“Beyond perfect! Absolute paradise by the sea in Scotland!”
Reviewed 28 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017
person found this review helpful

My only regret with our stay at The Beach Apartment was that it was only for one night! But even if you are travelling a long way for just one night, it is more than worth it! We had booked with booking.com and all communication was excellent, helpful and quick. We became dog owners after booking, so had to get in touch to make necessary arrangements, and Stacey was very helpful indeed.

The apartment is above a superb ice cream parlour (which our kids absolutely loved - and they even do doggy ice creams!), so you enter at the back, up some quite steep stairs at the back of the shop. It all added to the mystery and excitement, especially for the kids! Then once inside, just wow! The apartment is simply beautiful, with absolutely everything you would possibly need there for you. I so wish we had been staying longer as it would be wonderful to make use of the fabulously equipped kitchen, and spend even more hours watch tv in the huge bathtub, or enjoying the decor and furniture of the main rooms!

Whilst advertised as room only rate, it really should be bed and breakfast, as the fridge was stocked with yogurts, cheese, butter, cold meat, pate, milk, orange juice, and then there was bread and scotch pastries, along with lovely coffee and a selection of different teas. We had a superb, luxury breakfast - all provided!

All little extras had been thought of. There was a selection of drinks to purchase if you wished (we'd come prepared, but what a lovely touch if not!), and every type of glass so you could celebrate in style! The toiletries in the bathroom were beautiful - all adding to the touch of luxury.

We had been apprehensive about parking beforehand, as we were arriving on a Saturday afternoon, towards the end of July, so peak season. But we managed to park in front of the apartment no problem - there was always a few spaces. So not a problem at all.

The view from the apartment is second to none - and watching the sunrise was beautiful first thing in the morning.

The ice cream shop below, and the fish and chip shop next door, both had huge (and I mean huge) queues at various points throughout the day and evening - but we can vouch that both are worth the queues. We enjoyed fish and chips on the beach, which was lovely! Nearby there is loads to do for all ages. The beach is dog friendly, so we had a great time with our pup - and she loved the apartment and the space!

The kids loved the guest bedroom, with it's secret TV hidden in the wardrobe!

Everything was absolutely perfect! I just wish it wasn't so far away, as we'd love to return, and if ever in Scotland again, we will definitely include a few days in Stonehaven so that we can stay again. Thank you very much for a wonderful night!

“Great apartment, in beautiful location, ocean-coastline”
Reviewed 17 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Great apartment...beautifully decorated in a quirky way. See and hear the ocean.... So close to it ...amazing! Everything you need for self- served apartment, including washer and dryer. The walk from the apartment to Dunnotar was beautiful, along the coastline and took 50 minutes.... Highly recommend.
Easy access to apartment... Arrived early on train, but able to drop off luggage. Glad we took a taxi from station since would have been a bit of a walk with luggage.

Totally enjoyed it with the kids!

This is an incredible place, just beautiful! We stayed for one night with our dog. Lovely little touches everywhere and groceries left for us. Girls and chap in the shop downstairs very helpful and email communication very efficient. We woke up to the most magnificent sunrise over the sea - stunning! Wish we could've stayed longer, just loved it - we will be back!

“Special Find”
Reviewed 4 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

What can I say that hasn't already been said, The Beach Apartment is just amazing. Such a gem. I stayed with my partner and our 1 year old and could not have been more comfortable. The apartment offers everything that you could want from a holiday rental and then some. The décor is very good and different and the bathroom is very well done. The fact that the sea is literally right outside the window makes it even better. The fact that it is above a sweet/ice cream shop just tops it off, together with the best fish and chips I've had right on the door staff. Everyone connected to the apartment were friendly and very helpful. What are you waiting for, book this special rental right now.
