About the property

Apartment in Edinburgh, Scotland - Perfect Location With Easy Access To Centre Of Town

This property is a short bus ride from the city centre. It is close to many places of interest, The Botanical Gardens, The Royal Yacht Britannia, Portobello Beach, The Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre and Cinema, the Water of Leith, to name but a few. The surrounding restaurants and bars are superb, having atmosphere and character, superb food, and are only a 5 minute stroll away. The shopping centre is well worth a visit, and when the bags get too heavy, head home and unload, ready to start again!

About Diana Callander

I live in the sleepy town of Kelso in the Borders, and work part-time in a local Doctors Surgery. At weekends I love to head up to the city and enjoy the buzz and faster pace of life. I have always loved the area of Leith, mainly for the restaurants and the stunning views, and was lucky enough to find this wonderful converted whisky warehouse 12 years ago. It has all the charm of an old building but a modern interior. I used to have a soft furnishings business so have made all the curtains etc and enjoyed making a few quirky bits and pieces too which can be found in various rooms throughout the apartment.

I love meeting my guests if work allows, and answering any questions they may have. It is very important to me that their stay is the best it possibly can be!

Diana Callander purchased this apartment in 2002

A fabulous comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at 8am after our journey on the sleeper train from London and it was so lovely to unpack and make ourselves at home in this wonderful apartment. Everything was immaculately clean and well maintained and the tea and biscuits were very welcome! Diana could not have done more to make us feel welcome. The apartment was fantastic - lots of space for us and our 3 children (15, 13 11) and only a short bus ride into town. Mimi's is a definite must for breakfast and we had a great meal at the Kings Wark - both within walking distance. Will definitely recommend to friends and family and would love to come back - thank you!

Great apartment in an ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

We were using this lovely apartment for the weekend when my daughter and her family arrived from the US for a 3 week stay. We met them in the airport and went straight to the flat to be welcomed by Diana. She couldn't have been more helpful as we had a change of arrival time at the last minute. The flat was clean and warm and comfortable. Great facilities and plenty of hot water for showers for jet lagged people! We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Thanks Di!

Beautiful apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

The flat is beautiful, well looked after and extremely clean. Diana is the best host you could wish for. Nice, attentive and contactable. It was perfect for a group of 6 with plenty of room left. The flat is not in the centre, is in Leith, but buses run just outside your door and are fairly frequent. We used Uber a lot so cannot comment.

Diana was great, allowing us to leave our luggage in the flat after she had cleaned it as our flight was a but later on the day.

Totally recommend Diana's flat to anyone who is hoping to have a great time in Edinburgh. We would certainly stay there again. Thank you for making our stay special.

Spacious. Well situated. Clean and cheerful.

  • 5 of 5

Diana was so accommodating. She waited outside while guiding us in by phone when we were turned around. The location, while not central, is very convenient to the city centre by bus. We didn't walk it although we saw a sign that said it was 2.5 miles. There were lots of restaurants (Mimi's for breakfast was terrific!) and a Marks&Spencers walking distance to pick up groceries. The apartment itself was very clean and bright. We really enjoyed our stay and would enthusiastically recommend this apartment!

Quirky, quaint conversion in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely short stay in this quirky converted warehouse! Very friendly and efficient owner who helpfully provided useful information before our visit and put herself out to welcome us in person on arrival. The milk & biscuits "welcome pack" was appreciated too. The flat was clean and warm, and the furnishings very tasteful. We all loved the feather duvets - what a treat! The location, near the Ocean Terminal for shopping and cinema, and restaurants aplenty within easy walking distance, was super for our various needs. We wish we had had more time to sample more of them! Free parking on site and very regular bus services into the city and beyond, even on Sunday, was an impressive bonus. We certainly hope to return sometime! Thank you Di for a great mini-break in Edinburgh.

I usually try to accommodate my guests with departure and arrival times, but a rough guide is 10.30am and 2pm. Every booking is different though, depending on travel arrangements and I can store cases if you have a late flight where possible.

Prices very much depend on the amount of people staying and the length of stay.
This flat can sleep from 2 up to 8 people so it is always best to email Diana for a price for your individual party.
