Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment. It is in a perfect location for exploring Edinburgh, and we would definitely book this again if ever fortunate enough to visit again. The apartment is easy to find. We had taken the bus from Glasgow, and our stop was very close to the apartment. Arriving, we found the place to be very clean and well laid out.

Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Great spot for a week in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent apartment for our week in Edinburgh. The location is perfect. The airport tram stop is half a block away. The apartment is close to the tourist attractions but its Newtown location is much quieter. The apartment is roomy, there was room for our daughter(studying abroad at the University of Edinburgh) to stay with us for the weekend. It was well equipped, had plenty of hot water, and our host, Ed was very accommodating. We will definitely try to stay here again!

Spacious and convenient

  • 4 of 5

This flat has a lovely feel to it. The sitting room is very spacious and full of character with 12 foot ceilings and huge windows looking onto the street. It's extremely convenient for the tram and near to shops. Would be very happy to return.

Good!

  • 4 of 5

Great location! Easy to walk everywhere. Clean and everything worked. Beds and couches were hard, and could have been updated. But I would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful flat & perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, adult son & I started our 2-week Scotland vacation in this beautiful Georgian flat. Ed was really helpful, understanding, and flexible with our very early arrival time (overseas travel!). The kitchen had everything we needed to cook, although there were delicious restaurants all around as well. 2 bedrooms was lovely, everyone had their space, if needed. The laundry was essential, allowing us to pack light! We were able to walk virtually everywhere we wanted to go - although we did take the bus to Leith one day; that was very accessible as well. The electric streetcar ran almost directly in front of the flat (looked easy although we didn't use it). There was a Tesco's down the road so food & beverages were readily available. There is absolutely nothing to say that is negative about this rental. Anything we needed we had. And Ed even guided me in the online payment process, of which I was unfamiliar. All around a perfect fit for our needs!
