We spent 3 nights at Annette's place and were very satisfied. The flat was in a good location for the price and was comfortable and clean. Annette was also quick to respond to our questions and was very helpful, thanks!

We really enjoyed our weekend here. Great flat, everything you need, good location - a short walk to all the Leith amenities and very handy for buses to the centre. Definitely recommended.

We were made most welcome, charming hostess, and gave us very good guidance about reaching the city attractions, mainly the Fringe. Very helpful to have free parking right outside the apartment. The apartment is spacious and light, very comfortable.

Good apartment, perfect up to 4 people. Bus straight from the airport so perfect for arriving and leaving, and althoug is not just by the city center there are frequent buses to take you there (10 mins). It's a quiet neighborhood, and There is a Tesco down the street, so perfect for families. Annette was really kind with us, and she even left a few toys for our son, that really helped.

Annette was a very kind host and answered all our questions before the journey and when we met. The flat is close to the center, the harbour and Portobello beach. Leith Walk is close nearby and a nice neighbourhood with restaurants etc. The bus from the airport stops almost next to the flat.

Annette is a very attentive and welcoming host. The flat is very spacious and comfortable. There is a 20-30 min walk to the city centre so we usually took the bus (there is a bus stop just outside the flat with buses to the Royal Mile and Princess Street). The neighbourhood is nice and there is a Tesco really close, which is very convenient. I would recommend this place!

I am currently a devoted wife and mother of 2 lovely little boys. At the moment I am enjoying maternity leave and getting used to having 2 little menaces to look after.

I am married to a professional cyclist, and enjoy an active lifestyle myself of cycling, yoga and running. I enjoy travelling and watching my husband race all over the country. On our down time we enjoy spending time as a family entertaining the boys and watching a good movie. My ambition is to travel more and run a marathon.

As a host I would say I am very relaxed and efficient. All I ask is that you take care of our beautiful flat.
