Absolutely gorgeous place! The views across the water are breathtaking, whilst the apartment is an eclectic mix of contemporary furnishings and what looks like bits picked up from Dons travels around the world. The apartment has a great vibe, plus all you could need for a comfortable home away from home experience. Plenty of parking, just a short taxi ride away from Edinburgh town centre, and lots of space to house up to 6 people comfortably. Good communication too and collection of keys was easy. Will defo stay here again!

The apartment is simply amazing! Francois gave us a very warm welcome and explained everything to us. Supermarket is just 10 minutes walking distance, there is a bus stop nearby the apartment to get to the town. We will definitely stay again!!

Although the previous reviews told of spaciousness and spectacular views, walking into this high end flat will surprise you!! This property is beyond spectacular and has amenities that will likely outshine any other vacation rental in Edinburgh and surrounding area. Two things are significant about this flat... clearly the spectacular views are beyond amazing and second is the spaciousness. With two separate en-suites as well as a study, a fully stocked gourmet kitchen, and two balconies, we truly could not have asked for more other than more time to enjoy!! I had a number of communications with Don and received prompt and courteous responses each time. My family and I will highly recommend this memorable apartment to anyone who travels to Edinburgh.

It's difficult to describe how fantastic Don's apartment is. The views are amazing as described by others. It was a peaceful haven to return to after busy days at the festival. We loved the space, comfortable beds, well equiped kitchen, en suite in both bedrooms and the great location. Would highly recommend to others.
