House for rent
A calendar showing current availability can be found on the Isle of Tiree website.
‘Skerry View’ is an extended four bedroom croft house based in Balinoe, adjacent to Balinoe Campsite. The house enjoys views over the crofting landscape towards Skerryvore lighthouse on the west coast and towards the Treshinish islands off the east coast of Tiree. Skerry View has all of its own facilities and private gardens, but also benefits from access to all of the campsite facilities. The house is centrally located to the popular beaches for watersport enthusiast’s.
Additionally the shared campsite facilities next door offer additional showers, toilets, exterior water taps with hoses for washing down watersport’s gear and a large barn for storage of bikes and watersports equipment.
Skerry View offers two double bedrooms, a twin bedroom room and a bunk bedroom. Additionally it has two reception rooms, a living room, one main bathroom (shower only) and a large kitchen.
Skerry View is situated almost half a mile from the main road along a private gravel track that is easily accessible. There is ample parking for up to three cars and room for more, if required. The house is set amidst crofting ground. Traffic accordingly is no issue for pets or young children and while the land is freely available for walking under the outdoor access code, we would ask you to respect that the grass in surrounding fields is largely grown and cropped from the beginning of May until the end of August. It is not good policy to walk in the cropped areas during these times.
The house kitchen has the following equipment:
Four ring electric cooker with main oven and top oven with electric grill, Microwave, Kettle, Toaster, Fridge, Freezer, Washing Machine, Condenser Dryer, Slow Cooker.
The heating is in the house is via storage heaters and panel heaters. There is a double ended multi-fuel stove shared between the living room and the dining room and fuel and kindling is provided.
Hot water is provided by an electric imersion tank.
Entertainments include a tv in the living room with a dvd player and Sky tv (freeview card provided), a tv in the downstairs double bedroom with Sky tv (freeview card provided) and a cd player.
The house has a phone line connection that allows for calls to be made and received but we would prefer that you do not use this as your primary form of communication and more as a backup for emergencies. There is unlimited WIFI broadband in the house available in the dining room and kitchen area.
For security you will be given a full set of keys for ‘necessary’ doors and windows on arrival and an additional master set is retained at all times by us.
Rubbish is uplifted by the Local council from the end of the access track to the house every Tuesday. Further and more detailed information is available in the house with regard to waste disposal.
