A bright, beautiful and large house, wonderful for a stay with a family. We especially enjoyed the open kitchen, the back yard, and the many lovely design elements, from the stand-alone tub in the master bath to the charming pictures in the children's rooms. The home is convenient to shops and tourist sites--the bus is across the street, and will take you to Old Town in under 15 minutes. It is on a busy street, and the front bedrooms do get some traffic noise, though the back ones are very quiet. We appreciated the welcome basket of goodies the hosts left, as well as being allowed to check in early--very kind! Beds and linens are wonderfully comfortable and immaculate. We had a few of small issues--no bathroom soap, odd for the price/quality of the home. (The hosts did have it delivered the next day.) The family controls on the internet service meant we couldn't reach some crucial sites (it was also fixed, after some back-and-forth). And we were surprised to find a huge pile of trash in the yard, waiting to be taken out.

Response from Alexander:
Many thanks for this Sara and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. It's a wonderful time of year to visit and you and your family were most welcome in our house. I appreciate your helpful comments. We do aim to leave White Company shampoo, body lotion and body wash in each bathroom. It was an oversight that there was no soap on your visit. We had soap delivered to you by courier as soon as it's absence was identified. Your point regarding wifi access is a tricky one. The internet firewall provided by Virgin Media is called Childsafe and protects us from third party users accessing inappropriate contents. However when we identified that it was blocking access to the SSL sites you were attempting to access we took this down. The bin collection service by Edinburgh Council is usually very good but I am afraid it occasionally doesn't collect on time, many apologies for this.

We stayed during the festival with children and found the property great as it's in a quiet location but within easy reach of all the sites and festival venues. Fantastic family home which is only a 15 min walk to Princes street or hop on one of the regular buses which stop across the road. I cannot fault the property or the owners, I would highly recommend it and will most likely stay here again.
