Mike purchased this house in 2000
The location is perfect - I own property in various locations, though I choose to live in Dalgety Bay. It has very easy transport links to Edinburgh city center and is a great base to explore the whole of Scotland as the house is near the M90 motorway. Aberdour golf course is walking distance - its a very friendly town, where most people know each other. I can describle the house as a home from home - ready to go. It also boasts stunning views of the historic Forth Rail Bridge and has a south facing decked area which is great for al fresco dining and BBQs.
Amazing coastal view towards Edinburgh and the bridges, please see photos ! Really I think the house will tick all the boxes for a great holiday. Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
This property was terrible. It was a construction site that was unsafe to live in. The dirt and dust in the home was shocking, the windows were boarded up, there were nails all over the ground outside, the kitchen lights exploded, the bedding was stained and moldy, there was moldy on the ceilings and in the bathrooms. It just goes on and on. BEWARE OF THIS PROPERTY AND OWNER. I HAVE LOTS OF PICS TO SHARE.
This property is spacious and comfortable, easily accommodating 10 people or more. We were a party of six, and we luxuriated in the space.
Dalgetty bay is a residential estate, not a holiday resort. If you are happy to travel and explore the area, and have a car, even if it's only to take you to the railway station, (trains are regular, lots of parking space,) I would recommend staying here. I would suggest it would be rather more difficult without one.
However, do take some time to stay in Dalgetty Bay and walk along the coastal path. It's beautiful. No amount of searches on google maps, or browsing through photographs that other people have taken will give you an idea of how lovely it is. We watched the sun rise every morning, and the sun set each evening, either from the enormous windows in the sitting room, the decking, the garden, or the coastal path.
The sitting room was my favourite part of the house. Bright during the day with an open aspect, cosy at night, curtains drawn, lamps on. Or we would put the cinema screen down and watch movies, from a lap top. (We bought an audio adaptor from Asda, so the sound was great too.)
The master bedroom is very large, with a King Size bed, and has an en-suite bathroom. It's situated at the end of the corridor, just off the dining room. There are then three other good sized double bedrooms, and a family bathroom, (with Jacuzzi bath.). The corridor leads to the dining room, off which is the sitting room, kitchen, hallway to wc and a further large, double bedroom. This room also has a lovely view of the Forth railway Bridge.
Although a holiday home, it is well equipped, and there is everything you need if you stay at home and cook. The kitchen is modern and attractive with a huge cooker, and there is a utility room just off it.
Dalgetty Bay has a local centre, about 1 mile from the property. There's a small Tesco, a Hairdressers, Post Office, Mcolls, a coffee shop and Indian Restaurant and one or two more shops, and a Pub, The Bay, (which we did not use.). A little closer is a nice children's play park.
We ate at The Clubhouse, and enjoyed the atmosphere, friendly service and good food. If you stay here, don't miss an evening at The Peony. Wonderful. Lots of local restaurants offer take-away/delivery service.
We loved it and as we travelled each day, always looked forward to coming 'home.' Thank you Mike.
we originally booked for 5 nights but were so happy most of our party ended staying for 9. The host offered additional nights on a flexible basis as was available though also gave at a discount. Very happy with brilliant value we got. effectively costs over all were at 80% discount to lowest cost hotel in area for our party of 9.
We have already booked to return in the summer & hope to make best of some of Scotland's festivals - cant wait to go back - also planning to visit a few whisky distillery's - cant wait ! The house was very warm - new boiler was also easy to operate. Having SKY HD+ was a real luxury & first holiday home used that has provided this - it did have all sport/fim channels. One of main benefits for our party was the beautiful walk that is available from the garden gate along the Fife coastal path - we made to Aberdour we we had a lunch break one of oldy-worldy pub/restaurants there...... it was a brilliant day. Wifi internet worked very well & was great speed - could stream/download films for journey back home. Also made a very nice day of walk to the local train station (Dalgety Bay ) & train into Edinburgh was really nice to go over the Forth Rail Bridge - which we had a great view of from the house. Dalgety Bay is a very nice place & was handy to have no hassle with parking anywhere & Tesco & Asda near by.......... We mainly cooked but can definitely recommend the Indian, Dalgety Bay Fish Bar & Simons Kitchen Chinese which are walking distance from house. Over all we found the house very spacious & for a party of 9 never felt crowed at all....... we also took hosts advice & made use of a boat trip from Queensferry - a very memorable trip - the host seemed very happy to provide any & all answers to any questions & found very friendly & helpful. The only regret we have is one of taking so many other holidays to hotels & missing a real "home from home" experience. To all of us Dalgety Bay has a good atmosphere every one seemed friendly & had a relaxed & happy feeling when visiting local pubs etc. there are many open/green spaces inc a sandy beach & some swing parks. We only had one problem which was we needed some extra bits for kitchen - glasses/tea pot - we just texted host on 2nd day & he had dropped off the same day. We did make use of the projector huge screen & really was like being at the cinema ! Thanks again for everything ! A brilliant time was had by all & will cherish the memories for a long long time
We stayed at Mikes house for a week while visiting our family and friends. The house was the perfect size for us and our 2 kids and gave us the flexibility to have relatives stay over. Mike was very helpful and arranged a nice new travel cot for our youngest as well high chair for a visit.
The kids loved being able to watch their DVD's supersized on the cinema projector screen.
The views of the bridges are amazing especially when the sunset and at night when they are all lit up.
The house is located very near to local amenities, shops, restaurants and takeaways.
We'll be back next time we are home.
Myself and nine of my buddies stayed here during our golfing trip around Scotland between May 12 and May 19th 2012. The photos on the website really don't do justice to this brilliant, spacious and well laid-out house. The cinema screen was a huge hit with everyone - great touch. The facilities were just great, and the views across the Forth river are spectacular, especially at night when you can see all the way across to Edinburgh. We also enjoyed relaxing on the decking area in the early evenings doing the same.
We used the house as a base to play courses around Fife, and also do some sightseeing in Edinburgh. We also visited the nearby sailing club and enjoyed a great night there. -The band were awesome! It was a local man's 40th and we were made very welcome.
The owner, Mike, is a great guy. We did make some beyond normal requests of him (such as where we could get hold of a barbecue!) and he very kindly drove us to the new ASDA supermarket in Dalgety Bay so we could pick one up AND he stayed to help us cook! -Thanks Mike!
We're going to come back next year to play some more of Scotland's fantastic golf courses and will certainly be back. This place really was a highlight for us.
Myself and 8 other girls visited this beautiful house on the May holiday weekend. We couldn't have asked for a nicer location with stunning gardens and a spectacular view. We made use of the projector screen which felt like we were at the cinema. Dalgety Bay is very relaxing but if your looking for something extra Edinburgh is only a short drive away. The owner was very down to earth, laid back and helped with any enquiries. We are hopefully going to return to this great house in the near future.
Thanks again Mike!
