Great check-in experience100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

I love my house. It is light and airy and decorated to my taste, with my preferred furnishings, ornaments etc. It is usually very quiet in my street. For a small town, Alness has a diverse selection of shops, cafes, restaurants and take-aways. It is also very well placed for getting just about anywhere in the Highlands!
You need to know that this is definitely a no smoking zone!

I had a very pleasant stay at Penelope's. She always does her best to be helpful and make you feel confortable. Plus her lady dog is adorable. The area is very quiet with lot of nice walks to do. Thank you Penelope for everything, you truly deserve to be "superhost" !

Penelope was an outstanding host. I had a great stay. Being a quiet residencial area, good rest is warranted. The lovely dog is very well trained, in case you wonder.

I find writing about myself difficult! Airbnb made some suggestions, so this my attempt to fill in the gaps: 5 things I can't live without? My car. It was off the road for a week recently. Nearly drove me mad! When I travel it is by car to the south of England to visit family. F…
