My partner and I visited Edinburgh for the first time in September 2018 and stayed at Rodney Street, and we had a great time. The flat is spacious (HUGE for just two of us) and stylish – very practical and comfortable, and with fun decor! We loved settling into the flat after our 5-hour drive and it was very easy to feel relaxed. The local area is very quiet and it was wonderful to stay somewhere with on-site parking, which removed a possible worry. Our host Martin was extremely kind and helpful and would always reply to emails/messages quickly both before and during the stay. The flat was clean and had everything we needed – hairdryer, iron, kettle, toaster – and even teabags! Old Town is a 30 minute walk away (uphill!), but Edinburgh is laid out logically so once you’ve done it a few times, you know where you’re going. The walk also allows you to explore the local area on the way which has lots of interesting shops, restaurants and bars.
Whilst in Edinburgh we visited Edinburgh Castle, Camera Obscura, Surgeon’s Hall Museums, Dunnottar Castle (2 hours away), and the National Museum of Scotland. But we also enjoyed staying in one evening and watching a film on the comfy sofa in the lovely flat! We would definitely use a vacation rental again as we liked having the privacy of having the entire place to ourselves, but also the comfort and convenience of a literal home-from-home.
