About Rhona Douglas

My name is Rhona, I live in Edinburgh with my family. I was brought up in Africa and have travelled quite a bit when I was younger. I used to work in the tourist industry in hotels and travel trade and also helped to run my parents guest house, so I know a bit about what people are looking for when far from home.

Rhona Douglas purchased this apartment in 2014

Guestbook comments from the owner

Rhona was really nice and was there waiting for us even though we arrived

pretty late (thanks for that).

The flat is very nice, warm and clean. Located very close to a main road,

but very quiet and with private parking. Had everything you could want if

staying for a long period.

Cracking wee flat in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 4 nights over Hogmanay, and it's perfect. Right on several main bus routes (although limited service over festive season), and easy walking to city centre, Arthur's Seat, and shops. Would definitely stay again. Parking included, and Rhona left supplies in kitchen, including tea, coffee, milk, cereal, bread, eggs and there were books, dad's and games available.

Great location to city centre

  • 5 of 5

Perfect size for 2 people. Located on bus route directly to the city centre. Safe area, we travelled by bus from the Tatoo at 11:30 pm, bus stop right out front. We arrived early and Rhona was just finishing getting it ready for our early arrival.

Lovely flat in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I spent the weekend at Rhona's flat as a base to explore Edinburgh. The flat is in a great location, just 10/15 mins bus ride to Princes street with a bus stop right outside. Having a parking space for the car was also an added bonus as I have stayed in Edinburgh several times before and always has to pay to park. The flat itself was clean, nicely laid out and well equipped for a short stay. Rhona met us at the flat to let us in and show us around. Overall a lovely weekend, would definitely use the flat again. Thanks!

Kid-friendly

  • 5 of 5

Price, location and play park on site were why we chose this place. We had our car and it was only 10 minutes to the Zoo, plus easy access for day trips to St Andrews and North Berwick. Bus to centre is about 30 minutes one way (including walk and wait) but could be an hour in traffic. Convenient though. Place was so clean, Rhona was lovely, flat had everything we need. Stairwell smells of smoke but apartment doesn't at all. Pillows are lumpy so bring your own if you are fussy about that. Highly recommend this place!
