We really enjoyed staying in this flat. After going out for the day it was a pleasure to come back to it. Very well furnished - absolutely everything provided - even books to read, videos and DVDs. A great plus was free parking right outside the door, and a bus stop only a few yards away for buses into town. The beds were very comfy with mattress toppers etc. Could have slept 4 comfortably, with no-one having to share a bed. Would definitely select this on another occasion.

We loved our stay here. The flat is fully equipped with everything you could ever need...and more! The location is ideal, walking distance to the beach and a few minutes from the main trainline which will have you in the centre of Edinburgh in 7 minutes. Our greeter was fantastic and very helpful as we arrived very late in the evening - she was there to welcome us with tea & biscuits! Great value for money and would definitely stay again.

Location: Handily situated with easy access to buses and trains to the centre, and by car to the countryside and the east side of the city. But driving in city centre ... !!!!! Interior gave the impression of a 'lived-in' flat rather than a soulless aparthotel type of accommodation. Very much to our liking, Equipment plentiful and comfortable. Kitchen - all that could be asked. Being a ground floor flat, very convenient for less-than-mobile nonagenarians

During the last week in January and first week in February we stayed at the above apartment in Portobello. The flat was excellent, but most of all I would like to mention the service that was provided by Angie Reid and her team. We had some problems with the central heating controls and within minutes Angie and her team had solved the problem and followed up to ensure everything was OK. We have stayed in many locations in UK and around the world and it is nice to see that someone responds to any problems that might occur, it gives you confidence to return. Thanks Peter

We stayed at this Portobello apartment over the 2013 May bank holiday weekend. We had chosen this flat because of the availability of a free on site parking space and also because it was on the ground floor. My elderly father in law was travelling with us and the flat fit the bill perfectly. The bus stop to go into Edinburgh City Centre is literally half a minute away. It takes about 20 minutes to get into the city. The flat itself is lovely! It is very spacious and will easily be able to accomodate 6 people with the sofabed in the living room. It is very well equipped. It has everything that you would need in a self catering apartment. The living room is stocked with wonderful music CD's, movie DVD's, numerous books and games. In Edinburgh's ever changing weather this can be a blessing! The ensuite is great especially if you have many people staying. My only suggestion would be to get the bath in the main bathroom fitted with an overhead shower. This would help people to have a quick shower instead of waiting for the ensuite to be free for use. If I travel to Edinburgh again I would definitely stay here again!

Excellent location, spacious flat, with parking and regular bus services close-by. Quiet neighbours, and a lovely shared garden. Flat furnished comfortably, with lots of touches to make visitors feel 'at home'. We'd highly recommend this flat for both short or longer stays, as it's certainly one of the nicest apartments in Edinburgh we've discovered over quite a number of visits to the city.

We had a comfortable five weeks stay at 13/A Milton Road East. As we stayed the whole July we bought season tickets for the train (Brunstane - Waverley) which was extremely convenient. Flat is close to promenade and beaches. Good shopping facilities in Musselburgh (we had arrived by car). Very good beds. Some problems with the locked windows. Would stay again. Thanks everybody who was involved in booking.

A stay that was troubleless. Our first criteria was met : absolutely no noise heard at night time (neighbors, traffic) for a 9-night stay. Close to everything we need : bus to get easily downtown, supermarket... Very clean, well-maintained appartment. No doubt that we will come back to this flat in the event of a next stay in Edinburgh.

This flat was spacious, tidy, well-stocked and perfectly situated. It was near local bus and train links, but also only 10 mins walk to the sea front. It was modern, nicely furnished and had all the necessary amenities plus a few extras. The owners' belongings are in the flat but this was an added bonus rather than a hindrance (DVDs, CDs and books). The flat was situated behind the busy road and therefore was wonderfully quiet. Representative of the owner easy to deal with and instructions made everything clear. Wonderful property - I would definitely stay again!

The flat was homely, very well equipped and maintained. I hired a car so being a little outside of the city center was no problem. The beach at Portobello was only 3-4 minutes away in the car which was great. Overall very good experience. Only improvement needed is to increase the speed of the internet connection.

Very quiet comfortable flat. Especially well equipped kitchen for a holiday let. We used the train several times which was very convenient although the 44 bus is also an excellent service. Enjoyed our stay very much although we got off to a bad start when the toaster fused the entire flat but was quickly rectified. This is our third stay here and we will certainly come again. Thank you.
