Waterloo House is astonishing in almost every detail. From the location looking over the water to Lochinver, with Suilven in the distance, to the high, high quality gadgets and fittings, this is one seriously good self catering accommodation.
It was our base for a week, firstly with friends then my elderly mother in law. Ben, the owner, was very helpful and maintained regular contact, acting quickly to have a electrical glitch checked out by his sparky.
You have full use of a Netflix account, and other video devices as supplied via the free wi-fi and state of the art smart TV. There's enough storage in the American style fridge, a 6 ring Rangemaster cooker, seriously comfortable beds and more towels than you'll need. Stargazers can use the big telescope, or borrow the binoculars to search for local wildlife, such as deer, eagles and seals. And after a long day out and about, relax in the hot tub - we found this particularly relaxing, with the lights out staring at the stars - truly amazing.
One wee suggestion to Ben would be to possibly look into supplying a higher, firmer chair for any future elderly visitors (my mother in law struggled to get off the large sofa as it was a tad low for her) but that's more down to her physical needs rather than inadequate seating.
I definitely want to return as this is one of my favourite places in the world. I'd also recommend dining out at Peet's Restaurant - amazing local food.

We booked this place for friends to stay at for our wedding and what a glorious place it is. Attention to detail throughout with luxury finish. Views over Lochinver through huge glass windows and deer in the "back yard". A great base for sight seeing and also for just chilling out at. Also very friendly and excellent service from the owner Ben.
Difficult to put into words. The place looked pretty fantastic in the photos and Ben was very friendly and helpful beforehand. Then we arrived, and were even more impressed.
The location is perfect, just below access to a beautiful 5 mile hilltop walk across to Achmelvich, and within easy access to Lochinver.
The lodge was so well equipped that we could really live as comfortably as we could at home, and were wanting for nothing. Cannot recommend this place highly enough.
This elevated property is in a beautiful location overlooking the working harbour of Lochinver. The garden is obviously a work in progress and once matured will be gorgeous in a year or two to match the house. We were impressed greatly by Bens helpfulness, all in all we had a lovely relaxing stay in this well equipped, modern property. The hot tub was a great investment and was brilliant to get in to at the end of the day.
Already recommended to friends, keep up the great work and good luck for the future.
