Outstanding Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment property is outstanding. Stayed here with 2 other couples for a week and we hope to return in the near future. It is a great property with all the amenities of being home. Close to the Old Course and right in the heart of the village. Every where you walked you feel the spirit of St. Andrews. Just a great place to stay. Thank you June and Colin

Simply Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good about is property and its owners/managers. There was literally no thoughtful detail overlooked -- from the linens, towels (warmed!), beds (one of the best I've ever slept in) to the furnishings and bathroom goodies -- everything was spot on. We were given a warm welcome and such a complete book on how everything worked that there were literally no unanswered questions. In our opinion, this property sets the standard for homes away from home!

This flat is simply amazing made our stay with family and friends totally magical. The flat had everything you could think of and then some. Perfect for entertaining and hosting parties. The main kitchen is a chef's dream and the back garden is something out of a fairy tale. A thoroughly enjoyed stay!

Great location and luxe accomodations!!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment could not be any better. Quiet street while still being a short walk from the Old Course, the Jigger Inn, and the Dunvegan!! High end furnishings, space galore, beautiful outdoor space and the replica road hole bunker!! What a great experience! I recommend this proerty to families as well as golfers!! The apartment can easily acommodate 8 golfers of the male variety while being appropriate for 3 or 4 couples (which was our case). Just the best!!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

June & Colin made our visit to St. Andrews truly wonderful! The home is beautiful with room for many on two different levels for lots of privacy. The kitchens and living areas were great and the backyard terrace and putting hole made it even more fun. They have thought of everything in case you forgot anything! Highly recommend - great location two blocks from shops and restaurants and a few blocks from golf too. Thank you!
