A few facts about The Nest:

[Covid-19 update - The Nest is always very clean, but our cleaning company now has additional coronavirus specific protocols in place, and are taking extra steps to clean and sanitise frequently touched surfaces between reservations. Please get in touch with any specific questions.]

- Superfast wifi throughout the flat.
- The yellow bedroom has a king sized (5ft wide) bed with a coombed (sloping) ceiling above the bed.
- The blue bedroom has a superking (6 ft wide) bed.
- Both bedrooms have excellent storage, USB sockets in all the most helpful locations and a good quality hairdryer.
- The living room has seating for 4 and the smart TV connects to the wifi so you can log into Netflix and Amazon Prime to pick up where you left off!
- The compact kitchen with oak surfaces and Belfast sink has all the appliances you should need for your stay including a 7 place setting dishwasher.
- A small utility room hides away a microwave, small freezer and washer/dryer.
- The one bathroom is bright and spacious and features a mixer shower (fixed head) over a bath.

Guest access
The entire flat. It's all yours. There is also a lovely shared garden which is overlooked by The Nest. You are welcome to use the garden but remember we share it with 3 other flats. Please be respectful.

Other things to note
Important things to note.
- Overall size of the flat is approximately 85m2.
- The flat is on the third floor. That's two flights to climb in the communal stair and one more when you enter The Nest.
- Unlike many tenement stairs in Edinburgh, the communal stair is bright and airy with huge windows and even great views! It is also well lit at night.
- The entire flat is in the roof. It is an original Victorian living space so proportions are good, but there are coombed (sloping) ceilings. You will need to watch your head getting into bed in the yellow bedroom.
- Hot water is by combi boiler and heating is controlled using a Hive smart thermostat. Very easy to use.
- We do not have a parking space. Parking is on-street and quite expensive at around £16 per day. Free on-street parking can be found about a 15 minute walk away.
- The flat was recently refurbished for the purpose of holiday letting and so is equipped with a smoke/CO/heat detection system. Doors are 30 minute fire resistant with closers, intumescent strips and smoke seals.
