We have a lovely 5 bedroom family house in the desirable Edinburgh location of Morningside, a short bus ride to the city center and a 5 minute walk to local Morningside amenities. It is also right next to beautiful country walks that give fantastic views over Edinburgh city.
Our house has 4 double bedrooms and one single attached to one of the doubles, perfect for families. We are a retired couple who love having people to stay and will welcome everyone into our lovely family home. There is one bathroom and toilet and another separate toilet. The bathroom has an electric shower so there is always hot water!
We offer guests sole use of one of our sitting rooms, with a coal fire and flat screen TV. Guests can also use the kitchen and dining room and the garden with heater during the lovely summer months.
We offer a lovely breakfast at £6pp and dinner at £10pp, we love to cook and believe we offer a great taste of Scotland or Italy or whatever you fancy (please give notice and dietary requirements).
Our house is out of the city center which offers a lovely calm friendly feeling, but there is a bus stop just a 2 minute walk along the road which will take you into town in 20 minutes.
We also have free Wifi available and offer towels to all our guests.
Our house is very pet friendly and we have one dog and one cat, both very friendly and used to visitors and any pets are welcome with guests.
Please be aware that the pricing is per room, based on up to two people sharing.
We really love to have people to stay and will love to welcome you into our lovely house.
We are very relaxed and want everyone to enjoy themselves. There is no specific rules other than to have respect for everyone in the house and your surroundings, otherwise please feel welcome and enjoy your stay!
My mother and me are very happy when we stayed the house. The host is very nice. I must live there when I will come Edinburgh next time. Recommendation . The breakfast is very nice. The room is very clean and warm.
Lovely is really the right word for this place!
The entire home felt so cosy, and our room was super cute!
Perfect location as well to take a bus downtown in only a few minutes.
Thank you Marianne and Terrence for your kindness (and the help on printing the boarding passes !).
I was made to feel very welcome and look forward to returning.Marianne has a lovely home in a beautiful part of Edinburgh a 10 minute bus ride from Princess Street.
This was a great base to explore Edinburgh. 10 mins away from the nearest bus stop and then £3.50 for a day's travel ticket meant we covered all the sites. Marianne and Terry were very welcoming and knowledgeable about where to go and what to see. The room was comfy and spacious. Simply home from home. Thoroughly recommended.
Marianne was an amazing host and made my friends and I feel at home in her lovely house. Our room was perfect with a nice bathroom and comfortable beds. Marianne greeted us by making us tea and scones and telling us about Edinburgh. Her house is located close to Edinburgh, just a short bus ride away. She has an adorable dog and was kind enough to have dinner with us one evening. It was great talking to her and her husband. Overall it was a lovely stay and I would definitely recommend her. If I ever go back to Edinburgh in the near future I would definitely want to stay here again.
OMG Marianne and Terry are the nicest people! We were greeted with a cup of tea and scones and jam that Marianne is well known for. Their home is quaint , clean and very homely. Even Titus the dog made us feel welcome - he opened the door for us
I am a recently retired childminder and live in a lovely family home with my husband Terry, who has also recently retired. We love our warm family home, but unfortunately all of our children have grown up and flown the nest, so we now have 4 great bedrooms available to rent. We are very social and love having guests round for dinner as I love cooking. We also love to travel and are making the most of our retirement by travelling around and seeing the world. We love to meet new people, but respect our guests' need for space and privacy, and welcome everyone into our lovely home.
