Well equipped and comfortable, the property is convieniently located just outside Lerwick. A great base for exploring. Thoughtful touches such as OS maps and thermos flasks provided for outings. We really enjoyed our stay.
We stayed in both Skarf and Grey Gos, two of the houses in the Decca, over the course of our Shetland vacation. Both houses were clean, comfortable, convenient, and so thoughtfully arranged. There were six of us, two kids, two seniors, and two parents very much in need of a holiday. We all absolutely loved the houses. You will need a car, but then it is incredibly easy to get into town (actually you could do it on bike too) or anywhere at all on the islands. This was part of a long European holiday for us and it was hands down the nicest, most comfortable place we stayed in. We had some wet weather and it was very cozy to come back to the Decca to dry off and relax for a few hours in the afternoons, or to spend evenings playing games in the living room. Gillian and Steve were very friendly and welcoming, and there were so many little extra, unexpected touches, like a backpack with tupperware and water bottle and various things to take hiking, some nice local beer on the table, along with tea and coffee and cookies, there were stuffed toys on the kids' beds. It really felt as if every possible comfort had been anticipated and provided. I can't recommend the place highly enough. It really had all the comforts of home (but it was much cleaner than home!).
It was deceptively spacious, 6 of us stopped there, 4 adults and 2 children. All modern amenities, lovely and clean. Nothing was too much trouble. You will need a car to get about but it was a 5 minute drive to Lerwick centre. We are definitely going to come back to Shetland and this accommodation will be first on our list.
The museums and shops of Lerwick were at most a mile away, but it felt like we were further into the countryside. The sheep in the surrounding fields may have had something to do with that. Quiet and peaceful. Grey Gös had everything we needed: plenty of space for our group (one couple + two singles) to socialize when we wanted to and to do our own thing when we didn’t, a well-equipped kitchen, laundry facilities. We would gladly stay here again.
