“Lovely, well appointed apartment within walking distance of Edinburgh.”

person found this review helpful

Easy booking and contact with the owner made this stay pleasurable. All information about the apartment, parking and places to visit, were provided. Let me first say that I would stay here again without hesitation.
Things to be aware of though is that parking is limited immediately outside the apartment but good directions are provided to one close by. There were 4 in our group and 2 cars but we managed to secure spaces for both right outside. Both bedrooms are a good size, but being the first there we bagsied the biggest :) Living room is perfect decor with a view towards Edinburgh and the kitchen/diner had everything you needed.
The only drawer back is the apartment is on the top floor, great for views etc, but access is via stone stairs so will prove difficult for push chairs and relevant disabilities.
But for me and our 2 night stay it was great.

“A home away from home”
Reviewed October 11, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Beautiful apartment, situated on the top floor of this apartment. The view is amazing from the front living room of Calton Hill and the street below. Mark and his dad were there to greet us upon arrival and provided excellent communication and recommendations on where to eat & park. Mark went above and beyond our needs letting us arrive early and check out late. Honestly, if you are looking for somewhere of excellent quality for an extremely modest price in a brilliant location this is the place for you.
The flat is little more than five minutes away from the city centre with transport links just up the street but honestly everything is in walking distance.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would recommend to all our friends and family.

“Best stay ever”

Everything was perfect, after a lot of rain outside the log fire was great and romantic :) The apartment was only 10 minut walk from all the main POI.. Would love to go again...

“Just perfect”
Reviewed September 28, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Just home from a fantastic stay at this apartment for The Ryder Cup. We were met by Martin who was so friendly. We have stayed a few times in Edinburgh but only in hotels but never again. This apartment is perfect , a real home from home , far superior and more comfortable than any hotel. Thanks to Mark and his dad Martin. See you again on our next visit. Mccartneys

“Oh so lovely!”
Reviewed July 25, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Me and my mom spent three nights in this beautiful apartment in May 2014. Interaction with the owner was brilliant and I get all answers fast. The apartment was well equipped and specious. We both loved especially the sitting room with great view. The location was also good. Traveling with bus was easy and many great places were on walking distance. I would love to visit this apartment again!
