Gorgeous fresh double bedroom with private en suite 20 mins from town centre. kitchen facillities, clean bedding and towels :0)
FABULOUS DOUBLE BEDROOM WITH PRIVATE EN SUITE AND FREE WI FI 20 MINUTES FROM TOWN!!
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!
If you are travelling to Edinburgh airport you can get the airport bus or tram 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 with toilet sink and shower. 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 help yourself to.
There is ample free on street parking right outside the front door.
The number 10 bus 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 a 10 min walk 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 and have met some wonderful people through this. We really do enjoying hosting :-)
Guest have access to all communal rooms including living room with tele and kitchen including cooker, microwave, fridge and freezer. We also have outside dining for when the weather is nice! We provide clean towels and free wi fi. There is not hairdryer in the room however please ask and you can share mine :-) We do not provide breakfast (as like to keep our prices down and we work in the mornings also) however help yourself to tea and coffee and use our kitchen facilities!
Interaction with Guests
We love a good chat with our guests and can advise on what to see in Edinburgh however we do work Monday to Friday and go to the gym most nights therefore guests will have the house to themeselves a lot. We are not a hotel and let guests come and go as they please:-) We will be there to meet you when you arrive however depending on your departure (if not we will make other arrangements as we like to be as flexible as possible) however we may not be there when you leave therefore you can just post the keys through the letter box :-)
There is a welcome letter in your room with details on how to work all the facilities :-)
The road we live on is a dead end and is very quiet so you get a great night sleep. Lovely neighbourhood - very safe. We know a lot of our neighbours and everyone is really friendly. A perefect place to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle (and noise!) of the city centre.
You can get the number 10 bus (which comes right into our complex) into town. Its only a 20 minute bus journey to the main part of town (Princes Street). I work in the main part of town and get the bus in the mornings which is no hassle at all. Edinburgh is really quite compact and most things are within walking distance to the town centre.
Other Things to Note
We love hosting and try our best to make it a great experience for guests. Always happy to help with any enquiries.
Guest will be given a set of keys and they are free to come and go as they please :-)

My friend and I (two Danish girls aged 18 and 19) had a lovely time at Sarah and Greg's. It was our first time travelling with Air bnb and we were very pleasantly surprised. We arrived in the evening and felt from the beginning very welcome. They showed us around and gave us some insider tips to the city! Their place is right by the harbour and the view from there was stunning. The busstop is only a minute walk from their flat, and it runs frequently and will take you straight to town. The room was beautiful, clean and tidy, and we had everything we needed.
Sarah and Greg are very nice people, and we very much enjoyed our stay at their flat.
Sarah and Greg are very experienced in Airbnb. You can see that from the first moment they show you the room you will stay, an introduction paper was prepared for guests and there were tons of Edinburgh activities and maps in the drawer. They are talkative and trustworthy for sure! I would definitely recommend them as hosts, their house is near the ocean, very refreshing and calm area part of town. You can directly walk to city center if you want to live the city fulfilling, there is also Royal Yatch Britannia near their house so you can visit that as well.
Sarah and Greg made us feel like we're home. The place is very very nice and we felt in love with Edinburgh. Great 5 days. Thank you guys.
Sarah and Greg are great hosts, very welcoming and hospitable. The room was super clean and comfortable and with the ensuite you feel like you are in a luxurious hotel room. Sarah was very communicative and helped us with directions and Greg is a good source for activities in and around Edinburgh. The bus is conveniently located almost right at the doorstep and drives into the heart of Edinburgh. Leith itself is however also quite nice and a stay at Sarah's and Greg's place also allows to see a part of Edinburgh that is less touristy. On the way walking from their place to the centre of Edinburgh one may encounter many cosy local lunch and coffee places and pubs and if the weather allows for it, this is definitely an enjoyable walk walk to make.
Lovely people, lovely flat, lovely neighbourhood! Definitely recommend it to anybody who wants a nice time in Edinburgh without staying in town centre (which is still easily reachable).
Loved the area (I would recomend staying in this area as its only 20 min to city centre )and our hosts were awesome. The room was comfortable and loved the onsuite bathroom. There was lots to see and do near the apartment so we got to see a different area of Edinburgh. The buses were a quick and easy way to get to places.
Sarah and Greg were both very kind and helpful. Sarah gave us excellent directions to her house from the airport and made sure we had a comfortable stay. Greg was a great source of places to visit while we were there and took time out of his day to talk to us and give us suggestions on where to visit next. The room was very nice and had a private bathroom with an awesome shower. The location was excellent with a bus stop right around the corner that went straight to the city center.

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 :-)
