September 2020

Absolutely perfect host, flexible, friendly and welcoming. Lovely place in the heart of St Andrew. Super clean and cosy place feeling like being at home. Can’t wait to come back again! Thank you

June 2022

For four golfers being a 5 minute walk to the Old Course was ideal. Very nice Unit that, while in a lower level, manages to feel light and airy with large windows. Would stay again.

June 2023

Beautiful apartment, close to St. Andrews medical campus and the Old Course. 2 of 3 bedrooms are spacious. All 3 are comfortable and well appointed. Nice large kitchen and living room. We were very happy here.

May 2024

Great place to stay for a golf week! Just a couple blocks away from the old course!

May 2024

Exactly as advertised – lovely place, great location, private, quiet, comfortable, and very spacious. Nice shared spaces for gathering in the large kitchen and sitting room. Walkable to all of St Andrews. It is managed very professionally. We had a great time and would happily stay there again.
