A lovely modern 2 bedroom first floor Portobello self catering flat that overlooks the beach and seaside promenade at the west end of Portobello in Edinburgh.


At Edinburgh Beach View Apartment you can simply mix and match, beach holiday/city break/tour base. Enjoy fishing, Scotland’s breath taking scenery, Edinburgh Festival or Scotland’s famous golf courses:

By car the popular city centre car parks, attractions and shopping are between 13 & 17 minutes away. By bus 25-35 minutes.

Portobello Beach, a few miles from Edinburgh city centre, is a charming seaside suburb, with two miles of sand making it perfect for swimming and sunbathing.

The Seaside Award-winning beach draws large crowds in good weather and, along with the promenade, hosts a number of popular events, including the annual Big Beach Busk, international volleyball competitions and triathlon events.

The Portobello Kayaking and Sailing Club is based here, along with RowPorty, a community-run coastal rowing club. Look out also for the splendid Victorian swimming pool, featuring an original Aerotone and Turkish baths.

If you are seeking refreshment, there is a choice of several bars and cafés on the promenade, with further options on Portobello’s bustling high street, including quality independent restaurants and gift shops. There is a market in Brighton Park on the first Saturday of every month, selling fresh local produce as well as crafts.

Portobello’s elegant Georgian and Victorian architecture is protected within the conservation area and there are a number of attractive parks to enjoy. An independent town until 1896, Portobello retains its unique character and sense of identity, making a trip to Edinburgh’s Seaside an essential part of your visit to Scotland’s capital city.

Great value for money! Good location close to beach, shops and bus-stop. Apartment spotlessly clean, warm and well equipped. Communication from John the host was excellent. Would definitely stay here again.

Sheron Jul 2021

Fantastic flat right close to the seaside. Loved it. It has everything you need and John is a great host. Even let us in a bit earlier to save us waiting in the torrential rain. Super comfy beds and good coffee machine. Plenty of washing up liquid and soap too. Will definitely stay again and recommend.
