Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Haymarket - True luxury. Sleeps 6.

Spacious rooms with 4m high ceilings and huge windows let the sunshine flood in

This very central luxury apartment offers everything you need to have a fabulous stay in Edinburgh. Close to everything yet in a peaceful location with gardens to lounge in. Chandeliers, huge windows, ornate cornices, and a log burning fire all give this property a wow factor!

The apartment is situated on Eglinton Crescent, only a 10 minutes pleasant stroll from Princes Street (at the castle end), and 5 minutes to Haymarket train station. The crescent has been awarded 'World Heritage' status due to it's beauty and architectural significance.

The spacious lounge has deep ornate cornices framing 4m high ceilings, a large chandelier, and a gilt mirror. The centrepiece of the room is the antique mantelpiece, which houses an open fire (with large child-safe fire guard). There is also a flat-screen TV, DVD player, and stereo, with surround sound to provide a cinematic experience.

There is a dining room off the lounge with glass topped table and seating for 8 guests. Along one side of the room a bookcase houses many books and magazines for guests to enjoy during their stay. The opposite side of the room includes a decorative antique panelled window and door letting sunlight through to the hall.

The sunny front bedroom, has two single beds with memory foam toppers. It also boasts large feature sash-window overlooking the central gardens, deep cornices, a brass chandelier, and a fireplace (decorative only) . There are working panelled wooden window shutters throughout the apartment.

The master double bedroom is to the rear of the apartment overlooking private gardens. The carved mahogany bed has an extra-large (5'5”) memory foam mattress and topper. The bed is framed by antique bedside units and there is also an ornately decorated antique french armoir. There is a large walk-in-wardrobe with plenty of storage space, above which is a mezzanine level study area with a desk and chair.

The kitchen has bespoke-made wooden units and includes a granite breakfast. The cupboards are stocked with all crockery/glassware/pans and utensils you might need for a comfortable stay. There is a Nespresso coffee machine, oven with 5 ring gas hob, microwave, dishwasher and a built in washing machine (a tumble drier is in the hall cupboard).

From the kitchen, there is a spiral staircase leading down to the third bedroom, which is bigger than it looks in the photo - measuring 4.2m x 3m. Here we have a double bed with memory foam mattress. The room also has a deep inbuilt wardrobe with shelves and plenty of hanging space, a chest of drawers, and a full length mirror. There is a flat screen TV...cuddle up in bed and watch a movie. Note: There is a reduced ceiling height in this room at 190cm (6'3"). We have a child stair-gate if required to safety-proof the stairs.

The large family bathroom features an iron double-ended roll-top bath, decorative Victorian mosaic tiled floor, and heated towel warming-radiators. There is a powerful (twin-headed) 'waterfall' shower housed within a separate alcove. Both the kitchen and the bathroom are connected to the main stereo system via stereo speakers to allow guests to enjoy music throughout the apartment.

Outside, with private key access, there is a large mature garden, with lawns and a separate secure children's play area. The children's area include a climbing frame, slide, child and baby swings, a large sand-pit, a Wendy (play) House, and a picnic table.

We provide high-speed wireless internet and also leave a small selection of DVDs (including children's DVDs) and CDs for guests to enjoy. However, you may want to bring along some of your own.

Lastly, we offer a friendly meet and greet service, whereby you will be met at the property with keys and shown around. For guests arriving late, or those unsure of their arrival time, we also offer the alternative option of a key safe. There are full instructions inside the apartment as to how everything works, tourist information etc. There is also a local point of contact should anything go wrong during your stay.

In general we have a 3 night minimum stay policy, however we sometimes accept 2 night stays should they fill in gaps in our calendar between longer stays.

EDINBURGH'S FESTIVALS:

Edinburgh is the world's leading festival city, with 12 major annual festivals bringing talents from more than a third of the world's countries to our streets and stages. Dating back to 1947, the Edinburgh International Festival was established after World War II to create "a flowering of the human spirit" in the Scottish capital. Other festivals followed, from military grandeur to intimate jazz and blues, captivating science to underground theatre and children's entertainment. As these festivals grew into world leading celebrations, they became an inescapable part of Edinburgh's identity.

About Kirsty Stewart

I am from Cheshire originally, but moved to Edinburgh for University in 1993....where I met the love of my life, James! We married 11 years later in 2006 and now have a little boy, Joseph.....who is gorgeous. Having lived in Edinburgh for 22 years we have recently moved away to be nearer to family; leaving our beautiful home available for others to enjoy.

