Description

The Holiday Let is a fully owner managed/maintained, spacious, 2 bedroom modern apartment with fabulous panoramic views of Holyrood Park. The flat benefits from a lift/elevator, free WiFi, free on street parking and is just 5mins walk from Scotland's premier tourist hub, namely the Holyrood Palace / Scottish Parliament / Arthur's Seat / Royal Mile / “Dynamic Earth” area.

This central Edinburgh apartment (see our map “photo”) occupies a quiet, sunny position on the fourth floor (easily accessed by lift/elevator or stairs from the lobby) of a recently built (2004) development. A 30 second walk takes you to the amenity intensive London Road, which boasts fantastic transport links to the principal tourist attractions as well as the scenic City centre. There is a Secure (buzzer) Entry System with an intercom providing additional security, while the common areas are well lit, cleaned weekly and kept in good repair.

There is a Secure (buzzer) Entry System with an intercom providing additional security, while the common areas are well lit, cleaned weekly and kept in good repair.

The apartment is situated pretty much as close as you can get to all the historic Old Town sites and visitor attractions in Edinburgh with FREE on street parking. Most of central Edinburgh is unfortunately (expensive!) metered parking zones.

The apartment comprises an attractive, large (c.400SqFt), light, bright open living / dining room with plenty of space to kick back and relax after a hard day out seeing the sights or attending a work event. The living room has a comfortable sofa bed, which pulls out very easily to form a good sized (6Ft 8') double bed, a separate 3 seater couch and comfortable chairs. In addition there is a modern flat screen TV with DVD player (DVD library provided), as well as an iPod docking / speaker / charger. The dining table comfortably seats 6, with (double glazed) picture window views of Holyrood Park to be enjoyed over breakfast / diner.

The modern kitchen is well provided with crockery, cutlery, glasses and kitchenware, a cooker, washer/dryer, dish washer, fridge, freezer & microwave as well as electrically wired heat & smoke detectors. In the vicinity there are a number of smaller shops as well as (5mins walk) the substantial Meadowbank shopping centre that includes a Sainsburys, TK Maxx and other outlets. However, for those that prefer to dine out, cosmopolitan Edinburgh is renowned for its large selection of restaurants, with a variety of restaurants / pubs nearby.

The sizeable master bedroom with King sized bed, built in wardrobes and table & chairs to quietly relax in. There are unobstructed views of the beautiful 650 acre Holyrood Park, home to the Palace of Holyrood House (the Queen's official residence in Scotland), which is just a 5min walk from the flat.

The second bedroom is similarly spacious with 2 single beds, built in double wardrobes and, like the whole apartment, benefits from double glazing. The bathroom, which has recently been modernised, comprises of a toilet, wash hand basin & bath with modern shower / shower screen. The separate shower room has also been modernised and has a shower cubicle, with toilet and wash hand basin.

A 30 second walk takes you to the buzzing London Road's shops/pubs and, as a major bus nexus, gives unrivalled access to a host of bus routes to main tourist destinations (Princes Street in 5mins, the Old Town, New Town, the Royal Yacht, Edinburgh Zoo etc) and shopping destinations. While a 5min walk in the other direction takes you to the bottom of the World famous “Royal Mile” (as the name suggests, it's a mile from Holyrood Palace to Edinburgh Castle) and various airport Link / tourist bus stops.

Whenever possible, guests will be welcomed personally at the property for the handover of keys. As you would expect, crisp fresh linen, bath and hand towels are provided for guests. In addition, local information / literature, an iPod docking station and a selection of books, DVDs & board games have been provided for your perusal.

