A lovely facility in a great location! Kirsten is most helpful and responsive.
The apartment is extremely well appointed, comfortable and in a great location. Everything was spotless, and the beds were really comfortable. There's plenty of space for four people, and the two bathrooms are super. You don't have to get in the car everyday to do things. It's an easy stroll to the village, the harbor, the rocks, and the coastal path for longer walks. Proximity to other coastal towns allows for variety when desired. We would go back! Kirsten is a great host and super responsive.
Very comfortable and clean apartment. Comfy beds and everything anyone could want for a pleasant stay. Private parking adds to the attraction of this apartment. Very attractive hanging pictures throughout adds to the charm of this apartment.
A fabulous apartment. Everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay was provided. A lovely seaview so you can watch the fishing boats go out and return. Pittenweem is a lovely little place to stay. We hope to return soon.
We had a wonderful stay at Kittiwake. It felt more like a home than a holiday let, Kirsten has got everything just perfect, (even bathrobes and luxury toiletries!). We went as a couple but the accomodation was spacious and 4 people could fit in comfortably, (especially as there are two bathrooms). This was our third visit to Pittenweem and we love the peace and tranquility of the area, it is so unspoilt. Loved the views of the sea and wildlife from Kittiwake. We were able to take our dog and find that most places along the Fife coast are dog friendly...two pubs, (our favourite place the Larochmhor where the food is lovely and always a warm welcome from Lesley and Alan!), a bistro,and several cafes in Pittenweem alone. The Bank in Anstruther also welcomes dogs, has great staff and a lovely menu. We were lucky several times on evening strolls to see seals in the harbour, (stand and stare at the water, and you will see a head or two pop up regularly!). The coastal path in either direction is lovely to wander along for as long as your legs want to take you! We recommend a stay here and thank Kirsten very much for making Kittiwake so comfortable.
Practically perfect in every way!!
From the moment we opened the door into our Kittiwake apartment we began to enjoy our holiday. Everything you could wish for, good quality furniture, well equipped kitchen, marvellously comfy bed and views from the windows to die for, including seeing dolphins on three separate occasions. What more could anyone want.
Perfect Pittenweem Retreat
The apartment is super cosy, warm, bright and sunny, and very peaceful. Ideal for a relaxing break or as a touring base. It's in a great location right beside the start of the coastal path to walk to Anstruther (20-30 minutes) and a few minutes' walk down to the harbour, with lovely views over the sea. We walked to Anstruther for local shopping and were able to sit outside and enjoy coffee at the harbour as the weather was great. Kirsten has thought of everything that guests might need and was friendly and helpful at all stages of booking. The kitchen is well equipped, the living area is comfortable as are the bedrooms, with nice linens, great fluffy towels, robes and toiletries. We had fantastic weather and enjoyed great coastal and beach walks, and pottering about in local shops and galleries in Pittenweem and Anstruther. We were reluctant to leave as we had such a relaxing weekend - which means we'll definitely be returning.
