About Mike and Cheryl Cran

We are Mike and Cheryl Cran who own the house. We lived in Edinburgh when we were first married but left over 20 years ago because of our jobs.

We love Edinburgh and fell in love with this house as soon as we saw the stunning views.

We use it whenever we can between short term lets and trust you will enjoy its beautiful location in the heart of the city and all that Edinburgh has to offer as much as we do every time we visit.

We live 400 miles away and so have an Edinburgh host, Angela.

Our profile photo was taken in July 2015, just after we moved into the house and staying in Edinburgh while supporting our daughter playing Lacrosse for Scotland in the Under 19s Lacrosse World Championships.

Mike and Cheryl Cran purchased this house in 2015

Why Mike and Cheryl Cran chose Edinburgh and Lothians

The views from a townhouse set in the city are stunning - virtually rural - and yet you are only 6-7 bus stops or a 15 minute walk from the city centre and all that Edinburgh has to offer as a capital city.

What makes this house unique

A small south facing garden with Holyrood Park over the garden wall provides stunning views, an excellent walking / exercise area and without the normal city noise.

The efficiency of a modern house providing warmth and efficient showers with copious hot water.

A garage and second parking space are invaluable in a capital city centre property.

All that a capital city centre offers close at hand but with the benefit of a near "rural" setting.

Excellent property in a great location

The property is one of the best rentals we have stayed in, it was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The correspondence from the owners was first class and extremely informative. The house was in a great location and perfect for 7 friends wanting a special New Year experience. Fabulous....

Superb house in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for four nights and had a wonderful stay. The house was beautifully clean on our arrival and was perfect for our needs. We were a party of three and had lots of space to spread out. The kitchen was very well equipped and we enjoyed eating in on a couple nights. The lounge faces on to Holyrood Park with lovely views across to Salisbury Crags. The location of the house is very special being so close to Arthur's Seat and only a short walk from the centre of Edinburgh. We enjoyed walking up Arthur's Seat with its great panoramic views of Edinburgh, Leith, Portobello and out across the Firth of Forth. We would love to return to the house in the future. Thanks to Mike and Cheryl for helping us make the most of our stay; also to Angela who was there to welcome us on our arrival.

Spacious place with a fantastic view

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

This property has it all! Plenty of room for all your family. We were a party of 7 and two dogs and never felt cramped. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and eating in the large dining room. We also liked being able to walk and then hike Arthurs Seat, and walk right to the royal mile. I can't say anything negative about the property, it was exactly what we needed and were sad to leave it.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind review. We are delighted our Edinburgh house worked for all the family and dogs and that you enjoyed and made good use of its location beside Holyrood Park to climb Arthur's Seat and walk to The Royal Mile. We hope you will stay with us again if you make a return visit to Edinburgh.

Lovely house with fabulous views

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Stayed for 4 nights in a party of 6 adults to attend a family wedding. The house is lovely and clean, and well suited to our group's needs. We arrived late and didn't meet the host, Angela, but the access instructions were easy to follow. The house backs onto Holyrood Park and has great views of Arthur's Seat. We were grateful to Mike and Cheryl for the flexibility they gave us concerning our leaving time, and for the speed with which they repaid the deposit. Unfortunately we were so busy with the wedding and meeting other relatives we didn't have time to do much sightseeing.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind review. Pleased all the wedding arrangements went well but clearly you need a return visit to do Edinburgh justice. When you do we hope you will come and stay with us again.

Fabulous townhouse and perfect location. Views outstanding.

  • 5 of 5

Mika and Cheryls townhouse was perfect for our weekend stay in Edinburgh. We were greeted on arrival by a very welcoming host named Angela who looks after their house. First impressions were" Immaculate". Followed by stunning, spacious and overwhelmed by the spectacular view considering we were also walking distance (20 mins) from the city centre. The townhouse is on 4 levels. Being able to sit out in the beautiful garden was also an added bonus... thanks to the weather obviously... Our kids spent most of the time on the top level watching films and chilling out thanks to the wi fi. Our husbands enjoyed 2games of gplf at nearby courses and took in a game of football at the local football ground at Easter Rd. Which was also a short stroll away. While us girls enjoyed shopping in the city an evening at the cinema and some even ventured up Calton Hill. All in all a perfect weekend over too soon. We look forward to renting it again.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind review. I will pass on your "Immaculate" to Angela who we are reliant on in preparing the house for guests. Delighted you found the house suitable for your mixed generation party (the second sitting room and TV avoids TV remote wars!) and the house well located to walk to the city centre, Easter Road and the cinema. Well done for climbing Calton Hill. Next time you come and stay you can climb Arthur's Seat and Salisbury Crags!
