Luxury Apartment with Wonderful Castle View
New Town Edinburgh

Would recommend

  • 5 of 5
We had a great Bank Holiday weekend in this apartment. It is as central as can be, just a short walk from the main station and with a supermarket just around the corner and a taxi rank opposite. The flat itself was welcoming and spacious with a very well equipped kitchen. The owner and agent were very professional and the booking process etc smooth. I would return here next time I am in Edinburgh, and would recommend it.

a wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5
Susan's apartment was our first stop on our trip through Scotland and it was an absolutely wonderful beginning. The apartment is exactly as advertised....centrally located, extremely clean and comfortable. We were two couples traveling together and it was very spacious and perfectly met our needs. Susan's custodian for the apartment lived one floor below us. He met us when we arrived and pointed out all of the amenities. While we did not need to call upon him for any "emergencies" it was very comforting to know that someone was so readily available to meet our needs. I would not hesitate to rent this apartment again.

Great flat, terrific location

  • 5 of 5
The "luxury" description is accurate. In many rentals the furnishings are old or IKEA. Not here. Of the dozen or so places I have rented via VRBO this was by far the nicest and most complete. It was also surprisingly spacious. The owner is very friendly and helpful with things not related to the apartment, such as finding a golf course or place for dinner.

Perfect location in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed for 3 nights and everything was as advertised. The apartment was very clean, spacious and in a perfect location. Virtually everything we wanted to do was within walking distance....great restaurants and pubs, Starbucks (a must!), the castle, shopping and the train station. We also took day trips (by train) to St. Andrews and Carnoustie for golf and sightseeing. The train station is very close and easy to figure out how to get to where you want to go.

The owner was very accessible and helpful before and during our stay and we felt very comfortable in the apartment. It is as advertised and I would highly recommend the property for families (we had 4 adults...including our 2 college age children). We felt that we had plenty of space while we were there. If we go back to Edinburgh, we will definitely look to stay here again.

Owner's Response: Dear Dave thank you so much for your kind words about the apartment. We are delighted that it proved to be a good base for your short time in the city, and you found the location so central. You certainly made the most of your few days and it's great that you had a chance to get some golf in. We very much hope that you'll make it back to Edinburgh sometime in the not too distant future so you can see some more of the sights. Thanks again and best regards Susan

Lovely flat in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5
The flat had everything we needed after a VERY long flight from the US. Susan is a gracious hostess who provided lots of info about Edinburgh. The four of us were very comfortable, the description doesn't do it justice! As a VRBO owner I really appreciated all of the thoughtful touches. Highly recommended!!

Definitely a 5 Star Experience

  • 5 of 5
I can't come up with enough superlatives to describe this apartment. It's even better than described. The location would be virtually impossible to beat in terms of access to historical sites, restaurants, shopping, public transportation, etc. It was easy to walk back to the apartment for an afternoon break prior to heading back out in the evening to enjoy more of the wonderful city of Edinburgh.The views of the castle from the apartment are a definite plus. The apartment is spacious, comfortable, and incredibly clean. Susan was absolutely delightful to work with. If we're ever fortunate enough to return to Edinburgh we will definitely stay here again if Susan has a vacancy.
