“Lovely spacious apartment”
Reviewed 8 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

David welcomed us on our arrival at his flat and explained how everything worked. We were delighted to find he had left us a basket of fruit, croissants, jam, cereal, etc. David's great service extended to posting on to us an item we had mislaid in the flat which was very much appreciated.
The flat is lovely, with high ceilings, huge windows and good quality furnishings and I slept very well in my comfortable bed. It is very spacious and eight of us could easily sit round the kitchen table. When other family members visited there was plenty of room for all of us to make ourselves comfortable in the large lounge.
Our three-generation family group found the location very convenient, within easy walking distance of the restaurants and other attractions of Leith and close to frequent buses to the city. No need to worry about running short of anything with Tesco, Boots and other big name shops nearby. The children made good use of the large park behind our building while some of us went to see the Dazzle Ship in the dock followed by a stroll along part of the Water of Leith walkway.

“Great flat for our family get together”
Reviewed 29 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

David was very welcoming and provision of breakfast supplies was appreciated. The flat had lots of character and was ideal for large group and allowed us chance to have other family round to celebrate in the flat before heading out. Great to see how Leith has changed over the last 20 years. Would recommend the flat to others. Another shower in the main bathroom would be a good investment.

“Fabulous, spacious apartment - great location, great host!”
Reviewed 15 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This apartment is just beautiful and very spacious making it a very comfortable home from home! It is tastefully decorated, clean and has all the amenities you need with very comfortable beds! It is a pleasure to stay in rather than go out which is saying something in the fantastic city that is Edinburgh. The neighbours were also very friendly too! As it is in the Leith area means the location is perfect, you can easily walk into the city centre and it is an interesting walk as there are many shops, bars and restaurants that you will pass by. Or, if you are in more of a rush, there are lots of buses to choose from taking just 5-10mins to the city centre but it is also well connected to the outer areas of Edinburgh. Leith itself is full of great bars and restaurants, the riverside and shops so it is also well worth spending some time there and taking in the sea air! David (the host) is lovely, he is always very friendly and welcoming and flexible around check in and out times. He is more than happy to help with any information on the city that you may need and because of all that I am a return customer to his apartments - he has two other great places in the Stockbridge area of Edinburgh which I would also recommend for smaller groups/couples/singles. I have stayed in a number of places in Edinburgh but because of the quality of the apartments, and that David is such a wonderful host, his are now my first choice!

“Great Last Minute Booking”
Reviewed 27 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

I booked this flat for a family reunion just before Christmas, David made us very welcome and was helpful in giving us extra sets of keys and letting us extend our check out time. The flat lived up to all of our expectations but the best bits were a huge beautiful lounge where we had out party and a big family kitchen. It was also great having an extra shower room so that there were no queues in the morning! the flat was very clean and warm (essential in Edinburgh in December!). I would thoroughly recommend this flat for families and parties.
PS Try Rock Salt Cafe (3 mins walk away) for a brilliant brunch.

“Old, Dilapidated and not for extended families”
Reviewed 10 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

While the apartment was large and well lit .. there were multiple issues. Its run down and dirty...
the shower in the master bathroom had no water flow... water trickles down!!
the second bathroom is incredibly small and the toilet seat was broken
utensils were dirty
the wooden floors were sticky and the kitchen was sticky with broken cabinets

probably good for backpackers... not ideal for a family at all

“A great find”
Reviewed 16 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I stayed here for my hen night and we all loved the flat - so much better than getting a hotel, and very well stocked. David had left milk in the fridge which was a really nice touch, although I got told off for drinking a cup of tea on my hen weekend haha. I love Leith as well and it's so handy for getting into town. Altogether a huge success.

“Great”
Reviewed 31 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Great property in a great location. Large, bright property which was clean and comfortable. David, the owner, kept in touch from the point of booking and met us at the property at the time we agreed. He showed us how to work the appliances and was happy to recommend places to go and things to do around Edinburgh. This is a great apartment for a weekend away with friends and the parking was a great bonus for us too. Would definitely recommend.
