What an incredible experience! I cannot recommend staying here highly enough. They are the most lovely and kind couple. We were welcomed with tea and cake which we got to have more than once throughout our stay, beautiful breakfasts, views, log fires and company. I have used air b n b for a while now and this has to be the best place we have ever stayed just wonderful!
Another wonderful stay at Tim & Rina's hilltop paradise. Our favourite Airbnb - make it yours too!
It's difficult to make a unique contribution here when other reviewers have already expressed so eloquently the tranquility of The Highlands and the sincerity of our hosts, so let me just say that Rina and Tim are indeed a credit to AirBnB and a tonic at the end of a long day. The views are spectacular, property is exemplary, but it's the warm welcome (first visitor by motorcycle - hurrah!) from two well-travelled big-hearted individuals that will have you coming back time and time again. I wholly, unreservedly, enthusiastically recommend you spend a night here if you're ever lucky enough to have the chance.
Ditto Mark - it takes a big heart to recognise the other soulmates. We can only reiterate what a pleasure it was to see you here. Perhaps next time you can have a go at riding a real motorcycle... I did think that the rain would have completed the valet job. We do hope to see you again!
Wonderful hosts, wonderful home, wonderful views! We had a great stay at Kerry. Tim and Rina made us feel very much at home with a cuppa on arrival with much talk. The conversations continued in the evening and in the morning when we shared breakfast. Their home is a beautifully renovated 17th century house which makes the most of the stunning views. The room and ensuite were very comfortable and breakfast included a great variety, including a beautiful berry compote.
Our stay was a very special experience for our last B&B on our months tour of the UK.
The super host title is well deserved
Well, where to start... Tim accepted the request extremely quickly, then staying in regular touch checking that I had all the info needed to get there and was ready to book somewhere for me to eat once I'd arrived. Once I was there I was made to feel very welcome by Tim and Rina, and was shown to a lovely en-suite room in their beautiful home.
The bed was very comfortable and I slept really well. In the morning the view from the house was spectacular. I had a wonderful time and hope to visit again. This is a real gem on airbnb, and amazing value too. If you're travelling in Wales I'd recommend making time to stay with Tim and Rina, even if it means a lengthy detour...you won't be disappointed.
Thank you both for a truly wonderful stay.
Tim's place is on top of the world (well Wales anyway)
Tim and Rhena welcomed us so warmly. We sat and had a wonderful get acquainted time in front of a wonderful fire. The room was so comfortable. We really slept well that night. The next morning was a breakfast fit for royalty, which we certainly felt like. They may be out in the country, but it is absolutely beautiful. Well worth the drive!
