Our bungalow is 2 minutes walk from Portobello beach and only 7 minutes by train from the city centre.We offer a double room with an extra single bed, basic independent kitchen facilities for self catering and access to a shared bathroom. Family friendly.
We have been completely renovating our bungalow so your room has just been refurbished and has its own small kitchen (with hob, fridge, sink, kettle, microwave) and own access to a sunny, enclosed back garden. Down the hall is a shared family bathroom, although the family have access to another bathroom upstairs also. All linen and basic kitchen supplies are included in the price.
Guests will have access to their room, their own kitchen, the sunny back garden and a shared downstairs bathroom.

We are a family of two adults, two teenage children and two lovely lurcher dogs so there is usually someone around. We will welcome guests on arrival and thereafter offer any help or advice we can about good things to see and do locally or further afield. Depending on what we are up to, we may well invite guests along to join us if they are free.
The space is self-catering but we provide some basic supplies (tea,coffee, basic cereal, milk, orange juice, a few eggs, oil, vinegar, salt, pepper etc.) so guests won't be stuck if they haven't managed to go to a shop.
We are a fairly relaxed family so probably the only house rule is for quiet between 11pm and 8am so if coming in late we would just ask people to be fairly quiet as we may be asleep.
We have been hosting with Airbnb for over two years now and have found it a wonderfully rewarding experience. I really enjoy meeting the people who visit us as it is wonderful to learn a little bit about them and have a snapshot of their lives. I also feel extremely lucky to live where we do and I really enjoy sharing that.
I travelled widely before having children (including five years spent living near Bilbao in the Basque Country/ northern "Spain") and Airbnb allows me to still feel like I have travelled somewhere vicariously, while never really leaving my own home.
I now work as an English teacher as well as offering life coaching and mindfulness training while my partner is a metal worker and our children are at secondary school. We have a busy household but live in a lovely quiet neighbourhood. We'd be happy to welcome you to our home.
