A lovely, spacious, bright ground floor apartment with two double bedrooms and a child's room with cot (suitable for 0-2 years), on a quiet crescent near Edinburgh's New Town, and the beautiful Botanic Gardens. The flat is ideally located for exploring Edinburgh's old buildings, culture, and also some of its less-known green spaces, such as the Water of Leith and Inverleith Park. The flat is very accessible by Edinburgh standards, with two small steps to the entrance, and a walk-in shower.
This is a ground floor flat, with a private entrance door, a walk-in shower, and only two small external steps, so by Edinburgh standards is highly accessible. There are wooden floors throughout.
There are full cooking facilities - though there are also many great places to eat within a ten minute walk.
It would be ideal for families, older people and couples - and we're particularly keen to host people for an extended stay.
This is our home, and so is fully equipped with everything you might need during your stay. We've used AirBNB many times, and so have a good idea of what is useful to have around. We provide hotel quality linen and our home is professionally cleaned before every visit. Please note, you will need to bring your personal linen if you wish to use the travel cot. There will also be books to browse, and a selection of board games. There is wifi (though no TV).
We are offering a below-market price because this is our home, and so our main aim is to find people who will enjoy and look after it. So please tell us a bit about yourselves - and we are happy to answer any questions you have.
Guests will have access to our private front garden, and the communal back garden.
Interaction with guests
We will not be here, but will leave detailed information for you, and ensure smooth access to the apartment. We will also be contactable via phone or email during your stay.
Other things to note
We have a small dog. She won't be here, and is a poodle-cross (so you won't find dog hair in the flat and there is no 'doggy' smell). However, if you do have any allergies to animals this may not be the best place for you.
