19. Spacious double room with own access and bathroom (from USD 51)

Some vacation rentals are best suited for one or two people who only need a certain amount of space and a quiet area to stay in. If that’s what you’re looking for, then we recommend this home’s double room for two. Tea and coffee are available in the house so that you can start the day with the energy needed for a fun time, and visitors will have their own entrance at the back of the property. Portree Village is only a 10-minute walk away, which lets you get a little exercise before you enjoy the best that the town’s restaurants and bars have to offer.
