Having a preference for self catering holidays since my children were young, I like to think I know what extra touches make a good holiday in to a great one and I hope that is what everyone will experience staying at my Apartment. I have lived in Edinburgh most of my life and really love the City and all the diversity that it has to offer and I hope you will enjoy it also.
The location is very central with many of the tourist sites with a short walk and therefore no need for a car not even for self catering as there is a large supermarket with ATM and Pharmacy open till 10pm every night beside the apartment.It also has a good bus service from the main road. Most of all it is a safe quiet area.
When you chose self catering I think it is important to be able to shop for food easily. This apartment has a supermarket just beside it. It is also well served by many buses from the main road to allow you to experience all of edinburgh and beyond from the zoo in the west to seaside in the east without the extra cost of having to hire a car. A car is not required due to the central location, however if you are coming by car there is a free dedicated off road parking space at the apartment, so no parking fees. Holyrood Palace and Park and the Royal Mile are only a 5 -7minute walk away.
“Wonderful stay in Edinburgh - highly recommend”
The apartment is conveniently located, walking distance to Royal Mile. Super market across the street - as kitchen was stocked with breakfast items we had no need. Very clean and spacious property. Carol our host was wonderful, very friendly and had folders with helpful information for the area.
Apartment has free wifi and is located in quiet area with parking stall.
We hope to visit Edinburgh again and would definitely stay here!

We stayed here for three nights whilst visiting family. Travelled with my Mum Dad and my two children (6, 2) and we had a great stay. Carol was very welcoming and had thought of everything to make the children feel at home. DVD's, toys, children's towels, games... My children felt very at home. The kitchen being stocked with essentials was a great help and the homebaking went down a treat.
We will definitely stay again. Thanks Caro

The apartment was ideally located......walking distance from Hollyrood Palace. Super market( Sainsbury) was just across the road. Nicely maintained property & was spacious for a family of four adults. The host Carol had equipped the apartment with all toiletarries & kitchen with cereals, milk, juice, bread, butter & jam.Carol was very friendly & had given tips for travel to & around Edinburgh. Located in quiet area & still close to Royal Mile. Will definitely stay at this place during our next visit.

I'm so glad we found this last minute apartment as we will be staying here again! Myself and my 5 month old baby boy went with my mum and dad who are in their 70's.
The apartment itself is spacious and clean. It has all you would need and more! It felt like a hotel having breakfast items already in the flat and all basic essentials you would need. Having a cot and high chair available meant a lot less to take in the car. Beds were comfortable and the cot had a proper mattress in it. Free dedicated car parking space and free wi fi.
Shops literally a 2 minute walk across the road were a godsend. Only a short bus ride into town centre and taxi only cost £6.
Carol is a lovely host and bent over backwards to accommodate us!
Only downside is no lift, which would be fine if you are fit and healthy. Did get a bit much for my parents but only going up them. There aren't many stairs and they are in 3 sets rather than one big staircase. We managed it with the baby and would stay again so cant have been too bad.
Portobello beach is a short car/bus journey away, around 15 minutes and the beach is beautiful! Sandy and clean with amusements and the normal sea side shops. Dog Frie
I was travelling with my mother and two kids (8 and 3yr old). It was my first visit to Scotland and i had too much of expectations from my trip. We were of varied age limits and peculiar eating habits. I contacted Carol, and we were at a nearby park waiting for her. She was a lovely host who arrived very much in time and took us to the apartment. It was just dream come true house.. more than that it felt us at home... . I was with kids and was not very sure what would i do to keep them occupied.. but Carol took care of our minutest requirements in terms of food essentials, laundary and other.
We had a house which was equipped with toys, and movies and chocolates and cereals... my kids didnt want to go out of the house .. it was such a pleasing place..
Most what made me write this review even after 3 years of my travel, is the warmth that Carol had .. while we were going back home.. we had a surprise .. she came to see us off with shortbreads, drinks and chocolates for my kids...
i truely thank Carol for making my Scotland trip memorable.
Carol greeted us as if we were friends she hadn't seen for a while, showed us around the apartment telling us about the local area and the quickest way to get onto the Royal Mile; which was quicker than SatNav! The apartment was spacious and very clean with great facilities. As you would with a friend some essentials were in the fridge along with a wee dram on the kitchen table.
If we're through again this will be first on our list to check for availability.
A great base to explore the City, with only a 20 minute walk to the Royal Mile. The apartment was lovely, and the owners very helpful, with everything we needed for the weekend provided, even breakfast cereals. As a group of three females the whole area felt very safe.
Although everywhere is walkable, the transport system is really good in the city centre. Buses and trams are very regular and the return airport bus worked well for us.
There are lots of places of interest to see and places to eat but can particularly recommend a visit to the Dome for afternoon tea and Mary Kings Close was very interesting.
Easy to follow directions from Carol , who met us on arrival. Everything clean and well kept. Carol had left us tea, milk sugar together with cereals , jams and croissants .
Easy access to bus services to city only 15 mins away. Everything was perfect for a relaxing stay. We hope to return later in the year .
Had a wonderful time at this lovely apartment. It was spotlessly clean, and Carol left some food and drink for us, so we didn't have to purchase these. There is a large Sainsbury's across the road, and a M and S Outlet. The location is nice, and also quiet, whilst being well served by several bus routes from the city centre. Carol did everything to ensure we had a great stay, and instead of having to find the keys somewhere, Carol met us at the time we wished to, and was very helpful. Further, she had sent us directions for how to get there, which were very easy to follow. Carol also supplied us with lots of information about attractions in Edinburgh, and how to get to these. In all honesty, I can not praise the property or the service highly enough. I would recommend this property to everyone.
You get used to being sent a code for a key safe to enter an apartment, so it was really nice to be greeted by Carol in person to show us around the apartment and with a welcome pack. She also gave us some very good tips of places to see and suggestions to eat. This personnel touch set us up very well for the weekend. The flats is well equipped and spacious and is in an ideal location to explore the city centre.
