Guestbook comments from the owner

This is one of the places that makes staying in someones home so great - it's the only way you could stay in a house this cool. It's just across the street from the ocean, and almost every window looks out onto the beach. The house itself is old and creaky and filled with beautiful furniture and objects from all round the world. Great place.

Seafront Family House with Oodles of Charm

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 4 staying for a late October weekend, which was really enjoyable, so I can only imagine how much fun a family with young children would have. Ideal for babies or over fives as the stairs would be tricky with toddlers.

Sue was wonderful to communicate with and we wanted for nothing.

Dunbar is an interesting town with good beaches, and a thriving high street. We hope to come back with kids in tow!

Beautiful House, Perfect View

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for such an easy and trouble free stay.

We stayed in the house only to sleep but wished it could've been for longer and will certainly consider booking it again if we need more room the next time we visit family in Dunbar.

There was plenty of space and we just wished we could've enjoyed it for longer.

Thanks again

We stayed here for a week in early June 2012, with 2 children and grandparents in tow. The cottage was everything the ad said and more. Amazing character and charm, cozy and had all the amenities we needed. Sue was extremely helpful and gave us great advice on the town and area. We had a hard time leaving, and will definately be back!! The garden was used constantly for "fighting pirates". Perfect for families with children.

Felt like home as soon as we walked through door

  • 5 of 5

My Husband, Mom and three children felt at home as soon as we walked through the door. The house is lovely and the sea views magnificent! We were lulled to sleep each night by the sound of the sea.

Sue and her daughter were brilliant and took care of everything we needed.

We could walk everywhere and it was a quick and easy journey to Edinburgh.

The children had fun and we felt so relaxed here.

We will be back!
