“Beautiful property, in an ideal setting! Home from home.”
Reviewed 25 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This is a stunning flat in a perfect setting for a short or long stay! Beautifully decorated apartment within walking distance of the stunning East Neuk coastline in a great wee part of Scotland. I highly recommend this property and the owners are very friendly and helpful! Thank you for a lovely weekend stay!

“Perfect holiday home”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 for a stay in January 2014

What a wonderful find! This beautiful apartment has everything. Fab location close to St Andrews and other East Neuk villages, handy for the beach and great walks. If you want to stay indoors and relax - it is extremely comfortable and well equipped. We had a lovely weekend here and hope to come again.

“Modern and quiet family accommodation”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Really enjoyed our stay at 2 Balcomie Green. It is a modern and spacious apartment that can easily accommodate up to six. Also benefits from a very well equipped kitchen, including thermos flasks if you want a picnic on the beach! It is only two minutes walk from the hotel/bar/restaurant and the shops. We will certainly return if we are up that way again.

Our family group ranged from 8 months old to 60 and the house suited us all. It has to be the best equipped accommodation we have ever stayed in, well done. It is a great location for exploring the villages of the East Neuk and further afield. We hope to return next year. Thank you.

“Excellent place to stay to enjoy the beautiful place of Crail”
Reviewed 13 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The property was spacious & very well equipped for short or long breaks. It was immaculate throughout & beautifully decorated with all the mod cons. With the property being on ground level it was easily accessible for all abilities. It was in walking distance to the village centre & the beach so a car would not always be required. There is a regular bus service to St Andrews, etc so you could just sit back & enjoy the views. We had recommendations to eat in The Golf hotel & we were not disappointed. The fact that the property was localised & just like home from home made our stay very enjoyable so would be happy to book up again in the future.

“Couldn't be better - fabulous flat, great owners!”

Just back from a wonderful stay at this apartment with 3 kids & husband. This is without doubt the cleanest, most beautifully decorated, best equipped and most thoughtful apartment we have stayed in (and we have stayed in a fair few!) I say thoughtful because, although beautifully decorated,kids are made very welcome and were in heaven with loads of games, puzzles, x box, DVDs and books to choose from. There was also a stack of outdoor toys from buckets and spades to fishing lines and frisbee s. Little touches -like real tea leaves to try, nice soap, candles for anyone who may be having a birthday,to a little sewing kit and a stack of beach towels - make a difference & everything is thought of in this apartment. I cannot fault it plus it s terrific value for money.The weather was great during our stay so we were out a lot of the time down at the beach,at the rock pools, walking along the front to the wee swing park , visiting the pottery or flying a kite -Crail is so quaint and pretty. The apartment is in a fantastic location just a few minutes walk from the beach and centre of the town. It is also on the ground floor and has wide corridors so good for buggies, prams and wheelchairs.For those who want a bit of hustle and bustle St. Andrews is just a short 10mins drive away.

The owners couldnt have been more friendly and to prove this went to the bother of packaging up my errant son,s jacket which he left behind and posted it to us. Fantastic!

Had a great week here with our children aged 6 & 10. Great location - quiet but only 2 minutes stroll from roome bay with its play park, beach and coastal walks. Apartment is extremely well equipped - with absolutely loads of books, DVDs and games for children and adults alike - indoor and outdoor. Kitchen has everything you need and more. Feels brand new and was spotlessly clean - just couldn't fault anything !
