“Amazing home in an amazing location!”
Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely property, we can't recommend it enough! Everything about the apartment was amazing. The rooms are all so spacious, the beds are so big and comfy and all the little extra's (including the welcome hamper) made the our stay exceed our expectations. We couldn't have asked for a better location!! We had a wonderful stay and we will definitely be returning!
“Exceptional apartment in a perfect location”
Perfectly situated with wonderful views views to the castle! We (a group of seven girl friends) stayed for a two night city break. We usually stay in hotels when we go away together and this was our first experience of how an apartment could work for our group - it did not disappoint! In fact, the apartment was a firm hit with everyone and we won't be staying in hotels again! The communication from Helen and Ian was faultless from beginning to end and we were meant by Ian when we arrived and welcomed into the property. The photos do not do the property justice, as it's much, much bigger than we anticipated. It was spotlessly clean, with good bed linen and fluffy towels and the 'welcome' hamper had something for everyone! Thank you so much Ian and Helen for the use of 50/4 North Castle Street!
Owner's reply: Thank you for the wonderful review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and we do hope you will be able to return soon. I'm glad you appreciated the towels and bed linen as their quality is really important to us and it's always great to get such positive feedback. We look forward to welcoming you back.
“Warm welcome to perfect apartment, highly recomended”
This was a fabulous apartment in a perfect location, The owners couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful to ensure that we enjoyed our stay in Edinburgh
“Fantastic property in a great location for a fair price with brilliant customer care.”
We very much enjoyed our fifth visit to Edinburgh. This property is really well located almost in the heart of the City but pleasingly quiet too. Lots of bars, restaurants and shops nearby and buses, taxis and trains galore within easy striking distance. The park a few hundred yards away is beautiful. There's a few stairs to negotiate but nothing that taxed our septuagenarian travelling buddies! Inside the decor and layout is great and everything required to 'stay in' if you choose is there too. Helen's personal touches are evident and welcome both in things like the welcome pack itself and also how the booking was managed. I suspect we'll be back - great holiday.
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your review. We are delighted you enjoyed the apartment and we would love to welcome you back in the future.
“Great host, great apartment, great location”
North Castle Street apartment is well located within easy walking distance of Edinburgh's tourist sights and restaurants. Convenience stores (for some food and sundries) are within walking distance but if you plan on cooking-in and need a good grocery store a car, cab or public transit is required. The apartment has four, full flights of stairs but is exactly as advertised. Unlike a lot of tiny European stairwells, North Castle Street's stairwell is large, well-lit and wide....no trouble getting up with suitcases or groceries. You do need to be moderately fit and leave a little energy from sightseeing for making the trek up the stairs at the end of a day. The apartment is worth the trek. It is spacious, comfortably decorated and well appointed. There is a lot of spreading out room between the large eat-in kitchen and the living room. The photos don't do it justice. It is larger and homier that it looks on-line. Cooking at home was a delight. The kitchen is stocked with every tool and appliance you might need. The welcome basket was stocked full of delights that we munched on throughout our ten day stay. We were five adults...and used all three bedrooms. The upstairs bedroom looks like it might be tight in the photos but it is plenty big enough that you don't bang your head the way you think you might. The two bathrooms were a great plus for our size group. Surprisingly, we stayed in Edinburgh during a heat wave! We found that the apartment had plenty of windows on the main floor and skylights on the upper floor to let the lovely breezes flow in and whisk away the heat. If Edinburgh is your main travel focus...you really don't need a car while staying at North Castle Street. We, however, had obligations outside of Edinburgh and needed two cars. The off-street parking is superb but because there is only one clicker to open the gate and the spaces are in tandem...you will need to coordinate the timing of your comings and goings. While we were five adults it is obvious that North Castle Street welcomes families with children. Many of Helen's recommendations are kid-friendly from restaurants to sightseeing. We benefited from two of her restaurant recommendations and enjoyed our favorite lunch and favorite take-away dinner based on what she advised. Everything, including wi-fi and TV, worked perfectly throughout our stay. Finally, working with Helen on all the details of our stay was fantastic. My only regret: I wish she had a way to accept credit card payments directly instead of going through PayPal (which is a very expensive way to deal with international transactions). Helen is very responsive via e-mail. She met us at the door on the day of our arrival. She was very prompt in returning our security deposit. Her attention to details (like the welcome basket, written recommendations for where to eat and what to see as well as how she outfitted the kitchen) made our stay at the North Castle Street apartment the best overall rental experience we had in the UK (we were in the UK five-plus weeks and rented a total of 5 self-catering houses/apartments). North Castle Street was the best of five rentals and I give it an overall 5.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your review, it was a pleasure to welcome you to our apartment and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Just to be clear for our future guests, the apartment is on the top floor of a 3 storey apartment building, so there are actually 3 flights of stairs, not 4. There are stairs in the apartment but this is because it is a double upper. Being at the top affords us the fabulous views we enjoy across Edinburgh. Using paypal allows our guests to make credit card payments from all over the world. Whilst there are transaction charges for international payments, there are no charges for payments made in the UK. This is a secure and safe way of taking credit card payments. As owners we do have to pay for each transaction but this is not passed on to our guests. We do also accept direct payments.
