Welcome home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed this lovely home away from home. Mark and Marie were very helpful whenever we needed questions answered. The home is full of character. We enjoyed lovely evenings on the porch. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks Mark and Marie!

Beautiful Central Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house several times over the years, and it never disappoints. The central location on Water Street is extremely convenient. The house is immaculate and very comfortable. We would not hesitate to recommend this property.

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!
