Come stay in a lovely flat just 15 minutes' walk from the Royal Mile! A great, central place to rest and recover after exploring this magic city. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers.

The space

The first thing that attracted me to the flat was that the windows let in so much light and being on the first floor means a great view of the sky.

Living room: this really is a room for living! There are two sofas for relaxing; an extendible table and chairs by the window for meals with a view; architectural details such as a fireplace and an Edinburgh press (a built-in shelf); and speakers to hook up your music player to.

Bedroom: the bedroom has been kept uncluttered to create a space optimal for resting. There is a large double bed (sleeps 2), a gorgeous old wardrobe and a dresser. The big window overlooks the quiet cul-de-sac street. The black-out curtains are essential in a city this far north (at the height of summer we don’t get much darkness).

Kitchen: fully equipped with cooker, oven, fridge, washing machine, kettle and toaster. I'm a foodie - please help yourself to my range of spices and condiments if you decide to cook up a feast!

Bathroom: a big bathroom by Edinburgh standards, this one has a shower over the bath.

Toilet: a separate toilet (with a basin) means that it is just so much easier to get ready and get out to explore the city!

Guest access

Standard check-in is after 4pm but there is a lot of flexibility in this so please just ask!

I am letting my flat in its entirety: comfy living room, well equipped kitchen, airy bedroom with a large double bed, bathroom and separate toilet.

There is also a shared back terrace which guests are welcome to use.

There is free, unrestricted, on-street parking.

Interaction with guests

Myself or my girlfriend (Helene) will always meet and greet our guests at the flat, to show you around and answer any questions you might have. The flat is our home so we really do know the area – feel free to ask us anything!

Other things to note

Free parking!

The flat is on the first floor with one flight of stairs.

Phil was very communicative and helpful in making our weekend stay in Edinburgh as enjoyable and smooth as possible. He's a really nice guy. His flat is well designed with a nice character/feel, within close proximity to the Old Town (around a 15min walk?). Recommended.

We stayed in Phil's place for 3 whole weeks. It was fantastic to have separate room for each the lounge room, the bedroom, the bathroom and the toilet. The kitchette was the perfect size, and had everything we needed, including the washing machine and detergents! The flat was perfect, I would highly recommend it instead of a tiny hotel room. The flat was also close walking distance to the Royal Mile, and lovely a scenic walk to Princes St. There are buses to take you everywhere if you didn't want to walk. Phil is a great host, and was very reliable and efficient when we had to contact him. He let us check in several hours early... and even posted to us an item that was accidentally left behind in the flat to England! Phil is an exceptional host and I highly recommend his flat for accommodation when staying in Edinburgh.

Phil's apartment had everything we needed and is within walking distance of all kinds of places of attraction, as well as restaurants and bars. The apartment itself stays and a very comfortable temperature and is spacious in all areas. Although we didn't meet Phil, he is very good at communicatng and organized one of his friends to check us in who was very friendly and helpful. Would recommend 100%.

Phil's place was great. I stayed for 6-weeks and don't have a bad thing to say about the flat. It is in a great location near shops and restaurants and is within walking distance to almost anywhere in the city. I highly recommend Phil's place and would certainly stay again.
