About this listing

Our flat is a spacious two bedroom modern apartment overlooking Arthur's seat and convenient for all Edinburgh city centre attractions and amenities. It is a cosy, clean, newly redecorated space with everything you would need to enjoy your time in our city. Both bedrooms have a double bed, drawer space and wardrobes. All bedlinen and towels will be provided. The kitchen is fully equipped and the living room has TV, freeview and a DVD player with a selection of DVDs.

The space

Our apartment is an owner maintained comfortable first floor apartment overlooking Arthur's seat and Holyrood Park, where Holyrood Palace (open to the public and offering a pleasant couple of hours walk round )is situated, a few minutes walk away. There is a lift and secure underground parking with your own designated space (no. 3).

The apartment is bright and sunny with double glazing, which blocks out any city noise for a quiet nights sleep, central heating and lots of hot water. There is a bath to relax in and a powerful overhead shower.
The open plan living room/dining room with a table and chairs to seat four adults, has two comfortable sofas, a large coffee table, TV, free view and DVD. The apartment is stocked with a selection of DVDs, books, games and information leaflets on city attractions.

The modern kitchen has a four zone electric hob, oven and grill with extractor fan. There is also a microwave, kettle, toaster, and sandwich maker. The kitchen is also equipped with fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer. Washing powder, dishwasher tablets and tea towels will be provided.

Everything needed to prepare anything from a quick snack to a full, several course meal is available from wooden spoons to serving dishes and there is a full set of beautiful white crockery and stainless steel cutlery as well as tumblers, and wine glasses.

The bedrooms both have fitted wardrobes and are furnished with oak beds, new deep, luxury mattresses, pillows and beautiful coordinated bed linen. Each room has a mirror, hairdryer and coat hangers as well as ample drawer and shelf space.

The secure underground car parking is accessed through an automatic barrier operated by a key fob.

Guest access

You will have the entire apartment to yourself with your own set of keys and it will be your own comfortable, private space to relax in while you enjoy your visit to our beautiful city.

We will contact you before your visit to give directions and the postcode if you're using Satnav.

From the airport, take the Airport bus no 35, which stops on London Road at its junction with Easter Road and the apartment is a 5 min walk. The no 100 bus from the airport is quicker, slightly more expensive but stops further away at Waverley Bridge. This option gives you the opportunity to walk the mile to the apartment (along Waterloo Place and Regent road or down Leith Street and along London road) and get a feel for the city or get a bus (from nearby Princes Street) or a taxi. You can also take the tram from the airport to its final stop at York Place near the Playhouse theatre and either catch a bus (no 26 or 44) or walk along London Road for 20 mins to reach the apartment.

If you're arriving by train, directions are the same as from Waverly bridge, a taxi will cost around £5 and there is a baggage storage area at the station if required).

Interaction with guests

Either Pete or I ( on the odd occasion it may be a friend of ours) will meet you at the apartment to welcome you, hand over the keys, show you around the apartment and answer any questions you may have. At the end of your stay, just lock the door and pop the keys through the letterbox.

Other things to note

To get more hot water, press the boost button (on the wall to the right of the kitchen sink) once twice or three times. This will keep the water heating while your showering, providing enough hot water for everyone.

A lovely, spotlessly clean apartment, with all the facilities you could possibly need or want. Close to shops and supermarket, easy walking distance into the city centre and all the attractions therein. Very attentive host.

This is a great place to book if you want a relaxed exploration of Edinburgh. Alison is a great host, always reachable and she cares for her guests. The flat feels more like a hotel than anything. Town is close yet far enough to avoid the negative effects of tourist filled streets. Shopping is 2min away and if you come by car the car park is amazingly safe. We will be back!

This apartment is absolutely wonderful! As soon as you walk in you feel welcomed in the bright and warm decor. The apartment is impeccably clean with so many special little touches. The living room was filled with entertainment choices (games, books, trivia) and a large display of brochures of area attractions. The beds are comfortable and cozy. The apartment is located in a quiet neighborhood and it is within a brief walking disrance of public transportation and several restaurants & pubs. Alison is an absolute gem! We had a long travel day and unexpected delays and she was so patient! When we arrived she had wine chilling in the refrigerator and breakfast options for morning. When we did have questions she responded within minutes of our request. I absolutely recommend staying in this apartment and booking with Alison!
