We had a great stay in this spacious accomodation, lots of room for 8 adults. Modernly updated while still maintaining lots of the old character. Good restaurants, bars and shopping in the area and the city centre is a pleasant 15 minute walk away. Would definately recommend this location.

Charming

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed calling the Upper Villa "our home" during our visit to Edinburgh, it is spacious, charming and full of character. Nicely, and thoughtfully stocked with basic supplies. Stockbridge is a lovely neighborhood, full of shops,pubs and friendly inhabitants. While I am not convinced that there are many "easy" walks in Edinburgh, you can walk to Princes Street, Dean Village, the Royal Mile from here, we did it several times. Your leg muscles will scream at you, but it is so worth it. I hope to visit again and would not hesitate to rent this home again. Thank you Rona, sorry we did not get to meet, perhaps one day.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind comments Brenda - it really makes it worth while for us to keep letting out the Upper Villa. Look forward to actually meeting you when you come to Edinburgh again!

Lovely home in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

Our party of nine aged 3 to 62 years enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. The local pubs were great for a good hearty meal after a long day sightseeing. You can walk to Edinburgh Castle in about 30 minutes. Great location would definately recommend this home to other travellers.

Brilliant

  • 5 of 5

A lovely place to stay we were a party of eight adults, one child and two babies in Edinburgh for a family wedding. The Upper Villa was perfect, so homely, spacious, clean and very well equipped.. The owner was very helpful and provided for all needs. Brilliant place in a great location would definitely recommend and would book again without question if we needed a large property to rent in Edinburgh.

amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Recently visited this amazing house for a hen weekend and could not be more impressed with everything it had to offer.

The owners were brilliant and left lots of information on where to go and how to access everything, the location of the apartment was perfect. It is less than a 5 minute walk into the lovely Stockbridge which has your local supermarket and also restaurants and some take away’s, along with some pubs. It’s also only 15 minutes into the centre of Edinburgh which is a beautiful scenic route!

The apartment has everything you could possibly need for large groups and families and meant that we were able to lighten our suitcases as everything was already there for us! The size of the rooms and the two bathroom is a god send when you have a large group and there is enough living space to not get in each others way.

Will definitely be booking this place again and visiting Edinburgh very soon!

Thank you very much for letting us spend the weekend here!

Great location!

We have really enjoyed our stay at the upper villa! A lot of space for two grown ups and 6 teenagers, and a beautiful house. This was our first stay in Edinburgh, but not our last. Thank you!
