Stayed for 4 nights as a short family break- Periwinkle has everything you would want or need for a holiday. The place was spotless when we arrived.
The property makes a great base for exploring the East Neuk- pity the weather was not as good as the accomodation! We will return.
My husband, my dad, and I enjoyed 3 nights in Periwinkle in February and we’re really pleased with our choice. It’s on a very nice street just a few moments from the fife coastal path, there is plenty of parking and lots to explore nearby even if St Monans itself doesn’t have a great deal (which in my opinion goes in its favour) other than a small shop, a Chinese takeaway, a cafe.
The house itself is really nicely equipped with all the essentials plus things like teapots, ice cube trays, thermos flask etc which makes it like a home away from home. The fridge had been supplied with milk, and there was a small amount of tea, coffee and sugar plus a few things like salt and pepper. The heating is very efficient so the house is warm and cozy which I particularly appreciated (Scotland in winter brrrrrr). There is a main bedroom with a double bed, second bedroom with two single beds and a third smaller room with bunk beds, and one modern bathroom with bath and shower.
I feel the bathroom would benefit from some sort of shelf where you could place cosmetics etc (there is a small cupboard but I know I’d forget things if I put them in there), but that is just me nitpicking.
The keyless entry system was very convenient and it was good knowing the caretaker of the house lives in the same street.
My dad is already planning a return visit, and I would book again for sure: shame it’s a 5 hour drive from where I live!
Had a wonderful two days in Periwinkle with my wee family. A beautiful and well furnished apartment. A real home from home. Absolutely spotless and everything you need. Will definitely be visiting again.
My husband and I stayed at Ken and Beverley's house for a few days in March 2017. The house itself is lovely - very clean, well furnished and with everything you could need for cooking etc. St Monans is a peaceful town, ideally located for exploring Fife. We would recommend walking along the Fife coastal path - very beautiful!
