Places to stay in Portobello
Stylishly decorated one bedroom flat with kitchen/living room and balcony. Shared paved garden. Free on-street parking. Situated in the bustling community of Portobello - "Edinburgh's Seaside". Quiet spot just off the High St with many local shops, restaurants and bars. Minutes walk from beautiful seafront with sandy beach and vintage promenade. Very well placed for access to all areas of Edinburgh and coastline to the south. Frequent 24 hour bus service to city centre, 20 minutes away.
Our flat is freshly decorated to a high standard and there is a double sofabed in the living room for extra guests at a small additional cost. We have unlimited broadband and tv with many channels. Four people can sleep comfortably with sofabed, but the flat is compact, not large in size, so may feel small for a group of four for more than a few days.
Portobello has the best of both worlds - a beautiful sandy beach and promenade with Amusement Arcades, swimming pool, gym and Turkish Baths, as well as many shops, a library, restaurants and bars, some with live music. It is also very well located for public transport to the city centre with its many attractions all year round. Arthur's Seat is nearby if in the mood for a bracing walk up to incredible views of the city!
  • Lovely, cosy flat in a great location close to the beach and just a short ride to the city centre. We enjoyed our stay and appreciated the nice decor.

  • This is a spotlessly clean flat right in the middle of Portobello with the beach nearby and excellent local shops and cafes nearby. We had a great time here for a few days and would highly recommend.

  • Fionas place is amazing. Location is perfect and literally any bus in and out of town is a 1 minute walk and Aldi/the beach is a 4 minute walk. The flat was beautiful. stylish , cozy and filled with extras. Attention to detail is key with Fiona she literally has thought of every thing ! Whether it’s ear plugs if the birds wake you up in the morning, board games , cereal or things to go on your toast:). I asked Fiona for a romantic gesture as it was mine and my girlfriend anniversary and again exceeded my expectations! Words can describe how amazing the flat is along with the hosts, will be returning in the future.

    Double room in a 2 bedroom quiet loft apartment at Portobello Beach. It is located 3 miles (5 km) to the east of the city center, easy to commute to the old city by bus. We are surrounded by artisan shops, coffees, restaurants, pubs. The apartment is clean and quiet and the room has a view to the sea. Free street parking.
    The room has a great view to the River of Forth, from the other side of the flat to the Arthur`s Seat and Pentland Hills. An utterly charming, wonky area of Edinburgh. The beach is kinda gorgeous, even the weather ain`t. In sunny days 2 miles of golden sand making it perfect for swimming (especially if you are a cold water swimmer :) and sunbathing. There are always community run activities on the go. And you can`t miss the Victorian grandeur of Portobello Baths, crowned with one of the only original and still functioning Turkish bath.
    There is an Indian take away (Mint) below the building, open till 11 pm. And a convenient shop for the basics. The biggest and cheapest shop (5 min. walk, seen from the window) the Aldi. Best kitchen Guild of Forester 2 min. walk. Best pub food Epsy at the promenade.
  • Clean space, comfortable bed/room. Very pleasant stay :]

  • An amazing location just beside Portobello beach and a bus ride away from the city center. Agnes is a wonderful host who strives to make the stay an enjoyable experience. The kitchen is well stocked and we got a lot of space during the stay. Further, she gave me a lot of tips for the city tour. Would recommend this place to all.

  • Lovely spacious rooms with more than enough space for 4 adults. Loved the little thoughtful touches, mini Christmas tree and wreath on door made our stay very festive, the home baked banana bread was delicious. This place was the perfect base for us, amenities nearby were ideal and not to far from the city centre. Thank you Candida

    Our Scandi inspired apartment is perfect for a couple but also has a sofa bed . We are lucky to enough to be right beside the sea and Portobello Beach but have great transport links to the City Centre so you can be at Edinburgh’s famous sites such as Edinburgh Castle, The Royal Mile, Grassmarket and Princes Street in 15 minutes. There is free street parking which is rare in Edinburgh although we suggest using the excellent Edinburgh transport system to get into town.
    The apartment consists of 4 rooms. The lounge is very spacious with 2 sofas, a rocking chair and a large TV. There is also a very unique photograph which you might recognise from international airports! The bedroom is well sized with a double bed and fitted wardrobes. The window looks on to the sea if you peek out. The bathroom has a 3 piece suite and a shower over the bath. The kitchen has all the equipment you need to cook a delicious meal and a great little dining table to gather around. We hope you enjoy our home which combines the fun and quirkiness of Portobello seaside with the elegance and history of Edinburgh.
    Portobello Beach, a few miles from Edinburgh city centre, is a charming seaside suburb, with two miles of sand making it perfect for swimming and sunbathing. The Seaside Award-winning beach draws large crowds in good weather and, along with the promenade, hosts a number of popular events, including the annual Big Beach Busk, international volleyball competitions and triathlon events. The Portobello Kayaking and Sailing Club is based here, along with RowPorty, a community-run coastal rowing club. Look out also for the splendid Victorian swimming pool, featuring an original Aerotone and Turkish baths. There is a choice of several bars and cafés on the promenade, with further options on Portobello’s bustling high street, including quality independent restaurants and gift shops. There is a market in Brighton Park on the first Saturday of every month, selling fresh local produce as well as crafts. Portobello’s elegant Georgian and Victorian architecture is protected within the conservation area and there are a number of attractive parks to enjoy. An independent town until 1896, Portobello retains its unique character and sense of identity, making a trip to Edinburgh’s Seaside an essential part of your visit to Scotland’s capital city.
  • This was one of our best Airbnb experiences by far. The location itself is a gem - it’s right by the water and there are loads of local shops and restaurants around. The space of the apartment is gorgeous and it has everything you need. There are great views of the ocean from the bedroom and the kitchen, and there is ample space to make yourself feel at home. We’ll definitely be coming back to this place!

    Caleb2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • There is everything which one needs for a stay-soaps,towels.The location is just 2 min walk from the beach and you could see the beach from the bedroom window so it gives you a positive feeling when you get up and see the ocean

    Avi2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • The flat is clean and comfortable with good wi-fi. Above all, the location is excellent!

