This stunning apartment is located in Edinburgh's New Town and sleeps up to 4 guests. It has been decorated with much care and attention to provide an exceptionally comfortable and attractive space.

The space

The front door of the property opens into a spacious high ceilinged hallway with original wooden floors and sea grass runner (we would ask our guests to refrain from wearing high heels inside the property) it is furnished with interesting antique pieces including a Victorian pine bench and wardrobe.

The beautiful kitchen with original flag stone floor, attractive white units and granite work tops, overlooks pretty gardens at the rear of the property. A window seat furnished with comfortable cushions makes a perfect spot in which to relax and enjoy the lovely vista, whilst a gorgeous antique range with over mantel provides an interesting focus to the room. A vintage pine kitchen table with antique chairs provides plenty of space for 4 people to enjoy a meal. The room is well equipped with an oven and hob, fridge freezer, dishwasher, and plenty of glass, china, cutlery and cookware. A small larder houses a microwave, and the laundry cupboard houses a washing machine.

The well-proportioned drawing room, with original fire place and cornicing has a large shuttered astragal window with an ornamental Juliette balcony also looking out over leafy gardens. A 3 seater sofa, a velvet tub chair and a chestnut leather chaise longue provide generous and comfortable seating for 4 guests. A reclaimed pine coffee table, a Tibetan prayer chest and an antique pine chest of drawers furnish the room and add to its quirky eclectic feel. There is a TV with DVD player and freeview as well as WiFi access.

The Master bedroom is to the front of the building overlooking Great Kings Street, but secondary double glazing and working shutters ensure that the room is peaceful and quiet. It also has the original fire place with an exquisite framed patch work of antique saris from Jaipur above it. The room is well appointed with a super king sized brass bed with antique pine bedside tables and handmade Indian wrought iron bedside lights. A vintage pine chest of drawers and large wardrobe provide plenty of storage space for visitors. To the right of the fire place, a door leads to an ensuite bathroom with generously sized walk in shower, limestone floor with underfloor heating, basin, wc and heated towel rail.

The second smaller double bedroom offers attractive views over Drummond Place; it also retains the original fire place and is furnished with a white iron double bedstead with beehive themed bedside tables and pretty bedside lamps. It has a plenty of storage space in a reclaimed pine wardrobe and pine chest of drawers. The window has also been double glazed and has working shutters.

A family bathroom with black and white floor tiling and a free standing Victorian roll top bath with drencher shower over, a small basin and a WC completes the accommodation.

Please note that we are unable to accommodate children under 14 in this apartment.

My family stayed at this apartment for Hogmanay and it was the perfect place to stay! It's a beautiful big apartment with a fantastic kitchen. Nice big en suite in the main bedroom and very large lounge room. Terrific furnishings as well! Easy to get around to see all the main sights and would highly recommend for any families to stay in Edinburgh.

We could not have picked better accommodations at any price in Edinburgh. The comforts of home, a lovely view, the well-equipped kitchen and laundry, and utterly luxurious beds and baths made it a perfect four-day stay for three of us. We will be back, I sincerely hope. The Georgian flat described as stunning was just spot on. Many thanks for our early check in too. Location cannot be beat for those who appreciate a hill or two, and shopping/dining in the neighborhood north of New Town was great. Thanks, Anabel!

We had a wonderful time in this fantastic apartment. The moment we walked through the door the luxurious decor blew us away. Beautiful large rooms with high ceilings gave a great sense of space. There were all the amenities we could have hoped for... Lovely sheets, pillows and towels. The beds were very comfortable. The apartment is within walking distance of wherever we wanted to go. We particularly liked the Castle and The Royal Yacht ( however you need to be a keen walker for this) There were so many restaurants to try near by and we were sad that we could not visit them all in our short stay. We would definitely go back.

This apartment was our favourite on the trip. Enormous windows with beautiful views. Quiet and serene. Perfect location in walking distance from the tourist area but also close to local shops and restaurants.
