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.

Great location and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations and location of this home were everything that we needed for our group of 7 adults. The furnishings and beds were top-notch and very comfortable and it is within walking distance of everything along the Royal Mile and right next to the wonderful Holyrood Park. The owner, Mike, was easy to work with and provided good communication. We had an excellent time and only wished we could have stayed longer!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house at the base of Arthur's Seat in a nice neighborhood. Walking distance to the Royal Mile, shopping and groceries. Be advised that the laundry dryer is in the garage (this was a point of confusion for some in our party). The owners, Mike and Cheryl, were very quick to respond to any questions/concerns. Would certainly stay here again and recommend to anyone.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay after your delayed arrival with flights and that you found the house well located and walkable to much of the city. It clearly states in the Guest Information folder and in the Hospitality Content App that the tumble drier is in the garage so hopefully it didn't take you too long to discover it! Thank you for staying in our house and we hope you will stay with us again when next planning an Edinburgh trip.

A wonderful place to stay, cosy, clean and ideally located

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our group, with wonderful views, a large kitchen, several cosy rooms and salon, easy access to the city center, with a taste of country side. The owners are very well organised to facilitate the stay. A great place to enjoy a great city.

We were very happy

  • 5 of 5

As veteran travelers, we four golfers enjoyed this comfortable, very well furnished clean home, more than adequate for our brief stay. Off street parking was very convenient and the view of the park and mountain was interesting, Angela and Mike were extremely helpful and cooperative, overall an A - Plus experience.

Delighted the four of you were comfortable in our Edinburgh house and hopefully enjoyed your golf on the excellent courses within easy reach of Edinburgh.

It was my son's wedding weekend and Michael stayed here with his brother and 2 groomsmen and the 3 girls as we stayed a few doors down the road ! Perfect house for adults and we had 8 people for supper on the Saturday night ! Makes a change to actually have all the accoutrements to be able to self cater ! Great for parking and a huge bottle recycling facility outside😉 Thanks Mike and Cheryl for hosting our wonderful weekend in Edinburgh!
