This is the perfect size of an apartment for two people. We only stayed one night and wished we could have stayed longer. Modern furnishings and super clean. Very comfy bed and great kitchen with all one might need or want. We would highly recommend this place!

Kathleen's flat is the perfect home away from home. It was better than expected with everything we needed and more. Loved the wee treats and the fresh flowers. Kathleen was the perfect host and even collected us from the airport. I would recommend to any traveller.

Not many things in life are perfect but Kathleen's apartment comes pretty close. It is meticulously presented and fully functional. Everything you need for a great stay in Kirkwall can be found at her apartment. Add on her very hospitable welcome and her responsive communication means my review ranking is a 9.9/10. Do yourself a favour -- next time you find yourself in Kirkwall book in at Kathleen's.

Really great stay at Kathleen's place. Very warm and tidy and not too bad of a walk to the city center. Kathleen was a gracious host who greeted me upon arrival. Communication was easy and check in was smooth. Would stay again and recommend to others.

Kathleen's place was wonderful! All of the appliances were quite modern and the kitchen was fully stocked. Groceries are about a 10 minute walk down the hill past a 12th century cathedral. Kathleen was easy to reach and quick to respond, with great suggestions and information. This was the best Airbnb experience we've had to date. Orkney has 3 historical sites per square mile and they were very easy to reach from Kathleen's place. Overall it was a great experience!

This house is excellent. Spotlessly clean, and with new, high quality bathroom and kitchen. It is quiet, and yet close to the town centre. Kathleen was most welcoming and had good suggestions on what to see on Orkney. Kathleen's communication was also prompt and clear. I had a very relaxed stay here. Thanks Kathleen!

We had a great time in Orkney, which started with a friendly, warm welcome from Kathleen, who is an excellent host. The house is very cosy and well-equipped; it felt like a home from home and we really enjoyed our stay here. The house is in a great location and is a short walk to the town. We would recommend the accommodation and would definitely return.
