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

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.

Fantastic property for large groups, great kitchen

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The bedrooms were lovely with very comfortable beds (better than home!), the kitchen had everything we needed (we cooked almost all meals), and any minor issues were dealt with promptly. The area was quiet and the views were fantastic. We would certainly stay there again, and we highly recommend this property if you are a large group.

The only recommendations we might have are for the house book to include more information on heating and appliances, but everything else was great.

Perfect locality, quality accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of seven adults from New Zealand attending a wedding in Edinburgh. Everything was either an easy walk away or a short Taxi ride. We were impressed with the quality fittings and furnishings in the apartment and every detail had been covered. Thank you Mike for a wonderful stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We are delighted that, having travelled so far, our house worked well for you as a convenient home for the wedding and visit to Edinburgh. We hope you will stay with us again if planning a return trip to Edinburgh but suspect this will not be a regular trip from New Zealand!

Superb Town House!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend! Location is superb, within reach of everywhere, old town, groceries, arthur's seat is practically within backyard. Spacious for us of 7 people, and full if amenities. Practically like a home with abundant spaces and full of amenities, even furnished with Christmas decoration when we stayed which was a nice touch during the holiday season.
