My wife and I stayed here 4 nights and absolutely loved this charming apartment.
It was the perfect compliment to such a wonderful location - in the heart of Grassmarket with steps to Edinburgh Castle literally right outside the front door. Everything we wanted to do was just a short walk away.
We were also spoiled by the AMAZING personal attention we received. Everything we could have needed was in the apartment waiting for us, there was a very thorough guest book that outlined all the things to do and see and when we needed anything else, Danni was just an email or text away.
After this level of service, I don't think we'll ever be able to vacation in a "regular" hotel again.
Thank you again, Danni and Roland!
We fell in love with this apartment. The location is perfect for site-seeing. Grassmarket is steps from the Edinburgh Castle. There are markets out front, pubs and coffee shops all around, and a short distance (within a 1 to 2-mile radius) of most of the sites. We Ubered a few times, but mostly walked. The owners have thought of everything. The skylight over the bed that looks out at the castle has an automatic shade so you can sleep in. Danni had earplugs in the medicine cabinet, which we did not need. We found the apartment to be well insulated from sound for such a happening location. We heard the pubs let out Saturday night and heard the doors in the apartment building a few times, but this did not bother us. Granted, we live in a city. We did not hear sounds from neighboring apartments, e.g., talking, music or TV, which is the sort of thing that ruins a place for me. The bathroom has been beautifully redone with a rain shower and heated towel warmer. Danni and Roland had good coffees (Lavazza) for a French press or pods for a Nespresso machine. The appliances were very nice (Bosch, mostly). There were good soaps and scented reed diffusers from a nearby shop. A cozy wool throw by the window. The lighting was all dimmable. They included a book of their local recommendations. I could go on and on. We adored it and would be pleased to stay here again.
Recommended day trip, we walked to Craig Millar castle (~3 miles) and had the place nearly to ourselves, then walked another direction to Sheeps Heid Inn, where we had a leisurely lunch (Danni and Roland had not recommended the service, but we found the staff to be quite welcoming, showing us around the Victorian bowling alley, recharging our iPhones, and the meal was great) and then walked back to town through Holyrood park, past a marshy wildlife area and through a green valley. If you have good weather, it makes for a great walking tour around the city.
If you’re vegetarian or love Indian food, do not miss Kalpna – amazing food at very reasonable prices. The Secret Garden also had a wonderful vegetarian option for the chef course meal. Stockbridge neighborhood had some good bars and pubs.
We had two nights in this gorgeous little apartment and just loved it. It has everything you could need in terms of comfort, amenities and as for the view - WOW!! Superb location right on Grassmarket but really quiet and peaceful as up high. One note of advice - 4 floors up and no lift so pack lightly!! Will definitely rebook for our next visit (even if rugby result isn’t as good!!)
Everything was perfect, would definitely come back if in Edinburgh. The view of the castle at night is simply amazing!!
Everything was just as I hoped it would be. What an amazing first time experience in Edinburgh. Danni and Roland are an awesome team. All the small touches they put in to personalize the experience from a welcome message to chocolates on the bed to prosecco waiting in the fridge. So great! Danni was also super attentive in exchanging messages to give us suggestions and feedback on planned side trips we had outside of the city #castlehunting. And speaking of castles, the view of Edinburgh castle from the flat in the morning, afternoon, and evening is spectacular. You will not be disappointed!
Also, the area where the apt is located is in Grassmarket which has really great selection of restaurants right outside our door stop. My personal favorite was Petit Paris. Try the steak and French onion soup! Without a doubt I'll be returning to Edinburgh and will be planning my return based on the availability of Danni and Roland's apartment. Thank you again for a wonderful first time experience!
Of all of our places we stayed during our trip this was the best. Perfect location. Everything in the apartment was tasteful and luxurious. The view from the skylight over the bed was spectacular. The attention to detail with a personal welcome tray made the walk up to the 5th floor well worth the effort. I want to go back and stay at least a week.
What a fabulous flat - location, comfort, style, treats - it's got them all.
Our trip to the fringe was made so easy by the location being walking distance from so many venues.
Would like to visit Edinburgh earlier in the year to see it pre August without all the buzz and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
