We stayed at West House for a week in August, a mixed group of children, parents and grandparents. Despite dreadful weather, we all had a fantastic time - a lovely house, comfortable and relaxing, with plenty of room for all. Right on the beach and with a great garden at the back, plus a lovely playroom with lots of toys, the kids were fully entertained. The adults loved the views from the 'snug', and cosy fires in the evening. We've been holidaying together for 15 years and this was our best year yet - thanks in very large part to West House itself.
Lovely large and spacious house with fantastic sea views, we were a party of 15 and never felt on top of each other.
Amenities were really good throughout the house and garden and having enough bathrooms to cater for everyone with plenty of space,The large table which is a great focal point with the open kitchen was excellent.
Hand over with the keys was not done by myself but another member of the party, they found Jamie really good and very informed on the house and area, only a couple of suggestions, we noticed the wine glasses were far too tall for the dishwasher and nobody really wants to wash them by hand while on holiday and you have two dishwashers provided!! we purchased some cheap dishwasher proof glasses which we left behind which we hope will be well used. Also maybe a laminated sheet left in the book for a brief instructions for the washing machine, tumble dryer and cooker, as not all member of the party are familiar with workings of different machines. This house was just perfect for the family reunion.
Although we did not see the representative when we arrived the cleaner told us the basics and we worked the rest out for ourselves. The bedrooms are fabulous, with all but one en-suite. The walled garden is lovely and was excellent for us as we had a dog and small child with us. The public rooms of the house are in a 'lived in' condition which was fine. Overall I would recommend this house which has the most stunning views of Elie beach, and would definitely return.
The house in all aspects was OUTSTANDING. Four couples and one single stayed there, and everyone raved about all aspects of the home.
We had a fantastic weekend in this stunning property! It was the perfect location for our girlie weekend away.... Amazing house with gorgeous decor and right on the beach, with breath taking views!!! We all loved it and would definitely book again!!!
The house was even better than its description on the website, especially the garden. All the rooms were fabulous and everything was very clean. All those connected with the house were friendly and welcoming. The house has a very cosy, lived in feeling which made us feel right at home as soon as we arrived. We have recommended the property and Elie to everyone we know. The Ship Inn was great to eat in or just for a casual drink. The walks surrounding the small fishing villages are just wonderful. The house would be great to stay in summer or winter. We intend to come again as soon as possible. Thanks very much!
