                                      This is the second time myself and my family have stayed here, fantastic apartment, perfect location for exploring fife, easy checkin / checkout, fully equipped and tastefully decorated. We love love this apartment as it ticks all our 'boxes', clean, well equipped, good location, feels like home away from home, and great value for money. We will be back
