The flat was beautiful and clean. Great location.
We wished we could have stayed longer. The flat made us want to settle in for awhile. We had such a nice experience and David was very prompt and helpful.
A fantastic apartment in the centre of Leith. The owner David was thoughtful and helpful.
A great apartment I would use it again.
We loved our time in Scotland and David's apartment was perfect!
The location couldn't have been better! It was just far enough outside of the city center to where we felt like we had an authentic experience. There were plenty of restaurants, pubs, and coffee shops in the area which made it very convenient! The apartment is also very close to the bus stops and the buses come frequently enough that we never had to wait more than 5 or so minutes. We were able to get everywhere we wanted to go with absolutely no trouble. David was the consummate host and even gave us a little walking tour around the neighborhood which was really helpful! We would highly recommend this unit to anyone wanting to spend some time in Edinburgh!!
Perfect in every way!
This property is exactly as advertised! It is roomy, well appointed, and looks just like the posted photographs. The flat is convenient to many restaurants, public transportation, and grocery. David provided not only an orientation to the apartment, but a lovely walking tour of the neighborhood as well. Book this flat and you will not be sorry! Sad to be leaving today☹️. I hope we can return in the future...
Vicki hi there, thankyou for your review and generous words. You and your family are welcome back anytime.
Have a safe journey home and hopefully we will see you again one day
Perfect to use as a base while visiting Edinburgh
Clean, tidy and sleeps 6. David was very helpful and had time to show us around the area. Took his advice about the local pubs and restaurants. Leith has plenty for all tastes and was perfect because you could walk back to the apartment. The only downside is if you have to pay for transport backwards and forwards to Edinburgh city and for a party of 5-6 this can add up during your stay. The positive is Leith is the perfect place for the evenings when you might not want to be the city center. I would go back again.
Thank you very much for use of your lovely flat. Just the ticket for 3 guys working in the area to rest up at night and pop out for a drink.
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.
