On Lady Lawson Street in the heart of the Old Town, this apartment is minutes from Edinburgh Castle, Princes Street Gardens, and the famous Grassmarket. Expect a vibrant neighbourhood with some of Edinburgh’s best quirky boutiques, vintage shops, art and gift shops, food and arts and craft markets (on Castle Terrace and the Grassmarket every Saturday). There are great places to eat and drink and there’s a handy Sainsbury's Local across the road for grabbing a few bits and pieces. Waverley and Haymarket train stations are a 15-minute walk or 5-minute cab ride.

On the first floor of one of Edinburgh’s traditional tenement buildings, this two-bedroom apartment is vibrant and fresh. The spacious, cosy interior is beautifully furnished and decorated in our individual style with a mix of new, vintage and up-cycled pieces. Expect all the comforts of a boutique hotel, with plenty of space to relax and plan your next Edinburgh adventure.

The spacious, well laid-out living room features two traditional sash and case windows overlooking Lady Lawson Street, which bring in lots of natural light. There’s a lovely fireplace with a colourful Mexican tiled hearth, two comfy mid-century style sofas, a vintage G Plan coffee table, dining table and chairs, smart TV with Netflix, WIFI and Bluetooth speaker. The kitchen is well-stocked with complimentary breakfast cereals, milk, tea and good coffee and you’ll find all the kit you need if you want to cook. The bright, rear-facing master bedroom has a very comfy king size bed with luxury Egyptian cotton linen, a powerful hairdryer and plenty of storage space. The front facing second bedroom has a double bed, ornate cornicing and lovely vintage furniture.

The spacious bathroom has a bath and shower over the bath. We provide a full range of toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand wash and body lotion) so you can travel light. Each guest gets a set of fluffy white towels.

About host

Duncan Forbes

We are a fun-loving and sociable couple from Edinburgh with two young children. We love our amazing city. One of the best things about Edinburgh is the fact you can walk almost anywhere, and our apartment is ideally located in the heart of the Old Town. We are huge music fans so can point you in the direction of great music venues, pubs and clubs, many of which are a short walk from our apartment. We also love food (Daniela is a chef & Dunc is obsessed with good coffee) so we can recommend the best coffee shops, cafes, restaurants and food markets. Having traveled extensively ourselves (before the little people came along!) we know what makes a great holiday base. We look forward to providing a warm and friendly welcome!
