    About this property

    Dine al fresco on the balcony while enjoying the amazing sea views, or spend the day on the beach below the house and watch for dolphins.
    Seaside House is a spacious, detached house situated right on the shore in the delightful seaside village of Balintore. With large rooms throughout and superb sea views, it is ideal for families and larger groups. There is a bright, contemporary kitchen/dining room with Aga cooker, and plenty of dining space for 10 people. The living room is on the first floor and it has high ceilings, open fireplace and large bay windows, taking full advantage of the panoramic views across the sea. A large balcony, accessed from the living room and double bedroom, has plenty of room for al fresco dining, and provides an ideal spot for wildlife watching. There is a second living room on the ground floor, and all the bedrooms are generously proportioned, and there are two bathrooms, as well as an en-suite, making it ideal for a combined family holiday. The grounds lead down onto the sand and shingle beach direct from the house. Balintore has good local facilities including a pub, restaurant, café and a small local store, all within walking distance. While nearby Shandwick is renowned for its beautiful golden sand and is used for a variety of activities, including sailing, surfing and sea kayaking.

    T ‐ 8 Oct 2018
    "Nice house could do with upgrading. Lovely location by beach. George was extremely nice and also runs local pub where all locals very friendly. Would definitely go back."
    Lynda ‐ 6 Oct 2018
    "What a fantastic spacious house complete with views and access to the cleanest beach. The local shop had everything you could need and the local pub served fantastic food. The house was warm and would cater easily for a large number of visitors."
    Pete ‐ 30 Aug 2018
    "Stunning views and location. Disappointed with the condition of the house as toilet seat was lose and broke even when previous tenets reported, main window in living room misted and frosted due to seal in window unit faulty spoiling the veiw. Ignition on gas stove inoperative, handles missing off some windows. Kitchen was poorly equipped with worn plates and dishes. No hand soaps in any of the toilets. Overall disappointed as it wouldn’t take a fortune to make a big difference which you would expect when renting this kind of property."
    Valued Customer ‐ 16 Aug 2018
    "Great house and great location for all the family gathering together to celebrate my brother's golden wedding.We had a fabulous time."
    Paul ‐ 6 Aug 2018
    "Nice building and location let down by a lack of maintenance and poor equipment, Windows that would not open including a bathroom one a bedroom window jammed slightly open, frosted double glazed units, wobbly toilet seat, broken kitchen chairs, wobbly coffee table, broken dishwasher, leaking washing machine, leaking kettle, gas hob no ignition spark, sink plug chains detached, poor quality bedding/ mattresses and towels and the list can go on!There was no Welcome/ information pack, no upto date safety certificates and the guest visitors book had it's pages ripped out. No outdoor seating equipment except for 3 old plastic chairs for a party of 10. Overall very disappointed."
    Robert ‐ 15 May 2018
    "Mattresses require to be replaced. Everyone of our party of nine agreed that was the only downside of the holiday."
    Confirmed guest ‐ 16 Mar 2018
    "Really fantastic george looked after us very well. The house is beautiful and the scenery stunning"
    Tom ‐ 10 Jan 2018
    "Balintore has an award winning beach ,some nice walks and is close to some lovely towns and visitor attractions making it a nice area in which to stay.The house is a strange mix with a large kitchen and upstairs lounge which are quite pleasant.The bedrooms and bathrooms suffer from relatively poor quality/overused bedding and towels and an investment in these and improved curtains would improve things.Some of the windows appear to be locked with no keys apparent which could represent a bit of a fire risk.The Aga and central heating allowed us to enjoy good warmth.Mr Skinner, the owner , was friendly,attentive and well intentioned. Were he to invest as suggested, to improve certain quality items,the justification of the relatively high weeks rental would be enhanced.The house has potential but needs some monies spent on it."
