A cosy one-bedroom flat on the first floor of a traditional tenement building with views to the sea. This bright comfortable flat is 100 yards from Portobello beach and promenade but only 20 minutes by bus to the city's attractions and transport links.
The flat consists of a living room with modern kitchen area, a bathroom with bath and shower over, and a double bedroom with ample wardrobe and drawer space.
There is a hob oven, microwave, kettle, toaster, fridge, freezer and washing machine in the kitchen area. I can provide hanging space in the wardrobe, ironing board and a hair-dryer. There is wireless broadband and a radio but please note there is no television. There is a back green (shared garden) where you may dry your washing or relax at a table. I provide clean bedding and towels according to your needs. You will find a shop at the top end of the Kings Road to the right of the traffic lights that sells basic groceries and newspapers and a community bakery selling fresh bread and pastries. There is a large supermarket towards the centre of Portobello less than 3 minutes walk away.
Interaction with guests
Access to the flat is via a key-safe outside the door to the flat - I will provide details of the safe code close to the date of your arrival. I can be contacted by email or mobile telephone. I live in Portobello and am generally available if you have any difficulties during your stay.
Other things to note
I can be flexible with arrival and departure times according to your travel plans and if you wish to drop off luggage for instance.
The flat is on the first floor - it is necessary to climb approximately 20 steps as there is no lift.
My flat is not suitable for children and infants.
I am happy to discuss terms for longer bookings or bookings at short notice.
I really hope you will enjoy your stay at my flat in Portobello and that you will want to visit Edinburgh again in the future. However I would be grateful if you would observe the following during your stay:
There is absolutely no smoking in the flat or common areas such as the staircase.
The flat is part of a tenement building so please respect my neighbours by keeping noise to a minimum late at night.
My neighbour sleeps below my sitting-room so I ask you not to play loud music or be otherwise noisy in this room after 10.30 at night.
If you are arriving late or leaving early I request that you do not use the sitting room/kitchen after midnight or before 7am to avoid disturbance.
You are welcome to use any of the kitchen facilities but please wash up and tidy away after you have used them.