    Peter2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful apartment, lovely host! I'll be back.

    Zuzu2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • Wow. What a beautiful, clean, stylish and much bigger space than we expected! Top notch communication before, throughout and after our stay. Lots of great information too (the yellow folder is gold). A very short walk to the beach, bus stop and supermarket. Highly recommend a meal at The Foresters. You definitely have to stay here. David is a wonderful host. Thank you!

    Wendy2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice apartment, very stylish and roomy, and a great location if you want to be away from the city centre. Bus stop to town is really close by and super quick. We tried the local Fish & Chips recommended in the apartment guide, which were lovely, but we didn't actually end up spending lots of time in Portobello itself. Apartment is really convenient for the local Aldi supermarket, and the kitchen is well equipped, so you can easily cook yourself a nice meal if you fancy a night in. We were there on a pretty cold week, but the apartment was nice and cosy!

    Esther2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • All good as expected.

    Filip2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • The Apartment at Portobello beach, is a true delight! Beautiful view, very clean and cosy interieur. We recommend you all to stay here when you visit Edinburgh, if you want to enjoy the beachside aswell as the citysights.

  • Fantastic apartment, spotlessly clean right overlooking the beach. Great for dogs and we loved the view and were warm and comfortable. Beautifully appointed and can’t wait to come again. Lovely dog friendly restaurants and Greek bakery did lovely breakfast treats a five minute walk away.

    Sarah2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here with our dogs and could not have been happier. The location is amazing, perfect for getting straight onto the beach with the dogs. Communication was great throughout and check in/out was simple and straightforward. Underground parking was a massive plus.

    Judith2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is located on the second floor of a modern block overlooking the amazing beach, we had everything we needed. It was quiet and clean within walking distance of a good Supemarket and I believe some good eating places. We were being fed by family so did not try them but from the outside they looked good. The underground parking is a real plus. Going again would be a pleasure.

    Stephanie2019-12-26T00:00:00Z

    A bright, cosy flat five minutes walk from the beach in Edinburgh with a large double bedroom, a sunny living room, a modern bathroom and a self-contained kitchen. It's fifteen minutes from the city centre / Waverley station by car and thirty minutes by bus. The airport is forty minutes away by car. The street is well served for food and drink with a supermarket, cafes and restaurants and more choice nearby. This is a lovely relaxed part of Edinburgh suitable for city breaks or longer stays.
    This is a second floor flat, accessed by two flights of traditional Edinburgh tenement stairs. It looks onto the street which features a varied and eclectic collection of housing. The bedroom and living room are both sizeable and sunny. I have lots of books in both rooms which you're welcome to borrow while you're visiting. I also have a TV, a small collection of DVDs and a DVD player for chilly nights in. The kitchen is compact but fully equipped with pans, crockery and cutlery and you're welcome to use the facilities (and cook books!) including the washing machine. I'm happy to provide towels if that would be useful. I even have a frisbee if you're after a game or two on the beach.
    The street is well served for both food and drink with a supermarket, a cute neighbourhood restaurant and a quirky pub. The beach is five minutes walk away and also offers two lovely cafes, suitable for families or solo diners, an amusement arcade and a Victorian swimming pool with Edinburgh's oldest Turkish baths. There's an excellent pub fifteen minutes walk along the seafront, The Dalriada and a number of lovely cafes, bars and restaurants on Portobello's High Street. The street is pretty quiet most of the year round though can get busy in the summer as it's one of the main thoroughfares from the high street to the beach. It's also busy on Bonfire Night and New Year's Eve with visitors to the bonfires and fireworks displays on the beach.
  • Claire’s place was perfect! Very spacious and well positioned to enjoy Portobello and Edinburgh. It was beautifully clean and Claire went to a lot of trouble to be available so we could check in and left us some lovely treats. Hopefully we’ll be back!

    Clare2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This flat is a 5 star gem. It is comfortable, well equipped, sparkling clean and very warm in this bitter weather. Its' location is ideal for getting into the centre of Edinburgh: bus stops are less than 5 mins walk, or for being by the sea at Portobello on its' excellent beach. Supermarket, independent food shops and shops selling lovely things are very close by. Claire's communication is the best we've come across in renting many AirBnB properties.

    Pam2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Claire's place is absolutely perfect. The flat is homey, spacious, and cozy. We had excellent communication with Claire during our stay and wished we could have stayed longer. She made sure we had everything we could possibly need. The location is perfect and it was a lovely place to stay during Hogmanay.

    Sam2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Claire is a lovely host. She was super informative and enthusiastic about recommending things to see/do/eat in Edinburgh. A bus stop that will get you to the city center in about 20-30 minutes is nearby, and Portobello is a nice, quiet neighborhood near the sea. I would recommend this flat to anyone.

    Dawson2019-12-16T00:00:00Z

    Julia2019-11-03T00:00:00Z

    Dinant2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is a charming, roomy, second story apartment in Portobello, located a stones’ throw from the local beach and promenade. It has a lovely ‘homely’ feel to it and has all that you expect by way of amenities. There is a nice kitchen, washing machine, iron, etc. I was there in the middle of summer so didn’t need any heating but there is a gas fireplace and other heating. The bedroom is very roomy. There is a shower, but no bath, in the bathroom. I stayed in Portobello because of nearby family so the location as great. But Portobello is very well-served by buses into the city center. And there are plenty of shops, supermarkets and cafes/bars in the main Street of Portobello. And the promenade along the beach front was lovely to walk or stroll along - in summer at least!

