From your bedroom windows view all three beaches, the golf courses, the Castle and the Cathedral....

The property has been completely redeveloped externally and internally, and we're sure you'll love our rooms tastefully designed to complement the stunning sea views. The open plan 'manhattan loft' is our feature area - a first floor lounge and kitchen/diner which gives you elevated views from the Cathedral at the rear to the beaches and Castle out front. We have three bedrooms (one double and two twins) which will sleep up to six people, three bath/shower rooms, and in addition a garden room/snug (with a sofa bed). Our maximum occupancy is six people. Please note, as our townhouse has an open plan middle floor, it is not possible to put stair-gates on for very young children. Luxury Sanctuary Spa shower gel and body lotions provided, along with towels and bed linen. From your doorstep walk around the many restaurants, cafes and bars of the bustling medieval Scottish coastal town of St Andrews. Visit the many attractions of the town, including golf courses, cycle tracks, beaches, leisure centre, parks, botanical gardens, theatre, and museums. Not to mention the distilleries and brewery!

Interaction with guests
Fraser and Ann are always available to answer any questions you may have. We are a family from Scotland, and we feel we have created a lovely and amazing holiday home, so good that we really enjoy sharing it with others who like visiting St Andrews by the sea We completely redesigned the property, with an open plan first floor offering elevated views over the ocean. It has an urban feel to the feature space, our 'Manhattan loft' - very contemporary and a great place to spend special time socialising with your family and friends. We don't do twee, so we like to think the rest of the house is seaside waterfront styling but with class!! It's uniqueness really mainly evolves around the direct views over the Castle, Cathedral and beaches.

About the neighbourhood
thebeachhouse is situated at the east end of North Street, between the Cathedral and the Castle. The front of the property is at the east end of the Scores, overlooking the waterfront. This is a conservation area, and we are surrounded by many listed buildings, an area with a rich heritage and consequently there are many interesting things to do on our doorstep. The Fife coastal path is at the front of the property, and directly outside is a common stop for visitors looking over the bay and admiring the Castle!
Getting around
You can pretty much walk everywhere. Or park in lane behind house, and you can drive to golf courses in Fife, outside St Andrews. Dundee is around 20 mins drive by car, and Edinburgh around 1 hour 20 mins.
