About Viv Smith

I live 6 miles along the coast in Anstruther and manage both this Studio and a larger Apartment in Crail, which sleeps 4. I think it is very important to offer a high standard of comfort and cleanliness to our guests, so I do all the cleaning myself and my husband, Robert looks after the maintenance.

Viv Smith purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Viv Smith chose Elie

Elie is the most exceptional location-it offers such a lot to the visitor: beautiful sandy beaches, coastal walks, golfing, putting, tennis, outdoor bowls, watersports, good Pubs, restaurants, Deli, and easy public transport links to the rest of the East Neuk, St Andrews and Edinburgh and Glasgow.

What makes this apartment unique

The Studio is really comfortable and just ideal for 1 or 2 people sharing.

Comfortable but noisy

  • 3 of 5

All facilities are in good condition. The bed is very comfortable. The hob is a little old fashioned & slow/inconvenient.

Our major hassle was street noise. Sleep was difficult. I was surprised at the lack of double glazing which would go a long way to alleviating this problem. The location is very handy for local amenities.

I think it is a little overpriced.

Owner's Response: Thank-you for your review. I am sorry to hear it was noisy-I find that if the windows are closed at night, there isn't normally a problem. We would love to install double glazing but as it is a listed building, the council will not permit. The hob is electric and is slower than gas, which we cannot get a supply to for the Studio. We welcome all feedback from guests-thankyou for taking the time and thankyou for staying with us.

Great well appointed wee flat.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our anniversary and it was lovely. Viv is a wonderful host with lovely friendly touches. We even left something and she posted up the next day. Elie is lovely with a mix of proper shops and a great wee harbour and a gorgeous beach. We had food at the ship inn on the waterfront and it was lush!

The flat was spotless with a wood burning stove and a novel pull down bed. Have no hesitation in recommending here.

An excellent studio, centrally situated.

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent studio which is spotlessly clean and is a wonderful base for two adults. It has a good, clean shower room with under floor heating and the lounge area is well set out with an ingenious bed which comes down from the wall and which is full sized and very comfortable. There is also a log burner in the lounge if needed which makes it very cosy in the colder evenings. The kitchen area has all the appliances you will need including a washer / dryer. There is always a bottle of wine awaiting you from the very friendly host and we have had many wonderful holidays here and are returning this summer again. Elie has a wonderful beach, great walks and is a good base for touring the East Neuk. We would recommend this studio apartment to anyone wanting a great holiday in Elie or the East Neuk.
