This gorgeous rental comes exactly as advertised.
A friend and I spent a glorious 10 days nestled within the sumptuous walls - well, between outings! - of this apartment and couldn't have been happier.
The rooms are beautifully presented, giving two girls used to living in lodgings more akin to student digs quite the treat! It almost feels like stepping back into a Jane Austin novel, with high ceilings and comfortable furnishings that speak much of Alexandra and her family. If it's ''the little things,'' then this stunning ground-floor apartment has no shortage of endearing, amusing and precious ornaments that only enhance the feel of having found a home away from home.
The location is ideal for those who plan on exploring Edinburgh, either using public transport or on foot (which we favoured). Just off the main drag, far enough away to be quiet of an evening and close enough to stumble back to, regardless what condition you find yourself in!!
What's more, Alexandra and her husband, Fraser who met us on arrival are warm, welcoming and extremely helpful. They ensured we had every possible comfort and were open to provide any other assistance we might require. The tea selection was an utter delight (I tried a new one nearly everyday and STILL hadn't gotten to them all by the end!); and their kindness as an introduction to our holiday made it that much more special.
We had the most wonderful time and the surroundings in which we found ourselves on returning from a day out only enhanced our fondness for the city.
Thank you so much, Alexandra - I do sincerely hope we will be seeing you again, someday.

I spent a week at this lovely apartment in Edinburgh's New Town and I could not have chosen a better location.
Situated a short walk from the west end of Princes Street, with easy access to public transport, shops and restaurants as well as many of Edinburgh's attractions and cultural venues, the apartment itself is located in an elegant and quiet street. The accommodation was very comfortable, spacious and beautifully furnished - very pleasant to relax in after a busy day out and about.
Equally important was Alexandra's friendliness and the care which she took to ensure that I would have everything I needed for my stay. In our exchange of emails following my booking she was most helpful with information, and I already felt welcome even before the warm reception on arrival.
I enjoyed my stay very much - thanks, Alexandra!
