The Space

The apartment is on the bustling pedestrian zone of the High Street and right in the centre of the main Edinburgh attractions.

Living room
Our comfortable family living room looks out onto the Royal Mile and has a lounge suite and a dining table to sit six.

The kitchen is fitted with a Neff oven, washing machine, fridge and stovetop. All dishes and pots are provided.
I supply the apartment with fresh Artisan Roast coffee, tea from Anteaques (a local Edinburgh tearoom), oil, sugar, salt, milk and some fine Edinburgh chocolate from Coco to get you started.

The master bedroom has a superking bed, a fitted wardrobe and an en-suite shower and toilet.
The twin room has two extra long single beds and a large fitted wardrobe.
The double room has one 4' double bed for a cosy couple.
All the mattresses are new pocket sprung with memory foam. The pillows are made from memory foam or synthetic fibre to provide different thickness to ensure you get a restful sleep.
All bedding is hypoallergenic and without feathers.

There is a cot and a baby bath for families, just let me know if you need them.

The main bathroom has a fully-fitted bath, shower and toilet. The en-suite has a shower and toilet.

There is free wifi.

Please note:
There is no parking, no TV and there are steps leading up to this 2nd floor flat.

  • This was a fantastic apartment right above the closed-off pedestrian-only part of the royal mile.

    Michael and his acquaintance Oliver (who helped us out while Michael was traveling), were great. Oliver gave us a long description of all the spots we should consider visiting in town, marking our map up for us.

    The chocolate & coffee were a nice touch!

  • I stayed here with my three sisters and we had a great time! I have collected my sisters' responses and mine:
    1) Michael was quick to respond to all email contact and very courteous and nice in his interactions. He made sure his friend was there to let us in in his absence and left delicious chocolate and coffee for us - a very nice touch.
    2) Location was perfect!!
    3) Enjoyed having the front living room area and kitchen to spend time together.
    4) Worked out well for four people. The room with twin beds is a bit small for two but the front bedroom has a spacious bed do it was no problem sharing that one.

    The location was awesome!!Kitchen was very clean and inviting;) nice common area overlooking the Royal mile!! Lots to see!

  • appartement très sympa, salon avec feu de cheminé au gaz ( de vraies flammes, de la chaleur, c'est top)
    il est superbement situé, dans une rue piétonne en plein cœur du vieil Édimbourg
    la literie est très confortable
    la pression de l'eau est un peu faible, la moquette au sol un peu kitch mais globalement c'est un beau logement plein de charme à recommander
    attention marches raides pour atteindre l'appart

  • Michael was a very accommodating host. We wanted to book a place in the centre of Edinburgh for five people as we were attending a friend's wedding at St Giles and Signet Library - the location could not have worked out better.

    The place is charming and spacious. Quite steep stairs (not a problem for us and to be expected in an old building) and unfortunately some trouble with the shower head. Opted for baths instead.

    A very pleasant stay overall.

  • We had a very good time in edinburgh at Michael's apartment! The location is great, plenty of room for everybody ( we were 5 adults) , very confortable and cosy. And the fire place was very pleasant for a drink after a whole day outside. Thank You Michael

  • We went to Edinburgh for a weekend to surprise my dad for his birthday. All was arranged quickly and we were welcomed by a friend of Michael. We loved sitting by the fireplace at night. During the day, we could walk all over town and still get back 'home' within half an hour. Perfect location!

I live close to the property here in Edinburgh. I am from New Zealand and also live part time in Malaysia. I have two young boys. I delight in traveling and visiting coffee plantations and cafes around the world. This is something that I call work. I have four cafes in Edinburgh, and you're very welcome to come on in for a delicious coffee when you arrive. It will be a pleasure to meet you!
