Next time I visit Lewis, there's only one place I want to stay - Kabuis. The owners couldn't have been more thoughtful;absolutely everything you need is there. Even arriving on the late ferry, I was met by Rhoda with homemade cake and tea. A large bowl of fresh fruit was a lovely touch as well as the gorgeous fresh flowers. The chalet is fully equipped and roomy enough for 4 adults yet a solo traveller won't find it too big. Its location is brilliant- not too far from Stornoway, just off the main road and spot on for touring. There's a local beach within about 20 mins walk on quiet lanes which was perfect for my dog to race around on. For a single woman it was perfect, as it isn't isolated and the owners are at hand, but not obtrusive. I cannot imagine finding anywhere better - and I've stayed in some nice properties on the islands. Finally, it's excellent value for money.

Owner's reply: It was great to read your review and better still to know that despite several visits to Lewis, that that Chalet for you has come up tops. You will be welcomed back to Shawbost any time of the year. Sincere thanks Rhoda & Neil

“Lovely stay, we will be back!”

Reviewed 7 Sep 2014

Loved the chalet and Lewis. Rhoda and Neil were great hosts, made us feel at home right away. Weather was great, a mix of everything except snow! Lots of things to see. We have already booked a return in April!

“You won't be disappointed”

Reviewed 9 Oct 2013

Rhoda & Neil have pulled out all the stops to make this as comfortable as you would possibly wish for and everything you would ever need is in the chalet they were both extremely friendly and would do there utmost to help in any way possible. The chalet is also situated in an excellent location in the centre of the east coast of Lewis, we were able to make it down to the bottom of Harris and took in lots of sights in the space of one day. So if your having a dilemma picking a holiday destination I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kabuis chalet

“A home from home without the hustle bustle”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2013

We had a fantastic trip to Lewis with our two small children and were welcomed to Kabuis holiday Chalet by the lovely owners Rhoda and Neil who made us feel very welcome and spoiled us with home baking, fruit, flowers and some fresh salmon. The Chalet is a real home from home it is comfortable, welcoming with luxury bedding and towels and all the kitchen equipment you could imagine, it even has a washing machine (a bonus going home with no laundry!) We were blessed with great weather towards the end of our week, and could have been on a Caribbean island. I would thoroughly recommend this wee treasure of a chalet to anyone thinking of traveling to Lewis. My only regret is we didn't stay longer! Thanks too for returning the few small things we left behind

“Wonderful location and welcome”

Reviewed 21 Apr 2013

We received a wonderful welcome, with treats ready in the fridge. The location was excellent for our needs and Rhoda and Neil we welcoming and always ready to help. Would have not the slightest hesitation in returning or in recommending them to others.

Owner's reply: Sincere thanks and we know you will be back, will look forward to your return. Lots of love Rhoda & Neil

“Good chalet & value for money”

Reviewed 19 Apr 2013

Generous&hospitable owners who made sure my stay was comforable & that I had all I needed. Inside Kabuis is well-appointed, clean and well-maintained, and for 395 pounds for the week I really couldn't have asked for better value. the chalet being more isolated would've been my preference, but the property ticked many boxes for me including wooden floorboards & not far from a scenic (small) patch of beach.

Owner's reply: Blair arrived here, no car, after all he was visiting fom Australia, why come to the West Side of Lewis without a car, he did not drive, so he may have been best staying in Stornoway in a B & B, however this is what he chose.I went to the effort of taking him all around the scenic routes, Dalbeg Beach, Dalmore Beach, Black House Village, Broch at Dun Carloway, the village of Tolsta Chaolais, Invited him for lunch at Callanish Standing Stones, a walk around the Stones and then to Stornoway. He could never have done all this in one week by bus. I certainly went out of my way for Blair to enjoy Lewis Scenes and hospitality. I may add all at my expense, so just to get a good on Trip Advisor was not that great for us. The rest is great and that is not us going out of our way.

Owner's reply: Our sincere thanks to you all for leaving the Chalet in pristine condition and pleased to note that you will be making a return visit. It was a pleasure to have dealt with you.

“Our brilliant time on Lewis”

Reviewed 14 Apr 2013

We were warmly welcomed to our accommodation by Rhoda with cakes and tea!! Brilliant. The accommodation was warm, comfortable and homely. When we booked with Rhoda the internet web page advertised the accom for 4 persons only; however, we asked Rhoda if she would accept a family of 5 (we have 3 small children) to which she replied yes and at no extra charge!!! We brought the air bed and she provided the linen. Everything about the Chalet was great, no expense spared on the furnishings. The Chalet is approximately a quarter of a mile from the shore which is absolulety gorgeous. We had many pleasant evening walks on the coast line, climbed the highest mountain on Lewis (Clisham), visited the Black House museum, visited the 'Butt of Lewis' which had a tremendous play park for the children, had fish and chips in Stornoway, this all was made brilliant by the fantastic weather we had. We left Lewis after having a tremendous time on the island and at Rhoda's Chalet. The biggest impression of all was the peace that we all experienced, the hustle and bustle of life was left far behind on the mainland. What a brilliant time we had at Rhoda's place and we will not forget the Salmon and fresh Cod which she provided!

Owner's reply: It was a pleasure to have hosted this lovely young couple with 3 delightful friendly girls.
