Enjoy staying in the centre of Edinburgh with all the cosiness of the Scottish countryside!
The flat is in a historical building constructed in 1870, perfectly located to explore Edinburgh. The street is a cobblestoned cul-de-sac with no thru-traffic, producing a noise-free environment. We're near the best restaurants, shops, parks & attractions!
We're 3-min walk from Haymarket Station, which provides the perfect location to explore Edinburgh and seamless travel to/from Airport (15-20min).
We are located on a very quiet street, right in the heart of Edinburgh. The flat is very homey and cosy! The guest bedroom is the cosiest and quietest room in the house. The living room is filled with Chinese antiques and other pieces that we've been collecting over the past six years of traveling the world. My favourite part of the living room however, is the wood burning fireplace, which we use to escape the Edinburgh winters.
*3 Guest Bookings: Please note, the 3rd guest will have a pull-out sofa bed (single - please see pictures for reference) that is located in the lounge area. The lounge has a door that can be shut at any time, so the 3rd guest will have privacy.
**The sofa bed is not available for two person bookings.**
The guests have full access to the well-equipped kitchen. Like the rest of the flat, the kitchen room has a door which can be closed for added privacy. We encourage our guests to use anything they'd like in the kitchen. We are surrounded by supermarkets and small international grocery stores and some guests take advantage of that by cooking all their meals. Cooking at the flat is also a great way to save extra money!
Lastly, the shower room provides a great way recover from the day's adventures in the greatest city in the world. Previous guests have enjoyed the shower room and some have specifically mentioned it in their reviews!
We can't forget to mention our sweet little kitty cat named Lucy. She is a Russian Blue which is a hypo-allergenic breed - so no need to worry if a guest is allergic. We want our guests to feel free to play with Lucy as much as they want. She has a temperament that is very rare -- you can touch and pet her anywhere and she will not mind. She is the sweetest kitty! At the moment, her eyes are changing from yellow to green. It's quite fascinating!
We are within 5-20 min walking or 3-10 min bus to the following:
Edinburgh Old Town
National Museum of Scotland
Princes Street Gardens
Royal Botanical Gardens (35 min walk - but well worth the walk!)
Edinburgh International Conference Centre
Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art
Water of Leith
The Royal Scottish Academy
Edinburgh Zoo (Tip: save £4/ticket by booking in advance)
Canals (Edinburgh's greatest secret)
...and many more.
We can help you plan the places to visit during your stay -- let us know!
Guests have complete access to the full kitchen, living room, WC, and shower room. The guest bedroom and living room can be closed off from the rest of the flat. This gives the guests privacy if they so desire.
We will provide you with everything you need. If there is something specific that you require, please message me before arriving so I can check. Some of the things we have that guests don't ask for are: portable phone chargers, SIM cards, plug converters, tissues, aspirin, band-aids, etc.
Our goal is to make you feel as though this is your home also. So please don't hesitate to ask us if you need anything!
Please refer to the amenities section for a complete list of what is offered.
We will provide you with the essentials, such as hair dryer, plug converters, towels, iron (awesome iron, by the way!), etc. We will have almost anything that you should need, so don't hesitate to ask!
I update the calendar daily, so if your travel dates are available on the calendar, then the flat is available for you to book. If you need to store your luggage at the flat, that is also not a problem. I strongly recommend using the Instant Booking feature. Please message me if you have any questions!

We want our guests to feel as though they're at a home away from home. In addition to the standard "common sense" rules, we ask that guests treat us and our property with mindfulness and respect. In the 6 years we've been using Airbnb, we've met so many incredible people, and not once have we had any issues.

Sarah and I are originally from Houston, Texas but moved to London (work transfer) in 2012. After a couple years we decided we'd take a break from London and practice our French in Paris. We ended up staying almost a year before returning to London, none the better at French. Et voilá.
During the first month back in London, we took a weekend holiday to Edinburgh. We both fell in love with Edinburgh within 5 minutes of arriving at Waverly Station. The following month we returned and stayed with the same Airbnb hosts for 4 weeks -- during which we decided to stay and not return to London.
FUN FACT: Sarah and I were featured on a popular American television show on the network HGTV, called House Hunters International. We filmed in Houston and London, as the premise of the show follows expats as they find a new property abroad. For those who are familiar with the show, make sure to ask us about it and we can spill all the secrets of the show. And for those guests who are interested, we have the episode on DVD. But please, no autograph requests :)
We have been using Airbnb to travel since late 2011. In 2015, we decided to start hosting guests in our previous flat. In November of 2016, we bought a flat with our future Airbnb guests in mind! :)
There's nothing more that we enjoy than to host guests while they visit this magical city. We love meeting people from all over and sharing stories and adventures. Our goal as hosts is to make the guests' experience all the better!
Come visit us!
