Grant's place was everything we were looking for & more! Even before we arrived, he communicated with us very clearly and was direct. Check in process was easy & it was a very short walk from the airport tram which made everything so much easier! The location was wonderful, in mist of everything, many coffee shops near by, many pubs within walking distance, a short walk away from the castle & downtown area, it was just perfect. We also appreciated his washing machine as this was our last stop to our trip. I will definitely book his place again when in Edinburgh! Thank you so much, Grant!

Stayed at Grants for four nights although we never met Grant he gave us perfect instructions for check in and all the other instructions needed were clearly provided in the apartment. The place is really well located and an easy walk to the main attractions and the street itself has fantastic restaurants and coffee shops. When we return to Edinburgh we will definitely try and stay with Grant again.

The flat is really big and full of light. It looks exactly as the it is shown in the photos. Perfect for a solo traveller or a couple. Flat is very centrally located. Within 10-20 minutes walk from all main attractions. Plenty of grocery stores nearby. Be prepared to climb two flights of stairs up the spiral staircase to get to the flat. It looks very charming though might be an issue for some people. Loved staying there. Would like to come back next time I'm in Edinburgh.

Stayed here for two nights and had a great time. Everything was clean, neat and tidy and the host communicated really well with us about everything. There were some things for breakfast and a couple of Scottish beers for us to try which was really nice! Area is amazing for all tastes. Coffee shops, vegan restaurants, shops, bars...and it's just enough off the main roads to have some peace and quiet too if you want it. Highly recommend.
