Fabulous location in the heart of Edinburgh! Close to everything in Old town and a quick walk to the train/new town. Anna was super attentive and helped with any questions we had prior to arriving!

We loved that we were close to everything. This was our home base and we used the rail just about everyday. Which was just a 5 minute walk. There is never enough time on a vacation to see it all. Amanda & Anna were great and very helpful.

This lovely apartment is literally five minutes away from everything you'd want to see in Edinburgh. The Royal Mile is right out your door. You're five minutes from the castle, museums and the train station. The view of St Giles cathedral is wonderful. It can get a little noisy because of all the people on the Royal Mile. But the bedrooms are quiet and the chance to watch the people walking by is worth it. Anna gave us clear directions on how to access the apartment. It was beautifully furnished and clean. A great experience.

Stunning apartment in Edinburgh old town city centre. Couldn't ask for a more central location. We absolutely loved our stay, the apartment was beautiful and the location couldn't have been better. The view from the living room windows are breath taking. The apartment was clean, modern and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Thank you for the great memories!

An amazing location right off the hip part of High Street. Bedrooms are in the back, and so you avoid street noise at night. I can't think of a better-situated flat. Wifi was flaky and slow at times; hot water ran out every evening (such that I had to boil water myself to shower), though it's hard to tell whether the repairs on the street immediately outside warranted perhaps turning off a hot water supply or some such. The flat has a high-grade finish, with a good kitchen and two clean bathrooms. Getting in and out is super-easy. Amanda responds quickly and is a great hostess. Checking in and out were both straightforward. In future visits to Edinburgh, we'll definitely prioritise reserving this flat again. An amazing location and view; couldn't ask for better.
