Overview

About the property

Classic cobbled street in Edinburgh's laid back West End

The apartment is beautifully decorated and is packed full of Scottish fabrics, original Scottish paintings and drawings, warm colours and heaps of personality. It's a great base from which to explore Edinburgh on foot, and once you're worn out from a great day of shopping or sightseeing there's a fab kitchen in the apartment and a wood burning stove for a cosy night in. For the more energetic just dump the shopping bags, get the 'glad rags' on and walk a few hundred yards to some of the best bars and restaurants that Edinburgh has to offer. After a few nights here you're almost guaranteed to feel Scottish and you certainly won't want to leave!

You enter the traditional 'shared stair' at pavement level and make your way up the original, stone steps to the apartment door on the 2nd floor (the top). There are two bedrooms; one very large and one large. Both rooms can be set up either as twin beds or double beds (Super King size and King size). The beds are naturally 'Luxury Hotel' standard. The master bedroom has a lovely dressing table with an illuminated magnifying mirror for the ladies.

There is a very well equipped large dining kitchen with oven, hob, microwave and everything you need to cook up a feast! It also includes a dishwasher, washing machine and digital radio.

The Lounge is beautifully decorated and features a wood burning stove and original fireplace. There is wifi, digital cable TV and a Bluetooth speaker for your entertainment and the side board is crammed full of fun board games for a lively night in! There is also a sofa bed available in the lounge for larger groups.

The bathroom is a warm and welcoming room with its large tub, big traditional shower head, stone tiles, warm colours and the all important under floor heating!

About Andy Murray

I've been involved with property in Edinburgh for 12 years and have always loved Georgian and Victorian architecture with all it's grandeur! I have renovated and upgraded many original Edinburgh properties but the 'Snug' is my first Holiday Apartment and I absolutely love it. I live a short walk down the hill from the apartment in an old townhouse in Stockbridge with my wife Rebecca and our 2 little boys. If I ever need a quiet sit down I sneak off to the Snug and hide!! My father in law is a famous Irish poet (Michael Longley) and my sister in law is a well known Scottish/Irish painter and most of the books are Michael's collections and the art on the walls are Sarah Longley originals or sketch work from her bigger collections. Also, if you'd like a kilt made whilst you're here - my brother in law is a kilt maker!!

Why Andy Murray chose Edinburgh

The West End of Edinburgh is a hidden gem of a place, full of boutique shops, delis, coffee shops, proper pubs and restaurants and it just so happens to be less than 5 minutes walk from Princes' Street. It's such a great location that as soon as I saw the apartment I knew it had to be shared! Doing interiors is one of my passions and I was able to cut loose on the William Street Snug with Georgian colour schemes and gorgeous Scottish tartans and tweed textiles and original Georgian walls are ideal for hanging great art!

Loved the Snug!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to explore Edinburgh from! The neighborhood is really great; close enough for walking and access to transit but just removed enough to get a break from the tourist crowds. It didn't bother me, but be aware that there are several pubs/restaurants downstairs that can be noisy, particularly Teuchters! The flat is beautifully decorated and homey with everything you need. Overall, loved it, and Andy is very responsive to inquiries.

Excellent location, beautiful apartment, everything you could want.

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier. Edinburgh is a great place to visit and this apartment is an easy walk to everything. One block to the tram to the airport, all central bus lines near by. Every facility is in good working order and Andy Murray is easy to deal with. One of our best experiences with VRBO.

Great apartment, in a great Location

  • 4 of 5

Very cosy well serviced apartment. Lots of lovely touches making it a perfect home from home. Would recommend,. Our group ranges in age from 33 to 75 and we all had an equally lovely experience! We were out most of the day but enjoyed going back after dinner to sit comfortably, listen to music and enjoy a glass of wine before bed.

Wonderful little snug!

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled once we entered the flat. Clean, well decorated and toasty warm. Perfect place for our family of four to end our Christmas holidays. We watched fireworks from the flat on New Years Eve. We will def. be back and highly recommend.

I almost hate to say this

  • 5 of 5

But if everyone knew what a great place this was we would not ever be able to get another booking. Clean, comfortable, beautiful and in a perfect location, we all loved it! The owners were so helpful and available. If we get the opportunity to come back to Edinburgh we know we want to stay here. My first experiene with HomeAway and now I am hooked. Thanks Andy for a wonderful and gracious welcome to Edinburgh!
