About The Owner

I am married to Gary and I am a mum to three grown up boys. I am also a part time Nursery teacher. We have spent many lovely holidays on the Fife coast, especially Lower Largo and the East Neuk of Fife and know the area well

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Lower Largo

We fell in love with this house and its large bay windows which give superb panoramic views of the sea. Its location is second to none.... the joy of stepping out the back door onto the beach has allowed us to spend lazy summer days watching the sailing boats and walking along the coast and equally during the winter months enjoying the stormy sea from the warmth of the conservatory.

What makes this house unique

With its 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and upstairs large den room it is the perfect home to meet up with friends and gather families together.

Perfect house for a beach holiday in Fife

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect choice for our annual 3 generation holiday. It is exceptionally comfortable and well equipped, with plenty of space inside and out for a family holiday.

We had beautiful hot sunny weather, with a sea breeze all week,so the children were happy to play on the beach or in the garden. The fact that the house is right on the beach, which was always quiet, is a huge bonus. Plenty of comfortable chairs are provided for relaxing in the garden and we were able to eat outside most of the time.

Lower Largo is a charming village with a hotel, pub and well stocked local shop. It is in an ideal position for touring the East Neuk of Fife and beyond, with opportunities for walking, cycling, golf, fishing etc.

The children enjoyed the toys and games in the house and also movie night in the upstairs den.

We particularly liked all the nautical themed items in the house and felt very at home. We were all sorry to leave and agreed that we had enjoyed our best holiday ever.

Great holiday, great house

  • 5 of 5

We booked The Haven for our annual 'aunties and uncles take the niblings to the beach' holiday. The house was perfectly located and equipped, with lots of space for everyone. The kids snorkelled, swam and played on the beach, and when we couldn't keep them away from the X-box any longer, there was a great games room in the attic where they could eat too many sweeties without us knowing. We had a great holiday with lovely weather, and will definitely be back. Thanks Lisa for sharing your lovely home with us.

Beautiful beach house

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed, really well equipped, spacious, clean, warm and comfortable. Had a lovely week with direct access to the beach (struggled to drag the children away) and a lovely suntrap of a garden so we didn't all have to get covered in sand. The village was lovely with a very quiet beach and direct access to the coastal path and disused railway line and the weather was kind. Very calm and relaxing week and wouldn't hesitate to go back to the house again.

Great place to explore

  • 5 of 5

We were an extended family group with 2 children staying for a week. The house was lovely - right on the beach. Well equipped and very comfortable. There are plenty of places to explore nearby and you are only just over an hour from Edinburgh. Nearby Elie is beautiful with good restaurants.

The hotel in the village was very accommodating when we arrived late and we had a nice meal there.

Couple of things about the house. The room with the twin beds is only really suitable for kids as the beds are springy and uncomfortable. The bathroom next to the twin could do with a mirror - tricky to shave!

There is very limited parking close to the house , although this wasn't really a problem , we managed to park in the disabled bay outside to load and unload and then used the car park at the end of the village which was safe and only a short walk back to the house (along the beach if the tide is out)

All in all we had a lovely week in a lovely house. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review Clare- glad you had a lovely time. We've since replaced the mirror in the bathroom which had been broken by the previous guests! Hope you have a good summer

A fantastic location for a family gathering of 10 from 2 to 94.

  • 5 of 5

The house is well equiped with everything you need from kitchen to buckets and spades on the beach. The bedrooms are large and the beds comfy. Fab views of the sea from the front bedrooms. Downstairs bedroom and shower room good for great granny. Lots of hot water and central heating. We would all go back.
