My friend and I loved the apartment locating in a convenient location yet with quiet neighborhood. Alexis is very nice and helpful giving us all necessary information plus the welcoming bread and snacks which made long haul tourists like us feeling warm n cozy. Everything was very well thought of in the apartment with more than what we expected. Definitely worthwhile for a re-visit.
My friends were so envious when I posted photos of this apartment! It was the perfect location for our weekend in the city and had all the amenities we needed.
Advice on parking: For folks from out of the country driving a hired car, be sure the registration number you enter into the parking meter exactly matches the car's plates. On most U.S. plates, the "1" has that little serif on the top. So, we goofed and read our number as having an uppercase "I" when it was the number "1" instead .. and got a rather expensive ticket for our time in the city. We actually walked up on the guy writing the ticket, who explained our mistake, but did not offer to waive the penalty. :-(
I have just spent the past week renting Bijou, just next to the Grassmarket in Edinburgh. I can't fault it. Alexis goes out of her way to make you feel welcome and instantly at home in this cosy little flat. The fixtures and fittings are first class and the location is perfect. I did not once have to use public transport to get around. This is an ideal rental for any solo traveller as the property is very secure and part of a gated community. Bijou has everything you need though only a smallish amount of storage space but this was not a problem for me. I can't wait to stay there again soon.

Had a lovely 5 day stay here recently. Alexis was wonderful, she met us at the apartment with a warm welcome and a starter pack with some bread, busicuits and waffles to get us going! The apartment is exactly as it looks in the photographs, absolutely stunning with great attention to detail. The location couldn't be any better, directly opposite the castle on one side, with a great selection of bars and restaurants on the opposite side perfect for foodies like me! All in all we had a wonderful stay in a wonderful city, made better only by the apartment itself, definitely reccomend, definitely be returning soon! Thanks Alexis for everything!
Stayed here in Jan and had a fantastic time despite rain and snow. Apartment is lovely and cosy, beautifully furnished and equipped. Alexis was out of the country but still kept in touch which was very helpful and reassuring, even arranged for bread and jam to be left for us. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone who wants a comfortable break in a gteat location
