Our home is in a pleasant and quiet residential street with parking available at the door. The property has recently been extended and modernised and consists of three bedrooms, lounge, kitchen diner, utility room and large garden. Only one of our bedrooms is let out to guests.
The rooms which are available for the use of guests - a double bedroom, ensuite bathroom and lounge - are decorated in a light, airy style.
Guests are also welcome to use an upstairs lounge area with sofa and stunning views of the hills.
We have a large back garden with a furnished summer house which is available to guests from spring to autumn for relaxation or as a private dining area.
For guests who wish to explore the area we provide two bicycles (with helmets and padlocks).
Interaction with guests
We will be available to give help or advice either by phone, email or in person.
We are happy to provide guests with local information, advice and assistance. We also have a wide selection of books about Edinburgh and Scotland and leaflets about local and national attractions that guests are free to use.
Our aim is to ensure that our visitors feel relaxed, comfortable and happy during their stay.
Other things to note
We can often arrange to collect/drop off guests at the airport or train station and we regularly provide lifts into town when we are available. We do not charge for these services but a donation towards fuel costs would be welcome.
For guests staying longer than three nights we provide clean bed linen and towels on a regular basis.
We can provide a laundry service on request.
- Guests will have private use of main lounge.
- There is ample free parking on street at front of house.
- If available, we will be happy to provide transport into the city. Otherwise very frequent and regular bus services run from the end of our street.

My husband, Ian, and I are retired professionals who love travelling and meeting new people. We are parents and grandparents and have recently extended our home to provide additional and comfortable accommodation for family, friends and other visitors.
We have made many new friends on our travels and have enjoyed having them to stay with us in Edinburgh. We look forward to welcoming more people into our home and having the opportunity to share our beautiful and lively festival city with them.
