Customer Reviews of Dunvarlich House, Aberfeldy - Sleeps 10

1st comment: An absolutely wonderful house and the owners are charming, helpful and friendly. Aug 2011. 2nd comment: Simply the best. We could have asked for anything more. Everything was in the house. Furthermore, the house and the area in which it was located were amazingly beautiful. July 2011. 3rd comment: The house was spotlessly clean, warm and welcoming. We were blown away by the fantastic "Arts and Crafts" feeling throughout. There was everything that we could need for a fantastic week - we especially liked the big baskets of toys and the music room. The welcome hamper was great, thank you. A perfect house for a large fairly group holiday. July 2010. 4th comment: The house was very good and well equipped. July 2010. 5th comment: The house and the garden is truly amazing. We were surprised to find old records, books etc. It was very generous to leave all that at the property. There was nothing that we could think of that you did not provide. Loved living there for 2 weeks! July 2009.
