person found this review helpful

I spent 5 nights here in March and couldn't have asked for a better base as I went exploring.

The flat was very comfortable and a gorgeous bed. Jay was so welcoming and fab.

This was genuinely a home away from home and I'll definitely be back!

Thanks!

“Home away from home - lovely stay!”
Reviewed 28 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Very pleasantly surprised by this lovely little studio flat in Alva. Jay welcomed us upon arrival at the flat and showed us around - she had even purchased some basics for the fridge which we really appreciated as we had arrived late on in the day.The flat was very clean and well kept with everything we could have needed over a long weekend. We found plenty to do in the immediate area - the high street provided ample amenities aswell as there being plenty to explore in surrounding areas. Would highly recommend.

“great spot and easy parking”
Reviewed 17 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We travelled over central Scotland on our holiday. This clean and tidy apartment is perfectly situated, with easy access to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Stirling, the Wallace Monument and the Falkirk wheel. We were recommended to dine at The Cambus Tea room. Best steak pies and sirlion steaks 5 minutes from the apartment by car.
The bed was comfy and great to have own washing/drying machine. The modern TV has plenty of channels for these odd rainy days Scotland has.
Very pleasant and helpful owner and we recommend the apartment as great value for money.
