The space

A lovely ground floor apartment in a quiet cul-de-sac, with views out to both gardens. It is part of a traditional Edinburgh tenement circa 1900. The apartment has a large sit-in kitchen and 3 rooms of which two are available to the tenants.
The modern yet rustic interior makes it a comfortable, good value base for a city holiday. I am an artist so there are paintings and photographs on all the walls.

It comprises of one large bedroom with a double bed and a possible double futon. This room also has a TV which is only available for DVDs and Videos. The room has a piano in it, please feel free to play it during your stay.
The childrens' bedroom has a raised bed which measures 1.8 metres in length so can't accommodate tall guests.
The kitchen/dining area is cosy but spacious with a breakfast bar and a nice seating area by the window looking out over the back garden.
Often a lot of sun comes in through the windows, creating a bright and friendly space.

There is a separate bathroom and toilet.
The bathroom is newly installed and has a fabulous overhead shower and full size tub. Shampoo and shower geI are provided so you don't have to bring it : )
The toilet has it's own very small library.

Please note that there is a cat called Zoubidus who would very much appreciate to be fed every day.

The flat is located in the Tollcross area of Edinburgh which offers all amenities. It is only 5 minutes walk to the old town and castle. 3 cinemas are within a few minutes walk. We are 5 minutes from a big Edinburgh park called The Meadows.
The flat is a 10 minute walk from the train station, a taxi will cost around £4.

Bed linen and towels provided.
WIFI is available.

Please contact me before you make this reservation and I will confirm the availability of your dates. Thank you.

I have lived in Edinburgh for 15 years and know this beautiful city very well. As an artist the flat contains musical instruments and art works on the wall, and is quirky and interesting. I particularly love to cycle through the park around the corner or climb Arthur's Seat on a sunny day. We have a cat we love and always like to meet people and make new friends.
