Shona was an incredibly gracious, conscientious host from the moment we agreed to stay at Scribbles. The flat is gorgeous, modern, light, and impeccably designed and decorated. It was evident upon entering the flat that Shona has put much time and effort into anticipating, meeting, and exceeding the needs and wants of her guests, from the handwritten card, cake, wine, and flowers that she set out for our arrival, to the layout of the kitchen and bathroom, and her provision of various extra little amenities that demonstrated her keen desire for us to feel at home while staying. The central location of the flat is perfect for seeing any and all parts of St. Andrews, which offers a lot of history and natural beauty, yet we found ourselves taking long, leisurely breakfasts and returning to Scribbles in the afternoon to relax and read, owing simply to the wonderful space that Shona has created. Any questions we had for her she answered promptly and thoroughly. My husband and I cannot recommend this property more highly, and when we are in St. Andrews in the future we will absolutely seek to stay here again. Thank you Shona!
Many thanks for your review and your kind words. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Scribbles and would love to welcome you back again in the future. Kind regards, Shona

What a find this place is! It is so centrally located - literally in the heart of St Andrews. Very comfortable and ideal for 2 people. The added extras just put the finishing touch to this smart home - very welcoming indeed! Thanks for the stay here. It was the perfect place to stay for a get-away, relaxing weekend!
Many thanks for your review. I am so pleased that you enjoyed you weekend at Scribbles. I would love to welcome you back again in the future. Kind regards, Shona

I was in St. Andrew's on business but this apartment made my stay very enjoyable. Although very central and convenient for restaurants, shops etc., it was quiet and relaxing after a hard day. I would love to return as a holidaymaker and the addition of the use of spa facilities for a small cost would definitely tempt me. I stayed for one month and was sad to leave as it felt very homely.
Many thanks for your review. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Scribbles. I hope to welcome you back again in the future. Kind regards, Shona

Excellent organisation before our visit and everything went well when we arrived The apartment was beautiful,close to all amenities and warm.We were spoiled for choice in St andrews which is full of wonderful cafés and restaurants as well as museums, historical buildings and of course the beaches.
We loved the fact that the kitchen was so well appointed.The cupboards and drawers had everything you could ever need.The bunch of flowers was a lovely touch.
Thank you for your review. I am glad you had a good stay, despite the changeable spring weather!

“New Parents - Perfect First Holiday!”
Left on 03/27/2014 for a stay in March 2014 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Mar 27, 2014Stayed Mar 2014
Nervous new parents with a 9 week old baby desperately looking for a relaxing stress-free break.. Heart of St. Andrews definitely delivered that. From the booking to the departure, everything was excellent. The owner Shona clearly cares about her guests, we had everything we could possibly want and the finishing touches are very well delivered. A bottle of wine and flowers greet you as you open the door and white fluffy towels and robes make you feel as if you are in a top-notch hotel. The central location is really great with unrestricted parking outside and you can easily walk to everything from the property - beach, abbey, harbour and the town etc.The sun shone all weekend as well! Forgan's is a must if you are looking for a great child-friendly place to eat. Thanks to Shona and the Heart of St andrews team. Will definitely be back.
Many thanks, Cathy. It was a pleasure hosting you at Scribbles once again. Kind regards, Shona

“Rental is just perfect, cute as a button.”

We arrived on a dark, dismal February night but nothing could detract from arriving at the courtyard where Scribbles is. Once in you are greeted by a card from Shona welcoming you, a little book with loads of information plus folder of further details you may need. There was a vase of flowers on the counter plus coffee available for use on coffee machine and best of for us a bottle of wine chilling in the fridge. Now that's a welcome.
It is small but perfectly formed and immaculate. There is something about the flat that is just so welcoming and you feel right at home.
We will most definitely be back but with friends which will mean using Shona's other property upstairs but I've no doubt it will be just as perfect and she allows dogs there, another winning point from me.
If you are a couple looking for somewhere in St andrews that will give you exactly what you want and at a very reasonable price you cannot go wrong here.
