“Very comfortable apartment”
Reviewed April 5, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

The apartment was very clean, comfortable and in an excellent location, everything was just as described. The central location meant we were able to walk everywhere. There is a Sainsburys Local a couple of minutes walk down the road and the kitchen is sufficiently equipped if you want to cook. Communication with Peter was excellent.

“Immaculate apartment in a great central location”
Reviewed January 6, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

This apartment is a great base for visiting Edinburgh. The central location meant everywhere was an easy walk and if you didn't want to walk far there were lots of great cafes/bars/pubs/restaurants within a 2 minute walk. The apartment was immaculately clean and had everything needed to accommodate 2 couples for 4 nights over Hogmanay. A well equipped kitchen/dining area/lounge gave us somewhere to sit together - and the bedrooms were really comfortable. We would definitely visit again!

“Lovely apartment in a good location”
Reviewed January 2, 2017 for a stay in June 2016

This is the second time I'm renting from Peter. The first was 4 years ago, for a one bedroom, this time for a two bedroom. Both apartments were well located, within easy walking distance to all the main sites. Beautifully decorated, well equipped and very clean.

The booking process was easy. Peter responded promptly to any queries and was very helpful. He was at the apartment to meet us and had kindly bought us some pastries, milk and juice.

Everything in the apartment worked well - good wi-fi speed, clean washing machine and dishwasher, good water pressure. I highly recommend this apartment.

“Perfect Location”
Reviewed November 20, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We traveled to Edinburgh in order to visit our daughter who is studying at the University for a semester. Only 15 minute walk to her flat. We traveled with our 23 yr.old son, who stayed with us.
Peter was very easy to deal with. He met us right on time and spent enough time to explain all the amenities and local spots. The apartment had everything needed for our weeks visit. It was nice that he provided tea, coffee and pastries for the morning. The view of the castle, right outside the window was a bonus.
Very close to everything. We could walk to Old Town, New Town, Edinburgh Castle, Royal Mile, and Grassmarket area. The shops, restaurants, coffee houses and pubs were all right there. It was nice that he had suggestions on where to eat, drink, local services, and landmarks. And distances to each. Also a taxi service contact if needed. We also enjoyed his complimentary scotch whiskey after a long day.(Bonus!!!)
Thank you very much, we enjoyed our stay.

“Excellent location!”
Reviewed November 12, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

An excellent location, a cosy and clean apartment, a brilliant view of the castle, a warm welcome from Peter warmed further by the whisky and porridge ( not mixed together!); overall a wonderful stay! We have zero complaints, 10/10 praise and cannot wait to visit again!

“Large 2 bedroom apartment with well equipped kitchen.”
Reviewed October 15, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Great location with view of the castle. Contacted Peter and was met at the apartment when we arrived by cab from the airport. He spent time with us talking about the apartment and giving us tips about the area. We ate our meals in the apartment using the close-by store for our supplies. Comfortable and loved having a bath tub.
