Another great visit to the folk festival and stay in Christine's lovely cottage. Perfectly sited in centre of Lerwick. Beautiful sunshine too!

Amazing location right off of commercial street. Great for exploring Lerwick by foot. The cottage is clean, charming and has everything necessary for a good stay.

The lovely cottage is in a great location and next to what we needed for our break away from London. The cosy cottage was the perfect hideaway next to Fort Charlotte and the lovely Havly cafe, and minutes walk from everywhere in Lerwick.

A lovely little cottage that was in the perfect location for what we needed it for. Homely, comfortable and had everything we needed. And a lovely couple who were approachable and helpful. Would recommend.

Great location in town centre. The cottage is very quaint with loads of character. We loved sitting by the kitchen window with the sun pouring in, with a book and a glass of wine. The property was clean, comfortable and cosy, with everything we needed to make our stay in Lerwick a very pleasant experience. We had no problem parking our car just outside the property. We can definitely recommend this property. Thank you for making our first Airbnb experience a success.

We received a very warm welcome on arrival and immediately felt at home in the cosy cottage which had everything we needed for a few days in Lerwick, including an extremely convenient location a few steps from the town centre. Christine and her husband are very friendly and attentive hosts who went out of their way to assist when a small health issue arose. Thanks for that! I warmly recommend the cottage to people coming to Lerwick to visit and would be only too happy to return some day.

Fantastic location, so handy for everything and car parking not a problem. Just one street off Main Street in Lerwick and close to ferry terminal. Cottage itself is old fashioned but quaint, basic but with everything you needed. Couple were lovely very friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome.
