About Val Leek

I have shared my gorgeous apartment in Leith with guests family and friends for the last 10 years. I currently live in North East England happily a very short train ride and slightly longer car journey to visit my favourite city. It's main attraction now are my two lovely grandsons. There's lots of fun to be had with or without the little boys.

Val Leek purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Val Leek chose Leith

When my husband and I walked into this brand new half finished sunny apartment we were sold immediately. It's spaciousness, warmth- despite being unheated- views, and practical things like the designated parking place were and still are a great bonus.

What makes this apartment unique

We love parking up after a busy week at work then setting off on foot for an amazing choice of food and drink on the Leith shore. It is a short hop up to the city with even more choice. We have seen great shows at the theatre, enjoyed mindboggling choice at the festival and caroused with throng at New Year. It's a year round destination with countless things to do.

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed here en route to dropping my son off to university. The flat is well positioned, close to bus routes into the main tourist attractions in Edinburgh and within easy walking to the Royal Yacht Britannia. We thought we would end up eating in Edinburgh but actually found some fantastic restaurants' really close to the flat. Would definitely stay here again.

This flat was in a perfect location!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in this flat for 4 days in June 2014. We were a family of 6. The space had everything we needed. We bought the daily bus passes to get to all the attractions. The Ocean terminal mall was directly behind the complex so we could go shopping, eat at restaurants and go to the movies. I would definitely stay here again.

Home From Home

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I stayed here for 2 months-our daughter who lives nearby was having her second baby and we were there in a supportive role.
The apartment is spacious and clean,and the meet and greet worked really well.We particularly appreciated the garage car space,with direct lift access from the garage to the 5th floor being very convenient.
The apartment has an excellent kitchen with a sizeable dining table-we made good use of it,although there is a wide range of restaurants nearby if you prefer to dine out.
The bedrooms are also a good size,we used the master bedroom and found the king size bed very comfortable.
The apartment also has wifi which is easy to connect -a valuable feature.
This is a very comfortable apartment and for us it became a home from home for the duration of our stay.We will be using it again,and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

Wonderfully cultural holiday!

  • 5 out of 5
It was a lot larger than it looked - so it worked well for us as a family of 5, with 2 good sized bedrooms and a sofabed in the lounge. Small and major chains of shops nearby, easy to park, flat is very secure. Light and airy, smart, beautifully clean, with a nice communal kitchen dining/living area. Friendly welcome, too. Worked really well for us, taking the bus in and out of the centre for the festival. Edinburgh is a fantastic city and all the drama, art, music, stand-up comedy we saw at the Festival was of a really high standard. Really want to come back if we can!

The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 out of 5
Just back from a wonderful weekend in this very comfortable apartment- a "girls" fun weekend- 5 of us - four sisters and our lively 81 year old mother. The apartment itself had everything we needed , it`s spacious and very comfortable and spotlessly clean and its location is perfect .We felt perfectly safe at all times. The nearby shopping centre with M&S meant we could eat breakfast in the apartment before we set off into town. The bus service from the same shopping centre was very efficient .The owner and housekeeper were a pleasure to deal with.I would highly recommend this apartment .
