"Fabulous apartment"

When I started looking at apartments to rent in Edinburgh there seemed to be a large choice of very nice looking properties but something kept drawing me back to the West End Condo. I am so glad it did! The apartment was excellent, spotlessly clean, comfortable, well equipped and it had a real 'home from home' feeling to it. From the moment of booking Karen was so efficient and helpful, always responding quickly to emails and once the balance had been paid a very comprehensive travel guide was sent through. The apartment is situated in an established residential area of Edinburgh which we loved. It is on a very quiet street and from the lounge windows there are views to the grounds of the Modern Art Gallery. It was an easy 20 minute walk to Princes Street but we always enjoyed getting back to the peace and quiet of the apartment. Karen really has thought of everything to make her guests stay enjoyable. We appreciated the welcome pack and also the thoughtful touches of toiletries and kitchen basics that were there for guests to use. We will certainly return to the apartment if we go back to Edinburgh.

It was a pleasure working with you and so pleased our place met your needs. Your comments are very generous - thank you so much. Please remember we offer a discount to returning guests and hope you come again.

"Very quiet home away from home"

We stayed at the west end condo at the end of a road trip around the UK. It was a lovely holiday rental nestled in the middle of a very nice neighbourhood. The apartment was very well equipped and everything was of a very high standard. The owner had provided good information for everything in the apartment as well as local activities and places to eat. It was fantastic to be able to stay here for a few days before our long trip back to New Zealand. Thank you for providing such a great stay for our holiday.

So glad our place helped you have a good end to your holiday and it had what you needed

"Great base to visit Edinburgh with family"

We visited for a short break over Easter with our two teenage children and had a great time. Right next door to the Modern Art Museum, so handy for their transport bus for a £1 straight into Princes Street if art is your thing. Very well appointed with modern kitchen and bathrooms, although I was defeated by the induction hob as I don't have one myself (there are instructions available and also a microwave ). Very comfortable and relaxing, and the owner extremely helpful. About 25 minutes pleasant walk back from town if you need to. We would go back.

Thank you so much for taking time to write your review. So pleased you enjoyed your stay at our place. Thank you for your kind words. We look forward to seeing you again. Remember we offer a discount for returning guests.

"Amazing place to spend NewYear"

So glad we chose this apartment to spend NewYears Eve. We have stayed in many places and this is amongst the best. It is beautifully presented, spacious and very clean. We were amazed by the bathroom and kitchen so much so it has made us want to modernize our own to the same level. The kitchen is so hi-tech, modern and beautiful and absolutely everything you could possibly need, and more, is provided. Karen is so helpful from start to finish she was there when we arrived and answered any questions we had regarding our stay in Edinburgh her advice was invaluable, she contacted us throughout our stay to check things were ok. We were slightly concerned that the apartment was located a short distance from the centre however it was easy enough to walk and taxis were cheap quick and reliable even over NewYear so we needn't have worried. We will definitely return to this apartment when we next visit Edinburgh.

Sorry to not respond to your review sooner. We are absolutely delighted you enjoyed your stay at the New Year We hope now spring has arrived in Edinburgh you will come back again and see our beautiful city in full bloom. We offer returning guests including their family and friends a discount for future stays.

"Brilliant Place to stay"

This was great accommodation, easy access to city centre and surrounds and off street parking. The welcome bonus pack was one of those bonus extras which makes all the difference.

We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at our place including the welcome pack. We like to help guests settle in with some local information and of course tea, coffee, shortbread, milk, bread, butter and wine.

The flat is gorgeous, clean, light, beautifully decorated with all mod cons - we had a lovely time, great location especially as we wanted to go to the Gallery of Modern Art which is just round the corner. We were three friends - ample space and would certainly recommend it and return!

It was a pleasure to have you stay and thank you for writing this review. The flat is so peaceful overlooking the Modern Art Gallery. Glad you got to visit the galleries. Hope to see you again. Karen

"Excellent accommodation in a lovely, quiet residential area"

This is a superior apartment in a quiet, leafy street which is only a 15 minute walk to Princes Street. The accommodation is bright and spacious with tasteful décor and is very well equipped. Karen provided quick, efficient service when I booked and replied promptly to subsequent e-mails. I would certainly recommend this apartment and would not hesitate to book again myself.
