Overview

About the property

Classic cobbled street in Edinburgh's laid back West End

The apartment is beautifully decorated and is packed full of Scottish fabrics, original Scottish paintings and drawings, warm colours and heaps of personality. It's a great base from which to explore Edinburgh on foot, and once you're worn out from a great day of shopping or sightseeing there's a fab kitchen in the apartment and a wood burning stove for a cosy night in. For the more energetic just dump the shopping bags, get the 'glad rags' on and walk a few hundred yards to some of the best bars and restaurants that Edinburgh has to offer. After a few nights here you're almost guaranteed to feel Scottish and you certainly won't want to leave!

You enter the traditional 'shared stair' at pavement level and make your way up the original, stone steps to the apartment door on the 2nd floor (the top). There are two bedrooms; one very large and one large. Both rooms can be set up either as twin beds or double beds (Super King size and King size). The beds are naturally 'Luxury Hotel' standard. The master bedroom has a lovely dressing table with an illuminated magnifying mirror for the ladies.

There is a very well equipped large dining kitchen with oven, hob, microwave and everything you need to cook up a feast! It also includes a dishwasher, washing machine and digital radio.

The Lounge is beautifully decorated and features a wood burning stove and original fireplace. There is wifi, digital cable TV and a Bluetooth speaker for your entertainment and the side board is crammed full of fun board games for a lively night in! There is also a sofa bed available in the lounge for larger groups.

The bathroom is a warm and welcoming room with its large tub, big traditional shower head, stone tiles, warm colours and the all important under floor heating!

About Andy Murray

I've been involved with property in Edinburgh for 12 years and have always loved Georgian and Victorian architecture with all it's grandeur! I have renovated and upgraded many original Edinburgh properties but the 'Snug' is my first Holiday Apartment and I absolutely love it. I live a short walk down the hill from the apartment in an old townhouse in Stockbridge with my wife Rebecca and our 2 little boys. If I ever need a quiet sit down I sneak off to the Snug and hide!! My father in law is a famous Irish poet (Michael Longley) and my sister in law is a well known Scottish/Irish painter and most of the books are Michael's collections and the art on the walls are Sarah Longley originals or sketch work from her bigger collections. Also, if you'd like a kilt made whilst you're here - my brother in law is a kilt maker!!

Why Andy Murray chose Haymarket

The West End of Edinburgh is a hidden gem of a place, full of boutique shops, delis, coffee shops, proper pubs and restaurants and it just so happens to be less than 5 minutes walk from Princes' Street. It's such a great location that as soon as I saw the apartment I knew it had to be shared! Doing interiors is one of my passions and I was able to cut loose on the William Street Snug with Georgian colour schemes and gorgeous Scottish tartans and tweed textiles and original Georgian walls are ideal for hanging great art!

Perfect place, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This was a great flat. In a nice quiet location yet close to all the action. We walked every where from here. Safe, had everything you could need and was amazingly clean. Andy was responsive and check in and check out where simple. Two pubs located right at the door step. Coffee was supplied as well as milk butter and bread. If I come back to Edinburgh which I would love too I would definitely want to stay here again. Plenty of places to eat nearby. Supermarket around the corner. Pharmacy. Late night gin speak easy and piano bar near by. This place is a GEM. This is why I love VRBO!

Such a great place

  • 5 of 5

Andy is a great person, we met him and help us with our luggage. The apartment was all well decorated and inclusive with a Christmas Tree and holiday decorations. It is well located and in a very lovely street. Our stay was a perfect one, we felt like it was home.

Thank you Andy.

Great location, clean and spacious apartment, convenient neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The flat was clean and nicely decorated. It was spacious and easily accomodated our 2 adults and 4 children. The landlord was hospitable and easily accessible for questions. The tram and buses are only a few blocks away and can take you anywhere in the city. Prince’s street is an easy walk.

Great location, great host, superb apartment

  • 5 of 5

The Snug is a beautiful, well furnished apartment located in a great area of Edinburgh. From the time Andy met us on William St to the time we sadly left, no issues.

A beautiful experience......

Thank you for everything
