About the Property

City center location - walk to all attractions but stay in a local neighborhood

Our modern 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom apartment is furnished and decorated to a high standard and will make a very comfortable base for your visit. Located in Tollcross, just on the edge of the Old Town and easy walking distance of the centre, this is an ideal place to stay when visiting Edinburgh.

The apartment is just off Lothian Road where you will find a wide selection of cafes, bars, restaurants, pubs and bistros – something for everyone. A choice of grocery stores, local shops (including a traditional butchers), wine store and French Delicatessen are just around the corner. This is also an ideal location for anyone with business in the city’s financial district, visiting the Edinburgh International Conference Centre or visiting Edinburgh University.

The lounge/dining room/kitchen area is bright and with wood floors. Their is comfortable sofa seating for 4. The dining area has a table and chairs for 4 and is adjacent to the fully equipped kitchen. The kitchen has a gas range, oven, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washer - all that you will need to make life easy while on vacation.

Bedroom 1 has an en-suite bathroom with a shower over the bath tub. The bathroom is fully tiled and has a heated towel rail and shaver point and comes with luxury towels. The bed is a double size with luxury linens. Built in closets provide ample storage for all your belongings. This room overlooks the garden courtyard behind the property and has a small balcony.

Bedroom 2 has a King bed (US Queen) with luxury linens and also overlooks the garden courtyard. A fully tiled Shower Room is accessed off the hallway. Again with a heated towel rail, shaver point and comes with luxury towels.

There is an allocated underground parking space, which in Edinburgh is a huge bonus. Access to the Western Approach Road for an easy way in/out of Edinburgh is just off Lothian Road and allows you to be at the airport in less than ½ hour.

Access to the local bus system is just round the corner from the apartment. This is a wonderful way of getting around Edinburgh - you would expect a bus to Princes Street within 5 minutes (there is even an iPhone App to give the real time position of the buses!). Haymarket train station is a 15 minute walk or a very short 5 minute taxi ride away. Waverley Station is a 25 minute walk or 8 minutes by taxi. Edinburgh airport is less than 7 miles from the apartment.

Included in our rental cost:
* Edinburgh information/support before you even leave for your vacation – basic local information (tailored to your needs) can be shared by e-mail prior to your arrival.
* Fine bed linen, luxury towels, utilities, taxes and WiFi.
* A welcome pack including tea, coffee and milk.
* Tourist Information, a selection of books/Edinburgh guidebooks & maps, binoculars, umbrella and many other thoughtful extras will await you in the apartment.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Margaret & I met while students in Edinburgh over 30 years ago. We have always said we will return here one day after living and working in the South of England, Belgium and most recently in Virginia, USA. We bought this our first flat in 2010 as the first step in realizing our dream. We want others share to our place and fall in love with Scotland and Edinburgh.

Why the Owner Chose Tollcross (Bruntsfield, Edinburgh, Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh, UK):
We bought this apartment after months of watching the Edinburgh market. We loved the proximity to the city and the fact that it is modern so everything works and is efficient. Having an allocated parking space and elevator is a real bonus.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We aim to provide the best Scottish Hospitality Edinburgh can offer and want it to be a home from home (although we know it is much smaller than American standards). It will have everything you need to make your stay very comfortable.
