Unlike the position shown on the Airbnb map, this duplex apartment is at a prime location right in the heart of Edinburgh's Festival Area, one block from the Edinburgh Pleasance Festival Theatre! It is ideal for young and active adventurers who love to explore the city and all the cool events.

The apartment is in a 60s Barbican-style building and extends over two floors (not suitable for people with mobility constraints!) with a bright and sunny south-facing living room, a large modern kitchen and full-size bathroom on the top floor and two spacious and quiet double bedrooms and a large entrance area on the ground floor and parking in the courtyard! The layout maximizes privacy and easily accommodates groups of up to 8 friends or family, sharing the space in comfort.

You are right in center of all the festivals, cool events, parties, live performances and local attractions and at the same time only minutes from Arthur's Seat and Holyrood Park with bike paths running in front and back of the house, enjoying unparalleled access to nature.

The apartment has been brand new furnished and improved with sustainability in mind so now even the electricity is 100% renewable. It comes with:

· A bright and sunny south-facing living room with king size sofa bed, comfy armchair and dining area

We provide fresh pure cotton bedding, fluffy fresh towels, a selection of organic body washes, shampoos, conditioners, face wash, makeup remover, maps, city and event guides, umbrellas, etc.

Response from Green:
I have never claimed on a security deposit before and hope to not have to do this again in the future, however I have never had someone before leave meat in a pool of liquor and wine directly on a wood table and create so much damage to my place. To make things worse, you proceeded to rate my apartment 1* across the board. Please see below a summary of the damages left by your group. It was submitted to Airbnb a couple of hours after your checkout and it was stated that you have received a copy: "Unfortunately the apartment was left in a very dirty state and required 2 hours of extra cleaning. However, I am paying for that and would only like to ask the guest for compensation on two large items of furniture in the living room: - A Dwell designer coffee table that was left with water, wine and liquor pooled on it and with meat food items placed directly on the table. This created significant damage to the finish of the table and because the smell entered the wood grain, I will have to replace it. A new replacement table would cost GBP 499 (URL HIDDEN) however I will look for a cheaper replacement and would like the guest to contribute 10% of the table value: 50GBP -An IKEA Friheten sofa bed that is less than 3 months old was stained with wine or some other dark liquid. A new sofa would cost GBP399 (URL HIDDEN) replacing the covers would cost at least GBP120 (URL HIDDEN) and the lowest quote to have the upholstery professionally cleaned is GBP58. The sofa was in like-new state before the damage and I will try my best to get it cleaned for future guests. I would appreciate if the guest could contribute less than half of the cost of the cleaning: GBP28

Fantastic location, close enough for walking to centre but far enough away for a quiet night sleep. The owners went above and beyond to accommodate us. Amazing communication. The apartment itself was spotless and large. I have no hesitation in recommending or arranging to stay here again.

Had a great stay at Lidia's flat. Spotlessly clean and everything as described. Nice little touches like fresh milk and muesli made our move in very easy. Would highly recommend.

We loved our stay here! We only wish it could have been longer. The apartment was actually much bigger than we thought it would be from the photos. Such cool decor and design of the space. Most of Edinburgh's famous places to see are within walking distance. You can discover many different sections of the city as you walk through them to get to the Royal Mile and other notable places in Edinburgh. We'd would stay here again!

Lovely couple and easy to communicate through air bnb. Both Jay and Lydia are friendly and helpful. Perfect location for most of the tourist attractions, groceries and restaurants. However, there were some issues with amenities. But my overall experience is satisfied and highly recommend for other travellers.

Lidia and Jay are wonderful hosts - warm, welcoming and helpful. They respond quickly to questions and offer good suggestions about Edinburgh activities and attractions. The apartment is bright, spacious and well equipped. It's in a great location for walking around Edinburgh. If lucky enough to get back to the city, I'd stay here again.
