This apartment is located in one of the nicest, safest, and popular residential areas of Edinburgh (we live just a street away), an ideal location for visitors with the castle and Royal Mile a short walk away and village amenities, restaurants, shops, theatre all on the doorstep. The apartment is surrounded by local amenities (see full description below), and is in an ideal location for taking a short walk to the Castle, Royal Mile, National Museum of Scotland and many other of Edinburghs attractions.

We are a small family business with just 3 lovely Edinburgh properties. We have advertised on VRBO for at least 7 years now and have our own Edinburgh Villa website which has larger photos and helpful tips on Edinburgh. We also provide out guests with additional extras such as all the dishwasher/washing machine supplies, free wifi internet, and money saving vouchers for the Royal Yacht Britannia etc!

Restaurants and Brasseries,

15-20 minutes walk to Princes Street, Castle, Royal Mile area.

This Victorian apartment is new from Dec 2012 to the holiday rental market and as such the pricing is very good for what it offers. Ideal for families or couples it's a very comfy and welcoming apartment located in one of the safest, and most popular areas of Edinburgh. The rooms have been furnished to a high standard, there are comfy couches to relax in, new beds and mattresses, and our first guests have loved it (see reviews, and we now have more reviews to be added shortly.

This is a spacious city centre apartment located in a building built in the late 1800's. Traditional in Victorian style and still with it's original features which includes lovely high ceilings with ornate cornicing, the lounge itself is 20ft x 12ft. Each room also has a bell system which is still connected to the original bells seen in the kitchen, these were used for when owners of these apartments had servants. Character galore!

The accommodation comprises large living room with free wireless internet, DVD player, DVD's, a spacious family dining kitchen with dining table that seats up to 5, 2 double bedrooms and a single bedroom. There is both a bathroom and a separate shower room.

We supply towels, linens, and other supplies such as dishwasher tablets, laundry detergent (there is both a washing machine and a tumble dryer), dish sponges etc. All you need to buy in is food! There is also coffee and tea provided and a carton of fresh milk will be waiting in the fridge for you.

Please be aware that this apartment is located on the top (3rd floor) of a 100yr old building. As is common in most older apartments there is no elevator therefore this apartment is not suitable for people that do not like stairs. There are 3 flights, and 2 landings. We do want to add that being the top floor does have benefits, there's no noise from above, and there are lovely views from the rooms located to the back.

Bruntsfield along with neighbouring Morningside and Merchiston is one of the most upmarket and prosperous areas of Edinburgh. As with all citys not all areas in the city centre are recommended to stay in, but this area has a lovely safe feel to it. Sean Connery went to the school just across the street from this apartment, Authors such as Ian Rankin live here and up until a few years ago Harry Potters JK Rowling lived a few streets away. This area has a high street of cafes, boutique shops, restaurants, theatre, cinema, brasseries, bakers, jewellers, gift shops, and there's a Tesco and Sainsburys just minutes walk away.

First purchased the Edinburgh Villa when I lived in Northern Virginia USA, then after moving back to Scotland 5 years ago we purchased this lovely apartment. We only live a few minutes walk away from the Victorian Apartment. Best area in Edinburgh!

Astra Foster purchased this apartment in 2009

Location, location, location! So close to the historic sites etc but also in a lovely village like area with so many amenities on the doorstep. Also prefer this flat to flats on ground or middle floors as it's much quieter and love the open views towards the Pentland hills.

Spacious rooms, views, sunny, etc!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed two weeks in Edinburgh and I did tons of research before choosing this place to stay. We LOVED it. It truly is a perfect location. Our aim was not to try and see the entire country during the time we were here. Rather we wanted to truly experience Edinburgh and get to know it in more than a passing way.
The neighbourhood this property is in (Brunstfield) and Morningside (just down the road) are lovely to stroll through and have plenty of options for shopping. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking and dining, the living room is bright and sunny and the bed is just like a cozy nest. We didn't end up eating in that much, but occasionally we tried the butcher, baker and grocery stores - all within a couple of blocks.
I found it very quiet at night, so no trouble going to sleep. However you are only 1/2 a block from all the shops and the bus line. We chose to do our exploring on foot, but did take the bus and trains for a couple of adventures and it's a cinch. The bus line you are close to heads right to the main downtown area and the train station. We took a train to Glasgow and out to Dundee, Perth and Stirling. We also did a sort of self guided bus tour. For just 3.50 pounds you can travel all day on the bus.
Astra greeted us upon arrival (having checked on our flight herself!) and showed us everything we needed to know about the apartment. She had answered my questions via email and given us some great tips. We tried almost all of her suggested restaurants and were never disappointed. She made herself available to us if we needed but didn't hover around - trusting us to take care of her lovely property.
The photos are exactly as you will see it. The place was spotless and had the best map of Edinburgh along with plenty of other reading materials. There were all the essentials for us and having a washer/dryer and the internet was very much appreciated. You will be surrounded by wonderful old buildings and cobble stone streets.
I'm writing this on our last day here - my husband is just cooking up the bacon he bought at the local butcher and we're off to the Saturday market and a last toodle around before heading home.
Oh... one last thing - we started chatting with some locals while out for a hot chocolate and they said we'd picked one of the best neighbourhoods in Edinburgh in which to stay. Rather than being touristy or given over entirely to fashion stores, it truly is where the locals live.