We love travelling and seeing new places, so we try to provide our guests with the sort of friendly/homely feel we'd like ourselves when we're away. Edinburgh is a fabulous city that will always have a place in my heart - we really hope you enjoy it as much as we have done.

Kirsty Stewart purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Kirsty Stewart chose Edinburgh

The sense of space within our apartment is really not conveyed on the photos (largely due to my lack of a wide angled lens!). The rooms are all very well proportioned, but they feel enormous due to the 4m high ceilings. Added to that, the main rooms are south facing with floor to ceiling windows so the light just flood in. It really is impressive in real life, and has an abundance of original period features to add interest and character. We are in a very safe (posh!) residential area, yet only an easy stroll to the attractions/bars/restaurants/shops.

What makes this apartment unique

*Real working fire.

*Original, intricate cornice-work throughout.

*Working wooden shutters (internal) - lovely for late morning lie-ins.

*Surround sound system wired throughout property - listen to CD's whilst relaxing in the bath, or party in the kitchen.

*Double-ended roll top bath, and separate 'waterfall' shower.

*Quirky extra levels - go down the ornate spiral staircase to the 3rd bedroom, or go up the ladder in the master bedroom to access the mezzanine study.

*Luxury antique furniture, comfy beds with memory foam toppers and, large sofas to sink into.

*Nespresso coffee machine

I could go on and on!

What a fabulous time we had at the weekend.

We must be getting old because rather than shopping on Saturday afternoon we chose to go back to the apartment light the fire and just have a good natter over a bottle or two ! It seemed a shame not to take full advantage of it.

When looking for a way to improve things all we could come up with was a pair of kitchen tongs to help turn our morning bacon and sausage over on the grill ........ that shows how perfect everything was!

We would love to come back again sometime and will definitely recommend to others.

Amazing apartment and great location.

  • 5 of 5

After a 19 day, 5 city European trip, this apartment was hands down the best. So beautiful, amazing private garden across the street, and great Haymarket location. Kirsty and Simon were both great to work with and accommodating us dropping bags off sooner than check in. It was very clean too! I wish I could have spent longer in this amazing apartment! There was scaffolding on the outside of the building but Kirsty warned us prior to our travels and it did not interfere with the beauty of the apartment. I can't say enough good things about the apartment or host. Thank you!

Beautiful home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home very much. It is conveniently located in a quiet residential area with restaurants and stores in easy walking distance. A short taxi ride or a longer walk takes you to the Royal Mile and wonderful Old Town area. The park directly across the street, including a nice, gated children's play area was greatly appreciated since our travel group included a 20 month old child. The home is amazing, with high ceilings and huge windows. It has so much Old World charm, but is also updated with modern conveniences. The spacious kitchen and laundry facilities were much appreciated, as well as the comfortable living area, dining table and beautiful claw foot bath tub. We are a close knit family group, so having one bathroom worked for us, but that would be the one possible inconvenience I could mention. Also, the neighbors are close, so I wouldn't recommend it for groups hoping for any noisy activities. I would definitely want to stay at this lovely home again and will enjoy the memories of being in such a beautiful place in such a wonderful city.

The property was unbelievable, the place was out of this world & the location was great for everything we did, Edinburgh Castle, Loch Leven, the zoo, climb Arthur's Seat & many more things; we even managed to do the Park Run, near the coast

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property to stay in. Although centrally situated in Edinburgh it is in a lovely, peaceful area with the added bonus of access to a garden and play area which my 2yr old grandson appreciated. Accessibility from the airport and getting around Edinburgh couldn't have been easier.

The photographs do not reflect how truly amazing the flat is and it was perfect for us, (6 adults and one small person) to have the opportunity as a family to spend time together but also have the space to not feel crowded. It was spotlessly clean, very comfortable with obvious evidence of care and attention to detail to be able to pamper guests and proved for all their needs.

We had the flexibility of dining in or out. There are a couple of supermarkets conveniently situated close by and a wide choice of restaurants within the area. We would recommend the Omar Kyhham for take out curry.

Kirsty provided excellent customer service with helpful advice and always promptly replied to any questions we had. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this property to stay in. For groups of family or friends it beats an hotel any day!
