Guests often search for this popular amenity

A modern stylish haven - perfect for a couple who want an apartment that's peaceful, light and beautifully appointed, a short bus ride or walk to the City Centre and in a waterfront area with plentiful restaurants, bars and coffee houses.

A dedicated parking space, airport pick-up and the option of a walking tour of the city and exploration of Scotland by car - you only have to ask.

The space
A beautiful south-facing, ground floor apartment, decorated in fresh bright colors to reflect the owner's positive outlook on life with access to his music selection, large screen TV, fully functioning office with printer, a small library and for those that like to pluck the strings a selection of high range guitars. In the bedroom and living room are French windows - that swathe the apartment in light throughout the afternoon. Despite its closeness to the action the flat offers a peaceful retreat but, with access to shops, restaurants (Michelin Starred to Bistro style), bars, attractions and a range of stylish coffee houses.

Where you’ll be

Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom

Edinburgh's Leith area (described by one writer as Scotland's Greenwich Village) has become one of the city's most coveted places in the city to work, rest and play. In its waterfront setting, Leith offers something magical - from its Michelin Starred restaurants to its array of stylish bistros, bars and coffee houses. Whether you want to stroll along the Water of Leith and through Edinburgh heartlands, sip a cocktail outside the Malmaison Hotel or eat and drink in one of a plethora of celebrated eateries, Leith offers relaxation, easy friendship, shopping and great views. Once a town in its own right, Leith retains a strong independent spirit - it's a welcoming area with an air of wonderful informality about it. That's why it has become a magnet to people looking to settle in the City. The apartment is stone's throw from Scotland's leading tourist attraction, Royal Yacht Britannia and within easy reach of all you need from local shops.

I am a motivational speaker and a former business owner with a life that has taken many unexpected twists and turns - from homelessness to award-winning entrepreneur it has been an extraordinary journey. My mission in life is to ensure that each child born has every opportunity to fully exploit their (often hidden) talents. That means rebalancing economies and ending once and for all the immoral differences between the very rich and the very poor. I speak and write on the topic. I am also fiercely proud of my city and country. I know Edinburgh inside out and am very willing to lead guests on a walking tour of the city £30 per person. The apartment I let, is my home and I move out for the duration of your stay. It's a financial necessity these days but, I love welcoming and hosting people from all over the world and don't care what your race, religion or sexual orientation is. You are as they say in Scotland "all Jock Tamson's bairns."
