“Fantastic accommodation in a great location.”
Reviewed 25 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This was the best self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in. The house was warm, clean and comfortable and well presented. The facilities provided were of a high standard and we felt at home straight away. It was great to have easy access to the beach and sea views from our bedroom and living room. Would love to return. Thank you, Nichola.

“Perfect peace”
Reviewed 8 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

person found this review helpful

At this time of year, this is a very peaceful place. The views from the windows are stunning and the sound of the waves is lovely. It's a beautiful house, set on a lovely beach and is easily accessible. It is a good base to either walk or drive to nearby towns and on lazy days there is opportunity to just sit by the window and enjoy the view.

“Lovely house beside beautiful beach”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We rented the Boathouse again for the 3rd year running and once again thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Whilst the weather was not as kind this year as it has been in the past 2 visits, this did not affect our holiday experience. The accommodation is spotless, modern, in an excellent location and Nicola always provides little extras which are a welcome bonus. The play park at the front is very good and has a variety of play equipment for all ages, the beach, which is a 2 minute walk away, has beautiful golden sands with superb sunsets. The tarried paths to both Whitehills and into Banff itself are great for walking and cycling. There is lots to do in the surrounding area. I cannot fault it. Great for a family getaway to chill out and relax. I would have no qualms with booking this lovely house again.

“Perfect Location”
Reviewed 24 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

what a gem of a place, everything so clean, loved that the wine was cooled and priced reasonable.
The views were breath taking, could have just sat and stared out of the window all day.
Cant wait to plan a trip back to Banff.
Thank you for having a lovely holiday rental.

“Absolutely fantastic holiday house!”

people found this review helpful

My fiancé and I spent a weekend at The Boathouse at Banff Links and wished we could have moved in! It is a wonderful little house with everything you need for a relaxing break. Beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean, we were very impressed from the moment we opened the front door! With modern appliances and a super sound system, we were set for a lovely, chilled out weekend! Brilliant location and comfortable house = perfect trip away from it all! We will be back but for longer! We have already recommended the Boathouse to our family and friends!
