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.

Very good

  • 4 of 5

Could not give this five star's for a couple of picky reasons. Lovely flat in nice area ,free parking outside, milk and a bottle of whiskey greeted us on arrival.

Bad bits, double bed is very very firm,cleaner could be a little more attentive. The flat upstairs could be heard moving about. This said we would use it again

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to write a review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. It is however, very difficult to cater for everyones preference re firmness of mattress and for this reason we have a firm mattress in the front bedroom and a softer mattress in the back bedroom. It is also the first time that the cleanliness of the flat has been mentioned. If you are able to provide more detail, this would be extremely helpful, to allow us to rectify. As the flat is part of a victorian stone building, with origional floorboards, you will inevitable hear the occasional sound of footsteps, but again, this has never been sited as an issue. We are however, glad that you would like to return in the future. Regards Caroline and Richard

Lovely, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Wide, clean and warm flat located in quiet south Edinburgh. Drawing room, bedroom, kitchen are all well-equipped with good furniture. Also, location is very convenient - 10 min walk to Blackford Hill, and next to the bus stop for city center. I will definitely re-visit this flat next time.

Could not be better

  • 5 of 5

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!
