Recent Edinburgh reviews

  • Wonderful base for seeing Edinburgh!

    "Our family of 4 spent 2 nights in Lynn's apartment - just a 10 minute walk from the castle and very centrally located to all major sights. The apartment is cozy but has everything one needs for a comfortable stay. Lynn is very helpful in helping get you settled in - even providing some basic supplies for the first morning's breakfast. The area is just outside the Old Town - and the apartment is in a relatively new apartment building around the corner from the Hilton and close to several mini-supermarkets and numerous cafes. Not as fancy an area as New Town, but OK. Pictures in VRBO are quite representative of the place."

  • Excellent experience

    "Great location for exploring Edinburgh. Very clean and comfortable, well-stocked kitchen with great ease-of-use for breakfast and snacks. WiFi was very good. Jackie is a tremendous hostess and very accommodating. We were allowed early bag drop-off and access. Highly recommend and will return."

  • Excellent flat in Edinburgh

    "We spent five days in this flat. It's a really nice, clean and comfortable place. The owner is a very close person and is worried about guest's comfort and the kind of guest who's going to stay in his flat, so that you will always find it in perfect conditions. It's not far away from city center, and you have facilities (Sainsbury's, shops and coffe shops) close to the place. You will have help anytime if needed. I highly recommend to stay there if you're looking for a quite vacation in Edinburgh with your couple or on your own. You got a good Internet connection."

  • Lovely Georgian Flat - Historic setting Edinburgh

    "We rented this flat during our visit to the Fringe festival this year. It was a bit of a hike- at least 25 minutes to the main venues, but we truly liked being out of the fray since we were there for 9 nights. The apartment is lovely- high ceilings, beautifully decorated and enough kitchen supplies for the light cooking we did in the am and an occasional lunch. We really liked the fact that the owner also provided soap for the laundry and dishwasher, the sink and bathrooms and a nice welcome package of local specialties. Tea and coffee were on hand and the basics which was so appreciated! so hard to stock everyone's apartment when you are traveling. We left goodies in return- Olive oil, nice shampoos from hotels etc. The front room was a bit noisy on the cobblestone street but we were grateful for the extra bed as the two other bedrooms in back have queen or king sized beds. The neighborhood is quiet with upscale restaurants and small markets are easily accessible. This year it was a rainy Fringe, but the days that I didn't feel like walking in the downpour I was happy staying at the apartment and working as it was peaceful and charming. The owner was lovely and accessible via email and Natasha (apartment manager) was readily available, though we never had to call her! The WIFI worked very well, and the neighbors were fairly quiet (and we returned that favor to them!). Would go back in a heart beat! I would recommend this for people who like to walk and are respectful of furniture and high end apartments. I would not suggest this for young children as there are delicate lamps and it is a quiet building- also the walk would be too far for them- but the park is close! Well- behaved teens are great here as they usually don't mind the walk to center of Edinburgh either. Ideal for active older people. Taxis cost about £6.50 GBP to the castle area up on the hill."

Edinburgh Vacation Rentals That Will Make Your Scotland Holiday Memorable

What better way to discover the rich historic and cultural heritage of Scotland than from your choice of Edinburgh vacation rentals from VRBO.com. Edinburgh is chock full of both the contemporary and the traditional—everything from the UNESCO World Heritage site that combines medieval and modern architecture to a wide range of shops and restaurants.

Discover Scotland and Its Rich History

From one of any number of Edinburgh vacation apartments, you can discover the rich Scottish past. During your Scotland travels, you can visit castles and medieval chapels as part of your journey. In the historic capital city of Edinburgh, you can explore the area now known as Old Town. It's here where you find the famous Edinburgh Castle, Grass Market, and Royal Mile. And the nearby East Lothian area has been called the Cradle of Golf and boasts world-famous courses such as Muirfiled, Gullane, and Dunbar. A little known fact is that this area has the highest number of championship courses in the world.

Your Edinburgh vacation rental will allow you to explore this wonderful area from an amenity filled, comfortable home base. These accommodations can range from small cottages to villas—all complete with the comforts of home. You'll be able to take in all the local flavors and scenery of your Scotland travel plans.

Museums Are Numerous in Edinburgh

Visit some of the area's myriad museums such as the Writers' Museum featuring Scotland's great writers including Robert Burns and Sir Walter Scott. The National Gallery of Scotland and the Royal Scottish Academy are certainly not to be missed. Local Scottish food is surely to be on the menu, and the Edinburgh area is full of options to choose from. You can find restaurants featuring traditional Scottish fare, as well as others offering everything from Cantonese to Italian to Indian and everything in between.
