About the Owner
Having a preference for self catering holidays since my children were young, I like to think I know what extra touches make a good holiday in to a great one and I hope that is what everyone will experience staying at my Apartment. I have lived in Edinburgh most of my life and really love the City and all the diversity that it has to offer and I hope you will enjoy it also.
Guestbook comments from the owner
“Wonderful stay in Edinburgh - highly recommend”
The apartment is conveniently located, walking distance to Royal Mile. Super market across the street - as kitchen was stocked with breakfast items we had no need. Very clean and spacious property. Carol our host was wonderful, very friendly and had folders with helpful information for the area.
Apartment has free wifi and is located in quiet area with parking stall.
We hope to visit Edinburgh again and would definitely stay here!

We stayed here for three nights whilst visiting family. Travelled with my Mum Dad and my two children (6, 2) and we had a great stay. Carol was very welcoming and had thought of everything to make the children feel at home. DVD's, toys, children's towels, games... My children felt very at home. The kitchen being stocked with essentials was a great help and the homebaking went down a treat.
We will definitely stay again. Thanks Caro

The apartment was ideally located......walking distance from Hollyrood Palace. Super market( Sainsbury) was just across the road. Nicely maintained property & was spacious for a family of four adults. The host Carol had equipped the apartment with all toiletarries & kitchen with cereals, milk, juice, bread, butter & jam.Carol was very friendly & had given tips for travel to & around Edinburgh. Located in quiet area & still close to Royal Mile. Will definitely stay at this place during our next visit.

I'm so glad we found this last minute apartment as we will be staying here again! Myself and my 5 month old baby boy went with my mum and dad who are in their 70's.
The apartment itself is spacious and clean. It has all you would need and more! It felt like a hotel having breakfast items already in the flat and all basic essentials you would need. Having a cot and high chair available meant a lot less to take in the car. Beds were comfortable and the cot had a proper mattress in it. Free dedicated car parking space and free wi fi.
Shops literally a 2 minute walk across the road were a godsend. Only a short bus ride into town centre and taxi only cost £6.
Carol is a lovely host and bent over backwards to accommodate us!
Only downside is no lift, which would be fine if you are fit and healthy. Did get a bit much for my parents but only going up them. There aren't many stairs and they are in 3 sets rather than one big staircase. We managed it with the baby and would stay again so cant have been too bad.
Portobello beach is a short car/bus journey away, around 15 minutes and the beach is beautiful! Sandy and clean with amusements and the normal sea side shops. Dog Frie

Clean, comfortable, well equipped and very welcoming.
You get used to being sent a code for a key safe to enter an apartment, so it was really nice to be greeted by Carol in person to show us around the apartment and with a welcome pack. She also gave us some very good tips of places to see and suggestions to eat. This personnel touch set us up very well for the weekend. The flats is well equipped and spacious and is in an ideal location to explore the city centre.
Comfortable marvelous flat
Thank you Carol for making our stay in Edinburgh fantastic. Carol is an amazing host. She e-mailed me before hand with things to do in Edinburgh and on how to get to the flat. We came by train. From Waverly Station to the flat was 7 pounds by taxi.
If you have a car, there is free parking in a designated spot.
The flat is really close to a shopping center that has a Sainsbury's. It's just across the street. Sainsbury's a big Supermarket, it's like a Super Target here in the States. Which came in handy. We bought groceries for breakfast and dinner.
Carol provided milk, cereal, bread, and butter. Which is amazing because a lot of host don't do that.
This flat by far has been my favorite to stay in. Carol being the host has a lot to do with that. I would say the flat is in a safe neighborhood. We didn't have any problems and felt safe. Towels and toiletries were provided. She even had some comfy house slippers for each guest.
It's about a 10 minute walk to Holyrood Palace and Parliament. We had a 69 year old with us, so it could be less of a walk. We did the hop on hop off bus. Which you can catch close by and pay for the pass on the bus.
Carol, thank you again for making our trip to Edinburgh a wonderful one.
Wonderful stay in a great flat
"Thank you to Carol for a perfect holiday in Edinburgh. All contact with Carol in advance of our arrival was prompt, friendly and flexible. On arrival she was equally helpful and welcoming.
The flat is very central (10 minutes at toddler pace walking to Holy Rood Palace and seconds from Sainsbury) with the parks and sights of Edinburgh on the doorstep. We took the open top bus ride, did the short drive to beautiful Portobello beach, visited the museum and also got the bus from the end of the road to go to the zoo.
The flat itself is in a fairly regular block, but inside is spacious with every comfort you could need including well-equipped kitchen, fluffy towels, toiletries and even a selection of teas, coffee, cereals and jam plus bread and milk. We had our two young children with us and Carol had prepared a travel cot for the baby and even had Disney bedding and towels for our other daughter. There was a high chair and a wide selection of plastic cutlery and crockery which just added to the feeling of comfort and ease. In addition there were toys and DVDs for the children as well as books and DVDs for adults.
We had a wonderful stay and would recommend the flat to anyone looking for a comfortable, convenient base in Edinburgh." Many thanks,Olivia, Jon,Ariadne and Genevieve
What a wonderful flat. Well laid out with everything w e needed plus more. Location was fab for the centre of Edinburgh a short walk to all areas. Very quiet neighbourhood. Very close to good shops.
We absolutely loved staying here! The location is great, close to a grocery store, free parking, and an easy walk to the Royal Mile. Carol was an amazing host, she had the apartment set-up with everything we could ever need, and even several things we wouldn't have thought of! She even provided us with very useful information prior to our arrival which made our trip go so smoothly. We will definitely stay here again when we go back to Edinburgh!
Ideal Location for visiting Edinburgh
The place was very clean and well-maintained. The owner provided many items to help travelers: coffee, tea, bread, jams, milk (to get you started). There is a store nearby (2 minute walk). The owner met us at the property and reviewed many of the attractions in the area. She provided maps and brochures to many of the attractions. The property is 10 minute walk to Royal Mile and Queens Palace. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family.

From the Owner
“When you chose self catering I think it is important to be able to shop for food easily. This apartment has a supermarket just beside it. It is also well served by many buses from the main road to allow you to experience all of edinburgh and beyond from the zoo in the west to seaside in the east without the extra cost of having to hire a car. A car is not required due to the central location, however if you are coming by car there is a free dedicated off road parking space at the apartment, so no parking fees. Holyrood Palace and Park and the Royal Mile are only a 5 -7minute walk away.”
