“We were blown away by Eve's thoughtfulness”
Reviewed 30 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

One of the best places we have stayed. Eve was wonderful - very friendly and made us feel welcome. She thought of everything and lots more. We were stunned by all the little goodies that Eve supplied - flowers, chocolates, wine, home made jam (which was delicious) biscuits, milk, cooking oil, bread, butter and even eggs from her own chickens. She also provided hand made soaps. It was a comfortable, cosy flat that was close to pubs, restaurants, supermarket & bus route. A 10 minute walk to Princes St Gardens made it even more appealing. Only downside was no views from windows and no drawers to put your clothes in, just a wardrobe. It can get a little noisy on a Friday or Saturday night as the revellers walk through the Wynd but thats to be expected in the Grassmarket - it doesnt last long. Would definitely stay there again as long as Eve is the owner!

“Lovely apartment in the Old Town”
Reviewed 26 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Outside: seconds away from the bars, cafes and restaurants in the Grassmarket. Walking distance of very many of the sights and attractions of Edinburgh, especially the Castle and Arthurs Seat. All sorts of shops nearby. Steps and alleys lead who knows where in Edinburgh Old Town. Inside: clean, comfortable and all the facilities. A warm welcome and a selection of food and drink to keep you going for days.

“Amazing apartment, great location and fantastic owner!”
Reviewed 18 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We arrived an hour earlier than planned and the owner was there to welcome us. A quick tour and she left us to it.

Lots of snacks and treats for us, from coffee and milk to bacon and fresh eggs, hand made soaps and even ponchos for the rugby! Eve thought of everything.

The apartment is plenty big enough for full capacity of 4 and everything you need. It is well furnished with CD player and dvds.

It is located a stone throw away from grassmarket with plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from.

We would definitely recommend and wanted to stay longer. A huge thanks to Eve for a lovely place to stay during our trip to Edinburgh.

“An absolute gem!”
Reviewed 16 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Well, what can i say?! I was warmly welcomed by Eve, and kindly shown around the immaculate flat to find a welcomed basket of complimentary goodies, which was just fantastic!
A very warm and cosy place - bed was so comfortable, and the bath jacuzzi was an added bonus. I also discovered homemade soaps, which were to die for - amazing for those who have sensitive skin, and again, an added bonus which made our stay that extra special.
Very good wifi, lots of channels & DVDs to choose from and needless to say, it just felt like home.

A wonderful host, location very central, and we will definitely be back again when heading through to Edinburgh. Thank you so much for welcoming us and offering such luxury accommodation at a great price! A++++

“What a wonderful apartment and a wonderful host too! It was a pleasure!”
Reviewed 24 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Well what can I say other than that I'm so glad I booked this apartment as opposed to one of the many hotels in Edinburgh. It's literally in the heart of Grassmarket, exactly where I wanted to be. Eve's hospitality was splendid, the apartment had thee most comfortable double bed I've ever slept in, the apartment was clean, it was very cosy, all amenities and more, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge, you name it, it had it. Fridge was stocked with water, juice and even a complimentary bottle of wine. We had fruit, we had snacks, sweets. It had hi speed broadband too which is always a plus. The jacuzzi was a great touch too. If you get the chance to book this place then do it, you won't regret it, I'll be returning here the next time I visit Edinburgh. My friends loved it too! Thanks again Eve :D
