Tailor your stay in our Holiday Apartments

The benefit of staying in one of our holiday apartments for your visit to Edinburgh is that we can look after you a lot better. Make your trip to Edinburgh that extra bit special by using some of our handpicked services.

Fresh Food Delivery

It’s lovely to arrive in your holiday apartment to find a well-stocked fridge, saving you a dash to the nearest supermarket before you can settle in properly. We have partnered with the excellent Edinburgh Food Delivery to enable you to order top quality fresh ingredients, delivered ready for your arrival. They have a fantastic selection and wherever possible, ingredients are locally sourced, so you’re making the very best of Scotland’s own produce while supporting local producers.

Private cooks and chefs

If your visit to Edinburgh is part of a special celebration, or you just fancy a night in without having to cook, a private cook or chef brings a touch of luxury to your stay. We work with the excellent Russell and his team from The Edinburgh Catering Company who can rustle up anything from a celebratory dinner to a full wedding breakfast. Drop them a line to discuss what you are looking for (and don’t forget to mention that Greatbase sent you their way!).


We like to put a few fresh flowers into each of our properties to welcome you, but if you’re looking for something really special, or a gift, we recommend our favourite Edinburgh florist, Snapdragon. We recommend a ‘posy jar’ or ‘vase of flowers’, but you can discuss more with Cathie and her team at Snapdragon.
