Lovely two bedroom flat in an urban area within 5 min walk from the vibrant Leith Shore and a 10 min bus ride or 30 min walk to the beautiful Edinburgh city centre.

The space

Lovely two bedroom flat in an urban area within 5 min walk from the vibrant Leith Shore and a 10 min bus ride or 30 min walk to the beautiful Edinburgh city centre.

My home is a lovely Victorian flat full of charm and character minutes walk to the Shore, close to local amenities and a short bus ride to the city centre. The flat can be accessed from the airport and train stations via a direct bus. Free on street parking is also available if you arrive by car. I will prepare directions once your booking is confirmed.

The property comprises of a large bedroom with a double bed, a second bedroom with a small double bed, living room which retains some of the old charm and character, a small but fully fitted kitchen and bathroom. You will have access to the whole flat during your stay.

The flat can host 4 people as there are two bedrooms (when let to more than 2 people) but the second bedroom is not very big and you might feel cosy. Please take this into consideration and look at the photos, including the one that contains the flat layout, to get a feel for the size before booking. The size of the flat is more suitable for a family (2 adults + 2 children) or 3 adults.

Either myself or Mike will meet you at the flat and check you in and I will be available by phone or Airbnb messaging system during your stay.

The flat is situated in the up and coming vibrant area of Leith within easy reach of the town centre and the sandy beach of Portobelo. The area has seen a lot of recent redevelopment investment and it is popular with young professionals.

The building entrance is located on a well lit main road. However the main bedroom offers quiet views of Edinburgh Castle. In the summer you can enjoy the fireworks display during the Tattoo shows.

The redeveloped Leith docklands offer a great choice when it comes to bars and restaurants. The most popular tourist attraction in Leith is the Royal Yacht Britannia.

I have been living in Edinburgh for over three years and I am happy to offer recommendations on things to do and places to go if needed. There are also a number of tourist leaflets, brochures and a guidebook along with a street map of the city centre available in the flat.

Edinburgh has an excellent public transport network and there are a number of bus stops by the flat to connect you to different areas of the city. A bus map is available on the Lothian Buses website and I have printed copies in the flat.

Edinburgh is a small enough city to explore on foot. You will find a map of the city centre in the flat. The Edinburgh Castle and the monuments on Calton Hill are visible from the main bedroom window and you can reach the city centre in less than 30 min if you walk.

The flat is situated on a lively high street and although some nights can be quiet there is still your average inner city noise pollution. The main bedroom faces the back of the building and overlooks the Edinburgh Castle. This will be quiet but the smaller bedroom that faces the street will be exposed to the expected levels of city noise.

Some of the neighbours on my floor smoke but my front door is well sealed and the flat has a strict no smoking policy as I have an allergy.

This is a first floor flat. There is no lift available but the staircase is wide and comfortable for taking up any luggage.

Guest access

You will have access to the whole flat during your stay.

The stairwell as with old tenement flats is clean but not the most glamorous so don't be put off by this when you arrive. The flat is loved and very well looked after.

Super, quiet and very comfortable apartment which is only a 10 minute bus ride or 30 minute walk to Princes Street. Located only 10 minutes walk from the amenities at Ocean Terminal, including the Royal Yacht Britannia, it is also only an hour or so drive from the beautiful Fife coastal villages. Also ideally placed for any budding artists being only a 5 minutes walk from the Leith School of Art. We do not hesitate in recommending Anamarie and Mike's apartment for your visit to Edinburgh.

Anamaria & Mike provided clear and concise directions to the apartment and we were welcomed by Mike, who gave us additional tips and info. The apartment is tastefully decorated and has a very homely feel. Everything about it suited us perfectly. It is pet-friendly, located close to our family and Edinburgh has a great transport system so there was never a real need to use the car. When we plan our next visit we will be searching to see if the apartment is available again

Really enjoyed our stay here, the flat was lovely with little extras available. The addition of the Christmas trees really made our weekend away feel homely! We had a great time in Edinburgh with friends, definitely coming back to visit the castle and everything else we didn't get chance to do! Communication with Anamaria was great and we would recommend this place to others. Thanks again, Simon, Hayley, Emily and Alex from Hull!

Anamaria and Mike were great hosts. The flat was lovely and homely, and was a joy to come back to after long days at the Festival! It is well placed as we had access to everything in Leith as well as in the city centre. Communicating with Anamaria and Mike was incredibly easy, which made the planning of our trip easier, and more enjoyable. Thanks for a great weekend!

We absolutely enjoyed Anamaria’s and Mike’s flat. That was homely and included everything you need if traveling with small family (1 bigger + 1 small bedroom). Quiet area with good connections to town – as well possible nice 30 min walk to center. In small bedroom you can hear buses and traffic lights signals on morning, but not very disturbing – bigger bedroom is very quiet. Hosts are really pleasant and helpful if needed! With great thanks!
