“Perfect Holiday Rental”
Reviewed 5 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a wonderful stay at Puffin's Lookout. The flat is absolutely perfect; fantastic facilities, incredibly clean and a wonderful location. The view is stunning! John was very helpful with regard to our stay and the local attractions / amenities.

We would certainly stay here again if we were to visit the area.

“Another fantastic stay at Puffins Lookout”
Reviewed 3 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is the second year we have stayed here because we had such a good holiday last year. The apartment is lovely, with everything you need and overlooking the sea. I love North Berwick and will definitely be coming back. Thank you again for a lovely holiday.

“Ideal location with stunning views...and awesome showers!”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We visit North Berwick every year, staying in different rentals but this time was probably the best. Puffin's Palace overlooks the main beach so it's perfect for watching the activities on the sand. It is in very easy walking distance to the town centre, Sea Bird Centre, local tennis courts and putting green.
The whole unit is very modern looking and tastefully decorated. The bedrooms are very comfortable (my youngest daughter really liked her comfy mattress!) and the power showers with waterfall option were a real treat! For those who can't be without, there is WiFi access, a good size smart TV, dvd player, and for the rest of us a dishwasher and washer/dryer!
There are added extras like buckets, spades and nets to use at the beach, a few dvds, and a welcome package with tea and coffee to get you through until you've done your shopping.
Puffin's Palace is a wonderful place to stay in and we recommend it to everyone!

“There is no better place to stay to enjoy the timelessness of North Berwick”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Other reviewers have said all that needs to be said about the quality of The Puffins and the friendly demeanor and helpfulness of John, the owner. Having been a visitor to North Berwick on a few occasions now I would add that there is no better place to stay to be able to enjoy the timelessness of the town than the Puffins. To sit and watch the sea, the birds, the ships and the brave Scottish families "sunbathing" on the beach in all weathers is a never ending joy. We spent a week in each Puffin and found them both to be perfect.

“A great spot..A home from Home”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Rented both Puffin Lookout and Palace for the week with my extended family. Ages ranged from 9yrs to 72yrs. 40 steps or so up to the flats but it is so worth it - a superb view over the beach and Puffin Bay from both flats! These flats are very comfortable and well furnished with all modern conveniences. The kitchens were well equipped. The flats are well maintained light and airy. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms well appointed. We could not fault the location- short walk to town centre with loads of places to eat and drink at. The owner John was very attentive. Would not hesitate in booking again.

“An ideal location for a family holiday”

This apartment is located right beside the beach. The flat is very comfortable. A real home from home. The owner was very helpful and kept in regular contact in order to make sure our stay was perfect.
