“Cosy apartment with stunning views”
Reviewed 26 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We stayed in Kittiwake Apartment for a week and loved every hour of our stay. The apartment is very cosy, well equipped and the views over the Firth of Forth were unbeatable: You can watch the fishing fleet come home in the morning and do lighthouse spotting from your sofa after dark. Anstruther golf course can also be seen from the little balcony - very convenient to see what time might be the busiest.

Pittenweem itself is a great location to spend a Holiday. It's very scenic and is ideally situated for exploring the area, for golfing or for a lovely walks along the Fife coastal path. We recommend the Cocoa Tree cafe and the local chippy.

Kirsten is a superb host and helped us answering all our little questions that we had. We loved our stay in Pittenweem and would like to say thank you again.

“Great location, Great flat, Lovely host”

We had the pleasure of bringing in 2016 in this lovely and homely flat. Everything exceeded our expectations and the icing on the cake was it was dog friendly. Great base for walking and exploring the East Neuk.
We intend to return in the future.
Thanks Jeni.

“Beautiful flat, great location - exactly as described.”

This is a comfortable, superbly equipped, modern flat in an elevated position above Pittenweem. There is a small balcony off the living area, with a great view of the sea and part of the harbour, which is only a five minute walk away. The flat is in excellent condition throughout, with paintings by local artists. The sofas in the living area are very comfortable, as are the beds – I got a great night’s sleep. The flat was lovely and quiet, both day and night. There are TVs in the living area and the bedrooms, and the wi-fi worked perfectly throughout the flat. There is a dedicated parking space for one vehicle.
Jeni met us as we arrived and was friendly, helpful and informative as she showed around the flat. She lives next door, and was happy to be contacted if we had any problems or questions.
I can’t think of any way in which the flat could be improved, or any way in which the hostess could have been friendlier or more helpful. I don’t think I would look anywhere else if returning to the area.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 24 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I have always found the sea relaxing and for the view alone this flat is fantastic. However it is also a flat that has excellent facilities as well. The flat itself is clean and well kept, with TVs in each of the two bedrooms as well as the lounge - not that I used mine as I preferred to lie and listen to the sound of the sea once I went to bed! There is an excellent bakery in walking distance. The flat is well stocked with crockery etc. and I particularly liked the fact that it also included tea towels and a kitchen towel, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, J-clothes etc. Thanks for a great holiday!

“Home Away From Home!”

I was so excited to see the flat looked EXACTLY like the pictures, and it exceeded our expectations from the moment we walked in. We had four in our group, and we were very comfortable, and able to utilize the kitchen supplied with everything we needed. I had issues with the washer/dryer, but that was easily solved once this American finally read the directions!! The location was very convenient for us attending the Open in St. Andrews. We never had to deal with the horrible traffic issues others spoke of. We also had the opportunity to enjoy the local pub, bakery, and the beautiful views! Ian and Genni were wonderful, and able to help us if we needed any advice, etc. Lovely couple, and it was nice to have them close by.

It was a truly magical time, and I would recommend staying here, and if I have the opportunity again...I would go back in a second!!
