“A beautiful cottage”
Reviewed July 28, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Thank you for a lovely week in your cottage. It had everything and more that we needed with all mod cons. We loved the ping pong table and the tasty treats. A great location, we would love to come back.

“Comfort in Crail”
Reviewed June 17, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My husband and I travelled with our twin toddlers and my parents joined us for a few days.
The house is in a great location, right on the high street and a short walk to the beach and all the amenities which Crail offers. The decor is bright and modern, but sympathetic to the building. The beds were really comfortable and blackout blinds in each rooms made for a good night's sleep.
We really enjoyed being on the high street and seeing people come and go, the food festival started the day after we left and there was bunting up in the streets. We managed to park easily wither in front of the house or in the parking bays behind it. The rooms were spacious and well-equipped (though more coat hangers would be helpful) and the slide and sand pit were put to good use during our week. We were really sad to leave and would love to return.

“Lovely accommodations in a very small town setting.”
Reviewed July 21, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The 4 of us stayed at Casa Gisella during the Open Championship week and found the rental to be just as expected. Plenty of room with all the benefits of a fully equipped residence. Crail is a very small seaside town but has just enough amenities that make any holiday experience pleasant. The home itself was ready in advance of the traditional time, as we arrived earlier than expected. It was nicely decorated, clean and roomy for 4 adults. Plenty of parking at the rear. Thanks to Owen for the check-in treats!

We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Gisella which is decorated beautifully and has all the amenities you could hope for. Only a few minutes walk from the harbour! :)

“A Home From Home”
Reviewed June 22, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My husband, my two and a half year old son, and myself have just returned from a wonderful weeks stay at Casa Giselle. We truly felt so at home in this fantastic house. Everything in the property was of a very high standard from kitchen appliances to the beds. We loved the beautiful open fire in the evenings and the enclosed garden meant we didn't have to worry about our son. The house also has a great lay out and loads of space. Crail itself is quiet and peaceful. The harbour area and beach are especially beautiful especially early in the morning or late in the evening. We found lots of lovely places for lunch in East Neuk villages and the amazing Ardross Farm Shop is well worth a visit. We anticipate East Neuk and Casa Gisella having return visits from us. A really super holiday.
