £75 to use. Which to me is false advertising. When we went to use it there was only about 4 pieces of coal and couldn't cook any more than 6 burgers. Not only was it disappointing these factors already, when we went to use the facilities there was black/burnt left over food on the utensils and grill. Someone with food allergies like my self this completely repulse's me. That wasn't the start of it... under the sofa bed in the livingroom there was left over popcorn from the previous guests. Down the sides of the sofa's in general was dirty and dusty. The oven trays in the over still had left over food on them, there was only a small amount of squeezy liquid provided so we had to buy our own to clean someone elses left over food. No hand soap in the toilets and the drains in all the bathrooms flooded. So they provided 10 people 10 towels for 3 nights knowing the drains flood so we had to wash and dry the towels every day. More of a chore than a holiday. Lets get back to the bed situation.. 1 of the group slept on a couch and since no extra bedding or towels were about we used A SHEET... 1 sheet from a locked cupboard which did have a duvet in but we were told not to use, so we used 1 single sheet to provide our group member with some covers and Nathan the owners son who acted like a stroppy teenager about being in charge of the business for 1 weekend as his mum was over sea's decided that we had put him at a "personal loss" by using this as he would have to wash it and asked for an instant bank transfer of £10 to wash this sheet. Yes £10 could buy 3 decent sheets. So overall not satisfied with the house.

Management Response
2 Oct 2015
We are very disapointed by this review but accept that from time to time we may expect to experience difficult and disrespectful clients of this nature. These clients communicated no negative thoughts during their stay, so we can only surmise that this review is their reaction to being asked to contribute towards extra costs we incurred as a result of laundry, for the next guests, being removed from locked cupboards. We always provide full contact information and have someone nearby to deal with queries and additional requests. The sofa bed comes with a full bedding set, this was pointed out upon arrival. The bbq hut is not advertised. We offer this as an added extra upon arrival, there is no charge for its use but we do ask for a refundable £75 damage deposit. As this is a self catering property we do not supply coals for the bbq nor are we obliged to provide any consumables. We do provide some basic essentials (one fresh roll of toilet paper per bathroom, hand soap, logs, etc). We are particularly concerned with the negative comments regarding our beds. The sofa bed is a full double size with memory foam mattress and comfortably sleeps two adults. The bunk beds are purpose built full size adult single beds and every bed in the property are fitted with hotel quality bedding . My mother and I, as a team, work hard to maintain a high standard and try to ensure customer satisfaction in all of our properties. Nathan Fraser (Property Manager)
