If you are looking for an ideal location to stay in Edinburgh, look no further. The location is absolutely ideal and Moira and Eric (owners) are helpful and knowledgeable. The flat was spacious and clean with nice furnishings and great architectural details. The bedrooms were large with good storage for all of our clothes and luggage. The beds were on... More

My wife and I stayed here (apt. 16/4) in July and were extremely pleased. The owners communicated with us frequently in the months between our booking and our arrival and were very attentive without in any way being intrusive during our stay. The apartment itself is exactly as described; comfortable for four but quite spacious for just the two of... More

From the moment we booked until we boarded the train to leave we had fantastic service and communication. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by Moira who thoroughly went through the apartment with us answering any questions we had. They had included a lovely welcoming basket as well. The 2 bedrooms were perfect for a family of four. The bathroom... More

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
