vacation rental description

This 5 star, (accredited by Visit Scotland),luxury apartment has unprecedented views of Edinburgh castle and is available according to The VRBO calender. It commands an extremely central location on the corner of fashionable George Street and North Castle Street, and is surrounded by leading stores such as Harvey Nichol's and great restaurants and bars. It is decorated and furnished to the highest standards.

One of the first flats to be built in the New Town by James Craig in 1790 and directly adjacent to the Edinburgh town house of Sir Walter Scott! Two bedrooms - one master, (with super king-size divan) and stunning castle views. One single (but just large enough for two with a single/trundle bed that coverts to an additional single. large elegant lounge with two large windows, contemporary furnishings and decor with two comfortable sofas and a marble dining table and chairs for six. There is a large Sony flat screen TV with access to Sky and Apple television.

State of the art Kitchen and Bathroom - limestone throughout.

Fully fitted contemporary, luxury kitchen with everything you would expect of a 5 star property and bathroom (both with lime stone throughout) double bath and steam shower, under-floor heating and limestone wet-room. The property comes with access to the private gardens on Queens Street, just two minutes from the front door.

The apartment is situated within easy walking distance of all major attractions; museums and galleries, shops and restaurants and is a five minute walk from a nearby private gym and pool.

It's central location provides very easy walking to all major Edinburgh Festival attractions and has unprecedented views of the closing fireworks festival concert from Edinburgh Castle in the first week of September 2013 (dates TBC): 'The Edinburgh International Festival goes out each year with literally many, very large bangs, in its annual 45-minute Festival Fireworks Concert.

Beneath Edinburgh Castle in Princes Street Gardens and across the road from the apartment, the world-renowed Scottish Chamber Orchestra perform live while a fireworks team based in the castle provides synchronised visual accompaniment.

You need a ticket to hear the SCO playing at the Ross Band Stand in Princes Street Gardens, but the majority of spectators tune into local radio to hear the live broadcast and watch the pyrotechnians paint the sky in explosive colour. There's not a better view than from the windows of the master bedroom!!

Amazing Apartment

Review submitted: May 29, 2013   Date of arrival: May 18, 2013

We had a wonderful stay here. Our sons were with us and it worked out great. We loved the castle view, and the bath with steam shower was wonderful. Beautiful kitchen and Starbucks just around the corner. We walked everywhere. We would love to go back! Thanks for a wonderful time.

Outstanding apartment in a great location!

Review submitted: March 29, 2013   Date of arrival: December 27, 2012

I stayed here for about 5 weeks in late December and January, 2013. It is in a perfect location, close to the Castle and the heart of shopping in Edinburgh. We were fortunate enough to be here for Hogmanay, and it has great views of the Castle. Getting around was easy - either walking (even in winter) or catching one of the many buses close by. I love to cook, and the kitchen is well equipped and very spacious. It's great for entertaining. My daughter and son-in-law ate most evening meals with me, and we always started with our drinks and appetizers around the kitchen island. Morris was very pleasant to work with and took care of any minor problems that arose during my five week stay. I hope to stay again!
