Everything you could possibly want!
We (2 grandparents, 2 parents, and 2 children) stayed in this amazing apartment from Sept. 30-Oct. 4, and could not have been happier with every single aspect of our stay. To wit:
1) The apartment itself is gorgeous. It has been furnished to a very high standard, and the beds, sofas, etc., are not only extremely comfortable, but aesthetically lovely, too. The kitchen is spacious and equipped with every bit of flatware, servingware, etc., that you could want. The equipment is very new and easy to operate, and the view from the kitchen windows looks out on the Old Town and the Castle.
2) In addition to the furnishings, there are so many lovely touches everywhere! There was tea and sugar in the cabinet when we arrived, as well as a bottle of wine (we left some extra tea when we left as well), dozens of books on the shelves (including travel guides, mysteries, local history, etc.), hangers in the closet, and luxe towels for all of us. The wifi was also super-fast and reliable.
3) The location is perfect. We were just a short hop away from the Scottish National Gallery, and the pedestrian bridge over to the Old Town, and yet we were right in the midst of all of the conveniences of the New Town. There are many great restaurants a five-minute walk away, plus the M&S food hall and a decently-sized Sainsbury. The St. James Centre (a mall) is a 10 minute walk, and the train station is 5-10 minutes on foot as well. In addition to its obvious advantages, the central location also meant that we could pop back "home" for a cup of tea whenever we liked during the day when the cold and damp were too much for us!
4) The owners/operators were lovely. They were obviously very concerned that we should have a nice time, and went out of their way to help us get situated in the flat, as well as get everything in order for our departure.
I realize that this review is quite effusive in its praise, but, even so, I'm probably forgetting some things that made this place so special. We have stayed in VRBO properties all over the world, and this is by far one of the nicest.

Owner's Response: We were so pleased that the apartment proved to be suitable for all of the family. It sounds like you made the most of your time in the city and we hope we can welcome you back one day should you be coming north again. Many thanks again for taking the time to write such kind words. Best regards Susan
