Great location for Edinburgh holiday

My husband and I accompanied our daughter to Edinburgh for a week before she started her term at University of Edinburgh this month. We found the flat to be very spacious and comfortable with all the amenities we needed, and we couldn't ask for a better location from which to explore the fantastic city sites and it's lovely people. Susan and Dave are so helpful and friendly, they make you feel very welcome. We look forward to visiting Edinburgh again soon and staying at this "home away from home."

Terrific location that exceeded our expectations. Close to everything and certainly a walkable location to the train, bus stop, restaurants, shopping, Edinburgh Castle, etc. Charming apartment with all the amenities. The apartment was very clean and well equipped. The description of the apartment by the owner is completely accurate. We really enjoyed our time in Edinburgh and would look to return some day in the future and stay in this apartment. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. Thanks, we really enjoyed our stay!!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that the apartment proved to be a good base for your visit to the city. It's not always easy pleasing different generations and it's great that you all enjoyed your time here. The central location allows one to make the most of whatever time one has and I am very glad that you found the apartment close to all the tourist sights, the transport links and plenty restaurants nearby. We look forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future. Have a good summer. Best regards Susan

Very satisfied group leaders

I booked this apartment for four group leaders (high school teachers) from Switzerland. Communication was easy and everything went as planned. My clients were extremely happy with the apartment. It's hard to get more central than this! On arrival, we had a couple of questions, called the management company contact and were helped out immediately. Many thanks! David
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review on behalf of your guests, David. I am very pleased that they were happy with the accommodation and loved the location. It's great that they enjoyed their time in Edinburgh and managed to fit in sightseeing in the city as well as their group work. We hope to be able to welcome them back next year. Many thanks and best wishes Susan.

I often rent flats when I travel, preferring them to hotels. My experiences have generally been good; this flat exceeded expectations. It is every bit as lovely as the photos, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. In addition, the proximity to shopping, site-seeing and transportation cannot be beat (there is a taxi queue opposite the front door and the train station is only blocks away). Susan is also a pleasure to deal with and attentive to her guests. As lovely as Edinburgh is, my visit was definitely enhanced by these wonderful accommodations.

Owner's Response: What a great endorsement, thank you so much - we are very pleased that our apartment measured up to your expectations and that you were happy with everything. It's great that you enjoyed the city so much and got around without any trouble. We hope that this trip has whetted your appetite for Scotland and that you will return again soon. Thanks again. Best wishes Susan

Amazing stay in a wonderful location

Where do I start. This was the perfect apartment for our Edinburgh visit. It was a great space for my family to spread out and enjoy some down time after having a fun filled day in the city. All of the sites are within walking distance and the shopping nearby was wonderful! Susan made the whole process easy and even had dinner suggestions for us! We will be back. Dena

We are delighted that you enjoyed your time in the city and also got to see more of Scotland on this trip. We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back at some time in the future. Enjoy your travels and thanks again. Best wishes Susan
