  • A quiet and peaceful location. Nicola is a lovely and charming host who made us feel comfortable and welcome in her home. Just a short walk to the seaside! We were very pleased to stay here in Portobello.

  • Our stay with Nicola and Millie was wonderful. Her home is beautiful and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Nicola drew a map which showed us the nearest transport links into the city, places to eat and shop in Portobello which was very helpful and well recommended! Most of all, Nicola was a lovely host who we would be delighted to visit again :)

  • We've had 2 wonderful days in EDI at Nicola's. Amazing landlady, amazing home, clean big and located in portobello just outside the centre but reachable in 15min by bus 26. If you're looking for a place almost i town but quiter and than the busy centre, a place well connected to all attractios and nature in EDI and miles and miles of beach to walk in peace this is the place for you! We appreciated Nicola being so pet friedly as we are pets owners as well

  • Nicola is a great host! We enjoyed our stay at her home very much. It was a very nice and clean room and a comfortable house. Her cat and dog are realy nice and we felt us very welcome. It's so nice to feel the difference between the crowded city of Edinburgh and the quiet Portobello. The beach is only a 5 minute walk away, the city 15-20 minutes by bus, but easy to go there. We would recommend Nicola as a host any time. Thank's a lot, Nicola!

  • Our stay with Nicola was short but very comfortable. Her gorgeous house, located 5 minutes from the sea, is a haven of peace and relaxation in a beautiful neighborhood. Our room was very comfortable, with a view over the lovely garden. Nicola was a great host, thoughtful, interesting and knowledgeable. The presence of other friendly guests and cute pets made our stay even more enjoyable. Just wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks again for the great experience!

  • Nicola was a remarkable host. Gracious and compassionate and thoroughly accommodating especially when we needed it most. A fine experience made much better by her knowledge and skill. We would highly recommend staying with her and would be glad to rent from her upon our return to Edinburgh.

  • Nicola was a host at its best. We felt us like at home. Special recommendation for people like dogs and cats.Certainly I will come back. Eating, Drinking, Bus, Beach nearby. And the the best is: you cam understand her-and that in Scotland.

I live with Millie, a flat-coated retriever/cross rescue dog. There is a studio at home, a big open space for Scaravelli-inspired yoga and other practises. I also have a therapy room for practising cranial sacral work. I do not eat meat but am happy for others to eat as they like. I love to travel. The beach is round the corner for frequent escapades with Millie. If I feel like a mid-day hike, Arthur's Seat is not far and for relaxation or hanging out with friends, Espy's or the Beach House invites me back to the water front. I have 2 kids at university.
