    The Penthouse is the personal home of the owners for when they visit their daughters in Edinburgh, and it really is a fully furnished home, and NOT a typical rental property.

One wall of the kitchen is glass, leading onto the private balcony.

    4) an ensuite which is located off the master bedroom, with double walk-in shower, toilet, and wash-hand basin;
    5) bedroom 2 is a large bedroom with specially built beds that can be varied to meet your requirements, as they can be set-up as either two single beds, or they can link together to make one large super-king bed. There is a TV/DVD player, an ipod docking station, hairdryer, lots of hanging space in the double wardrobe and plenty of space in chest of drawers etc;
    6) Bedroom three is a twin bedroom with two single beds, TV/DVD player, floor lighting, plenty hanging space in the double wardrobe, and it has a chest of drawers etc

    The Penthouse is in a fantastic location, only a 10 minute walk to Princes Street, the main street in the centre of the city, yet in an area VERY safe to walk with young families at any time. Within a 5 minute walk from The Penthouse there are lots of restaurants, city centre mini supermarkets, the main theatre in Edinburgh, a multiplex cinema complex with family friendly restaurants, excellent shops e.g. Harvey Nichols, deli's, bakers etc and a small playground. Also within a 5 minute walk are city centre car rental depots should you wish to rent a car when you're in Edinburgh. It also has private parking, which you definitely need if you wish to have a car with you when you're in Edinburgh. Yet The Penthouse is in a very quiet exclusive development with no passing traffic, so it's incredibly quiet.
    The Penthouse is an ideal property for a wide range of guests from:-
    a) a couple(s) looking for somewhere they can go to be pampered in luxury in a great part of the city, with the freedom and informality that our home can give when compared to a hotel;
    b) families where we have everything you could possibly need for any age from baby through to our more mature guests, from high-chair, bath mat, potty, night lights, dvd's for all ages, books, games etc. Having the TV's/DVD players in each bedroom allows the younger guests to have their own space to watch any movies etc in the bedrooms, leaving the lounge free for the adults to be entertained in. Also The Penthouse is large enough for anyone to find a quiet corner if needed.
    c) wedding parties, where the family of the bride or groom, or the couple themselves can spend time together leading-up to the big event, and or afterwards, or honeymooners looking to be pampered after their big day;
    d) guests coming for special events like The Edinburgh Festival, The Hogmanay / New Year Street Party, Edinburgh's Christmas Celebrations, rugby internationals, theatre breaks, attending The Highland show etc
    e) guests coming for business trips or attending conferences in the city, etc
