Circus Gardens Airbnb
Possibly one of my favourite properties of all time, I photographed a faulous Airbnb property at Circus Gardens in Edinburgh’s Stockbridge area. There were several things that really stood out about this property. The first was the owner, an elderly lady originally from the USA, she and her husband purchased the apartment some 30 years ago and she was absolutely lovely to talk to.
Of course the main thing that stood out was the apartment itself. Most Airbnb apartments tend to look like boxes, literally plain walls with the odd decoration here and there but the owner of this flat had acquired most of the items in her flat over the years from the local thrift shops. That’s one of the great things about Stockbridge, there are so many shops that sell all kinds of quirky things and if you’re patient and you really shop around, you can pick up all kinds of fabulous items. So that’s why we loved her apartment, it wasn’t just a box but a collection of possessions collected over many years.
Whether you like the decor or not, I really love the effort put into this lovely home.
