Key features

Stay in style, in the delightful Ocean Way Residence. This charming apartment mixes modern with traditional, and is in the perfection location to explore Edinburgh multi personalities, including super-chic The Shore. This two bedroom, two bathroom apartment sleeps up to four guests, and is decorated to a very high standard. Guests are truly spoilt in this beautiful apartment, ensuring your romantic getaway or family holiday is one to remember.

Kick back and relax in the bright living room after a long day’s shopping and sightseeing. Cozy sofas, soft rugs and plump cushions welcome you to put your feet up, as you admire the view through the large, curved feature wall. Your entertainment needs are also met, with a large, flat screen TV with Freeview, DVD player, and MyFi WiFi all provided for guests’ use. Hungry? Enter the sunny kitchen and whip up some of your own culinary delights, finished with modern surfaces and all the appliances you could need, including a dishwasher.

Two double bedrooms offer a peaceful night’s sleep, with plentiful guest storage. One bedroom has a modern en suite with large shower cubicle, and a family bathroom with bath tub completes this accommodation.

Guests in this apartment are also granted with two additional luxuries - a permit for local parking, and free access to a private gym.

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.

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 15 pounds 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.

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.

    Our travel agent delt directly with them and as far as I'm aware there weren't any issues.


    Upon arrival they were an hour late meeting us and once in the apartment found several issues and had to email the individual. The email stated: Mr. Mamood
    After checking in to the flat this afternoon, we have been discovering problems with the flat.
    Light bulbs need replaced, the cabinet door under the sink keeps falling halfway off. The kitchen smelled of cigarettes and there was leftover open food in the counter.
    There have also been crumbs and hair on the floor, clearly tilt wasn't thoroughly vacuumed before we arrived.
    Also, the heat doesn't seem to work on the radiators or in the towel racks. The television doesnt work that well either.
    We just discovered that the shower off the bedroom is not draining properly either and to be quite honest, our mother traveling with us is completely stressed out and doesn't want to stay here. However it's already paid for.
    They did come and vacuum and fix the light bulb but it was a little stressful.
