Loved the apartment has everything you need and very nicely decorated! It was easy to get to from train station and nicely placed near the grassmarket. Alexis met us at the apartment was very helpful and answered questions we had. All in all had a very good weekend in edinburgh couldn't advise you more to book here if you thinking of visiting edinburgh you won't be disappointed!
Described as BIJOU and it is, very Bijou. That said it has absolutely everything you need for a great visit to Edinburgh.A genuinely friendly welcome from the owner who provided bread, tea, coffee, milk etc. when meeting us on arrival. This apartment is all about location, you can walk to absolutely everywhere of interest with no problems and you are just yards from many pubs and restaurants. Places like this are why I choose not to stay in hotels unless I have to. Must also mention the fab cocktail bar right opposite , what more could you want?
I rented this apartment from Alexis for my last 3 days in Scotland. As a woman travelling solo, I wanted to make sure that I was in a safe location, but I also wanted to make sure that I was in the heart of Edinburgh. Check on both counts! But even better - the place is right in the Grassmarket, with a nice cocktail bar across the street (the Dragonfly, which I highly recommend) a great little coffee shop and a grocery store up the street. I was able to shop in the Grassmarket and drop my bags off so that I didn't have to pack them around all day. I was also able to go back and change when the weather turned, so it was nice not to have to pack and umbrella and raincoat around. In the evening, when I wanted to go for a drink, the pubs and bars are nearby and you don't have to worry about navigating your way home in the dark, or through scary neighbourhoods. Finally - I was looking for a place that had some soul, and Alexis delivered. I highly recommend this place and will book it again my next time in Edinburgh.
We stayed for a week during the Edinburgh Festival and found everything within walking distance: Fringe venues, restaurants, pubs, supermarket, etc.
The flat itself is cosy, quiet and secure and made for an excellent stay!
Definitely highly recommended.

The apartment has everything mentioned in the ad and the owner Alexis made me feel welcome on arrival. She was also easy to correspond with prior to my check in - gave easy instructions and answered any questions I had. The apartment is clean and modern, within walking distance to many attractions and just down the street from the Grassmarket area where there are lots of places to eat/drink are. As a solo traveller, I felt safe. Was a quiet area and had a great view of the castle. Would definitely stay here again when in Edinburgh
