Overview

About the property

Close to the sights, 1 bedroom Edinburgh apartment that sleeps 4.

Newly refurbished, traditional Edinburgh flat (125 years old). Very bright & sunny in a quiet but central location in bustling Tollcross, 10 minutes walk to Princes Street & the delights of the old town. Great cafes, restaurants & bars on the doorstep. Lovely shared garden which is perfect to relax in on a nice summer afternoon, there are deck chairs and a picnic blanket. We aim to provide everything you might need for a short city break - shower wash, shampoo, toothpaste, tea, coffee, milk, etc.

There is one double bedroom with a new 'Premier Inn' queen (5ft) Hypnos bed, and a spacious sitting room with a full size double bed settee, kitchen, shower room and large boxroom/utility. There is room to eat in the sitting room and free wifi is provided. We can be flexible with check-in/out times providing no one is staying before or after guests. If you are travelling by car you are welcome to park your car at our house and we will drive you over to the flat.

Business travellers are also catered for. The Edinburgh International Conference Centre is 5 minutes walk away, as it the main financial services district. Both Edinburgh and Napier Universities are close by, as are some of their halls of residence - ideal for visiting parents or prospective students.

About Clare

I live in the beautiful city of Edinburgh with my husband Mike and 2 daughters, plus 2 step-children, mad Jack Russell terrier and 'lucky to still be alive' hamster.

Love New Zealand, Spain, Italy, New York and the Western Highlands of Scotland. We've been renting our apartment since June 2016 and so far guests seem to love our flat.

Clare purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Clare chose Bruntsfield

In a fabulous, central location, close to all the sights of Edinburgh. I grew up half a mile away so know the area very well.

What makes this apartment unique

Sunny, cosy and very comfortable. An opportunity to experience tenement living in a traditional old Edinburgh property. Lots to do, close to the city centre but 2 minutes walk to the peaceful green expanse of the Meadows and Bruntsfield Links. Our neighbours have been very welcoming and helpful to our guests - not always the case in busy cities!

Fantastic city and accommodations. Enjoyed our stay.

  • 5 of 5

A charming, clean and cozy flat. With all you would need to make meals and snacks. Clare was lovely to have milk and cookies at our arrival after a long day of travel, along with lovely liquors to sample. Location was great with wonderful access to bus lines and good restuarants. We loved this place called Indabas, serving spaniah and south african tappas. A wonderful menue and delicious desserts. Clare and Valerie were both helpful with travel details during our stay. Would definitely book again.

Lovely indeed.

  • 5 of 5

Very pleasant flat, spacious, carefully decorated, close to the center of town. Clare is a very attentive host and is clearly attentive to the details and niceties which will make one's stay very pleasant. We were three -- my wife, my 14-year-old son and I -- and we stayed two nights, but would have loved to have stayed many more.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautifully furnished and decorated. The kitchen was compact but had all the necessary equipment required. We were very comfortable. We had a relaxing stay.

Restaurants close by, plenty of buses to get you into the centre or just locally for the pubs and restaurants.

The owner was great, friendly and extremely helpful. Thoroughly recommend a stay in this property.

Our favorite place in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

Great place with many-thoughtful extras.that really made it special. I would absolutely stay here again. It was the mist comfortable bed we slept in during two weeks in Scotland including much more expensive b&bs. Loved it!!!
