We love the outdoors as quiet as possible, empty beaches, amazing vista's, hence we emigrated and built u our lives here at Harris. Letting guests have the same amazing feeling is what we go for and Sea View House is home from home, but quirky, think you love it!
Sytske purchased this House in 2014
Why Sytske chose Harris
Ocean Side with amazing views!!
What makes this House unique
Birdwatching, beach and hill walks as many as you like, quiet, remote, lots of wild life you hear the Seals from the house fighting over the rocks, otter living at the back of our house, seeing Gannets diving, just nature at it's best on the doorstep!

Perfect situation with the most wonderful views of any Cottage I have stayed in.
Sea View House was absolutely ideal for our holiday needs. Masses of everyday living space, very comfortable space to relax in and enjoy the wonderful views especially from the picture windows. We have never been so relaxed! We really had to wrench ourselves away from Harris and Sea View House. Great base to explore the islands from, we ate the most wonderful sea food and lamb at the local restaurant at the end of each day, just the most perfect way to relax after a days exploring. Best get away from it all break we have honestly ever had.
We think holidays at Harris is all about relaxing, exploring and charging the batteries with new energy, through lovely walks at empty beaches, experiencing the unspoilt nature of Harris, space to breath and a luxurious house to stay. You seem to have enjoyed it all Martin, which is what we hope for every guest coming! Thank you for such a lovely review, written from the heart!
Absolutely stunning and inspiring basecamp !
Was lucky enough to spend a week at Sea View in mid September 2017, absolutely the perfect anchor to return to after a day enjoying everything Harris has to offer.
The house itself is perfectly placed, with two stunning windows framing an ever-changing seaview. Very hard to leave the window seats each morning ! The house is finished to an excellent standard and well deserves the 5 stars. The talent and vision which Suzan and Jan have put into the house is incredible – I’ll not spoil the amazing back stories which come with each item of furniture, decoration or piece of art – you can discover yourself when you arrive. If you love wood …. you will be in your element.
We never made it out to eat in the evenings – the house was so well equipped for cooking, and the views better then any restaurant could offer - the local shop in Leverburgh is well stocked, and of course you have an unlimited supply of fresh seafood if you visit the harbour…
With personal preferences towards walking, cycling and bodyboarding – there was more than enough to fill a week in South Harris itself, never felt the need to venture further (… and yet still more remains unexplored)
Highlights for me included:
• Beaches at Northton (especially Triaigh na Cleabihaig, where two dolphins joined for bodyboarding fun)
• Walking the Coffin Road (if you like a crime thriller - recommend you read Peter May’s book ‘The Coffin Road’ while you are visiting – there is a copy kindly available in Sea View)
• Ceapabhal for a lovely hill walk – stunning views for a relatively short (but steep) walk
• Cycling the Golden Road - much easier to stop and admire the views than trying to park a car. (…my word the seals !!)
• The Mission House Studio, Finsbay – incredible photographs and ceramic art
• Harris Gin – a purchase straight off the ferry provided a welcome treat to return to every evening.
• Evening walks to Rodel with the friendly sheep.
• The Butty Bus – Leverburgh Pier – superb Fried Egg rolls
• Croft 36 – Northton – lovely homemade bread .
• The weather - sunrises, sunsets and rainbows - unlimited.
Oh, and as for the sauna and jacuzzi … what better way to relax the muscles after a day exploring … and to think I was going to camp !
If you are thinking of visiting Harris - do not hesitate in booking Sea View – you will not be disappointed; Suzan and Jan have thought of absolutely everything. Absolutely !
Thank you so much for this all singing and dancing review!!
Beautifully finished house in a stunning location
We were greated with a warm welcome from the owners Suzan & Jan who are such a lovely couple and werevery informative and friendly. We count ourselves so lucky to have found Sea View House and it was exactly as described on the website, unique in its amazing decor, very comfortable & relaxing with luxury features , amazing uninterupted views to sea and an ideal base to explore. The standard of decor was very high with many home features & works of art created by the immensley talented & creative owners. The property was spotless clean and equipted with all mod cons. It was just fantastic to come home from a long day walking the many fabulous beaches and then warming our bones in the sauna before a soak in the jacuzzi then sitting relaxing by the window admiring the view with a nice glass of red with the log fire flickering away in the back ground..just heaven.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Sea View House and hope to be back again sometime soon..dont look any further, this is where you need to stay...excellent value and thoroughly recommended.
You wont be dissapointed.
NIall, how kind of you to write us such a lovely review, whilst we know how busy you are. We hope to may meet you both again! Thank you so much, Suzan
Very well equipped and spotlessly clean house, spacious and extremely comfortable rooms, large windows with stunning view, very quiet location and just ideal for a relaxing holiday. Friendly and very helpful owners who provided exceptional customer service, tipps and maps. We will be back and can wholeheartedly recommend this property.
Dear Verena, we like to thank you so much for your very positive review. You are such great guests, we would love to see you back!
A house with a soul
Spacious, artistic, very luxurious house by the sea side. The comfortable window seats make it easy to sit there all day and watch the ever changing skies, time just passes you by.
The house is so special with murals of Hebridean wildlife. It truly is a house with a soul. It was hard to leave, going home. Next time we’ll stay for 2 weeks at Harris and walk again at the white beaches and make another 1000 pictures of the turquoise seas. How we have enjoyed our stay!
