"Great holiday rental"

This was our second visit to this lovely rental house. As on the first visit (in 2011), the house was very clean and well maintained. The house was as described on the web page and the furnishings were comfortable and attractive. The kitchen was well equipped with cooking utensils, pots and pans, crockery and cutlery and we cooked many meals there. Fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher were all clean and in good working order. The combined washer/dryer in the basement worked well. Wifi was available and TV had a good selection of channels. Bedrooms and bathroom upstairs were attractive and very clean. The stairs going up to the bedrooms might be difficult for people with mobility issues. There was always hot water available and the shower over bath worked well. The heating system in the house was excellent and ensured a cozy house on cold October days. There is a very pleasant outside patio that I’m sure one would enjoy if the weather permits. There were hanging baskets of flowers on the patio and front door even in October….such is the attention to detail at Embden House. There are many shops, restaurants nearby and bus service is good in the area. We enjoyed very much both of our visits to this lovely rental and hope to return soon.

We always try to maintain the highest standards within Embden House both in terms of amenities and cleanliness and it is therefore very rewarding to have such a recommendation from a returning guest. Thank you I note your comments regarding anyone with mobility issues and have highlighted this within the description on the website. We try to focus on details as you've mentioned and pleased you recognise all our efforts. Thank you for your comments and we look forward to welcoming you back very soon.

"A lovely house and excellent location"

We stayed for a week in Embded House whilst visiting our daughter at Dundee University. The location of the property is excellent for all of the local amenities in Broughty Ferry and only a ten minute car journey to the centre of Dundee. The house itself is well furnished and very clean with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. We would definitely book again.

Thank you for your great review. We try to maintain the highest level of cleanliness to ensure you have as comfortable a stay as possible. Therefore I'm so pleased you found this to be true and of a very high standard.

Our stay in Embden House was very enjoyable, there is nothing I would change. The house had everything you need and more. The location was very good for walking to the shops, dinning out,the beach and bus stop if you wanted to go into town. My family and I will be back to stay at Embden House again.

Thank you so much for the lovely review of Embden House. We appreciate your feedback as we want to make everyone's stay a memorable one. We have tried to ensure the house has everything for a fabulous stay. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future!
