The space

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.

Guest access

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.

Caroline and Ian where the perfect hosts. Very friendly. The rooms are set up like a private suit upstairs. There is a great view over the Pentland hills. Bed was very comfortable. A fantastic continental breakfast we served in the morning.

A lovely and hospitable couple with a lovely, spotless home. Caroline and Ian could not have done anymore for us. The bedroom, ensuite, lounge and breakfast were excellent. 10/10 for our stay, very enjoyable

Caroline and Ian provide a high standard of accommodation and I felt very much at home, with the generous use of the lounge space, where I could relax in the evening and enjoy my favourite programmes while having dinner. I felt I had the privacy I needed, for the purpose of my visit. Their home was both warm, cosy and welcoming. The bonus was being offered a car lift into town every morning, where I was based every day. It is the little things that count. I would certainly consider staying with them again, should I return to Edinburgh in the future.

Ian and Caroline's place is absolutely fantastic. Great location with a superb view, and bedroom and bathroom extremely clean and comfortable. They are even better than in the pictures. They were superb hosts and really made me feel at home. I would definitely go back and I can't thank them enough for such a lovely stay.

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.
