Lovely house close to beach and all facilities
We had a lovely time in Elie. The house had everything we needed and the owner Julie was so helpful! The house was spotlessly clean and very comfortable.

Mrs
Our few days in beautiful Elie. Just home from 4 fantastic days in one of our favourite towns in Fife. Our cottage was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Situated in the square it was 2 mins from the beautiful beach, so handy for taking our little whippet down in the morning. Apart from an issue with the hot water and heating which was resolved, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Will definately be back.

This cottage could be so much better.
The cottage is in an excellent location with easy parking. The lounge is spacious but we found the bathroom and double bedroom very cramped. The cottage is in need of a deep clean, there was black mould on window frames and green mould in the bathroom. We saw silver fish in the single bedroom. This is such a shame as with a bit of extra care this house could be so much better. In the present condition, I could not recommend it.

We would refer any prospective guests to the previous responses. The response immediately before this one describes the property as “deceptively large” I can only assume this reviewer understood Greenview is a traditional fisherman’s cottage. As for needing a ‘deep clean’ this is simply not true. The house is professionally cleaned after every guest. The bathroom is quite small but I would again refer the reviewer to the description in the advert. Prospective guests should note the bathroom will be fully refurbished at the end of this season (Nov/Dec 2019) 2020’s guests will be first to enjoy the new bathroom. It still won’t be huge though! The weather was poor during this guest’s stay, so who knows if that helped produce an unrepresentative response. I will post more pictures soon to reassure any prospective guests this is a brilliantly located, good value, comfortable (if as it says slightly ‘rustic’) village house.

Lovely Cottage in Superb Location.
The location is wonderful: on the Elie main street, a stones throw from the shops and a 100 yard walk to the most beautiful beach. Elie and the East Neuk generally is stunning and this cottage is a central location from which to explore.The landlady is very friendly and welcoming and you really feel you are a resident of the place for the time you are there. Outside the property has a lovely traditional look. It is deceptively large inside but retains a cottage feel. It is clean, well decorated and tastefully furnished. Highly recommended.

Traditional Building on Main Street. Beautiful location
This is the second time we have stayed here. It is a lovely traditional building with a modern well furnished interior. Brilliant location near the beach, harbour and on Elie Main Street, where all the amenities are. Lovely village green type space outside with picnic benches. Bus stops within 50 yards. You can see the sea from the top back window. The front view is lovely as well. Quiet road. Elie is one of my favourite places in Scotland where I can truly relax and unwind. The owners provide everything you need and left a bottle of wine and a welcome note. Highly recommended.

A delightful old cottage
This is a real gem of a cottage for up to 5 people. The location in the heart of the East Neuk of Fife is perfect for exploring the delights of the Kingdom of Fife. The cottage itself is full of charm with 3 bedrooms and a full kitchen. Nice open plan lounge and dining room and a powerful shower in the bathroom. We were 3 golfers and this cottage was ideal - only 5 minutes from Elie GC, 15 minutes from Crail GC and 20 minutes to St Andrews. Julie the owner is an excellent host and took care of all our arrangements with a very friendly and warm hospitality. This is a place that I would recommend 100%

Comfortable and cosy pet-friendly cottage
Everything we needed was within walking distance of this lovely cottage. Coffee shop, pubs, newsagent, deli and of course the glorious beach. Very quiet and cosy with a real fire. We hope to return in the summer.

Fantastic base for a beach holiday!
We stayed in the beautiful Greenview Cottage from the 1st of July to the 8th and we really couldn't fault it in any way! Beautiful bottle of wine waiting for us on arrival and all the home comforts you could ask for. Spotless and all beds very comfortable. Based a 2 minute walk from the beautiful beach which was very handy with 2 small children and a beach loving dog!

Characterful cottage
The cottage is in a great location in the centre of Elie. Inside it is comfortable and has some nice decorating touches. The owner was helpful regarding any queries.
