3 Things to Consider Before Buying a Luxury Apartment in Johannesburg Gauteng
After months of anticipation, the Dunalastair Hotel Suites in Loch Rannoch has finally announced plans for their grand reopening.
Nestled snugly against the banks of Scotland’s River Tummel sits a quiet, unassuming village known as Kinloch Rannoch. Resplendent in its own air of tranquility, and surrounded at all sides by truly enchanting views of the remote Scottish Highlands, the area has long been favoured as a destination for those seeking serenity, relaxation, and a certain sense of calm.
Yet over the past few months, there’s been a disturbance in this usually peaceful village, a hive of activity as a veritable army of designers, decorators and tradesmen headed en masse to the Dunalastair Hotel Suites in the heart of Kinloch Rannoch..
Not that any of the local residents seemed to mind this sudden breach of the peace. For them, the arrival of the workmen actually signalled good news.
Multi-Million Pound Refurbishment
After all, that small army of professionals were not heading there for a conference, nor even for a much needed Scottish getaway and the chance to trade paintbrushes and screwdrivers for hiking boots, golf clubs, and fishing rods. Rather, they were there to carry out work on a multi-million pound refurbishment project, transforming the historic venue into the ultimate luxury Scottish Hotel.
As part of the remodelling work, the Dunalastair’s trademark Victorian features -a staple of the hotel’s architecture since it was first built- have been lovingly restored, blending in seamlessly with a new, contemporary design and state-of-the-art modern amenities.
The boutique hotel suites have been lovingly decorated in gentle, relaxing tones to match the tranquil ambiance which surrounds Loch Rannoch. A cutting edge eConcierge system has been put in place to offer an added level of convenience to hotel guests, and the whole venue has been upgraded to create a luxury Scottish hotel which caters to the needs of modern guests, all whilst retaining that timeless style that makes the Dunalastair unique.
Dunalastair Hotel Suites — Romantic Scottish Hotel Reopening May 2017
That refurbishment, according to the team behind the new-look Dunalastair Hotel Suites, has finally been completed, meaning the team can now start looking ahead to their grand reopening on May 1st, 2017.
At time of writing, the Dunalastair team were putting the final finishing touches to their boutique accommodation, channelling all their efforts into establishing their hotel as a top choice for romantic Scottish getaways.
Soft, inviting beds adorned in the finest Egyptian cotton, hotel suites arranged to take advantage of the breathtaking Highland views, room service provided by their own in-house cafe/restaurant, no expense has been spared when it comes to achieving the Dunalastair Hotel Suites’ goal of making their boutique accommodation a must visit for couples who want nothing more than to escape for a few days of quality alone time.
A Multi-Purpose Luxury Hotel for All Scottish Holidays
Whilst they may be going all out to offer an idyllic haven for anyone looking to escape to the highlands for a few days, the Dunalastair Hotel Suites are eager to note that they offer much more than romantic Scottish breaks.
Taking advantage of their prime location in the heart of Perthshire, with its abundance of walking and cycling trails, golf courses, climbing centres, and fishing spots, the Loch Rannoch hotel are also pitching themselves as an ideal place to stay for those booking Scotland activity breaks and family holidays.
Several of their boutique suites have been re-designed especially to accommodate families and groups, a bicycle hire service has been established, and the brand’s eConcierge directory has been updated with details on a plethora of activities taking place throughout the Perthshire Highlands.
Now Available for Bookings
At time of writing, the last of the designers, decorators and tradesmen were making their way out of Loch Rannoch, casting one last long, proud look over the refurbished hotel that has been such a big part of their life for the better part of the past twelve months. Peace, serenity, and tranquility has returned to Loch Rannoch, and will remain so, even when lovestruck couples and adventurous families alike descend on the reopened Dunalastair Hotel Suites come May 1st.
For now though, the hotel team are focussed on adding those all important finishing touches, and relaunching their website, where couples, families, groups and solo travellers can now reserve their luxury boutique accommodation in time for 2017.

