The photos don't do this place justice! It's beautiful, spacious, clean and very comfortable. We didn't get the chance to meet David but his communication was prompt and check-in was very easy. The extra touches provided by David were above and beyond. Welcome treats aplenty. Great location a nice walk from the center of town. Highly recommend!

A very comfortable and wonderfully spacious flat in a very nice and central part of Edinburgh. We enjoyed our stay very much and would strongly recommend the flat. A couple of minor issues arose during our stay but were promptly resolved.

David was the perfect host, he was there to welcome us on arrival and show us around his lovely apartment. He even managed to save us a parking space right outside the door which was much appreciated - as were the added extras, the wine and whiskey were a really lovely touch! This was my first Airbnb experience and I cannot fault it at all - the next one has a lot to live up to! Perfect location for seeing the city, with some lovely little pubs with beer gardens close by, which was ideal for enjoying the sunny weather! I would 100% recommend staying at David's apartment, you won't be let down!

This is an absolutely stunning apartment and is fantastically located. The photos do not do the place justice. The apartment was very well equipped and had everything we could possibly need; even a welcome present of some lovely wine. I'd recommend this place to anyone going to Edinburgh. Communication was easy and check-in was a breeze, even when we were ahead of schedule. 5 stars all round

The apartment was perfect for our needs - quiet location, but central, spacious and well equipped. A great base to explore Edinburgh from and at the end of a day to come back and relax in!

I am a surgeon here in the lovely city of Edinburgh. I love good food and nice wines and any music, lovely art. Although I am just beginning to visit places round the globe myself, and my knowledge of major cities is rather poor, I know how nice it is to find a central clean lovely base camp for visits. My job has kept me very busy over the years but I massively enjoyed travel to other countries to give papers at meetings then escape to mix with the locals and join them where they eat , drink and pass the time. This opened my eyes to Hong Kong, Bali, Barcelona, Minneapolis and most recently Vienna. I have 4 kids 21,18,14,and 2yrs of age!!! I have a very serious demanding job but outside of my work I like to still carry on like I did 20 years ago. i love nice things and nice people and I hope that shows in my flat and my city. I am new to hosting but look forward to the challenge. My life is all about communicating and sorting people out with the best outcome. I hope my Airbnb will reflect that and true Scottish hospitality. I look forward to meeting you all. My motto " never completely grow up - its boring!"
