“There is no better place to stay to enjoy the timelessness of North Berwick”
Reviewed August 17, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Other reviewers have said all that needs to be said about the quality of The Puffins and the friendly demeanor and helpfulness of John, the owner. Having been a visitor to North Berwick on a few occasions now I would add that there is no better place to stay to be able to enjoy the timelessness of the town than the Puffins. To sit and watch the sea, the birds, the ships and the brave Scottish families "sunbathing" on the beach in all weathers is a never ending joy. We spent a week in each Puffin and found them both to be perfect.

“A great spot..A home from Home”
Reviewed July 26, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Rented both Puffin Lookout and Palace for the week with my extended family. Ages ranged from 9yrs to 72yrs. 40 steps or so up to the flats but it is so worth it - a superb view over the beach and Puffin Bay from both flats! These flats are very comfortable and well furnished with all modern conveniences. The kitchens were well equipped. The flats are well maintained light and airy. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms well appointed. We could not fault the location- short walk to town centre with loads of places to eat and drink at. The owner John was very attentive. Would not hesitate in booking again.

“An ideal location for a family holiday”
Reviewed July 8, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This apartment is located right beside the beach. The flat is very comfortable. A real home from home. The owner was very helpful and kept in regular contact in order to make sure our stay was perfect.

“Excellent”
Reviewed June 30, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I stayed with my mother and niece for one week and we all loved the flat. Great location close to the Main Street and overlooking the beach. The beds were super-comfortable and there was the added attraction of a second bathroom. The kitchen was light and very well-equipped which made eating in a pleasure. Very friendly and helpful owner.

“An Excellent Choice”
Reviewed June 22, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Although a dreary stairwell up to the flat, it is so worth it - an excellent view, sunny and comfortable and well furnished with all modern conveniences. We loved our stay and found this an excellent location - with easy walks to town, harbor, and golf, putting and tennis. The owner was not only very pleasant but also extremely helpful and available for any questions we had. We would love to return another time.

“Well-appointed, cozy apartment with a gorgeous view”
Reviewed June 21, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed here for a week with our sons (5 and 9 years old) and my husband's mother (78). We all loved the apartment. It was close to town for easy walking. The beds were comfy. 2 nice bathrooms. Easy on-street parking. Super nice and helpful owner. Easily accessible to lots of fun sights. Some notes: it's 40 steps up to apartment (my mother-in-law counted them) and the skylight in the kids' room let in lots of light but the owner quickly remedied this for us as soon as we asked. We would highly recommend this property.
