Bonjour Linda,

Here is a small mail to thank you again for the great week that we have spent in your very beautiful house.

We were looking for a peaceful place and we found it! The house is ‘un nid doux’ with so much attention everywhere …  We have had a good weather conditions (just 2 days of rain, which was the occasion to take advantage of the Longhouse and its fire place), and we have visited all the places you recommended. Lewis & Harris is really an amazing island, with wonderfull landscape and natural life (boys have seen seals, deers!, and of course lots of rabbits …).  I will add that if your Internet site is really attractive, it is just nothing compare to the reality of your house!  My wife has stolen lots of ideas of the decoration. In two words, she wants the same house in Paris now!  For sure, I will live in a Taigh Fada House near Paris in 6 months max!

We are very sad here after this perfect vacation week. Thanks again.

Kind Regards

Hello Linda and Paul,

Thank you for your email and yes we had a lovely few days in your very, very comfortable house. … have thought of everything!  Although all the superlatives were already used, we particularly thanked Catriona as she is a gem.  We will most certainly be making a return visit and have spread the word amongst friends and family. That of course may not to be to our advantage when we come to make our next booking!

Best wishes,

Glenys and Alan, Ross-shire, Scotland

Dear Linda,

We had a great time and both really enjoyed staying in the house and seeing the island it was amazing. Catriona was charming and the pancakes were delicious. We managed to eat lots of seafood and seem to spend a lot of time sitting at the table eating and watching the view. Thank you for all your advice on where to find things. The only thing that we were not sure of was the hot water temperature as both showers were warm but neither hot. Otherwise house was perfect and seem to be stocked for any occasion which was great.  I am very certain that we will be back we had such a wonderful time and will endeavour to pass on our friends and family about the house and wish a big thank to both you and your husband for letting people such as us rent such a wonderful home.

We had a fantastic time, helped by superb sunny weather and in spite of the cold easterly wind. The house is superb and Catriona very helpful, and yes we are very sad to be home and would certainly look at another trip to Lewis, but only if we could book your wonderful house.  Once again, many thanks for having us stay in your wonderful house.

I have to congratulate you on the tremendous job you have done with the place. It is such an achievement and truly beautiful.  I love the materials you have used throughout and the Harris Tweed in the soft furnishings is so lovely.  We had a most wonderful time and would love to come back.