    A delightful bright self contained studio with patio area and private access. Just a few minutes walk from Portobello, which has many restaurants and cafes if you wish to stay local, there are also a variety of shops and galleries well worth a visit. Bus and train links to Edinburgh city centre are a short walk from your accommodation.
    The studio has a kitchen with microwave, 2 ring induction hob, coffee maker, kettle, toaster, sink, fridge and all necessary utensils. There is a super comfy, super kingsize, bed which if needed can be changed to 2 singles on request. We also have a room with a small double bed available which sleeps 1 person. The second bedroom needs to be requested if you wish to use it and there is an additional charge of £25 per night. You also have a private patio area for 'sunny morning' breakfasts, although it is Scotland.
    Portobello is amazing with its promenade and High street, providing varied shops,restaurants and bars.
  • Polly and I had an amazing stay . The place was much bigger than we expected. Clean, warm and very comfortable. You can see the sea from the end of the road and it’s easy to walk into portobello high street or one bus the central Edinburgh . Seamless check in and check out. Lynn was very accommodating. We’ll be back :)

    A2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely amazing place, spotless, quiet, huge bed, lovely hosts. Situated in a great location - 3min from the beach, 10min walking to Portobello high street, 25min by bus to Edinburgh city centre. Highly recommended.

    Robert2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Really recommend this place, my boyfriend and I had a lovely stay. Beautiful decor, great kitchen space, lovely bathroom with really good water pressure and amenities! Quick communication, private access, and nice area. 40 mins by bus or 18 mins by car to central ish Edinburgh, so relatively convenient. Thank you for having us!

    Isabelle2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Lynn and Kenny have made their most to make you feel right at home. It is so well decorated and so well furnished that you'll want to spend time inside drinking tea sitting on a comfy sofa facing the stove. It is a few hundred yards from a beautiful sandy beach and numerous pubs. The bus will take you to downtown Edinburgh in 35/40 minutes depending on the traffic but this is worth living there as it is definitely a quiet and picturesque place. We loved it.

    Welcome to my sunny flat in beautiful Portobello, 5 steps from a lovely park, 10 minutes walk to the sandy beach and 15-20 minutes by bus or car to Edinburgh city centre and castle. Free parking at flat. Enjoy! I hope you love it as much as I do.
    My flat is a PEACEFUL place, just 15-20 minutes away from the bustle of the city. If you want nature, you've got it - STUNNING VIEWS of Arthur's Seat, (Edinburgh's mini- mountain) and the award-winning park in front has a swan pond and weekly 5km race, organised by Park Run UK. Plus the park was recently featured on the BBC’s Springwatch documentary who filmed the resident family of OTTERS! The LONG SANDY BEACH is beautiful in all seasons. Perfect for running, strolling, thinking, playing - plus eating good food and drinking coffee or a fine craft beer. If you want to COOK, the kitchen is fully equipped - and if not, Portobello has a good selection of BARS and RESTAURANTS. And the choice in Edinburgh is endless! Please note - I do NOT have TV or internet!! But there are lots of BOOKS and board games and wifi in most bars and cafes. My flat offers the best of both worlds - a tranquil hideaway close to Scotland's capital.
    My flat is the neighbourhood of Portobello, known as Edinburgh's seaside. It has great cafes and bistros and bars and independent shops and big supermarkets.....not to mention an amazing golden sand beach!
  • Emma is ultra reactive and gives absolutely all the details necessary for a serene arrival. The keys are in a box, which allows a fairly flexible arrival and departure. The apartment is close to the beach and buses are very accessible to get to the city center. The state of cleanliness is impeccable and everything is thought of by the host so that nothing is lacking: equipment (oven, microwave, kettle, washing machine, heating mattress) down to the smallest details (shower gels and toothpaste, milk , jam, coffee, tea, pasta and rice, oil and spices, and even cookies for breakfast). All you have to do is enjoy! I highly recommend this accommodation which is up to (and even above) what you would expect from a great host!

    Marie2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Emma’s place is in a great location near lots of bus stops! The apartment is clean, neat and gorgeous. Has everything you may need. Would recommend! Just note that the bathroom is very cold

    Tyra2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent apartment in Edinburgh, Portobello. about 40-45 minutes walk to the center by bus (around the corner) - 15-20. there is a supermarket nearby. Free package directly opposite the entrance to the apartment. according to the description of the apartment, in fact, you enter like a house, from the street to the door and to the second floor. 5+ amenities (like at home), even a washing machine with built-in dryer. I can safely recommend this apartment!

    Maxim2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous flat, really well located to get the bus back and forth from Edinburgh city. So many lovely little personal touches.

    Olivia2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Emme is very friendly and always with quick responses. The flat itself if very cosy and cute, and was immaculate when we arrived. Perfect flat for a trip to Edinburgh when you don't always want to be in the bustling city!

    Katherine2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Cute apartment, close to high street in portobello and the beach. Apartment is a described and has everything you need. Enjoyed being able to make a coffee each morning which was a treat. Would recommend staying here

    Ryan2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely apartment everything you need for a relaxing stay

    Janet2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Emma’s flat is lovely and the perfect cheaper option to stay if visiting Edinburgh city centre, the bus stop is easy to get to and doesn't take that long. We loved the personal touches and felt really welcome. Would definitely stay here again :)

    Wonderful light double room in Edinburgh's friendly seaside neighbourghood of Portobello. With the sea front at the bottom of the road, it is the perfect escape from the city while being close enough to get in to town for the full city break experience.
    I stay in the house most of the time but that means I can help you with information about local attractions, or things around the flat. The shared living room and kitchen are yours to use and you can come and go as you like. Feel free to light the fire, pop on the telly and snuggle in for an evening under a blanket as the darker nights draw in.
    The beach and promenade are at the end of the road, and is a highlight all year long. There are swimming baths with a Turkish bath 5mins away, and the sea front is a lovely place to cycle or walk to take in the sea air and views. There are plenty of great coffee shops, beach cafes, pubs and boutique shops along the high street as well as a hub of local charity shops for those who love a bargain!
  • Naomi is a lovely host and her home is very cute! It is located very close to the beach meaning you can easily nip to the beach. Also only a 20 minute bus ride from the city centre of Edinburgh, and the bustop is only about 2 minutes walk away.

    Madalena2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely flat in a great location, we enjoyed staying here immensely and seeing the Edinburgh seaside. Can’t recommend enough! Thank you Naomi

    Rebecca2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice apartment in a very nice area of Edinburgh. The welcome of Naomie will have brought a little sun in this rainy week!

