A perfectly located and well equipped flat in the heart of the Old Town. For our stay of four nights as a couple it couldn't have been better. A short walk from Waverly station and you are right in the heart of things. Lots of nice little cafes and restaurants nearby as are the main tourist sites.
The flat itself is a nice size, clean and equipped with all you could need. Well appointed kitchen with some basic foodstuffs thoughtfully supplied - even milk in the fridge. Cut flowers in each room was a nice touch. Enormous telly and sky tv could be a lifesaver if the weather really got nasty.
Christine was a great host giving us a warm welcome and lots of information on arrival.
We stayed here for 3 nights and loved it. Christine kindly had the flat ready early for us plus had tea, coffee, biscuits, cereals and milk all prepared; after a long flight there is nothing better than to be able to sit down with a cup of tea and Scottish shortbread! Christine had a map with major sights marked, as well as brochures. The flat was as it is in the pictures- clean, warm, and homely. It was in an amazing location! Walking distance to all the sights, pubs, gardens and the airlink bus. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.
Christine was awesome! She met us at the flat, gave us great tips for our stay and was the nicest, friendliest host we had on our european trip! Do not hesitate to stay at her flat:)
Christine is a perfect host, kind, very approachable and flexible - and she lives just above. The location is unbeatable, you literally just off the Royal Mile. The flat is quite spacious and very well equipped, there is a lot of food left for the guests (cereals, coffee, milk, condiments).
The location was amazing and the place was just perfect! Very clean and the place was just amazingly homely! Couldn't of been happier with out stay!
Such a perfect place to stay for a couple of nights in Edinburgh - the flat is very spacious and is so central. Christine was a fantastic host and was extremely welcoming when we arrived. She provided food for breakfast, chocolates, and a variety of tea and coffee. Because we arrived by plane, it was ideal that we didn't have to bring shampoo, towels and a hair dryer - all the little things make a difference :-) The flat was also extremely clean and the bed was very comfortable. We would love to come back!
Christine's place is awesome!! One of the best airbnb experience I have ever had. It is so warm, cozy, and tastefully decorated. Every detail, including body cream, hair spray... (beyond your imagination:)) is prepared. A lot of cute decorations make you feel as if you are at home. The TV is huge! And there are some DVD selections such as the Lord of the Ring. The rooms are exactly like the picture and even better. The apartment is at the central location where you are close to everything/transportation. Only 5 mins walk from St.Giles and 10 mins walk to the castle. Of all the good things I can say about Christine's place, the most important one is that she is such a nice and welcoming host:). We will definitely choose to stay with her again shall we visit Edinburgh in the future! (**This is a walk-up apartment so be prepared if you have heavy suitcases!)
Had a great time staying in Christine's apartment for the weekend. Christine was really friendly and welcoming, and the apartment is in a brilliant location. Only a few minutes walk to Waverley station and the Royal Mile.
The apartment is clean and comfortable & has everything you might need. Christine was also very flexible with check-in and check-out times, and when we could collect our bags.
Thanks for having us Christine!
Listing is very accurate. Beautiful place!
Felt very welcome as she greeted me at the door, gave me a tour and showed me how everything worked, provided Scottish Biscuits (my favorite - sooo good!).
Place was clean and comfortable, everything works, bed was so comfortable I didn't want to leave it. Had extra blankets, etc. Kitchen was wonderful!
Location is great, between Princes Street and Royal Mile - I'm short so a slower walker: a 2-5 minute walk to both areas as this is between them, shuttle for airport is less than 5 minute walk (cheap, takes about 30 minutes to get to the airport, has wifi), and less than 5 minutes to the Waverly train station so easy access to St Andrews, London, anywhere else you would want to go by train.
Everything was within walking distance for me and I can't wait to go visit again! Oh, and the wifi was fast and worked well.
Will definitely stay here again.
The flat was in an excellent location and Christine could not have been more helpful in the run-up to our trip and was so accommodating, both on our arrival and on our departure.
I would not hesitate to recommend this property. The rooms were lovely and we were both saying throughout the weekend how good it was to have a nice flat to come back to, either to relax or get ready for the next thing on the list of (many) things to do in Edinburgh.
Thank you Christine for making our stay so comfortable and being so helpful in the run up and during our visit to Edinburgh.
All I can say a perfect guests any host could wish for!
Having been a friend of Christine's for more than six years, I know her to be one of the warmest, kindest and most inviting people you could hope to meet. A selfless mother and attentive partner who's always lots of fun — and a great cook to boot!
