"Fabulous property & perfect location."
Mitchells is perfectly located for those wanting a weekend in Edinburgh - just a 5 minute walk from Princes Street and perfectly located for shops, pubs, restaurants and larger venues for example Murrayfield.
Christine & Graham have thought of everything even providing a welcome hamper and a stock fridge.
The only downside (and this is not about the property, more the location) is that it is situated next to a cobbled road, so the noise from passing traffic is exacerbated because of the cobbles, so my only word of advice would be to take earplugs.
This is a gorgeous property - well located for Edinburgh. Lovely!

"Great location, well equipped."
Beautiful house in great location; very central location, 2 mins from George St. Easy collection of keys; hassle free. Rented the house for a few days for a family get together. Nicely decorated and enough space to relax without being on top of each other. Enjoyed the stay very much, couldn't fault it. In fact, enjoyed it so much i could have moved in!
