EXCELLENT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
This is a super location on a corner in the historic New Town. It is located a five minute walk to Princes Street and trendy Broughton Street. Since this is a self catering vacation the proximity of traditional butchers, bakers and fishmongers is excellent. The bed is very comfy and the living room cozy. For me it was a superb home away from home. The shower is a bit quirky but once you get the hang of it, it works fine. I'll be staying here again.

PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5
I found my new home away from home! Francois was great and so helpful and responsive to any questions I had right from the very beginning. The flat is perfect for two, and the fireplace really added to the ambiance! Everything was spotless. I stayed for almost three weeks and when it came time to leave, I didn't want to! The wall of windows let the light in perfectly! The private gardens are a respite from the everyday, and everything was walking distance. Margiotta's and Sainsbury's Local down the street made it easy to shop and the Starbucks three blocks up made me feel at home in my routine. Thank you Francois for everything! I will be back!

PERFECT PLACE FOR A WEEKEND FOR 2

Very good location, cosy apartment, we really enjoyed. The water was a little bit cold, the rest was perfect.

PHOTOS DECEPTIVE

  • 2 of 5
This flat was a disappointment in that although conveniently located for the city centre it is much smaller than it appears in the photos. A collapsible wardrobe takes up most of the far wall and there is otherwise very little storage space. Nowhere for suitcases. A major problem though with our almost 5-week stay was a lack of hot water. The water heater broke down by our third day and was not fixed until our last week. Lukewarm water only. We did negotiate a reduction in rent but in our opinion the hot water situation should have been fixed within a few days. We have stayed in another of this renter's accommodations with complete satisfaction, so this was a big letdown.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION.

I paid for location and that's what I got. It was clean, layout was fine. I requested some items for the kitchen and living area and did not get a response until 3 days later, by which time I purchased and left the items for the next tenant. Could use some blinds or net curtains. Customer service did give me 2 free cleans.

Owner's Response: I did pick up these items and was meaning to contact you to found out when it would be convenient to drop them by. Unfortunately the start of August is by far my busiest time of year and I did not get round to it. I would agree that some net curtains or blinds would be beneficial and I have advised the owner to install one of these. Otherwise I am glad you enjoyed the location of it, although I am a little confused by the 2 star rating.
