I grew up in Glasgow & Edinburgh and my daughter is at Edinburgh University - so we use the apartment as a 'home from home' to go and visit as we now live over 5 hours away in Sheffield in England.

Stuart Carmichael purchased this apartment in 2007

The whole area is vibrant and developing despite the recession and the local people are all so friendly - we couldn't resist Leith !

It has bars and bistros and cosy pubs and 'posh' restaurants but also takeaways and local shops and national supermarkets.

The apartment is relatively new - less than 15 years old - and was in a quiet location with grass, trees and parking to the rear.

It just seems ideal for local living or popping upto town.

Fantastic accommodation and a great weekend

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 03-Mar-2014
  • Date of Stay: Feb 2014
The property is lovely, completely spotless and had everything we needed. The flat is spacious, modern and comfortable. After a long trip up from Brighton, it was great to feel at home straight away. Stuart was extremely helpful and there is lots of information in the flat about the local area, places to eat and things to do.
Edinburgh never fails to disappoint, and the visit was made better by staying in such welcoming accommodation with easy access to all areas of the city.

Thanks Stu, we'll be coming again!
Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments - I am glad you enjoyed your visit - do come again !

New year, great place to stay and explore

Stayed and celebrated 2013/14 Hogmanay in Edinburgh. The apartment is well appointed with parking and is ideally situated in a safe and pleasant area, it is very comfortable and has everything you need for a great stay, much better than staying in a hotel. Lots of very good restaurants nearby, Britannia tourist attraction within walking distance and local bus stops just around the corner. All communications with Stuart the owner were clear and concise. Highly recommended and would definitely stay again when visiting Edinburgh
Owner's Response: Happy New Year ! - glad you had a great time - do please come to stay again........

A cosy base for Xmas celebrations

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 27-Dec-2013
  • Date of Stay: Dec 2013
We stayed for 2 nights over Xmas for family celebrations and we were so glad we booked this apartment rather than a hotel. It was perfect for the four of us - very comfortable with spacious clean bedrooms, a good size lounge area and a well-equipped kitchen with everything you could need. The en suite master room plus twin room and second bathroom/shower room meant no queuing in the morning and although it took us a while to work out the heating system, once we cracked it the apartment was very warm and comfortable despite the wild gales outside. Easy parking nearby is a bonus and Leith itself is worth an explore with many good local eateries and pubs. We would definitely stay again and can certainly recommend this property.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments - I am delighted you came to stay......do come again !

My family stayed for 6 nights for our daughters wedding in Edinburgh and we were delighted with the apartment. It was very comfortable and warm, no heating needed, even in October! The rooms were spacious and well equipped with everything we needed and more! It was just like a home from home! Thank you Stuart, we will be back! Christie Family from N Ireland and Scotland.
Owner's Response: Hello Eileen & family - thank you for your kind comments - I would be delighted to welcome you back ! Kind Regards - Stuart

Wish we could have stayed longer!

Stuart was very accomodating to my many questions related to Edinburgh, the aprtment and proximity to Heriot Watt University. The apartment was spacious and clean and had all the amenities we required for our stay. There was plenty of pamphlets and information on tourist attractions and we found this to be very helpful as we planned our days in Edinburgh. I would definitely recommend this apartment for a family as we were two adults and two children. The evening hours were very quiet and there is a nearby park where you can take your children. It was nice to see this was used by the local residents. We walked to Edinburgh on several days and enjoyed the journey. It is a bit of a walk after a day of touring attractions but there are a number of places you can stop on the way if you need a break. We will definitely stay here again should we have the opportunity to return to Scotland.
Owner's Response: Hello Angela - thank you for your kind comments - look forward to you visiting again !
