With high ceilings and a big bay window, our bright and spacious traditional flat is situated in the heart of the city centre. Perfect for a stroll round the spectacular sights of Calton Hill, Holyrood Park and Arthur's Seat, or a visit to the Palace of Holyrood, the Scottish Parliament, the Royal Mile or Grassmarket. Venture into lively Leith for cool bars, Broughton and New Town for night-life and Stockbridge for farmers' markets and cosy cafes. It's all only a hop and a skip away.

The space

Stylishly decorated and cosy throughout, it's the ideal place to unwind after a day out and about. Being on the first floor, it's easy to get to but there are a few steps. It's got a double bedroom to the rear, a spacious kitchen with dining table and breakfast bar, bathroom, hall and large living room.

Guest access

You'll have access to the whole flat, with the exception of one large walk-in cupboard where we'll keep most of our stuff. It is our home, so we won't be able to clear everything out for you, but there will be space for storage in our wardrobe in the bedroom.

The kitchen will be stocked with all the bits and bobs that you'll need to cook, and you're welcome to use the washing machine or dishwasher.

The bathroom has a bath and a shower, which comes straight from the boiler so it's nice and warm and strong.

In the living room you'll be able to use the flatscreen TV with Virgin Media cable, Netflix, iPlayer etc. and we've got fast broadband too.

Interaction with guests

We'll usually be away when the flat is free, but we will be able to help out with any questions or queries you might have about the flat or local area over the phone or email, whatever time it may be.

We loved everything about this beautiful apartment. The space is much larger than we had imagined, with big bright rooms, gorgeous furnishings, very comfortable bed, fully equipped kitchen, the most perfect home from home. The area is quiet and convenient for town and we will definitely stay here again if we ever come back to Edinburgh. Thank you so much Kate, we had a wonderful time here!

Kate's flat was fantastic - a beautiful example of an Edinburgh tenement! Her flexibility and good communication about check-in and out times really made our trip much easier and better. I agree with one of the other reviewers - probably the best air bnb experience we have had !

Probably our best airbnb experience so far. We found Kate to be very accommodating with the check out time and easy to communicate with. The apartment exceeded our expectations, we thought the photos didn't do it justice, was even better looking in real life and very comfortable and tastefully decorated. The location was decent, we were able to walk everywhere central, some nice local bars too. We will definitely be recommending and stay here again if it is available.

We had a great stay at Kate's apartment, the house was lovely and our host made us feel extremely welcome. The place was also situated very conveniently, being in walking distance of both the New and Old town. Would definitely stay again.

The flat was exactly as described: cosy, spacious, stylish and in a great location. The host was very accommodating with flexible check in and out times. It was spotlessly clean on arrival and even the heating was on! I found the flat perfect for a weekend in Edinburgh and, although I was by myself, it would be a lovely place for a stay for two as well. I'll definitely be checking to see if this flat is available the next time I come to Edinburgh.
