Generous sized house with all the basics in an excellent location but a few annoyances.
As is traditional I'll split this review into good and bad points. First the good. Great location, the owner is helpful and friendly (checked we were OK during power cut). Cottage was a very good size for 2 people with decor in a good traditional condition with modern touches. Cottage was cosy with ample heating; storage heaters are a good idea in an area where power cuts can occur. Wood-burner was a joy. Again useful as a heat back-up, but mainly it looks great and gives the man of the house a chance to poke a fire in a manly manner. View from the windows is second-to-none. Extremely quiet (except for the sound of the ocean) and pitch dark at night; we love this! Star-gazers will be spoilt. Good supply of coal fuel for the fire; so you only need to pay for topping up the kindling. We really appreciated that electricity was included in the price; a cottage like this, especially in the winter, could use a lot of power to heat and for cooking, so it's really nice not to have to constantly shovel coins into a meter as you do in some places. Mary's cottage and the larger surrounding area is a mobile black-spot, which is bliss. Absolutely no chance to update facebook or check emails. Should this be a necessity for you, the Sonachan hotel about a mile away has wifi and we found a mobile signal (on our last day!) at the recycling bins, Kilchoan. Good safety equipment present; fire extinguisher and blanket was provided as well as CO and smoke detectors (but no first-aid box that we noticed). Good useful selection of 'things to do' type leaflets and maps. Of course if you're there off-season much of this will not be running, but I expect most visitor will be visiting in-season (usually April-October). Now the less good... We've written quite a few negatives below, but we are mostly being brutally honest to promote improvements and inform others; overall Marys house is lovely, well-appointed and we had a great stay; just a few niggly things for us; but then again we are seasoned self-catering holiday makers so we tend to be hyper-critical! We also stayed in December, so due to the weather and limited daylight at this time of year we spent much more time in the cottage than most people will; again this perhaps amplified some of the annoyances. The website photography and description is slightly disingenuous implying that the cottage is on its own and isolated. It is however in a small cluster of holiday cottages with the closest only a few metres away. Not a problem for us visiting in low season when we were in the only inhabited cottage, however if we were there in summer and all these cottages were filled with families and dogs and children and cars, the area could, I imagine get quite busy, which is probably not what folk are looking for when holidaying in such a remote spot! There was also a cottage next door being renovated/built, which could've been mentioned; not a deal-breaker and not the owners fault, but again, DIY noises are not ideal when looking for tranquillity. For us, a good bed and shower are amongst the most important aspects of any accommodation. Sadly the bed was over-soft and bouncy leading to poor sleep. This may suit some people- we prefer a firm mattress (but of course this is subjective and our personal preference). Although the bedding smelt clean there were a lot of black (dog?) hairs present which was off-putting. Pillows appeared to be years old and flat- replace! Now, the shower... again this is personal; many folk might not mind, but the shower is of the weak, electric, 'you have to run around furiously to get wet' variety. So a quick refreshing shower is off the agenda. Water pressure from the taps appears to be good, so perhaps a better shower or a pump would help. Not cheap to implement I realise, but a good sleep and a refreshing shower sets you up for the day and leaves a better impression. It's worth bearing in mind that a beach is indeed only a few minutes walk away, but this is a small tidal beach which isn't always present; the main beaches of Sanna bay are a fairly strenuous 30-60 minute walk (fitness level dependant) away across rocky and boggy foreshore. Cleanliness standard was OK but not exceptional. I have personal experience of holiday cottage cleaning and my own standards are higher; I wouldn't leave cleaning streaks over hard surfaces for example; there should be a polishing stage. Also the cooker hood was not pleasant to look at. 30 mins with a wire scourer would remove the layers of grease. Attention to detail was also lacking in other areas such as the black mould at the bottom of shower doors and on the ceiling- use an old toothbrush to clean! Maintenance could be better; starting to think the owner has something against replacing bulbs; no light in the fridge or oven. A broken window catch made for a chilly, breezy kitchen during a storm. I know we were staying out of season and many landlords leave repairs for low season, but if that was the case then the cottage should be taken off the market whilst repairs are carried out; all visitors should receive identical standards whenever they stay. OK, phoning... Absolutely no mobile signal, which is great and NOT a negative for us, however we were rather mystified by the list of phone numbers in the kitchen, when there isn't any land-line or payphone provided! This could actually be quite a worry if you had an emergency; in our opinion there should always be a land-line or payphone in a holiday cottage. There is a phone-box (no coins accepted) a few minutes run away or you could run to the owners cottage across the field, but again, if you cut yourself badly or had a fall or heart-attack, it's not ideal. We didn't notice a first-aid box; bring your own, but fire extinguisher and blanket was provided as well as CO and smoke detectors. We also suggest that you bring extra towels. Only one bath and hand towel is provided per person for a week. This is fairly standard in places we've stayed, but, I feel, unnecessarily stingy! There is however a good quality washing machine in the kitchen if you want to do a mid-week wash.

lovely location cottage bit of a letdown
views stunning but cottage could do with a makeover a bit shabby.Oven didnt work, dvd didnt work . Stove small and awkward and noisy.Tiny tv and pet hate noisy waterproof mattress cover which had to be removed in order to get some sleep.nearest shop in kilchoan is closed on a sunday and not that well stocked. The furniture was dated and lots of drawers didnt work properly,the dining chairs were very rickety .good size for 2 people wouldnt recommend for more. not the comfortable cosy cottage we imagined. cut holiday short due to the disapointment and were glad to get home. also photograph from outside done cleverly and does not show caravan and house to left and other 2 houses on right so although it is detatched it is within close proximity and might be quite tricky getting up and down single track lane to property in the summer months.

A fairy tale location
Staying at Marys House was a truly unique experience that we will remember for many years. I never realised that such remote locations existed in our crowded country anymore and with the sea and beautiful sandy beach within a stone throw from the house, you simply could not envisage a more tranquil picture postcard spot. Marys House is well furnished, clean and has everything you need for your visit and is ideally situated for a relaxing/walking holiday while the tiny village of Kilchoan, which is about 4 miles away has a good pub and well stocked shop. The village is so remote it really is like stepping back in to the 1950,s and if you need petrol, someone from the village shop even comes along to operate the pump for you. The ferry to the island of Mull also leaves from Kilchoan, were you can visit the now famous town of Tobermory, which is better known as Balamory in the childrens TV series and believe me it really is worth a visit. The nearby lighthouse is also a good attraction as is the fabulous beach at Sanna Bay, a few miles away. The only downside is the road that takes you to Kilchoan. For 20 miles it is a single track road with passing points scattered along the way to allow oncoming traffic to pass and it is an arduous drive. The road from Kilchoan to Marys House is also little more than a track and seems to go on forever, but dont let this put you off. It guarantees the remoteness of the place and many of the villagers prefer it to stay like that, although for those who have to commute to work, it must be a nightmare.

stunning place to stay, views are fantastic in a superb cottage. if you like somewhere to totally relax with no Wi-Fi or mobile then this is the place to wind down. the cottage is clean warm and easy to maintain. all I can say is give it a chance but not if you don't like to be isolated and don't like the country or walking. if you do portuarik is wonderful
