About this listing

The space

For rent is a lovely double bedroom within a beautifully presented house close to the shore area of Leith, Edinburgh. The room is well sized with a comfortable double and single bed . It is one of five bedrooms in a great house only minutes from the shore area of Leith. The shore is regarded as one of Edinburgh's most attractive and vibrant areas with friendly independent bars, coffee houses and many of Edinburgh's, if not Scotland's, most famous restaurants. These include Michelin starred Martin Wisharts and The Kitchin, along with a number of great seafood restaurants which reflects Leith's strong maritime tradition. Other amenities ten minutes from the house include a swimming pool, post office, supermarkets and a 10 screen cinema and shopping centre.
At the same time, we are only about twenty minutes by bus from the centre of Edinburgh and its innumerable attractions. These services, the 22 and 16, run frequently day and night from stops minutes from the house, allowing our guests to have the best of both worlds on their visit to the city.
Myself and partner Janice will be your hosts during your visit. We are a friendly and helpful couple who have lived in Leith for many years, and look forward to directing you to the best sites and making your visit as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.
During your stay here you will have full access / use of the following facilities:
- A large professional kitchen with modern appliances (i.e.
cooker, fridge freezer, coffee pot ,microwave, etc.)
- A bathroom with bath and overhead shower
- A second shower room
- A comfortable, cosy TV room with DVD player
- A second large living room with coal fire for the winter !
- wifi internet access throughout the house
- Free off-street parking to the rear of the house
- Access to washing machine
We feel that our house is a warm comfortable base for exploring Edinburgh; close enough to all the world famous attractions that the city has to offer, while also having the advantage of being right in the middle of one of its most distinctive and vibrant areas. We look forward to welcoming guests and helping them enjoy their stay in this great city.

This is a beautiful house located within an easy bus or walk to the centre of Edinburgh. The flat is exactly as described, and the pictures don't do the lounge justice! David was very welcoming and an easy text away for any questions. Thank you so much for our stay-your home will be first on our list for any future Edinburgh stays!!
