“We became engaged in this apartment. An incredible stay.”

This is quite a late review; my fiance and I stayed in this apartment over Christmas 2011.

After a long trip from Galway (with everything we owned packed in suitcases) we finally arrived at the apartment late at night. Martin had kindly mailed the keys to us a few weeks earlier so we could get in easily. When we arrived the apartment was lovely and warm, with a bottle of wine waiting for us. Everything was perfect - from the view out of the windows, to the guestbook containing memories of a couple who had lived there decades before, to the incredible rooftop balcony with sweeping views of Edinburgh.

The bedroom had a comfortable bed with soft towels laid on top. The entire apartment, in fact, was very clean and the kitchen contained everything we needed for the week that we stayed there. WiFi was also available free of charge.

Our favourite part was the fireplace, infront of which my (now) fiance proposed to me on Christmas morning.

The apartment is in a central location in a secure building. It is not a far walk to convenience stores and central Edinburgh. The rooftop terrace is only one flight of stairs up from the apartment and offers an incredible view of the city. I cannot wait to return to Edinburgh and stay in this apartment again.

Thanks for your review - much appreciated. And congratulations on your engagement! It's great to hear that your fiancé proposed to you at Jeffrey Street.

In fact, the couple who you refer to in your review came back to that apartment to celebrate their Diamond Wedding Anniversary (the apartment was their first home together back in the 1950s).

Wishing you both many happy years together!

Best wishes

It was great to be able to welcome you back again to Flat 14, and glad to hear that you enjoyed the apartment as much as before. Nice to know that you appreciated the sharp knives: there's nothing worse than blunt knives when trying to cook!

Yes, you're right that the apartment is good for two guests, and sometimes the second guest prefers to use the sofabed rather than share the bed in the bedroom. The sofabed option also makes for good-value accommodation for 3 or 4 guests. We also have two-bedroom apartments available at Vacation Rentals Scotland for those who prefer a little more space.

We hope to be able to welcome you back again to one of our apartments at some point in the future.

Best regards
Martin, Vacation Rentals Scotland
