Superb house

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful and spacious home in downtown Saint-Andrews. Everything was great: well appointed rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms and lots of shared spaces for many guests. Although it was autumn, we noticed a very fine and large yard. The only comment for improvement would be to have blinds in all the bedrooms (only blinds in the main bedroom)because when you are used to sleeping in a darkened room, the outdoor lights can be pretty shiny. Also, the mattress in the attic room was not very comfortable: maybe okay for children but definitely not for adults. Overall, a fine experience! We highly recommend it!

Simply Superb!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home! It seemed less like a rental, and more like a welcoming retreat at the end of each day. It is located perfectly in this charming seaside town. You can walk to restaurants, quaint little shops, the waterfront, even a grocery store. The neighbourhood surrounding this home, however, is entirely residential and very quiet. This is a character home, well-decorated, beautifully maintained, and supplied with everything you could possibly want.The kitchen is a gem ..... granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and lacks for nothing. Beds were very comfortable. There are breakaway spaces in this home where you can enjoy some privacy without retreating to your bedroom ...... certainly a plus.

Mark and Marie responded to our queries very promptly and were a pleasure to deal with.

It is worth mentioning that there is no bathroom on the main floor, but 3 bathrooms on the 2nd and 3rd floors. This may pose a problem for anyone with mobility issues.

We highly recommend this property, and look forward to returning.

The perfect St. Andrews home for my family last week!

  • 5 of 5

We are 5 adult siblings now taking an annual reunion vacation. This year we chose St. Andrews. Harbour Watch has been beautifully renovated and is very comfortable. Also a great location, easily walkable to everything from dinner on the waterfront to the Algonquin Hotel to sunrise on the point.

The kitchen is well equipped & easy to use. The bedrooms are comfortable, and each has its own bath, even on the 3rd floor.

The only things travelers might need to consider are: a)no 1st floor half bath. And (b)the 3rd floor bedroom is probably mainly for kids; my brother laughed about being stooped over now, from trying to avoid hitting his head on the sloped ceilings.

Mark and Marie responded to my emails and questions 100% of the time, and very quickly.

We all would highly recommend Harbour Watch!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 nights at Harbour Watch in beautiful St. Andrews during the last week of July, 2016. I cannot say enough about this home and the location. There were seven of us: My husband, myself, our three children and my parents. The bedrooms and bathrooms on the second floor were beautiful. The TV room with daybed and the bedroom/bathroom on the third floor was a perfect space for our three kids. The kitchen had everything, and more, that we needed. We had a nice family supper in the dining room, and then used the table throughout the week for lots of game playing. My favorite spot was the lower deck where I spent many mornings drinking my coffee, surrounded by flowers, watching the town come to life. Peaceful! The location of Harbour Watch was perfect...close to the beach and close to the shops for browsing. The property was spotlessly clean and well maintained. During our time there the microwave broke and within minutes after a call to the owner, a new microwave was waiting at Home Hardware down the street for us. I would highly recommend Harbour Watch to anyone and everyone!

Great porch, charming home, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Harbour Watch is a terrific vacation home and St Andrews by the Sea is a gem. Having a "home base" so clean, well-stocked, inviting, and so close to the the heart of downtown made our explorations that much more enjoyable. From renting bikes to take in all the views of Minister's Island to eating fresh currants off the bush in the vibrant Kingsbrae Garden to incredible water-side meals to the vibrancy of the town farmer's market to searching for shells and sea glass at low tide, we never ran out of things to do. Mark and Marie checked in with us several times and were very helpful with recommendations as we planned our trip. Wonderful spot!
