À propos de ce logement
An ideally situated central flat to enjoy Edinburgh on foot. Close to Waverley Station, Arthur's Seat and The Old Town. You’ll love my place because of location, its light and airy decor. Wooden floor boards, doors and an original fireplace add to the flat's unique charm. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers.
I may be hosting another guest as I have a boxroom. There will always still be plenty of space as it's a big flat.
I hope you love my home as much as I do! Situated in Abbeyhill area, it is an ideal base for exploring Edinburgh and living like a local. The flat has recently been given a modern makeover by myself and brother while retaining many period features. With sanded floorboards and stripped wood doors, shutters, white painted walls and high ceilings, a lovely wet room and a combination of modern and vintage furnishing – it’s a pleasure to call home.

I am from Edinburgh so if you need any info on the city I will try to led a hand.
Abbeyhill is less than a 10 minute walk to many of Edinburgh's key sights including Arthurs Seat, Holyrood Palace, the Scottish Parliament and the bottom of the Royal Mile, and is only a 15 minute walk from Waverley Station and Princes St.
There are a range of independent shops on Easter Road including an Italian Deli/café selling all homemade food, a French patisserie The Manna House, gift and flower shops, and a couple of vintage shops as well as a Post Office and cash-point machines. There are also a number of restaurants within walking distance of the flat and a couple of relaxed bars which serve food.
The flat is also a short stroll from some stunning natural features of Edinburgh: Arthur's seat set in Holyrood Park is just a walk away if you fancy hiking up an extinct volcano or if you'd prefer a stroll on one of East Lothian's wild beaches, a 30 minute bus ride will take you there.
Abbeyhill is within walking distance of the city centre. It is also well served by buses . The number 35 will take you through the city and old town, so your tour of Edinburgh can start here!
If you are arriving from the airport there are 4 options to get to my home. The slow, cheap local bus (Number 35) takes about 1 or 2 hours and is £1.60 but takes you close to my flat. The airport bus (Number 100) is a lot quicker which is £4.50 one way or £7.50 return, I think you have a month to use the return portion. That will take you to Waverley Bridge (which is the last stop), which is a 15/ 20 minute walk to mine or a very quick bus or taxi ride. The correct change is needed on both the number 35 and 100 bus. The third option is to take the tram to York Place . Its £5.50 one way and £8.50 return (which is the last stop) and walk to mine, again which is a 10/ 15 minute nice walk. The tram is good as no matter the traffic its quick and comfy. It's fairly new, so I find it a bit of a novelty. And lastly you could get a taxi all the way - I think this could cost between £30 and £50 at a guess, I've never done it.
Free parking (not easy to find in Edinburgh) is on hand very nearby to my flat.
Enjoy Edinburgh and all it has to offer.

I enjoy life and all that Edinburgh has to offer. I know the city and surrounding areas well and hope that visitors enjoy their time here. Having traveled a lot myself I understand that it is the little things that can make a place feel like home. I am a jack of all trades, masters of none as they say – having worked in the arts, for charities and as an acupuncturist. I believe variety is the spice of life. Plus I am a bit of a culture vulture. I look forward to meeting you and hearing your tales.
