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!

Great place to stay in Edinburgh

This is a wonderful place to stay in Edinburgh. The apartment is large, comfortable, and well-equipped, and conveniently located to central Edinburgh attractions and train stations. Clare was a congenial and informative host. Don’t hesitate to book this place!

Great location!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location right off one of the main streets to city central. Quiet at night, felt safe. Property was super clean and we had everything we needed in the kitchen. Clare was wonderful. She left us tea, coffee, cookies and milk to start our trip. We had one light go out in the bathroom and she was immediately there to fix it. Loved our stay in Edinburgh.

Comfortable, pretty flat in a convenient neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This is a great choice for guests who want to explore Edinburgh, as it's within easy walking distance of Princes Street, the Royal Mile, the University, and the beautiful park known as the Meadows. The neighborhood, Tollcross, seems to be popular with students and is nothing posh, but we always felt safe. As the flat is on the ground floor at the front of the building, we did have some street noise but found it did not affect our sleep in the very comfortable bed. There is a small kitchen that we made use of for tea and simple breakfasts. The flat's decor is pleasing, and we found everything very clean.

Clare, the owner, is most welcoming and provides a number of suggestions for places to eat nearby, many of which we tried and loved during our four-day stay. Indabas, a tapas restaurant just a block away, was one we especially enjoyed, and we also recommend a leisurely breakfast across the street at Cafe Class. Bennet's is a lovely old-fashioned pub just a block away.

All in all, this was one of the best decisions we made on accommodations during more than two weeks of travel in the U.K. Many thanks, Clare!

Absolutely lovely property and great location!

  • 5 of 5

My mum and I stayed at Clare's apartment over Easter weekend. We were extremely happy with the standard and cleanliness of the property, as well as the little touches - essentials like milk, butter, jam, tea, coffee, shower gel, shampoo and condition left for us to use, as well as liquor and whiskey to try. The kitchen is very well stocked, it had everything and more we needed to cook an evening meal. The property was quite with no noise from the neighbours and little road noise. There are various local supermarkets within a short walking distance and a bus route just at the end of the road, making travelling around the city a doddle. There a restaurants, cafes and bars within walking distance too. We loved staying here and would thoroughly recommend to everyone!
