Kate's apartment is fantastic. The decor and attention detail was outstanding. Kate was always available if we had any questions, we felt very welcome. The welcome pack was a treat and a the clarins products a real spoil. We highly recommend this apartment.

The flat was beautifully appointed and fit our needs with four travelers perfectly. Even with four of us in the unit, we did not feel cramped or on top of each other. The modern fixtures and the kitchen allowed flexibility for our needs and the flat was located perfectly to explore Edinburgh. We especially loved the pub at the corner, The Queens Arms. I really can not say enough good things. Kate was a gracious host and worked with our travel schedule and even alerted us to items that were left behind. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!!!

We stayed at the Thistle St flat for two weeks in April. The location of the flat was perfect! There were many great restaurants and shops just out the door. The flat was large, clean, and bright. It was equipped with everything we needed for our small family. Kate stocked the fridge and bathroom with amenities. We would love to stay again on our next trip to Edinburgh! We had a wonderful time.

A lovely welcome and Kate's place exceeded our expectations! The photo's do not do it justice. The location is excellent for exploring all of Edinburgh and the only downside is the noise outside from other people.
