A Perfect Home-Away!

  • 5 out of 5
What a gem! My first trip to Edinburgh, I was setting out on totally new adventures. Carol made everything perfect. Where do I start?....comphy living room with travel books and helpful tips from past guests; a well-stocked, cosy kitchen; bright, cheerful bedrooms with my very own view of Arthur's Seat. The apartment was impeccably clean, with many thoughtful conveniences a traveler might need. The neighborhood is safe, quiet, easily accessible to city attractions by bus and on foot. Especially convenient was the right-next-door ATM and grocery that sold everything from stamps to fresh pastries to great local cheese.

What a gem! Thanks, Carol, for making Edinburgh feel just like home!

Home from home

  • 5 out of 5
Every possible attention to detail has been given to make this flat a real home from home, and I couldn’t fault the flat or the effort put in by Carol (the owner) to make sure we had everything we needed in terms of provisions and information about the local area. I brought my 3 small children for a short stay, which isn’t easy at the best of times, but everything I could need was there, and a supermarket literally across the road. What was provided in the kitchen way exceeded my expectations - jams, sauces, tea/coffee, breakfast cereal etc. – even a loaf of bread and some milk in the fridge! There were toys and books for the kids, WIFI, films and more. The flat itself and location were lovely, with a safe parking spot for the car and plenty of attractions within an easy walk. I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay for a thoroughly enjoyable and stress free stay in Edinburgh! I will most definitely try to stay here again when I visit again.

Absolutely lovely all around!

  • 5 out of 5
This flat offered a great, comfortable homebase in a safe, clean neighborhood--with an assigned parking spot.

This property was ideal for us: very well-maintained, in a quiet apartment block. I had been torn with taking a unit closer to the Castle, but--after touring that area--I was very pleased that we stayed here, which was far more quiet. It is a only a quick walk to Holyrood Palace, Parliament, Dynamic Earth, and the start of the hikes for Arthur's Seat (as well as the start of the Royal Mile).

Truth be told, we did go up a wrong street on our way to the Royal Mile, but a pleasant bystander set us straight. Had I paid attention to the great information packets that Carol had left, we would have been fine from the start.

That evening, we did go through the folders that Carol had left, which included maps as well as restaurant reviews,menus, and bus schedules.

What an amazing, gracious, well-organized and wonderful hostess Carol is! One, she baked us shortbread, left a dram of scotch, and also gave us a special Scottish breakfast patties, only made and sold in Scotland (Carol told us the name, but I can't find my note.)

The end result was she provided delicious treats as well as stocked the kitchen with milk, juice, cereals, butter, jams, marmalade, sugar, teas, coffee, honey and sauces! And the kitchen had every essential pot, pan, utensil, and dish we could have wanted. In our entire visit, we thought of only one thing we would have liked that wasn't there: some leftover plastic grocery bags. Everything else was at hand!

Carol's great customer service extended to her coming the next day to troubleshoot the WiFi. It turns out our son had disconnected a cable. Though it was our mistake, Carol was incredibly gracious and got the service working for us.

I would highly recommend the property. It was spacious, with good storage and many positive attributes beyond the convenience for sightseeing. Carol thought of everything: new and classic DVDs, books on local history and more. She even had new slippers for us, though we did not need to use them: the flooring was clean, the carpet soft, so we felt comfortable going barefoot.

Because of the great location, we enjoyed the Royal Mile, a hike on Arthur's Seat, a tour of Parliament, and more! And we had a most relaxing refuge to return to. While the bedrooms offer great views of Arhur's Seat, the livingroom and kitchen look out onto a thick stand of trees. It was indeed lovely.
