For the duration of your stay you will be left to enjoy the flat as your own home unless you are in need of anything, in which case I will be more than happy to help.

Helen was a great host, even though we booked last minute she found a way to get us to a bed soon after we landed in Edinburgh. The flat we stayed in was a 1 bedroom with a pull out and not the 2 bedroom we booked. We did have the option to stay there but Helen would have had to kick out the people she had there as she told them they could stay without thinking about the listing. In the end she gave us a great deal in old town and we were very pleased! 10/10

The flat was bright and clean, with everything we needed. It's on a quiet street but not far from the cafes, bars and shops of Leith walk, and only about 15 minutes walk from Waverley Station. Helen was lovely and did everything she could to make our stay a good one. Would definitely stay here again!

Helen's apartment is ideally located in a quite residential area but within walking distance to Princes St and the Royal Mile. It is the perfect space from which to explore Edinburgh. It is well suited to 2 couples who would still like to utilise the common living areas. When we stayed there were 6 of us which was a little squishy but manageable. Helen herself is a delightful gem! She is so helpful and her communication leading up to staying in the apartment is second to none. I cannot fault either Helen or her apartment and would definitely stay there again.

Helen's flat is really welcoming and at a walkable distance from the Bus Station and the city centre. She is a great host, easy to communicate with and really friendly. The flat is lovely and very clean, I really recommend staying there.

Helen is an excellent host. She met us at the flat before check-in so that we could drop off our bags & explore. She gave wonderful recommendations of things to do that would steer us off the overtly tourist-y course. The flat was larger than we expected & everything was in immaculate condition. Flat was also very centrally located but on a nice quiet street. Would definitely book again for a trip to Edinburgh! Thanks Helen!
