Sehr schöne Ferienwohnung mit Strandblick
By Anton S on 05-Jan-2017
Gemütliche Ferienwohnung mit sehr guter Lage am Rande des Ortszentrums. 5min Gehzeit zum Strand oder zum Zug mit nur 30min Fahrzeit nach Edinburgh. Sehr freundlicher Kontakt mit Besitzer. Wir waren über Weihnachten da und uns hat ein großes Willkommenspaket erwartet. Auch waren einige Grundlebensmittel frisch vorhanden. Kann man nur weiterempfehlen.
Fabulous apartment with the wow factor
By Susan A. Said... 5 Jan 2017 on 05-Jan-2017
What another wonderful stay in Marine Lodge. This is a fantastic apartment with lots of living space for a family of 5 and it has everything you need for a weeks holiday. You really get the wow factor from the minute you open the front door looking in to the large hallway. Andrew the owner has thought of everything even decorating the house with decorations for Christmas/New Year. This is our second time here and have booked again for 2017. North Berwick is a great place for exploring; lots of lovely cafes, restaurants and shops. A 30 minute train journey and you are in the bustle of Edinburgh. We love North Berwick and love Marine Lodge, our second home.
Delighted with this excellent review from this returning family. For them to say a home for home and rebook a year in advance says it all. We are especially pleased that they not only feel comfortable but that we truly care for all our guests. We aim to give a very personal service to all guests. We look forward to welcoming them again very much.

Rest assured. This apartment is superb.

Not having gone through Owners Direct before I was slightly nervous of the procedure. However I spoke to the owner just before booking and realised I was dealing with a very honest and obliging man. Before the stay he couldn't have done more to help - offering to have food and drink waiting as we were arriving late, arranging a great taxi driver to take us to and from the airport. I always felt I had a network of support should I need it. The apartment is situated in an upmarket area. The beach is just over five minutes walk away. There are shops nearby, though I favoured Lidl just outside Limassol which was a twenty minute bus ride away from the bus stop two minutes from the apartment (it stops right outside the shop which is great). There are some lovely restaurants within walking distance; though expect to pay 60 - 70 euros for two adults and two children. Eating in Limassol probably would have been cheaper which is only 15 minutes by bus. The apartment is very modern and is very well kitted out. It is on the first floor. There is everything you could need - even beach toys and inflatables! It is very roomy and light with a huge balcony. All rooms have aircon. The pool below is lovely, though somewhat cooler than the sea. The beaches are either side of the St Rafael Hotel. The sea slopes out very gently which is ideal for children. I would definately go back and hire a car to explore the rest of Cyprus. A lovely holiday. Having enjoyed so much space with two young children I wouldn't go back to a hotel.
Spacious well appointed apartment close to Beach and shops
By Anon on 21-Sep-2016
This is the 3rd time that I have had the pleasure of staying in this apartment. It is spacious, well maintained and would I return for a 4th stay, absolutely. I have stayed in the summer and the winter and both have been very relaxing and enjoyable.
Apartment & Location Just Great !
By Dorothea M on 31-Jul-2016
Recently had the privilege of staying at the Marine Lodge in North Berwick. The apartment itself was well appointed, comfortable and very spacious. Andrew was a delight to deal with, providing us with lots of info and recommendations that helped make our holiday memorable. The "Scottish welcome items" Gordon provided on arrival were very appreciated as was the fact that he was available for any questions or concerns we might have encountered. We thoroughly enjoyed North Berwick! Not only is it a short 30 minute train ride to Edinburgh but there are a wealth of excellent golf courses nearby (North Berwick West Links is virtually across the street). A short walk down the street and you are in the centre of town with lots of excellent restaurants to choose from. Sincerely hope we have the opportunity to visit in the future. I would highly recommend this property.
A first rate property in a perfect location
By Paul B on 09-Jul-2016
Our first time at Marine Lodge and it certainly won't be our last. The apartment is spacious, well equipped and beautifully furnished. The attention to detail is evident throughout with every effort having been made to ensure that visitors have an enjoyable, comfortable and relaxing stay. Marine Lodge is ideally placed to take advantage of all that North Berwick has to offer - and being so dog friendly is an real added bonus. I would highly recommend this property. If you are looking for an excellent lunch, lovely home made cakes or a full works Scottish breakfast, then the café at Merryhatton Garden Centre is the place for you.
