“From the minute we started communicating with Aaron we became so excited about doing a swap with him and his family. We loved our stay at Glenardle … Aaron was a great communicator & everything went smoothly! Their home was perfectly located, literally on Leven Golf Course and very central to explore the whole Fife area, Edinburgh, Dundee and Perth during our visit to Scotland. The Spar within walking distance was sufficient for all our immediate shopping needs and there is a Sainsbury’s also very close by. We appreciated the fact that we could make use of Aaron’s dad’s golf clubs and so enjoyed meeting his dad at the house one evening. The massage chair was a huge hit with all of us. Their beautiful and unique home has everything you could possibly require & we have no hesitation in recommending it to others. We had a lovely time … THANKYOU! ” ”
“Wow! This house was spotless and packed with everything you could possibly need. Aaron and Florence are so lovely and were there if we needed them. Steps to the beach where I walked every morning. Comfortable beds, great communication, hot tub a treat Thank you so much, looking to give you points again in May. ”
“When we arrive in the home from Aaron and his family we feel ons welcome; In the kitchen a welcomepacket for our family, many thanks! The house was warm and clean en comfortable with massagechair, hottub, sauna. Our favorite explores in the area are Edinburgh, Culross, a small little village and Clamis Castle. When we come back in Holland our castle is very clean, thank you! On the table we find Scottish surprises, many thanks again. ”
“This house is enormous fun! If you were unlucky enough to hit a bout of bad Scottish weather, then you wouldn't mind all that much as there is so much to do in the house that you would be well entertained. We had an awesome family gathering in the huge Tiki Bar in the large conservatory which comes complete with a ping pong table, mini washing machine for the glasses, DJ turntables (which we didn't use, but looked great) and disco lights. A bit of stress when we couldn't figure out how to turn off the music late at night thats part of the super luxurious hot tub (that also has a TV screen and full disco lights), but we were a bunch of girls from Africa so had to call in the fabulous family friend Dave a couple of times to help explain some of the high tech items like the shower in the master bedroom! We counted 12 TV's. We didn't use the well equipped gym enough, nor the sauna but we fought over the fantastic massage chair. The house is in a prime location on the edge of the golf course and close to the beach. To be honest, Leven is a practical rather than a pretty tourist town, but it is very well placed for trips to Edinburgh and the beautiful town of St Andrews, not to mention the quaint villages of Falkland, Elie, Crail and Anstruther. Aaron was super helpful, quick to respond and very friendly. Only regret is that we didn't get to meet what I am sure are a very fun family with lots of character, just like their wonderful home.”
“If we could give more than 5 stars for this property then we would! The location, cleanliness, comfort of Glenardle were all superb. We received a warm welcome and continual communication to check on our satisfaction throughout the trip, with excellent recommendations for places to eat and drink nearby. The fantastic situation right on the golf course and so near to the sea front meant that everyone was happy and the town centre and local shops were on hand nearby too. Plenty of tech available, with every modern convenience, abundant televisions, sauna, spa bath and showers, table tennis, and , not forgetting the massage chair for after a workout in the gym ! We all had a really memorable holiday, and hope to return next year. Thanks again to Aaron and his family. ”
“We were absolutely delighted to host Adrian and his parents at our home . They were so commutative and considerate and treated our home as they would their own . Wonderful guest that we would certainly have again.”
“Aaron and his family were the perfect guests . It was a pleasure to meet them on arrival . They were very respectful and left our house spotless ! Thank you Aaron and we hope to see you again in the near future .”
“I feel very lucky to have welcomed Ian, Florence and Aaron to my home as my very first Lovehomeswap experience. A close knit, fun loving, friendly family with a great zest for life. Plus, after a weeks stay my house with left in an immaculate state. I had anticipated several hours cleaning, but other than changing bed sheets didn’t have a thing to do. I really hope to see them all again either in France, or on a visit to Scotland, and I don’t hesitate to recommend them as guests in your home.”
