Delightful City Centre Main-Door Flat - Bright And Sunny With Private Basement Courtyard.

Tranquillity Amidst Edinburgh's Georgian Splendour - Lovely 5 Minute Walk To All Amenities.

Sleeps 2 (1 Bedroom)

The space

Warmly lit by a floor-standing lamp, supplemented by reading lights within easy reach over the lovely Kingsize (5ft/152cm) bed. A huge built-in wardrobe with three mirrored doors provides great storage & hanging space, and the room is a short hop from the bathroom.

The tiled bathroom features a full-width walk-in shower with powerful fixed & hand-held shower heads, A modern basin offers instant hot water, set against a full-height/full-length mirrored wall. The WC and heated towel radiator complete the picture.

The front door leads directly to the living room, meaning it enjoys a natural flow to/from the private courtyard. Seating is comfortable and tables are plentiful. Warm lighting highlights walls hung with pictures, and the sash window has working shutters.

Clean & modern with wooden worktops and light flooding in through two sash windows, which open and link to the courtyard. Masses of drawers/cupboards and fully equipped - gas hob, electric fan-oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge with freezer compartment.

A modern automatic washer/dryer operates quietly behind a closed door off the main living room. This walk-in area also provides a wealth of storage and worktop space for associated items.

The private basement courtyard enjoys the morning sun and comes equipped with a table and two chairs. It isn't naturally overlooked, but the three sash windows from the flat itself open wide onto it, meaning that those inside aren't isolated from those inside.
The street above is inherently quiet meaning that this idyllic undisturbed space is a huge asset to the property and will enhance summer visits. Perfect for al-fresco breakfasting or evening drinks.

On your arrival the property will be set up with fresh bed linen, towels and dish towels. You can wash & dry anything easily any time, but for longer stays extra linen can easily be provided by prior arrangement.

Sadly the age of the property and the basement location mean that access will be unsuitable for some. These factors are regrettable, but are outside the scope of any adaption we could do.

Such a great place to stay in Edinburgh. The apartment really is in the perfect location; 5min walk down into Stockbridge and 10mins over to George Street and Princes Street for the restaurants and shops. The street is really quiet and the apartment is a great size for two people. The shower was hot and powerful and all the joining/leaving instructions were easy to follow. The welcome hamper was a lovely touch and the apartment is exactly like the photos if not better. Weng and Martin were on hand for any advice we needed and were very friendly and helpful. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment. Jess & Stew

One of the best airbnb apartments I have stayed in. The apartment was lovely and centrally located, within walking distance to the new town pubs and restaurants. The kitchen was very well equipped and we were welcomed by a complimentary hamper of food and drink which were very appreciated.

Being only a 10-20 minute walk from the hustle and bustle of Edinburgh, with coffee shops and bus stops close by, it's hard to imagine a more perfectly located apartment for exploring the city. The apartment itself is fantastic. It is beautifully decorated, well equipped and the welcome hamper was a lovely touch. Weng and Martin were very accommodating throughout our stay and went above and beyond to ensure we felt at home. Thank you both, and we will definitely be visiting again soon!

My husband and I had a wonderful time in Edinburgh celebrating my son's graduation. The flat was perfect in every way and this made our time in Edinburgh really special. When we arrived at the flat the lamps had been turned on and the heating was on making it feel very welcoming and homely. The wine, bread, milk, jam, butter and cereal were all greatly appreciated. The street is elegant and peaceful and only a 10 mins walk from the hustle and bustle of Edinburgh city centre. Thank you so much for being such wonderful hosts and we are really looking forward to staying in the flat again very soon.

Martin and Weng made arrival very easy by providing information on how to retrieve keys prior to arrival. The location of the flat was fantastic as it is close enough to the major attractions of the city while still being on a calm and quiet street. The flat itself had everything we could have wanted and was one of if not the cleanest Airbnb flat we have ever stayed in. I would heartily recommend considering Martin and Weng's flat if you are looking to travel in Edinburgh.
