The space
Hello wonderful guests!

Ensuring you feel welcome and comfortable in these challenging coronavirus times is my highest priority as a host.

My cleaning team are deep cleaning and sanitising my property between guest stays per government guidelines. Paying extra attention to high touch surfaces in particular, including keys. My home is perfect if you are required to self-isolate. Check-in is available 24/7 via lockbox for zero human contact.

I know how important it is to have all you need when travelling. Tea, Coffee and Herbal Teas are readily available. I provide extra cleaning products and soap for your comfort.
Netflix is available in the living room and the main bedroom and I have ensured high-speed Wi-Fi (100Mbps fibre with the latest router technology 802.11ac) is available for you to work remotely with ease or keep the family connected.

I hope to host you soon and still make your stay in Edinburgh a memorable one.

Elliott

A light, sunny apartment on the fourth (top) floor of a modern Edinburgh apartment situated off the vibrant Leith Walk area of Edinburgh.

You will enjoy the ENTIRE self-catering apartment to yourself, which is fully equipped and has been recently refurbished. I can accommodate up to 5 people (I can also provide a travel cot on request).

The apartment benefits from a fully equipped kitchen with all the essentials you need plus much more! There is a bathroom with a large bath and shower. Both of the bedrooms consist of a super comfortable double bed with a new memory foam mattress, large wardrobe and television for your entertainment, along with dimmer switches to set the light just right and USB mains sockets for easy charging of your devices.

To the rear of the building, there is a well maintained, shared garden area and Pilrig Park, ready for you to laze about in during those lovely sunny Edinburgh days.

With your stay at my apartment, you will be welcomed by tea and coffee (instant and fresh) along with washing detergent should you wish to use the washing machine. Quality fresh bed linen and towels are also provided for each guest.

The apartment also benefits from:

-Free unlimited and speedy WIFI (100 Mbps)

-Large Flat Screen TV with AppleTV for watching Netflix (don't worry, Netflix is already logged in and ready for you to watch)

-Flat Screen Smart TV with Netflix in the main bedroom

-Power Shower and bath

-Central heating - with a Nest Thermostat for use with iPhone or Android devices so you can adjust the temperature remotely

-Oven, Gas hobs, fridge/freezer, kettle, toaster, washer/dryer

-Extendable dining table

-Hairdryer

-Iron and ironing board

-FREE off street private parking

-An external security camera

Check in time is from 3pm and check out is anytime before 11am. Unfortunately I am unable to store luggage between guest stays. The great news is that you can use Stasher (Stasher dot com) to store your luggage nearby cheaply and securely.

I may be able to accommodate a later check out than 11am, so please just ask and I will do my best.

***Please note, a security deposit is included in your booking amount which is held by Airbnb. It will only be used in extreme circumstances where damage or loss has occurred - This will be automatically refunded by Airbnb upon check out - I hope that doesn't put you off booking my lovely place*** :-)

The apartment is 1.5 miles from the city centre and is served by a number of buses. All of the following buses can be taken from right outside the apartment - 10, 12, 14, 16, 22, 25 to name a few, going into the city centre and take around 10 minutes (To Princes Street). N22, N16 and N7 fast, frequent and safe Night buses also run directly outside the apartment so you will find it very easy to get around at any time of day.

Guest access
The entire flat to yourself and access to the rear garden spaces. There is a key box outside the apartment for 24/7 easy access at your convenience.

Other things to note
Check in is anytime from 3pm and check out anytime before 11am.

Please note there are stairs and no lift available.

I require the full names of each guest due to stay within my apartment.

An external security camera monitors the front door.

***Please be aware of the noise being made when entering or leaving the apartment - especially with luggage, as this may disturb my neighbours - and we wouldn't want that now, would we!?*** :-)

There is a small crack in the bathroom sink and two iron marks on the carpets, but this shouldn't affect your stay in my lovely home.

FAQ's

1. Q: Can I park my car outside the apartment before or after my stay?

A: I would love to be able to do this, however, as guests may be using the parking permit. I will provide suggestions for where to park without restrictions, directly next to the apartment which are 30 seconds to a minute walk away.

2. Q: Can I park a van or large car in your parking space?

A: You sure can! There's plenty of space for a van or large car. The off-street parking is unallocated and abundant. Just make sure you display the parking permit I give you and don't park on double yellow lines.

3. Q: Can I store my luggage before or after my stay?

A: Unfortunately, I am unable to accommodate luggage before or after your stay. There is, however, a great service called Stasher which will allow you to store your luggage conveniently for a small fee. If I have no other guests checking in/out, I'm more than happy for you to store luggage for free. Please check my listing availability here: https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/18702121 or above. If the day before or after your check-in or out is available, my answer will usually be yes. :-)

If not, I'd highly recommend Stasher dot com where you can also find secure left luggage facilities around Edinburgh.

4. Q: How far away is your apartment from the town centre?

A: 15-25 minute walk (I walk fast). 7-12 minute bus ride or 5-8 minute drive to get to the east end of Princes St/Edinburgh Waverley Train Station. You can look up Pizza Hut on Leith Walk to get a good indication of where the apartment is located.

5. Q: Can I do my laundry at your apartment?

A: Yes, absolutely! There is a washer/dryer in the kitchen, along with washing detergent below the kitchen sink ready for you to use. You will find instructions on how to use it in the Guest Information I send before check-in.

6. Q: Is your apartment available for additional dates? Can I extend my stay?

A: I'd love you to stay longer! If the apartment is available on Airbnb, then it's available for you to extend.

If you are extending without checking out, I will be happy to extend your stay and no additional cleaning fee will be required (the additional cleaning fee will be applicable if you are checking out and then returning).
