Family Seaside Apartment for 6 adults+kids
A top floor apartment on Portobello Beach, Edinburgh's seaside resort. Our apartment has beautiful sea-views of the beach and promenade from all the windows, as well as views of Arthur's Seat. A comfortable family home, with 3 bedrooms, large kitchen/ dining room and living room with fire-place, you can enjoy the best of all the Scottish weather. Central Edinburgh is 5 miles away and easily reached by bus or train. Beach toys and bike come with the flat

The space
Our self-catering family apartment is excellent for families and can host 6 adults. We are less than 50m from the promenade and beach. The beach is a popular swimming beach which is good for everyone- from families to serious open water swimmers. As well as being a great place to enjoying a stroll along the prom, Portobello has a local Parkrun, a number of great cafes, pubs and restaurants, children's play parks and a public victorian swimming pool with a sauna. Arthur's Seat and National Trust Properties are only a walk away. Access to the center of Edinburgh is quick and easy via bus or train. NOTE: Access to the apartment is via three flights of stairs and we do not have a lift.

The apartment has three bedrooms including a master bedroom with kingsize bed, a bedroom with a loft queen sized bed and sofa bed underneath, and a child's bedroom with a single high bed and optional single mattress underneath. We also have a travel cot for infants.
The kitchen-dining room, is large with a range double oven and extendable dining table which can sit 8 comfortably. There is a separate scullery with belfast sinks, dishwasher and microwave attached to the kitchen, which has its own special view of the beach to the north.
The living room has two sofas, two armchairs and plenty of other seating options, so that you can enjoy the fireplace. Although there is no TV, we have a LED projector and AppleTV, for cozy evenings watching movies in front of the fire. We also have a huge number of board games and plenty of books for young and old. Firewood can be provided at extra charge.
The central hallway is large and has ample space for coats and boots and leads onto the bathroom with on-demand hot water for either a shower or bath. There is plenty of free on the street parking.

We will provide you with milk, tea/coffee and porridge for you to make your own breakfasts, as well as maps and information about the area. We will also provide children's beach toys (but no sunshade such as an umbrella) and an adult bike for local use.

NOTE: Access to the apartment is via three flights of stairs and we do not have a lift.This is a family home, so we do not take bookings for same sex parties or groups of younger people. Firewood can be provided at extra charge. The second bed room has a high loft bed accessed by a ladder. I will happily provide details of Portobello's New Years Day activities such as the Looney Dook.
