Overview

About the property

Tranquility amidst Edinburgh's Georgian splendour - lovely five-minute walk to all amenitie

You'll be in Edinburgh's most splendid Georgian location amidst this UNESCO World Heritage site. Here the grand façade is arranged around a lavish circular garden, with restricted road access affording it a surreal sense of calm and silence - perhaps best appreciated after dark under the New Town's atmospheric white street lights.

Despite the peace, bohemian Stockbridge is a delightful 5 minute walk along cobbled streets, whilst George Street's high-end shops and venues are similarly close by to the south.

Accessed via a private gate down a short stone staircase, the front door can be found opening onto a sunny but sheltered courtyard which is a magical spot for al-fresco breakfasting or evening drinks. Once inside the open-plan layout is clean, comfortable and fully-equipped for your stay, with enough period features (high skirting boards and working shutters) to remind you where you are.

A Fabulous Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week in Weng and Martin's apartment. The apartment is incredible...tastefully furnished, spotlessly clean, and extremely comfortable. We always looked forward to coming back to the apartment at the end of a long day, opening a bottle of wine, and relaxing. We cooked our meals most every night in the very well-equipped kitchen. Thrilled to have been provided with a steamer as we steamed mussels for dinner on a couple of occasions. Stockbridge is about a 5 minute walk, and the village has a wonderful butcher, a terrific fishmonger, and an outstanding cheese shop...I J Mellis. The bed was so very comfortable. We always had a great night's sleep, and we awoke feeling refreshed and energized. The bathroom was large with a walk-in shower, plenty of hot water and great water pressure. The location was perfect. In an extremely quiet neighborhood away from the hustle, bustle and noise of tourist central. The apartment is convenient to all the sights, and we walked everywhere. Weng and Martin were gracious, and responded to my emails promptly. Checking in was a breeze. I hope you are as lucky as we were to be able to rent this brilliant apartment during your stay in Edinburgh. Thank you Weng and Martin. Mike and Susan (Dallas, Texas)

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

We just came back after a wonderful week at Weng and Martins place. It was the perfect base for exploring Edinburgh and it was great coming home after a long day and relax in this beautiful apartment.

The kitchen is well equipped and even has a french press which we used every morning. The bed is comfortable and the shower larger than the one we have at home.

We were able to walk everywhere and we especially enjoyed out walk through Dean Village and from there the footpath along the Water of Leith down to the Royal Botanic Garden. As others have mentioned you can do all your grocery shopping in Stockbridge and there are a lot of good restaurants well within walking distance.

So book your stay, pack your slippers and enjoy.

Thank you Martin and Weng

Amazing place in a great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Edinburgh was amazing, due in no small part because we had such a lovely flat to go home to every night. The place was spotless and all the little details like extra dish washing and laundry soap, and a comprehensive handbook with instructions for everything was priceless. The neighborhood is fabulous, and Weng and Martin are responsive and gracious hosts. There was even a bottle of wine and fixings for breakfast waiting for us, which made transitioning into the place effortless. Edinburgh herself is immersed in history and filled with friendly people--I doubt I'd ever tire of walking the city. Needless to say, we will definitely be back, and will certainly book here again.

Great location... lovely venue... gracious hosts!

  • 5 of 5

What more can I say? Martin and Weng went out of their way to make sure our stay was enjoyable, and the neighborhood is absolutely delightful and convenient to the major sites and areas of interest. They have done a magnificent job at equipping the flat in a comformtable and fashionable manner. Highly recommended.

Fabulous place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Recently celebrated my 50th Birthday in Edinburgh staying at this property for 3 nights and could not have wished for a more nicer place to stay. So lovely decorated and furnished it made for a special weekend and somewhere we looked forward to going back to after a day of exploring the city. Martin and Weng were most proficient in providing us with details for our stay and I must say that the place was exceptionally clean, with a bottle of wine and basics to get us started on our arrival which was much appreciated! The apartment is located in a very picturesque, quiet part of the city, convenient for shops and exploring the city on foot. Thank you Martin and Weng ... we do hope we can make a return visit soon. A thoroughly nice place to stay!

The best address, the best flat, the best stay ever...

  • 5 of 5

What a discovery and what a place!  Right at the heart of Edinburgh's smartest neighbourhood this spacious flat wants for nothing.  And despite being at the heart of everything it's whisper quiet, with the best bed ever.  The kitchen is better equipped than our own at home, the bathroom is luxurious with a huge and powerful rain shower, and the main accommodation is just so thoughtfully done and smartly furnished.  Two blocks one way takes you to Stockbridge with its village vibe and two blocks the other to upscale George Street, it couldn't be better placed to walk everywhere.  

We met the hosts on arrival, whose knowledge of Edinburgh was encyclopaedic and who simply could not have done more to welcome us and ensure our happiness, at every stage from booking to leaving.  Exceptional in every way - we're already working out how and when to return.

Location

Nearest Airport
9 Miles
Edinburgh Airport
Nearest Train
1 Miles
Waverley Station
Car: not necessary

The East Lothian coast with its myriad beach walks, links courses and pretty coastal towns can be reached quickly by car or train, as can the East Neuk of Fife with a string of charming fishing villages.

Edinburgh Airport has multiple flights per day to London and European destinations. The airport is easily reached by a cheap and regular bus or tram which stops minutes from the flat. The flat is also handy for both of Edinburgh's mainline rail stations which serve the entire UK comprehensively.

Car use isn't required in Edinburgh since everywhere is walkable, but drivers will find restricted paid parking right outside the front door, or longer-term parking in one of the city's main car parks.

Those wishing to explore further afield will find Glasgow, Stirling, Perth and St Andrews within easy reach by car or public transport, with the majestic highlands and the rural Scottish Borders quite feasible for day trips.
