2 bedroom apartment, double sofa bed, sleeps up to 6.
I'm Gareth and I own and manage this gem of a holiday apartment, recently renovated in a great location I'm privileged to be able to host guests from across the world and accommodate them in Edinburgh. I love meeting new people from all walks of life and hearing their stories.
Gareth purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why Gareth chose New Town
I was looking to buy a city centre property in need of renovation and I came across the flat in 2011, it hadn't been maintained for atleast 25 years. I seen that it had masses of potential but it was a huge challenge...Great location and great character!
What makes this Apartment unique
The property was built in 1792 when Edinburgh's 'New Town' was under construction. It still retains all the original internal doors and floorboards which I restored. Along with the exposed original stonework wall, this property has a great feel to it. Put together with the location its a stunning place to take in the city!

The best location
This apartment is so well equipped and it is in such a great area of Edinburgh. Gareth was great to deal with and met us there at our convenience. The extra touches of a loaf of bread and milk was greatly appreciated as we did not have to dash off to get any groceries. The beds were great, wonderful hot water in the shower and clean as a whistle. All in all, a perfect place to stay in Edinburgh. The choices of restaurants on Rose Street alone was amazing. Thank you for a wonderful three days in your beautiful city!!
Awesome place next to the castle!
This place is amazing. It is comfortable, spacious and very clean. We walked to the castle and there are lots of shops and restaurants next to the flat. Gareth is a great host, he gave us great directions and recommendations. He even left some basic staples and food ready for us. I would definitely recommend it.
Awesome apartment in Edinburgh
We had a great stay at this apartment. Rey comfortable and clean. It was our first trip to Edinburgh and this hotel was very well located to all the sites and great restaurants.
Staying on Rose Street gives the experience of inner city life in one of the many historic areas of Edinburgh. The apartment is within walking distance of most places tourists want to see. Just on Rose Street itself are plenty of eateries, shops and places to grocery shop if you want to eat in occasionally. Although located a story above a busy, mostly pedestrian street, when you are inside the apartment, bedrooms are quiet and you return to a relaxing cocoon after a day of exploring. The owner’s attention to details makes it a welcoming experience from the modern appliances, comfortable furniture and beds, cleanliness, starter foods, and responsiveness to guest inquiries.(There is also a generous amount of paper products and other supplies.) After dropping off our luggage, we were glad to “lease” a space for our car at the Omni Center car park, about 15 minutes away. Gareth met us at the apartment before the usual check in time, and carried in our very heavy luggage. (Note: it is a first floor walk up, and nicely all on one level.) Staying at the Rose apartment for four nights was a great way to end our three week road trip adventure in Scotland.
I wish they had 6 stars!!!
I have been staying in HomeAway apartments for about a decade and have had many great experiences. This apartment was one of the very best. It's always a bit of a concern to stay right in the hear of a city, but the way the apartment is situated has the bedrooms are away from the street noise and we had no issues sleeping. Edinburgh is such an amazing city and this apartment was literally close to everything. Gareth was very quick to respond to questions and there was everything we needed to get our trip started when we arrived. I really cannot recommend this place enough.
Spotlessly clean, amazing location!
We had a fantastic time in Gareths apartment, it's absolutely beautiful and located a stone's throw from everything.
Situated right in the heart of Edinburgh city centre, a perfect location for exploring the city.
