The house is well set up for a family with a spacious lounge and large kitchen/dining area with well-equipped kitchen. The spacious family bathroom has a bath and shower. The toddler room is large and used as a playroom as well. The garden is lovely, especially for breakfast or coffee in the morning.

Why Kids Love it

The house is well-equipped with lots of toys and books for younger kids and has space in the kitchen for the wheeled toys and in the hall. The garden has a play area with slide and sandbox. It is a short walk from local playgrounds, bike paths and Edinburgh Zoo. The castle and other city center attractions can be reached in under 10 minutes by car. A crib and high chair are available with a travel crib if needed as well - please request on booking.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 5 days. The house is child-friendly with stair gates and locked cupboards for cleaning materials; there are a couple of steps in the house from the hall to the kitchen. The enclosed garden is secure and a great space for children to play safely. Parking is on the street directly in front of the house. Car rental may not be necessary with easy public transit routes nearby and plenty of walkable attractions. A library, supermarket and post office are all close by.

About the Location

The house is in Balgreen, approximately 7 minutes’ drive west of central Edinburgh. It is ideal for exploring Edinburgh or venturing outside of the city. A local golf course, Water of Leith, playgrounds and Edinburgh Zoo area all within 10 minutes walk. There are many local bus stops near by providing easy access to the city centre and a tram stop on the street provides both access from the airport and into the centre. Edinburgh airport is a 12-minute drive away.

Accommodation Details

This 4-bedroom period property has a kitchen/dining area, living room and a garden with slide and sandbox. There is a master bedroom with kingsize bed, a double bedroom with full/double bed, a children's bedroom with a toddler bed (a single bed can be added) and a baby's bedroom with a crib. The bathroom has a tub and shower.

Style Notes

Modern Victorian. The house is a period property with high ceiling and cornices and plenty of light. The master bedroom has a characterful large bay window and the kids bedrooms are spacious, light and full of toys. We love the kitchen, well set up for making family feasts, the grassy garden and the quiet but convenient location.

We love to travel especially to the US (trying to go to all 50 states) and around Scotland. India is becoming a favourite destination as well. Our boys are 2 and almost 4 and Kid and Coe have made travelling so much easier. Our oldest still talks about a recent holiday and the toys he could play with. We would love to offer that for other families while enabling us to travel as well.

Edinburgh, Scotland

Magic in the air

With its turreted sky-line, brooding Gothic architecture, towering crags and immense history, Edinburgh is not only one of Europe’s most beautiful cities but also one of the most interesting and awe-inspiring. It’s a city where an ‘Auld Reekie’ world of whisky, folk music, gritty late-night comedians, winter harr and cobbled wynds collide with lofty ideals, high culture and world-class attractions, all with the added zing of a capital in the age of nationalist fervour and the magical twist of Harry Potter, written and filmed here and nearby.
