About this listing
This flat is very homely & unique! You will have a one off chance to be centrally and confortably in the heart of this beautifull and amazing city! This secret & surprising flat is only 5 min from the Castle and main attractions.
The Flat is located just behind Greyfrias Bobby's with the Flooden Wall on its court yard! Although, it is locatted in the heart of Edinburgh City Centre, the flat is very quiet.
Guests will have a private room which has a walking in wardrobe that has plenty of storage space for luggages and so on.
The guest will be sharing the bathroom, kitchen and living room with myself, therefore is expected that commun areas remain nice and tidy as you will find it upon your arrival. I do not offer breakfast but always tell guests to help themselves for tea & coffee as they please.
Upon your arrival I'll be giving you a tour around the flat and I'll be showing you how it functions and its rules, including also informations about wi-fi access and so on.
I provide nice & clean towels and if you wish to use the kitchen to cook or store food I'll make sure there will be free space for you on the cupboard and on the fridge.
There are no private carpark but there is an option to leave the car outside the flat during evening time and weekends , as there is a single yellow line which allows one to park a car from 6pm till 8am (please double check the exact time, as it can be slightly wrong!)
Interaction with Guests
I'm in and out most of the days, including weekends, as I'm working as well as studying and other personal appointments. Therefore, is very likely that we will hardly be on each other's way, what will make you feel as if you are having the whole flat for yourself! But when I'm in I'll always make sure to help you out with information or on anything else if I can. It will always depends on the guests schedulle as well. Usually people come with a set plan and I just give some extra advice, but there are guests that I was happy in taking them to places and chat over a coffee in the city centre... It's just something no one can predict I guess :)
Although the flat is part of a building it is locatted on the ground floor and has its private entrance, so one may feel as if they are in a private house which offers peaceful and quiet atmosphere!
The flat is only 2 min walking distance from The National Museum of Scotland, The University of Edinburgh, The Grassmarket and The Castle and Royal Mile are also less then 10 min away, giving guests the opportunity to walk everywhere, allowing them to come back to the flat to drop off shopping bags or just for a quick stop, then off again to explore the rest of the city. It's also ideal for night life, as there are a great amount of unique cafe's, restaurants, pubs and live music (i.e. The Jazz Bar).
Other Things to Note
I have two gorgeous kittens: Miya & Maya.
I've been loving having this experience with Airbnb. Meeting people and sharing experiences is something that I value. But it's important to bear in mind that this is not a hotel, it's my house and I'm happy to be sharing it with you so your experince in Edinburgh can be uniquely different and hopefully unforgetable! In return, I expect you to keep the place nice & clean and to be very careful in remembering to switch off the lights, taps, and most importantly, to make sure all doors are properly looked. Otherwise, I'll make myself helpfull but will respect your space and privacy as well.
This is a beautiful flat right in the middle of everything in Edinburgh. It was perfect for exploring the city and seeing the festival events. Even getting to the crags was only a short walk. Fernanda is a great host and very accommodating. Totally willing to chat and make suggestions or leave you to your own devices. The kittens are adorable and very sweet. Even as someone allergic to cats the bedroom and entire flat were so clean that my allergies didn't bother me at all during my stay.
Fernanda was a very welcoming host who gave great autonomy and space to us when using her apartment. Due to my own oversight I was unaware that this was only a private room so please be aware of this in the title 'Cosy Flat' however this was not a hindrance and we did not get in each others way or even cross paths with Fernanda when we were in the flat as we were both out the majority of the time in Edinburgh centre and I imagine it would have been very easy to sit and chat with Fernanda had our paths crossed. The location was perfect and close to everything whilst remaining with a sense of tranquility and peace with no noise from the street. If you are not a cat lover then be aware that two cats live in the kitchen/living room but they were not disturbing to us. The overall stay was easy and seamless from start to finish.
A great welcome, at time arranged. No problems finding cosy flat and Fernanda. Really convenient to our travel requirements attending the Tattoo. Would spend more time there if our travel itinery allowed. Fernanda, you a great hostess,thanks for sharing your home.
The flat was perfect. Very cute, perfectly clean, comfortable and beautiful. Fernanda was very warm and welcoming. The location is great, both central but also quiet, good place to chill during the excitement of the fringe. It is just off a busy street along a cobbled lane, the entrance is through a small door in what looks like a garage door, opening into a very lovely little courtyard garden. Feels like a secret escape. Some great inexpensive local places to have breakfast. Highly recommended.
Had a lovely time in this delightful flat. Quiet & serene, a world away from town but the location is fantastic. Minutes from everything! Fernanda is super, this is an awesome choice for staying in Edinburgh.
Great little gem of a flat hidden away right in the heart of the city. Comfortable and convenient! Fernanda was a very friendly and accommodating hostess and kittens were an extra treat! Would stay here again any day!!!
Warm & vibrant welcome from Fernanda. Clean & beautifully presented flat. Fernanda was very helpful and had great communication. Kittens are wonderful and adorable. Would defiantly recommend to family and friends wanting to stay in the heart of the Edinburgh area.
