The Dickins Experience


Fits Like a Glove

We love Edinburgh homes and we’ve hand-picked a superb collection of them which cater for all tastes, budgets and needs. You may love traditional or modern, are bringing the family, a car or your dog. We’re great matchmakers and we’ll make sure that we find you the perfect match.

The best combination of quality, price and location. Many thanks to the landlord for the warm welcome and attention to detail. The baby cot, high chairs, toys and books were above expectations.

Modern life isn’t always set in stone and so one of the key benefits to short term letting is the flexibility it offers. At Dickins we start lets any day of the week, Monday to Sunday, and you can book any period from 3 days up to 6 months. If you need to extend your stay, that will be fine as long as the home you’re staying in is available. You won’t find that adaptability anywhere else in Edinburgh. Dickins are unique.


We care about our homes, our guests and our owners. We want to get it right for everyone. We inspect our homes regularly to make sure they’re always in tip top condition, they are cleaned to 5* hotel standards and if a problem arises during your stay, we have an experienced, professional team of contractors who will resolve issues as quickly as it is possible. We’re good problem solvers and will always find solutions.

We loved this apartment! We have stayed in self-catering flats before which were comfortable but this was like a home from home! The supply of books was brilliant. It was just a pity we weren’t staying longer

We understand how important your Edinburgh home is to you and we will take care of it whilst you are away as if it is our own. We’ve been taking care of Edinburgh properties since 1995, so we have a great deal of experience and knowledge. You can trust that your home is in safe hands. The vast majority of owners whose homes we look after on a year round basis stay in them from time to time. All we ask is that you let us know when we’ll take care of the rest.


One of the key benefits of short term letting is the flexibility it offers you. You’ll be able to use your home yourselves and won’t have to try and work around the inflexibility that comes with long term letting. Depending on where you live and how involved you want to be, we’ll tailor our service to your needs. We’re a small caring team and we’ll get to know you and how much help you need from us. We’re flexible with the amount of time you need to let with us too. If you’re going away at any time of year, please get in touch and we’ll let you know if we can help.
