Why Nicky chose Oban, Isle of Mull & Lorn

I am told it has some :) one of them being that people can feel at home very quickly

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Nicky,



Mark mentioned that you emailed, but he has yet to get a chance to email you back. We thoroughly

enjoyed our stay. Everything was absolutely wonderful. The fact that you have everything available for

our use (dishes, towels, CD player, fire starters, etc) made the stay even better. Honestly, we have

been talking so highly about it ever since we have returned. We would LOVE to come again with a

couple friends. The pictures we took have sparked a lot of interest from both our families, and we

know it is booked through the summer, but we are planning on staying again. I hope we left it in decent

shape. We had to rush off Friday morning.



Sorry I can't be helpful with suggestions to make it better, because it really was wonderful. All that we

hoped for and more!



I hope to stay again in the future!



Have a great day.

The keys to paradise

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here as a surprise birthday trip, Nicky was really helpful throughout the whole process of booking and during our stay. we probably abused our right to text him about anything but he always replied promptly.
The cabin is amazing, really clean and has everything you need to cook up some serious dinners.
At no point do you wish you had brought that extra whip, there is one hanging conveniently by the stairs. The whole place is like a home from home. We were somewhat concerned about the selection of music that would await us, however it seems the owner is quite the jazzer. Perfect for an evening getting our scrabble on by the fire.
Overall I couldn't recommend the bubble more, I've already convinced all of my friends to go just from stories and pictures. Do yourself a favour, stop looking for anywhere else and book up immediately. You won't regret it, even if it to just read the hilarious welcome pack.
P.S take your fishing gear, we caught a 2 foot whale from right outside the cabin

Owner's Response: One thing about this review which you should encourage yourself to make believe you had never read , that the place was "really clean" whilst i do the best job i can and present the place well , you should not convince yourself it will be ultra sterile with no dust or insects to the point where if you have to perform an emergency appendectomy, then this chalet will be the perfect sterile place to do it .like anywhere there will be dust in places if the mere idea of dust makes you twitch uncontrollaby , please go elsewhere :)

Wonderful property in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5
This property must now rank among one of our favourite places to stay and in large measure due to the owner Nicky. We only managed a couple of days but will most definitely return. The setting on the edge of Loch Awe was idyllic and the weather was kind enough to allow us to spend time at the loch side and the fireplace a welcome respite after a days touring. The property was very comfortable and well equipped. The views were outstanding and there is plenty to do in the vicinity and a little further beyond, vital with 3 teenagers. Nicky was brilliant at keeping in contact prior to our departure and we can't recommend this place highly enough.

Perfect seclusion

  • 4 of 5
We had a lovely relaxing 4 night stay at the bubble. The chalet is quirky but has everything you need including a really beautiful view overlooking Loch Awe. It really is off the beaten track and I loved the twisty, hilly road that takes you to Dalavich. Having said that you aren't so remote that you can't have some tremendous day trips - we visited the Sealife Centre outside Oban, the stunning Kilchurn Castle, Inverawe Smokery and Oban itself. The owner Nicky couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. Would definitely recommend.

The Man, The Myth, The Legend...

  • 5 of 5
There we were, my girl and me,
Seeking a place with some mystery
We’d searched high and low for a place to go,
But minimum stays were an annoying blow

Then out of the darkness a light had shone,
On someone who seemed way too far gone
A kindred spirit, a crazy, a loon,
We were definitely beating to the sound of his tune!

We laughed through his website,
Eyes raised incredulously
Blowing our minds,
With vids of kitty

Travelodge? Holiday Inn?
They’d have taken us in
But this is the place,
For the rustic win

The place could sleep eight,
For you and your mates
You could even fit more,
With bean bags galore

The kitchen was functional,
For the essential feeds
With utensils and pans,
Serving all basic needs

There was plenty of heating,
With a wood burning fire
For those cavemanly men,
Whom you wish to aspire

We stayed just one night,
Which was over too fast
No question we’ll return,
And we’ll make it last

We cannot recommend…
This place highly enough
And the owner is made,
Of the right (mental) stuff!

breathtaking scenery

  • 5 of 5
we have just returned from a week in the bubble. it is a well equipped chalet in the middle of nowhere which is great for those seeking a complete break from the rat race. Nicky is the ideal host who kept in touch with us prior to our arrival. Our son was impressed with the surprise! & our dog loved sitting watching the world go by from the floor to ceiling window. Would recommend.
