  • "An absolutely amazing home."

    Felt like it was our home for the week. Everything we needed was available with more. Clean and warm when we arrived. Stuff for kids to enjoy and even had smart tvs in each room. Will definitely be booking again.

  • "This is a lovely property, stayed this time last year, liked it so much booked again this year."

    .. However.. Last year reported to owners the heating was faulty, the living room sofa broken...... This year bitterly disappointed, the sofa still broken, both shower still faulty ( too hot, boiler been turned down low to compensate ) On top of this, main bedroom mattress need replacing along with pillows, On the plus side heating has been fixed, other things not...... sorry not good enough for a 5 star property. Sad to say wouldn't return again, because the house and location is lovely

  • "15 Water’s Edge is a beautiful property which met all of our needs."

    It has a great family kitchen-dining area and separate sitting room downstairs. There is also a games room and there are plenty of screens throughout the house with a variety of streaming services which kept everyone happily occupied when the weather wasn’t so good, but the view is to die for. We spent hours watching the waves across from the house, through the window but also on our walks. Great walks by the sea towards Whitehills and Macduff and a brilliant restaurant, the Indian Garden, in town. Other beautiful towns and villages are within easy reach: Cullen, Portknockie, Findochty, Buckie, Findhorn and Lossiemouth East Beach are all worth a look. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this property.

    When we come to Banff we usually stay in a caravan this year we decided to rent this house and we have just got back home and booked it for next year. It was the best thing we have done.

  • "It would have been nice to have had the King Size beds as advertised"

    Reviewed by Janet4.4Nov 2021

  • "The main issue was that you describe the master and second as being king size "Upstairs you can find four charming bedrooms, with the two king-sizes being front facing, they offer fantastic views of the seafront just outside of the property, and with the two rear bedrooms containing a stacker and a twin, they’re organised perfectly for the kids to relax and get a restful night’s sleep."

    " The beds are not king size they are doubles, meaning that we had to sleep in separate rooms from our wives. this was very disappointing. The owner own web site for letting clearly state doubles. Apart from that the house was lovely.

    Squeaky clean and equipped with everything that could be needed. Lovely location - across the road from the shore. Contact and personal touch from host. Very helpful - nothing a bother. Banff has a lot to offer - thoroughly recommend every aspect of this house and Banff! Can’t wait to return.

  • "Had a fantastic week away at 15 waters edge."

    The house was beautiful and the location was great. Waking up to that sea view every morning was stunning! The house has all the facilities we could have asked for and the games room was a bonus for the kids too. We had a small problem with the plumbing in one of the toilets and after getting in touch with the owners this was fixed in less than 24 hours. Really can’t complain about anything and will definitely be looking into booking again maybe in the summer next year.

    Welcoming hosts to an immaculate property. Excellent facilities, 5 stars and some! We were hoping to find some dolphins on our trip, we needn't have worried as they found us and swam a few metres away past the front door! We would recommend both the property and the location.
