About this listing
This wonderfully bright and spacious flat is situated in a vibrant part of Edinburgh - only a short walk from Princes Street with its great selection of bars, restaurants and shops. Calton Hill is very close by, worth the climb for the beautiful panoramic views of Edinburgh!
Charming and huge 1 bed apartment with quaint features throughout giving a truly 'home away from home' Airbnb feel. With magnificent 10 ft high ceilings, all the rooms are bright and airy. The bedroom is very quiet, ideal for a good nights sleep. The stylish kitchen is fully equipped with a stunning view. This flat is a typical late Victorian, Edinburgh tenement, situated on a on a broad, tree-lined street giving it a peaceful atmosphere despite the proximity to the city centre.
The flat is my home and has lots of pictures and art on the walls. I also have a lot of books, which guests are welcome to borrow!
There's a small park at the bottom of the street and some great local cafes nearby.
Guests will have access to the entire property during their stay.
Interaction with guests
Edinburgh is amazing. You may never want to leave the city. If you do however, we can put you in touch with both golf & touring companies should you wish to visit eg St Andrews, Muirfield, Gullane, Stirling Castle, whisky distillery tours etc.
Other things to note
The flat is not suitable for guests with mobility issues because there is not a lift.
The property is professionally cleaned and the linen and towels of the highest hotel quality will be provided.
All guests are also privileged to use my membership to the 'Scottish Malt Whisky Society', which contains the finest Whisky bar and place to buy whisky in Edinburgh... no questions asked. You will also receive a free dram of whisky!
I want guests to be relaxed and comfortable in the flat, just treat it with care. The flat is a no smoking zone as is the stairwell. Please respect the neighbours, and do not make significant noise or play loud music after 10pm and please, no parties.

I'm an Irishman in Edinburgh and I work in theatre and dance.
I lived for many years in London before moving here eight years ago.
I have lots of interests including theatre, cinema, current affairs, swimming, walking and cycling.
I enjoy cooking also.
I'm fairly new to hosting on Airbnb so I'm light on house rules so far.
All that I ask is that you treat my home with respect while you enjoy it.
All the best,
