Eventually, an estate agent in Edinburgh sent details to the church of the Golf View Hotel building in Lundin Links. It was decided that a visit should be made. The former hotel was found to be a most suitable site, so negotiations began on the purchase, which was concluded late in 1963. Mr Colin Wilson, the secretary/treasurer of the British Adventist Missions Limited said that:
"It was a most delightful building then - like a little bit of heaven - but during the past few months a tremendous amount of work has been done and it is now looking very beautiful."
Mr Adamson went on to say that he "hoped they would have as much pleasure in the village as he himself had done" as he "couldn't think of a lovelier spot on earth". The name 'Peacehaven' was thought to be "very apt as that was just what the village was". He concluded that Lundin Links, Lower Largo and Upper Largo were three communities with "their own distinct personalities but they had one thing in common and that was a warm heart".
