Lovely, clean apartment with beautiful view of the bay. The location was quiet and very convenient to main roads and Portree, would definitely recommend staying here over being in the middle of town if you have a car. They were kind enough to leave food in the fridge as well as nice linens and towels so that was great.
One downside was the internet was very slow to none at all, which was a bummer as I had work to do, but hosts told me they'd called someone to fix it so might be better for the next guest.
Maureen was a wonderful host - she made everything easy, from the earliest communications and directions, through to the welcome treats (including flowers, breakfast items, milk, cheese, biscuits etc) and on to a beautifully and thoughtfully appointed unit. Everything was so comfortable and pleasant. Location was also great. Quiet and so pretty
This was the perfect location for us to visit Skye - it's a few minutes from Portree and about halfway to everywhere else on the island. We arrived after dark and it was a pleasant surprise to find the food and juices in a refrigerator. As others have mentioned, the view is spectacular: Portree on the other side of the lake and the silhouette of Old Man of Storr in the background.
The apartment is an extension of Maureen's family house and the place felt safe. One night there was electricity shortage in the area and she had left us candles and a flashlight.
The washing machine proved to be very useful - we were in the middle of a two weeks trip and this allowed us to leave with clean clothes. Although we preferred eating outside most of the time, the kitchen had everything needed to cook except perhaps a proper coffee machine.
This was our first experience with Airbnb and it exceeded greatly our expectations.
We had an absolutely gorgeous time at An Storr. Maureen was lovely, warm and caring! She had provided all sorts of extra treats and gourmet delights for breakfasts, fresh flowers and useful maps and guides. She offered great advice on how to use our time productively, what sights to see and what to do! The climbs and walks were beautiful- such spectacular, magical scenery! I was so sorry to spill coffee all over the bed just as we were supposed to leave. Thank you Maureen for being a wonderful host- your apartment was an exceptionally calming and beautiful space.
We couldn't have been happier with An Storr as a "home" on the Isle of Skye. Location was great ... Literally five minutes from Portree. Ideal for exploring all corners. The apartment was clean and modern, with a lean Scandinavian feel. Radiant floor heating was a treat and the bed was so comfy, the towels big and fluffy. As others have said, plenty of provisions, all the tools you could want for cooking, and a washer/drier combo unit. Nice leather sofa and big screen tv, free wifi and lots of outlets for the modern traveler. Guest book in which visitors write visitors tips is a great touch.
We had a great time at Maureen's place. She left food in the fridge to help us get started. The place was impeccable and everything was good quality and highly up to date. You can see the Old Man of Storr and Portree from the couch. Maureen was very friendly to our family. The house is a good location to tour the Isle of Skyle from due to its central location. We would definitely recommend staying there.
My husband and I had a lovely time at An Storr. Maureen made us feel welcome and at home. The apartment is lovely and clean, with the bonus of a spectacular view from the living room.
The kitchen has all the equipment you will need to make a quick breakfast or a full supper. There's even some Tupperware-type containers for packing lunches for your days hiking. Basic groceries, coffee and tea were there for us. The washing machine was very welcome after spending over a week hiking in other parts of Scotland.
A secluded and quiet base with easy access to everything on Skye.
My parents and I had a lovely stay at Maureen's apartment. It had all the comforts of home (including a washing machine and well-stocked fridge with generous breakfast provisions) and wonderful views over the water to Portree. Maureen was kind enough to provide extra bedding so I could sleep on the very comfy couch and wake up to that view each morning. This was the ideal base to explore the island, and the guestbook of other visitors' recommendations provided lots of inspiration for day trips. This was our first time on Skye and Maureen's place provided the perfect welcome. Thank you!
Maureen is very friendly & welcoming. We had a wonderful stay at an Storr. The apartment has everything you would need including a great view. It's quiet & relaxing but only a few minutes from Portree. The apartment is lovely & modern. Very clean. Comfortable bed and great shower. Maureen also helped us organise our ferry departure.
Everything is perfect！
