Fabulous home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived, we were greeted by the owners of the apartment. We were welcomed to Scotland, shown around the flat, given a beautiful gift basket, given contact information in case we needed anything and left to rest after our long journey from the US. The apartment was beautiful and appointed with everything we could possibly need. It was spotless and roomy. There was a full kitchen and two bathrooms. We had hoped to stay in St Andrews, but when we found this place, decided on it instead... And that was such a great addition to our vacation. We didn't want a tourist vacation, and Leven provided that indulgence into the culture of Scotland. We visited the market every day, and I think they looked forward to our American accent by the end of the week.

The grounds surrounding the apartment are absolutely beautiful. The manor house is beyond words, and our apartment provided a warm private place to rest after a day of golf in St Andrews or shopping and running around in Edinburgh. Nicki and Ian made us feel like a part of their family. They helped us make the most of our vacation with advice anytime we asked. I travel a lot for work, so when I'm on vacation, I like to rent apartments. This was among the most memorable rentals of my life. If I return to Scotland, I will rent it again! It was clean, well maintained, comfortable, and the bed was comfortable after a long day of golf.

Fabulous first class hideaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in this apartment in March 2012. Everything was top notch - the kitchen was especially outfitted with everthing we could need. The flat was very clean with a great layout. The towels and linens were top quality and made sleeping a dream. We were on a trip our our teenage daughter who loved the two bathrooms! The owners were fabulous to deal with and very kind and caring in their setup of the apartment. We found it was the perfect getaway from visiting AND the perfect place to entertain family as well. There was so much room and yet, the place was very cosy. We felt totally at home during our stay. We plan to stay there again and would highly reccommend this great flat! Sheri Anderson

Spacious and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for your wonderful flat for our break.

The flat is just so relaxing,

with everything we could possibly need

and the gardens for walking our dog, before going further afield to explore the fabulous coastline in Fife.

We left your flat feeling so relaxed -

we will definitely be coming back!!