Luxury Properties For Sale
Despite the hype that surrounds the idea of holding an open house, Boca Raton houses for sale are vastly underrepresented in that particular area.
According to the MLS, within the next seven days there are 23 open houses scheduled in Boca Raton. That’s out of 2,709 current properties for sale.
That means fewer than 1% of homes for sale hold themselves open. So for prospective sellers of homes in Boca– or anywhere else — who are wondering if holding an open house is a vital part of the sales process, the answer appears to be a resounding, “Probably not.”
Open houses used to be an important sales tool
Once upon a time in the land of real estate, open houses were considered an essential selling tool. People came from miles around to visit homes for sale because there was no other way to see what was inside.
The listing broker and the mortgage broker used the occasion to meet people and add to their customer lists. And sometimes they were even able to sell the house to one of those visitors.
Today, however, the Internet has obviated the need for open houses. Why drive 30 miles to visit a property that you can look at while sitting around in your underwear at home?
Nonetheless, if you are planning to run an open house — or if you’re just planning to sell your home — here are 8 suggestions that will improve the open house experience of those who attend. They’ll also help your Boca Raton real estate agent to acquire some additional customers.
Clean up your kitchen.
As we all know, the kitchen is the showplace of a home. It’s the first and last place buyers look. But they don’t just look at the kitchen. They look in the kitchen. Everywhere. Cabinets, drawers, oven, and even in the refrigerator.
Remember, they will be buying those appliances, as well as the cabinets, sinks, and counter tops.
So make sure all of these places look (and smell) as clean as is humanly possible. A gross kitchen is a huge turn-off.
Clean up your bathrooms
You have to clean the sinks and the showers and the bathtubs and the toilets. You also need to vacuum up the stray hairs on the floor that we all leave behind.
Sure you’re only human, but not when you’re trying to sell your home. That’s when you’re forced to become a lean, mean, cleaning machine.
So remove your bath towels and put out fresh hand towels every day. First, because the appearance of clean, fluffy towels is more appealing. And second, because many of the people coming through your house will use your bathrooms. Unless you want to use the same towels they do, change them each day.
Clean out your medicine cabinets.
Doesn’t anyone respect privacy anymore? No, especially not when your house is for sale. So take anything that is private out of your medicine cabinets and your bathroom drawers. Your medical information is displayed on our prescriptions and identity theft is an unfortunate fact of life today. Don’t make it easy for someone to make your life much harder. Put your medications away somewhere safe.
Remove any valuables
You may keep your jewelry in the dresser so that it’s handy for your own use. But you don’t want it handy for the occasional light-fingered visitor who may see your open house as an opportunity to enhance their own collection.
Similarly, if you have collectibles that are small and valuable financially, or just important to you, remove them and place them somewhere relatively inaccessible and out of sight.
Take your pets for a walk
Leaving your pets in the house is a huge no-no. Many people are not pet lovers, so they will not appreciate the fact that your pooch is just being friendly.
Also, even though you may not notice it, pets leave their own odors behind. It’s a fact of pet life. You are inured to them because you live in the house.
People who don’t live in your house and who do not have pets — but do have noses — will notice those aromas. Clean up around your pet areas and spray around the house and use common sense to minimize pet scents.
Don’t leave your pet in the crate
Some animal lovers may feel this is cruel. Non-pet owners may feel the same way. Even if they don’t, the barking may unnerve them. Don’t take a chance on creating any kind of negative feelings during a potential buyer’s visit to your home.
Ask a friend to do a white glove test.
And a sniff test. If cleaning the house has not been your strong suit previously, it won’t be when it’s time to show off your home.
If you’re not sure, bring in a couple of friends and ask them to give you an opinion. If they say the place looks great, give yourself a round of applause and know you’ve done a good job.
If they say something like, “Well, it’s not so bad…” then hire a cleaning service. It’s worth the small cost to get your home sold.
Clean up the outside.
The old cliché about judging a book by its cover applies to the curb appeal of your home. If potential buyers don’t find the appearance of the front of your house inviting, they are likely to turn around before they get to the front door.
