Very Good

“Look no further.”

Reviewed 9 May 2014

This rental accommodation is second to none. Everything, from the initial enquiry through to check-out,was made stress free by the exceptional attention to detail of Eddie and Doreen, the owners. Their comprehensive information packs are excellent. The Penthouse was the perfect venue for our family birthday celebration and all three generations had a wonderful time. We would recommend the Penthouse to anyone who wishes to have a luxurious experience in a top class venue.

“Fantastic Family Stay”

Reviewed 21 Apr 2014

The Penthouse is a perfect stay in the city for families and friends. We (my parents, my brother, my husband and I) stayed in The Penthouse for a 10 day visit in Edinburgh and my brother's wedding. It was absolutely perfect. Eddie & Doreen made us feel like family. Their correspondence throughout the booking process and before our arrival was fantastic. The Penthouse is a fabulous spacious flat with everything one needs to feel at home in the city. We had a great time cooking and entertaining family and friends during our stay. The Penthouse has a lovely kitchen that is equipped with everything you need of cooking. The open lounge and dining area is inviting with beautiful big windows. We spend many evenings relaxing and enjoying this space. All the bedrooms are spacious and the beds are very comfortable. The bathrooms are very neat and well kept. A truly amazing and enjoyable family stays for us with memories that will last a lifetime.

Response from the owner Dear Rozahn, Thanks you so much for your lovely review, Doreen and I loved having you and your family to stay, particularly when it was for such a special occasion as your brother's wedding. We were really pleased to hear that you really liked the fact that you were able to use our Edinburgh home, The Penthouse, as a base for you to entertain your extended family, If you are ever back in Edinburgh then we'd be delighted to welcome you back to stay in The Penthouse. Kind regards Eddie and Doreen Ewen

“Best value money can buy - for a luxurious 'true home experience”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2014

The Penthouse Experience starts way before your visit - with Eddie's introductory emails, phone calls and preparation. The amenities are impeccable and will always exceed your expectations - spotless and always like new. Then there's the attention to detail by Eddie and Doreen - every little detail that goes way beyond customer service - from restaurant recommendations to maps to Dvds and basic groceries when you walk in! The location is ideal to see Edinburgh on foot - very centrally located, close to Princes Street, yet very quiet. This place is truly a home away from home!

Beautiful accomodations. Eddie and Doreen very very helpful from our first inquiry. Immediate response to all our concerns. We were treated as family. The Penthouse had everything we needed to make our Family trip one to treasure for a lifetime. We were to Edinburgh with all our children for our daughters wedding. Upon arrival we were welcomed with gifts and essential food items. Everything was perfect, the amenities were exactly as listed. Ideal location within walking distance to many sites and the food market. We felt very safe walking at any time of day or night. We rented a car and having a parking space right outside the door was very convenient. The appartment was very nicely decorated and clean. We will be back.

“Great home”

Reviewed 23 Sep 2013

Beautiful home for family or group. We stayed for a week with 3 couples. Large living area & bedrooms. Very well maintained & furnished. Eddie, the owner was extremely accommodating and very helpful with local attractions and suggested restaurants. Convenient to the bus system and many nearby restaurants. Highly recommend.

“Tourist friendly”

Reviewed 20 Sep 2013

The Penthouse was well located for access to buses, quality restaurants to eat in or take out, grocery stores, and tourist activities. The condominium was comfortable, extremely clean, and very modern. The owner was a gracious host providing much information about the area and able to make accommodations for luggage storage and date changes when requested. It was a remarkable experience in a remarkable city.

“Great Location and Perfect Vacation apartment”

Reviewed 13 Jun 2013

Eddie Ewen treated me like a special friend throughout the rental process. From the beginning of my first inquiry to arriving at the the Penthouse Eddie was helpful. We were so pleasantly surprised at the many amenities which our host provided for us to make our stay in Edinburgh a memorable one. In all of my experiences renting a vacation property, his service to his rental clients was by far the best I have every received. Cleanliness is an issue with me and The Penthouse was among the cleanest of any vacation rental I have ever rented. A rental unit must be clean for me to relax and enjoy myself. This unit is indeed clean and I felt as if I were in my own home. Included in the apartment are detailed instructions on how to use the appliances such as the washer/dryer and dishwasher. The Penthouse is superbly furnished and comfortable and Eddie will do everything to make your stay great! We were in Edinburgh as tourists and connecting to the Old Town and New Town areas was important. The apartment is located about two to three short blocks and an easy walk from a main thoroughfare where we were able to connect with public transportation and taxis. Both grocery stores and restaurants were within easy walking distance. We found the location to be quite convenient. Future renters must be aware that there is no lift and that you must carry your luggage to the third floor. We hope to return to Edinburgh and The Penthouse will be where we stay.
