Property description

“Home Central” is a fully owner managed/maintained, spacious one bedroom apartment providing comfortable and modern accommodation (including free WiFi) for up to 4 guests in the heart of Edinburgh's historic Old Town.

This city centre (see our map “photo”) Edinburgh apartment occupies a quiet position, at the rear of a refurbished 19th Century Schoolhouse. Secure entry is through the substantial “Boys” door of the old School building, with an intercom providing additional security.

The apartment comprises an attractive, bright, open plan living room / dining area / kitchen. It's a comfortable living area with plenty of room to kick back and relax after a hard day out seeing the sights or attending a work event. The living room has a large chaise style sofa bed which pulls out very easily to form a good sized (6Ft 8') double bed .

There is a nice sized double bedroom which has a built in mirrored wardrobe with a shelf and hanging storage space for smaller items. The shower room, with toilet and wash hand basin, has been recently modernised. In the hallway there is a deep cupboard which can be used for stowing away suitcases or other luggage.

The modern kitchen is well provided with crockery, cutlery, glasses and kitchenware, a washer/dryer, integrated fridge/freezer, cooker, microwave as well as electrically wired heat & smoke detectors. In the immediate vicinity (1Min) there is a selection of shops, including a late night Tesco Metro (0600-2300). However, for those that prefer to dine out, cosmopolitan Edinburgh is renowned for its large selection of restaurants, with a variety of restaurants / pubs right on your doorstep.

Whenever possible, guests will be welcomed personally at the property for the handover of keys. As you would expect, crisp fresh linen, bath and hand towels are provided for guests. In addition, local information / literature, iPod docking station and a small selection of books, DVDs & board games have been provided for your perusal.

Car: Not Necessary

GETTING TO THE FLAT:

Transport Links are excellent as the apartment is close to several main bus routes which access most areas of the city and beyond.

A) Bus/Airport: The No. 35 Lothian (airport) Bus stops on Chambers Street which is c.5 min walk from the apartment, costs £1.60 & takes c.1Hr. The (airport) Airlink 100 express reaches Waverley Bridge ( 1mile from flat) in c.30-40mins, depending on traffic. During the day this bus leaves every 10mins & costs £4.50

B) Taxis: Are widely available at the airport & cost around £25 (depending on traffic) to get to the flat. Alternatively try calling City Cabs (0131 228 1211) or Central Taxis (0131 229 2468)

C) Trains: Waverley Train Station is a 10min walk away. A taxi to/from Waverley will cost c.£5 to get to the apartment. [There is baggage storage at the train station]

D) Car: Nearby access to the city bypass & motorway networks is very useful. There are metered parking spaces outside, the 24Hr St Johns Hill NCP car park is c.5mins walk away & the Sheriffhall “Park & Ride” has free parking with a frequent £1.60 bus services to/from town

E) Tram: A quick 3 min walk from the airport will take you to the tram stop where you can buy tickets (£5.50 an adult). Trams run every 8-10mins and it will take c. 40mins to get to Princes Street. Alighting here you can then take a Lothian bus (3, 31, or 33) to the Festival Theatre and Drummond Street is just a 2 minute walk from here or you can walk from Princes Street which will take c. 20mins.

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD:

1) Drummond Street: The apartment is very centrally located with all of Edinburgh's tourist attractions within easy reach. Ideally situated for the Festival Theatre (2 min walk), while Edinburgh Castle, the Palace of Holyrood House, Holyrood Park / Arthur’s Seat, Dynamic Earth and the Scottish Parliament are all within 10-15 mins walk. To round off the major sites, the newly revamped National Museum of Scotland is just a 5 min walk away.

###################

2) Edinburgh: The Old Town's cobbled streets, closes (alleyways) and historic Victorian / Georgian architecture make it visually stunning. The grandeur of the New Town, designer/boutique shopping on George Street and an immense choice of restaurants and bars make it a city to suit everyone's taste and budget!

