Condo/Apartment
The apartment is a beautiful private home made available only for a few weeks over the summer whilst I’m travelling. The centre of the beautiful city of Edinburgh is only a 20-minute bus ride away. The bus stop is located 1 minute away - across the road from the apartments and has frequent and inexpensive buses into the city (or out east to the countryside, golf courses, castles and beaches of East Lothian). Additionally, the apartment offers free parking. My good friend Anne will take care of your needs in my absence. If you stay in my home, I know you’ll love it - it’s a real cracker of a place to be! My guest room is a bright double bedroom, which can be set up either to have a double bed or 2 generous singles. Duvets and pillows are duck down with cotton sheets.

My guest room is a bright double bedroom, which can be set up either to have a double bed or 2 generous singles. Duvets and pillows are duck down with cotton sheets. There is also a good quality sofa bed in the living room if you want to have a guest or two staying for a few nights. You’ll have full access to those useful little things provided when staying in a ‘real home’. I invite you to enjoy my balcony and hammock - which gets the afternoon and evening sun whilst you can hear and see the sea. If you want a relaxing or social night ‘in’, then enjoy entertaining friends, cooking in my bespoke fitted kitchen and eating in the dining area – or get a take-away; then chill out and enjoy a large TV, DVD player and stereo. If you want to get out or get active, then I’ve got lots of detailed Ordinance Survey maps and guide books to Scotland – for any exploring you want to do. In return, I hope that you enjoy your stay, and take care of and respect my home. Specifically, this means: no shoes indoors, no parties, no pets, no smoking and no children (but they can visit you). If meeting my needs doesn't suit your holiday needs – please look and book elsewhere. Wherever you stay and whatever you do – enjoy our lovely city, surrounds, sights and culture and haste ye’ back (Scots greeting for ‘hurry back’).

The following feedback was received upon hosting 2 professionals from Australia in May: Helen and I had the absolute pleasure of staying in Claire's gorgeous apartment in Portobello, Edinburgh on 20 and 21 May 2018. Such a beautiful place, quiet, secure with airy water and garden views, with access to walks along the beach, and a beaut pub for dinner. All away from the lively and exciting bustle of downtown Edinburgh, which we absolutely loved. It’s such a great city, which seems to put people first, and that is exemplified by the great bus public transport system, which enabled us to easily get to central Edinburgh within 30 minutes. Then connecting to all key parts of the city. And the buses weren’t overcrowded. Having a bus stop 50 metres from your place made it all too easy. Thanks so much, we enjoyed it so much! Yours, from the land of Oz!! Denis Ginnivan Indigo Valley Victoria, Australia.More

Fantastic apartment with beautiful views across to Arthur's seat as well as down to the sandy Portabello beach. The accommodation was very comfortable, clean & beautifully presented. It had everything we needed for a relaxing break by the sea as well as being only 20...More
