Located on the ground floor of a traditional Edinburgh tenement block, the apartment has all the charm of an old building with all the convenience of a recently-refurbished one. The interior is virtually brand new, offering guests the opportunity to enjoy the entirety of a stunning self-catering apartment equipped with all the mod cons. The apartment is designed to sleep up to six people and there is plenty of space to organise sleeping arrangements as you see fit, while cots are available on request.
You’ll enjoy access to all parts of this stunning property during your stay, including the communal garden at the rear. The garden is a great place to relax after a day of pounding the city’s pavements – just remember it’s shared with all of the other residents of the building as well. With that in mind, keeping late-night noise to a minimum and treating the property and its contents with care and respect would be much appreciated.
Interior layout With its white ceramic, polished brickwork and clean edges, the bathroom is a masterclass in chic contemporary design. It’s not just a pretty face, however – the newly-fitted Power Shower combines performance and panache above the spacious bath, while towels and linen are provided for all guests. Meanwhile, the generously-proportioned kitchen is equipped with a fridge/freezer, oven, hob, microwave, washing machine, kettle and toaster, as well as all the pots, pans, crockery and cutlery you’ll need to cook up a storm.
Elsewhere, the living/dining area comes with a dining table for four, an incredibly comfy couch and partnering armchair. The sizable Smart TV is Wi-Fi-ready, meaning you can watch Netflix, YouTube or any other streaming service on it, while there are more than 90 cable channels to choose from as well. There is high-speed Wi-Fi for those who need to stay connected, while the efficient central heating system will keep you warm whatever the Scottish climate throws at you.
Both bedrooms are light and airy with plenty of space, allowing you room to really make yourself feel at home. The first bedroom offers a double bed, while the second comes equipped with two zip-and-link beds which can be used as either two singles or a double. All beds are fitted with quality pocket-spring mattresses for a comfortable sleep. There is ample storage space underneath the beds and in the furniture provided, while there are also two full-size electric airbeds included for extra guests. An iron and ironing board are also provided.
Exterior Ideally located in the thriving neighbourhood of Leith, this spacious modern apartment benefits from a recent refurbishment, superb facilities and free parking. The property is within easy reach of all of Edinburgh’s world-famous visitor attractions, including Princes Street, the Royal Mile and, of course, Edinburgh Castle, while also being far enough away to take advantage of the peace and tranquility of the surrounding residential area.
For those driving, there are free parking spots on the street right in front of the apartment, while Edinburgh’s excellent public transport system can be accessed via the bus stop on the street outside as well. Thanks to its convenient location, quirky décor and impeccable facilities, this is the ideal choice for families, groups of friends or other visitors looking to take advantage of everything Edinburgh has to offer.
At just 1.5 miles from Waverley Train Station, the apartment is close enough to allow easy access to the city centre while being far enough away to escape the hubbub at the day’s end. On foot, all of the city’s major attractions are within 30 minutes’ reach, while there are a number of buses which can take you into town in a fraction of that time, all operating on a regular and reliable schedule within easy reach of your front door.
In the other direction, the apartment is just a stone’s throw from the Water of Leith and the Shore, a charming waterfront area that is packed with vibrant bars and restaurants serving top-quality local produce. Indeed, there are two Michelin star restaurants within a short walk of your doorstep! There are also plenty of supermarkets, stores and café nearby as well. For those who wish to explore further afield, the street in front of the apartment does not charge for parking, saving on a potentially huge expense in Edinburgh
