“Home from home”
Reviewed November 5, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

From the moment we arrived at Sylvie's apartment.everything fell into place. It is such a homely apartment.everything is provided. You could cook if you wish.bread milk and butter was there for us.and as a special touch.Sylvie had left a bottle of prosecco in the fridge as it was my husbands birthday.
Town was 10 minutes walk.a little uphill but worth it. The area where the apartment is is really beautiful.antique shops and galleries.
Eat at the dome if possible. It was done up for Christmas when we were there and I've never seen anything quite so spectacular.
Sylvie was a brilliant host.looking after us before we arrived.and on the end of the phone if we needed her.
We've already booked to go back in spring.just to take advantage of the lovely garden at the apartment. Would highly recommend this lovely place.

“Fab again!”
Reviewed October 28, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We returned to the apartment again after such a good experience last year. Once again it did not disappoint us, Sylvie was very helpful and we arrived to find warm bread, milk and the kettle boiled ready for a cuppa. The apartment is so close to the centre and in easy walking distance, we hired a car this year so we could travel further afield, one thing to be warned that you have to pay for parking Monday to Friday 8.30 til 5.30, free at the weekend though.
We will definitely return here and would recommend it to others.

“Charming”
Reviewed September 18, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Stayed for a couple of nights. The place was absolutely charming. A cosy living area, comfy bed and delightful small garden at the rear where we drank wine as the sun, set.
Just a couple of blocks from the centre, but far enough out to be quiet. Handily located for a walk to the waters of Leith. Will be top of our list if we return to Edinburgh.

“A very pretty apartment in a great location.”
Reviewed July 30, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Arriving on an early flight I was very grateful that Sylvia made the apartment available straight away. A comfortable living area is filled with light from the small garden and everything I needed was provided - even fresh milk bread and butter. The area is safe and quiet but within walking distance of many attractions. I would happily stay there again.

“Perfect”
Reviewed July 22, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

What a lovely apartment, absolutely perfect for our weekend get away. I was worried about the location but it was not an issue at all, 10 minute walk from the apartment to the centre of town. It was slightly uphill but not enough to put me off having a stroll.
The owners were easy to contact, very friendly. Not that we did have any issues but they left their Mobile number if we had any questions/issues. Apartment was clean and had all the untensils and items you may require (not that we used them as we only stayed 2 nights). If I ever stayed in Edinburgh again I would 100% stay here and I would recommend to all family & friends. Thanks for helping to make our weekend away just perfect
