“Royal Stay on the Royal Mile!”
Reviewed 18 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Location, location, location! You couldn't find a better and more central location in all of Edinburgh. Walking distance to everything, the castle, shops, great restaurants and night life. Minutes away from the train station. The apartment was so perfect for our family of 4. Large, quite, clean, everything needed to make a comfortable and convenient stay. Glenn was easy to work with and responded quickly. We were met by Dave who showed us the lovely flat and answered all our tourist question. We have stayed in A LOT of VRBO's over the past 20 years and this is definitely one of our favorites.

“Great location. Property a little tired”
Reviewed 30 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The property is a fantastic location though the stairs take their toll after a while. Not advisable if unfit or elderly. No lift either.
Property is a little tired now inside and could just do with a lick of paint and some plastering to the cracks. Beds are comfortable but could do with some of the space being turned into another toilet - but as listed building probably not possible. Shame! With teenage kids you could imagine the wait for the loo could be a long one!
With all of this I would revisit as the location wins the day!

“Excellent from start to finish”
Reviewed 4 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

A truly lovely flat, in the most perfect location in Edinburgh. Walking distance to all attractions. The flat is clean, comfortable and well appointed.
Booking and all communications were straight forward and Dave that greeted us, was great to deal with.
I'd certainly book again.

“Exceptional Apartment in the Heart of Old Town”
Reviewed 10 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this well appointed and ideally situated apartment in the heart of old town on the Royal Mile. We have visited Edinburgh 2 times before and enjoy the old town area for its vibrancy and history. This apartment is but a short walk from the train station and about 40 minutes by light rail from the airport. It is spacious, airy and bright located three floors up. It's kitchen is well equipped and shower spacious. The owners/management are very prompt and attentive. We stayed during the Fringe, so the activity level of the surrounding area was much higher than normal. So much is but a short walk away. Arthur's Seat, and New town are also walkable from here.

“Location Second To None”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We experienced a fantastic vacation centered around this fantastic flat. Being very close to the Waverly station, Edinburgh castle, great shopping and fantastic pubs made the location perfect. I couldn't see where it could be any better on the Royal Mile. The flat was perfectly clean, modern, and spacious. Included everything we needed including clothes washing machine, spacious bathroom, comfortable beds, and lots of room. The unit is the corner space on the top floor ( no lift ) of the building. This gives great views and insulated us from the street noise. Slept like a baby.
