Elie was a delightful place to spend a week. There were lots of things to do to keep all three generations of our family happy within the surrounding countryside and coast. Elm House was very convenient; close to the beach and the wonderful ice cream shop! The house was spacious, clean and comfortable and had everything we needed to be able to relax and enjoy our holiday. We found the owner to be very courteous and helpful - even managing to fulfill our request for a week of sunshine!
Just back from a long weekend in Elie staying at The Elms. Five couples. Didn't want to leave. The house is absolutely beautiful. Decorated to high standard. Everything you need and more. Two huge sitting rooms. Two kitchens. One with table big enough to sit the ten of us. Beautiful big garden. Elie itself is wonderful. Lovely pubs, cafes, deli, gift shops. Beach five mins from house. We made the most of everything and had an amazing time. Met owner when we were leaving. Lovely guy who was pleased we had such a great time in his house.

Happy New Year !!.
We recently spent our New Year holiday in Elie... Truly wonderful place, with great walks and pubs, we will definitely be back.
However " The Elms" is less wonderful.
On arrival "The Elms" is admittedly pleasing; however the standard over the house is less so. The rooms range from boutique to down right dingy in a wing that time forgot. We are three families and had to pull straws not to get the worst room !!.
We also had to use pans on the stairs to catch the water leaking through the ceilings every time the shower was used, we ended up not being able to use one shower because of this issue ( not handy in a party of 11 people).
There are also numerous other issues, from a toilet unsafe to use as its not attached properly, broken chairs, fires we couldn't light, broken pans and ...... Exposed electric cables in the Games room !!.
None of the above spoiled our lovely holiday with friends, however the fact the owner has never made contact to address our issues is highly unprofessional.
"Elie Letting " were good in their part, easy to deal with and passed on our concerns to the owner. Thank you !!.
" Elie a little gem on the coast "
Spent a few days recently at The Elms with our family. 11 of us including two teenagers and a baby! Such beautiful accommodation while still keeping a lovely homely feeling. Everything is on hand to ensure a relaxing and fun break for all.
Thank you Robert and Jo for making our stay a memorable one......we look forward to holidaying at The Elms again soon.

We booked The Elms for our usual October break, there were 12 of us, 6 adults and 6 kids. We really couldn't have picked anywhere better, the house itself was amazing, loads of room and everything was to a very high specification. Robert met us on arrival and was very helpful. The location of the house was perfect, 5 min walk to the beach, pub, restaurants and shops, plenty of on street parking. We go away every year and we were all unanimous that this has been the best house we have stayed in.
