About The Owner

My husband and I live in Florida but I am from Scotland. We both love Scotland and purchased the flat so that we could have a place of our own when we visit family. We intend to spend a lot of time there after retirement.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2007

Why The Owner chose St Andrews & North Fife

We chose Anstruther because it is a very popular holiday destination that is not too far from my family. The area is very charming and beautiful and offers many amenities.

What makes this apartment unique

We really enjoy the coastal walk that connects the fishing villages and the top notch seafood restaurants and pubs in the area. We like being close to St. Andrews - my husband enjoys all the great golf courses within easy driving distance as well as the fun 9-hole course in Anstruther. Being close to St. Andrews and only an hour to Edinburgh is also a big plus. I also have to say the water and harbor views from the flat are wonderful.

Perfect holiday setting in Anstruther

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week in the flat on the harbour in Anstruther. It is very well situated, and beautifully decorated.....and we appreciated how responsive the owner was to our queries. We often walked to the nearby supermarket for shopping, and enjoyed the restaurants and coffee shops that were very close by. We highly recommend this as a holiday spot, and hope to return very soon!

Lovely, convenient and very economical apartment

  • 4 of 5
We were in Fife for a golf holiday in September and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Anstruther. The apartment is immaculately clean, large and very comfortable, with a wonderful view of the harbour. It is close to all amenities, and a great central base from which to explore and golf in the region. A terrific price point as well, especially compared with properties in St. Andrews (a mere 20 minutes away). You do need a car, but parking on the side streets is readily available. We had a terrific dinner at the nearby restaurant "The Cellar" (a three minute walk). Sheena was always very prompt in her replies to my queries, and her instructions were thorough and clear. No hesitation in recommending this property.

This was our second stay at the flat in Anstruther, and we were glad we went back as it was as nice as we remembered. The flat is a lot bigger than it would seem from the exterior and has two good size bedrooms, large lounge and kitchen diner. It has everything you need to make your stay really comfortable, and there are also some really nice personal touches to make the stay stand out from your average rental for example, the owner leaves a welcome bottle of wine for each visitor. The flat is very clean inside and it is perfectly located for exploring both Anstruther and the wider east neuk - there are various takeaways and restaurants on your doorstep or you are only a short drive away from St Andrews and the other villages nearby. We would definitely recommend and will be staying there again.

Spacious flat in excellent location with lovely view

  • 5 of 5
It was very convenient to be able to book this flat on a per night basis. It would be equally enjoyable to take it on a weekly basis, which is much more common for self-catering arrangements. The flat itself and the location were ideal for a seaside get-away and I would stay there again if I was returning to the East Neuk of Fife for a holiday.

Excellent location, super clean, views of the harbor across the street, charming locals, best golf in the world! Fantastic owner who provided us with great information on courses, restaurants, and "must see" places. If you stay here, you'll surely have a memorable vacation. We can't wait to do it all again!

Returning to Uni

  • 5 of 5
Property perfect for all the family - three generations from our family were on this trip! Very comfortable base for exploring the Firth of Fife area. Clean, fully equipt, with beautiful views to sit back and gaze at after a day's exploring. Perfect position in pretty little village with everything you need within walking distance. Was especially ready for the complimentary bottle of wine after our 5 hour trip!
