“Fantastic, a real gem of a place to stay in North Berwick!”
Reviewed 2 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

A group of six of us stayed at the Aaran Haven in February and if I'm ever in the area again I wouldn't look anywhere else.

Evelyn was very friendly and helpful with our booking - we'd originally filled in the form for the Aaran Oaks next door, but she correctly spotted that the Haven would be better suited to our needs with three twin rooms rather than a mixture of doubles and twins. The week before our stay Evelyn e-mailed some more detailed arrival instructions which made sure that we had all of the information we needed before heading up to North Berwick.

The weekend stay itself was absolutely perfect. The apartment is in a great location, ideal for exploring North Berwick itself and very handy for catching the train to Edinburgh. The bedrooms are spotlessly clean and luxurious, the apartment is very well equipped throughout, the bathrooms and kitchen are stylish and modern, the wifi was fast and reliable, the lounge was spacious and comfortable with a good TV. There were lots of nice additional touches too e.g. a welcome pack with a bottle of wine, biscuits and chocolates which went down very nicely on our first night!

I can't say enough good things about the place. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone who's thinking of staying in the North Berwick area, and I certainly hope to return again soon.

“Great Accommodation Great Location Great Holiday”
Reviewed 27 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

This is our 2nd time to Aaron Haven and we weren't disappointed. We first came in October and had a great trip. WE normally stay in hotels so took a gamble going self catering. The attention to detail was similar to a top hotel if not better.... from the fabulous welcome hamper on arrival and packed of mini eggs for our 5 year old to the fluffy dressing gowns and slippers and luxury toiletries.

The accommodation is just perfect for us, used to our home comforts, Aaron Haven felt just felt like home from home.
This time we visited in February and had a new addition to our family a 7 month puppy - the owner warmly accepts dogs and even recommended dog friendly restaurants - we visited NetherAbbey and Herringbone - both great!

The location is ideal as we could walk everywhere - we took our dog on the beach each day and enjoyed popping to the local shops and restaurants. We hope to be back and will try to visit in the summer so we can enjoy the outside seating area.

“Elegant Luxury.”
Reviewed 28 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Booked as a brief retreat from the Christmas mayhem and to celebrate a special birthday, Aaran Oaks was chosen for its superb location at the end of the main street, its proximity to the beach and amazing coastal walks and the photographs and short film on its website. The apartment (we were downstairs) did not disappoint, it was so comfortable, warm, beautifully decorated and furnished and had everything we needed to make our stay memorable and entertaining.

Evelyn's attention to detail must surely be legendary by now, we were greeted by splendid and tasteful Christmas decorations that added to the atmosphere, lots of alcohol and chocolates and most touchingly of all a birthday cake with 80 on it and for health and safety reasons not as many candles!

Due to a nasty change in the weather we were unable to walk as much as we planned but that was no hardship whatsoever when we had the elegant luxury of Aaran Oaks to wallow in.

Thank you Evelyn for making our stay so special, Robert & Jean (Newcastle Upon Tyne).

“Luxury flat in great location”
Reviewed 3 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Booked a weekend break here for mothers birthday. Perfect birthday treat. The flat is luxurious with everything from a rolltop bath and separate shower room and bathroom to a well kitted out kitchen, spacious bedrooms and spacious lounge with access to wifi. The attention to detail is superb. Welcome pack was more like a Christmas hamper with wine and whiskey and other luxury goods with an additional birthday cake provided. The place is spotless and really fitted out to a very high spec. The lounge looks onto the Main Street and from kitchen can see the links and sea. Very generously was offered a couple of extra nights free of charge to extend the stay which was kind thought. Would highly recommend the flat and would definitely want to return. A real effort made to make your stay special. Would be nice to come in summer as there is a nice space outdoors too.

“Stayed in Arran Oaks and very posh”
Reviewed 3 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

I visited Scotland and stayed in Arran Oaks. The apartment was lovely and cosy and I liked all the decoration and how original the lighting was. After having a bit of problem with the key box because I hadn't used one before and the 12 hours travelling up from Wales I got in the apartment at 11:30pm. After having a tour around the apartment before bed I found treats such as chocolate, biscuits and wine which had been left which I was very happy with. I would have loved to have stayed longer because there was so much to see and do. Hopefully I will visit Scotland again and thanks Evelyn for all your help before my stay here. By even giving links so I found my way around North Berwick and new what was near where I was staying. Thanks also for the email to make sure I arrived safely. Will be recommending your apartment Arran Oaks to everyone.
