Formerly my home, and just revamped top to bottom, you’ll be in one of Edinburgh’s most smart, relaxed and young-at-heart neighbourhoods. Marchmont has always been characterised by academics, professionals and Edinburgh University students living easily side-by-side, and so it remains - Marchmont’s allure is as strong as ever. The streets are peppered with independent shops and eclectic coffee stops so you’ll want for nothing locally. however the blissful green expanse of Bruntsfield Links and The Meadows are two minutes away. Walking across the latter (under the gaze of Arthur’s Seat to the east) will see you in the city centre amidst all of Edinburgh’s attractions in 15 pleasant minutes. Accessed via a clean and well-lit shared stairway (kept secure by an entryphone system), the flat is happily only one flight up. And once inside you’ll appreciate the restrained but luxurious surroundings, the extraordinary period features, the high ceilings and sheer scale of the accommodation.

About Martin or Weng
Edinburgh residents (and superfans!) who take great delight when guests enjoy the city as much as we do. Easing ourselves gently into semi-retirement means we have time to indulge the passion we have for our home. This means you'll be dealing with us and not a 'manager' - all the better to ensure your time with us is as good as you'd wish.

We loved this meticulous clean and beautifully decorated apartment in Edinburgh. We met Martin and Weng upon checkin, they were so welcoming and provided us with so much info from transportation to where the locals go in Edinburgh. The apartment has absolutely everything you need to enjoy your stay and we need to mention that the bed and linens are the best. Coming back to the apartment at the end of a long day was homey and comfortable. Martin and Weng were in touch with us by email during our stay to make sure all was well and reminded us that they were available at any time if we needed anything. Thank you for a great stay in Edinburgh. 5 stars.

This flat far exceeded our expectations ... lovely, elegant atmosphere, sparkling clean, spacious and bright, with comfortable, eclectic furnishings. We thoroughly enjoyed preparing meals in the large, airy, well equipped kitchen. Each of our days involved hours of walking, exploring, and sightseeing and it was wonderful to come ‘home’ to the very comfortable livingroom, great TV selection, and the fast internet so we could plan our next day. Excellent location ... walking distance to the Meadows, the university, the Grassmarket, the Royal Mile, and multiple pubs, restaurants, and grocery stores. Many thanks to Martin and Weng for the warm welcome (staples, treats and wine), and the efforts made to get us into the flat as soon as possible as our overnight flight arrived in the early morning.
This is a very comfortable home. Great location.
Wonderful accommodations. Location is very convenient to Old Town. Kitchen had all we needed to prepare our meals. The neighborhood surrounding the home had plenty of grocery stores and small cafes. On days we didn’t feel like walking into town there’s 2 bus stops and a taxi stand across the street.
Beautiful property in a great location
The communication from booking to arriving at the flat was great, we knew exactly where we were going and was not disappointed when we arrived. The apartment was immaculate, beautifully decorated and had everything we could have possibly wanted. The location is perfect just a 20 minute stroll into town across the meadows. There are some great cafe's and bars within easy walking distance of the flat and we felt like locals for our stay. Would not hesitate in recommending the property at all, we will be back :)
Great place to stay.
The apartment was lovely, like home from home. Martin and Weng were very helpful and at the end of the phone when we needed them. If your'e going to Edinburgh, this is the place to stay. Thanks M&W.
This apartment is fabulous. I had high hopes as the photos looked great, but the apartment exceeded my expectations. The space is lovely, the rooms feel grand with high ceilings and huge windows, yet the apartment still feels cosy, homely and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need and a few generous extras, which we very much appreciated. The location is great with the Old Town being a short walk away through The Meadows.
Martin and Weng are great hosts, friendly, helpful and professional.
We loved our stay in this apartment and would happily recommend it to others and would very much like to stay here again in the future.
Book it. You will not be disappointed.
Coast/Beach: The East Lothian coast with its myriad walks, links courses and pretty coastal towns can be reached quickly by car or train, as can the East Neuk of Fife with a string of charming fishing villages. Travel: Edinburgh Airport (with flights to Europe, and multiple daily flights to London) is reached by a cheap & regular bus service stopping at the West End, Princes Street, Waverley Station. Edinburgh's mainline rail stations serve the entire UK. Car use isn't required in Edinburgh since everywhere is walkable, but drivers will find paid on-street parking in surrounding streets (Mon-Fri) and free on-street parking a short walk away. Long-term parking is also found in the city's main car parks. Distances: Since Edinburgh is a compact city and a joy to walk around, distances are irrelevant given the proximity to the city centre. However those wishing to explore further afield will find Glasgow, Stirling, Perth and St Andrews within easy reach by car or public transport, with the majestic Highlands and the rural Scottish Borders quite feasible for day trips for those with a car.
