Janie was a phenomenal host! She was extremely welcoming and accommodating to a late check-in time. She gave really great suggestions for what to do in the area and was super friendly the entire visit

Janie was very detailed and proactive when it came towards our check-in. Her place was also easy to find and convenient. Upon check-in, she personally sat us down to cover the great places in Edinburgh and even gave us maps to take with us. It was very personalized! Then she was also very fuss-free regarding the use of her kitchen, a respite from having to eat outside for a few days consecutively. We made simple dinners for the 2 nights we were there. The room we stayed in was also pretty big and came fully furnished with clean towels, laundered sheets and hairdryer as promised (though it would help if you can provide one in the room just in case you head out and we forgot to ask you earlier!) Love the kitchenette that had everything you need and her generosity. Thank you again for a great stay!

It was a real Airbnb experience, Janie met us in the flat and she gave us city maps as well as an explanation for the bus routes and some places to visit. She was very friendly and hospitable. We visited all of them and they all were worth it. The room was wider and brighter than the pictures. The home is also so stylish that it makes your staying tasteful and it was so clean. It was just 15 min away from the city centre on foot. You can also find 2 different buses which are so often that it makes it easy to reach the city centre. Having breakfast at home is convenient because it leaves you more time to enjoy the city.

I highly recommend this place to everyone. Janie couldn't have done more and gave me a really warm welcome that I felt at home. It's a lovely house in a quiet road but still with plenty of decent places to eat and drink. To the Waverley station only 15 minutes by bus or 28 ministers on foot. If I'd come back to Edinburgh I definitely choose to stay here again.

Originally from Berlin, Germany, I have lived mainly in Edinburgh and a stint in San Francisco over the last 20 years.

I love Edinburgh and all its beautiful sights and the buzz it has during the festival.

I also enjoy meeting new people from all over the world, so thought I could offer comfortable and convenient accommodation available to people who are interested in enjoying all Edinburgh has to offer, especially during the festival.
