Lisa is fantastic! And 49a is awesome. Lisa made our check in and stay so easy and comfortable. Very helpful, in touch and available for everything. The home was very comfortable and in an absolute perfect location. When we were challenged with the European style washer/dryer combo Lisa immediately got help and the owner Pam came over herself to help us. Pam was so nice and pleasant and helpful we just couldn't believe it!! Wow talk about customer service and focus. We could not have done any better and this was a great choice! We thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you so very much!!

Lisa's place was incredible for our group of 6. Great size with lots of bathrooms and communal hangout space, plus we loved the game selection! Well equipped kitchen to cook meals and a nice sized dining table. Lisa was very accommodating and easy to reach both before and during our stay--even on a holiday weekend. The flat was in a wonderful location, walkable to everything and lots of great restaurants and bars nearby, without feeling loud or too crowded an area. Check in was seamless, would definitely stay here again!

This was a fantastic place to stay. A small (but doable) hike from the train station with with great views of the castle after stepping onto the sidewalk. Another small hike to the bus tour to take you around town. The home was very clean and kid friendly. It is close to many different eateries, and the hosts were very gracious. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

What a fabulous apartment! It was exactly as described & anyone looking for a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom apartment in Edinburgh should seriously consider this one. The kitchen was well equipped & there was even a great music collection. The welcome pack was appreciated and there was great communication from our host both before and during our visit. We're now planning our return visit for next year!
