About Emelie & Owen Lima
We are a South African-Swedish couple who love travelling and visiting new places (especially hot and sunny ones). In 2005 we somehow found ourselves living in not-so-sunny, but spectacularly beautiful Scotland, where the idea of combining our passion for property and travel started to materialise. In 2012 we finally took the plunge, bought our first investment flat and spent several months giving it a complete makeover. Three years later we relocated to Cape Town, South Africa (permanently beautiful weather!), and handed over the running of the apartment to Owen's mum, Linda.

Why Emelie & Owen Lima chose Old Town
Call us biased, but we think this is the PERFECT location to explore Edinburgh (if in doubt, have a look at the list of what's available within 10 minutes' walking distance!).
What makes this Apartment unique
We love the view from the roof and the character of the flat, with its high ceilings, bay windows and even an old-fashioned clothes pulley. The layout is also really great and works well for three or four guests, since all rooms are accessed from the hallway, so there's no walking through each other's rooms to get to the bathroom or kitchen.
