Welcome to Edinburgh, the festival city, all year round. Come and stay in my home which is centrally located off Leith Walk near to all of Edinburgh's key attractions. The flat is a main door, 2 double bedroom property with a back yard and your own private entrance. Situated on the ground floor of a traditional Victorian tenement building (1890) in the trendy neighbourhood of Leith. The property is situated off the main road on a quiet street with free parking, which is rare in Edinburgh. Just around the corner are a good selection of shops including an excellent artisan baker/patisserie and a brilliant independent wine shop. The city centre (Waverley Train Station) is a 30 minute walk or a 5 minute bus trip with buses running every few minutes from the end of my street.
Perfect for a single person, a couple, family or group of friends, the flat is homely and lived in with with a comfortable feel, great to relax in after a day out seeing the city sights. There's a powerful shower over the bath with instant hot water 24/7, the living/kitchen/dining room are very spacious and there's space for 6 people. An excellent place for entertaining over a dinner party!
Fully equipped with gas central heating, high speed WiFi internet, huge fridge/freezer, washing machine/traditional Edinburgh drying pulley/iron & board, hair dryer, Tassimo espresso maker, gas hob, electric oven, plenty of cooking equipment, basic food ingredients (oils, spices etc). There is a 42'' 3D Samsung SMART TV which also has a Netflix subscription in case you need to catch up on your latest box set addiction or a quick Movie fix!
There's a DAB radio/stereo in the kitchen from which you can play music.
Both Double rooms are very comfortable with new mattresses and fresh bedding is provided along with lots of towels and basics such as shampoo on your arrival. There is a third bed available - a blow up double that I will make up with sheets and all bedding for you and can be set up in the lounge. This can then simply be lifted out of the way and placed against the wall to free up space during the stay. A perfect solution if you are booking for more than 4 guests. (ONLY AVAILABLE IF PRE-BOOKED)
This is a great base if you want more than a hotel or serviced apartment can offer. I have loads of varieties of tea and coffee for you to help yourselves to as well!
I work and have lived in Edinburgh all my life and so can advise you on what's going on locally if you're interested in anything specific during your stay. Some maps, tourist leaflets, restaurant guides and info on the immediately local area are available in the flat. There are also many books and a collection of travel guidebooks for Edinburgh and beyond for you to enjoy while you stay.
Check-in and check-out times are flexible and I will try and accommodate your schedule whenever possible. It's really helpful to know your travel plans so please let me know what time you intend to arrive/depart and by what method of transport when you book.
Thanks for reading!
I'll hopefully see you very soon.
The property is a ground floor / maindoor flat.
I will arrange to meet with you at your arrival time.
