We were visiting family in nearby Alloa and the flat was ideally situated. Lawrence the owner met us on arrival and was very helpful and friendly.
The flat is very well equipped and has lots of extras especially for families like wifi, wii games system , DVD s board games etc. We appreciated the generous size of TV screen as my husband is partially sighted.
The kitchen is very well equipped and the beds are comfy. The lounge and dining area is beautifully furnished.
Our only problem was the outside steps up to the flat, they are fine for fit people but my husband was very nervous especially with his sight problems. There is a good solid handrail and it was no problem for me.
The flat is on the Main Street in Alva so plenty of shops and food outlets. Parking was a problem sometimes not a good idea to park at the back unless you are up and out early in the mornings as the delivery vans and lorries back up for the shops and can block the cars in. We parked on the road and moved the car nearer later in the evening .
I would recommend the flat.

I have stayed at this apartment twice now and cannot fault it. It met every needs for myself and my mother, has the homely feeling as well defenatly better than any hotel and b&b I have stayed in and if you want your own private space this is where to be. There are plenty of shops around the town of Alva to meet your needs from inconvenient stores to take-aways. If you are wanting to go on shopping trips then Stirling is only a 10 to 15 minute drive just perfect. I found the people very friendly to and I will be coming back for a stay in the future. .
Agree with previous reviews. This may be the best equipped holiday rental we have ever had. Very comfortable flat and the location for visiting the sights of Central Scotland could hardly have been better. Alva itself for a small place has an incredible range of eating/shopping options. Note for golfers: Several cheap, charming, quaint and quirky courses to play within a 5k radius.
The apartment has all mod cons & Sky Plus TV. Central location on main road did mean you heard noise from local revellers on Friday & Sat night. It is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Parking on road outside or to rear. Owner provided fresh fruit , dishwasher tablets etc recommended
Lawrence had it all in this apartment it was like a home from home, The Wii was a great thing to have as the boys were on it every chance they got, we woul mod definataly go back as it all just could not have been better.
A bright flat well looked after, very comfortable as well as clean. The owner is very friendly, well organised, straightforward. Our stay was absolutely trouble-free. We very much enjoyed being there and would certainly book the flat again.
Had a lovely stay in this spacious apartment. Has all the mod cons and is located right in the centre of town. I travel to Scotland regularly and it's great to be able to rent a place in alva.
Owner was lovely... Nothing was a problem. Flat has everything you need. Bed is super comfy!!
Will definitely be back again.
