“Great apartment” We decided to go to Edinburgh to celebrate a special wedding anniversary and chose the apartment cos it had an open fire and it seemed reasonably priced. From the beginning, contact with the owner was excellent - Mark made himself available for whatever questions we had and met us on arrival, giving us a hand with our luggage, and advising us of the best place to park, what to visit, what restaurants were good etc.
The actual apartment was well equipped, spacey with great decoration and with many original features - the fire was brill and the apartment's location was within walking distance of most tourist spots if you don't mind walking 10-15 minutes (except the castle which is a good 30 minutes up a steep hill but great if you want to get the blood pumping!) The only slight downsides were the apartment is on the third floor so lots of steps - this didn't bother us but may if you struggle with stairs - and there is no parking outside the property but, again, there is some available a short walk away.
All round, we had a great time in Edinburgh and staying in this lovely apartment added to this - it was like home from home, highly recommended.
“Good value & large apartment in quiet area close to city centre” Just got back from a short stay in this apartment. This is a good value property with very comfortable beds, plenty of hot water and good central heating. Sky TV and PS3 were a bonus. Everything we needed in the kitchen was there with tea, coffee, milk and biscuits for a nice cup of tea when we arrived. Warm welcome from the landlady who was very helpful - the taxi firm she recommended were great as well.
It is slightly out of the centre (10 mins walk ) which is what we wanted as it was a quieter here at night. Corner shop selling most things you would want a few doors away. Looking forward to a longer visit to see more of Edinburgh.
“Perfect for the weekend” We have used this apartment before and it is always the first place we try to get when in Edinburgh. Location is fantastic for the old town attractions and only a short walk from Princes Street but what sets this apartment apart from the other we have stayed in are the thoughtful extras and touches that Eve has added.
The bed is fantasically comfy and we are already looking at planning our next trip.
“Our best stay ever in Edinburgh!!” I don't think we will ever stay in a hotel in Edinburgh after our 11 day stay in the Greyfriars #4 flat! The location was excellent for exploring the city and the flat really exceeded our expectations! Axel was so helpful meeting us at the flat with the keys and a folder full of tips for the neighborhood. The flat was spotless and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. It was so nice to come home at the end of the day to so much space and be able to spread out, which is impossible in a hotel room. The views from the flat were amazing too and we couldn't have asked for a better neighborhood for our stay. Thanks so much for an amazing holiday in your beautiful city.
“Perfect getaway location in Edinburgh” Perfect homely flat for exploring Edinburgh. Well kept, clean and well equipped. Excellent location on the Royal mile for exploring the city. Really helpful information book full of tips on what to do and where to eat. Great hosts, highly recommend staying here x
“Great place to stay while visiting Edinburgh” We truly enjoyed our stay in this apartment for several reasons. It is located in an ideal location, close to the Royal Mile, within easy walking distance of most of the top sites in Edinburgh. it provides a quiet refuge after a busy day of sightseeing. It truly felt like our home away from home with the extra touches the owner has provided. It is by far one of the best apartments we have let in our travels.
“Wonderful stay at N. Castle Street” We all enjoyed spending four nights at the N. Castle Street flat. Our group included four adults and three children (aged 8-12) and we found the flat to be very spacious and beautifully appointed. The owner was very welcoming and helpful with all of our questions and we all appreciated the generous welcome basket! The location of the flat was perfect for walking to all the desirable locations of Edinburgh, we were able to see everything in the city without ever using a bus or taxi. Be aware that the flat is on the top floor (affording stunning views of the castle) so if you're adverse to stair climbing this may be a deterrent. In summary, we all enjoyed the flat and would definitely stay at N. Castle Street again if we travel back to Edinburgh.
“Lovely property” We had an amazing stay over Christmas. The property is perfectly located for shopping and visiting the city centre. Perfect view from the hot tub watching the planes coming in. Also caught a glimpse of some deer a few times in the field. The cottage itself is Lovely, very quiet, the hot tub and sauna help make it extra special. We would definitely recommend it and would love to visit again ourselves. Thank you.
