Perfect to use as a base while visiting Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

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.

This apartment exceeded my expectations. Everything was brand new, spacious living quarters, nice bathrooms and well appointed bedrooms. Very convenient to local shops, restaurants and public transport.

David was great to deal with!

I highly recommend this property!

Fantastic - Couldn't recommend this apartment highly enough!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Right property, right location

  • 5 of 5

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.

Highly recommended.

Small(ish) but perfectly formed

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.

Leith is the old port and docks of Edinburgh, steeped in history it is a hidden gem with a bustling bar and café scene and boasts a very vibrant community. Up till the 1920's Leith was a separate entity, distinct from Edinburgh and as a consequence it has retained its own character both in its people and atmosphere.

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.
