Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is perfect for a stay in Edinburgh. Really spacious, nicely decorated, clean, well equipped and a fantastic location. The apartment is bright & airy with a sensational outlook to the castle and over the meadows. It's a really pleasant walk into the city centre, and also has the coffee shops, brunch spots, restaurants and convenience stores of Bruntsfield and Marchmont just minutes away. The property owner was extremely accommodating with our check in and out requests and made the logistics really easy for us. We stayed with our 4 young children who loved the apartment and the location. Would highly recommend.

Gorgeous appartment!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is really spacious and comfortable. It has warm efficient central heating and we were never cold even in February! The beds are all good quality with good quality bedding. The kitchen is really well appointed and had everything I needed to bake three wedding cakes!

Caroline is really helpful and approachable.

We were a party of seven adults and there was plenty of room. My daughter got married from the apartment and on the wedding day we added a bride, 3 bridesmaids, 2 photographers and a make up artist and we still had plenty of room to move!

In a convenient area for shopping and sightseeing. You can walk to the Royal Mile in under half an hour. The views are spectacular and always changing with the weather and people in the park.

Highly recommended!

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.

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.
