“Great house, perfect for what we wanted.”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The house owners, although we never actually met, seemed lovely and really helpful. House was clean and comfortable and homely. It is situated on the High Street and you can watch the world pass by as you sit in the dining room or as you sit at the small table and 2 chairs provided outside. The nearby local residents were really friendly and always had a chat if we were outside the house. We had a lovely time in Crail, it is a beautiful place, and would highly recommend a stay at Caiplie House. There were 11 adults, three children and a dog in our group and the house was plenty big enough for all of us and it was nice to be able to all sit at one table for meals. Overall, it was a fab holiday and a fab house.

“Great group accommodation”
Reviewed 10 March 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We had a great time staying at Caiplie House with a group of friends which included a number of small children. The kitchen in particular is fab- very well equipped with a nice big table. The rooms are very comfortable with plenty of space. All in all a lovely self-catering place, very close to the beach, in a beautiful part of Fife.

“If you're staying in Crail stay here!”
Reviewed 19 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

stayed here for 2 nights this week with my family. It's a beautiful house , heated well with loads of facilities. It's decorated lovely and it's great how every room has a bathroom apart from the top right but everything else makes up for it. Would stay here again definitely.

Just back from Crail Food Festival & stayed in Caiplie House self catering. Wonderful place, clean & very spacious. 10 of us went and will all be rushing back next year. Highly recommended as a good place to stay.

“Excellent Self Catering Accomodation”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

people found this review helpful

We stayed in Caiplie House in May 2014. The house is situated in the High St of the picturesque village of Crail. On arrival we were met by the owners representative who showed us round the house and instructed us on using the facilities. The owners also phoned to greet us and told us a welcome pack of breakfast food was waiting at the local butcher just across the road. A much appreciated gesture, as the bacon etc was wonderful.

The house was as advertised - it was clean and had all modern facilities, a large kitchen and two public rooms. Beds were comfortable and each room had en suite bathrooms in which the showers were electric and in good condition. Each room also had a TV.

All in all, excellent accomodation for the price, in a lovely harbour village. I would have no problem recommending to friends and family and other Tripadvisor users.
