I was warmly welcomed by Nicola in her lovely and peaceful house and I had a great stay. The house is comfortable, very pretty and full of charming details and you can even get cuddles from Millie the dog and Slippers the cat! I will definitely come back when I go back to Portobello!
Thanks Nicola for having contributed to such a perfect weekend!
In that house everything is just perfect: the smell, the light, the look, the view, the interior, and, last but not least the inhabitants. I stayed two weeks and felt as comfortable as possible.
Portobello is an older part of the city with lovely victorian homes. The beach, shops, bank, bus stations and restaurants are near by, even a small whole foods market is right around the corner. And the church next to the park is catholic (if someone is interested to join the mass).
I had two nights with Nicola at the end of August. Her house is one of the most beautiful I have stayed in. It is on a quiet street, close to a very god bus route (20 mins into Edinburgh). Nicola had no problem with me arriving when she was out for the evening and gave very good instructions. Slippers the cat and Millie the dog were great too. I would definitely stay there if I am in Edinburgh again
Nicola is the best host I've ever met, she was very friendly, considerate and knowledgeable! I enjoyed having conversations with her! Her house is very comfortable, super clean and beautiful, also very close to the beach. Pets were friendly to me as well! She also spent her precious time for me to help to enrich my MA research! Very appreciated!! And I had a very pleasant time :)
I Have spent few days at Nicola's home. It is a very lovely home.
It is very Portobello and it is a quiet place.
Nicola is friendly . She tries to help you whenever she can.
I strongly recommend it.
Thanks for everything
I stayed with Nicola for two short nights. Should have stayed longer! I felt right at home and the single bed I had was fantastic. I really enjoyed the conversation over breakfast with Nicola as she is so easy to talk with.
Nice location and about 20 minutes to city center. Edinburgh is so beautiful and friendly I recommend it.
Best airbnb experience yet.
Thanks again Nicola, hope to be back one day soon!
Nicola was wonderful. She was very welcoming and hospitable. Her bnb is clean and comfortable. it's only about 15min to the city by bus- maybe double in peak hour. But Portebello is a lovely place to stay and walk around.
What a wonderful experience I had staying with Nicola. Her house is beautiful and inspirational and Nicloa is a lovely and caring woman. I have met her friend Christine Borg, who stayed the same night teaching Yoga. Won't forget that evening with three women sharing for three hours in a sacred context. Love and Blessings
I really enjoyed my days in Portobello in Nicola´s house. I felt like visiting a friend. The flat was cosy and the sitting-room with a view over Arthurs´s Seat was beautiful! The sea is just around the corner and I loved walking along the seashore all the way to Musselborough. It was easy to go to Edinburgh by bus as well. Thank you Nicola. I hope I can come back one day.
I really loved my stayed here, Nicola is an excellent host, she is very kind and made me feel like home. Her house is lovely, clean, comfortable and well located. This place is one of the reasons why my visit to Edinburgh was unforgetable.
