“Utterly Brilliant!”
Reviewed 28 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We arrived late in the day. There was a gale blowing, rain pelting down, and even though Eve's apartment is a close walk to the railway station, it felt very long to us. To add to my woes, I was suffering the most terrible cold and felt very ill and very sorry for myself.

So it was with great feelings of relief and happiness that we saw Eve's friendly smiling face at the door, and even greater relief when she ushered us into the really charming apartment.

It's in one of the steep back lane-ways that are everywhere in Edinburgh. Initially you think, "Oh, this place is dreadful!" But you soon realise it's the Edinburgh style, and totally acceptable.

Eve is a most generous hostess. Not only was the house immaculate, the linen fine and fresh, the towels plentiful and soft, but she provided tea, milk, bread, yogurt, fresh fruit, home made jam, home made soaps, and all manner of biscuits, chocolates and distinctive Scottish treats. I've stayed in many apartments around the world, but never in one so generously furnished with tasty treats and a home-like feeling.

Because I was sick I spent the next day in bed, and there couldn't have been a nice apartment to spend the day in. Everything you want is there - excellent WiFi, good kitchen, endless hot water and peace and quiet.

This is not just a holiday rental, it's a real home, comfortable, welcoming and relaxing. I could not recommend it more highly.

“Most comfortable place ever!”

I stayed at Eve's apartment with my family last weekend. It was fantastic. Eve greeted us herself, and she had filled the apartment with provisions and treats for us. Fruit, Juice, biscuits, crisps and chocolate for the kids, Milk, Coffee, Tea, home-made jam, Bread, Eggs from her hens and more for all of us. I enjoyed the drinks trolley, after a day of shopping and sight seeing. The kids loved the play station and the vast collection of DVD's.
The bedrooms are kitted out beautifully, and the beds are extremely comfortable.
The Shower in the Bathroom is great, and the bath long enough, even for me, and I am tall.There were Hair dryers and Straighteners in each of the bedrooms.
Fresh linen on the beds, towels and home made soaps and toiletries were waiting for us.
The apartment is big and roomy, freshly decorated and very homely.
We loved it.
The location is perfect, in the middle of Edinburgh's Old Town. We took part in a Ghost walk, recommended by Eve, it was a bit spooky, but great. Shops are nearby, as well as Restaurants, Coffee bars, Pubs and parks. The castle is a few minutes away. This apartment is by far the best place we ever stayed in.
We will definitely be back. Thank you, Eve

“Beautiful Apartment ON THE ROYAL MILE!!”
Reviewed 17 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

person found this review helpful

I stayed in the beautiful apartment with my teenage Son last weekend. Eve was there to greet us, and to explain how everything worked. The apartment was cosy and warm and furnished very nicely to a high standard. It felt like a home from home. Eve provided cleaning materials, towels and extras, like milk, butter, bread, bottled water, juice and would you believe it fresh eggs from her own chickens, as well as homemade jam, chocolates, biscuits, cereals, tea, coffee, sugar, and lots more. Talk about being spoiled! The bathroom is modern and had Eve's homemade soaps, shower cream and big fluffy towels. The DVD collection was welcome, as well as the PlayStation and games, and when we were in kept my Son happy. The apartment is right off the Royal Mile, near the Castle and the Grass Market. Princes Street and shopping was just a few minutes walk away. We especially enjoyed the Christmas Market by Prices Street and the 'Street of Lights' on the Royal Mile. The lift up to the apartment was also welcome when we returned from the shops, loaded with bags. We will definitely stay again.
