Set right in the heart of the city, this surprisingly quiet garden flat forms part of a magnificent Georgian townhouse. Everything you want to see in Edinburgh is a short walk away.

The space

A very central rental apartment in a fine Georgian house, built in 1791 and 2 minutes walk from Princes Street on safe, well lit street.
The whole of the lower ground floor of this handsome Georgian town house has been made into a modern 3 bed self catering apartment by the owner who lives above. She is very happy to advise on places to visit and things to do.There is a king, a double and a single bedroom, large living/dining area and patio doors to a small courtyard at the rear. Dishwasher/washing machine/tumble dryer/microwave and Aga style cooker. Shower room with separate WC (no bath). Price inclusive of all bedding/towels and utilities.
Around the corner is North Castle Street and then a short stroll takes you to the main shopping thoroughfare of Princes Street with Edinburgh Castle straight ahead. From here you can walk to virtually anywhere in Edinburgh and take time to explore, art galleries, museums, the cobbled streets of the 'Old Town, or the Georgian symmetry of the 'New Town'. There are masses of places to eat and drink around about, and a supermarket just up the road.
Parking is metered on the street. It's easiest to get about without a car.
A key is available for access to the delightful spacious private gardens opposite, where you can enjoy a few moments tranquility in the centre of this beautiful capital city.
The apartment is priced for up to 5 people staying using 3 bedrooms. The Edinburgh Festival in August is priced separately by the week (£1400). Any queries, just ask.
I also have a king sized room with private bathroom (with large shower and bath) on the ground floor of the house, which is available on a bed and breakfast basis. This may be more suitable if you are a couple only, or can be added to the basement apartment to create accommodation for up to 7 with two bathrooms.

Guest access

The apartment is accessed via outside stairs from street level.There is a handrail, but this may not be suitable for the very aged or infirm and child buggies will have to be carried up and down.
A key to the private gardens just across the road is available on request. A large double room on the ground floor with private bathroom is also available on the Air BnB site.

Interaction with guests

I live in the house above the flat, so I am on hand to welcome you on arrival and advise on any questions you might have then or during your stay.

Other things to note

Tea/coffee/mik/juice and a light breakfast are provided for your first morning. If you would like me to pick up extura groceries in advance of your arrival just send me a list and settle the bill when here.

A perfect place to stay while in Edinburgh. Easy walking to castle and royal mile. Nicely stocked kitchen, though our time did not allow us to take full advantage. Private garden area was great. Lucy was a great communicator and met us upon arrival. Perfect host. Will return.

Hi, I live in the townhouse above the flat with my 3 teenage children. I love hosting people from around the world and am on hand to advise about places to visit or where to eat out. With so many shops, restaurants and things to see nearby, you will need more than one trip to Edinburgh.
