"The pod is absolutely perfect has everything you need to enjoy your stay including an ice machine! The views are incredible and to be able to enjoy them while outside in winter in a hot tub doesn't get much better. Kitchenette has tea, coffee and milk available so no need to buy your own for a nights stay. Heating easy to use and warms the pod very quickly. Towels and robes clean and saves you bringing your own either. Scrabble and chess kept under a very comfortable bed. Can't speak highly enough of this place."
"Just the perfect little getaway, dog friendly and a hot tub! Also as it was a treat we had brought a bottle of fizz so seeing an ice machine on arrival was a great bonus!"
"Great size, hot tub at 40 degrees was so good. Shower and bathroom was good and hot enough and plenty towels for us to use. Used the bathrobes for the hot tub also All the kitchen things we needed a clothes horse to dry towels on. Heating was lovely and warm and easy to use Communication was top notch and Ben replied very quickly to all messages before during and after stay. Easy to get to and access TV was easy to use Very happy with our stay have no complaints at all! "
"So clean and tidy, everything we needed was there (pots, pans, bowls etc). Very good value for money and view from hot tub is amazing."
"The USP here is the fantastic hot tub and the attention to detail within the pod. The owner has thought of everything!"
"The pod was in a fantastic rural location. Quiet and private. The hot tub was an amazing feature and being able to take our dog with us made the trip even better. The pod is super cosy and an amazing get away! Loved every minute. The gated garden surrounding the pod was perfect for piece of mind that the pup was safe also!"
"The property was nestled in a very quiet location, breath taking views all around. Very spacious, warm and immaculate Pod with a relaxing warm Hot Tub to soak in at night after a day of exploring."
"What an amazing find! This little pod has to be one of the best places we have stayed on our many travels. It's bigger that it looks from the photos, and we were amazed by how comfortable and well equipped it was - there was absolutely everything we could possibly want, from robes and slippers to a champagne bucket and ice machine. The pod has been designed very cleverly, making use of every inch of space. The glorious hot tub is of course the best bit - it was on and ready for us when we arrived, and we spent over two blissful hours in it with a bottle of champagne and of course the view over Suilven mountain. We had everything we needed to cook a nice little dinner, and the pod was very warm and cosy even though it was a chilly autumn night outside. The shower was good, the bed was comfy, and drinking coffee outside on the deck watching the sun come up the next morning was blissful. We didn't actually go into Lochinver as we had planned to cook that night to make full use of the pod (and to maximise hot tub time), but I highly recommend the hike we did the next morning starting at nearby Achmelvich beach (stunning!) and heading to Alltan'abradhan and the little (deserted) cove nearby. The whole area is simply breathtaking - we can't wait to return."
