About the property

A newly renovated apartment within an historical Georgian townhouse

The property is located on Great King Street, one of the finest Georgian terraces in Edinburgh. It is a 5-10 minute walk from George Street and Princes Street where the best shops, restaurants and bars are located and the Castle is a 20 minute walk away. The apartment is on the first floor (one flight of stairs) of a traditional townhouse. The accommodation comprises a living room, kitchen, 3 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The superb living room has floor to ceiling windows, marble fireplace and decorative ceiling plasterwork has a large dining table, sofa bed, TV and DVD. The wonderful modern kitchen includes a dishwasher, electric oven and washing machine with built-in dryer. The main bathroom has a 'jacuzzi' bath and there is the second shower room off the master bedroom. The second bedroom overlooks the rear of the property with views to the north of the city and the third double bedroom (includes a single bed) faces the front of the building. Parking is available on request.

A relaxing Christmas for our whole family

  • 5 of 5

We completely enjoyed our stay here over Christmas this year! Francois met us as soon as we arrived in town and showed us around. The apartment was very clean and comfortable, with plenty of room for all 5 of us to be together, watching movies, but also was large enough that we could get some quiet time alone as well. It was within walking distance of shopping, dining, and attractions. Also, because we stayed several nights and cooked in, we were pleased that two grocery markets were very close. I would rent this property again and I have recommended this to a friend that will be traveling to Edinburgh soon.

A well presented and equipped property

  • 5 of 5

A good family time was had by all all of us who had travelled from New York. Bath and London to be together. It was good to meet Francois at the property on arrival as he could take us through everything we needed to know about the Flat, the environs and Edinburgh. We would recommend it for a stay just out of the bustle of central Edinburgh

Comfortable and convenient

  • 4 of 5

A lovely flat in the New Town, conveniently located for shops and amenities, Francois welcomed us and showed us how everything worked which was a really nice start. The flat is well laid out and everything worked really well. There were four adults and two teenagers and a visit from our son who is at university - Francois provided a put up bed to accommodate him as soon as we arrived. We visited the nearby Botanic gardens and got the bus to HMS Brittania from around the corner. A lovely spacious and comfortable stay - thank you.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment, fixtures fitting beds all very good. Well placed for the city only a walk away. The only negative was the constant problem with the Internet which in our case prevented accessing sky etc, other than that lovely and François very pleasant and helpful

Great Flat!! I'd rent it again!!

  • 5 of 5

Our 1st floor flat in Edinburgh was everything we hoped it would be. It was very clean. The kitchen had all the tools and amenities we could ask for. Just as advertised, we were only five blocks from Princes street and only a little bit further, the Royal Mile. There was a Tesco right around the corner and a Sainsbury about a block away to get groceries.

When we first arrived in Edinburgh, we took a cab to the flat. When we gave the cab driver the address, the first thing he said to us was, 'You're in a great spot...close to everything!!' I took that as high praise and very reassuring. He was right!!

On the walk up to the city centre, there are many restaurants, art galleries, coffee shops and bakeries.

Definitely loved St. Vincent's pub around the corner and the restaurant, Bailies, was lovely and about a 10 minute walk away.

Francois was very helpful upon our arrival, showing us around the flat and telling us where everything could be found.

I give this great flat 5 stars because our week was perfect! The description that led us to rent was spot-on! I can highly recommend this super rental!!

The property is located in the city centre so it is within easy walking distance of Waveley Station (15 minute walk), city centre attractions and shops and restaurants. There are a number of good shops and restaurants round the corner on Dundas Street. This street is also well known for its numerous, varied and expensive art galleries!
