Beautiful Property, Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

Kate greeted us at the property to drop off the keys and show us round, which was very welcome. The facilities are excellent, and there was more than enough space for the six of us. A great choice for the Fringe festival, as lots of the better venues are really close by. Can't recommend this place enough!

Superb location for enjoying the Festival

  • 5 of 5

Clean, well equipped apartment with spacious bedrooms and easy access to the Fringe events, which is what we came for.

Some late night street noise is the trade off for the location but certainly not a deal breaker! The kitchen and dining area is a little on the small side if you want to cook elaborate meals, but perfectly adequate for breakfast and oven ready meals. We tended to eat out anyway as there is plenty of local choice for food.

Kate, the owner responds quickly to e-mails and provides plenty of information for making the most of Edinburgh.

From booking through to staying, everything was a very pleasant experience. We'll be back!

Edinburgh was absolutely lovely!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Edinburgh was absolutely lovely, the apartment location was great, walking distance to everything including restaurants, groceries, museums, the castle, the train station and whatever you may need, my kids were delighted with the frozen yoghurt store across the street. We did not need a car to move around, we used the train to go to Stirlin and Inverness for two days, also safe and very efficient. The apartment is is located in a very safe area, people walking at any time at night without any worries. Property managers Kate and her husband were there to great us and gave us recommendations and great info about the apartment and the city. They are a lovely and very friendly couple.

Willy, Ines and the little ones

Great Location for a trip to the Fringe

  • 5 of 5

This apartment lived up to all the good reviews it has already received. Kate, the owner, was there to meet us despite our train being considerably delayed, and was very welcoming. The flat is very comfortable and well appointed, and in a superb location for exploring the city. Everything we wanted to get to, including Fringe venues, was in easy walking distance. There is a certain amount of traffic noise at night, but only to be expected in a city centre location during Festival time. Thank you for a lovely base for our holiday.

Great central location to stay in Edinburgh

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks while visiting Edinburgh for a conference. The flat provides real value for money compared to hotel prices. It has three very large bedrooms, a small but functional kitchen and a dining area. It is very centrally located, being a10 minutes walk to Princess street and "downtown" Edinburgh and a few minutes walk from the University. The property is very clean and well maintained. The owner provided good customer service showing some flexibility about check-out time, which was very appreciated. There are pubs and restaurants nearby. Highly recommended. The only downside is that it can be a little noisy on Friday and Saturdays nights but there is a back bedroom, which is much more quiet.
