What is a short-term let? (For Guests)

As the name suggests, a short-term let is a property that can be rented out for a short period. This offers complete flexibility, whether you are looking to stay for just 1 night or 6 months, we have apartments that will fit your requirements.

These apartments are offered as fully furnished with all the amenities you would expect in your home. You do not need to worry about setting up utility bills or WIFI as this is covered in your nightly rate. There are no administration fees or hefty deposits. Simply turn up with your bags and you’re ready to start enjoying the space.

Who uses short-term lets used?

A short-term let is used by someone that’s not looking for a permanent place to stay. These are people who know they’ll only be in Edinburgh for a specific number of days/weeks/months and need somewhere to live while they’re there.

Common examples of people that suit short-term lets are the following:

  • Anyone on a short-term work contract that needs somewhere to live.
  • People on holiday looking for cost effective alternative to a hotel.
  • Families that require temporary accommodation while their home is being renovated or repaired.
  • Individuals or families who are relocating to Edinburgh and would like to test specific neighbourhoods without committing to a 12-month tenancy agreement.

Short-term let’s offer flexibility and are often used in unforeseen and difficult situations.

What are the benefits?

Needless to say, there are plenty of benefits using a short-term let. The main one is that it’s the most cost-effective solution out there. Hotels are ridiculously expensive – particularly in popular cities – and B&Bs tend to be out dated and lack the space an apartment will give.

Short term lets offer much more privacy, comfort and space in comparison to hotels. Therefore, so many families are starting to choose apartments over hotels.

Short-term lets are simply the most convenient and affordable solution for a variety of scenarios. Whether you’re going on holiday for a few days, or have a work contract, staying in a short term let is perfect.
