The Joppa Residence
A beautiful, traditional Victorian property, The Joppa Residence is in the heart of the bohemian neighbourhood of Joppa / Portobello – Edinburgh’s Seaside. Just 20 - 25 minutes on the bus from the city centre of Edinburgh, it’s an excellent base from which to explore the city and the surrounding areas of East Lothian. Located on the quiet end of Portobello beach, just a short stroll from all the amenities that Portobello offers, you’ll find an abundance of independent cafes, shops, restaurants, and quirky boutiques. Fancy a morning coffee with fantastic views? With its numerous trendy cafes, look no further than the beach promenade, just a few minutes’ walk from your doorstep. Perfect for a lazy Sunday brunch and a great spot for people-watching. This comfortable property sleeps 4 guests and benefits from a beautiful, private garden with mature plants and flowers - a real sun trap, and a super place to enjoy a taste of alfresco dining.
The bright, airy living room is full of sunshine, with the beach in view from the large bay windows. Traditional touches of high corniced ceilings and a tiled fireplace makes this place ideal to unwind after a long day exploring. Just sit back and relax into the plush leather sofas with a well-earned drink or two and take full advantage of the Freeview TV and free WiFi.
Feeling peckish? The modern galley kitchen comes complete with everything you need to cook up a treat to enjoy in the stylish dining room. Integrated appliances include oven and hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave, washing machine/tumble dryer, and a coffee machine.
When it’s time to retire choose from two elegant, tranquil bedrooms. One with a king-size bed, the other with a pair of twin beds. Both have plentiful guest storage. A slick, contemporary gleaming white shower room with heated towel rail completes this wonderful holiday home.
Joppa is well located to explore the coastal towns and villages of East Lothian. Convenient for Musselburgh Races, Brunton Theatre and the Golf Coast. And with easy access to the Edinburgh city bypass for links to Edinburgh Airport.
