Key features

Live the high life in this seriously stylish apartment. The Ocean Drive Residence is a little slice of indulgence, waiting to pamper you in Edinburgh’s most cosmopolitan destination, The Shore. This two bedroom, two bathroom apartment sleeps up to four guests in style, and has recently been fully refurbished, setting the bar high for contemporary living. Every inch of this dream home-from-home has been thoughtfully redesigned, from the flooring to the flatware, ensuring your romantic getaway or family holiday is one to remember.

Put your feet up and relax in the spacious living room after a long day’s shopping and sightseeing. A mix of mid-century modern furniture and local artwork delight the senses in this lovingly decorated lounge, perfectly combining comfort with culture. Should you need a little external stimulation, large windows span the extraordinary, curved feature wall, providing a glimpse of outside life. Your electronic needs are also met, with a large, flat screen TV with Freeview, DVD player, iPod dock, mini iPod loaded with tunes, and WiFi all provided for guests’ use.

Feeling peckish? Move through to the brand new kitchen and cook up a storm. Quietly confident in its slick exterior, this is no plain old pantry. State of the art appliances are at hand to help with the nitty gritty, including Siemens induction hob, oven and combination oven/microwave, and AEG dishwasher, washer/dryer and fridge freezer. Whether you’re enjoying your own culinary masterpiece, or a quick coffee and croissant before a busy day, the modern dining table can seat up to four guests.

With a touch of tartan and a dash of deluxe, a good night’s sleep is guaranteed in the two inviting bedrooms. Experience slumber quite literally fit for a king, as the master suite boasts a Hypnos Premier double bed, a brand favoured by our very own Royal Family. A large wardrobe and vanity area ensure the very best home-from-home convenience, as well as an en-suite bathroom with Mira power shower and luxury Scottish Fine Soap toiletries. The second bedroom also offers brand new furniture and plentiful storage, as well as zip and link beds that can be set up as a super king or twin beds. Hairdryers, straighteners and a vanity pack are all available for guests' use. The family bathroom is decorated in calming neutral tones, perfect for a long soak in the tub.

The local area is one of the finest in the city. The Shore plays host to chic bistros, cocktail bars, and even Michelin starred restaurants, as well as art galleries and independent shops. Fancy something a little more commercial? Just a few minutes along Ocean Drive will take you to rainy-day paradise Ocean Terminal, full to the brim with high street and department stores, a cinema, gym, and popular eateries including Wagamama and Pizza Express. Permanently moored alongside Ocean Terminal is the Royal Yacht Britannia, voted the UK’s number one tourist attraction on TripAdvisor in 2014.

However, if you find yourself yearning for medieval streets, castles and extinct volcanoes, fear not as the hubbub of the city centre is within easy reach. Just 15 minutes on one of the many buses servicing the area, and you’ll be strolling along the Royal Mile or climbing Arthur’s Seat. If you’d rather bring the car, the Ocean Drive Residence provides a luxury few and far between in a compact city like Edinburgh: secure underground parking.

A meet and greet service is provided, whereby you will be met at the property to be provided with keys and to be shown the property. Please arrange your arrival with the property manager.

Entry to the apartment is from 16:00 onwards; however, please note that arrivals after 19:00 may incur a late arrival fee of 25 pounds for unsociable hours and 40 pounds for arrivals after 11pm. 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.

The latest departure time is 11:00, however, a guaranteed later departure (up to 20:00) can be arranged for a fee of 50% of the daily rate for that day but please note this is subject to no existing booking arriving that day already.

Great service from reserve, We booked only 3 days before our visit but process was completely smooth. Communication in regards to meet and greet was great. Tony was also great when we had a concern after we left. Have another apartment booked in a couple of months time to visit with family so hoping we have an equally great experience.


The apartment was fantastic. It’s in a great quiet location but within walking distance to great restaurants and bars in Leith and also minutes to the transport links. The apartment is equipped with everything you need, it’s homely, clean and well maintained, the owners clearly have pride in their residence and look to make guests feel comfortable and at home. i look forward to visiting again soon.

We enjoyed our time in the apartment. The house was very cosy and everything you needed.It was a great location for everywhere we needed. Lots of great places to eat nearby and we even had a Chinese Meal delivered to the apartment and it was yummy.Beds were comfortable and toiletries were supplied. We will definately go back.


It was a bit expensive but maybe because it is The Fringe in Edinburgh. They also took a £200 breakage charge so don't worry you do get it back but ours took 8 days to get back into our account.

Our response

Service rating : Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at The Ocean Drive Residence in Edinburgh. We look forward to welcoming you back soon!
Product : I'm sorry that the refund of the deposit took long as sometimes the banks can take up to 3-5 working days to process the payment after we issue the refund.

The apartment was 1st class and contained all we required for our break. Beautiful Leith Docks location with regular bus service to central Edinburgh less than 5 minutes away. Secure parking on site and local restaurants and pubs within short walking distance. Fully recommended.


Excellent VFM with efficient booking process.
