  • "Lovely property,garden great for dogs and woods to walk through just steps from the door."

    Weather was beautiful all week. 5 min from Granton on Spey and 15min from Avimore though Greenaway is secluded. Wouldn't hesitate to book again.

    Dear Simon, Many thanks for your fantastic feedback and I am glad you had a great holiday. We look forward to welcoming back to Greenaway again in the future. Regards Paul Property Owner

  • "The property and enclosed garden are huge."

    There are lovely views of the mountains and there are lots of things to see and do in the local area of the Cairngorms. The huge smart TV does not receive the usual TV channels, you need to login into apps to access the TV channels, so the iplayer for BBC channels, the Chanel 4 app for Channel four TV etc. There were plenty of toilet rolls left in the property and washing up liquid but there is nothing else, so no condiments, cling film, foil, bin bags etc. We had an Asda delivery the first night we were there so you don't need to have a huge shop en route. A pack of instructions would be good explaining how things work etc would be good.

    Dear Janet, Thank you for your feedback and I am glad you enjoyed the views and garden. As Greenaway is a self catering unit we do not supply condiments - my apologies if that is an issue for you. I will ensure there are supplies of bin bags and foil in the future, thank you for bringing this to my attention. Regards Paul Owner of Greenaway Property Owner

  • "The house was spacious and well presented with all the amenities we required."

    We enjoyed the large garden space and the beautiful views from the bedroom windows. The house was central to some enjoyable family days out.

    Dear Kirsti, Many thanks for your feedback. I am glad you enjoyed the fabulous views and the large garden. There are some fantastic days out locally with something for all the family. Best wishes, Paul Owner of Greenaway Property Owner

  • "A large and very comfortable property."

    Kitchen was well equipped and the bathrooms were large and very up to date. The 3 main bedrooms also very spacious with plenty of storage space. The dog loved the size of the garden which was well enclosed. Property is in a very peaceful location, but handy to all the facilities in Aviemore.

    Dear Joanne, Thank you for your feedback and I am really glad you enjoyed the space within the house and your dog enjoyed the garden - the garden and surrounding woodland is dog two sheepdogs love it at Greenaway. Holidays there are as much for the dogs as they are for us! Best wishes, Paul Owner of Greenaway Property Owner

  • "Lovely property, but lacking a few items- tea cozy, washing line- I know there was an airer but not big enough for 6 people."

    What would have been really great would have been a dish washer.Washing up on holiday is not good and you never know if the items are cleaned properly from one person to another between stays. Info about recycling needed.But we loved it anyway.

    Hi Ciara, Thank you for your feedback. You bring out some relevant points. Firstly, information is now provided on recycling - thank you for prompting me. And secondly the conundrum on washing machine vs dishwasher - Greenaway was architecturally designed over 50 years ago without flexibility built into to re-working cupboard space etc. Therefore, despite trying to work out if I could get a dishwasher and a washing machine in the kitchen I concluded that it wasn't feasible so I am afraid a washing machine trumped a dishwasher. As the family dishwasher, I understand the situation isn't ideal but Greenaway's construction doesn't make for easy modification. I hope you will visit Greenaway again and thanks for your comments. Regards Paul Owner of Greenaway Property Owner