    Lucie2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect accommodation for either an overnight stay or a base to explore the city. Clean and comfortable - it was good to be close to our friends near by and to have the privacy of the flat to ourselves on our return. Would thoroughly recommend.

    Sheena2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • This is a gem - ideal for relaxing away from the city. Comfortable bed but little space to store or hang clothes - darling claw foot tub for a nice bath or shower kitchen diner well equipped and spacious and comfy couches in the lounge

    Estelle2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great room in a lovely flat right by the sea with easy access to the city by bus. Naomi was friendly and replied quickly to messages. Perfect weekend getaway!

    We offer a lovely room with a super comfy king size bed. Share breakfast with the family or at your leisure - we will try and tempt you with the delights of porridge and maybe even kippers if you are feeling adventurous although cornflakes and toast are also readily available! We are a family of 5 - a forester, marine biologist and 3 children aged 2,5 and 8. Light floods through large windows of our spacious and high-ceiling top floor apartment in a traditional Victorian building. Comfortably furnished and oak-floored throughout, the apartment is warmed by both central heating and a Swedish wood-burning stove. The apartment is located in Portobello neighbourhood, 5 minutes walk from an expansive stretch of sandy beach. The beach promenade boasts popular cafes and lovely tradition pubs. Portobello is known for its quirky residential lanes and independent shops - butcher, fishmonger, grocers, sweet and craft shops. It is a safe family area which has traditionally been a seaside holiday resort in the summer months. Very frequent buses take 30 minutes to reach the historic city centre with its castle, palace, museums, galleries, ghost tours, cashmere and whisky. But its always nice to come home - to the neighbourhood where the sky meets the sea.
  • I stayed with Sarah, her lovely girls, and their gentle dog Casper for the fall semester of 2019. It was a lovely experience and they’re the warmest and most welcoming people you can imagine. The room was exactly what I needed and not a single bad thing to say about my stay with them. A lovely home full of life and warmth and I would recommend it to anyone who needs a home away from home. Thank you guys! I’ll miss you ♥️

    Sofie2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • This a great place to stay and Sarah is an exceptionally welcoming and kind host.

    Ann2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed with Sarah and her family for about a week. Every day, I talked with them , told them my adventure in Edinburgh and they gave me many helpful advice on travelling. The atmosphere of Sarah's family really makes me feel at home and I am sure they are the best hosts in the world.

    Jennifer,YUNFEI2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy room and appartment in Portobello. Sarah and her 3 daughters as well as her dog prepared us a warm welcome and put much confidence in us. We were real part of the family and could use kitchen and livingroom. The appartment is nearby the bus station to the city and only a few footsteps from the beach. This accomodation gave us the possibility to experience real Scottish lifestyle in combination with the touristic aspects in splendid Edinburgh. A family to fall in love with!

    Susanne2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah and her family are wonderful hosts! They gave me a nice and warm welcome and were very helpful and kind to me. And their dog Casper is the goofiest and cutest dog! I immediately felt like I'm home. The apartment is very big and bright, full of colors and nice details. The room is big and stylish and the king-size bed is extra comfy with a warm and fluffy blanket and pillows. The location was perfect for me! Portobello is a beautiful neighborhood and the beach is only 5-min walk away. The city center is a lot closer than what it looks like on the map. The buses leave every 4-5 minutes and it only takes about 20-25 min to arrive at Princess Street / Old Town. Overall, I'm very happy with my stay at Sarah's place. Sarah and her family truly made it feel like a home away from home for me. Thank you for such a lovely stay!

    Melissa2019-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • My 2nd stay with Sarah and Mark and it was every bit as enjoyable as the 1st time. The bedroom is big and airy with plenty of storage space and the bed is extremely comfortable. Sarah checked in with me before I arrived about what I needed for breakfast and my request was filled by the time I arrived. The flat is situated very close to a good choice of bus routes into the city and the local amenities are great too being only minutes away from a beautiful beach. The flat is well equipped with all your needs, towels are soft and fluffy, the bath has a great shower and the kitchen is the real heart of the home. Would highly recommend this place and look forward to booking here again for my next visit.

    Robin2019-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • All of them make you feel as if you were part of the family, they are amazing!!! Any doubt/question... they help you, they are kind, polite... All words that I've got for them are possitive. The location is great, it's only 10 min walking far away from the beach, there are supermarkets nearby and all kinds of shops in the High Street. The bus stop is also near (3 min walk). The transport heading to Edinburgh is frequent and there are many buses, there is also a bus night (N26). The room is big, luminous, tidy and very cozy, the same as the rest of the flat which is also clean and orderly. I highly recommend to stay in Sarah's house!!!!

    María2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah's place is incredibly lovely, she and her family make you feel straight at home. I stayed for about 1 month and enjoyed every moment of it. The h Room is super cosy and bright and the rest of the house gives you a warm feeling as well. Was welcome to use both living room and kitchen and everyone was just incredibly nice. And of course there's lovely Casper :) would always return and recommend

    Our place is close to Portobello Beach and only 15-20 min to city centre.You’ll love our house because of log fires in the winter and relaxing in the hot tub during the summer. Our place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, and families (with kids). We live in a large detached Victorian house in a very quiet street. We are offering a bright, clean room in our 5 bedroom home with a private bathroom (bath and shower).
    Our family home is quite large, spread over 3 floors which means you can have your own space or equally as easy join in as part of the family home.
    We are located in Portobello which is Edinburgh's seaside but the area has a real sense of it's own community. The house is just a few min walk to the beach and the promenade with plenty of shops on the way.
  • It is just as described, the house is beautiful, the family is so nice and we have loved the dog so much. If you are a dog lover it is worth to just book this for him! Suzanna made us feel like home and everything was smooth and easy. Would 100% recommend.

    Fanni2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Suzanna was a great host, very warm and welcoming. I also enjoyed meeting the children and not that I would have been bothered, but I was surprised how quiet the house was in the morning. The room was lovely, fully equipped with desk, separate armchair, chest of drawers, wardrobe and comfy bed. The bathroom felt enormous, with freestanding bath and separate shower. Everything was sparkling clean. The living room was cozy and full of Christmas cheer in a Victorian house with lots of original features. Great location and parking was no problem, even though the house was within walking distance of the high street and the beach. Highly recommended.

