About this listing
A warm friendly welcome in a central flat within 15 mins walking distance of the city centre. Based in a quiet neighbourhood this flat has parking included and a friendly host with extensive knowledge of the best things to do and see in Edinburgh.
Flat is in Easter Road area, just off Leith walk – Omni Centre 15 mins away on foot and The Shore area 20/25 mins on foot – readily accessible for all Leith Walk and Easter Road Bus routes, it is an ideal location for those working in Leith or in or who want to explore the City Centre.
Flat is a two bedroom flat with shared lounge, kitchen and bathroom, it is in a quiet residential block with parking outside.
There is one room for rent and I occupy the other room. I have a busy social calendar to tend to be out and about a lot.
The room has double bed, built in wardrobe, bedside table and chest of drawers.. The flat has recently been decorated and is a cosy home it is furnished with all mod cons (cooker, washing machine, fridge-freezer, microwave, TV)
Leith is a fun area to explore but it is most likely you will want to explore the city centre,it is a 20 minute walk to the Royal Mile or Princes St in the heart of the city.
Guests have access to all communal areas of the flat ( kitchen, bathroom, living room) There is also parking available outside using a parking permit which are left on the hall table.
Interaction with Guests
I try to be available for all your queries during the trip but sometimes can be away for the weekend or out and about with friends. Happy to answer all emails in advance and always have my mobile on for any enquiries.
Check - in / out - I can usually be flexible on this but would be grateful if you can vacate the room by 12 in case I have other guests arriving. ( especially July / Aug). You are always welcome to store your bags at the flat if you depart later in the evening.
Arrival - on the odd occasion I will have other commitments (work / social) at your arrival time - in this case I use a masterlock padlock with a combination to store the keys in. If doing this I will send detailed instructions/ photos in plenty of time to help you and will always have a spare set of keys with a contact locally in case of any issues.
Parking – Permit parking is available for use just outside the flat, the permits are brown disc permits on the pin board. Replacement of these is expensive so if you forget to return these on departure I would appreciate if these could be posted back as they are needed for use of future guests.
Living Area - Make yourself at home, I have a small variety of Edinburgh books and maps for your perusal.
Kitchen – Please feel free to use all cooking / laundry facilities. It would be appreciated if laundry could be started before 10pm or during the day so as not to disturb the neighbours.
