The space

The flat was built in the 1970s and has central heating and double glazing throughout. It is on the third floor with lift access and all the rooms are south facing onto gardens and parkland. There is central heating throughout. The flat is lovely and warm. The kitchen was recently re-fitted and is equipped with oven, hob, microwave, fridge freezer, washing machine, kettle, toaster and espresso machine. We provide cutlery, crockery, glassware, tea, coffee, basic condiments. The living room has a sofa, TV, DVR, HiFi, table and chairs. The bathroom has a 3 piece suite with an over the bath shower. We also provide towels for guest use. The main bedroom has a king size bed and the second bedroom has a single bed with a pull out trundle bed beneath it. The flat can sleep a maximum of four guests. Unlimited free Wifi is supplied. There is a selection of games available in the hall cupboard. We also have Nintendo Wii, Wii fit and lots of games to keep the kids and the big kids occupied.

Guest access

Guest access is by prior agreement. We have a lockbox and self checkin is the usual method of entry. We can be at the flat to let you in at an agreed time if you prefer this. Usual checkin time is any time after 6pm and checkout is by 11 am. Earlier check-in can sometimes be arranged especially at weekends. There is limited free parking on Saunders Street in one of the 25 residents spaces. These are unreserved so it is first come first served. If you want a free space and these spaces are full you will have to wait for someone to leave. Street parking in Saunders Street and India Place is free after 5.30pm or all day Saturday and Sunday. Otherwise parking is pay and display and charges apply Monday to Friday 8 30am to 530 pm. We cannot be held responsible for any fines you incur as a result of parking illegally and advise you to always read the parking rules on the street signs and meters. Every street has its own parking rules and these are posted on lamp posts.

Interaction with guests

We have a self checkin service but can be at the apartment to meet you and show you the flat if you would like this. We can explain the area and answer any questions. We live 10 minutes away by car and guests will have our mobile numbers so we can often be on hand very quickly if needed.

Other things to note

There are no stairs or steps inside the flat and there is lift access from the Saunders Street side of the building at street level to the flat, which is on the third floor. It is also possible to access the building with stair access from an entrance on India Place. There is a flat below and a flat above. It is possible to hear people walking around upstairs so this space is not recommended if you think this could annoy you or disturb your sleep. For bookings of 8 days and up to 14 days, the flat will be refreshed and linen and towels will be changed mid-stay. This will happen weekly for longer bookings.

Dan and Alex were great hosts. We were warmly greeted at the apartment by Dan when we arrived. The apartment is located in a beautiful spot near the river and within walking distance of everything we wanted to see, or we could also easily access public transport. Having access to a parking space was really helpful. The apartment was very well appointed, quiet, clean and has a wonderful few of greenery. We loved our Edinburgh stay. Thanks Dan and Alex for a great place to stay.

Great flat in a great location. Everything is as outlined in the description. Great neighbourhood with wonderful restaurants, pubs and coffee shops. It is a short uphill walk into town. As we were travelling with small children we caught the bus from the end of the street which was easy. Also lots of taxis that were also very reasonable to get into the city centre too. We drove to Edinburgh so needed to park at the flat, it took us a little while to nab one of the resident car parks, we used pay street parking until then. Would stay here again, wonderful!

Very nice apartment. We didn't experience any problem with the upstairs tenants causing noise with the floors, and the keylock check-in made the usual hassle of connecting with the hosts to get the keys a moot point.

We are a friendly gay couple living and working in amazing Edinburgh. Dan works in marketing for a local college and Alex is a chef and college lecturer.

We love to travel and see new places and know how important it is to have a comfortable base in new surroundings.

We enjoy getting out and about, cooking, socialising with friends, meeting new people, cinema, theatre and lots of other stuff too. We also work hard and appreciate the quietness of our surroundings and the relaxation it offers.

As hosts I hope we will be able to fulfil your needs, respect your privacy and provide you with as many of the comforts of home as possible. We would like you to feel at home.
