“Excellent location”
Reviewed 1 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Excellent location and a great stay in a lovely cottage. Having stayed last year we knew it would be good and the cottage was as clean, tidy and well equipped as previously. Although maybe a little maintenance of minimal things is required,like stuff lying around the back of the house, a proper washing line, back door handle loose, kitchen tap leaking. These were very minor things all most likely the result of a busy season and as the cottage is otherwise immaculate and well maintained, I have no doubt that they will be rectified. Yet again a very pleasant and enjoyable stay in a perfect location for Luskentyre Beach.

“Beautiful cottage overlooking Luskentyre sands”
Reviewed 16 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We have just returned from a fantastic week in Cuckoo Cottage. We were really lucky with the weather but the whole trip was perfect. The cottage is ideally located with great and ever changing views over Luskentrye sands. The dunes, vast white sands and turquoise sea can be accessed in 2 minutes. The main beach for swimming is a lovely 10 minute walk away surrounded by mountains and views of Taransay. I highly recommend this cottage, its location and the whole of South Harris !

“Not quite the holiday we paid for!”
Reviewed 4 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The location of the cottage could not be faulted as the views were stunning. The slightly quirky mixture of old and new was also to our liking, as was the comfortable bed and lovely bathroom. Unfortunately, we experienced a series of problems :when we arrived the underfloor heating not working, the outside satellite TV cable was broken (& clearly had been for some time) and the DVD player was also faulty. We appreciate that such things may happen but what was most frustrating was the fact that because the number to contact the owner, which had been provided was, 'no longer in use' we could not report these issues until we drove to another part of the island ,where I was able to get a phone signal strong enough to send an email.
Once the owner was aware of the problems he did his best to sort them out quickly but the fact remains that this was not until Wednesday , for a holiday that started on the previous Saturday and cost over £700.
