Our first visit to Shetland and it was a great trip really helped by this brilliant apartment to return to each evening.
Great location and really well equipped with all you could need for your stay.
We've never stayed in such a perfectly conceived and executed holiday apt. The owners clearly have either traveled themselves or know many travelers, and they designed the apartment *for* travelers to Shetland. There is a separate small "mud room" or luggage room before entering the flat proper, perfect for those who are hiking or who have other equipment/luggage to store. The windows all have full blinds that ensure you can sleep during the longest days, yet tons of natural light with the blinds up. The apt has a full inventory and is stocked with everything you could need. The design and materials are modern and high-end, and everything was absolutely pristine--really immaculately clean. In fact, the online pictures don't do justice to the lovely quality of light in the flat, the sense of space in the flat, and thus the beauty of it. The bed was extremely comfortable, as were the seating areas. The apt was perfect for us, a couple who did a lot of outdoor things, but who also needed a relaxing base in which to rest after long days out. In terms of location, the flat is right in central Lerwick, so convenient for restaurants and shops, yet very quiet--with the skylights open we heard sea birds and sometimes local music (which was very pleasant). Parking was very convenient; it was a great base from which to explore Shetland. Jenny met us personally and ensured we had all we needed for our week there. The only caveats I would offer are that a) as noted, there are indeed steps to get into and out of the apartment, and b) if you are very tall (more than 6'1") the flat might not be the best choice, since the ceilings do slope. Really, though, I can't praise this flat and its owners enough. We'd recommend this to anyone.
Right in the middle of town, a well appointed modern flat. Helpful additions such as thermos and backpack (plus a brolly for when it rains in the Shetlands). Jenny and Billy friendly and helpful. Would strongly recommend
After a rough overnight crossing from Orkney courtesy of Storm Hector it was great to get settled in thanks to a text from Jenny offering an early check in.
The apartment is light and airy and really well equipped as well as being well placed in the centre of Lerwick. The warm welcome received from Jenny and Billy made us feel at home straight away as did the welcome pack. It was the little touches like provision of shopping bags, rucksack and even thermos flask that made the rental stand out. There was lots of information on what to see and do and we made the most of the maps and walks.
All in all it was a lovely break and we would recommend it to anyone.
Very well equipped flat,everything one would need and more.Super location,only a few minutes to the pier and the centre of Lerwick.Would highly recommend the flat to anyone wishing to visit the Shetlands.