“Great apartment in a central location with a warm welcome from the owner.” We're a family of five and have just returned home from a fantastic weekend away in Edinburgh. When we arrived Eve was there to meet us and left bread, eggs, jam, milk, chocolate, drinks....lovely! The apartment was perfect-so near to all the main attractions, we could walk everywhere and pop back if needed during the day. I would highly recommend Eve's place to anybody who's looking for a convenient, clean, attractive apartment to enjoy everything Edinburgh has to offer. We can't wait to return! Thanks Eve!
“It was wonderful” We booked this apartment from Australia for 2 of us and couple of our friends from Germany, all people 55+. On our arrival we’ve got very friendly hello and welcoming fruits, Scottish biscuits and fresh milk. Everything in the apartment was perfectly clean, kitchen fully equipped and all bedding very comfortable. The apartment located on walking distance from the city center and all attractions. It was very pleasant to stay in Edinburgh.
“Really great location and facilities” Stayed for two nights at the apartment which was all and more than we had hoped for. The apartment is on the third floor accessed by a stone spiral staircase but easily accessed if all are reasonably mobile.
The apartment is of excellent standard clean with all modern appliances, also a welcome pack which was much appreciated.
The apartment is in the Grass Market area of Edinburgh which is a good location to access most popular landmarks (Castle, National Museum etc.)
Really enjoyed our stay.
“Fabulous apartment in superb location” Beautiful studio apartment centrally located at the West Bow end of Grassmarket. Perfectly equipped for two. Every thought has gone into the comfort of their guests, including the type of supplies you always forget! (teabags, washing up liquid, biscuits, milk and a bottle of wine!). Plenty of local info and a map and the owners are available if you need them (but not if you don't!!). Take note of the unsuitability for certain guests - the three flights of stairs to the front door could be challenging!
“Beautiful elegant apartment” We had a fabulous w/e in this stunning luxury apartment. It was so well equipped, so tranquil and in a fantastic area - we couldn't have asked for more and we'll definitely be back.
“Centrally located and family friendly!” I booked this apartment considering it's location and accomodation for 2 adults and 2 children (5 and7) which it did very comfortably. It had everything that we required including washer/dryer, dishwasher and hairdryer. The beds and luxe linens were extremely comfortable. Wifi worked very well to. Lynne was fantastic in the booking phase and then met us at the property to let us in after a long haul flight which was very much appreciated. I would add that there are 3 flights of stairs leading up to the apartment which is worth considering if you have lots of luggage or equipment to bring up and down however does not take away from the experience at all. I really cannot fault this well located and freshly/luxuriously fitted apartment. It is a pleasure to highly recommend this property in Edinburgh.

Lovely garden flat, full of character, in central yet quiet location
Lovely apartment in a quiet street but within easy reach of city centre
We loved this apartment. It's located in an elegant building on a quiet street with beautifully kept gardens to front and back. It's within easy reach of the city centre (15 mins walk) and is very well appointed and tastefully decorated and furnished. It was also very clean: the owner is obviously very proud of it and rightly so. Everything you need is there and Emma was quick to respond to any queries we had. Highly recommended. …
274 -Constitution Place Apartment
This apartment was very comfortable, great in every way. The equipment, furnishings and decor was 1st class, everything we could need was to hand. The young man who met us on arrival was most helpful. We were very near to a main bus route to the city so did not need to use the car. Will certainly visit again if in the area. …

Stunning A listed Apt, Excellent New Town Address
Looking forward to a return visit!
This ground-floor flat was perfect - in our favorite Edinburgh neighborhood and close to all our favorite things (the Botanics, the Stockbridge Tap). Everything was ready for us, we were met at the door, checkout was a breeze. I loved sitting in the window seat and looking out on the garden square. Wish we were back there right now! …
