About the property

A 1 bedroom flat sleeping 4 people a 15 minute walk from Princes Street

The property has just undergone a complete refurbishment and as such it has a fantastic fully equipped kitchen and open plan living room with patio doors opening out directly above the flowing water below. The wall-mounted flat screen TV provides you with multiple digital channels and there is a DVD player. There is a stylish, fully tiled shower room with twin head shower. There is one double bedroom and a second bedroom with bunk beds is available if required.

The location is wonderful as you feel as though you are out in the country however you are only a 15 minute walk from the hustle and bustle of Princes Street. In the immediate vicinity there is an excellent selection of wonderful bars, restaurants and shops.

great location in Stockbridge. Quiet, pretty river view, comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The pictures on the website accurately describe the apartments. Great restaurants are nearby, and small grocery stores are close if you want to prepare meals in the apartment. I enjoyed the walk through New Town to get to the Royal Mile. We enjoyed the Leith River walk just outside the apartment as well. We would book this apartment again

Beautiful apartment in a beautiful part of town

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was ideal for our holiday and we couldn't have asked for more. Francois was great with the communication, and the place was very well presented and clean. Stockbridge is the perfect area to stay in as we were surrounded by lots of cool cafes, bars and restaurants - and while the area has a quiet and residential feel to it, we were just a 10 minute walk to the vibrant New Town. Very enjoyable trip indeed, thanks again.

Great Stockbridge Flat

  • 5 of 5

Two of us stayed at the flat in December. Welcomed by Francois on arrival and shown flat and secure parking (5 minute walk). Great location, very close to the centre of Stockbridge, bars, restaurants, shops and Sunday market. The flat looks directly down onto the Water of Leith complete with bubbling river with your own Heron and Ducks. 15minute walk (uphill, you'll never be fitter) to Princes Street and all the central Edinburgh attractions, trams to the airport and mainline rail stations. Flat very warm, comfortable and well equipped. It's a good one.

Beautiful apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment. It was light, clean, and nicely decorated, with beautiful views of the Water of Leith. Edinburgh New Town is just a short walk away and the property is so close to all that Stockbridge has to offer. Good communication with the owner too. Thank you.

Modern, clean and central

  • 5 of 5

Francois was very helpful upon arrival with a personal review of the lay-out and convenient details about the property and environs. Sitting room area was comfortable, TV was handy, and wi-fi was great. Two sets of keys made it nice, too.

Kitchen was complete - equipped with whatever we required. Includes all-in-one washer/dryer (strangely noisy all during the dry cycle - air in the drain/water pipe?) which was handy. Bath towels were fluffy and ample. Bathroom has warming towel bar, very effective shower, limited storage surfaces. Bed and pillows were very comfortable and bedroom had superior storage and lighting. The double bed is situated in a nook so one side of it is against the wall.

The location is superb - quiet yet extremely close to many cafes, pubs and stores. The flat overlooks the Water of Leith which is lovely, and immediately accessible to the path along it (we walked it all the way to Leith to go on the HRY Brittannia). We walked numerous times down to Princes St. and the Royal Mile area but there are busses as well. Excellent neighborhood from which to explore, and to come home to at the end of a long day. We highly recommend, and would not hesitate to stay here again!