###################

3) The Festival city: Festivals are what Edinburgh does best, with something going on all year round. The high summer Military Tattoo & International and the Fringe are perhaps the best known, however to name but a few Edinburgh hosts the Science festival (April), Film Festival (June), Jazz & Blues Festival (July), Book Festival, Mela (August) and numerous gourmet food events.

- http://www.edinburgh.org/see-do/events/festivals/

###################

4) Entertainment: Edinburgh has a throbbing night-life, is home to various jazz bars (5mins away), comedy clubs, while during the summer street entertainment & busking Bag Pipers are never far away. The nearby Festival Theatre (2min walk) & Playhouse (15-20mins) & host an abundance of cultural events, including operas, ballets & stand up comedy shows.

###################

5) Walking in The Green City: Edinburgh is a fantastic city to visit and is small enough to walk around. Holyrood Park, Princes Street gardens and the meadows (tennis & pitch n putt golf!) are popular places for a stroll, offering a change to the ever present guided historical / ghost tours! For the more energetic, Arthur's Seat (15mins away), an extinct volcano, is crisscrossed with walking trails and is popular with runners / cyclists as well as tourists for some of the best views of the city from Salisbury Crags. In addition, the Botanical Gardens and Edinburgh Zoo, home to the UK's only Giant Pandas, are both worth a visit and are accessible by bus.

###################

6) Running, Edinburgh Marathon: Billed as “the fastest marathon in the UK” and “one of the fastest in the World” Edinburgh is expected to host 40,000+ elite athletes in May 2016.

###################

7) Hogmanay, the Scottish New Year: The Scots word for “the last day of the year.” Enough said!

###################

All in all, in the sunshine there is nothing better than wandering around the streets soaking up the atmosphere. When it rains (which has been known!) you are never far from somewhere interesting to dash into out of the weather. Edinburgh boast a huge number of Art Galleries, Museums, theatres and live music venues as well as Cinema's, indoor shopping centres and entertainment Plaza's - something for everyone!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Both my partner and I were born and brought up in Edinburgh and have spent most of our lives in this beautiful city. I worked for the Scottish Government for many years, in roles ranging from Policy Development to briefing Ministers, however recently have begun to manage a small property portfolio of Holiday Lets. Over the years we have been fortunate enough to have travelled widely (30+ countries and all Continents) and have stayed in a variety of accommodation types ranging from Hotels to Holiday Lets. Which, all in all, I believe makes me pretty sensitive to the holiday experience! My properties are fully owner managed / maintained meaning that I PERSONALLY, 1) respond to each and every email 2) ensure our welcome literature is up to date 3) as a life long Edinburgh resident, am on hand to answer your questions ........ ........ In short this means I’m fully incentivised to ensure that you have a great time & (hopefully) come back again &/or recommend my flats to your friends!

Why the Owner Chose Old Town, Edinburgh, UK:
I was absolutely delighted to be able to buy this property at a time I can only assume the other Holiday Let owners were off on holiday as it’s quite simply perfectly located! The building, an attractive refurbished 19th century Schoolhouse, is located a 5min walk away from the approximate centre of the Royal Mile & as such is close to the dead centre of historic Edinburgh (see our map “photo”). In the immediate vicinity there are a collection of museums, high quality restaurants/pubs, Festival & “Fringe” venues as well as the Festival Theatre. Being so central, the apartment is easy to find be your arrival by train (Waverley Station), airport bus (there are stops nearby) or taxi.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
“Home Central” is fully owner managed / maintained, meaning you’re assured of receiving a personalised service. The flat, which is located at the back (quiet) of a historical building, has an established track record as a successful Holiday Let and I’m glad to say that there have been numerous repeat visits, which I believe is a good sign! From the online / offline feed back that I have received, guests love the flat’s central location and that it is just like the photo’s you see on our listing!........ ........ I speak English; however please note that over the years I have found Google Translate very effective for assisting with queries & handling bookings in other languages.
