A well appointed traditional felt roof house situated in a quiet location at the end of a single track road.
Our pretty, traditional, black house/beach house "Port-na-criche" (pronounced Port-Na-Cree), which we have recently acquired after dreaming of having a house beside the sea for 17 years, had been in the same family for 200 years. We have been visiting Tiree for 20 years and hope you will enjoy this house's fantastic, quiet and exclusive location.
The tariff for the house is approx. £100 (2020) per night - minimum stay of 3 nights.
I'M NOT TAKING BOOKINGS ON AIRBNB THIS YEAR AS I'M PLANNING SOME RENOVATIONS AND THEREFORE I ONLY HAVE LIMITED AVAILABILITY THIS YEAR - SEND ME AN ENQUIRY VIA EMAIL (firstname.lastname@example.org) TO CHECK AVAILABILITY.
PLEASE NOTE: I'M CURRENTLY UNABLE TO RECRUIT A HOUSEKEEPER TO DO THE CHANGEOVERS FOR THIS SEASON AND THEREFORE WILL REQUIRE YOU TO BRING YOUR OWN TOWELS AND BED LINEN AND CLEAN THE HOUSE AT THE END OF YOUR STAY (LEAVING IT AS YOU FIND IT). IF THIS IS OKAY, PLEASE GET IN TOUCH.
As a holiday home owner we want to support the local community on Tiree and 5% of your booking cost will be donated by us to the Tiree Community Windfall fund. This house has BT Unlimited Fibre BB which is a real bonus as BB can be patchy on Tiree. Whilst this house will appeal to families with one dog at a max. please, it will also be a suitable retreat for couples. It is the perfect size - not too big, not too small. Cosy in all the right places. Birdwatchers, wild-life enthusiasts, Northern Lights seekers, Star-gazers are all welcome! Be aware that your mobile reception may be limited though luckily we can get 4G because of the proximity to Coll. If you have Vodaphone and EE you're fine, otherwise you may need to buy a pay-as-you-go SIM card for your visit. We have BT Infinity Fibre BB. We have a smart TV which allows you to stream digital channels. Great for when the weather is passing over our island. When the weather is good (Tiree has a great reputation for being sunny) and you are taking a break from watersports (if that's your thing) you can sit in the pretty front garden and enjoy looking at the wild-life pottering about the beach. Or you may be lucky and see Basking Sharks in the bay!

DIRECTIONS TO THE HOUSE
I will provide your instructions upon booking although if you look at google maps you will see it is at the end of the track as you look out towards the outer hebrides from Balephetrish Bay. The track in front of the property is a no through road which means you will be driving past the nearby farm house. It is a right-hand turn off the B8068 as you drive west and past the turn to Kenovay.
OUTSIDE SPACE AND PARKING
It is right beside Balephetrish Bay and 5 minutes walk along the track to the main beach area. There is space for two medium-sized cars to the side of the house, beside the garden.
Please respect our neighbours and the livestock and if you have a dog you must keep it on a lead if you are anywhere near the livestock. Please ensure you remove any dog mess from the area and the beach and ensure you take any litter with you and place in the bin which is marked “Port-na-criche” and is a couple of hundred yards away outside the White House.
