“Cozy, central location with amazing view!”
Reviewed November 14, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

The flat was super cozy and really has all the amenities you need. The owners provided a welcome pack and the place felt very welcoming! Location is amazing. You don't have to go far to enjoy what Edinburgh has to offer but it is also just as easy to enjoy a night in, especially with a supermarket very close by. We had a third person staying and the owner was very accommodating and drove from an hour away to drop off an air mattress. Thank you for a lovely stay!

“Fabulous base for Edinburgh!”

My first time visiting Edinburgh and I wanted a nice place to stay, so I decided on this one after reading the great reviews. I'm here to add another one. It's a warm and cosy flat which was perfect for me and my 8 yr old. Felt safe here and it was very clean and came with everything you could possibly need including fast Wi-Fi and the welcome pack - tea, milk, bread, cheese etc, nice little touch's. For everything else there's a Sainsbury's at the top of the road. Grassmarket at the bottom of the road with it's lovely medieval buildings and quirky shops. Amazing view of the castle and actually almost everything else is within walking distance (lots of steps and hills in Edinburgh) so it's a great place to return to at the end of a tiring day. (Unfortunately I couldn't recommend it to people with prams or wheelchairs as there is no lift).
Thoughtful owners with perfect communication and directions to make it all go smoothly. Fabulous!

“Perfect Fringe accommodation”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Centrally located but quiet, hidden away but easy to find, this flat is an excellent choice for Edinburgh accommodation. The bed was small but comfortable, the wi fi was great, the welcome pack was comprehensive, all the instructions were very clear. Communication with the owners was prompt and clear, and all in all we had a great time here. I will certainly be trying to book this studio again for next time.

“Cosy flat in perfect location”
Reviewed August 11, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We loved our 8 day stay here for the Edinburgh fringe -was so nice to be so central as we normally end up staying quite far out. The flat is really well equipped ,there is literally nothing that the owners have not thought of! The view from the kitchen was amazing -loved waking making up some breakfast with stunning view of castle. This isn't really a criticism as I think it's just us (as no-one else has mentioned it on reviews! ) but we found the bed a bit on the small side &not the most comfortable ever stayed in -but really not a major issue and the numerous positives far outweighed this ! Would def stay there again overall ,really lovely little place .

Thank you the pleasant stay.