    Maren2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place, clean and comfortable. Very close to beach.

    Daniela2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful Victorian house with a lovely dog and owners ! Thanks for hosting us and making us feel so welcome and comfortable. We will recommend you to our friends !

    Djafar2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in Suzannas beautiful house near the beach. And it was really perfect. Everything is so cute and clean. The family is wonderful. And we got every help we needed. Totally perfect!! I will come back.

    Julia2019-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very short stay and we enjoyed it! Susanna was very welcoming host and replied to our messages quickly. Great mattress, the dog is very sociable :)

    Alexandra2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay in Suzannas calm and cozy rooms. She was very friendly and helpful. The house is close to beach, bus stops and shops. What do you want more?!

    Sophie2019-10-01T00:00:00Z

    Two minutes to the sandy beach and 4 mile promenade. Two minutes to Bus 26 and 15 minutes to Scott Monument in central Edinburgh, day / night. Restaurants, Portobello High St, shopping, heated baths, games arcades, cafes all 5 minutes away - a bakery downstairs and Aldi across the road. This cosy one bedroom home has a full kitchen, a spare double bed in the common area. The sun streams in during winter and summer. Parking is free, with bus access to most parts of Edinburgh. Please enjoy.
    Portobello has been voted the best neighbourhood in the UK and Ireland at the 2020 Urbanism Awards in London. We already knew that!! There is often fantastic events occurring in Portobello that only those in the "know" are aware. Here is the website with podcasts advertising the events and providing a history. https://www.buzzsprout.com/71622 For events or places to see in Edinburgh there are multitude of websites. But only one Portobello!! BOOKS:  There is a good selection of holiday reading books in the home.  Please enjoy.  If you are half way through a book and just can't stand to leave it, please take it with you.  We would appreciate it if you left behind another great read for future guests.  A living library. GOOD EATS:  At the bottom of our road, and beside the beach is a restaurant that we visit several times a week.  It is one of my favourites in the area: Dream and Season.  Good menu, not just your traditional tourist fare, and all fresh - rather than processed.  Delicious.  And for a treat?  Try their home brand cheescakes.  Good coffee too.  Other than that, the Thai Restaurant on Highstreet (ANNAs), and Red on Highstreet, are also good fresh meals.  However there are plenty of restaurants around.  And for excellent gelato - only one place in Portobello in my view, Monny's.  I go nearly everyday. EXERCISE:  After too much gelato I love going for long walks on the promenade, either east or west - although the former is my favourite.  Along the way you will pass the Baths - gym, heated, many forms of exercise.  The promenade itself is a great place for a bike ride; and if you continue east you will come across some lovely villages and a great lunch. SHOPPING:  Portobello is your old style vilage, with a baker, a fishmonger, butcher - plus a sprinkling of chain stores (Sainsbury, Aldi, Co-op).  There are many many Op Shops with really great buys and well worth a browse.  There is shopping in the city of all styles, and also a short bus ride away is Fort Kinnaird.  Take the Bus 49 from the closest bus stop to King St and get off at Fort.  Movie theatres, restaurants, M&S, most major brand shops are there.  Less busy than the city, and cheaper. FOOD:  The kitchen is well equipped.  Just round the corner from the flat entry is a paper shop with small grocery items, a baker for early morning fresh bread.  A short walk across the road is ALDI which I find always has a lot of reasonably priced fresh fruit and vege (after all that gelato).  On Beach St is the Co-op, a reasonable afternoon stroll away, that has great healthy prepared meals.  And further along again, is Sainsbury's.  Most of these are open long hours so you shouldn't go hungry. BIKES: Please don't bring your great big Harley inside (much as we love them), but bicycles are welcome. There are fantastic rides around Portobello, east west on the promenade through villages along the coast, or inland to Holyrood Castle and Holyrood Park / Arthur's Seat. RULES PLEASE READ: Bikes inside must be either in the basement/rear garden or in the apartment (up two flights). Bikes must not block any passageway / door that could cause danger for passers or during a fire. Other than that, please enjoy.
  • I stayed here for a couple months while job hunting. Both Anna and Dawn were absolutely amazing, kind, friendly, understanding, and the most helpful. On top of that the place was amazing and they worked with me every step of the way.

    Heather2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is really great! The biggest advantage is its location: 1 minute by foot to the beautiful beach and 15 minutes by bus to city centre of Edinburgh! We spent very nice weekend there :) we highly recommend this apartment!

    Marta2020-02-10T00:00:00Z

  • This is a great little apartment right in the heart of Portobello. It has all the amenities you would need and even includes a fantastic bath. Portobello is a lovely area, perfect for walks on the beach. Easy public transport to Edinburgh central and the communication with the host was wonderful. I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in close to Edinburgh.

    A cosy one-bedroom flat on the first floor of a traditional tenement building with views to the sea. This bright comfortable flat is 100 yards from Portobello beach and promenade but only 20 minutes by bus to the city's attractions and transport links.
    The flat consists of a living room with modern kitchen area, a bathroom with bath and shower over, and a double bedroom with ample wardrobe and drawer space.
    The flat is 2 minutes walk from the beach promenade at the end of the road. Portobello has a wide selection of quirky cafés and bars such as The Beach House and Espy and The Dalriada that has live music along the promenade. The High Street has a range of independent small shops selling anything from vintage clothes and furniture to cheeses, world-champion haggis and bicycles. There are also a number of good cafes and restaurants. There is a Turkish bathhouse and swimming pool on the promenade too.
  • Ian’s flat is just what you need for a short stay in Edinburgh - it was clean and had everything we needed, and Ian’s instructions for checking in were thorough. Portobello is a great part of Edinburgh to stay in if you don’t want to be somewhere incredibly busy - we loved that the beach was so close to the flat, and there are some great shops around as well. There are bus stops close by so you’re not waiting too long to get into the city.

