Beautiful property in a fantastic location!!
This is such a cute flat and a fantastic location! Having lived in town we knew just where this place was but for those who haven’t, it is just about as central as possible. It’s at the end of Market Street which is the main shopping part of town, within sight of the bus station, and a short walk to both the beach and all of the historic sights.
The flat itself has a lovely design in every room and is fresh and clean. There are two bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with two twins that can be pushed together to make a super king. In addition the couch pulls out! The beds were all quite comfortable and the pillows were fantastic.
There was a lovely selection of snacks, breakfast foods, tea and coffee provided for us which was just the extra touch to make us feel at home.
Overall we had a fantastic stay but I will mention a few negatives. The floors, while lovely are incredibly squeaky. It did put a damper on a good nights sleep. Lastly I would note that the shower is a bit difficult to sep in and out of as the tub is quite high. I would recommend choosing a different location if you have limited mobility or for the owners to put in a grab bar.
Location combined with beautiful, comfortable and modern, efficient furnishings make this an absolute gem of a flat. The decor is so tastefully done from the antiques to the art to the modern kitchen and bath. It’s a precious, confortable, charming apartment. There really could be no finer location when visiting St Andrews.
Great location and nicely decorated
The good - great location where you can walk out your door to all the restaurants and shops on Market Street, 5 minutes walk to St Andrews, etc. The apartment has been nicely renovated and has great beds and bedding.
Downside is the kitchen is tiny if you want to cook. Would recommend the owners get some new frying pans as the ones they have weren’t great (everything stuck) and updated cutlery/utensils. There’s is no washer or dryer but we dropped our laundry around corner but costs you. The TV didn’t work at all during our stay and the TV is tiny - not great for us who wanted to watch it in our downtime. We let the owners know. And overall I think the flat is lovely but a little expensive for what you get....they may have priced it because there was an event that week tho.
Amazing apt and amazing location

All First-class: Location, Comfort, Host, Value
It was a pleasure to enjoy this rare apartment that fully delivers, as strongly positive reviews described -- supported by the best host we've ever dealt with (prompt and pertinent in all responses). By any direct measure -- comfort, coziness, cleanliness, location, bed quality and local manager contacts -- the apartment is as good as any we've experienced in ten rentals. Plus, there was more breakfast food the day we arrived than in any prior experience. That supply lasted our five days and we never had to eat breakfast out once (though I had five cafes on tap from my research). The bar below was zero noise problem, despite our presence during the World Cup mania. Overall, a refreshingly wonderful experience from start to finish
Fantastic Flat in Heart of St Andrews!
Roberta and Kurt and have a fantastic place in the heart of St. Andrews minutes from the Old Course. The flat has great amenities including thoughtfully provided supplies for continental breakfast! Communication was quick and insightful making the entire experience all the more seamless. Would hope to return and highly recommend!
