This is a beautiful 2 bedroom flat that's very close to the centre of town. South facing bedrooms are bright and warm with spectacular views of Salisbury Crags. The open plan living space is so comfortable and sociable that one naturally feels at home here. It easily sleeps 6 people, a great place from which to enjoy Edinburgh.
This is a carefully modernised traditional Edinburgh tenement flat built in the 19th century. The open feel of its architecture and natural light combine to make this a very pleasant space to spend time. It boasts many original features including large windows, high ceilings, cornicing, wood panelling and the kind of quirky layout that has been superseded by uniform blandness in modern buildings. It also boasts modern creature comforts such as gas central heating and unlimited hot water on demand from a combi-boiler, double glazing, modern fitted kitchen and bathroom, and good quality beds.
Best of all this flat is really quiet, almost peaceful, despite being less than ½ a mile from the Royal Mile and a mile from Princes Street and Waverley Train Station.
This is a real Edinburgh home, the perfect base and just a short walk from the city centre. I bought it with my dear friend David who adores this flat. One day he will live in it but for now work forces him to be in London so it's available for you to enjoy.
Montrose Terrace is walking distance from nearly all the major sights. It is inside the controlled parking zone but less than 5 minutes walk from free on-street parking; ideal if you're travelling by car. If you don't fancy walking then the award-winning local bus service runs dozens of buses an hour. They include the no.35 which passes right by the flat and is the only route that goes up the Royal Mile.

DISCOUNTS & CHARGES
Some discounts are applied automatically. For example, if you stay for a week you get one night free and if you stay for a month you only pay for 3 weeks. AirBnB's system is good but not perfect so I have to apply some discounts manually. In particular if more than 4 people people stay in this flat for a week or more then I will manually apply a discount to the price you are quoted.
When you enquire about renting this flat I will send you a special offer with the correct price. Similarly, if you want an extra bed and bedding to be provided beyond the 2 included beds there is a one-off charge that I will apply manually. Regardless the length of your stay an extra single bed and bedding costs £15 while a double bed and bedding costs £25.
NO smoking inside the flat or stairwell.
If you have to smoke please go outside.
Please check if anyone needs to use the bathroom before taking a bath or shower.

If you have problems or questions call me on (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) or pop over to see me - I live 5 minutes walk down the road at 182/10 Easter Road.
Be nice and enjoy your stay.
The flat is less than a mile from Waverley Train Station; you can walk, catch the no.113, X26 or X44 bus, or jump in a taxi.

SETTLING INTO THE FLAT:
I will meet you when you arrive to hand over 2 or 3 sets of keys, show you round the flat and answer any questions you may have about the accommodation, location and Edinburgh in general. After that you're welcome to call or email if you have any queries or issues but I will leave you to enjoy the flat in private. You will get my email address when your booking is confirmed, my phone number is on all the key fobs and I live 5 minutes walk down the road.

Hello, I'm Zeb.
I'm a 38 years old graduate. I divide my year between organising music festivals, teaching massage and travelling. When not working I play squash, listen to music, watch movies and read a lot. Also enjoy DIY and have done a lot of work on my flat over the last few years - it's now a really comfortable place to spend time. I like my home to be quietly sociable and welcoming, if that sounds good to you please come and stay here.
