Enhanced Clean
This host committed to Airbnb's 5-step enhanced cleaning process.
In central Edinburgh yet tucked-away in a mature private garden, this quirky, sophisticated dovecot is stunning. Serene & secluded, it's quietly thrilling. Wooden stairs lead to a tiny bedroom in the tower, where cedar-wood, lit ancient dove-nesting boxes & a garden view surround a double bed.
Downstairs there is a sleek bathroom; a rustic-chic kitchen beneath mezzanine; a pull-out sofa-bed and a mysterious cavern can be glimpsed beneath a glass floor-panel.
It's a relaxing peaceful hideaway with a tranquil, scented garden terrace.
Heated floors. Central heating. Wood-burner. Private parking.
