I am a language teacher from Edinburgh, Scotland and enjoy travelling and weekends away with my boyfriend.
The reservation was canceled 18 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Vicky's flat is lovely. It is located only 15-20 minutes walking distance from the town center (princess street), plus there is a bus stop right in front of the house.
The flat is spacious and warm, the bed was comfortable and the shower was hot.
I met Vicky briefly and she was very friendly and hospitable, explaining me what is important to know about the flat and the area. I enjoyed my stay and can recommend her appartment without hesitation! Thank you very much!!!!
Vicky was very sweet and it was great to hear about her travels and knowledge on the area. The place was in a good location and as a teen I felt very safe. She even put these hot water things in the bed when we arrived at night which was so nice! Highly recommend it
A warm welcoming host,a warm, clean quiet and comfortable apartment, easy walking distance to the city centre, a safe location,good wifi access,
-everything the frequent abnb user requires!
I did not get to meet Vicky as she was away, but she left the keys with her neighbour and everything ready in the house. By message she seemed very helpful and called me to make sure I managed to get into the flat. The house was a bit small but clean and nice, in a very good location about 10 minutes from Princes Street, so it was very easy to get to the centre (or to Ocean Terminal if one is interested). The local area does not offer much, we were not able to get any food for Sunday's lunch so we had to go to the centre. I would recommend it.
It was a short but really nice stay in Edinburgh. Thanks to Vicky for the advices and the warm welcoming. And because we felt like home I think we'll be back (if Vicky is ok!).
Staying with Vicky was absolutely fantastic! She was an extremely accommodating host giving access to her kitchen and other facilities. It was also so lovely to come home from a long day out in the cold, to find Vicky had warmed up a hot water bottle and put it in my bed! The location of the apartment is absolutely fine, with a short bus into town right around the corner and running very regularly! Highly recommend staying here. Thanks Vicky.
We only stood for one night. It was really nice at Vicky´s place. It is pretty close to the harbour. Everthing was clean and we had fresh flowers in the rooms. We also got towels which I didn´t expect.
Vicky is a great host. She gave us restaurant recommendations and helped us to get a reservation.
We spent a very good night in the vick's bedroom. It was clean and comfortable.
We stayed at the flat from Monday to Thursday very recently. We found Vicky to be very knowledgeable and proud of her city so we were more than happy to follow her suggestions for restaurants to eat in and places to go.
She was very friendly and welcoming and if/when we return to Edinburgh we will certainly be booking with her again.
The flat is an easy bus ride from the centre of town and it was nicer being away from the hordes of tourists.
Great couple to host; Vicky and Michael were a pleasure to be with. Good to be able to share hosting experiences (Vicky has much more experience than I do) and thank you for your positive feedback.
Vicky and Micheal were lovely to host ... they immersed themselves in Liverpool and I think thoroughly enjoyed themselves .. exactly what Air B n B is all about !!
all went well, nice guests, you are always wellcome back at the Lake
It was great to host Vicky & Michael for Easter weekend. Just like having old friends stay over. Got on very well and hope they come back soon .
Not to mention that 2 crystal are more expensive than the price you paid darling ;)
Response from Vicky:
please don't take our feedback personally - if we were reviewing you and your partner it would be a different kettle of fish :) Do come and visit me in Scotland sometime!
Though I didn't have the opportunity to see them a lot, Vicky and her friend were absolutely very friendly and nice guests. Relaxed and independent. They left the place tidy, always welcome again!
Vicky is the most easy to talk to, friendly and honest person I know! She is well travelled herself, loves welcoming travellers into her home, and she's also very proud of her home city of Edinburgh.
