A traditional Edinburgh New Town flat situated in the sought-after Hillside area. Only 10 minutes walk from Waverley station and Princes Street, 5 minutes walk from the airport tram. This spacious and stylish two-bedroom top floor flat offers a very quiet stay amidst festival venues, and a great choice of non-touristy pubs and restaurants as well as a high number of shops / supermarkets (eg, Tesco).

The space

This is a traditional New Town flat in a quiet area that is yet close to the buzz. The flat was refurbished to a very high standard and is warm throughout the year due to double-glazing and energy efficient radiators.

Guest access

Guests have access to all rooms except a small room where we keep our private and our children's belongings. Our guests can also use our Sonos stereo system allowing them to listen to their own music.

Interaction with guests

It's likely that you won't meet us in person. In this case, our next door neighbours will take care of you.

Other things to note

We, a family of 4, live in this flat permanently and only rent it out when we are away on holidays.

I would definitely recommend staying here, location is great and bed is comfy. Josi was lovely and really helpful, gave us some great tips on where to eat, where to visit and was always easy to contact. Really good stay.

There are Airbnb hosts; and then there are the Airbnb hosts that go above and beyond to make you feel welcome in their home and city. This is Josi and Tom. Their apartment is beautiful, clean, and comfortable; you would be silly not to stay here if it is available. It is accessible by bus and about a 7-10 minute walk from the tram. The neighborhood has a great variety of restaurants and pubs. Josi and Tom have provided a color-coded map of their recommendations in the area; we tried a few and they did not disappoint! The communication with Josi was excellent; she was super responsive and provided us with incredibly helpful information before we arrived. My only regret is that we had to leave before we were able to meet Josi and Tom in person; they seemed like great humans. Would highly recommend their apartment and their company!

Guys, you're too kind. We're really glad you enjoyed our wee home so much! Very touching. Please let us know if you're planning a second visit - it would be great to show you some more pubs and places in person. All the very best! J & T

Josi and Tom are the most nice and kind hosts that we ever had. They were super helpful with all our needs and always willing to help. The apt is amazing, super bright and really cute decorated. The location is amazing because you are 15/20 minutes from the old city, so you still have the quiet side of the city. I love it! 100% recommendable!

Josi and Tom are a really nice couple, and their house is great for exploring the city, as it is very near the centre. We had interesting chats with Tom in the mornings, and we heard him playing the piano ;-) We would stay again if we come back to Edinburgh!
