Wonderful Location - Great for Groups

  • 5 of 5
7 of us had a very comfortable stay in this gorgeous apartment! The view was great from the living area -a pretty park and the castle in the distance. Location was close to a market and to bus stops and with a healthy walk to the castle (about a mile). It was very well stocked with linens and kitchen necessities. Caroline was simply fabulous to work with and very responsive to anything we needed. Highly recommended!

Excellent first impression of Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5
First I would like to thank Caroline for letting us stay in her beautiful apartment. She was a great host that coordinated a taxi to pick us up from the airport and called us upon our arrival to the apartment to make sure everything we didn’t need anything else. We were also greeted to a welcome basket of tea, wine, and shortbread. The apartment was beyond our expectations. It was a beautiful 4 bedroom flat with a living room, kitchen, and two bathrooms. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you would need to cook a meal. The apartment is situated next to 2 very large parks and an easy walking distance (about a mile) to the Royal Mile and Princes Street. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Edinburgh and liked the option of being able to cook our own meals. If I ever get the option to return to Edinburgh I would definitely be a renting out this apartment again. Thank you for making our stay very enjoyable and helping me create memories to last a lifetime.

Check-out nightmare

  • 1 of 5
The good:
Perfect location
Spacious apartment

The bad: Cold water in 1 bath, which meant we were 6 persons for 1 bathroom each morning.
1 toilet was leaking.

In general, it was close to impossible to get in contact with landlord.

We paid the full amount as bank transfer 8 weeks before we arrived. After this transfer, we asked landlord to confirm transfer. Radio silence for more than 7 weeks. No answer on email, SMS or telephone. We got in contact with landlord 2 days before we arrived, after many many attempts. Landlord promised us an email stating details about keys , checkout etc on the day before we arrived. We did not get that email. On this stage we were in the process of booking a hotel, as we had no trust in receiving keys. But to our big surprise, keys were there when we arrived in Edinburgh on 18 June 2013.

Then we had 5 wonderful days in Edinburgh, that must be admitted.

We SMS´ed landlord on departure day, early in the morning, that we would leave 16 oclock. No reaction on answer to this SMS. On 12 oclock we were thrown out of apartment with 15 min notice. Quite a nightmare, with children and elderly people close to 80 y.o. We asked if we could pay for letting the suitcases stay in 1 of the many rooms till 14 olock. Not possible, and we were aggresively kicked out of apartment. With the health riscs involved in treating elderly people people close to 80 y.o. this way, we will diplomatic label this as quite bad and dangerous behavior by a landlord.

Owner's Response: We are very frustrated and disappointed with this review (the first negative review we have had in over 5 years of letting). We strongly believe it to be unjust and erroneous.
•Regarding access the guests were advised verbally that, as they were arriving late, the keys would be left at a nearby hotel - the guest confirmed he had googled the hotel and knew where to go to pick the keys up as is borne out by the fact that he gained access to the apartment as planned.
•At no point were we notified of any problems in the apartment during the guests stay. Following their comments after departure, although there was no visible leak, our plumber resealed one of the toilets in case there was a sporadic leak due to movement. Both showers were working!
•Prior to departure the guests lodged a very positive review on Trip Advisor giving the apartment 4 stars which was subsequently withdrawn following checkout
Review #6295388 "Fabulous location and apartment "

Location Cant be better. Park is fabulous, quiet , very few People, public golf , we loved the cafe pavilion in the park, cosy with tarot Reading , crystal shop, 5 min walk from apartment. Restaurant apartment and levens thai fusion restaurant , Were also 5 min walk from apartment , and some of the best food we have had. We had cosy family time in kitchen and living room, and amazing view to park from living room

•The principal problem would seem to have been the situation which arose on departure.The first indication of any desire for a later departure was by a text message sent 90 minutes prior to the scheduled departure time of 10.30am. Our website, the booking website entry and our Booking Form all clearly state a departure time of 10.30am unless by prior arrangement. Guests were politely reminded by return text of the agreed checkout time of 10.30am and of next guests arrival at 2pm – text sent verified by Orange that it was sent to the correct number despite the guest maintaining that they did not receive it. We have offered to provide copy telephone account verified by Orange.
•The guests didn't leave until 12.30! Despite the inconvenience caused by their actions at no point were they ‘aggressively thrown out of the apartment’. They were treated in a respectful and polite manner throughout.

We are very sorry if these guests feel badly treated in any way, however we know they were dealt with in a polite, non confrontational way and we do not believe we could have acted any differently.

The historic city of Edinburgh provides visitors with the opportunity to experience a wealth of cultural attractions from the many art galleries within the city to the impressive choice of theatres and restaurants each giving its own unique experience to the visitor and allowing them to be part of the excitement and buzz of a night out in Scotland’s capital city. With its stunning Georgian and Victorian architecture, and winding medieval streets, it’s easy to see why Edinburgh has been listed as a World Heritage Site. The Royal Commonwealth Swimming Pool and the famous Arthur’s Seat (the Queens Parkland adjacent to Holyrood Palace), are within a short walk. Regular bus links on Bruntsfield Place and Melville Drive provide easy access to other areas of Edinburgh slightly further afield, and are again only minutes from the apartment. Bruntsfield Links, immediately opposite the apartment, is an open park area with pitch and putt course, tennis courts and play parks.
