We spent 2 weeks at Kittiwakes Corner and enjoyed every minute. The flat is very clean, well equipped and very comfortable,it's only few steps to the bus stop and short walk to local shops,harbour and castle. There was lots of information about local activities and attractions in the flat which was very helpful particularly to keep a 13yr old busy, lots of opportunity to golf locally as well. The booking process was very simple with regular communication with Susan the owner and a lovely welcome pack on arrival. We'll be back next year.

I stayed at Kittiewakes Corner for a well deserved, well needed, and peaceful break over the xmas week. It was absolutely lovely. A xmas tree and xmas decorations awaited me....what a fabulous touch! The apartment is beautiful. The local information provided by Susan is second to none. I wouldn't hesitate in returning. I would definitely recommend this apartment. Close to the Harbour, shops and amenities. Can't be faulted!

On the main road and opposite the road to Crail's picturesque harbour. A very comfortable and well equipped flat. Friendly neighbours and within easy reach of all local facilities. Owner very helpful .Would like to return and have already recommended it to friends. The owner has prepared an excellent book of information about the flat and the areas around.
