About this listing
You’ll love my place because of the location, the outdoors space, and the views. My place is good for couples, business travellers, families (with kids), big groups, and furry friends (pets).
The area is home to writers Ian Rankin (author of the Inspector Rebus novels), Lin Anderson, Colin Douglas, Alexander McCall Smith (author of the The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency novels) and comedian Dylan Moran.
J.K. Rowling has had her Edinburgh home in Merchiston for many years
The garden apartment is unlike any other you will see on Airbnb. It has extensive mature gardens with plenty of space to play with your kids in a safe environment. No kids..why not have a BBQ and make use of our luxurious garden furniture.
Inside the property you will immediately get the "wow factor" - everything you would expect such as cable tv, wifi, modern kitchen and bathrooms - BUT its within a period apartment with all origional features.
You have access to the whole apartment and gardens.
Also available is two private parking spaces.
Interaction with guests
If you can tell me when you are likely to arrive I will meet you at the apartment and show you around .
If you have any issues - I live one street away and can be at Grays Loan to help in any way. Otherwise I will leave you alone to enjoy a spectacular apartment and gardens.
