A great base for a week in beautiful North Berwick. The views from the spacious front room were a real bonus especially with the lighter evenings, the bedrooms were also pleasingly larger than we had expected and the bunk bed room perfectly ample for 2 young boys ..plus the good size table in the kitchen meant we could host for dinner. The apartment seemed to provide everything we needed with a well stocked kitchen and plenty of books, games and DVDs plus a box of toys - much appreciated as we were restricted to flight luggage. Think the owner was possibly a little distracted this particular week as a few of the things that were obviously usually provided / done were a little sparse and communication a bit lacking on site, though that said all prior communication was very courteous and helpful . Would definitely recommend this property.

I'm glad you found the apartment comfortable and yes, the views and location here are great.
Sorry that you found some things lacking, but if you could possibly provide any details I will do what I can to improve for the future.
We always make sure tea, coffee & sugar jars are topped up, and things like detergents, kitchen cloths, toileteries, toilet rolls, etc. are provided in sufficient quantity. This was done just after cleaning ahead of your stay.
There's also a folder in the flat with a good deal of local information.
That said, any constructive feedback is welcome and I'm always looking to make the guest experience a little better.
best regards,
Torquil.

“Stunning flat, superb location.”
Reviewed 30 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A really spacious, high ceilinged, elegant flat overlooking North Berwick bay. Excellent location, close to shops and beach. North Berwick has a good selection of shops and cafés, a couple of small supermarkets along the main street and a large Tesco a few minutes drive away. Trains to Edinburgh take @30 minutes and leave once an hour. The station is five minutes walk away. We barely used our car, there was so much to do in North Berwick itself, though the leisure pool in Dunbar came in handy on a wet day. The flat was generous and confortable with a well equipped kitchen. Torquil was very helpful.

“Lovely flat, great location”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Lovely, spacious flat. Good sized bedrooms and living room. Clean and well eqipped. At end of main street in North Berwick so easy access to shops, beach and Seabird centre. Parking at front of flat limited to 90mins, but longer parking a couple of mins up the hill. Erratic mobile phone reception ! But wifi.
