    The property has gas central heating and comprises:
    Six steps up to...
    Ground Floor:
    Dining room: With 40" TV with Sky Sports, drinks fridge and patio doors to balcony with seating and sea views.
    Kitchen: With electric oven, gas hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and sea views.

    12 steps down to...
    Lower Ground Floor:
    Lounge: With electric coal-effect fire, 40" TV with Sky Sports, DVD player, CD/radio, iPod dock, Wii and patio doors to the garden.
    Bedroom 3: With double bed (for one).

    All gas, electric, bed linen and towels included. Travel cot, highchair and stairgate supplied on request. Wi-Fi.

    Enclosed garden with sitting-out area and furniture. Balcony with furniture. On road parking. Cycle store. No smoking. NB: There is a sealed off well and two steps in the garden.

    Aptly named ‘Making Waves’, this stunning property sits right on the sea shore in the pretty fishing port of Cellardyke on the east Fife coast. Enjoying a unique position and furnished and equipped to an excellent standard with Sky Sports, Wi-Fi and three good sized bedrooms, the property couldn’t be better placed for exploring the Fife coastline. The property has beautiful views towards May Island, Bass Rock and North Berwick Law from the kitchen, dining room and master bedroom. Outside the south facing garden looks right over the shore, the perfect place to relax with a glass of wine and watch the fishing boats sailing by. A short stroll brings you to the neighbouring town of Anstruther, which has a good selection of shops, pubs and The Cellar Restaurant, holder of 3AA rosettes and UK seafood restaurant of the year. For the more energetic, the Fife Coastal Path runs for 150km nearby, and for cyclists, the Millennium Cycle Way has 300 miles of quiet country roads, disused railways and forest tracks to explore. Look out for boat trips to the Isle of May, a National Nature Reserve where you can spot puffins and seals. Boats leave from the port at Anstruther between April and September.

    Had a great week at “Making Waves”. We had read some of the reviews & were a bit unsure what we would find, but everything was superb. Rooms all clean, everything we needed, a home from home which was very well equipped. It was great opening the bedroom curtains in the morning to see the sea. Having breakfast at either the breakfast bar or out on the balcony watching the boats which my husband spent hours with his binoculars watching. Even cooking or washing up was great looking out at the sea view. Downstairs a lounge with patio doors which went out to a small patio which had garden furniture leading to the garden going right down the sea. We absolutely loved our week so much we have booked to go back at the end of September as a week was not long enough. Roll on till we get back.

    A fantastic location with a little balcony overlooking the sea and great views of the sea. However, on the night of arrival, discovered a minor infestation on the towel and the bed in the front bedroom. Also present in the towel was what appeared to be animal hairs. We informed the owner straight away and the following day he collected the towels and bedding. We have not yet been informed what this infestation was. This property is described as a cottage but we found there is a neighbour living above the property. The lounge downstairs smelt of damp meaning that we didn't use it, so it was more like a flat to us. We have stayed at similar properties regarding location and cost and this property did not match up to these. However, we notice from the visitors book, visitors really enjoy this cottage.

    Cottage is in a nice quiet location and just a few minutes walk to the harbour areas of Anstruther and Cellardyke, lovely garden area for sitting and taking in the views. The kitchen is very well equipped but the dining area isn't comfortable for eating, it's only a breakfast bar not a dining table. The sofas in the lounge have lost there firmness and not very comfortable. The bedroom to the back of the house has a double bed but one side is right against the wall, OK for children. The garden furniture cushions had been left out and were wet so couldn't use them for a couple of days until they'd dried out, we left them in the storage cupboard DRY for the next guests.

    Location was great with views over the Forth and easy stroll into Anstruther. Accommodation suited us fine with almost all the equipment we needed for a full week. No problems at all and happy to recommend to others.

    Making Waves is in a super location, backing on to the sea, close to Anstruther with great sea views & enjoyable coastal walks. It's well equipped - Sky Sports was a real bonus - and we had a fantastic week. We recommend a trip to the Isle of May. Anstruther had lots of good places to eat.

    We stayed here the second time and noticed that the plumbing of the toilets was worse than the previous year. Awful squeeking noise when you flush and the ensuite toilet stank of sewerage witch hang in the bedroom as well. This needs to be seen to as it can be a health hazard. It is a shame because it is a wonderful Cottage. When we read the guest comment book we noticed that more visitors were annoyed by this. I hope the owner will take note and have the plumbing checked and fixed.

    We had a very nice week in "Making Waves". The House was comfortable and had everything we needed (even more so like the fridge especially for wine...). The view from the kitchen, dining room, lounge and one bedroom was great. There are nice places to eat (e.g. The Haven at Cellardyke Harbour, and, of course the great fish and chips restaurant.
