“Home from home”
Reviewed 23 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Holidayed here with husband, son and parents on a trip home from Australia. The house was so homely, beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you needed for a relaxing break. Beds were so comfortable, view from our attic room was amazing, slept with the curtains open to enjoy the sunrise and sunset. Personal touches of complimentary bottle of prosecco, Scottish tunnock biscuits was so thoughtful and lovely. The house did not disappoint, was lovely and quiet, comfortable and nice to return to after a day exploring the local area. Really hope to return again sometime very soon. Owner was an absolute delight to deal with.

Thank you for leaving such a touching review! We agree with you that the views over the sea are fabulous … both sunrise and sunset are beautiful times to watch the light and the colours change. If you are lucky enough to stay during a full moon the seascape captures the moonlight and it’s gorgeous to watch the boats bobbing back into the harbour with their lights twinkling! I am so pleased that your homecoming trip from Australia didn’t disappoint … We believe holiday memories are the most precious and it would be our pleasure to welcome you back on another occasion. Wx

Thank you for leaving a review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your family gathering at Kittiwake. The house is spacious enough to accommodate a large family easily, and we take pride in making it feel like a wee home from home … a place for families to enjoy spending time together away from the busy-ness of the world. We are totally convinced time slows down in St Monans! Perhaps you will be able to retreat to Kittiwake again in future and feel the benefit of spending time together at the coast! We’d love to welcome you back! Wx

Thank you for leaving this review. Everyone deserves a little bit of spoiling now and again and even more so if you are escaping the busy pace of life for a week or a weekend! I know you stayed at Kittiwake to meet up with old friends … Kittiwake caters for groups, families and couples comfortably. The sun is at the front of the house early in the morning during spring and summer (perfect for morning coffee and sea air!) and by afternoon the courtyard at the rear of the house is bathed in sunshine too! I am really pleased you used the local bus service which goes through all the coastal villages and up to St Andrews. A good old-fashioned day oot on the bus! You are always welcome at Kittiwake when you need to slow down, relax and be with friends or family, Wx

“Spacious, full of character, brilliant views and just "magic"!”
Reviewed 29 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

A wonderful relaxing experience from start to finish. Kittiwake is a warm, traditional house, full of character but with all mod cons. It is decorated and furnished in a comfortable and tasteful manner throughout. The welcoming bottle of Prosecco and jar of tea cakes was the icing on the cake!
We enjoyed beautiful walks (and some jogs) along the coastal paths to Pittenweem, Anstruther and Elie. Our young grandchildren spent their time either crab hunting on the beach, at the harbour, in the play park or back at Kittiwake eating yet another snack.
We had such a wonderful time that we are already planning our return visit.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We aim to cater for all members of a family because we know it can help to ensure a happy holiday! Kittiwake House is perfectly located to take advantage of the play park at the top of the road, the harbour at the bottom of the road, and just a short walk along the sea front to the medieval church and the ruined castle – and there’s also a windmill too! We are so pleased you had a great time together with your family and grandchildren … we would be delighted if Kittiwake becomes part of your family’s traditional holiday home from home! Wx
