Harbour Villa

Had a lovely time in Shetland and Harbour Villa. Made it to one of the islands in the north (Yell) and all the way down south to Sumburgh Lighthouse (great café). The accommodation was first class and beds really comfortable. Would definitely recommend both a holiday in Shetland and a stay here.

Excellent base for our first holiday in a long while! Shetland is an amazing place with so much to do and Harbour Villa was the perfect place to return to in the evening. Thanks for all the games and little extras provided which made our stay even more enjoyable.

Super place to stay during our 3rd trip to Shetland. Really comfortable and very quiet area. The kids loved pottering at Bains Beach just down the road which meant much needed peace for the ‘oldies’. Loved the fire! Thank you.

It was great staying here. The islands were great! Ponies and puffins were adorable. Bains beach (short stroll from the house) was great for sea glass - we found some red bits (the rarest).

What a fantastic cottage, six of us and two children. Everything we needed and a real home from home with exceptional views. The toddlers loved watching the boats from the window. Excellent communication both before and during the holiday. Weather was great too. Would recommend to friends and hope to be back again soon. So much to see and do - far too much for two weeks. Thank You.
