The apartment is a one bedroom with a very comfortable queen size bed. There is a large and comfy L shaped sofa in the living room that opens up to a slightly smaller than full size bed.

There are original hardwood floors throughout. t is a non-smoking house which houses 2 cats, although they go to stay with a friend when we are away. We have a 6month old baby so the apartment is baby friendly (but not baby proofed yet).

About us:

We are a professional married couple who both work in the catering industry at management level. We are in our early 30's with a young baby. We mainly travel to NY to visit family, preferably in May.

We are open to offers but because of industry, it is unlikely we would be able to take a holiday during the Edinburgh Festival. We would be able to swap from Jan-Jun, or Sept-Nov.
