About Rona Ounsley

Caroline and Richard both live and work in Edinburgh. We bought this flat in 2013 and have renovated and decorated the property to a very high standard. We love independent travel and holiday extensively - so like to think we know what is important for holiday accommodation. As we both work full time, we asked Rona to manage the holiday rental for us, through Lovely Lettings.

We are both very sociable and thoroughly enjoy meeting our guests, giving information and sharing some of our favourite recommendations, to help ensure you get the best out of your stay in Scotland.

Could not be better

A beautiful, classically Edinburgh, apartment; well placed for the Univeristy Kings buildings (10 minute walk), and the city (even with a bus stop right outside the apartment). It has everything you need, very comfortable and great views of Arthur's seat.

quiet neighborhood gem

  • 5 of 5

what a lovely home cozy living room with small fireplace and huge windows onto the garden...2 large bedrooms that were very comfy.... the bath was large with a great shower or you could soak in the tub... the kitchen also has a large window overlooking the garden it had all we needed to make and enjoy breakfast or dinner in the flat...a small grocery is 2 blocks away and they make fresh croissants daily..the post office is across the street from the grocery and the bus stop is right outside the flat making it easy to get to town and back....we are in our 60,s and had no problem with the flight of stairs to the flat but you should be aware that there is one flight of stairs incase thats a consideration for you...its a quiet established neighborhood we just loved it and would return place we stayed in the whole trip

Elegant and ideal for our stay in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

This lovely apartment, located in an upscale, quiet neighborhood, provided an ideal location for our stay for four adults. Public transportation and taxis were readily available and a well-stocked local sundries shop was a short walk away. Booking was handled very professionally by the agent and we received a warm welcome from the owner. I highly recommend this wonderful apartment!

We could not have been happier with the property! The owners are a treat, absolutely accommodating in every aspect. The apartment is everything you could ask for - extra clean, comfy, wonderful beds! beautiful modern kitchen, great TV, nice big bathroom with a soaking tub - just wonderful. The bus outside the door will take you right downtown, where you can get anywhere you'd like to go. I highly recommend the property. (And I'm fussy.)

Highly recommend this flat

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this flat. It's clean, quiet and spacious. I spent five nights in Sept 2015. It's a stones throw from both arriving and departing buses to/from the city center. From the airport we took the tram and caught bus 41 to within a block of the house (I was concerned I'd drive on the wrong side of the road - so we used public transportation everywhere). I found Hollyrood castle to be much better than Edinburgh castle. We also took the train out to the countryside to see Abbotsford and Rosalyn chapel. Scots are very hospitable. The wife and I are already planning our return.
