“Great location for walking”
Reviewed 17 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Helped by glorious weather, we had a fantastic week at Rabbit's Bothie. David and Esme couldn't have been more welcoming and the accommodation was exceptionally clean and comfortable. Our main reason for this holiday was walking and the location was perfect as we were on the Coastal Path after a couple of minutes walk from the property. The property itself was in a quiet and safe location.

“Pleasant, Peaceful and Perfect Location”
Reviewed 7 July 2015 for a stay in May 2014

I could not write this review last year as Rabbit's Bothie was not listed on Tripadvisor. I found the website online which was very easy to navigate and make our booking. I also spoke to David before we arrived. Rabbit's Bothie is west of the Island and easy to find. We had our own parking space off road and there was a shed with lock for us to keep our bikes in. The apartment is a self-contained part of the original house were the owner's live. The apartment comes with it's own back garden and lovely little verandah. There is an open plan lounge, diner and kitchen, a lovely large bathroom with shower, washing machine and dryer and the bedroom had the most comfortable bed. The lounge had flat screen TV, the kitchen was so well equiped and Esme and David provided everything need from washing powder to bread, milk and other food items made on the IOW. There was also lots of information on the island, places to visit and bus passes for our use. David and Esme were delightful hosts and it was a pleasure to stay here. The area is interesting and there are a lot of places to walk and enjoy.