    Wei Ming2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • An absolute gem! I rented Ian's lovely, cozy flat for my parents, who loved the closeness to the beach. The instructions for check-in were in great detail, and very useful. The flat was clean, had a helpful note from Ian and a map showing various things about the neighbourhood. It was stocked with some food and essentials and had some homey touches. Bus connections into the city are just as close as the beach, so the location really helped to balance out the holiday! Ian was a great host, and we had no problems with the place. Would recommend highly to people visiting Edinburgh!

    Ronja2019-07-13T00:00:00Z

    Laura2019-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • Ian was very helpful and quick to respond to any questions or concerns, and the flat was sparkling clean and inviting. The building is a bit old so the neighbours can be heard and we had to be careful not to make too much noise at night, but generally the area is very calm and quiet. Amenities included everything we needed and some helpful extras. Walking the beach in the evenings was nice. Overall I'm very happy with our stay!

    Diana2019-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • Comfy and cozy apartment right on the beach of Portobello. The apartment has everything you need, including a fully equipped kitchen and even a hairdryer. Ian was an amazing and responsive host who provided all the information needed (and more!). The place is located a short bus ride from the city centre but has great bus connections and has a few grocery stores nearby. Overall, a lovely location to explore Edinburgh and its surroundings!

    Hjørdis2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • This place ticks soo many boxes! The apartment is on the 3rd floor and there is no lift.... Something to bear in mind! Only negative out of the way.... Onto the positives.... Location is brilliant.... With car parking and bus stops for the regular bus service into the city located right outside the door! Super convenient for shops and eateries.... Safe area.... No drama. Apartment is really well decorated and clean! Heating was well needed to fight of the Scottish wind. Excellent kitchen utensils.... We cooked on one evening and everything apart from a rolling pin was on hand.... My partner improvised and used the cling film roll.. Shout out to my baby! ♥️ TV was great and was able to chill on the sofa with the blankets on offer. Netflix is available..... You only need to login. Dariusz... Great response time... Very thoughtful.... So many little surprises.... Beer, wine, croissants, jam, biscuits, slippers!... The list goes on... Tip my hat to you! Bottom line.... Return to Dariusz's place? HELL YES! Book it! You will not be disappointed.. Exceeded our expectations immensely!

    Stephen2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • House with 2 spacious bedrooms, comfortable beds, electric heaters in each cabin, comfortable lounge and comfortable sofa. Kitchen with washing machine and small appliances such as essential coffee maker and toaster. We leave a pack of sweets, bottles of water, bottle of wine, jams, coffee and even some slippers to use and throw to walk around the house so as not to dirty the carpeting. Bus stop in front of the portal, about 20 mts to the center and 1.80 pounds for adults and 0.90 children- DO NOT USE CAR to go to the center, parking is very expensive. There is an ALDI next door. There are also pubs and establishments to order food to take away. The promenade of Portobello is opposite, it is nice to take a walk in good weather or for the runners.

    Antonio2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing break in Edinburgh, made even better by having Dariusz's place as our base! Location was perfect for us, a stones throw away from the beach, everything you need very close by and a quick drive into the city. The flat is super clean, cosy and well thought out. All the added little extras for us and our little girl were much appreciated! Dariusz is a super host, thank you so much for having us.

    Portobello, or ‘Porty' as it's known locally, is Edinburgh's beach community, situated about 3 miles East of the heart of the city. Porty Beach is a truly great looking, wide, sandy stretch, with a long, flat promenade that runs the entire length – Perfect for cycling, skateboarding, roller blading or just an enjoyable stroll. Along the prom you'll also find the Victorian-era public baths which house one of only three Turkish Baths in the country. Portobello High Street has some interesting buildings, along with several exceptional quality food producers, shops and cafes. The promenade and high street have recently started to come alive with revamped cafes and bars selling divine food throughout the day and night. Several clubs and activity groups have taken root in the area, Portobello Sailing and Kayaking club being just one of a growing number. Three of my favourite food and drink spots in Portobello are below. The Palm Tree - garden pub with outdoor eating area. Foresters Guild - Pub/serves food. Adorable outdoor beach huts for seating areas. Skylark - Bistro/bar. Serves some great home made food!
  • Nice space and great for exploring Portobello with the apartment being a short walk from the beachfront. Peri's communications and instructions were all clear and easy to follow.

    Excellently situated my place offers a cosy and tranquil bedroom with skylights to view the stars, birds or one of the inquisitive cats! It's the perfect space for you to relax after wandering through Edinburgh's historic centre, only a short bus ride away. With only two minutes walk to the Beach, you can instantly access the beautiful sea front and golden sands of Portobello to discover a wealth of independent shops, cafes, restaurants, bars, beer gardens and Edinburgh’s only Turkish Baths.
    The bedroom has an extremely comfortable, King size bed as advertised. There is also a super comfortable, single Sofa Bed in the same room for an additional, third guest or for availability as a 'Twin Room'. To note: If you would like to request the use of both the double and single beds, please make your reservation for three guests. The room is cosy and very relaxing. There are drawers & a hanging rail for storage, table-top mirror, bedside table and a plush carpet for warm toes. Feel free to have a nosy through the books and cartoons! Indoors we are a shoe-free zone and appreciate your respect for this. The bathroom is spacious and highlights a large tub or separate shower with a refreshing view to the leafy garden. A former Coach House, my home is 'cottage -sized and very comfortable.
    Portobello is a thriving, friendly, neighbourhood which was once a separate town to Edinburgh. It retains that independent feel today, with a colourful high street where you'll find a multitude of interesting places to potter, browse or take refreshments. The beach and promenade are great places to relax, with a good choice of seaside cafes and pubs plus our Victoriam Swim Centre with views overlooking the sea. The house is situated opposite a formal park with a seaside community garden and the promenade less than a minute's walk away.
  • The location is excellent, as there are many great and affordable food choices nearby. There are also many charity shops around the area which are worth checking out. Barbara was a very welcoming and friendly host, and the place is very budget friendly. We loved the homeliness of the place and the room!

