We had the most amazing short break at 40 Alfred St. we originally book number 36 but shortly before we arrived Rosemary upgraded us. What an amazing cottage. I have stayed in many Airbnb’s and this has to be one of the best. It’s a cosy, warm yet spacious former fisherman’s cottage. So well decorated and full of everything you could possibly need in a holiday cottage. The kitchen was so well equipped. Having a bathroom on both floors was a great bonus. So many lovely little extras. A huge range of teas and coffees and all the other condiments you could possibly need The bookshelves were crammed full of books and games. Never seen such a selection. We were so lucky to have great sunny weather. Sitting outside with a coffee and a Book whilst the boats sailed past, then cosy by the fire with some wine in the evening. Just heavenly. Communication with Rosemary was excellent and nothing was to much trouble. I can’t to come back and stay again.

“What an amazing place to stay. The place is immaculate throughout,all bedrooms are en-suite. The view from the private harbour front is as calming as it is beautiful. There is everything you will need with the apartment. There is the largest selection of herbs and spices available outside of a Michelin starred restaurant. Would recommend to anyone that wants a quiet getaway in Orkney,yet close enough to venture to all of the historic/ancient attractions”

“We absolutely loved our stay at South End. The house was beautiful, cosy and homely and perfect for a quiet few days away. There was nothing we needed that wasn’t available. Coffee on the pier in the morning was the best way to start a day and we were lucky enough to have the company of a seal on our last day as the sun came up. Rosemary was a wonderful host and very helpful when answering our queries. We wouldn’t hesitate to come back to Stromness. When we do, we’d definitely be looking to stay in one of Rosemarys properties.”

This house is a (not so)wee gem! Set over three floors in a lovely location at the water’s edge, it is decorated nicely, beautifully clean, good bed linens, loads of thoughtful touches, quality appliances and laundry facilities... I could go on! Stromness was the perfect base for our first trip to Orkney and it won’t be our last. Beautiful sunrises, loads of birds and it was lovely to watch the ferry going back and forth from the pier too. I recommend this house to anyone needing plenty space in a superb spot in Stromness!

A great house in an fantastic location. 7 of us stayed for 3 nights. Despite the weather we had a lovely stay in the house and enjoyed the views over the harbour. The bedrooms were really well equipped with stylish decor and comfortable beds. The self contained part of the house in the basement was ideal for my mum and dad. All in all a lovely property and I would recommend to others.”

"Hi Rosemary 

Really loved the cottage. Exceptionally cozy and we loved the feeling of homing down and cooking comfort food in your well-equipped kitchen while enjoying the dramatic views of the boisterous sea right outside.  The sunrises at this time of the year across the sea are exceptional – could not be a better way to enjoy one’s cuppa coffee in the mornings, while sitting on the pier.  We feel well rested and stress free.  Thank you!"

Thanks again

The views from the pier out back were stunning and the garden area was lovely too. I enjoyed sitting out on the pier early in the morning with a cup of tea, watching the water and the sea birds. It was very peaceful. There were plenty supplies of everything in the house and so many personal little touches that made us smile. Thank you so much and we hope to be back again in the future.”

"Hello Rosemary, I have left you a note at number 10 but suspect it might be a while before you get it. So, I just wanted to thank you and say what a fantastic week we had in Orkney. The house and location are wonderful and everyone agreed they had never stayed in such a well equipped holiday home before. It accommodated the eight of us well and we were all charmed by the decoration and layout.

Half of the group had never been to Orkney before but are now as addicted as I am. Number 10 was all part of that.

So a big thank you and hopefully, we will be back one day.

With best wishes"

" Dear Rosemary,

We've just got home from a week staying at 18 South End. As we couldn't find a visitor's book, I just wanted to thank you for our stay.  It was absolutely fabulous, far exceeding all our expectations... The house could not have been in a better position, in fact we found ourselves spending hours just sitting with binoculars watching the boats, birds seals and ever-changing light from the garden or the conservatory. I have stayed in many holiday cottages but never one so well equipped and with so much attention to detail. All  this as well as being warm, comfortable and spotlessly clean.

Just a very preliminary enquiry....Might it be available for the same week next year? 

Best wishes"

" Morning Rosemary,

We have had a wonderful holiday her. All packed and ready to go after our breakfast.

The weather could have been kinder but no matter...we came prepared.

We met up with old friends Bill and Jean Crichton who live just along the road.

Saw all the things we wanted to see. Had some lovely meals at the Ferry Inn and particularly at The Shore in Kirkwall. Both owned by Bill and Jean’s son Gareth. We bumped into him at his latest acquisition The Royal last night . We was going at it as he was overwhelmed by the “Folk” folk!

We had a pleasant surprise lunch in the Stromabank Hotel in Hoy.

The house is first class and so very well appointed. The views from the upstairs lounge were a constant joy.

Thank you for everything. We are thinking about next year with our missing friends so maybe will be in touch.

Regards."

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay in Stromness. The house is lovely and my granddaughters wanted to stay forever - they particularly enjoyed finding wee bits of pottery on the ‘beach’ below the house and spent hours in the museum when we weren’t out and about. 

I have already passed on the link to your website to a number of friends - and we will definitely be back!

All the best ."

Thank you for allowing us to rent your lovely house. We found it perfect to just relax and enjoy the views.

Watching all the boats coming and going, great fir the soul. Hubby went fishing on several Lochs and was lucky enough to get a catch. We certainly would recommend to our friends and colleagues the wonders in holidaying in Stromness.

Good health, wealth and happiness be with you. All is appreciated. Bless!

"Rosemary,

We very much enjoyed our stay at 18, South End. The cottage was brilliantly well equipped and clean and we much enjoyed the view over the harbour.  It was good to be in Orkney again after a 10 year gap. We enjoyed the holiday so much that we would like to book 18 South End again if that is possible.

Looking at the website I see that it is free the week starting 22ndJune, 2019 but it is perhaps too early for July 2019 to appear. Ideally we would like to book 18, South End for 2 weeks from 22nd June. Would that be possible?  Do hope so.

Again many thanks for providing such a lovely cottage.

All the best,"

“Rosemary's place is just wonderful. She upgraded us just before we arrived to #40 instead of #36 so that's what I'm reviewing. Rosemary has a fabulous talent for creating warm, inviting, stylish and cosy decor with everything in the property you can think of. The location right on the harbour is stunning and a perfect place from which to sit and watch the boats or the storms depending on the weather. I can't recommend Rosemary's place or her as a host enough! Thank you Rosemary.”

“What a fantastic house. Right on the harbour side, interesting drive to get to it, through Stromness, fantastic location. House is better in real life than in the pictures, and the pictures are amazing. Fantastic hosts, lovely touches throughout the house, cannot recommend highly enough. We had lovely weather the week we were here, but what a place :)”
