“Good!”

Quaint, beautiful place.. Very cosy..
Only thing was, we had a hard time looking for it since I wasn't able to read the owner's message right away with the address in it.. And the trip advisor ad didn't have any address.. Otherwise, really good stay

“Perfect location, flat with character.”
Reviewed November 4, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

The location of the property is ideal away from the main busy roads yet 10 minutes away from the centre. great flat very cosy alot of character and you will feel right at home. I would stay here again and again, its a shame I did not get to meet the owners but never the less they made us feel welcome by making the place ready and clean and also adding a few other touches all of which is appreciated and makes this the ideal place for a romantic getaway weekend to explore a wonderful city. Thank you Sylvia hopefully we might see you again in the near future.

“Even better than the photos!”
Reviewed July 30, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed for 3 nights and the apartment is beautiful, larger and even nice than the photographs show. Sylvia was unable to meet us at the flat, but left us a lovely welcome note with full instructions for everything and phone numbers, plus a lovely welcome package of shortbread, chocolates, milk, bread and butter. Plus the cupboards were full of tea, coffee, condiments, cooking oils and herbs and spices.

Only 15 minutes walk to Princes Street and Waverely Station, 10 mins to Sainsbury's local, and a nearby corner shop (but watch the prices here!). We had pretty much planned our itinerary for the weekend, but Sylvia left plenty of leaflets and fliers for local attractions, takeaways and taxi firms. We would love to stay here again should we re-visit Edinburgh.

“to find another place like this one would be at least 30 pounds more per night”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I am on a tour de england with my patents after graduation, we have been to five towns, lived in places of similar price range, including a holiday rental, nothing came close to this gem in the lower ground of new town edinburgh. the middle/upper class neighbour hood is extremely quiet, fifteen mins walking to waverly, with a small convenient store around the corner.

the apartment itself is impeccable. As I am writing this review, I am listening to music i picked out of fifty sth CDs in the lounge, which comes with three murals, a working fireplace and view of the delicate backyard with a table and chairs. you can find the rest in other reviews and the description.

The host Sylvie is a star.

if there is anything you could complain, is that it is 20 mins walk away from the nearest sainsbury, from where you can get stuff to utilise the fully packed kitchen.

Enough of spoilers, enjoy edinburgh.

“Fabulous apartment, loved our stay here.”
Reviewed June 20, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Husband and I stayed here with our adult daughter and loved it. Good location, walk to shops, sights and restaurants. Owner was very helpful and obliging. It was clean, had everything we needed and some lovely personal touches. I can't wait to go back to Edinburgh and book in here for a longer stay!
