My flat is very spacious and light with views of trees and sky. The centre of Edinburgh is a 30 min walk or 15 mins by bus.
The main bedroom has a single futon and bed which can either be two singles or joined to make a large double, the second bedroom has a double bed. There is a living room with a kitchen and dining space and a bathroom with a shower. The kitchen has a washing machine, dishwasher, electric hob and oven. There is central heating, instant hot water, double glazing and wifi.
The apartment is located on the second floor, so up two flights of stairs, in a traditional tenement building within a residential area of Edinburgh. It has been renovated this year with a new kitchen and bathroom. The bathroom is compact.
The neighbourhood has great quirky stores, cafe's and restaurants. There is a local Sainsburys just a 5 min walk away. The bohemian district of Bruntsfield is a 10 minute walk. I love walking into town along the canalside on a sunny day, the stroll into town is delightful.
I provide some basic food eg milk, bread, butter, jam, so that you don't have to shop immediately you arrive. There is also cooking oil, salt and pepper, sugar etc for your use.
It is ideal for a city break with Fountainbridge entertainment centre which has a cinema, pool and ten pin bowling (2 mins), Edinburgh canals (5mins), the lovely Meadows parkland (20mins), the Kings Theatre (10mins) and Princes Street, the High Street and the Castle in the city centre (20mins) walking. It's also ideal for anyone attending the EICC, as it is less than a ten minute walk.
I have hosted for a few years myself, you can read the reviews on this listing.
There is metered car parking on the street and it is free at weekends, there is a large public car park at Fountainpark. There is free on street parking at Harrison Gardens and the streets around there which is only a 5 minute walk away from the apartment.
There is a shared garden at the back of the tenement building for hanging washing and sitting in the sun planning your day.

I work in Edinburgh doing Education with people with learning difficulties. I am passionate about dancing, mainly 5 Rythyms at the moment. I have travelled extensively myself and so I like to offer hospitality to people as I have recieved it in so many countries.
