Nairn Beach gorgeous view

Dolphin View Cottage is open for bookings.

We have reviewed our cleaning procedures in line with all Government directives as well as our own strict policy, so you can be assured of a safe and clean environment in which to enjoy your holiday, whilst also safeguarding our cleaning staff.

So lets get back to normal and enjoy a few days in the sunshine by the sea.

Dolphin View Cottage is a perfect little seaside family holiday home, modest and comfortable with amazing views across the Moray Firth. Our family has enjoyed children’s seaside holidays in Nairn for many years and we are happy to share our holiday home with you.

Situated in the historic Fishertown area of Nairn, not a traditional fisherman’s cottage, it’s more modern than that. Built around 25 years ago on the site of the old fishing boat yards by Nairn harbour and just a stones throw from both the harbour, the river, the links and the beach.

If you like falling asleep to the sound of the waves lapping or crashing on the shore, then you’d be in the right place.

We have three bedrooms and a small family bathroom with walk-in shower upstairs.

Downstairs is the living room, dining room, kitchen and separate loo.

You’ll have the best nights sleep on our brand new, and super comfortable mattresses on all the beds.

The king size bed has a “Sleeping Duck” mattress (medium) which once tried you’ll want one of your own.

There is a TV & PS3 in the bunk room upstairs, plus 2 bikes, skate board, sledges, golf clubs and other toys in the shed for your use. There is a wooden bench in the front garden where you can sit and watch the children at play on the links or just enjoy watching the sun set and the many people walking their dogs and taking in the sea air along the ‘top path’ as we like to call it.

There is also a folding table and picnic chairs for your use – we can’t provide a permanent table/chair arrangement or they’d be blown away in the winter!

We have all mod cons in our house: hot and cold running water, central heating, double glazing, two loos, an electric power shower, washing machine (no dryer but a couple of clothes horses which will dry most stuff overnight), and if you bring your children you’ll have your own dishwashers too.

We provide you with quality fluffy towels, bedlinen and pillows. Most amenities to at least get you going and one of the best views in Nairn.

Travel cot and high chair provided (bring your own cot bedlinen).

Throughout the 2020 season we were forced to close our doors along with all other Self Catering accommodation in Scotland. We contacted all our existing booked guests, cancelled and gave everyone a full refund.
None of our guests lost out due to the pandemic, we however bore the brunt.

We would like to thank all those guests who, now that we have regained some freedom, have taken the opportunity for a holiday in Nairn and booked our cottage within the next few months and into next year.

We are all in the same boat here and we have no more ability to predict the future than you.
For all future bookings we will share the risk with you, and now revert back to our usual moderate cancellation policy.

We do allow the occasional ‘well behaved’ dog (no one ever admits to having a badly behaved dog!).
In order to keep the house in good clean order for those who don’t own pets, the following rules must be agreed and adhered to by owners and their dogs:

– Please bring your own pet bed.
– No pets allowed on any furniture at any time, including chairs, sofa or beds.
– No dogs allowed upstairs whatsoever.
– All dog poo must go into the bins on the links and not into our bins or in our garden.
– Dogs should not be left alone in the house at any time.
– Please clean up 100% of any pet hair and pet smell before you go as this is not on my cleaner’s scope of work.
– Any trace of pets on departure may result in some or all of your bond being used to pay my cleaners to remove traces.

Private house, fully enclosed garden both front and back. Private parking, bikes and toys, (WiFi), Playstation3, 2 TVs, Nespresso coffee machine.

This is a private property, with neighbours who live here. We very much like our neighbours and would like it to stay that way, so please treat them with respect.

Cleaning between guests is provided at the end of each stay and is included in the cost of your booking. You can expect freshly laundered bedlinen and towels when you arrive.

For guests who wish to stay a little longer we are happy to provide you with a cleaning and/or laundry service if you wish with the cost agreed between us.

The main bathroom is upstairs.
There is a stair gate at the top of the stairs only.
There is a washing machine but no dryer and no dishwasher.

Guest information is collected via a secure online check-in. We will always ask for a copy of your ID (drivers licence or passport) before you check-in and we may also ask for the security bond to be held by us.
Airbnb does not actually take the security bond themselves.
