  • Thanks to Jo-Ann for the kind, helpful communication before arrriving. Same for the communication while our staying. Although she wasn´t in town, there were no difficulties of getting in touch with her (i.e. questions) via e-mail or phone. Everything worked quite well.
    The flat itself was clean and fully equiped, even a little bit more like this: There was huge range of food and things around that it seemed like someone gave way because of our booking...
    However, we liked it, had a great time in Edinbugh and can reccommend to stay there.

  • We had a really nice time in Edinburgh! Joanna is very friendly and quick in responding to messages, the flat is lovely and clean, and there were a lot of practical things present, like tea, herbs, maps, information folders and a travel plug.
    The flat is located in Leith, not to far from the city center (and close to lots of buses that go in that direction anyway), and we made a few evening walks through the harbor area. Would definitely recommend.

  • Vacanza magnifica.
    Joanna è una persona meravigliosa...il suo appartamento è in ottima posizione, il Leith è un quartiere spettacolare tutto da scoprire collegato benissimo. Lo consiglio!

  • Joanna was very accommodating for our stay in Edinburgh. The apartment was very clean and in a quiet street in Leith. We would stay again, thanks Joanna.

  • I really had a very good stay in Edinburgh.
    Joanna is a perfect host looking for really everything you need,with a lot of small attentions.
    The flat which is situated in the popular district of Leith, is very well equipped and functional. Lots of buses (even at night) are accessible nearby.
    A very good place to stay in Edinburgh !
    And thanks for everything to Joanna for her kind and warming welcome, she's a very nice person!

  • We had a wonderful week in Edinburgh! Joanna and her daughter met us at the flat exactly on schedule, having cleaned meticulously and prepared some welcoming treats for us. She gave us a thorough tour and made sure we understood how to use the appliances before she headed out on her own Airbnb trip. She also checked in during the week to see how we were doing, and provided us with a feedback sheet.
    The flat itself was what we expected, and a good bargain for the money. It was a bit cramped for three people, but would probably be comfy for two. The street outside was noisy at times, but not a problem when the windows were closed. The streetlight shone directly in the window; we have suggested blackout curtains to make for a better night's sleep.
    Joanna is a new host and eager to improve the experience, so we hope future guests will provide feedback as well.

  • Joanna's apartment is nice and convenient, and fully furnished and equipped with anything you might think of. It was very clean and well appointed with lots of little extras such as quality toiletries, cereal, jams, tea and other kitchen goodies. Joanna prepared even a hot-water bottle, I felt like at home! There is also a huge space for your clothes. Very comfortable bed. Heating and hot water worked perfectly. The surroundings of the house are rather calm. As mentioned in the ad, the apartment is a bit out of town, in an area that is a little less charming than downtown, but it's situated near by a bus stop with plenty of buses that run straight to the centre of town (exept on Sundays, watch out!). Plus there was a Tesco just around the corner so it was easy to get hold of food etc.
    The entrance hall and stairs of the building are a bit grotty and smelly but this wasn't a major issue for us, and the apartement itself wasn't concerned.
    The owner, Joanna, was very helpful and responsive, the booking went smoothly. Joanna was also very accommodating and flexible around our schedule, she even picked us up at the Airlink station in the centre, although it was nearly midnight! So nice! She also allowed us to leave a bit later than planned.
    So, thank you for everything Joanna, we really enjoyed our stay in this appartement! Thumbs up!
