This was a great place to stay with a group. We had 6 adults and 7 kids and had plenty of space. The kids had room to run around and loved playing hide and seek. John responded quickly to all our requests. The neighborhood had places to walk and eat. The only minuses were there were no towels and some of the furniture needed to be updated. Overall, a great place to stay with a group.

While amenities were basic the townhouse is located in a fantastic part of town near historic sights, restaurants, and shopping.

Beautiful place to stay in a wonderful location; close to the castle, shops, restaurants and grocers. John was very easy to communicate with and very accommodating.

Very central location, easy to walk to the main sights in Edinburgh. John was very flexible with our needs, and very understanding even when we arrived much later than anticipated. Beautiful location and very high ceilings, lovely flat!

The Townhouse is in an affluent part of town, beautiful kitchen and wonderful sized place. So it gives you the opportunity of feeling as if you are in your own apartment, the rooms are sound and elegantly done. Even though in city it is quite,easy access and lovely shops close by. John was amazing. He is such an intelligent,eloquent and tasteful host, with the ability to make everyone feel comfortable, He is very knowledgable in so many areas, and could answer any questions about the surrounding area. I would hope to get the chance to stay here again.

I am married with two children Charlie and Rosella and try to create sculptures when I have a free moment from letting out two houses and cleaning baby bottles.

Things that I have done that I am proud of: married a lovely girl and now mother, completed the London Marathon, managed to change a Christmas nappy without too much mess, and share an exhibition at Falmouth Art Gallery with Matisse and others in a group show about artists who have overcome adversities called Soaring Spirits.

Dreams: going back to Venice and Sicily.
