Gorgeous updated gem in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this 3-bedroom 2-bath apartment! Hardwood floors, huge windows, gorgeous modern bathrooms, super high ceilings. This apartment had it all! Perfectly located on a surprisingly quiet street just blocks away from the city center. Francois quickly came to our rescue when I foolishly locked both sets of keys in the apartment. Everything was clean, well-stocked kitchen with plenty of refrigerator space. Grocery store half block away. This was the perfect base for us to stay in while we explored Edinburgh and the surrounding areas.

Great apartment/location, spotlessly clean. Management - not so good.

  • 4 of 5

We found the apartment spotlessly clean on arrival - thanks Donna. Well positioned for most must-see venues and eateries. Unfortunately, we were virtually surrounded by building work. It would have been better to have been made aware of some minor disruption and noise before our arrival. On the first day out, the main front door lock fell to pieces. I contacted Francois who seemed less than concerned about making the door secure. I made a temporary repair but the lock fell off again later. I managed to secure the lock again with parcel tape, which stayed in place, undisturbed, for the rest of our stay. I suspect that the lock is still unrepaired. There was also some confusion about a requested, and confirmed, change of bed linen and towels, and Donna arrived with the wrong replacements. However, she rummaged around and changed the beds with linen that was in the store cupboard. We washed the towels ourselves. Small niggles ( apart from the potential lack of security ) but totally avoidable.

Absolutely fantastic!!!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was spacious and beautifully decorated. We were 5 adults and there was more than enough room for all of us. The location is about 15 minutes from the Royal Mile. The only hitch was that one of the sets of keys would stick and make getting in a bit of a pain. A very small thing! Would highly recommend the apartment and Francois as a host.

Spacious accommodation in good location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is very spacious with big lovely rooms, and had everything we needed. Very comfortable inside.

It is very convenient for a brisk 10 minute walk up to Princes Street or 15 minutes to the castle. Equally helpful is that it is a mere 5 minutes from Stockbridge and some very good restaurants, for people who prefer to mainly eat out like we do!

Our disappointment is that we weren't informed prior to our arrival about the house being boarded up on ground floor and basement giving a rather more derelict and less picturesque appearance outside. The builders were in every morning from 8am and could be rather noisy, certainly annoying on at least one morning. Therefore our rating is reduced accordingly.

A relaxing Christmas for our whole family

  • 5 of 5

We completely enjoyed our stay here over Christmas this year! Francois met us as soon as we arrived in town and showed us around. The apartment was very clean and comfortable, with plenty of room for all 5 of us to be together, watching movies, but also was large enough that we could get some quiet time alone as well. It was within walking distance of shopping, dining, and attractions. Also, because we stayed several nights and cooked in, we were pleased that two grocery markets were very close. I would rent this property again and I have recommended this to a friend that will be traveling to Edinburgh soon.

A well presented and equipped property

  • 5 of 5

A good family time was had by all all of us who had travelled from New York. Bath and London to be together. It was good to meet Francois at the property on arrival as he could take us through everything we needed to know about the Flat, the environs and Edinburgh. We would recommend it for a stay just out of the bustle of central Edinburgh

The property is located in the city centre so it is within easy walking distance of Waveley Station (15 minute walk), city centre attractions and shops and restaurants. There are a number of good shops and restaurants round the corner on Dundas Street. This street is also well known for its numerous, varied and expensive art galleries!
