Edinburgh: Stylish City Centre Apartment
Known for its phenomenal fringe festival, Edinburgh is a city bursting with history and culture. Have Christmas Lunch at Edinburgh Castle, see a theatrical performance of It’s a Wonderful Life, or wander through the city’s famous Christmas Market – there are plenty of things to see and do in Edinburgh in December and January.
GuestReady manages a range of Edinburgh Airbnb properties including this Stylish City Centre Apartment next to the thriving Lothian Road in Tollcross. You’ll find trendy bars, cute cafes and loads of restaurants in walking distance – as well as the city’s largest manicured garden, known as Meadows, just a two-minute walk away.
The apartment is very cosy and comfortable, offering you a full kitchen and dining table so you can cook at home. But if you want to eat out and experience the best of Edinburgh, you have the benefit of a major bus route right outside your door!
Paris: Quirky home full of natural light in the 5th Arrondissement
Imagine celebrating Christmas in the City of Love? See all the famous sights of Paris like the Eifel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, and River Seine – while feasting on French cuisine and lapping up Parisian culture.
If you’re wanting some time away from the family at Christmas – why not go on holidays with your besties and stay in this Parisian apartment in the 5th Arrondissement. We consider it an ideal Airbnb winter vacation rental.
With quirky artwork and quality furnishings, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment is full of natural light and has everything you need including complimentary toiletries. Luxembourg Palace is just a 10-minute walk away.
London: Luxury home close to Kensington Palace
If you haven’t already watched the Christmas movie Love Actually, do yourself a favour and add it to your ‘must view’ list this weekend…and then book yourself a Christmas getaway to London!
There are plenty of Christmas Markets to stroll around, mulled wine to drink and cinnamon-covered snacks to feast on – not to mention loads of sparkling festive decorations all over town. London definitely knows how to bring on the Christmas cheer!
We believe that everyone deserves to sleep in the lap of luxury every now and then, especially at Christmas, which is why we are letting you know about our gorgeous three-bedroom Mews House near Hyde Park in London.
Decorated with style and class, this cosy Airbnb rental can sleep up to six people and has a fully equipped kitchen where you will be able to roast your Christmas turkey. Paddington Station is less than a 10-minute walk away.
Lisbon: Bright and sunny apartment close to the river
Beautiful old buildings lit up with colourful Christmas lights, and an endless supply of Bolo-rei – you’ll find all this and more in Lisbon in late December. The city also has dozens of charming Christmas Markets for you to explore where you’ll find quaint souvenirs to take home as well as delicious snacks to munch on during your stay.
Our pick of places to stay in Lisbon for Christmas is this sun-filled brand new apartment which is a stone’s throw from the river and sleeps six people. This perfect Christmas break Airbnb rental apartment has brand new appliances and immaculate finishes – as well as an impressive balcony with views of the River Tagus.
If you’re looking for a place for you and your friends to celebrate Christmas – and drink a few glasses of good local wine – this is the apartment for you. There are plenty of great restaurants and bars in walking distance.
Dubai: Ultra-modern apartment in the prestigious shopping district
For something completely different, how about leaving the cold weather behind and taking the family for a sunny getaway to Dubai for Christmas? The average daily temperature in December is 26 degrees Celsius which means that when you’re not shopping at some of the world’s most famous malls, you can lay in the sun and work on your tan while your friends freeze their butts off back home.
With four bedrooms and three bathrooms, this ultra-modern apartment in Dubai is the ultimate family holiday destination. And, for those who love retail therapy, the added bonus is that this apartment is across the street from the main entrance to City Walk Mall where you’ll find hundreds of exclusive shops, restaurants and leisure activates.
The apartment has modern appliances including a coffee machine, as well as everything you’ll need to prepare light meals – but we have a feeling that if you book it for your Christmas break you’ll be wanting to eat out at the hundreds of surrounding restaurants.
