  • We thoroughly enjoyed our three day stay in Edinburgh. The apt. was spotlessly clean and perfectly located in a quiet but very convenient part of the city. Anne was the perfect host, we were surprised more than once with little extras that she thought of to make one's stay as enjoyable as possible.

  • No tenemos palabras para agradecerle a Anne. El departamento es PERFECTO, super cálido, limpio, completísimo, bien ubicado. Anne se comunicó todo el tiempo con nosotros, nos estaba esperando en el departamento, ella es súper amable. Nos dió todas las indicaciones necesarias.
    Nos brindó todo lo necesario, el departamento contaba con todo tipo de cosas incluyendo comida (comestibles), cookies, un desayuno increíble con muffings caseros, bebidas, información de la ciudad, paraguas, capas para lluvia, y todo lo necesario para que nuestra estadía fuera PERFECTA. Nos sentimos como en casa. Muchísimas gracias, Anne. Recomendamos 100% a esta anfitriona.

  • Our stay at the Apartment in historic old town was absolutely wonderful. First of all, communication with Anne was simply flawless, and she was waiting for us when we arrived. The apartment itself is simple but clean and comfortable. It was everything that we needed to feel at home. The kitchen is fully equipped, the living room was cozy with a nice TV, the bathroom had a hot shower that came in handy after a whole day of sightseeing, and the bedroom had a very comfortable bed. The location itself was great. Right at the bottom of the Royal Mile and immediately across from the Palace of Holyrood. 15 min away from the train station and the airport bus as well as many great shops, restaurants and tea rooms. We would stay at Anne's place again in a heartbeat.

  • Anne is such a fantastic gracious host we sent my brother over from America just to stay with her. He had a wonderful time at Anne's flat and it was a perfect introduction to Scotland to kick off his 3 week backpacking trip.

  • This was a fabulous place to stay in the heart of old Edinburgh. The apartment was lovely, ultra clean and equipped beyond our expectations. Anne was a perfect host and readily available even though she does not live on the premises. The location could not be better, across the street from Holyrood palace where the royals stay when they are in town and walking distance to all the other historic places in the old town.

  • What a wonderful stay! The apartment was lovely and the location was superb! Anne was so accommodating and left us wonderful goodies which were much appreciated after a crazy day of traveling. The apartment was well furnished and had everything we needed for a great stay. Anne's suggestions on things to do were spot on! Best stay ever!

  • We loved the convenience and spotlessness of this flat. Anne left us with a wide selection of food to enjoy during our stay and made special arrangements to allow us to stay an extra day. She is a great host.

  • Anne was a fantastic hostess! She met me as I walked down to the flat from the train at Edinburgh-Waverley (about a mile's walk) and helped me lug my rolling duffel up the stairs into the apartment.

    Even better was Anne having left little snacks and some basic food stuffs (milk, eggs, cheese, coffee [sweet, blessed coffee], sugar, etc.). A small book with maps was on the coffee table to peruse, and the location just cannot be beat!

    You quite literally walk out and see Hollyrood as you're at the "bottom" of the Royal Mile. Everything you could possibly want is nearby, and there are some great views from the cemetery just on the other side of the road.

After a long career in teaching, I am now happily retired. I enjoy traveling and have recently gone back to cycling (on an electric bike -there are a lot of hills in this city;-) I love Edinburgh and would be delighted to welcome you to this beautiful city.
