Golden Wedding Celebration with family
We had a wonderful stay at Pier House, the property was in an ideal location and we felt really at home in this lovely house. There was so much space that even with ten of us we felt we all had plenty of room . Knowing the island so well was a bonus as we knew where we wanted to take our family to show the grandchildren where their mum and dad spent some lovely holidays so we have created new memories which was very special to us. The neighbours were very friendly and although it was festival week we found empty beaches and lots of space. The young adults who all play instruments gave us lots of concerts in the wonderful lounge which has great acoustics we were told. Thankyou once again for sharing your house with us and we suspect it won,t be our last visit.Ann and Bob Hall and family
Pier House is in a great location, amazing views across the bay & has everything you could need. The toy area upstairs was a particular hit, as was the beach just outside. Perfect!
Had a great time . House very cosy and right next door to our favourite distillery ....what more do you want. Thoroughly recommended.
Many thanks for your review.
We look to hosting you again.
Pier house has everything you need for a great stay, its big and roomy and warm. I would not hesitate to recommend this house for couples or families alike. The view across the bay is mesmerising in all weather conditions. We visited most of the beaches on islay our favourite was machir bay. Islay isn’t just for the whisky connoisseur its also for nature lovers, with a wealth of species on offer. The hen harriers on the rspb reserve at Gruinart Bay were spectacular.
Home from home
Beautiful views and the best equipped house we have ever rented
Comfy spacious house in a great location
We were a family group of 8 made up of regular visitors to Islay and two who were there for the first time . It was our first time staying in Pier house but hopefully not our last. It is a very spacious and comfortable house with spectacular views over Loch Indaal. We had other family staying elsewhere in Islay and managed to seat all 17 of us around the kitchen table once we had figured out that the table could be extended. We put 4 Kayaks in the water from the small beach in front of the house and caught fish and crabs from the pier. Bruichladdich is a great location for visiting our favourite beaches of Saligo and Sanaigmore but unfortunately the wonderful weather of the last few months did not continue for our holiday. There is so much to do and see on Islay that the weather didn't stop us. Our main highlight of this year's visit was a boat trip with Islay Sea Adventures (highly recommended) to celebrate Dad/Grandad's 85th birthday. We needed 2 boats to take all 17 of us and stopped to celebrate with a dram of Laphroaig and glass of Prosecco as well as birthday cake of course.
The Pier House description states there are 2 sofabeds in the lounge but the only sofabed in the house is located in the large ensuite bedroom. This was not suitable for our party but the owner gave us permission for someone to sleep on one of the couches in the lounge and extra bedding was provided. I have to give a special mention to the housekeepers Anne and Catriona who were very quick to respond when we encountered a few issues with the house, including providing additional towels. We will be back in Islay next year to celebrate 50 years since our 1st visit.
Thank you for your lovely review. I will make sure that the information regards the sofabeds is amended.
Sorry for the unavoidable issues which arose during your stay.
If you would like to stay at Pier House again, then please do not hesitate to get in touch. New carpets are now in throughout the house and the boiler has not had a problem since Iain installed the new parts.
Thank you for your patience during these issues.
Your holiday sounds amazing despite the weather.
