ELEGANT Edinburgh flat - 3 bedrooms at The Shore

Our flat is situated on the second floor of a Listed tenement building in the old port town of Leith, now part of Edinburgh and is entitled the Waterloo buildings, as it was built in 1815, the year of the famous victory. It has all the original fireplaces and plasterwork, this is a beautifully spacious, yet cozy 3 bedroom flat near the Shore - a popular and vibrant part of Edinburgh with bars, restaurants and cafés. A 20 minute bus ride to the city centre. We love living here and hope you will too!
This is a space designed around family. There are 3 good sized bedrooms, a huge living/dining area with oak refectory table seating 6-8 people. There are 3 sofas and a couple of extra chairs. We have a cooks kitchen fully fitted out with all utensils, appliances and crockery. There is also a very good espresso and cappuccino maker.

Our guests will have access to wifi, tv with DVDs, ps2 with games, loads of books. Laundry.

I will not be in the country, however, I will be available by email and usually reply by return. I have a friend who covers for me when I'm away and is available for any queries and will meet and greet.

Other things to note -
The flat is situated in an 18th century building and there is a rather grimy looking joint stairwell - please don't be put off, as our flat is very clean and has been very well maintained, with the old world character being very well preserved.
Also - we have a cat who lives here, but is currently visiting elsewhere, so anyone with severe pet allergies, beware.

About Me
Hi - I'm Catherine and I'm married to Angelo. We have 4 kids - two, Dominic & Paul, are living in Edinburgh and the others are currently living in Toronto. I am Canadian born, but have lived in Scotland forever and Angelo is an Italian-Scot, Leith born and bred, of Italian parents. We have spent most of our working lives in the catering business - first of all we had a deli in the Royal Mile and now I'm working in product development management for a small independent retailer. My real passion is for interiors and I love finding fun ways to upgrade old pieces of furniture and artifacts to give them a new lease of life.
