Overview

About the property

This beautifully presented second floor apartment in Edinburgh’s Old Town has a communal roof area with stunning views of Edinburgh Castle - perfect for watching the Edinburgh International Festival and Hogmanay fireworks, or for having a peaceful drink at sunset.

Bread Street is a fantastic location in the heart of the UK’s favourite city (Observer Travel Awards 2012). The best of Edinburgh is on your doorstep. World-class tourist attractions, cutting-edge theatres and vibrant festival venues can be found amidst a throng of Michelin-starred restaurants, artisan cafes and leafy parks just beyond your threshold. Have a wee browse below to see what’s on offer.

This completely modernised apartment benefits from classic Edinburgh high ceilings and large south-facing windows, as well as a brand new kitchen and shower room. Comfort and convenience are high on the agenda, with luxurious Egyptian cotton bedlinen, a well-equipped kitchen, an iPod/smart phone dock and Wi-Fi throughout.

Check-in is from 3pm on the day of arrival and check-out by 10:30am on the morning of departure. Whenever possible, we are happy to arrange an early baggage drop-off or late baggage collection to suit your travel plans.

We provide a friendly and personal service, meeting all guests on arrival to provide keys and show you around the apartment. Our hope is that the apartment will be a home away from home during your stay in Edinburgh.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. We would love to hear from you!

About Emelie & Owen Lima

We are a South African-Swedish couple who love going to new places (especially hot and sunny ones). In 2005 we somehow found ourselves in not-so-sunny, but spectacularly beautiful Scotland, and we are still in Edinburgh today. Combining our passion for property and travel, we always thought it would be fun to have a holiday let, so in 2012 we bought this flat in the perfect Edinburgh location and spent several months giving it a complete makeover. We hope you like it!

What makes this apartment unique

Call us biased, but we think this is the PERFECT location to explore Edinburgh (if in doubt, have a look at the list of what's available within 10 minutes' walking distance!). We also love the roof area and the character of the flat, with its high ceilings, bay windows and even an old-fashioned clothes pulley.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment was in a perfect location and very convenient. We found it comfortable and cosy with all the mod cons. Loved the sound system. Also thank you for being such friendly and accommodating hosts - the extended departure time helped us get sorted out easily enough and without any fuss. Great value, great flat and most importantly great hosts. Thank You.

The property is fantastic . Perfect for what we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We have had a fantastic time in Edinburgh. The apartment is fantastic , very clean and had everything we needed for our 3 night stay with our children. We would thoroughly recommend staying at this apartment and would definitely stay in this apartment again. We had a very warm welcome from Linda, who is lovely. The apartment is very central to everything in the heart of Edinburgh ,yet slightly away from the hustle and bustle of the town. The children enjoyed it as much as we did. Thank you so much .

Great location - lovely apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely welcome on Friday night from our host Linda who showed us round apartment. it was a really cold weekend & the apartment was so cosy & warm, just what was required after a day out exploring! So convenient to everywhere - short walk to Grassmarket & Royal Mile , 10 min walk into to Princes St. Sainsbury's supermarket is just across the road & there are many lovely restaurants in Grassmarket. If you like Indian food the Tuk Tuk Indian Street Food on Leven St (about 10 min walk) is a must - food is amazing! It would be nice to go back in the summer & make use of the terrace & the wonderful view of the castle. Thank you Linda, Emelie & Owen for a lovely stay in your apartment - home from home with everything we could possibly need.

Lovely little flat in the middle of the city

The place was beautiful, very clean and well stocked. Everything in the city was within walking distance, and there were maps and guides supplied. I would definitely stay here again!
