Yes, it is a penthouse at the top of the stairs. It was rather hard for our friends to climb up and down the stairs. They are older and out of shape, I was happy they were getting some good exercise in, though :). It seems to be a work in progress, but we were very happy with it and we would stay there again.
Booked this rental for a 3 night stay in November with my sisters. The main entrance hall from the street is a little strange - slightly forbidding- but the apartment was lovely. It was very spacious and very well equipped. We appreciated the tea/coffee etc which meant we could make a cuppa whilst we planned our stay. We were initially disappointed with no TV but the Wifi was good and so not a problem for us. The owners were very accommodating, fitting in with our timing when our trains got to Edinburgh and allowing us a little extra time when leaving, again fitting in with our trains. The location was great and the owners made some good recommendations of places nearby to eat. Would definitely recommend.
We really enjoyed this trip. The apartment is excellent, and all the rooms are huge. The bathrooms and kitchen have everything you could need for your stay. It's in a great spot, with all the main tourist attractions within walking distance. There are lots of restaurants nearby and plenty of pubs too. There's also a theatre and a cinema around the corner. This was our first trip to Edinburgh in 20 years and we enjoyed every minute. It's an easy recommendation from us.

Thank you so much Martin for a wonderful stay in such a great apartment. The flat is in a very good location in town, we walked to all the main tourist spots and really appreciated the local knowledge of places to go which were not on the main tourist routes. The apartment is very well appointed with so much space and comfort to relax in, we had everything required for us to cook our own meals for a family of 4 and when we wanted to eat out there are very good local restaurants to suit different budgets – we loved the local breakfast restaurant it was an amazing delicatessen. Martin was very flexible on key hand over and I couldn’t recommend staying here enough, we will definitely be back!
We stayed at this beautiful apartment with our friends to celebrate my 60th birthday. It was just perfect! The rooms are large and the feeling was of brightness and warmth. The host was very welcoming and helpful. We made a number of meals during our stay and found the kitchen well equipped and most importantly clean. Having 2 bathrooms was a big plus as we didn't have to queue! They both seemed very luxurious. I even managed to have a Jacuzzi one evening! For being so central it was a very quiet apartment. Because of the location we tended to walk everywhere. There are also very nice restaurants and cafes nearby. All in all, I had a great birthday and we all had a perfect time together. Definitely recommend.
