Guestbook comments from the owner
This note was left on the kitchen table for me:-

This apartment has been a wonderful place to stay. It welcomed us as did Edinburgh - both welcoming and comfortable. You have a beautiful country - I hope to visit again. If or when I do, you will hear from me. I wish you well. Thank you. Terry



I echo Terry's comments. Edinburgh was everything I hoped it would be - and having your apartment to call home made it just perfect (or should I say brilliant!) Thank you. Shirley

PERFECT HOME BASE IN EDINBURGH!

  • 5 of 5
Having read such glowing reviews, I expected this apartment could not possibly be as wonderful as described or as beautiful as it looks in the photos. I was wrong - it was even nicer than I expected! My family of four loved everything about the apartment. It is spacious, bright, and very comfortable - also very quiet, even when we had the windows open. We heard almost no noise from the street and no noise from neighboring flats. It was immaculate when we arrived and very well equipped.

The location was ideal - easy to walk all around central Edinburgh even for my 8-year-old (we did appreciate that it was a downhill walk from the center of town on the way home each evening!) It was an easy cab ride from the train station (fare was about 8.50, about a 5-minute ride) and to the airport (fare about 21 pounds and took about 20 minutes).

Di was very easy to work with and always quick to respond to our questions. She provided a helpful notebook of information about the flat as well as suggestions for restaurants, tours, and activities.

We were sorry to leave and if we are in Edinburgh again, we will not hesitate to stay at this flat once again!

WONDERFUL PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
Trip got off to a rough start when airline lost our luggage. But the owner Di was able to help get the bags delivered to her wonderful flat without interrupting our vacation.

The flat is spacious and located in a very nice part of Edinburgh. It's conveniently located to all the attractions yet in a quiet and upscale part of town. We enjoyed making many of our meals in the large well equipped kitchen.

Renters should be aware that the "dryer" listed on the VRBO site is actually a large dryer rack. Nevertheless, the rack worked extremely well and our clothes dried overnight with no problems.

One suggestion for international travelers is to have their phones setup for service in the UK as there is not a phone in the flat. Phone service would have simplified the delivery of our lost luggage without having to involve the owner. Thankfully, Di was quick to respond to our emails and contacted the airline on our behalf. Thanks Di.

LOVELY NEW TOWN FLAT

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week at this flat in Edinburgh. We appreciated the beauty of the apartment, the furnishings supplied and the convenient location. It was great to have the coffee French Press and well-equipped kitchen as well as the laundry and Wi-Fi. The buses on Dundas and Howe were very useful, but we enjoyed walking too. We had great food, especially dinners at Urban Angel and Earthy’s and the Thai restaurant on Howe and hooray for the gluten-free treats at Archipelago Bakery.

We had a rental car for two days and ended up parking it at the large 24 hr lot below the castle.

If you have need of a second set of keys, just ask. We did so after the fact and it would have been nice for our two couple group.

Thank you for sharing your flat and for honestly describing it. Everything met or exceeded our expectations.

FANTASTIC

  • 5 of 5
This property was fantastic. It was very clean and well maintained. The location was perfect. There was no need for a car. The owner provided books with local attractions, maps and local restaurants. It was a very comfortable and quite place to stay. Our favorite place to eat was Leo's. We are looking at coming back next year and we will be staying here. Thank you so much!

LOVELY, SPACIOUS FLAT- WONDERFUL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in Edinburgh! This flat located on the first floor provided the perfect resting place after a busy day of sightseeing. It's location is close to pubs, restaurants, and grocery stores. It was a short walk to the heart of New Town Edinburgh. For anyone with difficulties walking, the Edinburgh bus system is easy to use with a stop a block away.

Everything for a family of four to make our stay comfortable was available in the flat. There was lots of information on attractions to see and restaurant recommendations. We would love to return and stay again in the future.

FANTASTIC FLAT IN THE HEART OF EDINBURGH

  • 5 of 5
This was our first experience using VRBO and we were thrilled with the experience. The flat was every thing and more than we expected. The flat was spacious with plenty of room for the three of us. It was clean and nicely decorated.
The location was great. It is in a residential area so nice and quiet. We walked everywhere….. to the castle, St. Giles Church, the Royal Mile and Arthurs Seat. No need for a car. There are lots of great restaurants and pubs nearby. There is also a nearby grocery store which we used for breakfast foods, drinks and snacks.
What a great vacation and we would look forward to staying in Di's flat again.
