About Gareth

I'm Gareth and I own and manage this gem of a holiday apartment, recently renovated in a great location I'm privileged to be able to host guests from across the world and accommodate them in Edinburgh. I love meeting new people from all walks of life and hearing their stories.

Gareth purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Gareth chose New Town

I was looking to buy a city centre property in need of renovation and I came across the flat in 2011, it hadn't been maintained for atleast 25 years. I seen that it had masses of potential but it was a huge challenge...Great location and great character!

What makes this apartment unique

The property was built in 1792 when Edinburgh's 'New Town' was under construction. It still retains all the original internal doors and floorboards which I restored. Along with the exposed original stonework wall, this property has a great feel to it. Put together with the location its a stunning place to take in the city!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Enjoyed out stay, only wish it was longer. Lovely apartment, has everything you need and more. Great being right in the middle of Rose Street. Will be back, thanks!

Perfect Edinburgh stay

  • 5 of 5

Perfect 2 bedroom Edinburgh stay. The location is amazing: right on Rose Street, one minute to Princes Street and shopping, five minutes to Royal Mile and all of the attractions. The apartment itself was well appointed, clean, and very comfortable. To top it all off, the owner is incredibly responsive to any question. Just a great place.

Lovely flat in perfect location

  • 4 of 5

In spite of a small problem at check-in, this week in Edinburgh was wonderful. The flat is located in a perfect place to walk everywhere. Gareth has made a wonderful modern accommodation in an 18th century building. It was especially fun, to sit at the table by the front window and watch Rose Street come alive each morning! Evenings were quiet, despite the pub nearby. No complaints! But ... it would be nice if there were a wee lift! I understand the tough logistics involved though. And we managed, with the kindness of others. Cheers, Gareth! We hope to return one day.
