You can book an ‘overwater bungalow’ in the UK – and it’s cheaper than Maldives

For couples that want an extra special getaway for their staycation this year need to look no further than this 'overwater bungalow'.

Having being stuck in the same room for nearly a year tends to kill the romance, so this quirky, detached house on magical Waternish would be perfect for a weekend getaway to de-stress and get back to nature.

The full-height windows of the overwater home offer an unrivalled view of the sea as you gaze across the small islands to the Outer Hebrides. The deck gives guests a great view of the sunset along the horizon as magnificent sea eagles soar past.

Aside from cosying up indoors, Waternish, Scotland, offers a variety of fun activities. The area offers amazing local food and drink, along with beautiful local art galleries.

At night, there are some of the best stargazing spots in the UK that you can visit from here, as the pollution-less atmosphere offers city travellers a rare look at a truly starry sky.

As for the house itself, every room, except for the bathroom, offers a magnificent look at the sea, unobstructed by cars or buildings.

One note that seems to draw guests is that this house is larger than it seems on the outside. All the rooms are extremely spacious, which makes the bungalow ideal for longer holidays.

The house is full of local art, plants & Ercol furniture, and it even has a log burner, which may not as useful now, but it definitely something to keep in mind for colder months.

The Airbnb has a stunning five-star review, as nearly everyone who visits, leaves feeling completely satisfied. As for the hosts, David and Jayne, they are rated as 'superhosts' after many guests praised their amazing support during their stay.

"David and Jayne’s place is an amazing place to stay. It is beautifully decorated, modern and clean with everything you need." One reviewer said.

"The view is absolutely incredible – you can easily spend the day just on the deck outside enjoying it.

"The fire is super nice and cosy in the evening. Probably one of the nicest places I’ve ever stayed – it really made our stay on Skye unforgettable."

Another said, "Our experience at David and Jayne's place was outstanding. The house is beautiful and the view is just stunning, everything was spotlessly clean as well.

"We felt very safe here in current uncertain times and we received quick responses to our questions. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again."

A third visitor had a wonderful time and even spotted some sheep. "The house was spacious with everything needed to cook a meal and was decorated nicely," she said.

"We enjoyed looking out the large windows to view the amazing scenery and sometimes there were sheep grazing on the other side of the fence.

"The fireplace was nice to use on cold, wet, and windy days in Skye and the bottle of wine and shortbread cookies were much appreciated."
