Saint Andrews Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 1 bath, with a large living space, pull out sofa and fireplace

Located in the heart of St. Andrews just a few short blocks from the first tee at The Old Course, this flat offers comfort and convenience for exploring the town as well as easy access to the University. Shops, restaurants and markets are just a stroll away from the front door. Historical sites including the cathedral ruins, castle and museums are all within walking distance.

The 65 square meter dwelling has two bedrooms, one bath and a full kitchen and can accommodate 4 adults. The living room features a beautiful bay window, fireplace and comfortable seating for conversation and cuddling up on the couch with a great book. Amenities include wireless internet service, flat-screen TV and stereo. The Kitchen contains all modern appliances and cookware. The flat was completely renovated in 2013.

Why Roberta and Kurt chose Scotland

We fell in love St. Andrews while our daughter was attending University there. The property needed renovation. Roberta saw its potential and brought it back to its original grandeur. It's location is ideal for exploring the town, the historic ruins and walking to the beach, the Old Course, and as several other golf courses in the vicinity.

What makes this apartment unique

Center of town. Proximity to golf courses (easy walk) and University facilities. Full modern kitchen. Beautiful, large bay window. Sleeps 4 adults comfortably. Top of the line bedding.

A treasure

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in a charming flat amidst the commotion of St. Andrews. The property was clean, decorated beautifully and well appointed. Being above a pub we thought would be loud, however, the bedrooms were so quiet and provided a cosy retreat in the evening. We never ran into an issue finding parking and sending out laundry was a breeze. There is a washer in the flat but who wants to do the washing on vacation. The only downside would be that the flat didn't have a small hoover available as we would have liked to vacuum the rug.

Top marks for this oasis for four mere blocks from the old course. We can't wait to return next year.

Very enjoyable visit in St. Andrews

  • 5 of 5

My husband and myself and our son and daughter-in-law thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your elegant flat in St. Andrews. The living room and kitchen area were bright and sunny and very comfortable. The view overlooking the street was excellent. The bedrooms were very comfortable, quiet, and we slept well. The bathroom was modern and spacious. We enjoyed the extra touches like the hair dryer available in the bedroom. The location was very handy to all our activities in St. Andrews and we enjoyed being fairly close to the bus station for side trips (not visible or noticeable from the flat, but just walking to and around the corner and down the block). We did one trip up to Glamis Castle and another to Edinburgh and this made public transit very easy. We appreciated working with you, Roberta, and thank you for the use of your excellent flat.

As rentals go, this place scores an Eagle!

  • 5 of 5

The combination of charm, convenience and service at this amazing flat right in the middle of St. Andrews is outrageous. On our trip of several days, we spent lots of down time in the living room, relaxing on the comfy furniture, and looking out at the streets and passers by through the giant bay window at the unit's front. A modern kitchen lines the far wall, perfect for tending bar or cooking a meal while visiting. The bedrooms are cushy and comfy. Golf, dining, shopping, hiking -- all are just steps away. Seriously, I don't see how you'd beat this place.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the Fraese family St Andrews property for periodic stays over the last few years. My time in their home could not have been more pleasurable. The location is close to everything in town, it is kept immaculately, and genuinely feels like a home rather than rental property. The Fraese's have a deep knowledge of the town, a true interest in providing an enjoyable and comfortable stay, and I cannot recommend them more highly. I look forward to my future trips to St Andrews, not only to enjoy the town, but to feel the warmth of this beautiful home and owners.

Dreamy flat with friendly and professional owners

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of living in this beautiful flat in St. Andrews for a couple of months during my master studies at the University. I loved everything about it! The owners take care of the flat which is renovated and decorated with much taste that creates a 'homy' and inviting vibe. The Fraese family has much love and respect for the history of the flat which can be seen in the way they renovated it and kept the original atmosphere and elements. Its location is one of the many perks of this place - close to the bus station, the golf course, the west sands, and right on the main streets with all shops and cafes. The flat stays cozy in the colder months and it has a quaint (electric) fire place!

All the technicalities of renting were dealt with in a professional and friendly manner. I was very sad to leave the Fraese family's flat in St Andrews since it so quickly became a home to me.

I recommend the owners and the flat with all my heart if you want to have a comfortable and dreamy experience in this ethereal Scottish town.

Charming Flat in St. Andrews

  • 5 of 5

The flat is centrally located, within easy walking distance of all the town's charming restaurants, pubs and shops. We enjoyed everything from a wonderful choral concert at St. Salvator's Chapel to a scotch whiskey "flight" tasting.

The flat itself is thoroughly modern, with lovely furnishings and thoughtful touches to make the stay enjoyable. The owner was also very accommodating and made suggestions as to what to see and do. We hope to visit again soon.
