About Graeme Rae

Hi Guests,

Many thanks for considering to stay at my home in Edinburgh. Whether your coming for business, pleasure or to visit family, I hope you will enjoy my apartment and all Edinburgh has to offer.

I grew up on the outskirts of Edinburgh in Balerno and after graduating from The Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen have been travelling and working all over the world for the last 20 years.

During this time I’ve learnt to keep things simple has always worked best. I hope you see this in how both the apartments I’ve bought are laid out to provide you with a comfortable and pleasant stay. From an early check in to drop off luggage to Unlimted WiFi, Cable TV, Nespresso Coffee, Complimentary Red Wine, Flat screen TV’s, NEST Temperature control, luxury Linens, Dressing gowns and bedding. Add this to the additional space, privacy and flexibility of a private apartment, along with fully equipped kitchens and I do hope you have the perfect holiday.

I hope you find my apartment welcoming and you might just notice the occasional piece of Thailand along the way.

Any questions please do ask I’m always on hand to answer any queries. Enjoy your Travels !!

Graeme Rae purchased this apartment in 2006

Comfortable stay, very close to Arthur's Seat

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific three-night stay. The shower and bedding are great, and we appreciated having fresh milk and coffee available. It's a great location for exploring Edinburgh, especially since we were there for the weekend and could park our rental car for free across the street.

Exactly what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfectly located and everything taken care of by the owner. Even came with wine and a cute snack! The nespressos were the ideal treat with the rising sun. We were happy to keep the blinds open and wake up to a bright room and view. I'd definitely stay here again. I can't believe what a deal this place was.

Perfect base for a city break

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with our boys (11 & 7) for four nights and had a fantastic holiday - Perfect as a base to explore the city, with easy access to everything by bus / walking. The flat is lovely and a cosy place to come back to relax in, after days out. Bus stops are just a few minutes walk away so you are in the city center very quickly. Would definitely recommend and hope to return one day!
