“Great location- home away from home!”

Kirsty's home was spacious, stylish and very clean. The bed and pull out sofa bed were very comfortable and had all the necessities that made it feel like home. It was located right in the heart of Edinburgh with a fantastic view of the castle, but was very peaceful as it overlooked a cute courtyard. Great location to have as a base for seeing all the sites! We had booked very last minute and Kirsty was very accommodating and had organised Ewan to meet us. She sent through recommendations (which were great!) and Ewan even spent time to mark out places on the map for us to see. Overall we had a great time at Kirsty's place and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Edinburgh!

“Great flat, fantastic location”

This flat is nice and lean, well decorated and perfectly located. We arrived late from a hiking trip in the Highlands and Kirsty was very kind and accommodating, making sure the flat was nice and warm and leaving us fresh milk for a much wanted cup of tea.
Completely recommend

“A Terrific Place to Stay in Edinburgh”
Reviewed March 30, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I stayed in this apartment with my girlfriend for 6 nights and thought it was a terrific place. We had a very friendly greeting when we arrived . Everything about the apartment and surrounding areas were explained to us.

Once we got settled in and started doing some exploring of the city I realized just how centrally and well located this place was. You really have everything you need a very short walk in any direction. Groceries, pubs, restaurants, shopping, it's all there!

The apartment was very clean. The kitchen was well equipped and very functional making it easy prepare our meals. Bathroom plumbing in this flat was great (which sometimes in Edinburgh can be a bit testy I now realize, so it was nice to have everything work all the time) and a nice hot shower.

Very nice comfortable bed in a large bedroom with a ton of storage space. I slept like a baby.

Wifi worked very well. Used the washer and dryer, watched tv and was very happy overall with the place.

I would not hesitate to stay in this flat again. It really had everything I needed.

Although it was not a problem for me, there are some flights of stairs to go up to get to this property and no elevator.

Booked fairly last minute for the rugby weekend. Host was very helpful, giving us directions, suggesting places to eat on the weekend and meeting us on arrival.

Flat was very clean, bedding, towels and some toiletries provided. Also provided milk for the first cup of tea after a long journey. Bed was very comfy!

Grass market is the perfect place to explore the castle, royal mile, old town. Plenty of pubs and restaurants within 5 mins of flat.

All in all a great weekend and fuss free stay in Edinburgh. Thanks Kirsty!

The flat was perfect- everything was provided and there were even enough hooks! The children slept happily on the sofa bed and we didn't see them until 8am each morning. An attractive flat light and bright, proper art on the walls too.
The location is fantastic right by Grassmarket which made it possible to pop in and out to drop things off and grab a cup of tea.
We loved it and would stay there again.
Thank you.
