Sharon's place was as expected based on the pictures. I misread some of the information in her listing which increased the price for the place, but she was accommodating and flexible. The flat itself is very nice, but unique. The stairwell into the place was very dimly lit and ha…

We loved staying at Sharon's historic flat with an ocean view! As always we pack in back packs instead of our luggage when we have to travel up several flights of stairs, & she's on the top floor which is great exercise! Easy parking and access to public transport. We walked to t…

Sorry about that Diane! all the keys, including my own, are a wee bit sticky in the door, there is a bit of a knack to getting in! I am glad you were able to work them ok after arrival.

We had a great time staying at Sharon's place! Her apartment was very clean and spacious and the location was great! Close to buses and the very charming neighborhood of leith just a short walk away. I would surely recommend her flat to couples traveling.

Amazing apartment, very cosy! The only issue was there was no lift up to the apartment, so we had to climb the stairs. The neighbourhood is great - while it is not very near the city centre, it is still near other sights and attractions in Leith, as well as some great restaurants…
