Hello! My name is James and I hope I have included all the information on the site regarding transport to and from the apartment, wether you arriving by train, plane or bus.
Anything I have missed in regards this please do ask!
The space is adequately furnished with a selection tasty treats for you to enjoy on your arrival or to get you started you begin to explore Edinburgh!
The bed is super comfortable and will suit one perfectly, as its a 3/4 sized bed, if you are 6ft 3"/2metres (ish) this may not be the bed for you!
We only take one guest at a time, so please DON'T ask if you can bring a friend etc .... when we clearly state the room is suitable for one. Its very comfortable for one and a bit of a squeeze for two!
Breakfast is provided free and we are happy to prepare this for you at an agreed time, otherwise we will show you where everything is and you can help yourself. We will also have a selection of fruit, which you are free to help yourself to for the day ahead. Coffee/tea will always be on the go, please let us know if you have a preference in advance and we can have this bought in specially for you.
We also have a washing machine which can be used at NO extra charge, but we do ask for a donation towards washing powder etc ... There are drying facilities in your room or, weather dependant, clothes can be dried in the garden space/back yard.
Should you be staying with us on a Sunday morning we occassionally provide a full cooked Scottish breakfast at NO extra charge should you wish. Thursday night is normally pizza night in our house and again if you are about you are welcome to join us for some pizza!
We are both busy folk and will make every effort to be here when you arrive, if not arrangements will be made prior to your arrival.
Leith is fantastically historic with many wonderful amenities virtually on our door step including the walkable Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre, where the Royal Yacht Britannia is permanently moored. Ocean Terminal also has a Pure Gym and Vue Cinema ... ask us about Cheap Tuesdays at the Vue. We also have the very trendy Shore area of Leith with it's many bars, pubs and restaurants, that sit on the edge of the Water of Leith which meanders through Edinburgh.
There is an excellent walk/cycle paths that runs the length of The Water of Leith, which can take you to several destinations including the Stockbridge area of Edinburgh and for the more adventurous all the way to the Gallery of Modern Art. We can also provide a bicycle and helmet for a small daily fee should you wish to to make use of the many cycle paths that criss cross Edinburgh. This can be discussed on your arrival.
We have free on street parking should you be driving to Edinburgh.
We can also give you a 10% at my retail space Concrete Wardrobe. Also please ask us about any other discounts that we may have been able to secure for you whilst you are staying with us in Leith!
Bathroom and the separate shower room and a large selection of reading material in your room!
There is also a hairdryer in the room as well as a charger for an iPhone, iPad or Mac computer and a power socket converter. If you need anything else, please do ask before making a purchase as we maybe able to save you some money!
There is also a medium sized dressing gown which you are free to use for the duration of your stay.
As much or as little as you would like .... we are busy folk, but we are around a fair bit as we also work in the area.
We also have a wee dog, Domino the French Bulldog, so therefore we can't accommodate other dogs in our home.
Domino is a small cute, brindle pure bred French Bulldog, who sleeps most of the day, but can be a feisty wee thing when he first meets folk, he calms down fairly quickly and has some quirky qualities which are quiet endearing to us. If you don't like dogs our apartment may not be the place for you. We like to meet guests at the bus stop as this is less stressful for him with folk arriving.
If you are arriving by a different method, we will give you further instructions prior to your trip.
He is not allowed in your room as he likes collecting socks.
If you do not like dogs please do not book our space.
While we have a no smoking policy, there is a small garden to the rear of the property where you can nip out to gather some "fresh air". If you partake in E cigarettes this is not an issue to use them in the flat as they are odourless.
This is our home and all we ask is that this as well as our neighbours are respected while you stay with us. We have no curfew and you are more than welcome to come and go as you please while staying with us.
We would prefer guests did not use the kitchen area without our consent, its a small space, but this can be discussed on your arrival.
