The Space


Hi :-) We have a lovely modern, freshly decorated, room to rent which has its own private en suite. The flat is on the ground floor and is only a 20 minute bus ride from town. The bus stop is right at the development so very easy travel links! Please dont be put off by how far out our flat looks on the map to the centre - it really only is 20 mins into town. Past guests have commented how much closer to town our property is than it looks on any map.

If you are travelling to Edinburgh airport you can get the airport bus right outside the airport which takes you straight to town and then the number 10 from town which takes you straight to our flat.

The room has a double bed (with all new bedding) ample storage space plus a private en suite. You will also have full use of the kitchen and dining room, spacious seperate living room, family bathroom and 2 large patios. The sunny patio to the back has a 6 seater table which you can enjoy lunch/dinner on when the weather is nice. We have our own double room and private en suite also so no queing to use the bathroom in the mornings!

The flat is based at Western Harbour, Leith and is based right beside the sea. The views from the bottom of our street can be spectacular and you can see right across to the famous Forth Road Bridges. It is a no through road therefore very quiet and the bedroom is situated to the back looking to the courtyard so you can get a peaceful sleep.

Full use of washing machine, dishwasher, iron, kitchen facilities, televisions, free wifi etc. Clean bed linen and towels will be provided. Please note breakfast is not included however there is tea, coffee, sugar etc for you to use.

There is ample on street parking right outside the front door.

The number 10 takes you straight to the main part of town (Princes Street) where major attractions including the Castle, the Royal Mile and the Art Gallery are based. We are very close to a 24 hours asda which is great for food shopping. Ocean Terminal shopping centre is just along the road which hosts the Royal Yacht Britannia.

Myself and my partner work Monday to Friday. We are usually at the gym at nights and then gym and activities/dinner/drinks etc at the weekend.

We are very friendly people, have rented the room before and have met some wonderful people through this. We really do enjoying hosting :-)

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Sarah´s and Greg´s house is lovely. Very clean, new, comfortable and in a very good location. The kitchen is big so you could cook anything you like.
    At the beginning people may think is far from the center but is not.
    Bus number 10 takes only 15 minutes to take you to Princess Street and you have a 24h supermarket close by.
    The house is close to the sea so the views are beautiful. They live in a residential area, very safe and clean and the good thing is a very quiet place so when you are tired of walking all day through the streets of Edinburgh is the best option to rest.
    Sarah and Greg are very nice, kind and friendly people.
    I highly recommend travelers to stay in this lovely house and enjoy the wonderful Edinburgh!

  • My sister and I spent a few days in Edinburgh and stayed with Sarah and Greg. The apartment is very nice and clean, our room was beautiful and comfortable. The ensuite was nice. The best part was definitely the conversations with our wonderful hosts. Not only were they kind, respectful, and helpful... They made us feel at home. We cannot wait to come back to Edinburgh, and when we do- we hope we can stay with Sarah and Greg again. =)

    Hi Roxy, Thank you so much for your wonderful review. It was a pleasure to host you and Maria! You are both wonderful and friendly people and Greg and i would be glad to host you again when you come back ! You have my contact details :-) Take care and enjoy Dublin!! Sarah and Greg x

  • Sarah and Greg's home was so lovely and an absolute gem of a place! We really couldn't have asked for a better stay. Our room was a good size and having an en suite was such a huge plus. Their kitchen and dining room are also very modern and clean.They live in what looks like a fairly new apartment complex right next to the water and is just a 20 minute bus ride to the city center. They have a huge supermarket at walking distance as well as a shopping mall. I highly recommend their place!

  • Sarah and Greg are fantastic hosts and we had the perfect stay at their flat.
    They're friendly, relaxed, thoughtful and really good at recommending places where to eat, drink or places to visit.
    It was very easy to get to their place, and also to go to the main attractions. Specially if you're looking to stay in a very nice, open and quiet but not so touristy area.
    Room and bathroom were spotless and the kitchen was great to make our meals.
    I absolutely recommend this place for those who want to have a lovely, quiet and enjoyable time in Edinburgh!

    Thanks guys - was a pleasure having you stay and glad that you enjoyed your stay!! Thanks for the great review - all the best for 2014 :-) Sarah and Greg

  • Sarah and Greg are the most wonderful hosts and I really enjoyed my time with them. They were friendly, helpful, and overall they really contributed to making what turned out to be a fantastic week in Edinburgh. Their place is absolutely stunning and is also very well located. My room was perfect - very comfy bed, lots of storage space including ample space to hang my clothes, and beautiful decor. I highly recommend their place for anyone thinking of going to Edinburgh - Sarah and Greg will make you feel at home. I will certainly be contacting them next time I'm in town.

  • Sarah and Greg were very helpful and friendly. The room and the house were spotless. Very nice comfy bed and great en suite bathroom. The shower was incredibly good ! The building is in a nice quiet area near the harbour so you can get away from the city noises.
    Sarah went out of her way to make us feel welcome and she made sure we were happy with everything. Highly recommended ! Thanks Sarah.

  • Sarah and Greg are all very hospitality, kind and respectful. The room is very clean and new. Look exactly the same as photos. I will definitley stay there again if I visit Edinburgh.

  • My wife and I booked with Sarah and Greg for 4 nights to explore the amazing town of Edinburgh. We were quite amazed by the room, the price, and the hospitality! Everything about our stay exceeded our expectations. The apartment is very modern, spotlessly clean, and well decorated. Sarah and Greg greeted us upon arrival, gave us a tour of the space, and gave us many suggestions of how to get around, and what to see in Edinburgh. They are both extremely knowledgeable about the area, which was quite helpful because my wife and I had never been before. The place was a short bus ride from the heart of the city (3 pounds round-trip), easy to find, close to a huge mall and a 24 hour supermarket. We were given a set of keys so that we could come and go as we pleased. Sarah and Greg are warm and friendly people, eager to make sure we were completely comfortable. We arranged a night to hang out, which I'm glad we did, because we had a great time sharing whiskey and wine, talking and getting to know each other! We would STRONGLY recommend staying with Sarah and Greg!

  • I really had a great time in Edinburgh as well because of this lovely accommodation. Our room has been well prepared and there has always been a very nice contact between us. If I went to Edinburgh again I wouldn't hesitate to live there again. To everyone who wants to get on a trip to this beautiful city I recommend living at that accommodation. By the way: Price is great! Thanks Sarah and best regards from Germany

I work as an estate agent and in my spare time i enjoy nice meals out and going to the gym. I love to bake in my spare time and can often be found flicking through recipe books :-) I love going to the theatre when i can. I started to learn spanish last year and have taken this up again after my holiday to Spain and am hopefully learning (slowly!) My partner is a taxi driver and he also enjoys the gym through the week and weekends. He loves to watch (and play!) football. We love to travel and are hoping to visit Paris again next year. We were there last year for 5 days and although we done a lot, we feel there is still so much to do! It really is a beautiful city. We are very friendly laid back people and will help make your stay in Edinburgh great! We will make sure that you feel welcome and have fresh towels and bedding. We will just leave you to do your thing if thats what you would like however we love to meet new people and love having meals/drinks with guests if they have any free time. You can have keys to come and go as you please. Feel free to ask us anything or we can advise on the best places to go :-)
