The space

Perfect base for the world-famous Edinburgh International Festival and Hogmanay/New Year celebrations!

15 Duddingston Crescent is a stunning, unique and immaculate 3 bedroom semi-detached house, a few mins walk takes you to Portobello 9 hole golf course and a 10 minutes walk to the beach, with promenade cafés and bars. A small stretch of local shops is a 2 min walk and a large outdoor shopping complex is about five minutes away (by car).

It is approximately 3 miles (7 minutes by car, 15 by bus) to the centre of this stunning city, served by a frequent and excellent bus service (including late night service) with a stop about 20 yards from the front door. Hackney cabs and local cars are readily available. Car parking is also available on site for one car plus more on the side road running alongside the house.

The house has been upgraded and extended to create a contemporary home with quality fittings and fashionable interior throughout. The extensive accommodation is bright and airy with a large open plan kitchen/dining/family room and an impressive double height reception hall. There's also a second lounge/TV room.

The bedrooms are all on the first floor - two have luxurious en-suites and the smaller bedroom has a family bathroom adjacent. The two large rooms have different bed arrangements - one has a queen bed, the other two singles and the other room has bunk beds suitable for adults and children.

Use of a large custom fitted office is also available.

Externally the house is set back from the street with a front garden. To the rear is a large walled south facing garden with off street. When the sun is out it's a glorious place to socialise or find a quiet spot with your book.

My son and I stayed here for a week at the start of spring. Carolyn was such a gracious host, everything we could have asked for. She was out of the country and still responded to every question we had in minutes! We were welcomed by her house manager Kenny, and he dealt with us day to day. Both incredibly kind and informative people. She left us an entire packet about what to do/see in Edinburgh in addition to giving us helpful tips on how to get around. We even arrived to a fully stocked kitchen! Above and beyond service, highly recommend staying in this house, especially if it's your first time in Edinburgh. 10 minutes into the heart of the city. 10 minutes walking distance to the beach. Local supplies right down the street. You will feel comfortable and secure. Thanks again Carolyn for everything!

Carolyn welcomed our group at the door of her amazing home with so much enthusiasm which made us feel very special. She helped us book the trip from Glasgow to avoid delay with the train. She kept in contact before, during and after our stay. Her house is more stunning than from the pictures. The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and modern. The kitchen is completely stocked. The location is perfect to combine city visit or beach combing. Thanks Carolyn for sharing your beautiful home.

We spent 4 days in Carolyn's house in June. The house was the perfect spot for us and a group of friends. Very clean, spacious and decorated with taste. Only 10 mn drive from Edinburgh with a very nice garden! Carolyn is very responsive so no need to worry! I would definitely recommend it!
