This was a great holiday for a three-generation family group. Patrick's house is lovely. The communal rooms (dining & sitting) are comfortable but a bit scruffy - perfect when our group included a toddler and a terrier. The bedrooms are clean and freshly decorated. The beds are very comfortable. Two really decent showers and an amazing bath meant there was no queueing or conflict when we were getting ready to go out. The stairs are good exercise! The situation is perfect - halfway between the high street and the beach.
Portabello is a little gem - the beach an endless stretch of sand with a pub, cafe, ice cream stall and two children's play areas. The high street is full of great food and drink outlets - particularly the Twelve Triangles bakery, the Beer Zoo bottle store, Anna Thai and St Andrews fish and chips.
We relaxed so much that by the end of the week we felt we lived here.
A great little flat with a wonderful view over the beach greeted us as we arrived. All the rooms were comfortably furnished and we had a great nights sleep. Booking was easy and the owner very responsive. We were impressed that there was a stair lift on the main staircase. The kitchen is small but has everything needed for self catering including a freezer and a dishwasher. The views are brilliant from the front out over the sea..parking was easy with room for both our family cars. We would definitely book this venue again.
