What makes this Apartment unique

To be closer to nature, rock pooling for crabs, starfish etc. bird watching, dolphin/seal spotting. Beach combing for shells, sea glass, sea pottery, etc.

Beautiful house in an ideal location
Just back from an amazing stay at the Beach Art villa. The house was immaculate and had everything that we needed for our stay. As we were there in November it was great having the log fire for cosy nights in. The sea view balcony was a great spot to sit and watch the world go by. The views were out of this world :)
We enjoyed the local pub 'The Railway', literally minutes from the house. Friendly locals and a nice selection of drinks and some light snacks during the day. A short drive and you are in Elie, Anstruther, St. Andrews etc. Lots more restaurants and places to eat if you wish to try somewhere else. There are a few takeaways that will deliver to the house. Handy if you can't be bothered cooking!
Don't think you can beat waking up to the sound of the waves. Being able to walk directly on to the beach was also really good. We had a few early morning walks when there was hardly another soul there.
Hope to be back and would highly recommend this house to anybody wanting to visit Lower Largo.
Thank you so much H & D. Lovely to hear you had a great stay. Thank you for being amazing guests. We would welcome you guys back anytime. Warmest regards Nicola & Martin x
Idyllic spot to relax
This is a lovely home in a beautiful location. As it faces south you can see both sunrises and sunsets. The beach is literally on the doorstep. We all loved the beach walks, especially the dog! We did some kite-flying, too. I could have happily sat by the window the whole time watching the sea. It is a clean, warm, welcoming, well equipped villa with a lot of character. The village is delightful and all around is dog friendly which we (and the dog) enjoyed. There was a great pub and small hotel for meals within a stone's throw. Would definitely recommend and hope to return.
This is a lovely, heart warming message, thank you!
It's great for us to hear that other families have enjoyed the house and area.
We are grateful for you taking the time to write this.
(Thank you leaving the house so perfect too!)

Fantastic and highly recommended
We had a fantastic week in the villa - and because it is on the North Bank it has a south facing aspect over the sea. The upper balcony was a great place to read a paper in the sun. The location couldn't be better. The sea comes right in and when the tide is out, the beach is great. The local amenities were good, everyone was friendly and we would recommend it to anyone who loves being by the sea.
We are really delighted you had a great stay and enjoyed the beach location as much as we do!
It makes us really happy that you had a great family holiday. Thank you for this review. Best wishes Nicola & Martin
Idyllic Family Holiday!
My family came to stay whilst exploring St. Andrews and the local area. The house was wonderful, spotlessly clean and beautifully turned out. The views onto the beach were wonderful, and the house is much more spacious than the pictures depict I thought! There were lots of books and DVD's for the children to dip into if the weather was a bit off, and the gate directly leads to the beach where we found hermit crabs, shells galore and sea snails! A friendly village, fresh fish, and daily trips out and about made this one of the best family holidays we have had! We recommend the Scottish Deer Centre, fantastic!
Thank you so much for your kind words. We are so delighted that you had a brilliant holiday! We really appreciate you taking the the time to write this wonderful review. Kindest regards

Beach Art Villa
What a wonderful week we had at this beautiful villa which is wonderfully decorated throughout with the owner's own work . On arrival tho villa was immaculate and a lovely welcome pack awaited us . To make it perfect the weather was lovely and we spent mornings exploring the beach with our collie puppy followed by lovely fresh coffee on our own private balcony watching others on the beach ! Afternoons and evenings were spent exploring the local area including Crail , Anstruther and St Andrews , all a short journey away . We ate some gorgeous local food including lobster bought direct from the local fisherman for a very reasonable price . Blacketyside farm a short distance away also has lovely fresh local produce for both sit in and takeaway with a lovely picnic area .
Overall a lovely holiday in a beautiful part of the country . The beachfront location of the villa is just perfect and we've already recommended to our friends . Well certainly go back
Un petit coin de paradis!
Superbe endroit pour se détendre et oublier le reste du monde le temps d'une échappée sur les côtes écossaises! La maison est grande, très bien entretenue, confortable et chaleureuse, et celà même en plein hiver. Lire au coin du feu, bercé par le bruit des vagues qui viennent lécher le mur de la terrasse à marée haute; ouvrir les rideaux le matin et ne voir par la fenêtre que la mer à perte de vue... Magique! Mon ami et moi avons également beaucoup apprécié le sentier de promenade partant du village même et longeant la côte. De quoi marcher plusieurs heures entre champs et plage: là-bas, pas de barre d'immeubles our gâcher le paysage! Les villes et villages alentour valent également le détour, et vous ne manquerez pas d'y découvrir de délicieuses spécialités locales. En un mot, un séjour inoubliable, je vous le recommande!
