My ground floor, spacious and bright apartment puts a contemporary twist on Georgian style. Located in the heart of the famous New Town, 10 minutes walk from Princes Street and the rail station, this is the perfect location to explore Edinburgh from.

Unlimited, super-fast WiFi broadband is available throughout the apartment.

The space

It's filled with light and spacious for a one bedroom apartment.

It's filled with fun things that i have collected over the years, so it comes with bags of my personality!

It's quiet - especially the bedroom which is located at the rear.

I like cooking, so the kitchen is well-equipped.

I offer a breakfast pack delivery service - fresh croissant and OJ with yogurt and compote and Nespresso pods for the coffee machine. Just ask for more detail and prices if you are interested in this.

Bring your tunes - there is a nice Sony bluetooth speaker to connect with!

Guest access

Access all areas - I keep the cellar and a filing cabinet in the bedroom locked for my own bits and pieces though.

Interaction with guests

On arrival I am happy to provide local info and recommendations that fit with your plans and timing - just ask.

I am available to help answer your queries during your stay, but i also work full time, so within reason!

Other things to note

Please note my TV works via the internet so you can view BBC iPlayer/Netflix/Amazon content only.

The bed is a standard double i.e. 4 feet 6 inches wide and 6 feet 3 inches long (137 x 190 cm).

The bed will be made up ready for your arrival including 4 feather pillows, a duvet and a warm throw. An allergy free pillow and a hot water bottle can be found in the chest of drawers.

I supply two large towels, a hand towel, a dish towel and a bath mat for each booking.

This apartment is really special and in a superb neighbourhood. Couldn't fault the host Steven who was very courteous and informative about local places to eat and things to see and do. The property is a real gem.

Great flat in a great location for the New Town, Stockbridge and the Princes Street areas. Roomy & light flat which is quiet at night. Has everything you need for a very comfortable stay. Steve is a great host and it was a pleasure to meet him on check in. We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend the flat to others.

Great place in a great location - definitely recommended. The flat was as described and proved a great base from which to explore Edinburgh. The old and new towns were within easy walking distance and a delight to wander through. Plenty of local shops and restaurants just around the corner. Though we didn't manage to meet, Steven was very helpful, friendly and accommodating. Communication was very good. We're looking forward to a return visit!

Steven User ProfileSteven is a superhost.

Country boy in city skin - highly gregarious and passionate about Edinburgh.

I love my partner Tim, my family, my bike, swimming, early mornings and walking my Great Dane Indigo. I also really like porridge and making curries, pottering in the garden, charity shops and sale shopping for groovy clothes.

I have a really good feel for what is hot and what is not in Edinburgh for 40 somethings - particularly food, galleries, coffee shops, bakeries, record stores, live music venues, city centre walks, parks, views, good places to drink wine and cocktails and good places to eat street food or to eat without a reservation.

I work for a design consultancy and therefore aesthetic things are very important to me, I hate faddish and impractical things though and try to keep things as simple as possible. I like nothing better than a train journey with a box fresh copy of Elle Decor!

I have used Airbnb for Euro city breaks and have always loved the local insights that you get from good hosts - that is what I want to make sure my guests get from me in Edinburgh.
