My husband, father and I stayed in 1 of the 2 apartments available for rental - 11/1 Johnston Terrace, Edinburgh. The apartment is fantastic - roomy, comfortable, everything you could possibly want. The location is even better. If you are driving, parking is problematic, however, we were incredibly lucky and scored 1 of 2 available carparks opposite the apartment. Moira... More

We had a wonderful time at this apartment. The location was perfect with easy access to the Castle, a market, shops and restaurants. We were quite comfortable - had everything we needed and enjoyed the space to stretch out after being in a London hotel for 5 days. I would do this again in a heartbeat. The view of the... More

We just got back from a two week vacation to Scotland and England. This apartment was our first stop, after a long trip, where we were met by Moira with warmth and hot tea. We spent 3 nights here, and I cannot say enough about our stay. Moira was incredibly helpful prior to our arrival in helping me make travel... More

This apartment couldn't be better situated. It's right near Edinburgh Castle, close to some fantastic restaurants and within easy reach of shops and cafes. We stayed with two toddlers and there was enough space for them to run around without us feeling like we were all on top of each other. There was also a cot and bedding provided. The... More

I spent a week there the end of May and Moira and Eric made everything so easy from advice on advance fare train tickets to the wonderful welcome basket (everything you need to get started) to...

We had an excellent stay in apartment 11-1. It was extremely convenient to all Edinburgh attractions, spacious, clean and well appointed. The apartment contained every amenity we could possibly need, and the welcome basket provided by the owners was greatly appreciated. We were greeted upon arrival, provided with a tour of the apartment and an explanation of everything needed for... More

The owner was so service oriented. I have never seen others to offer this much service though emails before we even stay there. She has tons of books and brochures about Edinburgh, it was like a tourist info center built in at your apartment. It was amazing. She has everything in her place, all for you to use. Her welcome...
