Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
A cosy stone built cottage, circa 1800, in a superb location on the outskirts of Lerwick. Gorgeous sea view, with the Sands of Sound beach just down the road and great access to coastal walks. Easy walking distance to Tesco and the Clickimin Leisure Complex, with Lerwick town centre only 1.25 miles away.
There's a well equipped kitchen with a pully for drying clothes and also a good size living room.
Mavine Cottage is a great base from which to explore all Shetland has to offer.

The space
The cottage, (NEW to the holiday let market in July 2017) which would originally have been a 'but and ben' has been extended during its lifetime with a kitchen at one end and a second bedroom and bathroom on the front. There is a small shed just outside the back door, which is large enough to store bikes or other outdoor equipment.
The cottage is heated via the Lerwick District Heating scheme which is a locally efficient way of heating your home and provides a constant source of hot water.

Guest access
Guests have access to the entire property which includes a small, sheltered garden with a clothes line.

Other things to note
The full correct address and post code can be found in ‘directions’ as Airbnb location will not accept it!

The cottage, as advertised sleeps 3, however it is possible for us to provide a camp bed if desired. There is enough space to have this set up in the living room or in one of the bedrooms, whatever guests would prefer.
Guests should also note that although we don't have a travel cot there is enough room in either of the bedrooms to set one up.
There is no extra charge for extra people, although we'd recommend a maximum of 2 (extra) for a comfortable stay!

Location

Lerwick, Shetland, United Kingdom

The cottage really is in a great spot in Shetland's capital with its close proximity to the sea. The fields in front of the cottage are 'green belt' and are used mainly for grazing horses and ponies so It feels secluded, but at the same time is so handy for shops, eateries, Shetland Museum and Archives and Mareel (cinema and music venue). The beautiful historic Picts Castle which sits in the loch at Clickimin is also a very close 5-10 minute walk away.
