Description from owner
Seascape is superbly situated at the foot of Nethergate only yards from the picturesque Kinghorn beach and it's historic harbour. It is close to The Fife Coastal Path route with spectacular views across the Firth of Forth, and within a short walking distance to the mainline railway station for Edinburgh, Perth and Inverness.
This unusual property has recently been refurbished to an excellent standard and is a great place to escape and unwind at any time of the year.
Seascape is a very bright self contained one bedroom property on two levels. The original building dates back to the 17h century but was converted into four apartments in the early eighties. All windows are south facing with sea views framed by the impressive railway viaduct built in 1847.
The main entrance is on the first floor level, which comprises :
A spacious sitting room with dining area, smart TV, DVD and free WI FI.
A compact, fully equipped modern kitchen including washing machine, tumble dryer, and microwave.
A contemporary bathroom with overhead shower.
From the sitting room there is a wooden stairway leading to the ground level which comprises :
A large double bedroom, lots of cupboard space, small, stylish en suite toilet, with shower and French door leading to ground level.
By the main entrance is an attractive sheltered sunny deck ideal for morning coffee or evening drinks.
Outside at ground level there is secure storage space for golf clubs, trolleys
( electricity for recharging batteries) bikes, kayaks, sailboards etc.

“Comfortable and good value for money”
The apartment was very clean and comfortable and had all the facilities you could reasonably expect for the price. There were some nice touches too like a bottle of wine and milk in the fridge. Communication with the owner was prompt and efficient. The location was fine, with bus stops and the railway station in easy reach.
Response from the owner Thank you Stephen for your kind and fair review, greatly appreciated. Barbara on behalf of Ruby

Okay, difficult one this! The apartment was spotless, and the living/dining room and upstairs bathroom were a reasonable size. The kitchen is tiny but serviceable. The bedroom is, again, a reasonable… More
Response from the owner I am so sorry you were so disappointed with both Kinghorn and Seascape. Thank you for pointing out a problem with the bed, this has been rectified. I can appreciate larger people might find the downstairs shower small, but there is also a good sized family bathroom with both bath and shower. Many visitors have enjoyed the ‘quaintness’ of Seascape, and on more than one occasion people have remarked on the scenic view of the sea framed by the Victorian railway arches, which are not as close as has lbeen suggested. Since we began holiday rentals with this property we have had seventeen 5* reviews and twelve 4* reviews on TripAdvisor Plus twenty three 5* reviews on another site we use. Although disappointed we appreciate your comments. Barbara
