The space
Perfectly located on a quiet section of Edinburgh's Royal Mile the apartment is furnished to a high standard with lots of attention to detail to ensure you enjoy a very comfortable and refreshing stay. The property enjoys spectacular views of Calton Hill with its eclectic collection of monuments (including Nelson's Monument - and its famous time-ball) and also of the Royal Mile with Canongate Kirk and its cherry trees in the foreground. There is real Scandinavian oak flooring in the hallway and living area – and carpets in the bedrooms. There is a good sized double bedroom (with a king-size bed) and a smaller bedroom which can be set up with either 1 or 2 single beds. Secondary glazing in the bedrooms ensures a peaceful night. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything we think you will need, including a full sized dishwasher. With free wifi and a wide selection of DVD's and books and games for when you want to relax, the apartment provides a very welcoming and comfortable space for a couple, two singles, a family of up to 4 or alternatively someone happy to chill out on their own!
The apartment has always been cleaned to a very high standard but due to COVID-19 extra time and care is now taken to disinfect all areas.

Guest access
Guests will have access to the entire property during their stay.

Other things to note
The apartment is on the 3rd floor of a beautiful old stone building (hence the wonderful views!) so with a few steps to climb it may not be suitable for elderly guests, those with mobility problems or travellers with very young children in buggies/prams. If the usual arrival or departure times aren’t convenient please contact me as it may be possible to offer alternative check in/check out times.

Location

Abbeyhill, Edinburgh, Scotland

There are numerous attractions (including many free options) within less than 5 minutes of the apartment’s front door - including the Scottish Parliament, Holyrood Palace (the Queen’s official residence in Scotland), The Museum of Edinburgh, The Scottish Storytellers Centre, Dynamic Earth and the magnificent wild, rugged hillsides of Salisbury Crags and Arthurs Seat (to name just a few!). Edinburgh Castle is just a 20 minute walk up the historic Royal Mile (though with many distractions en route!) and there are lots of fantastic restaurants, bars and shops in the immediate area. Princes Street is 10 minutes away. Dunbar’s Close Garden, set out in 17th century style, adjoins the property and provides a beautiful tranquil spot in which to relax. The apartment is very well situated for full enjoyment of all that Edinburgh has to offer.
