Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully clean & equipped with everything a family of 4 needed. Ron & Helen couldn't have been more helpful when there was an issue with the heating/lighting, they were there within minutes & it was all sorted. It was well maintained on a lovely quiet site, in a great position for local attractions. pity we didn't have enough time to see everything. Good local eating places, especially Pizzariach & the Rochiemurchus tearooms. Shop on site for day to day needs & a small play area for children. Lots of little 'extras' that you don't normally get including milk, welcome pack, toiletries, washing up liquid, lots of towels etc. All in all, super. Will recommend. Thanks for your kindness.

A little Gem in the Highlands

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely break we have had in Ron and Helen's beautiful Chalet! It had everything we needed to make us feel at home! Lots of extras which added to a really homely stay! Spotlessly clean ! A great location for walks and to visit the many attractions! Unknown to us we dropped our camera before we left on Friday and Ron was quick to get in touch and has arranged to post this back to us! Thanks to both the honesty of the next residents and Ron and Helen as we would never have known where we lost it. We would definitely recommend this holiday retreat in a beautiful part of the country! It really is a Gem! We will be back!

We had 2 toddlers. It was safe for them to roam around . kids were very happy.All the kids related facilities(high chair, toys, travel cot, potty seat, loved the kid sofa !!!!:) ) were provided.

We really enjoyed our stay in the chalet, it was very clean, comfortable, cosy, warm and very well equipped. There were three adults in our party, we found the chalet plenty spacious enough and is an ideal base for exploring the beautiful area, we all hope to come back and stay in the chalet again.

FANTASTIC CHALET!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic chalet in a beautiful and quiet park set only a short distance from bustling Aviemore and many other attractions in the area. The chalet is so well equipped, very modern and most importantly so warm and comfortable. We were relaxed from the minute we arrived and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our son really enjoyed the DVD collection, toys and the secure outdoor decking area. We will most definitely be back, most likely several times as this really has been a treasure to find. We can't wait to return! Thanks Ron and Helen for the fantastic holiday home away from home :)

This was a well equipped very comfortable chalet in an excellent holiday park. Ample room in chalet for the three of us, comes with comfy beds and suite, free view satellite and DVDs player on the television , large cooker and fridge freezer, two toilets one with a shower, towels supplied by owner.
