Awesome and great location!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 8 days in Feb 2014 to visit our son and the place was perfect. Location was awesome! We enjoyed our morning walks into town for our coffee. The place had a very cozy feel and was furnished with everything you need. Have to visit the Gondola Italian Restaurant just a few blocks down the street near the wont be disapointed. Absolutely the BEST food!!! The owner was very good in communicating with us prior to our trip and we contacted him during oiur stay once as we had a problem with the TV and he was very prompt and took care of things in an instant. Definately would recommend and stay here again.

Holiday Kiirkcaldily

  • 4 of 5

The rate was based on our vote among all three members of the family : the son (aged 13) said Good because he found the space is not big enough, me and my wife have all rated it excellent.

The entire area though not spacious it is clean, cozy and decent enough for a family of four with luxury and handy of internet from VirginMedia and house PC. The biggest advantages is its central location but far away from busy road so to enjoy the early morning quietness however only a 5 - 10 minutes walking distance to all the major amenities such as parks, supermarket, rail station, local theater, museums and library. The use of this as a base and to access to St Andrews, Edinburgh and some of the fishing villages are highly recommended, Other than the cold and unpredictable weather in Scotland, we found our stay was one of the most memorable and enjoyable holidays.

Some points maybe useful for other holiday makers :

1) The disposal collection is on Wednesday morning and all dwellers should move the dust bin outside and place it on the pavement easy to access for environmental workers.

2) The road side parking you should avoid using the boxed area which are designated for disabled.

nice and comfortable - schön und gemütlich

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Trevor,

we enjoyed our stay.

Special thanks for Your detailed instructions on the technical equipment like TV and water/heating sytem. Everything we've used worked fine, Internet, tv, toaster, fridge, water....

There was always a parking space on the road in front.

Rooms are clean, comfortable and cosy.

We also enjoyed the layed-back style of the garden, good for a morning coffee, when weather is fine.

Train and bus stations are within walking range. (last train back from Edinburgh about 23:00)

Kirkcaldy is a perfect base for excursions in the kingdom of fife area, and offers some own jewels as well. Restaurants, pubs, parks, castle, beach, even bring in service, everything available and worth your time.

We really had a great time there.

Thanks so much,

Schön aber auch abseits von den Highlights

  • 4 of 5

Als Ausgangsort für unseren 1. Schottlandbesuch ausgesucht, hatten wir die Straßen und Entfernungen etwas unterschätzt.

Trotzdem war es nur 1 Autostunde von Edinburgh entfernt. Am Ende war Kirkcaldy ein schmuckes Städtchen mit imposanter Nordseestrandpromenade, dass vom Touristenstrom noch verschont wird. Und gut geplant kamen wir bis in die Highlands, nach Glasgow und auch in eine Whiskydestillerie. Und natürlich sahen wir Schlösser, Burgen und Ruinen.

Die Wohnung ist auf den ersten Blick genau wie beschrieben und auf den Fotos zu sehen. Nur dass nicht alles mehr so ganz neu ist. Es ist ein renoviertes Haus mit Dielenböden, die doch bei jedem Schritt knarren. Für uns kein Problem, da wir selbst in einem alten Haus wohnen.

Alle angegebenen Geräte sind ebenfalls vorhanden, auch das WLAN war voll funktionsfähig. Allerdings könnte man die Waschmaschine nur bedienen, wenn man ein Kabel quer durch die Küche verlegt. Wir benutzten die Maschine jedoch nicht. Wir wollten nur Urlaub machen.

Unseren Vermieter bekamen wir nicht zu Gesicht. Jedoch löste er ein Duschproblem umgehend und zu unserer vollsten Zufriedenheit.

Was uns sonst positiv überraschte, die berüchtigte Mückenplage ereilte uns in Kirkcaldy nicht. Erst in den Highlands und am Loch Lomond bekamen wir einen kleinen Eindruck davon, was einen erwarten kann. Unsere Mückenmittel blieben jedenfalls fast ungenutzt während unseres Aufenthaltes.

Insgesamt waren wir jedoch sehr zufrieden mit unserem Domizil, ein gar nicht so schlechter Ort für einen ersten Besuch in Schottland. Über Restaurants und Pubs hatten wir uns vorab informiert. Bei den zwei häufiger bewerteten Pubs in der Einkaufsstraße , kamen wir allerdings zur genau gegensätzlichen Bewertung zur Allgemeinheit. Und das beste Essen fanden wir in den indischen Restaurants, die häufig anzutreffen sind.

Schottland ist auf jeden Fall eine oder auch mehrere Reisen wert!
