  • "Excellent. Will definitely be staying again."

  • "We had the most amazing holiday staying at One Sea, which sits in a beautiful location opposite Scarista Beach."

    The house was lovely with everything we needed for our stay; it was clean, warm and tidy, we had a lovely welcome pack on our arrival. On our last day Elly (housekeeper) was helpful sorting out an extra night at One Sea as the ferry service was cancelled due to adverse weather conditions which we were very grateful for, plus we got to stay an extra day on Harris. We would happily stay at One Sea when we visit Harris again - hopefully soon.

  • "I stayed at this property between the 8th of March and the 15th of March and I booked it because I had stayed at Otter Cottage approximately 200 yards along the road recently in January."

    On the face of it this is a modern property which certainly looks the part but I had a nightmare week there. On arrival no satellite signal so could not use the TV, the basement TV also had no signal but access to iPlayer etc, I could not use this as my wife is disabled and on a feeding pump and could not use the stairs, when I booked I made sure everything that I needed was on the one level, after much faffing about with the owner and the housekeeper the following day they arranged for a satellite repair guy to attend from Stornaway on the Monday to check the satellite position as they stated that there had been storms and had knocked out a lot of other satellites, two guys turned up in a private car without a ladder and new they couldn’t reach it , came into house and checked the connections and could find nothing amiss, and stated it was a subscription issue, by this time I’m none too pleased so they went away in the huff, spoke to housekeeper Elly who said that she would get onto Sky and get sorted, came back to me and said spent hours onto Sky and it would not be up and running now till the following Thursday ( now I’ve been a Sky customer for over 25 years and never been in situation where it would take more than a few hours to upgrade or install a package ). because the Tv in the lounge was Sky Glass then you could not use it even as an app , was offered a smaller tv by Elly on the Tuesday to get me at least BBC iPlayer but by this time I was not prepared to stay in and deal with it so told her to forget it, now guess what? by the Friday when I left there was still no picture ( took a photo as proof ), next door neighbour who was a nurse noticed my wife had a nasal tube and new she was on a feeding pump as this was now Wednesday she asked if we knew the power was going down in area the next day Thursday, I told her no I was not given any information about this, she said that everyone had three months notice of this as a few properties ( new builds ) up the coast were all being connected to the electricity grid and power could be out all day and possibly into the Friday. The house itself is cold, although you can allegedly up the thermostat to increase the temperature but the owner 600 miles away can override it, the ceiling is the height of a double decker bus so any heat goes straight up about 16 feet, the owner said to use the display fireplace to boost the heat but as I explained to him it is a fan heater which aims the heat into a glass fish tank type display and cuts itself out constantly, so my wife is sitting with a hot water bottle in a property that I had paid a premium price for. The lounge had no small tables to put a drink on so I had to go upstairs and take two bedside cabinets down to use as tables ( Elly came with two small tables on the Sunday or Monday ) the lounge has large windows but no blinds or curtains so you are sitting there at night and feel like a goldfish, god knows what it would be like in the summer. There is a distinct lack of places to hang things, no key hooks , no towel hooks in bathroom, you are encouraged to use the side door into the utility but the door is either warped or badly fitted , no trays to put wet boots or hangers for jackets, no shower caddy, no space/shelving at bathroom sink to hold toiletries, had to store at windowsill, no scissors no torches, had to buy scissors in Tarbert , supposed to be dog friendly but large glass coffee table by lounge window with sharp corners at dog eye height ( and the owner is a vet ) place is surrounded by sheep which is not ideal if you have a dog as the new fence down the right especially has spaces at the bottom where a dog can escape. Supposed to be instructions in a black box on how to use the hob but found none ,had to google it. On reading the house guide it gives the owners application to Harris council to use the property as a rental BUT it clearly states that due to the way water is supplied/stored for use at this property and is susceptible to legionella then the property is NOT to be rented to people who may be vulnerable and the owner has clearly ticked the box to say that he complies with this regulation. So maybe he ( a medical professional ) can explain how my wife who has a suppressed immune system managed to stay here and was potentially put at risk, and why this is not clearly advised on SYKES SITE. So to conclude would I recommend this property Would you like to phone a friend?

    Thank you for your feedback. I am afraid the winter storms on the islands have caused issues with numerous sky satellite dishes. The initial engineer that attend would have been able to address the issue had be been given the opportunity to do so. A second engineer has attended and has resolved the problem and the system is now working as normal. Property Owner

  • "One Sea is an outstanding place to stay."

    Nice modern deco. The view over Scarista beach is stunning. The house is well equipped and spotlessly clean. Feels like home from home . Comfy beds and 3 bathrooms with plenty hot water mean no queues to get ready

  • "On first impressions we were pleased until we found a hole in the bed sheets and stain."

    There were many unclean items in the kitchen that we needed to wash before use and the teabags, kitchen roll & washing up liquid had not been replenished. When we contacted the cleaner she told us to go and buy some and did not want to address it and was very rude. We found the dryer unusable until it was cleaned by us due to lots of sand, fluff & overflowing water tank. The wooden floor leading into the lounge was raised due to damp and therefore we could not close the lounge door. There are no side tables to put a drink on in the lounge, we had to put our drinks on the floor. In all three bathrooms there were no hooks to hang a damp bath towel and no hand towel holder. There was a roll of wires hanging out from the main bedroom wall. Sparkling grape juice left as a welcome pack rather than a bottle of wine! We have stayed in much more luxurious properties at half the price - very disappointed. There is much to address before the property can be described as luxury. Overall a very expensive non luxury stay.

    Thank you for your comments and observations with regard to your stay at One Sea. I am sorry that on this occasion you were dis-satisfied with the accommodation. We have taken you comments on -board and have taken steps to rectify your concerns where appropriate. We always endeavour to present the property in the best possible condition and we take all feedback and comment in a positive way to improve the holiday experience for future guests. Property Owner

The property

Tucked away on the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland is this superb three-bedroom abode, One Sea.

Boasting plenty of living spaces, off-road parking, stunning vistas and dog-friendly accommodation, One Sea welcomes six guests to bask in the ultimate tranquil retreat in Scotland.

Cross the threshold on the ground-floor and instantly be impressed by a spacious kitchen/diner, hosting all the necessary appliances required to have a successful self-catered stay; rustle up a tasty feast as your other half sets the table, ready to settle down and tuck in over a bottle of fizz.

Take advantage of the stunning views from outside your window, or step out onto the private patio to bask in the serenity of your beautiful location before reclining in the homely sitting area in front of the electric fire and Smart TV.

On the lower-ground-floor, discover an inviting snug boasting an additional Smart TV and sofa bed, an idyllic spot for the younger members of your group to savour a movie night together; completing this level is also a sleek shower room so you can beat the queues of a morning.

Ascend back up to the ground-floor to find an immaculately-presented king-size bedroom, as well as another shower room where you can wind down for the day; alternatively, retreat to the first floor to find two additional bedrooms including a super-king-size (zip/link) and a twin, serviced by a fabulous bathroom so you can indulge a soak after a long day.

If you can tear yourself away, spend the day along Sgarasta Mhòr Beach where you can take a scenic stroll along the golden sands or dip your toes in the water during warmer months; close by you can also enjoy a round at The Isle of Harris Golf Club or embark on the Sgarasta Mhor Path from your doorstep, both boasting stunning views of the coast.

Travel to the village of Tarbert by car which is host to a newsagents, supermarket, and the Pierhouse Café and Restaurant where you can stock up on the essentials or grab a bite to eat before continuing with your itinerary.

However you choose to while away the days here on the Isle of Harris, do it from the stunning base of One Sea.
