    It was the best equipped and cleanest holiday property we have rented through Sykes, the owner had thought of everything and with a lovely welcome pack after a long journey it was perfect. Will be recommending to friends and family.

  • "Great location for exploring the Moray coast and discovering lovely villages like Burghead, Forres etc."

    The beach extends for miles and the nearby Culbin forest has lots of interesting walks.. The accommodation is a real 'home from home' with everything you need including wi-if. The owner left a really generous 'welcome pack' for our arrival. Fabulous views from the window including glorious sunsets. Would really try to book this place again if I was to revisit this area. Couldn't fault it.

  • "The apartment is very well equipped with absolutely everything you can think of."

    The views are more spectacular than stated and the location is excellent. Very close to all shops, pubs and restaurants yet very quiet and peaceful. Ideal for children. Our son went to the Sailing School which he really enjoyed. Fantastic walks and close to the findhorn foundation. An excellent place to stay.

  • "Liked everything!"

    The apartment was perfect; beautifully furnished with everything we could possibly want included. Nothing was lacking and we found it a real home from home. The views from the kitchen and lounge over the gorse and sand dunes to the sea were lovely, and the sunsets were gorgeous. Also, the scenery all around this area is breathtaking. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in this lovely apartment.

The property

Findhorn is a most desirable location and this lovely bright first floor apartment with its sea views of the Moray Firth is just perfect for a great holiday.

The apartment is set on the first floor of an impressive and very well-kept building which is just yards from a long sandy beach.

There is plenty of off road parking space and the neat and tidy communal areas ensure that visitors will feel welcome and relaxed.

Seaside Haven has been tastefully furnished to a high standard and would be ideal for a couple, a small family or group of friends who want to experience the gentle environment and atmosphere of Findhorn which makes it a highly popular location for a Scottish holiday.

The open plan living area is a fantastic spot to relax and take in the sea views.

With a well-equipped kitchen and dining area, you have everything you need to gather the group together over a delicious home-cooked meal while making plans for the next day.

Completing the accommodation are two comfortable bedrooms, a king-size double and an adult bunk room and a family bathroom.

The apartment is very central and the excellent local facilities are on the doorstep, two friendly pubs serving great food are open all year round and the local bakery/café comes highly recommended.

The world famous Findhorn Foundation is situated on the southern boundary of the village and is well worth a trip, visitors can simply browse or take part in the day’s events.

For those who want to tour then why not journey north and take the fabulous north east coastal road stopping off at the lovely fishermen’s villages along the way.

For wildlife lovers the mud flats at low tide is a haven for birds and is an ornithologists dream.

What a fantastic spot for a holiday and what a great apartment to spend time in!

About the location


Kinloss 3 miles; Forres 5 miles; Elgin 13 miles.

Findhorn was at one time a very busy fishing port, and still preserves its strong connections with the sea today, with much of its village life centred around the bay, and fantastic sailing and watersports opportunities available with the Royal Findhorn Yacht Club resting on the waterfront. Its scenic location and gentle climate, influence by the Gulf Stream, make it a desirable destination. It is perhaps best known for being the home to the world-famous Findhorn Foundation, with its Ecovillage and international centre for holistic education. Findhorn boast two pubs, two cafes, an organic bakery and a local store, and is well placed for visiting the many pretty ports and villages nestled along the Moray Firth coastline. The Malt Whisky Trail can be joined close by and the Cairngorm National Park can be found within an hour’s drive. The hub of the Highlands, the city of Inverness, is just 25 miles to the west, and is well worth a day trip, where you will discover its historic buildings and atmospheric NT Culloden Battlefield.

Note - Check in time 15:30.
