Located within a converted bonded warehouse dating back to the early 1900’s this newly renovated apartment gives a little bit of modern luxury combined with a traditional mercantile setting within the cosmopolitan and vibrant Shore area of Edinburgh’s old port of Leith.
Everything was so easy from getting the confirmation of the booking to making arrangements to access the property! The apartment itself is beautiful and is stocked with everything you could possibly need. We particularly loved the wine fridge. Bev met us and showed us how everything worked and she was so friendly and welcoming! Apparently she isn't the one who normally meets the guests but we thought she was brilliant and understood exactly what we needed. Will definitely be booking again when we have our next trip to Edinburgh!
This flat was perfect for a recent short break in Edinburgh. As a birthday treat I took my 16 yr old son and a friend to one of the autumn internationals. I needed at least 3 bedrooms in good quality accommodation in a great location - this property ticked all the boxes. David was great, met us on arrival and took his time to show us where to have an evening meal, breakfast, the local supermarket etc.
We were 3 couples and stayed 3 nights. The space available was adequate for that period but for any longer the apartment may be better suited to a family. Nevertheless, we did not feel cramped and there was comfortable seating for everyone.
The owner, David, met us on arrival and explained the facilities. He was also very helpful with suggestions about restaurants, local attractions and especially about which buses to catch.
Access to the apartment was very easy, it being on the ground floor, it was very well appointed, very clean and its location in Leith couldn't have been better.
I have already recommended the apartment to my brother and will be recommending it to others.
We had a great stay in Leith! Easy access to all the things we wanted to do in Edinburgh via the comprehensive bus system and an easy walk to a multitude of restaurants and pubs from our flat. Edinburgh is a fun city and Leith is a unique environment all it's own with the many restaurants and shops. David was a great host who met us on arrival, provided us a tour of the neighborhood, was on call when we had a mysterious beep (we hadn't closed the dishwasher door properly), and sent us on our way when we checked out. The flat was spacious and immaculate. We'll stay here the next time we are in Edinburgh.
We loved the apartment and David was a great host.
Appartement très agréable, bien situé, très propre, propriétaire très accueillant et sympathique. un peu plus d'ustensiles de cuisine (par exemple casseroles) aurait été apprécié..... Merci pour ce séjour.
Leith is an ideal location as a base for easy, quick access to all the sights of Edinburgh and the Lothian's. Whether this is for a shopping expedition, sight-seeing, weekend chill-out breaks, festival breaks, nightlife or sporting activities.
Edinburgh airport is only 9 miles [15 km] with a direct bus from the bus stop located 1 minute from the apartment. A taxi journey to the airport is around 20-30 minutes and will cost approximately £20. Leith is a great alternative to an expensive city centre property, as a family bus ticket is £8.50 for a day which includes the new tram service.

Activity is focused mainly around the shore area, with many diverse bars and restaurants now catering for locals and tourist alike. It has most of Edinburgh's best restaurants within walking distance of the apartment, where there are numerous bars and bistro’s catering for all tastes and international cuisine with each offering something unique.
The area on the Leith waterfront known as the Shore has been extensively restored and is now a cosmopolitan mix of converted warehouses, loft apartments, restaurants, & pubs. It has become the top foodie destination in Edinburgh and among the best in the UK with an enormous choice of restaurants including 2 Michelin star restaurants within its relatively small area.
Close by on the site of what was Henry Robb’s shipyard is Ocean Terminal indoor shopping complex. Designed originally along the lines of a ship by Sir Terence Conran, it is now home to the famous Royal Yacht Britannia, designer shopping, gym and 12 screen multiplex cinema plus a number of well-known restaurant chains.
There are also historical buildings such as Lamb's House, Trinity House, South and North Leith Parish Church’s. Plus a Jazz and blues festival in Leith in June and the Mela festival is in September.
