An executive and luxurious apartment in a fantastic location, that can comfortably sleep 4 guests.

Enjoy all that Edinburgh has to offer as you're only a 10 minute bus journey from Princes Street and the heart of this fantastic city, including all the major city centre shopping areas. The apartment is situated on the ground floor of a contemporary development overlooking one of Edinburgh's golf courses.

It features beautiful spacious rooms, ceilings typical of a property of this style.

The modern living/dining room benefits from a lovely aspect to the rear of the property overlooking the golf course. A large LCD TV, DVD player and wifi internet access are provided for guests use. The large modern quality furniture includes a dining table seating 6.

There are 2 double bedrooms, the master bedroom has a kingsize bed and an en-suite shower room. The second bedroom can be arranged as with either a kingsize or as a twin, thanks to hotel style zip and link beds. Both bedrooms benefit from large built-in wardrobes, offering ample storage for guests.

The beautifully appointed kitchen features all required appliances and includes a breakfast table seating 4.

A family size bathroom with shower over bath completes the accommodation.

You will find excellent access to a major bus route (within 250 metres) with the bus journey to all central Edinburgh locations costing £1.50 and taking 10-15 minutes.

The apartment is within easy walking distance to Edinburgh Zoo, Scotland's second most popular tourist attraction after Edinburgh Castle. There you can see the new Giant Pandas recently arrived from China, Tian Tian (Sweetie) and Yang Guang (Sunshine) in their fabulous new Panda enclosure.

Rugby games and music concerts at Murrayfield Stadium are just 1 mile away. Locally Corstorphine has many local shops, supermarkets, restaurants and bars. The apartment is also only a short drive to the Gyle Retail Park (Marks & Spencers, Next, GAP) and nearby business parks including South Gyle and Edinburgh Park, home to major companies such as RBS, HBOS and HSBC.

Entry to the apartment is from 16:00 onwards; however, please note that arrivals after 21:00 will incur a late fee of £30 for unsociable hours. Earlier entry can perhaps be arranged but depends if there is a departure at your chosen apartment that day. This can be confirmed within 48 hours of arrival. If you are arriving earlier than 16:00 on your day of arrival, it is always worth contacting the property manager as they will always endeavour to give you access as soon as possible. You may be able to arrive early and leave luggage and come back however this is not guaranteed.

I booked an apartment through Air bnb for the Edinburgh fringe several months before travel, for myself and family coming from all over the UK. 3 days before I had an email stating the booking had been cancelled due to a major leak in the apartment block. Once I got over the poor communication from Air bnb and got straight through to Nisa at Reserve they could not have been more helpful - they found us a replacement apartment, actually at a better location and honoured the original price, which was a minor miracle during the Fringe festival. Communication, key pickup and the actual apartment were all first class from that point.


Large, extremely well equipped apartment in an excellent location within easy reach of Edinburgh city centre, and right next door to the zoo and Murrayfield.

Meet & greet was very good and David responded to messages during our visit.


It was very comfortable and well equipped. Carpets were ''tired'.
The most disappointing/frustrating feature was either non-existent or poor internet / wifi connection which was never resolved during our stay.
