We've just returned from a visit in Di and Wattie's apartment in Edinburgh - our family of four including children ages five and seven. We have stayed in about 10 HomeAway properties in the past five years in the UK, France, Switzerland and the US and Di and Wattie's flat is by far the nicest we've ever encountered.
Firstly, the apartment itself is beautiful and flows very nicely. Each room is large and has loads of sun. The rooms are connected via a large rectangular entryway so the overall feeling is very cozy and connected, yet all rooms have heavy high quality doors helping to manage sound and privacy - super handy when the children went to bed.
The flat is the best equipped we've ever encountered. The dishware, flatware and cookware is at least as high a quality as we have at home, and all in perfect condition. There was not a single need that went unmet, from the top quality corkscrew to the egg cups to the big ironing board and two hair dryers. The appliances (toaster, dishwasher, gas hob, etc) are top quality. And it is CLEAN. Honestly, I returned home to do a good scrubbing of my own kitchen, this flat inspired me so!
The flat is located a stone's flow from tons of pubs, restaurants and boutiques (and a Sunday market in Stockbridge) yet is blissfully quiet at night.
We had such a fantastic long weekend in Edinburgh and squeezed so much into such a short stay. But the real highlight for all of us was returning each evening to our little home from home in New Town, Edinburgh.
If HomeAway gave out awards to star properties Di and Wattie's flat would be sure to win top prize - a real example for how great the self-catering experience can be. On top of it all, the flat offers an extremely good value.
We'll be back for sure!! Thanks Di!!
