“Just perfect”
Reviewed 5 weeks ago for a stay in June 2018

person found this review helpful

This apartment is perfect in every respect. Location is great being in the heart of the Georgian Edinburgh new town just a minute from George Street. The apartment has been thoughtfully furnished and everything you might need is provided including a generous welcome hamper of Scottish fare. The 3 bedrooms are airy and spacious and the beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped and is a lovely space to enjoy breakfast whilst taking in the views (the Firth of Forth one way and the Castle the other).
There are copious guide books and fully detailed instructions for the apartment. There are also plenty of suggestions for things to do, places to visit, places to eat etc.
The meet and greet was very efficient with everything explained fully. The hosts made themselves available for the whole of our stay but we didn't need to call on them.
Added bonus for Ian Rankin fans; the apartment is 30 seconds from the "Oxford" bar

“Perfect home away from home in Edinburgh”
Reviewed 7 May 2018 for a stay in April 2018

From the very first communication with Ian and Helen, I had a feeling the universe was looking out for us with this stay. I was booking a place for my wife and me to share with my father, turning 70 during the stay, my stepmother, and a good friend. Ian and Helen's apartment is in the most perfect location I could imagine in Edinburgh. You can look out the window to the right and see the castle perched on the dead volcano, and to the left you can see the Firth of Forth. Around the corner is the famous Oxford Bar, which we were delighted to frequent every evening. Having the reserved parking spots out back was a huge plus for us since we had 2 cars. Inside, the apartment was something out of a dream, everyone was oohing and ahhing as we arrived. All the furnishings, mattresses, bedding and linens were top notch, the kitchen was very well equipped, and Ian had even left a basket of goodies on the table and various drinks in the refrigerator, which we all thought was a really thoughtful and hospitable touch. All 5 of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I could rave about it all day, and we did, but suffice to say we would absolutely book this place again without question if we needed a spot big enough for 5 people. Thank you so much to Ian and Helen for helping to make my dad's 70th birthday trip a huge success!

“Perfect home base for Edinburgh”

My family stayed here for our first trip to Edinburgh. Helen and Ian communicated with us often before we left for our trip, answering our questions and offering suggestions.
Ian met us when we arrived and explained everything about the apartment and the neighborhood (maps, recommendations, etc.). It was wonderful to return to this rental each evening to relax before exploring again the following day. Definitely recommend!

“Perfect City Break”
Reviewed 19 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

people found this review helpful

Love, love, loved it. Five ladies of a certain vintage arrived to celebrate another birthday.

The climb up several flights of stairs was a bit daunting but once inside we were transported to a world of luxury and the adventure began. The generous hamper Ian had provided got us off to a good start!

Two days of bliss followed venturing out to the shops occasionally with King Street being directly to the right and Queen Street to the left.

Departing the quality accommodation proved very difficult! Perfect city break - top marks!!

Reviewed 26 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Location is perfect, just a short walk away from Princes Street and the castle. Plenty of toys and books for children and adults. The hamper was a lovely treat. Ian the owner talked us through everything we would need to know. A home from home.
We will return .

“Edinbourgh apartment could not have been better”

This three bedroom apartment was perfect for my family of four adults and two children. Each bedroom had plenty of room and the two bathrooms made it easy for everyone to get ready for our daily excursions around the city. The location was blocks from the castle and the Royal Mile.

Our host was quite gracious, meeting us when we arrived. He toured us around the apartment and showed us the many amenities of the place.

I don't think we could have chosen a better place.
