St Mary’s Street is full of character, home to quirky independent shops, cafés and restaurants and right beside Edinburgh’s most famous Street - The Royal Mile. It’s just a short walk to all the main sights like Edinburgh Castle, the Palace of Holyrood, the Scottish Parliament and Arthur’s Seat. Waverley train station is a five minute walk away.

This apartment is on the second floor of one of Edinburgh’s traditional tenement buildings. There’s a secure entry phone system and stunning views to the Royal Mile and Calton Hill.

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 living room features two traditional sash and case windows which bring in lots of natural light. There’s a smart TV with Netflix, WIFI, and a 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 quiet, rear-facing bedroom has a comfy double bed, with Egyptian cotton sheets. The well-designed shower room has a powerful shower and 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.

Great base to explore

Dunc and Dee were brilliant communicating with us as our flight arrived so early at 7am - and check in time wasn't until 2pm. Dunc suggested to check in our baggage to the National Museum of Scotland and have breakfast at Brew Lab (we would definitely recommend going there for coffee and smashed avocado and feta on sourdough). Dunc managed to get us checked in a little earlier (someone else was in the flat that day). The flat was lovely, stylish and really cosy. I was wondering if it would be warm enough for January, but the heating was easy to control and we needed to turn it down at some points! We also very much appreciated the prosecco and chocolates! A great touch to make us feel welcome. The flat is right in the heart of the main historical street of Edinburgh, so you walk out of the flat and are immediately in the thick of it. It's a great base to explore from! The shower is also amazing and really powerful. Thanks for having us!

We absolutely loved our stay in Dunc & Dee’s beautiful apartment! It is in an amazing location, right in the heart of the old town and a short walk to the train station. There are plenty of bars and restaurants close by, too! The apartment itself is beautifully decorated, and is very homely. The kitchen facilities are perfect for cooking meals in the apartment, and the essentials were already there. Dunc & Dee’s extra lovely little touches - including homemade shortbread - made our stay even more enjoyable! Communication before and during our trip was also brilliant. We really couldn’t recommend this apartment more highly, and will definitely be back! Thank you Dunc & Dee for making our weekend in Edinburgh so special :)

Great flat

We stayed 2 nights in Duncan and Dee's place and loved every minute of it! The apartment is so spacious and cosy with lots of home touches, they have really thought of everything! There was tea and milk included for us to use and even some homemade shortbread, which was delicious! The location was also perfect! This will be the first place we book if we return to Edinburgh in the future.

Well, where do I start?! It was faultless from start to finish, with Dunc & Dee being the perfect hosts. Centrally located, tastefully decorated and cosy, this property is ideal for a long weekend in Edinburgh. The homemade shortbread was a nice touch (and much tastier than shop bought versions we tasted during our trip)! Would definitely stay again. Thanks D&D

Loved it

We loved our stay at Dunc & Dee's place, a super conveniently located and stylish apartment, perfect for a short stay but we would have very happily stayed longer. Dunc & Dee have worked really hard to make this apartment feel like a cosy home away from home, and it shows - we loved the small touches and gestures! I would highly recommend a stay here, and look forward to coming back soon! Holly & Rich

Great Base

We had a brilliant time in this lovely flat. My husband was working in the centre of Edinburgh for a day and it was a fabulous base for us. It was clean, comfortable and the bottle of prosecco was an added treat. We really appreciated being able to leave our bags slightly later until our train. We would definitely use again and have already recommended the flat to my friends and family. Thanks again for a wonderful stay.

So Central

Lovely place in central Edinburgh. Even tho I've not met them, Dunc & Dee are really friendly and gave really detailed instructions and recommendation for the local area.

Would stay again!

We had a great stay at Dunc & Dee's lovely centrally located flat. Plenty of great attractions in waking distance and many fantastic food and nightlife recommendations provided by Dunc & Dee. Would stay again!

Fun Festival

A fabulous place to stay for the Edinburgh Book Festival and Fringe. (And any other time of the year I expect.) Hosts were most helpful and answered any quires we had promptly.

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!
