Lovely flat in a wonderful location

The flat had everything we needed after a VERY long flight from the US. Susan is a gracious hostess who provided lots of info about Edinburgh. The four of us were very comfortable, the description doesn't do it justice! As a VRBO owner I really appreciated all of the thoughtful touches. Highly recommended!!
Owner's Response: Dear Tori
So sorry to take so long to respond to your review - somehow the notification landed in my spam box and I've just fished it out! Many thanks indeed for your kind words - we were delighted that you were comfortable in the apartment and enjoyed your time in Edinburgh. Hope it's been a good start to the New Year for you and we wish you enjoyable travels in 2014. Thanks again. Best regards Susan

Definitely a 5 Star Experience

  • Review Submitted: 22-Apr-2013

I can't come up with enough superlatives to describe this apartment. It's even better than described. The location would be virtually impossible to beat in terms of access to historical sites, restaurants, shopping, public transportation, etc. It was easy to walk back to the apartment for an afternoon break prior to heading back out in the evening to enjoy more of the wonderful city of Edinburgh.The views of the castle from the apartment are a definite plus. The apartment is spacious, comfortable, and incredibly clean. Susan was absolutely delightful to work with. If we're ever fortunate enough to return to Edinburgh we will definitely stay here again if Susan has a vacancy.
Owner's Response: It was our great pleasure having such lovely guests stay in our apartment. We were delighted that the apartment met your expectations and really thrilled that you enjoyed your time in Edinburgh so much. Thank you very much for choosing to stay with us and if you are ever back in the city, we would love to welcome you back. Our very best wishes Susan

Luxury in the heart of Edinburgh

Our family of three spent 6 days in this wonderful flat. Everything was as advertised and worked properly. The owner was easy to work with. We easily walked from the flat into Old Town and founds lots of great food options in New Town. In fact we packed lightly so we walked from the train station to the flat when we arrived. My wife enjoyed strolling the Royal Mile. We took a day trip to St. Andrews by walking to the train station and taking an hour long journey.

This property was exactly as advertised, which is to say well-appointed and excellently located. Can't imagine that there is a better base for exploring Edinburgh and all its wonders. Susan was professional and approachable in all dealings. There were two couples in this rental and we were all four very happy. We would love to return to Edinburgh and to this great apartment. Thanks, Susan!
Owner's Response: Dear Susan

My family including 3 adults and 2 children stayed at this apartment for 5 days in May. The property was exactly what we were looking for in self-catering and it's location in Edinburgh could not have been better. The description of location is accurate. You would not require personal transportation if only visiting sites in Edinburgh. Most sites are within walking distance. Bus stops are located at the front door and within a block. Money exchange or bank sites are within a block. I am gluten free and was delighted to have a full grocery store within a block and a half. The apartment is beautiful, spacious and well-maintained. It is always nice to look out the kitchen window and see Edinburgh Castle. We recommend visiting the Castle, the Scotch Whiskey Experience, the galleries and the stores. Find time to take in a golf experience. The restaurants were all excellent and quickly understood my gluten free needs. This flat permitted us to breakfast in, pack lunches for the day out and rest well at the end of the day. The owner was always available by phone and very helpful. We wished we could have stayed longer and hope to return.
