Formerly my home, and just revamped top to bottom, you’ll be in one of Edinburgh’s most smart, relaxed and young-at-heart neighbourhoods. Marchmont has always been characterised by academics, professionals and Edinburgh University students living easily side-by-side, and so it remains - Marchmont’s allure is as strong as ever. The streets are peppered with independent shops and eclectic coffee stops so you’ll want for nothing locally. however the blissful green expanse of Bruntsfield Links and The Meadows are two minutes away. Walking across the latter (under the gaze of Arthur’s Seat to the east) will see you in the city centre amidst all of Edinburgh’s attractions in 15 pleasant minutes. Accessed via a clean and well-lit shared stairway (kept secure by an entryphone system), the flat is happily only one flight up. And once inside you’ll appreciate the restrained but luxurious surroundings, the extraordinary period features, the high ceilings and sheer scale of the accommodation.
Apartment on The Meadows, Central Edinburgh - easily walkable to everywhere, moments from Edinburgh’s incomparable Meadows and Bruntsfield Links

Edinburgh residents (and superfans!) who take great delight when guests enjoy the city as much as we do. Easing ourselves gently into semi-retirement means we have time to indulge the passion we have for our home. This means you'll be dealing with us and not a 'manager' - all the better to ensure your time with us is as good as you'd wish.

Very lovely flat and the owners went out of their way for our comfort.
We arrived to find everything we needed, no need to go to store for anything, the comfort of this flat will not be forgotten, great stay.
Well Located & Wonderful Apartment!
We stayed for 9 nights in the apt in Marchmont. We couldn’t recommend it more! It is exactly as described and more. The kitchen is well stocked and the bed is like sleeping on a cloud. The apartment is very clean and comfortable & is well located for exploring Edinburgh on foot.
The owners are very responsive & went out of their way to make sure our arrival went smoothly. They are exceptionally kind. Thank you for a lovely stay in Edinburgh. We won’t hesitate to stay here again.

Great accommodation, very well decorated with care, nothing extra to want for
The property was very very clean with everything you need to have a great holiday. Martin and Weng have thought of just about everything. Even to having multiple clothes drying racks which we haven’t come across yet. This makes it so much better than drying clothes all over the place. Very helpful, even enabled me to watch the AFL grand final live with some technical help. Edinburgh is a great city and staying in the apartment topped it off even more. We were delighted with the special treats on arrival with a personal touch. Thanks again Martin and Weng for enabling us to stay in your apartment which we could tell you take a lot of pride in.
Lovely, comfortable apartment, well renovated with quality finishes.
This is a roomy, high-ceilinged, Georgian apartment with comfortable, well appointed decor, comfortable king size bed, quality fixtures and finishes in the bath and kitchen, all tastefully done without pretension. We loved it! The location is great, you are surrounded by food shops (4 within 3 blocks), and there are two very good restaurants, The Rabbit Hole, and Le Petit Mort, quite close by, Old Town is just a walk across The Meadows. Taxi stand is across Marchmont Road, and bus stops almost right outside. We highly recommend this one!
Wonderful place and area!
Beautifully decorated with very large rooms and high ceilings. Quiet neighborhood, but still has lots of quaint shops, pubs, and restaurants. Easy ten minute walk to downtown area. Martin and Weng met us as soon as we arrived and were very helpful and great hosts! Thanks!
Beautifully decorated and managed flat that was comfortable, warm/helpful hosts & great location.
Martin & Weng were so warm and helpful and have maintained the beauty of this lovely flat. It is elegant and also comfortable, great location just out of the fray. It is immaculate. They have on hand everything guests could want and more. It was a complete pleasure staying there.
The East Lothian coast with its myriad walks, links courses and pretty coastal towns can be reached quickly by car or train, as can the East Neuk of Fife with a string of charming fishing villages.
Edinburgh Airport (with flights to Europe, and multiple daily flights to London) is reached by a cheap & regular bus service stopping at the West End, Princes Street, Waverley Station.
Edinburgh's mainline rail stations serve the entire UK.
Car use isn't required in Edinburgh since everywhere is walkable, but drivers will find paid on-street parking in surrounding streets (Mon-Fri) and free on-street parking a short walk away. Long-term parking is also found in the city's main car parks.
Since Edinburgh is a compact city and a joy to walk around, distances are irrelevant given the proximity to the city centre. However those wishing to explore further afield will find Glasgow, Stirling, Perth and St Andrews within easy reach by car or public transport, with the majestic Highlands and the rural Scottish Borders quite feasible for day trips for those with a car.
