About the Property

Central apartment with easy access to airport and main tourist sites

This modern 2 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment is furnished and decorated to a high standard and will make a very comfortable base for your visit. The 10ft ceilings make it a very light, bright place to enjoy your stay in Edinburgh. Located in the popular West End, this is an ideal place to stay when visiting Edinburgh. It is at the end of the world famous Princes Street and easy walking distance to all attractions. You will find a wide selection of shops, boutiques, cafes, bars, restaurants, pubs, bistros and grocery stores on stepping out the door. Next to the apartment entrance is a Sainsbury Local (grocery store) where you can buy everything you need for your stay.

The lounge/dining room/kitchen area is bright and spacious with wood floors. There 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 an electric hob, oven, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and small washer/dryer - all that you will need to make life easy while on vacation.

Bedroom 1 is spacious with an en-suite shower room. The bed is a US Queen (UK King) size. Free standing closet provides ample storage for all your belongings. This room overlooks the rear of the property ensuring a peaceful nights sleep. There is a flat screen TV in this bedroom. The en-suite shower room is fully tiled and has a heated towel rail and shaver point.

Bedroom 2 has a double bed and is also at the rear of the property.

A full bathroom is accessed off the hallway. This has a shower over the bath tub. Again with heated towel rail and shaver point.

Access to the local bus system is at the front door. This is a wonderful way of getting around Edinburgh - you would expect a bus to take you along Princes Street within minutes (there are apps to give the real time position of the buses!). Haymarket Station is a 5 minute walk and Waverley Station is a 20 minute walk or 8 minutes by taxi. The apartment is less than 7 miles from the Edinburgh Airport and is connected by bus, tram or taxi.

Our apartment is within easy walking distance of the Castle, the Royal Mile and most of Edinburgh's major attractions. Stepping out the main door you will find colourful, stylish boutiques and some of the city's most-loved pubs and bars which combine to create a bohemian feel to this part of Edinburgh. In the surrounding streets, award-winning retailers and restaurants live side-by-side with inspired architectural buildings.

This is a good base for day trips to Glasgow, St Andrews, Stirling and the Borders. Visit one of 12 Edinburgh Festivals - Fringe, International, Books, Film, Art, Jazz and Blues to name just a few. Easy access to the local bus system and taxis if you don't want to walk. Around 30 minutes from the airport by tram, bus or taxi.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Margaret & I met while students in Edinburgh more than 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 want others to share our place and fall in love with Scotland and Edinburgh.

Why the Owner Chose Haymarket, Edinburgh, UK:
We loved the central location in the West End of the city, easy walking distance to everything Edinburgh has to offer and access to the wonderful public transport. The finish of the listed building and apartment is beautiful - completed late 2012.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We aim to provide the best Scottish Hospitality Edinburgh can offer. We want it to be a home from home (although we know it is much smaller than American standards) with everything you need to make your stay very comfortable. Check our many reviews to see what we provide and what other guests thought!