  • We had a great time at Barbara’s place! It’s a lovely and cozy house with 4 cats. The location is perfect, 1 minute’s walk to the beach. It’s fantastic to walk along the sea in the morning. Barbara is incredible. She’s so nice. We were lucky to chose her house and spend an unforgettable new year eve in Edinburgh and her place. Couldn’t have been better. Her house is very clean and comfortable. More importantly, it feels like home. I like it. The living room is like a garden with all kinds of plants, artistic and stylish decorations. She provided all the information we needed. Very tourist-friendly lol. Thank you very much Barbara. Will definitely stay at your house if we go to Edinburgh next time. Thanks for everything. Me, Marcus and Morning hope you all the best! Happy new year. xx

  • My partner and I travelled from our home (Barcelona) so I could show her around where I was brought up! Barbara made us feel so welcomed. We didn’t spend so much time in the household itself but herself and her cats were a joy! Our flight home was very early in the morning and returning from a long day out (arriving back around 11.30pm) we were welcomed with freshly baked scones and fruit which we took with us for breakfast (waking up at 4am) Couldn’t recommend more. Thanks Barbara

    Jonny2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderfully warm and welcoming experience in a Scottish home. Our host, Barbara, taught us much about the culture and helped us navigate Edinburgh well. Her cats are beautiful and loving to all. Highly recommend this Airbnb.

    Bright Sunny 2 double bed apt on DIRECT bus to city centre. Located in Portobello, Edinburgh's seaside town this flat is sunny relaxing a great location. The beach is a 2 mins walk away.

There are 2 bedrooms both with double beds. The flat is a top floor flat in a traditional Edinburgh tenement. There is no lift and it is 4 floors up (57 Steps) . The stairs are communal and are traditional tenement shared stairs .
    This sunny 2 double bedroom, top floor flat with seaviews to one side, and Arthurs seat to the other is fully furnished and on the direct NIGHT BUS to Edinburgh city centre. The flat is on Portobello High street with busses directly outside the flat taking you to every part of the city within 10-20 minutes, so no matter what venue you're performing in, working in or visiting during the festival you'll be within easy access. Portobello is Edinburgh's seaside town with a beach 2 minutes from the flat (Sean Connery was a lifeguard here when he was a teen!). So after a busy day of busking, performing, rigging, or squishing into non-airconditioned venues, Porty beach is the perfect way to unwind. A wee holiday away from the hustle & bustle of the festival.

  • Great space, in great location. Recommend

    Matthew2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is right near the beach, and it’s really convenient to go to the city center by bus. It’s only a ~5 min walk to a local supermarket, which is great since we mostly cooked in the apartment.

    A double bedroom with your own private en -suite facilities (toilet and walk-in shower). Guests are provided with a choice of the following for their breakfast. 1. A selection of popular cereals. (cool or hot milk is available ) 2. Home made bread, freshly baked for each guest to enjoy at breakfast. Together with the options of jam, honey and peanut butter. (A toaster is also available). 3. A selection of fresh fruit. 4 . There is also plenty tea and coffee on hand for guests to enjoy.
    The spacious double bedroom leads onto your own private en-suite toilet and shower facilities. Within the bedroom there is also a large built-in wardrobe with ample hangers for your clothes. Together with a set of drawers and bedside cabinets. There is also a bedside lamp for guests who want to have a wee read before going off to sleep. My home can be considered a house of two halves. One half where I sleep and have my own toilet and shower facilities. The other half is where guests can feel at home with their own bedroom and en-suite toilet. Between the two sleeping areas is the communal lounge. This then ensures that the guests can feel they have their own private part of the house to themselves. The kitchen area and lounge are shared, but from my experience I find that the guests utilise the kitchen quite freely with minimum distraction from me. The guest's bedroom also has two doors separating it from the kitchen, which ensures that there is maximum noise reduction from the kitchen if the guest should wish to have some quiet time. (e.g. a long lie in bed or early to bed).
    The house is a 5 minute walk down to Portobello beach (Edinburgh’s seaside resort). Which has 2 miles of golden sand to enable you walk and enjoy the sea air. There are several well recommended restaurants and also bars with live music. A beautiful seaside community, and only a 20 minute bus ride from the centre of Edinburgh.
  • It’s pleasant to have a small walk along the beach of Portobello every day. Joe’s place gives us a shelter to avoid the crowds during festival season. Joe is a guy with sense of humor and shares his knowledge of everything! He gives good advice of exploring Edinburgh.

    Hsinyi2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Joe's. It was spotless and perfect for our needs. The directions were excellent and all the tips Joe gave us were great. He made fresh bread for us, a choice of cereal and fruit, we helped ourselves. While we were I 20/25 minute bus ride from the city, the buses were very regular and it meant we could go for a stroll on the beach every morning. Would definitely recommend Joe's place if your travelling to Edinburgh. Kindest regards Eileen and Kieran.

    Eileen2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Joe was a fantastic host. His place is super comfy, in a great location just a few minutes walk to the promenade with a great bus service close by too. Would recommend his place to anyone looking for a peaceful place to rest up after a busy day.

    Eliza2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Top class hospitality in a top location. Joe made sure we were welcome, advised us on local eateries and made quality bread for our breakfast! The place was sparkling and just round the corner from the beach as promised. Will definitely be going back when in the area again

    Melissa2019-07-28T00:00:00Z

    Sebastian Michael2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Joe was easy going and very flexible on arrival time with our many hours late due to train re-routing. Nice fresh baked bread for us, clean and comfortable room and easy access to train. Definitely recommend to stay here!!

    Joe2019-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • Traveling to Edinburgh in July 2019, we found Joe's place to be the perfect choice to stay. Joe is super-helpful with everything, provided us with his freshly homebaked wholewheat-bread and everything else needed for a good breakfast. And he's a real lovely, funny guy, too. The rooms are impeccably clean with a lot of storage-space, the shared kitchen is spacious and beautiful. Portobello comes with a lovely beach, which is a 5 Min. walk from the house. It's great to return to this little sanctuary after a day in the city, and we highly recommend Joe's place, if you look for a place to stay in / near Edinburgh!

