“Easter at The Elms in Elie 😀”
Reviewed 29 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Just back from a long weekend in Elie staying at The Elms. Five couples. Didn't want to leave. The house is absolutely beautiful. Decorated to high standard. Everything you need and more. Two huge sitting rooms. Two kitchens. One with table big enough to sit the ten of us. Beautiful big garden. Elie itself is wonderful. Lovely pubs, cafes, deli, gift shops. Beach five mins from house. We made the most of everything and had an amazing time. Met owner when we were leaving. Lovely guy who was pleased we had such a great time in his house.

“The Elms ”
Reviewed 17 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Happy New Year !!.

We recently spent our New Year holiday in Elie... Truly wonderful place, with great walks and pubs, we will definitely be back.
However " The Elms" is less wonderful.
On arrival "The Elms" is admittedly pleasing; however the standard over the house is less so. The rooms range from boutique to down right dingy in a wing that time forgot. We are three families and had to pull straws not to get the worst room !!.
We also had to use pans on the stairs to catch the water leaking through the ceilings every time the shower was used, we ended up not being able to use one shower because of this issue ( not handy in a party of 11 people).
There are also numerous other issues, from a toilet unsafe to use as its not attached properly, broken chairs, fires we couldn't light, broken pans and ...... Exposed electric cables in the Games room !!.
None of the above spoiled our lovely holiday with friends, however the fact the owner has never made contact to address our issues is highly unprofessional.
"Elie Letting " were good in their part, easy to deal with and passed on our concerns to the owner. Thank you !!.

" Elie a little gem on the coast "

Thankfully the family who stayed at the house the week before (Christmas week) and who are keen to return were pleased with the overall standards and awarded us , as have all others till now, 5 stars. That said it is unfortunate that the shower leaked - these things do happen and are unforeseen. It will of course be remedied. As for not getting in contact, well I live literally 2 streets away and had I been requested to pop in there would have been no hesitation! Certainly this would have been the case if you had booked through me. I really do hope you return to Elie. As you say it is a great place for families. Kind regards Robert

Reviewed 21 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We booked The Elms for our usual October break, there were 12 of us, 6 adults and 6 kids. We really couldn't have picked anywhere better, the house itself was amazing, loads of room and everything was to a very high specification. Robert met us on arrival and was very helpful. The location of the house was perfect, 5 min walk to the beach, pub, restaurants and shops, plenty of on street parking. We go away every year and we were all unanimous that this has been the best house we have stayed in.

Highly recommended!

“Faultless”
Reviewed 22 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I spent a weekend at the Elms (9 adults, 1 child) - and it was absolutely perfect for a sociable weekend. The house is finished to a very high standard - large bedrooms, ample bathrooms/ en-suites, and plenty of living space (indoors and out). Ideal for a large group - wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

“Fantastic holiday with family and friends”
Reviewed 23 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

What a fantastic week staying at The Elms. Three families with 6 children aged from 8 weeks to 10 yrs. The house had plenty of space and everything we needed to cater for every meal and meet all the entertainment needs for the kids. It was like a home from home and the owner was very friendly and helpful. The bedrooms were all spacious with plenty of room to unpack. Bathrooms all done to a high standard. The house is a 2 minute walk from shops and the beach and enough space to park 3-4 cars on the street outside. Elie is a beautiful town - the Elie Deli, The Pavillion, The 19th hole and Braids all nice as well as Ardross Farm Shop. We will definitely be back to stay at The Elms!!

“New Year at The Elms”
Reviewed 5 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Very happy to highly recommend The Elms as a great getaway for a large group of friends who decided to get out of the city for New Year. The Elms was the perfect place for us to spend Hogmany. 15 people in total (11 in the big house and 4 in the garden cottage) both were fabulous. The main house was large, spacious and very comfortable with your dream kitchen and modern bathrooms throughout. All bedrooms were beautifully decorated with lots of lovely touches. Having the huge Christmas tree in the lounge made it very special and added the festive touch that we didn't expect in a rented house. We made good use of all the facilities and having the summer house as games room was a great extra. Thanks Robert, you were the host with the most and we all loved it.
