About the property

Ideal for 3 couples each with large bedroom and private bath/shower room

This is a large 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom family Home , with separate spacious Drawing and Dining rooms, Cloakroom with WC & WHB, fully fitted Kitchen and a separate Utility room, all ideally located in the West End of the City Centre. Can be arranged for 3 couples with own room and private bath or shower room each, or as 6 single beds in the 3 bedrooms. Extra small single beds can be provided in 2 of the bedrooms at no extra cost, allowing for families/groups of up to 8 in total..

It comprises the ground and lower ground levels of a traditional old Victorian stone-built terraced town-house with its own secluded and private walled garden and patio/terrace with table and seating area at the rear.

It is situated in a quiet single-sided leafy crescent just a few minutes walk from the central Princess and George Street shopping areas as well as the Haymarket Railway Station and Transport hub and surrounding restaurant area, 2 Art Galleries, and the Edinburgh Conference Center. There are 3 late opening supermarkets, and other convenience shops, in the Haymarket and West End areas, as well as a Post Office and Banks with ATM facilities.

The view from the large front bay window is across to private gardens, to which guests have access, and through mature trees towards the Art Galleries. The picturesque Water of Leith Walkway runs at the bottom of this garden, with access only 2 minutes from our front door.

This a family House, our home in fact as we live here ourselves part of the year. It will feel like a home, not a bland hotel or minimally furnished apartment building, and so we would hope you will enjoy it as a Home as much as we do.

About James

Retired and living in this house with my wife Janet for most of the year. But we move to our small house in France from April to September so this Edinburgh home is available for holiday lettings throughout the summer.

James purchased this house in 2001

Why James chose Edinburgh

We have lived in Edinburgh for over 40 years and love this central location and the open view to gardens and trees opposite the house.

Like being at home in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

James and Sarah were very accommodating for our family, 3 little children and 6 adults, attending our son's wedding. Centrally located on a quiet street but we still were able to walk to the central district. Cab fare from the airport was $20 US; well worth it considering luggage and children. Grocery store about a 15 min walk. We'd certainly stay there again on a repeat visit to Edinburgh.

Lovely Flat in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here and especially found the flat as described. James was so helpful in promptly answering all of our questions prior to our stay, and Sarah was terrific to meet us and get us settled. They both were very accommodating. We highly recommend this flat. It was perfect for our family trip to see our daughter graduate, and we hope to visit again!

Edinburgh break, perfect location for our long weekend

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting Edinburgh for the half marathon, for which two family members enters. In all we were 8, covering three generations and surprisingly, all 8 thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

The house was spacious and comfortable with all the facilities as described. Including a bridge table which was not but was brought into use.

We entertained friends and family(we lived in Edinburgh many years ago) one afternoon and that was also successful.

A very comfortable home which I would be happy to recommend.

The only drawback was the parking. It is possible to find alternative free parking but it is a pain and the parking fees are prohibitive and restrictive. I wonder if it might be possible to obtain temporary resident paring permits. I would have been happy to pay for one of these for the duration of our stay,

Great location, very spacious accommodation!!!

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of room in this property for the six of us and potentially more people.

All the mod cons required for a comfortable stay when your not out enjoying the many things there are to do in Edinburgh .

Great communication with owners prior to arrival & nothing seemed to be too much trouble.

Would definitely use this property again and would definitely recommend to anyone wishing to stay in this beautiful city !!!

We were there for Hogmanay weekend.

One couple early 50s , 2 couples early 20s . Thanks again !!!! Jim .

Very quiet and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay. The property is exactly as described on the website and is very convenient for the centre of town. Most places we wanted to go to for the Fringe were within half an hour's walk so we walked everywhere. The patio at the back of the house is a sun-trap on fine days.
