Wonderful to waken early and take a walk in the still of the morning to the beach or further into town. Yonne was most attentive and provided an excellent 'welcome pack' which was invaluable after a long day travelling. The property was very clean, tidy and well maintained and we would certainly recommend it to friends. There is no shortage of places to eat and drink in Stonehaven and there are excellent recommendations in the 'house guide' provided

The house is spacious and comfortable: our family of four shared it with a couple of friends with more space to spare. It was spotless and well equipped. The garden is beautiful and HUGE, much to our boys' delight who could play football all day long. The location is also great, a short walk to the village and only few steps away from the stunning views of the Cairngorms and the river Dee. I look forward to our next stay!

Karen was very welcoming. Balmedie has a lovely beach but 10 minutes north is Newburgh with its resident seal colony. Our other tip is that the fish and chips from across the road in Balmedie is surprisingly good. The house has a dishwasher, washing machine and even a bath with water jets. We would definitely recommend for those looking for a break.
