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 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.

Amazing Shortbread

We had a great stay, we walked through the front door and were greeted by flowers, Dee’s amazing homemade shortbread and a bottle of prosecco! Our time here was to celebrate my birthday and we also got engaged so the Prosecco helped to start off the celebrations! The amenities available were exactly what was needed, including a well equipped kitchen, a TV with Netflix, great WiFi, an incredibly comfortable bed and a phenomenal shower! The location is perfect for exploring the city and getting to sights such as Calton Hill and Hollyrood Park. Dunc and Dee were great hosts, providing us in advance with all of the details for the city, such as sights and places to eat. We also thoroughly appreciated an updated list being sent due to the COVID restrictions and found it super helpful! Communication was great and they were very responsive. We'll definitely be coming back!

Fab Place

We had a fab time here. There was everything we needed, and the location is amazing. We were also left some shortbread and prosecco which was a lovely thing to do, and made celebrating my boyfriends birthday start with a bang! Would definitely recommend this place for a short, city break

Lovely Stay, Great Location.

We had a lovely stay! The apartment was very nicely done and perfect for us as a couple. The location is brilliant for exploring being situated just off the royal mile and very close to Arthur's seat. Dee was an extremely good hosts and provided us with a great list of suggestions for restaurants and walks nefore we arrived. Would certainly stay here again and highly reccomend.

Perfect short stay!

Great three night stay in this quirky cosy lovely apartment. Location could not have been better. The most comfortable bed and the pillows are the best I’ve slept on (need to ask what type they are Dee)! Fab shower, everything I needed and the lovely extra touch of fresh flowers, shortbreads and Prosecco. I will be back to stay again. The only negative is the parking which is not the fault of the hosts. Just extortionate Edinburgh pay as you go prices. Conveniently located outside the apartment but if you don’t want the expense, we found a car park 15 mins walk away that had an all day rate of £10 on Justpark so don’t let the parking put you off of staying in this wonderful little sanctuary

Exceptional host

Exceptional host, apartment and area. Extremely thoughtful touches throughout. One of the best showers in the world! If you're visiting Edinburgh I doubt you'll find anywhere better, I never have before and will be returning.

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!
