About The Owner

Susan and Allan: we live in the Scottish Borders but wanted to have a home in Edinburgh. We have family who reside in Edinburgh that we visit frequently. The apartment is ideally placed to get the most from a holiday in Edinburgh. We hope that guests will find the comfortable accommodation as much of a pleasure to stay in as we do.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2010

Why The Owner chose Edinburgh

We had been searching for three years for an apartment in the heart of Edinburgh that would be ideal for us to use and to holiday let. The apartment has been fully refurbished.The property is superbly located in the Dean area of Edinburgh, which runs alongside the Water of Leith and lies just a few minutes walk from the retail and commercial heart of Edinburgh. The apartment enjoys all the benefits city living has to offer with restaurants, bistros and shops located in nearby vicinity. There is no need for a car as main bus routes are close by that cover most parts of the town and surrounding areas. Neighbouring Stockbridge, just a ten minute walk beside the water of Leith, also provides further local shopping and a Waitrose supermarket.

What makes this apartment unique

Dean village is a tranquil green oasis only five minutes from Princes Street. Dean is located in a conservation area which forms part of Edinburgh World Heritage Sites The apartment is part of an historic mill conversion.

Wonderful stay in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed for 5 nights in this flat. We loved the location - very peaceful and beautiful and yet only a few minutes walk from Stockbridge and from Princes Street. The flat itself was very comfortable with great beds, lots of room in the closets, and a fully equipped kitchen. The shower was great - lots of water pressure. There was also a safe in the master bedroom to store valuables and a washer/dryer in the kitchen. Highly recommended and we will be back!

Astonishingly beautiful location, comfortable, and immaculately maintained

  • 5 of 5

It was such a joy to stay in this unique pocket of the city- so quiet and charming yet steps away from every convenience. The flat is lovingly and tastefully decorated and also well-equipped, and our hostess provided so many welcoming touches. Everything was spotless and well-maintained. The backyard garden and waterfall was a lovely oasis to relax at the end of long walks around the beautiful city of Edinburgh. I feel lucky to have found it!

Location and setting perfect for short break close to centre

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic welcome with prosecco and chocolates! Great location near one end of Princes Street (up steep hill!), with restaurants close by. Picturesque setting next to river, great for walks. Well stocked kitchen. Cosy lounge could be enhanced by corner, slouchy sofa. We enjoyed an excellent stay for Hogmanay. Would return within a heartbeat. Thank you to Housekeeper Jacqui for finalising our departure needs so well with her kind hospitality.

Lovely, comfortable flat in an excellent location. Clean, well equipped and very welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time in this lovely flat, the owner Susan was helpful and considerate. Comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen. The flat was clean, tidy and we were provided with fluffy towels and excellent bed linen. We stayed a month and only wish it could have been longer. The position of the flat is perfect for strolling into nearby Stockbridge along the Waters of Leith, lovely cafes, restaurants and plenty of interesting shops as well as a good sized waitrose and local Sainsburys. Also we were only a 10min walk into the city. Dean Village is an historic tourist destination! We loved it. Susan gave us a couple of restaurant recommendations and they proved to be perfect! We can't express enough just how good we felt about our stay in this property. We had the best time and enjoyed exploring Edinburgh and catching up with family. Many thanks Susan and Alan.
