“Perfect Family Holiday”
Reviewed 25 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This holiday home is situated right on the beach in Elie. The views are wonderful and there is so much to do nearby. The house is comfortable, spacious and well equipped with a homely feel. The beach, which is literally outside the garden gate, is safe and clean - perfect for children. The holiday was great for both adults and children. Elie is a gorgeous town with good places to eat and drink. The ship inn at the harbour is well worth a visit. There are lots of activities such as golf, tennis and water sports available too. This trip the weather was kind and the kids played on the sand non stop allowing us time to relax. The "chain walk" an exciting coastal path is really close to Beachend. We did it with the kids (probably suitable for 7or 8 years up with adult supervision) and we all loved it. The whole area is a bit of a holiday paradise, excellent for walking (Fife Coastal Path), running and cycling. We loved walking across the beach into the town - Drinks for the adults, ice creams for the kids. Complete success - will definitely use again

“Home from home with a stunning view”
Reviewed 21 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Nights with food friends at the Ship Inn or roasting marshmallows on the beach, days filled with water sports, golf, beach walks and day trips to St Andrews, Crail and Pittenweem.

Elie is a great wee village and Beachend has one of the best locations on the seafront - wake up, walk out the front garden and you are on the beach.

Our boys (5 all primary age) had a great time and would thoroughly recommend.

“Ideally positioned for the beach with wonderful views over the sea.”
Reviewed 19 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We spent five days at the house with two small children who took full advantage of the location - they loved running down to the sand without having to worry about traffic. We adults could sit in the garden with our morning coffee keeping an eye on them. It's a lovely part of the beach for building sandcastles or just sunbathing and when the tide was out our grandchildren explored the rock pools. Everything they wanted was right outside the door. The house was well equipped and we all enjoyed the bright sunroom at the front and the sunny bedrooms upstairs. We'd have spent more time on the upstairs balcony if we'd been there without the wee ones. It's the best house we've ever rented on the Fife coast. We'd definitely come back.

“Relaxing week on the beach”
Reviewed 6 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed at Beachend for a week for my 30th birthday- what a great place! The house is very homely and is very well equipped. We wanted for nothing in terms kitchen/dining equipment/ day to day utensils. The house is spacious and spending time in the sunroom was incredibly relaxing. We were joined for coffee by a pod of what looked like dolphins cruising down the coast one morning- Uninvited guests like that are always welcome. The house was clean and tidy, and made it easy to settle in. Elie itself looks spectacular from the garden outside Beachend, and evening drinks and BBQs on the grass outside were a real joy.

All that is left to mention is the lovely beach just yards from the front gate- few can claim to be live closer without living in one of the beach huts.

Thoroughly enjoyed our week there. Brought back memories of Earlsferry as a child. We will definitely be back!

“Fantastic weekend”
Reviewed 10 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Just spent fantastic weekend with family celebrating a 50th birthday. Having stayed in numerous holiday homes in Elie, Beachend offers one of the best for location, views and access to the beach. The house is sufficiently equipped to ensure your stay is very comfortable, although it would benefit greatly with a further bathroom. The front room is a lovely place to relax, read a book or enjoy time with the family, whilst the large windows allow you to enjoy the amazing view. The balcony is a great bonus to the house and will be fantastic in the finer weather.
