We enjoyed our stay a lot however confused why we never had any contact from the host despite having sent Air Bnb messages and we left a voicemail. We did book with only 24 hours notice. We found the key in the door upon arrival. We did not know how easy it is to get around Oban and wanted to know what to do once off the ferry. Luckily it was not raining and we could roll our one suitcase up the hill with our 1 year old in a backpack with no problem. The house is 5 minutes walk from the dock. Also, the only heat is a wood stove, which we had to stoke in the middle of the night...but added to the rustic charm. (We only had to stoke it to keep the baby warm...the bed had a heated layer so we would have been plenty warm.) The house had every amenity we could want, even a high chair and pack and play for the baby! Very convenient location and lots of birds in the yard. I would highly recommend staying at Whalers Rest.
Janes place was clean, tidy and comfortable. The location was ideal close to everything and the uphill walk was good to help keep the weight stable. I would recommend Whalers Rest to families, couples and singles looking for a quiet sanctuary close to every thing you need on Stewart Island. Hopefully I get a chance to go back soon. Cheers, Robert.
Just wonderful! We've had a brilliant stay in your home Jane, in a very very special place in the world. Your advice for Ulva Island guide could not have been better. Honestly the best break we've had in many years. Your home, your advice - all just top notch. We would be privileged to stay again.
