“The friendliest , kindest hosts and place we have ever stayed.”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The apartment is very nice , comfortable and well appointed with everything you might need. You might wish to take a DVD player in case the weather isn't so great. We recommend that you must have a car for the best stay on these beautiful, wild, historic and fascinating islands.
ps love the tweeds of Harris and Lewis.

A lovely warm welcome from Rhoda and enjoyed our stay in very comfortable apartment. Lewis offers historical sights, lovely walks and great wildlife spotting.

We booked Kabuis Apartment only 1 week before our holiday on the Isle of Lewis. Once I had booked, I contacted Rhoda, the owner of the apartment, asking for directions from the ferry in Stornaway. When she knew we were not bringing a car, and planning to use a taxi to get to the apartment, she said she would meet us from the ferry and also take us to Tesco on the way home! This she did at 8.30 p.m.! She also promised to choose a good day to take us round the area to places that were 'difficult to get to by bus'. As promised, Rhoda spent a whole day taking us to all the amazing and interesting attractions on the west side of Lewis. All this was on top of supplying us with fresh and smoked salmon, local lamb chops from next doors croft, home made cake and fresh flowers! Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for Rhoda and her husband Neil. The apartment is cosy and stylish and has everything you need (and more) for a holiday home. It is situated in lovely South Shawbost, a good base to explore Lewis and Harris. The beach is a short walk away and there is a fantastic coastal walk taking you on dramatic cliffs and to beautiful beaches and coves. The local bus stops outside the door and will take you to various parts of the island and also does a circular tour of the west of the island via Stornaway. The bus service really is a SERVICE. The drivers stop anywhere you want and one driver even phoned ahead to our connecting bus to make sure he waited for us. What I liked best about our holiday? The warm and friendly welcome from Rhoda and Neil and the Islanders to their beautiful and very interesting island. The scenery and atmosphere will not be forgotten. What I liked least? Going home as we didn't have enough time to see everything. Even the rainy weather (October) didn't put us off.
