Home from home for a large family in Aviemore

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable and spotlessly clean well equipped holiday home in a quiet location on the edge of Aviemore. Exactly as discribed. Close to so many great places to go and have fun from archery to kayaking to mountain walking and clay pigeon shooting. My family tried to do most of the things on offer in the area. A great place to come in the summer as we don't do winter sports. It was also an easy drive to Loch Ness and had a great local brewery tour/ generous tasting visit which we could walk to. Hectors house would be an ideal holiday home for any family with a downstairs bedroom and some games and DVDs to suit everyone. The local restaurants were very busy but as a group of 7 we managed to book at the Italian a couple of times. There are Indian Chinese or chip shop take aways quite nearby. Also the local co op was walking distance for groceries. The owners were very prompt and easy to deal with. If you want to visit Aviemore in the summer we would recommend Hector's house.

Hector's House

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable week at Hector's House, which was exactly as described, clean and well maintained. The directions were easy to follow and the owner had provided plenty of information about local amenities and contact details, as well as lots of toys, books, games and DVDs for rainy days. With three small children visits to the Highland Wildlife Park, the Landmark Centre, the Reindeer House, Cyril Squirrel's Funhouse as well as walks around Loch Morlich were very successful. We found the local restaurants welcomed small children and served good food. We would certainly recommend this accommodation to friends.

Beautiful house in peaceful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, modern home tucked away in a peaceful cul-de-sac with ample facilities and space. Liaising with the house owners in organising our long weekend was easy and a pleasure. They were very obliging and even helped us to organise a hot tub and a late check out without any issues!

I would thoroughly recommend Hectors House as a perfect holiday get away, as a welcoming home away from home. Can't wait to get the opportunity to stay there again!

Great house for a family break or longer stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for weekend with family to celebrate my wifes birthday. Hectors House could not have been better. 7 adults in all and we had a very enjoyable and comfortable weekend.

House had lots of space and excellent well equipped kitchen with lots of utensils which allowed us to cook "at home" both nights. House was warm and had bonus of a log fire burner. Very comfy beds for a great nights sleep. We are all already talking about doing it again next year. Would certainly recommend and will book again.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

Great house all you'll need for your stay in Aviemore, toys for the kids, dvds playstation games and more. We've stayed at a lot of houses in Aviemore which haven't been as well kitted out in the kitchen or the utensils have been in poor condition but everything at Hectors house is first class. It's lovely and clean and in a ideal location. Would recommend it to anyone looking stay in Aviemore and will certainly be going back.

Great week at Hectors House

  • 5 of 5

7 adults and 1 small dog (expanded to 9 + 1 for a couple of days) spent a very enjoyable week at Hectors house.

Importantly lots of space, excellent well provisioned kitchen, warm (added bonus of a fire) and piles of hot water. The house is well cared for and the owners go the extra mile to make one welcome. Flowers and shortbreads while not as important as the essentials were still appreciated, thanks.

As noted on a previous review the house is in a quiet residential location 25 mins walk from the centre of Aviemore.

Would recommend to others and certainly book again.
