Beautiful, spacious and recently-renovated traditional tenement flat. This advert is for a private double bedroom, if you book through this advert you will be sharing the communal areas. If you'd like to rent the whole flat exclusively please go to this advert:
Perfect for seeing Edinburgh and particularly the festivals - it is just 10 minutes walk across the Meadows to Bristo Square which is the epicentre of the Fringe.
This is a traditional 19th century Edinburgh tenement flat. Ground floor and opening directly into the garden, it's been carefully modernised to retain many original features yet be warm, comfortable and well equipped. It is also tastefully decorated with several examples of original artwork by a local artist.
This bedroom is nice and big with a very tall window and comes with a double bed.
The kitchen is large, light, modern and well-equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine, fitted gas hob, electric fan oven and even a pantry. It has a huge designer dining table which quickly became the social focal point of the flat. This is even more true in summer as the kitchen opens directly into the SW facing garden.
The bathroom is modern with constant, unlimited hot water. The flat has GCH, doubling glazing and broadband internet.
There is a sitting room but we keep it for private use because we often have to store things in it. Besides which the kitchen is the natural social space and where we spend most time.
Bedding: The room comes with a double bed complete with fresh bedding and towels. I can provide further futon mattresses and extra sets of bedding for a small fee.
Marchmont Crescent is a quiet residential street just away from the main roads which connect that part of town. It is is a very desirable, listed area of Edinburgh.
We are less than a mile from the Royal Mile along which you'll find Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace and Parliament. Museums, art galleries, shops, cafes and bars are all easy to reach.
Perfect for the festivals; quick walk across the Meadows and you're at Assembly, The Speigel Garden, Udderbelly, The Pasture, McEwan's Hall, Gilded Ballon, Pleasance Dome. A few more minutes and you'll reach Underbelly and Pleasance Courtyard and that's the vast majority of the Fringe.
There's a Scotmid (which is the Scottish verson of Co-op supermarket) 50m away. Just across the road from that is a great pub called the Earl of Marchmont. Also close by is a hardware store - very useful if you've got a show.
There are loads of fruit and veg shops, the area is known for the having the best fresh produce in Edinburgh. If that's not your thing then there are also pizza, fish n chips, Chinese and Indian take aways. And Sweet Melinda's is a decent restaurant well worth visiting.
I prefer to operate a 3 night minimum stay over bank holiday weekends but am happy to discuss all stays.
The price includes bedding, clean sheets and basic breakfast.
We are very strict that smoking is not allowed in the flat however the flat has direct access from the kitchen into the shared rear garden and also a private front garden.
Please be courteous to neighbours and other guests.
Absolutely NO smoking inside the building (there is a garden).
Please do your washing up and keep the flat (especially communal areas) tidy.
Report any issues promptly so we can sort them out.
There is only one bathroom so please check if anyone needs to use it before jumping in the shower.
And do enjoy Edinburgh.
