"Warm and welcoming"

What a fantastic apartment.
Well appointed, clean and a short walk to the main attractions of Edinburgh.
We stayed two nights with two boys. Derek had provided Lego for the boys to play with which was highlight for them!
Derek was a wonderful host who made sure that there were ample supplies of tea, coffee, milk and muffins! Importantly Derek was incredibly informative about Edinburgh and provided a wealth of written information.
Prior to us arriving Derek kept in contact with us via email to provide detailed information about Edinburgh as well as maps on how to get to the apartment.
We would highly recommend staying at Polwarth apartment.

"Best rental experience EVER!!"

Derek met us at the apartment, carried our two heavy suitcases upstairs, and even provided milk and a birthday cake for my son! He walked us through everything concerning the flat and even pulled up bus info on line! He answered all our questions and there was a ton of information in the flat about Edinburgh sights and maps. The flat was the cleanest place I've ever rented and truly felt like a home away from home, the dishes were spotless and so was the bathroom. walked in white socks and they didn't show any grime. Beds were fine and the Internet worked perfectly. Derek even had playmobile and leggo toys in the flat that my kids played with every evening. There were also plug adapters!! Bus 35 stops about a 2 min walk away and goes right to the sights and is cheap. We also discovered that a cab from the flat to castle hill was the same as two adults and two children's bus fares. There is a small grocery store about a 5-8 min walk away ( can't remember how far to be exact). Walked home in dark with kids and no husband and felt fine! I hope to return to Edinburgh and if I do I will stay here! You can't go wrong with this rental:) can't say enough good things about this place and Derek! Other owners should take lessons from him!!!
