Imagine drinking wine on the decking watching the sun set over the sea. Stroll down the deserted beach and see how the inquisitive seals follow you, dipping and diving beneath the waves. Feel the peace and tranquility work it's calming magic on you.

House Rules

Smoking is not allowed in the house but we have a lovely decking area which overlooks the bay where you are more than welcome to smoke.
You are more than welcome to return to your room or use the facilities during the day. We are easy going but like a tidy house so would expect guests to leave a room as they found it. As we are on an island we would appreciate it if guests could conserve water as much as possible and we will only change bedding and towels when asked to. BYOB is allowed with no corkage charge. We enjoy a glass or two (or three!!) of wine or whiskey!!
Normal check-in time: 3pm - 7pm
Normal check-out time: 10am
We are flexible as you will be dependant on ferry times and you are more than welcome to use our lounge after check-out should you be waiting for a ferry.
I can also provide free and secure storage of your luggage for your convenience.

Jo and Jeff have a wonderful home next to a wonderful beach. They are exceptionally hospitable and can't do enough for you. We would definitely stay there again and strongly recommend it as a place to stay on Sanday, Kev and Debs.

Johanna and Jeff are excellent hosts and made us feel at home during our stay! They are great company and went out of their way to make us feel welcome, even driving us around the island. Highly recommended and hope to return!

I felt welcome the moment I arrived. Jo and Jeff are both warm and friendly and generously invited me to join them for an evening with their friends which was great. Their home is clean and tidy and in a great position to explore the island which itself is a great place. I would …

Jo and Jeff, could not be kinder. Honest hard working and so helpful, they arrange my collection from the ferry, and a hire bike for my stay....wear padded trousers, as the seats on the bikes are racing seats!! You are greeted like friends and leave feeling like part of the famil…

Hi, my name is Johanna or Jo for short. Five years ago Jeff, my husband, and I decided to start over and moved to Orkney all the way from Devon. Quite a move!! Miss my family and friends but actually talk more to them now than I ever did when I was close by. I love living here…
