A charming well equipped apartment on the outskirts of the City centre. The hosts were extremely helpful easily contactable and allowing us to arrive early and provided an abundance of free food items which just made the settling in brilliant.
The apartment is capable of accommodating four (2xadults and 2x teens) and has all modern amenities from a strong wifi connection to excellent shower and comfortable furnishings. Excellent to collapse on after exploring the City and ascending Arthur's Seat (when it was an unheard of 27C!!)
Though the apartment is on the outskirts of the City centre there are bus stops over the road (nos 21 &25 ) that take you into the heart of the City and act as a tour bus if you sit on the upper level of a double decker! However we also hired a car which made touring outside Edinburgh much easier and then the location of the property comes into its own.
The coastal roads leading from Portobello (Milton Rd) are only a mile away turning left down Sleigh Drive and this will take you through Musselborough, Aberlady and all the way to the delighful beach at North Berwick avoiding any heavy traffic. We spent a whole hot sunny day there crabbing etc
Driving into the City is a doddle compared to the stress of driving into London for sure or even Glasgow even!
There is a Sainsburys supermarket ten mins away by car near Meadowbank which was very handy and a Tesco in the other direction.
The neighbourhood is a very pleasant and quiet area and to be frank we were quite relieved we had booked further out to avoid the heavier traffic noise during the latter days of the 'Fringe' .
Compared to the exorbitant costs down South this was a very reasonable accommodation/holiday made all the better not only by the hosts helpfulness but also the unexpected sunny weather.
