A smart and accessible apartment
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Duncan Street. It provided ideal access to The Festival and would be a wonderful location throughout the year. Sarah kindly greeted us with provisions for our stay - staples like milk, butter, a range of condiments etc. The flat is bright, spacious and very clean. We found it so comfortable and welcoming, and highly recommend it. One slight drawback could be the stairs, but we didn't mind at all and loved the views if gave us. Thank you very much Sarah
A family of four (kids ages 4 and 8), this flat was absolutely perfect for our one-month stay. Likely to go back to Edinburgh (what a beautiful, friendly, and fun city), we would stay here in a heartbeat. Sarah had everything perfectly clean and organized, and it was absolutely seamless to make this bright flat with great views a home away from home.
A great home away from home
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this modern, comfortable and well-equipped location: every basic item was supplied. Close to shops, eating places and bus transport. The many stairs are the only drawback, but the view from this bright apartment is great.
Look no further
Another great week at Duncan Street. From the welcome pack through the perfectly equipped flat and fabulous views to the quick and easy access to the city (bus or walk) plus the excellent welcome and service at Duncan Street Baptist Church next door, as well as the local eateries, we wanted for nothing from beginning to end. My only note of caution would be to those who have difficulty with stairs, but we will certainly be back as soon as we can.
Fantastic " Home from Home"
We felt so lucky we found this holiday rental for the four weeks we were in Edinburgh. It is in an excellent location with everything you need close by...buses to the city centre, Botanic Gardens, Zoo, Leith etc are about three minutes walk away and there are great restaurants, pubs, take aways and mini marts within minutes of the flat.
The accommodation was very comfortable with everything you needed to make you feel right at home. Lots of extras you don't normally find in a holiday rental...plenty spare linen, towels , lots of books, games, cds, dvds and everything you could need in the kitchen .
The car parking space was a real bonus as holiday rentals with a proper dedicated parking space are very thin on the ground. The views from the flat were spectacular, especially to the south and the Moorfoot Hills although we also enjoyed the view of Arthur Seat and Salisbury Crags from the north facing windows.
All in all this is an excellent holiday flat and we will almost certainly return.
Lovely flat with the feel of home
The flat is well laid out and very nicely finished and furnished, with great views and easy access to the centre, lots of buses but not too far to walk if it takes your fancy. The best thing for me though was how easy the owner makes it to stay there. All the little touches that make it feel like home, even down to sandwich boxes and those plastic clips for bags, plus an absolute library of information. You will not regret booking.
Located on the south side of the city, close to the university, the flat has superb views to Salisbury Crags to the north and the Pentland Hills to the south. Many of the attractions of the historic city centre are within walking distance, with the Royal Mile being a pleasant 20 minute stroll across the Meadows. The flat has its own private off-street parking space and there are numerous local buses nearby. There are good local shops within 2 minutes' walk, including a supermarket, an organic food store, a butcher and a chemist, as well as several fascinating antique shops. There are many welcoming neighbourhood cafes and restaurants nearby. From the flat you can enjoy spectacular walks up Arthurs Seat and Blackford Hill. There are six golf courses run by the local council, and the Royal Commonwealth Pool is 5 minutes from the flat on foot. The Queens Hall and Festival Theatre are both within fifteen minutes' walk.
