Lovely apartment in a really fantastic location just around the corner from the beautiful Shore area and walking distance from Ocean Terminal shopping centre and Royal Britannia. Easy, straight forward access to the bus service in to the centre of Edinburgh too. Even with all the anxiety, uncertainty and extra restrictions around Covid 19 Karen made our booking and stay so easy and made us feel very welcome. We wouldn't hesitate to visit again.


Fantastic! Wouldn't hesitate to book again.
Lovely apartment, in a fantastic location!

We just loved our time in your apartment. It was nice and cozy for our arrival and even a small Christmas tree up which was nice for our 3 year old niece who was with us. The place was spotless and we had a nice welcome from Tony. This was our second stay this year but this time after unpacking we were able to sit down and have a cup of tea and enjoy a piece of your lovely shortbread, a lovely touch. The apartment is just perfect for us as our family are within walking distance and of course so is Ocean Terminal for great retail therapy. Not far for the bus to take you to centre of Edinburgh should you wish.Thank you for another wonderful stay and we will be back again...and again...and again.


Price was reasonable but of course we love a bargain.
