“Don't look past this gem - It is all it claims to be.”

The owners were very friendly and responsive and cheerfully accommodated our delayed arrival. The apartment is spectacular and very suitable for families. It is very well appointed. Double glazing meant it was very quiet. Safe area with supermarket and excellent restaurants nearby (try Kushi's Indian restaurant for a treat). Lovely views of Edinburgh castle. Do not be concerned by the communal staircase - it is a bit daunting as it is both steep and unrenovated. There is a true gem at the top of the stairs.

“Great Accommodation in heart of the city”

Great Flat for short stay in wonderful city, central location near bars & restaurants & shopping areas.
Great help that new tram system just opened with direct link to airport & cheap return ticket(£8) 3 minutes from flat.
Bought 48 hr. tour bus tickets (weather was fantastic) & used every route to view all aspects of the city. Used tour buses to hop on & hop off throughout routes
Only downside of flat was its 3rd floor location & fridge not cooling enough.
Would recommend this flat & location very highly for short visits.

“Great accommodation in a wonderful City!”

Thoroughly enjoyed our few days staying in this very comfortable flat! The location is excellent - easy walking distance to the heart of the city. Bus stops nearby too for trips further afield. The accommodation is clean and has all the facilities you need for a very comfortable stay. The welcome hamper is also a nice touch!
Mark's Dad met us on arrival and was very helpful, giving us some useful local info.
There are a lot of stairs to climb to reach the flat though, so good mobility is necessary.
A great find in this beautiful city!

A superb appartment in a great location. Clean, tidy and comfortable. Great view from living room over Calton Hill. All the accessories you could need in an appartment as well. Mark was there to greet us on arrival and assisted quickly with any quieries we had. Would definately us again if in Edinburgh and will reccomend to friends.

“I would do it again!”

This property is exactly what you see in the pictures. It has simple decorations with books and magazines about the region. It was warm and inviting at every turn. I took my grandmother and her friend (86 & 75 years old) along with my husband to visit Scotland. We do not like using the big chains and I love to book unique places. This fit the bill. The host, Mark was friendly and accommodating. The space was clean and offered us the opportunity to relax in a living space rather than hotel room. We had Take Out from the Italian restaurant around the corner and truly enjoyed eating at the dinner table of the rental. Then we watched a movie and went to bed to rest for the next day of adventure. I would absolutely recommend this rental to a friend! We all agreed it was WONDERFUL!
