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 space

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.

Guest access

There is a shared garden at the back of the tenement building for hanging washing and sitting in the sun planning your day.

Interaction with guests

I am on hand in Edinburgh to meet and greet you and I will always be available by phone if there are any problems. Occasionally, if I am away, my neighbour will be there to meet and greet you.

Alison's home is bright, spacious, charming, with all the amenities you would ever need. Alison is very flexible and thoughtful - we had a wonderful stay, and would definitely come back again

A lovely flat with great views over the city towards the hills. The flat is very comfortable and nicely decorated, it is very bright and well kitted out. Alison met us there herself and had provided some basic supplies (tea, coffee, cereals) as well as making sure there was fresh milk and bread. She was able to let us know about local parking and shopping. The double glazing worked well and I didn't hear any city traffic at all in the early morning. We had a super time there.

A really nice, spacious apartment with great access to the city centre (a short walk to most main areas of around 20-25 minutes, or the 35 bus is very convenient). Also near to Bruntsfield, which has lovely independent shops, and a large area with a cinema and restaurants and a trampoline park (which we didn't use, but others might enjoy!). There was a Fringe guide in the flat which was a lovely touch, and bread, milk etc there on arrival. Alison was very helpful and the whole trip went very smoothly.

Even though Alison was not present in Edinburgh at the time of our arrival, she sorted out everything and our stay was without any problems. The flat was in top condition, everything was super clean and charmingly decorated. The excellent bus service to the airport and to the city only made our stay more pleasant. Would highly recommend.
