About this listing

Spacious double room available in a 2 bed flat on Leith Walk.

Newly bought/decorated flat (photos to follow) on Leith Walk, 10 minutes walk from Princes Street with regular buses to all Festival venues. Perfect let for anyone visiting in August

The space

I have just bought the flat and have spent the last month decorating it (photos will be up shortly). I have done enough that I feel I can take August off to relax and this means there is my spare room lying empty during the Festival.

The flat is a 10 minute walk from Princes Street and 5/10 minutes from The Shore, so perfect for immersing yourself in the Festival areas or completely escaping them if you need a break!

The flat is sharing with me and my 4 month old kitten. He's a very friendly, chilled out little guy who just likes attention but won't cause any bother.

Guest access

There is a large kitchen/dining room, a large living room and shared bathroom. You are welcome to make yourselves at home and enjoy the space.

Interaction with guests

I mainly work from home, so I will be around to welcome you as you arrive and I'll always be around or easy to contact if you need anything.

Frederica was a great host! We spend two nights at her flat. The bed was comfy and she provided us with shampoo and all sorts of other stuff including pills against allergies to cats and tasty breakfast. Rufus, her cat is incredibly cute! The flat is pretty and easy to reach from the city and even by foot no big deal. I would highly recommend to stay with Frederica.

I stayed at Frederica's room the first weekend of the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland. The apartment is located very central on Leith Walk and you can easily walk to any famous tourist attraction in Edinburgh from her place. The apartment was very nice as well as the room. Throughout the weekend, Frederica was extremely helpful guiding us to the most popular attractions in Edinburgh as well as bars, comedy clubs and restaurants. Frederica made us feel at home, providing coffee and breakfast as well as a cosy atmosphere. Her cat Rufus was also a friendly creature to encounter. I would recommend anyone going to Edinburgh to stay at Frederica's place and I hope to see her again sometime.

Frederica a été absolument charmante : elle nous a attendus alors que nous étions en retard sur l'horaire fixé, elle met à notre disposition du linge du toilette, différents produits qui dépannent bien quand on les a oubliés (brosse à dents, shampooing, aspirine, etc...), son chat Rufus est adorable et, détail non négligeable, son appartement n'est vraiment pas loin du centre d'Edimbourg (d'ailleurs la rue est un peu bruyante pour ceux qui ont le sommeil léger). Je recommande vraiment et je remercie encore Frederica de son accueil !

I work for an English Language School recruiting kids who come to the UK to study English. This means I spend about 3 months of the year travelling and the rest of the time enjoying life up here in Edinburgh.

I'm hoping that some lovely people will still be looking for somewhere to stay during August in Edinburgh, with whom I can share my knowledge both cultural and food and drink related!
