“Good base to explore Edinburgh”
Reviewed 26 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Comfortable quarters to explore Edinburgh, with a safe parking space to leave your car. Best for people who like to walk -- it's a 20 minute walk to the city center and up three flights of stairs. It has a neighborhood feel, with local shops and restaurants nearby. The owners were wonderful, and available for any needs. We enjoyed our three-night stay and would be happy to book again should we return!

“What is there not to like?”
Reviewed 25 January 2016 for a stay in October 2015

Not sure how anyone could find anything wrong with this apartment. The location is very central being within walking distance of both the City and Leith; plus direct buses to further afield (eg the Zoo); and a good selection of shops and restaurants within stumbling distance.

The apartment itself is spacious and well appointed. Very useful having 2 bath/shower rooms. The lounge/dining room is well furnished and having an additional table for the kids to grab breakfast at in the kitchen was a bonus. Beds were very comfortable.

The owners have given much thought to ensuring the apartment is well equipped and we found everything that we use at home was provided.

“Great base to explore this beautiful city!”
Reviewed 29 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Great apartment if you're looking for a base to explore Edinburgh but away from the real hustle and bustle... still within walking distance of the centre, but super-easy to hop on a bus as well. The fact that the apartment is tucked away down a no-through road means that you get limited traffic noise, however there's plenty of cafes, restaurants and take-aways right on your doorstep as well as a Tesco Express if you want to buy and cook food. It is quite a few floors up, but we didn't mind this (with older kids) as it meant that you didn't get any noise from people above you! The flat itself is spacious, nice and light, and toasty warm to come home to and has everything you need.... plus the owners were lovely too. We had a fab few days exploring, knowing we had somewhere really nice to come home to - perfect :-)
