Guestbook comments from the owner

The owners' personal and prompt attention from the moment of inquiry promised an outstanding experience; we were not disappointed. The size, layout, and facilities were perfect for our group of eight, which ranged in age from 10 months to nearly 70. Nearby markets--from small shops to gourmet fare--as well as excellent carry-out options within a five-minute walk made it possible to have nearly all meals in the well-appointed Penthouse without missing out on local flavors and culture. The middle generation also had a great night out within easy walking distance. The nearby playground and easy bus to the zoo were a plus; the walk to Holyrood and Royal Mile was pleasant for those who like to explore on foot. The owners go out of their way to make guests comfortable--and even pampered.

Absolutely fantastic!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Me and six friends came to Scotland for my birthday and decided to stay in this penthouse for a week and it was the best decision we could make. The penthouse is absolutely fantasic: comfy, spacious, luxurious, convenient. It was everything you could ask for and more. Doreen and Eddie are friendly, responsive and are always available for queries. Unfortunately, there is only a five star rating (it deserves way more) available but this penthouse is a true gem in Edinburgh.

A stunning holiday rental, wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at The Penthouse was nothing short of spectacular. From start to finish everything was well organised, beautifully clean and the apartment itself is stunning. The property is well laid out with a great large kitchen which is fully stocked with everything you would need to cater for family dinners. The welcome basket was a wonderful, thoughtful and welcome gift. The owners really have thought of everything. We cannot recommend this property highly enough if you are looking for somewhere amazing to stay in Edinburgh. It's well located, easy access to the city centre and you can do as much or as little as you like. Well done to the owners of this apartment - we had such a lovely stay and your attention to detail and communication with us were second to none. Highly recommended. The Wallace Family, Sydney, Australia.

Outstanding in every respect

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Penthouse recently with my 23 year old daughter and her best friend. We were completely happy with this immaculate property. Eddie went out of his way to assist us, and was wonderful to work with. We were greeted with great food in the refrigerator for breakfasts, along with coffee, tea, shortbread, jams, a gift package of toiletries, two bottles of wine and more - and an impeccably clean home in absolutely first-rate condition. The kitchen was a pleasure to use - I'd think of something I needed, open a drawer or cupboard door and there it would be. The location was perfect for us - a short walk to Broughton Street, with restaurants and stores, or up to Princes Street. We walked easily to Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle. I've already recommended this property to close friends, and would certainly look forward to staying there again.

Spacious and Comfy

  • 5 of 5

The owners were extremely helpful and kind throughout the entire booking process. As soon as we opened the door, it was welcoming. Myself and the family could not have been more pleased. The Penthouse was clean and had everything you could think of. The space fit the 6 adults and a baby comfortably. The location was very nice, you had something to go to in every direction. If I ever have the opportunity to go back, I will be staying here again.

Bright, Central, Comfortable & Well Equipped

  • 5 of 5

Excellent & professional communication with the owners. This apt. was clean, modern, roomy, comfortable and well equipped. Set in a quiet and very central location my friends (fit and in our 60's) were able to walk to almost everything we wanted to in the city. Edinburgh was my home for many years and it was wonderful to show it off to my Canadian friends. Our stay at the Penthouse contributed to them falling in love with this magnificent city.

The Penthouse - The Perfect Home From Home

  • 5 of 5

The Penthouse is the perfect base for an Edinburgh holiday. Eddie and Doreen's attention to detail is second to none. From the very first moment of contact through to after you've left the property, Eddie and Doreen's only concern is that you have the perfect holiday.

The Penthouse has everything you could possibly need - and more. Many friends visited us during our stay and, like us, were wowed by the location, the fixtures and fittings (all of which are of a very high standard) and the generosity of the owners.

In the future, I would only consider the Penthouse when holidaying in Edinburgh because:

- It's central but quiet and has two parking spaces, great for guests

- It's spacious and very well laid out

- The owners have thought of everything from plenty of towels, to loo roll, to a restaurant guide, to instructions on how to use the washing machine, to a telephone with incoming calls - EVERYTHING!

- The welcome basket is awesome

- There's plenty of eating space: two tables and ample chairs which is great for entertaining

- All of the appliances work well

- The shower is even better than the one we have at home

- The property is very well maintained

- It's non-allergenic - I had no problems with my asthma whatsoever

- There's plenty of cupboard/drawer space and enough hangers so you do not have to half-live from your suitcase

- It's a home from home - because everything is provided for you, you really can do anything you would want to do at home.

Eddie and Doreen are incredible owners. They are friendly and responsive, it felt like no query was ever too much for them. They make you feel not only welcome but also relaxed in their home.

The only problem you might have is trouble leaving!

Location

Car: not necessary

Right in the centre of Edinburgh only a 10 minute walk to princes street, and Waverley train station. Located in a very safe exclusive development, so ideal for families as good part of town to walk at any time of the day or night. Off the main roads so quiet with no passing traffic. The penthouse has its own parking, however once you've parked your car you probably won't use it as sightseeing can easily be done by foot. Excellent public transport only a couple of minutes walk away. Ideal location for sightseeing. The Playhouse theatre, and an Omni Multiplex cinema complex, are only a 5 minute walk away. Many restaurants, bars, shops etc as all within short walking distance. Supermarket only a 2 minute walk away.
