We currently have the weekend of the 30th May available at our Edinburgh holiday house near the city centre. Special rental rate - please ask for details! This is the weekend when (hopefully) the new Edinburgh tram system will be opened to the public. Our 4 bedroom holiday house will have a tram stop on its street which means the journey to Princes Street will be now even quicker. Just 10 minutes! 5 minutes from Haymaket train station or 20 minutes journey from the Edinburgh airport. The house is an ideal location for exploring all of Edinburghs sites, walking distance to the zoo and shops, and public transport on the doorstep as well as having your own sunroom and garden to enjoy the spring and summer months!

Our Villa has been an Edinburgh self catering house for over 7 years.

Easter holidays availability in Edinburgh city centre

We've started working in our Edinburgh Villas garden preparing for the upcoming spring and summer, although it's amazing how the weeds seem to start growing earlier than the flowers! Garden is weeded and the lawn will be getting its first cut of the year as soon as the weather drys up (we've had a few rainy days in the last week although early last week we had lovely mild weather). April is pretty much fully booked at our 4 bedroom Edinburgh city centre holiday house although we do still have availability from the 19th April. If you are looking for early-mid April accommodation in Edinburgh then our 3 bedroom Edinburgh city centre apartment which sleeps up to 5 guests is currently available. Send us an email for prices and up to date availability.

Edinburgh late winter deals

There are so many places to see and things to do in Edinburgh that sometimes our guests just dont have the time to venture further out. A 3 day visit to Edinburgh will be a jam packed few days, a 7 night stay in Edinburgh will allow a more leisurely visit and view of the city, and a fortnight in Edinburgh will hopefully allow you time to venture further out of the city and perhaps see historic sites such as this -

House of The Binns near Linlithgow


Which overlooks another historic site -

House of The Binns overlooking Blackness castle

Consider basing your Scotland stay in Edinburgh at perhaps our 4 bedroom Edinburgh holiday house, Quartermile Apartment or Bruntsfield apartment (also perfect for Edinburgh EICC accommodation).

Edinburgh Tour Guides

We at Edinburgh Villa Vacation Rentals are considering offering a new Edinburgh Tour Guide service to our guests. Many of our guests are first time visitors to Edinburgh and Scotland and may be a little unsure of how to use the local buses, where the tourist information centre is, where the museums are, what pubs have nice ambience etc. This can all be a little overwhelming.. and so we are considering offering an introduction to Edinburgh. This may involve a simple 2hr tour guide service where we meet our guests at whichever Edinburgh vacation rental they are staying in, probably the morning after arrival, and take our guests into town by foot or bus, showing the basic layout of the city, and where the majority of the sites are as well as getting our guests 'settled in'. We could even take our guests out to Roslin Chapel and arrange a cream tea in a Roslin hotel for after your visit. No expensive transportation costs as this can all be done by Lothian Buses.
