Great time, lovely long weekend away - nice & relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for 3 nights (4 adults, 2 toddlers) in September, and had a great time, the layout worked well for us, especially in terms of having a double room & single/twin room on each floor, so that we could sleep on the same floor as our children. Parking for 2 cars off street, was a big positive for us, really handy, as we were out exploring each day, and toddlers don't travel light! :)

The downstairs living space is fab, plenty of room for the 6 of us, lots of storage in the kitchen for supplies, and we were able to make use of the garden, as the Scottish weather was kind to us.

St Monan's is beautiful, we walked down to the coast/beach, which was just a short walk from the house, great wee shop selling fresh seafood etc at the harbour front. Elie, Anstruther, St Andrews to name a few are close by, you're never too far away from something to do, local amenities etc. Its a beautiful part of the country.

Maia (the owner) was very helpful, great communications, and flexible to our requests, I would definitely recommend. Maia also caters well for her guests, providing basic supplies & more!

Excellent home from home

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, spacious home with plenty of living space for large families or groups of friends. The house has everything you need: salt and pepper, corkscrew, plastic picnicware and buckets and spades! We were blesssed with beautiful weather all week but if the weather had forced us inside more, we would have been very comfortable. Owner very helpful and very friendly village. We would not hesitate to stay again.

Lovely big house, but still room for improvement.

  • 3 of 5

Overall we felt that this house just wasnt quite finished being renovated. What rooms have been done are lovely (living room, double bedrooms) but there is still some unfinished work in quite a few rooms. Minor work, but work none the less, and should maybe of been mentioned on booking. However, saying that it did not detract from our holiday there, and the house is very comfortable. St Monans is a lovely wee town. Great places to visit all within easy reach. Very easy access to the Fife Coastal path too.

Owner's Response: I'm disappointed that this guest decided to leave this review after we had had an email exchange in which I explained that most of these minor issues were waiting for a joiner (carpenter) to come, and that tradesmen are like gold dust here. These issues have now been fixed or will be fixed in the next couple of weeks.

We visited St Monans as two families with 3 kids - the house provided perfect accommodation in a great location. The beds were comfortable and the living/dining area spacious with plenty of room for the kids to spread out.

Would definitely stay again
