About Donna

Donna was born in Edinburgh and has spent most of her life here. Adrien is French and moved to Edinburgh with his work a few years ago.

Donna purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Donna chose Haymarket

The property offers a comfortable base for travellers close to transport hubs and the city centre. Being on the ground floor, it is good for people who are slightly less mobile.

The West End is a popular area of the city as it is quiet yet central with beautiful Victorian buildings.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

The Flat was welcoming, clean, cheerful , and spacious. One could walk into the city, however the busses are only a city block away and they come frequently. Get to know the schedules and have correct change when boarding any bus. There is a small grocery store next to the closest bus stop. Donna and her husband were accommodating and helpful. Great vacation!!

The best of everthing

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible Georgian home... The interior of the flat is beautifully designed and the view of St. Mary's church from the bedroom window takes your breath away. The kitchen is modern and up to date as well as the beautiful bath. Comfortable touches everywhere and a quiet neighborhood. Donna is there to help and she and her family are a delight. The city of Edinburgh (during the Fringe) was fabulous and we enjoyed all the City had to was great to come 'home' to this cozy, comfortable home! We will be back!

Donna and Adrien were great hosts who met me at the property to ensure I had everything I needed for my stay. The apartment was beautifully decorated, comfortable and came with everything I needed for my stay. Loved the private park!

West End Gem!

  • 5 of 5

I don't think we have ever had a more beautiful city-scape view to wake up to each day. This flat is perfectly located in the West End, just minutes to the Haymarket station and all modes of transportation. Shop at a market and eat in or choose from endless restaurant options. (Breakfast at the Coates Cafe is highly recommended!) This flat is perfectly appointed with up-to-date amenities. The flat offers a quiet, central location for easy sightseeing trips - far from the crush of tourists in Old Town. Our hosts, Donna and Adrian, were friendly and very responsive to any questions during our week and prior to our stay. We so enjoyed our stay in this wonderful flat and hope to return soon!

Perfect location flat

  • 5 of 5

Located in quiet West End of town near eveything. HAymarket trAin station 5 minute walk. From there explore Stirling and St. ANdrews. The flat is 19th century with 21st century amenities. Very bright interior with a park in front. Young owners very nice and accomodating. They even stopped by to let us back in when I lock myself out👌?. Highly recommended!

Perfect place to stay in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

After week of touring the west coast of Scotland and staying in B & B's of varying quality, it was heavenly to spend almost a week in this exceedingly beautiful apartment that is perfectly located on a quiet crescent just on the edge of New Town. We were able to walk everywhere from this location. The apartment itself is perfectly appointed, including a washing machine (which we desperately needed after two weeks in the UK). Donna's hospitality was the best we have experienced with VRBO so far. We recommend this listing enthusiastically!!
