The space

A light, sunny apartment on the fourth (top) floor of a modern Edinburgh apartment situated off the vibrant Leith Walk area of Edinburgh.

You will enjoy the ENTIRE self catering apartment to yourself, which is fully equipped and has been recently refurbished. I can accommodate up to 5 people (I can also provide a travel cot on request).

The apartment benefits from a fully equipped kitchen with all the essentials you need plus much more! There is a bathroom with a large bath and shower. Both of the bedrooms consist of a super comfortable double bed with a new memory foam mattress, large wardrobe and television for your entertainment, along with remote controlled dimmers to set the light just right.

To the rear of the building, there is a well maintained, shared garden area and Pilrig Park, ready for you to laze about in during those lovely sunny Edinburgh days.

With your stay at my apartment, you will be welcomed by tea and coffee (instant and fresh) along with washing detergent should you wish to use the washing machine. Luxury natural soaps handmade in Scotland by my mother, quality fresh bed linen and towels are also provided.

The apartment also benefits from:

-Free unlimited and speedy WIFI (100 Mbps)

-Large Flat Screen TV with xBox 360 and AppleTV for watching Netflix

-Power Shower and bath

-Central heating - with a Nest Thermostat for use with iPhone or Android devices so you can adjust the temperature remotely

Check in time is from 3pm and check out is anytime before 11am. If you are arriving earlier than this please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate otherwise, Edinburgh Waverley Train Station and Edinburgh bus station have lockers where you can store your luggage for around £8-10.

I may be able to accommodate a later check out than 11am, so please just ask and I will do my best.

***Please note, a security deposit is included in your booking amount which is held by Airbnb. It will only be used in extreme circumstances where damage or loss has occurred - This will be automatically refunded by Airbnb upon check out - I hope that doesn't put you off booking my lovely place*** :-)

The apartment is 1.5 miles from the city centre and is served by a number of buses. All of the following buses can be taken from right outside the apartment - 10, 12, 14, 16, 22, 25 to name a few, going into the city centre and take around 10 minutes (To Princes Street). N22, N16 and N7 fast, frequent and safe Night buses also run directly outside the apartment so you will find it very easy to get around at any time of day.

Guest access

The entire flat to yourself and access to the rear garden spaces. Either myself or Izel can be there to meet you, but if not there is a key box outside the apartment for 24/7 easy access at your convenience

Interaction with guests

My friend Izel will always aim to meet you in person at the flat to show you around at a time that is convenient, handover the keys and answer any questions you may have. Both of us are always available 24/7 should you need to contact us.

Other things to note

Check in is anytime from 3pm and check out anytime before 11am.

Please note there are stairs and no lift available.

An external security camera monitors the front door.

Unfortunately, I do not have the ability to store luggage within the apartment should you wish to check in early/check out late and I have other guests arriving. An alternative is Edinburgh Waverley Train Station or Edinburgh Bus Station has secure luggage storage facilities for a small fee (around £8). If I have no other guests checking in/out, I'm more than happy for you to store luggage for free.

***Please be aware of the noise being made when entering or leaving the apartment - especially with luggage, as this may disturb my neighbours - and we wouldn't want that now, would we!?*** :-)

Elliott's place is the best AirBnB we have stayed in and we've stayed in many across NZ, USA and the UK. Elliott ensures you have all the information you need without having to ask. The flat has all the mod cons and is really homely. Location is just out of the central Edinburgh which was our preference. We still walked to Princess Street easily but liked being away from all the craziness. All the personal touches make this place a great stay! Highly recommended!
