Guestbook comments from the owner

The owners' personal and prompt attention from the moment of inquiry promised an outstanding experience; we were not disappointed. The size, layout, and facilities were perfect for our group of eight, which ranged in age from 10 months to nearly 70. Nearby markets--from small shops to gourmet fare--as well as excellent carry-out options within a five-minute walk made it possible to have nearly all meals in the well-appointed Penthouse without missing out on local flavors and culture. The middle generation also had a great night out within easy walking distance. The nearby playground and easy bus to the zoo were a plus; the walk to Holyrood and Royal Mile was pleasant for those who like to explore on foot. The owners go out of their way to make guests comfortable--and even pampered.

Excellent, super clean!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent condo in Edinburgh that exceeded our expectations. Very thoughtfully and meticulously arranged condo with all required amenities for a great vacation. It was super clean and also very well located. Supermarkets and restaurants are a short walk away. Eddie was extremely organized and kept us well informed about our stay. He also left some wine and local goodies for us to enjoy!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Penthouse was very well equipped. Eddie had thought of everything! We particularly appreciated the stair gate. For us it was a winner. We would certainly recommend this property and hope to be able to return in the future.

Ten Plus Star

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about this apartment and the owner. Everything you could want was in the apartment, hair dryer in each bedroom, air freshener in the bathroom, security system, tons of clothes hangers, clothes dryer that actually dried clothes etc. Everything has been thought of. The welcoming basket was beyond amazing. The apartment was perfect in every way. Quiet, modern, spacious, well furnished, extremely well maintained, convenient, and very comfortable for the 6 of us. We have rented apartments in many cities and this was by far the best one yet. The owner, Eddie, was great to work with, immediate responses and anxious to please.

A top notch apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay. Very close to the city centre.

The apartment was very clean, well equipped and Eddie had left a hamper of goodies!

Eddie was very helpful throughout the booking/payment process and gave me all the information I needed for my stay.

Faultless.

Perfect Home Away experience.

  • 5 of 5

The Penthouse is someplace we hope to stay at again. It was exactly as described and better. We loved the location. A very short walk to the High Street and Edinburgh Castle. The amenities in the Penthouse were awesome. Thank you Eddie for making our stay as if we were staying at a friend's home!

Excellent Edinburgh Rental - with parking!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment rental in Edinburgh was fantastic! Everything was as advertised - first rate apartment and excellent location. Eddie was a great host as well - prompt and helpful replies, a lovely welcome basket and a generous breakfast-stocked fridge. An added perk - free parking! Will definitely stay here again! Five stars plus!

Map

Car: not necessary

Right in the centre of Edinburgh only a 10 minute walk to princes street, and Waverley train station. Located in a very safe exclusive development, so ideal for families as good part of town to walk at any time of the day or night. Off the main roads so quiet with no passing traffic. The penthouse has its own parking, however once you've parked your car you probably won't use it as sightseeing can easily be done by foot. Excellent public transport only a couple of minutes walk away. Ideal location for sightseeing. The Playhouse theatre, and an Omni Multiplex cinema complex, are only a 5 minute walk away. Many restaurants, bars, shops etc as all within short walking distance. Supermarket only a 2 minute walk away.
