“Perfect central location for sightseeing”

Centrally located in New Town, this flat is nicely decorated and has everything you'll need for self catering. Patrick (charming owner who also grew up in the flat) was absolutely brilliant and responded immediately to any enquiries we had prior to booking the flat. His son met us the day of our arrival & gave us great suggestions for grocery shopping, sights & restaurants. Could not have been happier with our choice! The flat was more than enough room for our family of 4, including 2 teenagers. Fantastic value & would stay again on our next holiday to Edinburgh.

Centrally located in historic New Town, this flat is nicely decorated and has everything you'll need for self catering. Patrick was a gracious host who took the time to tell us about the history of the property and orient us to the neighborhood. It's an easy walk to either downtown or Stockbridge for shopping, dining, and sightseeing. Very good value.

An awesome apartment in a fantastic location, with everything you could need including a very welcome bottle of bubbly. The owner was incredibly helpful, getting information for us right at the last minute. Clean, tidy, comfortable... A complete home away from home.

Our family had a lovely three night stay at this cosy apartment. The flat is equipped with everything you need for a short stay. The flat was really easy to find in a quiet district. Not far to walk to main attractions. As we were staying with small children the location was great as it was well serviced with buses direct to Royal Mile, Scottish Museum and Leith. Only a short walk to Stocksbridge. We hope we can return again soon.

Patrick provided clear instructions for key pick-up and other information on the apartment, including historical tidbits. We were quite close to food markets and were able to cook our own meals. Quite close to both Princes Street and the Royal Mile, if you like to walk - it was about a mile or so to the Castle.
