“The Place to stay”

My wife, young son and I stayed 4 nights in this apartment and I have to say having stayed in numerous self catering places over the years, the London St apartment was an absolute delight! The best thing about it was the owner Lisa who not only acted as an unpaid tour guide but provided all the essentials required for a young toddler. This all combined to make our stay exceptional and we will definitely be booking this apartment on any return visit. It's ideally located with just the best corner shop ever about 50 yards away. If you have children, check out the Barony Street community garden and playground, a little city oasis.

Its places like this apartment which make a city break so much more relaxing. Its well equipped, furnished, bright, clean and warm if needed, we loved it. Our break was one of our most relaxing and this is in large part due to Lisa and her apartment.

Stayed here with two friends. The flat is very central, cosy and really well equipped. We'll definitely be returning!

“Lovely, homely apartment”
Reviewed May 28, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I stayed here with my sister and 18 month old for 3 nights and it felt like a home from home the minute we walked in the door.

The apartment was spotless, spacious yet cosy and had everything provided that I needed for my daughter, from a high chair and toys to all the bedding needed for her cot.

We went for a wander when we arrived and came across a gorgeous independent vintage tea room (delicious food), a Tesco Express and a number of bars, restaurant and shops within about five minutes of walking. A further five minutes (slower walkers with a pushchair) found us right in the heart of New Town and all the shops, parks, bars, cafes, restaurants and sights it has to offer. That evening, we enjoyed the chocolates and fizz kindly left for us upon arrival.

As long as you can handle a few steps down to the apartment and the fact there are a few sloped roads leading to it (we managed fine with a pushchair) then you could not really go wrong renting this place.

Stayed for 4 nights in April 2015. Lovely basement apartment accessed by a set of steps from ground level, so not suitable for wheelchair users. Well provided kitchen, lovely little nursery room for our daughter with a fab little selection of toys for her. Bright, airy and great sized master bedroom, lovely bathroom. Metered parking outside. Well stocked corner shop at the end of the street, and shops, cafe's and a wonderful butcher a few minutes walk away. Great location and we will definitely be staying here again.

“Couldn't ask for better accommodation!”
Reviewed April 15, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Considering the short notice we had to find accommodation in Edinburgh over Easter weekend, we weren't expecting the luck we had when we found Lisa's home.
The house was extremely clean on arrival, stocked with linen, towels, and all utensils you would need in the kitchen. Lisa had prepared a handy travel guide with maps and advice, and had very kindly left some chocolates and champagne for us.
The location was a bonus in itself, we were 10 mins walk from the centre/Royal Mile End, but also a stones throw away from local pubs, supermarkets etc.
We had a really amazing time in Edinburgh, and would definitely come back to Lisa's - I would highly recommend it to anyone from a young group of travelers to a family with young children.
Thank you!

i was so pleasantly surprised by this little apartment in the centre of Edinburgh, and the owners thoughtful little touches made me feel welcome from the moment I entered the flat! Centrally situated with a great choice of eating and shopping very close by. I will certainly return!
