  • Perfect Location

    "We were 2 couples travelling together without a car. This home is situated close to all of our needs, train, day tour pick ups, restaurants and all major attractions. Robin was extremely helpful right from the initial inquiry to rent up until we left. Had everything we needed for our stay. Very clean and comfortable. Quiet side street location was a plus during a very busy time in Edinburgh."

  • A wonderful warm and inviting great Scotish residence for a large family or group with every amenity

    "Our time in Scotland was truly enhanced by our accommodations and knowing we were coming HOME to a great place after long days exploring. The closeness to transit down 3 blocks away, aswell as being a nice 20 min saunter up to Princes street, Waverly Train station and a few more minutes up to the Royal mile made our adventures more than easy. Or going on the Stockbridge area and meandering 20 mins to the wonderful Botanical Gardens! The creature comforts and extras supplied by the wonderful owners of the Upper Villa iced the cake - from having tea, coffee some spices, sugar, including having milk, bread, butter, cheese and basic sundry items for laundry were greatly appreciated. As well as the flowers in the entry way, the terrific information guides, and the openness to answer our questions or print off our boarding passes bring highest Kudos from this Canadian Family of 7. One suggestion might be the investment in a slow cooker so when out and about supper is done when the group returns. Being close to several small grocery shops as well as numerous specialty shops for cheeses, wines, the butcher and take out shops for fast food also lent itself to being a great area to stay in. Having the Drying rack in the Kitchen or as it was dubbed by our teens "the torture rack" worked fabulously to get clothes dried. The spaciousness to allow for the whole group to eat supper at the table or spread out when it was down time worked really well with the Old folks & teenagers. The ambiance of the upper villa, knowing it had years and years of history and the unique Scottish architecture truly lend to the adventure in Visiting Scotland... Thank you so much for giving us a great stay Rona!!! We will recommend you to all our friends and family and hope to return in a few years. Suellen & Victor Larsen , Jennifer & Scott Guitard and Boys."

  • How We Hated To Leave

    "We have travelled to many places and stayed in quite a number of VRBO rentals but none that can compare to this one. Debbie was there to great us and walk us through the apartment to explain where things were and how they worked. Everything you could want or need for your stay was included from slippers to scotch. Philip is so knowledgable of all the Scottish history and was more than willing to spend time talking with us. One thing they did for us was to recommend a driver for hire and Mike was fantastic. The building is located close enough to the city centre that you can be there in about 10 minutes by bus. This is a walkable area. We highy recommend this unit."

  • Comfortable & Good Location

    "My wife and I rented this unit in early June for a few nights. We quite liked the unit, knowing in advance there are some aspects, such as the bedroom being fairly tight, to be aware of and as such there were no surprises. For two adults it is comfortable and has everything you need for a short stay. Comfortable furnishings, TV and wifi, laundry washer and ample storage are all there. It is an old building but quaint, and very quiet. Not much in the way of a view but then you are not there to look out the windows too much. It's on a very nice street in the West end with cafes/pubs/coffee shops etc right at hand. It is an easy walk to the Royal Mile and all that entails. In short, it's a very good rental to have. We would definitely take it again."
