After a hectic day at The Fringe it was great to return to Julia's apartment - either on foot or bus. We had breakfast on her sunny balcony. The flat is well equipped and it was lovely to have breakfast items provided. We were very comfortable, thank you.

Julia's place is terrific. It is really close to the city center and to other attractions as well, and has easy access to biking and walking paths (St. Mark's Path and the Water of Leith). The flat is in terrific shape and is lovely and well-appointed. It is also in a great neighborhood...really safe and so quiet. Julia's communication is terrific and prompt. She answered my questions really quickly, even when she was out of the country. We had breakfast accommodations and some snacks left for us, which was really nice, as we didn't have to go out right away and buy groceries. I would highly recommend staying here and I will absolutely stay here again the next time I'm in Edinburgh.

Julia User ProfileJulia is a superhost.

Born and raised in Germany, but have lived in Scotland since 2000.

I like to travel and tend to do it (mainly within Europe) quite a bit both for pleasure and for business.
After plenty of positive experiences with airbnb as a guest, I decided to rent out my small city apartment to fellow travellers whenever possible.
Edinburgh is a fantastic city and I am glad I moved there after years in the countryside. There is a lot to see and do, so if you haven't been there yet, come and see it yourself.

I am a very sociable and easygoing person who likes to meet new people.
For me to be a host is part of my personality since I like to help and to make people feel good and apreciated. I am bilingual (German and English) with a pretty good level of French as well as some understanding of Spanish.
