"Excellent place for our family to enjoy all that Orkney has to offer. Great communication, amenities, and location. If you enjoy cooking you will love this kitchen!"

"Great place to stay. Convenient to everything with a lovely path to walk along beside the river to take us to town. The cottage is very modern and well equipped, it had everything we needed and we were extremely comfortable. Kate was great, easy to communicate with and met us at the time we had arranged. Lovely and friendly. Highly recommended."

"Convenient location to Stromness (walking-close) and the ‘top’ archaeological sites. Groceries, restaurants and pleasant walks nearby. Comfortable beds and well-equipped kitchen; warm greeting from Kate and she was great at communicating along the way. Very comfy place; would definitely stay there again and want to come back! Did day trips to North Hoy and Rousay, on rented bikes, visting ancient sites and hiked to views; those were the best days of our entire trip!"

"Great location only a short stroll from Stromness town centre. Comfortable, tastefully decorated and well equipped accommodation. Very friendly and welcoming host"

"We stayed at Hamn-Vagr for a long Orkney weekend in July 2017. Kate & Douglas could not have been more accommodating, meeting us at the house on arrival and providing useful suggestions on everything from local restaurants to grocery shopping. We took advantage of the well appointed kitchen to cook several meals at home. And the house is extremely well located, just outside Stromness and close to the Ring of Brodgar. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable weekend."

"Will definitely be back - thanks for everything!"
