Edinburgh is one of the most charming and visited capital cities of the world.
We offer two centrally located self-catering apartments for up to 4 people. Both enjoy quiet locations, just off the main thoroughfare in Stockbridge, a most sought after part of the city.
This area has a lively village atmosphere and a choice of pubs, good food shops and restaurants. It lies on the edge of the famous Edinburgh New Town (built in the early 1800’s), with the castle and Princes Street just 15 minutes’ walk away. From the nearby bus stop, buses depart every 10 minutes or so to all major sights of the town including Edinburgh University, The International Conference Centre and Ocean Terminal.
The famous Royal Botanical Garden is a short and pleasant walk away. The Water of Leith Walkway, which passes close by, is a haven of peace which will take you through many secret parts of the city. The Scottish National Museum of Modern Art, The Dean Gallery, Fettes College, and the Western General Hospital are close by.
Jill and Johan Hensens live in the Scottish Borders, 1 hour south of Edinburgh. We bought a flat in a friendly and safe part of Edinburgh, in a charming Georgian street, when our daughter Erica went to university there.
Later, the Edinburgh city centre location, with off-street parking, proved ideal for vacation rental. It is close to the main tourist attractions but without the crowds, noise and hassle. This proved so popular that in 2006 we bought Pamela’s apartment in a nearby block, which has a parking garage.
