These luxurious flats are located in an elegant Georgian townhouse, less than a 5 minute walk from central Princes Street and provide a very high standard of accommodation.
The first floor apartment (no. 2) is bi-annually inspected by the Scottish Tourist Board and awarded 5 stars - a world class grading. The flat is superbly equipped with a 43' plasma screen TV and an integrated sound system supplying music to every room in the flat. The 3 large windows overlook the delightful private Queen Street gardens for which a key is provided. This elegant room benefits from a remote controlled gas coal-effect fire and the two large sofas convert into beds should guests be staying over. The modern kitchen has granite worktops and is fully equipped with Siemens washer/dryer, Siemens dishwasher, two Siemens ovens - one with microwave - fridge freezer, waste disposal unit and wall-mounted LCD TV. There is a 3 ring electric induction hob and a large gas ring to choose from. The luxury shower has a ceiling 'drench' head and 4 body jets. The bedroom, situated to the quiet rear of the property, has a fantastic antique 4 poster bed, fitted wardrobes and dressing table. Clock radio, hair dryer, iron and ironing board are provided as is free Wi-Fi.
The ground floor apartment (no 1) has a similarly impressive living room but has the added feature of an early 19th century wall mural. The kitchen is well equipped and includes a dishwasher and washer/dryer. The stylish bedroom faces the quiet rear of the building. Please note that the shower room is accessed from the bedroom.
The apartment overlooks the private Queen Street Gardens for which a key is provided. This is a peaceful haven in the middle of the city centre with manicured lawns, mature trees and an array of beautiful flowers and shrubs. There is small lake with an island in the gardens which is reputed to have given Robert Louis Stevenson (who lived on the other side of the gardens when he was a boy) the idea for his book 'Treasure Island'.
We will 'meet and greet' you at the property, show you around and answer any of your questions. We are also contactable during your stay should you have any queries (we live a few doors along so we are always handy). All these services (including the cleaning at the end of your stay) are included in the rental rate.
We traveled from the United States with a husband, wife, and twin seven year old daughters. We stayed in the first floor (by European reckoning; 2nd floor for US) apartment. The place is absolutely stunning and beautifully appointed. The drawing room was comfortable and spacious, with high windows that poured in lots of natural light. The bedroom's four-poster bed was roughly American queen sized and very comfortable. The drawing room has two pull-out sofa beds. Kitchen had all manner of sleek appliances including a brand new Miele washer-dryer, one of the few we've come across that delivers an American-style dry and comes pre-loaded with detergent. Shower had top and side nozzles and plenty of hot water pressure.
Francois greeted us on our arrival and gave us a detailed introduction to the apartment, recommended local shops and restaurants, and some general overview of the area. He was gracious and made us feel very welcome. And the key to the private Queen Street Garden gave a lovely oasis of green space where our girls could run around a bit.
The prime location made it a 10 minute walk from Waverley Station and a short walk to all the shops, restaurants, and sights of the Old and New Towns. In short, it was an ideal, stunning home base for our Edinburgh explorations. We were sad to leave it, and look forward to coming back!
We stayed at this flat for 15 days and loved it! It had everything we needed. The pictures shown on the Homeaway site show exactly what the flat is like. The living room was huge and very comfortable. The flat has a large bedroom, with a very comfortable bed and a kitchen with everything needed. We had relatives in to dinner and had all the utensils needed to make a meal for them.
This flat is located on Queen Street and is within walking distance to everything. In addition to all the shopping and attractions, there are a lot of great restaurants and pubs close by. It was a 10 minute walk to Waverly Station.
The owner, Francois was a pleasure to work with. He responded very promptly to all communications and even came by the flat to answer questions we had.
We spent 4 nights in this wonderful apartment on Queen Street. It's a lovely apartment with a comfy bed, wonderful kitchen (stocked with anything one would need for cooking), lots of light from the big beautiful windows, very quiet and walking distant to Waverley Station, Old Town and many wonderful restaurants and pubs.
We had a great time in Edinburgh. This apartment is conveniently located, and was well appointed with everything we needed. Francois was helpful and made sure we felt at home in the place. A grocery store is only a few blocks away and there are many restaurants and pubs nearby.
The flat was lovely and suited us perfectly. We could walk everywhere easily and Francois was very accommodating. & helpful. Wouldn't hesitate to revisit! Loved Edinburgh!
This flat is located on central Queen Street in Edinburgh's historic New Town just a 3 minute walk from Princes Street. This is right in the city centre so all the city's main attractions, bars and restaurants are right on your doorstep.
