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.
Why Carol chose Edinburgh
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.
What makes this Apartment unique
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.

Terrific Edinburgh flat.
Fantastic apartment. Thank you Carol. We loved the convenient location, both for the shopping park right across and the quick ride to the Royal Mile. Accommodations and amenities were wonderful. My only advice is that the bedrooms may need new mattresses soon.
Thank you for your review , I am glad you found the apartment fantastic. All the mattresses are orthopaedic as that is best for back health but they can be a bit firm for some people which is why I put thick toppers on top so that people can make the choice. The double bed is a new bed recently so new in fact that I haven’t changed the advert picture yet and the twin beds are two years old. It’s a difficult one as it is personal taste really.
Great apartment in a perfect location!
Carol's apartment is great and she is a fantastic host! She was there to greet us after an all night flight and was very flexible re: our arrival time. We stayed for 3 nights on arrival and also for our last night before heading home. We've stayed in many VRBO's and this was definitely on the top of the list. Carol provides everything you need including breakfast foods, coffee and tea. It is next door to a small shopping center with a supermarket and a bank which was very helpful. It's about a 10 minute walk to the beginning of the Royal Mile but far enough away that it's very quiet at night. We will definitely stay there again when we return to Edinburgh!
Janet and David - stayed in September, 2018
Thank you Janet and david for you kind words. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and welcome back anytime,best wishes , carol
Carol met us on arrival and showed us all the details of the apartment. It is very well equipped; we really appreciated the breakfast supplies and other items for our personal comfort! The location was quite convenient, and Sainsburys was a two minute walk away. Thank you Carol!
You are very welcome, I am glad you had a good stay and hopefully see you another time.
Excellent stay - lovely apartment & host
The apartment was ideal for walking to Holyrood Palace, the Royal mile , Arthur's seat and the Fringe Festival for us. It is close to Sainsburys and KFC. You have a view of Arthur's seat from the bedrooms it is lovely and quiet. Carol met us there and showed us around the flat. Added little touches of a wee dram, milk, tea, coffee, sugar, jam, butter , bread, and cereals were all very much appreciated. Towels and face cloths supplied, shampoo and conditioner, bedding, dvd's TV, hairdryer and of course WI-FI - overall we had a brilliant stay and would highly recommend this flat. It takes about 25 - 30mins walking to Cowgate in Edinburgh city centre - Would stay again.
Comfortable, Clean, and Convenient
This place was perfect for us. Within walking distance to some of the sights on the Royal Mile, and very convenient to the Hop on Hop Off buses as well. Carol was very accommodating to our schedule and even personalized her home for us! We will definitely stay again when we next come back to Edinburgh!
Thank you for your kind words. Would be delighted to have you back anytime.