Location description from owner

The Scotland region

Why the Owner Chose Edinburgh: Quite simply, the best of what Edinburgh has to offer is right on your door step as the apartment is located in the heart of the City (see our map “photo”). Scotland’s premier tourist hub, namely the World famous Royal Mile / Holyrood Palace (the Queen’s residence) / Scottish Parliament / Arthur’s Seat (set in a 650 acre park, is the view from your living room window) area, is within a 5min walk, while a 30 second walk in the other direction takes you to London Road (a major bus nexus providing access to Princes Street in 5mins and routes to the Old/New Town, the Royal Yacht in c.15mins and Edinburgh Zoo in c.30mins.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: Without a doubt the apartment’s central location close to the main attractions and stunning panoramic views of Holyrood Park (all 650 acres of it!) and ready access to FREE parking has been a major Holiday Let draw. This high quality apartment has recently been modernised throughout, has lift/elevator access and is large by Edinburgh standards, meaning it can comfortably accommodate up to 6 people (check out our floor plan “photo”). Nearby there is a major shopping centre (3mins walk), other shops / pubs / restaurants and numerous bus stops (including an airport / tour bus stop). In short, this apartment is a great base to make the most of your visit to Edinburgh!........ I speak English; however please note that over the years I have found Google Translate very effective for assisting with queries & handling bookings in other languages.

Edinburgh

1) The apartment is very centrally located with all of Edinburgh's tourist attractions within easy reach (See our map “photo”). Ideally situated for the Royal Mile (5min walk), Palace of Holyrood House (5min walk), Scottish Parliament and Dynamic Earth (5min walk) as well as having the beautiful Holyrood Park right on the doorstep. Nearby, there are also numerous festival and 'Fringe' venues (it's a 15min walk through the park to the famous “Pleasance”), the Grassmarket / Cowgate (20min walk) and Edinburgh Castle (25min walk). In addition, the flat is a 30 second walk from London Road's buses (a major bus nexus, providing access to Princes Street in 5mins, the Old Town, New Town, the Royal Yacht, Edinburgh Zoo etc) and local shops/pubs.

2) Edinburgh: The Old Town's cobbled streets, closes (alleyways) and historic Victorian / Georgian architecture make it visually stunning. The grandeur of the New Town, designer/boutique shopping on George Street and an immense choice of restaurants and bars make it a city to suit everyone's taste and budget!

3) The Festival city: Festivals are what Edinburgh does best, with something going on all year round. The high summer Military Tattoo & International and the Fringe are perhaps the best known, however to name but a few Edinburgh hosts the Science festival (April), Film Festival (June), Jazz & Blues Festival (July), Book Festival, Mela (August) and numerous gourmet food events.

4) Entertainment: Edinburgh has a throbbing night-life, is home to various jazz bars, comedy clubs, while during the summer street entertainment & busking Bag Pipers are never far away. The nearby Playhouse (15-20mins) & Festival Theatre (25min walk) host an abundance of cultural events, including operas, ballets & stand up comedy shows.

5) Walking in The Green City: Edinburgh is a fantastic city to visit and is small enough to walk around. Holyrood Park, Princes Street gardens and the meadows (tennis & pitch n putt golf!) are popular places for a stroll, offering a change to the ever present guided historical / ghost tours! For the more energetic, Arthur's Seat (3min away), an extinct volcano, is crisscrossed with walking trails and is popular with runners / cyclists as well as tourists for some of the best views of the city from Salisbury Crags. In addition, the Botanical Gardens and Edinburgh Zoo (No. 26 bus from London Road, c30mins), home to the UK's only Giant Pandas, are both worth a visit and are accessible by nearby bus routes.

6) Running, Edinburgh Marathon: Billed as “the fastest marathon in the UK” and “one of the fastest in the World,” Edinburgh is expected to host 40,000+ elite athletes in May 2016.

7) Hogmanay, the Scottish New Year: The Scots word for “the last day of the year.” Enough said!

All in all, in the sunshine there is nothing better than wandering around the streets soaking up the atmosphere. When it rains (which has been known!) you are never far from somewhere interesting to dash into out of the weather. Edinburgh boast a huge number of Art Galleries, Museums, theatres and live music venues as well as Cinema's, indoor shopping centres and entertainment Plaza's - something for everyone!
