Hello I am Michelle, I am married to Mark, a Mum of four children, a Grandmother of two and a busy homemaker. My husband comes from Edinburgh while I am from South Wales and lived in Edinburgh most of my life, a city that I love. I have always enjoyed being a mum and making a comfortable home for my family, a skill that I am able to transfer to hosting Auld Reekie's Nook to ensure that you have a welcoming, comfortable stay with that feeling of family care.

Wonderful apartment in great location
My wife and I recently traveled to Edinburgh and found this wonderful apartment right near Old Town and all the great sites. It's a very short walk to the Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle, and several other great sites and shopping. There are conveniently located coffee shops and grocery stores for you to stock up with snacks and foods as needed and the apartment had everything we needed. Michelle was a great host and met us at the apartment to talk about the location and give recommendations on things to do. Highly recommend staying here and you can walk or do a short Uber/cab to everything you'll want to see in Edinburgh.

Thank you so much Jon. It was a pleasure meeting you both. You were perfect guests and I look forward to seeing you again :)
Absolutely fantastic apartment, ideally situated!
We have just returned from a few nights away for the fringe festival and couldn't be happier with our choice of accommodation!! Michelle was lovely, kept in good contact from the moment of booking to meeting us on the first day to talk us through where to find everything in the apartment and how to use it. There was everything you needed. The little touches with the biscuits, wine even milk and cans of coke were so lovely and unexpected. We felt at home straight away. The location is ideal only a 10 min walk to grassmarket and 15 mins to the royal mile, absolutely perfect! Had an absolute ball, hoping to come back again and stay in the apartment as we couldn't have asked for more, thank you!
Thank you so much it was an absolute pleasure having you all stay and I look forward to seeing you again :)
Immaculate throughout and all the comforts of your own home.
Really enjoyed staying at the property. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family. A great location with easy access to so many good restaurants and pubs. Also really easy to get to pretty much the whole of the city.