The flat is right in the centre of things, but still quiet. It was extremely comfortable, with an excellent welcome pack. The owners had gone out of their way to make life easy for us, setting up a cot and high chair for our son (who also loved the bucket full of toy cars he found in his bedroom) and leaving milk and other essentials in the fridge. We would definitely book it again.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind review - it was a pleasure to welcome you and your family to our apartment and I'm glad your little boy liked the toy cars. We hope you are able to visit us some time again in the future.
“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.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your very kind review. we would be delighted to have you as our guests again in the future. I'm really glad you enjoyed the apartment and had a wonderful stay in Edinburgh.
“Perfect in every way.”
My American wife and I had family visiting from across the pond and we decided to take a 4 day trip to Edinburgh. When looking for somewhere to stay, we had very specific requirements; we wanted somewhere of good quality, centrally located yet relatively quiet that wasn't crawling with loud clubbers on an evening. North Castle Street ticked all those boxes perfectly for us (the flat is absolutely superb), however, it was the extra touches provided by Helen that truly exceeded our expectations and ensured our time in the apartment was most memorable. For example, the lovely gift basket (which included a yummy bottle of champagne!) and hugely informative guides to the city that greeted us on arrival were highly impressive. We tried 2 of the recommended restaurants, Gusto and Strada, both were delicious! A big thank you to Helen from all of us, we will be back in the future! Nathan, Tiffany and family.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind review, it was a pleasure to welcome you all and I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We would love to have you back.
“A Capital Property”
It was critical that this weekend was as special as it could be “a significant birthday” surprise for my wife. Children and partners gathering together for a well planned break, the only concern was where to stay that would allow a relaxed atmosphere with no pressures. North Castle Street ticks all the boxes, the perfect house in a perfect location. It’s the little things that make the difference. Helen the owner met us at the apartment and welcomed us into what can only be described as a luxurious home. I have stayed in some 5 star hotels that don’t reach this standard. The welcome basket in the kitchen was a lovely touch that saved us being faced with the prospect of immediately having to go shopping. The only problem we faced was that everything was so perfect we hated going out. However being in the centre of everything but far enough of the main thoroughfare to be quiet made life easy. We will certainly return again.
Owner's reply: Thank you for such a kind review. It was a pleasure to welcome you and your family on your wife's special birthday. I'm so glad that our apartment fitted the bill. We would love to welcome you back again.
“Excellent accommodation in an excellent location”
Party of 6 ladies from 18 to 60ish!..........excellent welcome pack on arrival- virtually everything thought of to cater for us all. Accommodation of a very high standard, spotlessly clean and still providing a homely feeling.Fantastic views of Edinburgh. Excellent location for exploring Edinburgh, very central and convenient. Couldn't recommend this highly enough. Great time.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind review and it was a pleasure to accommodate you all. We are so pleased you enjoyed the apartment and hope you choose to visit us again in the future.
