A wonderful small house with garden and a view of Edinburgh Castle only about 400 metres away. The facilities in the house are excellent and it has a homely feel. The owners are extremely helpful and available if necessary. This is the third time we have used their properties and have never been disappointed.

In a great location to explore all areas in Edinburgh, yet private and quiet. Decorated in a bright, modern and fresh way. Friendly and helpful owner. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
