The Space

The Accomodation:
I have a 1 bedroom flat in Edinburgh city.
I can offer you the full and private use of a single bed in the lounge with the full use of the kitchen. Cooker/hob, microwave, espresso maker, kettle, fridge and cutlery all at your disposal.
You may also use the washing machine there is no dryer but there is a launderette a couple of blocks away.
The bathroom is shared with me.
Bed linen and towels supplied.
second person will be using the couch ( with full bed linens and towels provided.)

I have wifi in the flat and you are welcome to use my printer.
There is cable tv in the lounge I also have a dvd player which I can set up in the lounge - you are more than welcome to watch any of my dvd's.
The flat is on the second floor of a tenement building and although clean and tidy it is a little dated!

Transport:
- 3 mins to haymarket train station where you can easily get a train to other cities such as Glasgow (45 minutes), Birmingham, York and London (4 1/2 hour journey).
- 1 minute to buses to ALL attractions. Walking distance to Princes street and the old town (castle and museums 15m - 20 minutes walk)
- Taxi rank at the train station
- The airport express bus stops at Haymarket station.
However, Edinurgh is a city best discovered on foot.

Local area:
Convenience stores, charity shops, supermarkets, restaurants, pubs and swimming pool/gym all 1-2 minutes walk.
Cinema/restaurant complex a few minutes away.
.

I can also arrange cheap (£5) tickets to our theatre performances if you are here in our producing season (september to may)

I have maps, attraction information and street A-Z books which you may use to help find your way around this beautiful city.

I have a bedroom in the flat but I can guarantee you privacy in the lounge and kitchen. I will give you a set of keys and you can come and go as you please.

  • Jo's room is an excellent value, especially for the (website hidden) is very kind and relaxed. My sister and I had more than enough room in the room, which includes a small kitchen. She let us use her coffee and other food. The location is great. It's in a nice neighborhood, and about 15 minutes from the castle and center. She was very helpful and responsive when we had questions. Overall we just felt very comfortable there and felt that we were able to very well utilize our time in Edinburgh. Thank you, Jo!

About
Hello! I have lived in Edinburgh for just over 3 years and I love it! Living so close to an airport has given me the travel bug and now I am constantly planning my next trip. This year I visited, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, France, Czech Republic and Austria. I loved every single city I visited in these countries and I am currently thinking about a trip to Russia in 2013. 2012 's big trip will be visiting a few states in USA from ND to NYC. I love coffee shops where I can sit and people watch and dip into a novel or a newspaper. I enjoy walking around new cities ans visiting art galleries and museums. I have recently taken up running and so parks are other places I now add to my to do list. Theatre is my big love, I have worked in the industry since I was 12 years old and have been working in costume for 13 years. Musicals, plays, dance ... you name it I will probably have an opinion on it!
