“Compact but extremely comfortable”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Before we even got into the property, Patrick gave us a very warm welcome and showed us around this beautifully decorated and equipped studio apartment. Fresh eggs and a bottle of bubbly awaited our arrival. The bed was very comfortable. Free wi-fi access. Facilities in North Berwick are very close by as is the beach and golf courses. The one day it rained, we were able to make use of the extensive range of DVD's available in the apartment. Thank you Patrick, we enjoyed your great golfing stories and hope to see you again next year!!

“Super property”
Reviewed 22 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Everything you will need and much more is provided, generous owners. All equipment quality and new, didn't use the dishwasher and washing machine but wonderful additions to those staying more than a couple of days. Garden area is lovely for when the sunshines. Ideal location in a pretty part of the town and very near the railway station for easy access to Edinburgh (30 mins) and walking distance to the lovely town of North Berwick with lots of shops and restaurants. Easy walking distance to the beach and the Marina with lovely views.
