Un kit complet pour le thé nous attendait ainsi que des petits gâteaux maison. La maison était très confortable et idéalement située par rapport au lac. Nous avons fait un bon feu chaque soir et le bois était à notre disposition dans le jardin. La maison était bien équipée pour une famille et nous en avons bien profité.
This was our second time staying at My Ben Rye! We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the comfortable house immensely. When we made our booking, Gavin & Lucie happily welcomed us back and said they hoped we would get good use out of the new bbq, which was lovely.
The housekeeper, Jan, was particularly helpful during our stay. We hope to be back soon!
Though I did not get to meet Gavin and Lucie, they were very timely with communication. The house itself was lovely. It was an absolutley amazing location!!

La casa es muy cómoda, amplia, con todo lo necesario incluso para una estadía larga. El anfitrión se preocupa de todos los detalles y hasta dejó juguetes para nuestro hijo. El jardín y la vista son magníficos, de ensueño. Muy recomendable, un lugar para regresar.
Great homely cottage in a really nice location. The house had everything you would need and the views are amazing.

About the Host, Gavin & Lucie
Hello and thanks so much for checking out our profile,
We like to think that we are positive spirited, young, courteous and mildly interesting people from the beautiful city of Edinburgh - a place we cannot wait for you to get to know!
We love to travel and have been fortunate to visit, live, study and work in various parts of our exciting world. Since moving back to Edinburgh, we both decided to try hosting on airbnb - and here we are, almost three years later.
As guests and hosts, airbnb has brought so many interesting people into our lives and has changed our opinions about travel. We can't wait to meet you, and really hope you will love our homes, city and country!
Thanks for visiting and happy travels!
Gavin and Lucie