    Sebastian Michael2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • I had an amazing time at Joes place. It‘s well located in Portobello (easy to catch a bus to the city) and the bedroom and private bathroom are beautyfull. Joe was a big help to get around and great person to talk to. I absolutely enjoyed the stay!

    Comfy and cosy one bed flat in Portobello, Edinburgh. Five minutes’ walk from Portobello beach. Perfect for any occasion.

Complimentary tea, coffee, biscuits and other basic provisions are provided as well as free Wi-Fi. Free on-street parking is also included.

Perfect for a city break or simply as a stopping off place. Ideal for couples, solo and business travellers as well as families.. so anyone really!
  • A very lovely and cosy flat. I was only there for one night but it provided everything that I needed for that time. A very lovely place to stay.

    Hanna2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Kirsty's flat was in an ideal location for the 4 of us; as having driven 300 miles up to Edinburgh, having free, secure parking outside our front door with 2 kids and everything we packed (inc. the kitchen sink) in the boot.. this ticked one major box for me. Portobello may be on the outskirts of Edinburgh city centre but it's only a short drive / bus ride so we found being based there convenient. Step out of the door and we had shops, the beach front, restaurants and play facilities only a few minutes waddle away from the flat.... a bonus for the kids. We also found we had over-packed because Kirsty was kind enough to provide the flat with a lot of things we thought we needed to bring along. We found fresh fruit, breakfast cereals, cereal bars, toilet paper, kitchen roll, lots of spare towels, pillows & duvets.... nice touches. Kirsty also responded to any queries quickly and was happy to provide suggestions.... so great with her comms and hospitality. Great host, great flat, would highly recommend for a family break. Kind regards, Brian

    Brian2020-01-02T00:00:00Z

  • Kirsty's place is really lovely. The bed is very comfortable, and the space is great. It's conveniently located on a quiet road just off the high street and 5mins from the beach. Communication was excellent too. We had a brilliant stay and would stay again in a heartbeat. Thanks again!

    Large double room with private bathroom in Georgian house. There is a sofa bed for a third person if required. We are opposite a lovely park and the long, sandy beach is at the end of the street. Walled garden for chilling out. Edinburgh city centre is 20 mins by bus. Free parking on our street. No extra charges
    Our house is bright and comfortable. We hope guests will relax here after busy days seeing all Edinburgh has to offer.
    Portobello is a vibrant Edinburgh neighbourhood with specialist shops, restaurants, coffee shops and bars. The long, sandy beach is glorious! There are several parks.
  • This is a true gem. The hospitality shown by Sandra and her husband is next to none. We were welcomed into their home and even treated to a thoughtful and delicious breakfast each morning. The bedroom is large and spacious. The private bathroom is new and clean (great shower, too!). We went during the winter and did not spend time in the patio area but viewing it from the kitchen it looked like a beautiful place to relax. The location is a couple miles from the city royal mile making this location quiet and peaceful. Nonetheless, two buses (26 and 124 I believe) stop right outside and will take you into Edinburgh with ease (approximately 20-25 minutes). Sandra is located in Portobello, which is a lovely seaside area with shops, restaurants, and bars that are worth checking out if you are looking for a nice break from the touristy downtown Edinburgh. The beach is approximately one block away and also worth visiting, especially if it is a sunny day. Overall, I would absolutely stay here again.

  • This is a lovely, centuries-old, modernized home one block from the ocean. The room was very comfortable with shuttered windows, tall ceilings and good wifi connection. The host was very thoughtful leaving our beds ready for our late arrival and thoughtful touches to make our stay truly enjoyable. Several restaurants in this location featured fresh local produce and food. You can enjoy bathing in the ocean most days including November when I was there.

  • SURELY RECOMMEND THIS ACCOMMODATION. I HOPE TO RETURN TO STAY AT SANDRA'S HOUSE, BECAUSE WE WERE WELCOMED BY THE COUPLE, I AND MY FAMILY FELT AT HOME. EVERYTHING WAS WONDERFUL AND PERFECT, ALSO THE HOME IS NEAR THE BEACH AND HAS EASY ACCESS TO THE CITY CENTER AND TOURIST POINTS. KNOWING EDIMBURG AND GLASGOW IS WORTH IT.

The house was sparkling clean and very cozy to come and chill in after spending time at the beautiful beach just next to the house. Sandra was very kind and helpful to us.A lovely stay, and I would definitely book it again...!!

    Traditional Edinburgh tenement with a modern twist. Within walking distance of Portobello beach and well connected to major city attractions.
    Located within walking distance of Edinburgh's shore, this traditional 1st floor tenement building has excellent transport links to all of Edinburgh's major attractions. The apartment contains a large double bedroom with ceiling-high windows, original lighting by a local designer, large wardrobe and dresser. A separate toilet and shower room are located in the hallway. The bright kitchen / living room area sits four people. For those thinking of bringing a guest to sleep on the sofa - I wouldn't really recommend it! It's much better for sitting on that sleeping on. Kitchen contains microwave, electric cooker, dishwasher, washing machine, kettle and toaster. A HD TV/DVD player is also provided in the living room. From the apartment, you can easily take a bus into the city centre, towards Edinburgh Zoo, Murrayfield, Rosslyn Chapel, Ocean Terminal, Leith, Prestonpans, Musselburgh, Arthur's Seat, Duddingston Village, the Pentland Hills, Dalkeith and many other locations of interest! Locally, you can find wonderful cafés and bars serving locally sourced and artisanal food such as The Beach House on the promenade. The high street is full of charming small businesses including the vintage store Martha's Attic, and the Cove, which sells gifts, homeware and artworks by local creatives. Along the beach you will also find a restored Victorian bath house with two pools, gym and turkish bath.
  • Stylish flat for couples looking to explore Portobello

  • Wonderful little flat, perfectly located.

    Mati2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed for a week on Calum’s flat and it was great. The flat is small but perfectly organised for a comfortable stay. Nicely decorated the bedroom is spacious, bright, well ventilated and tastefully decorated. The kitchen and sitting room are practical and comfortable, a bit of a squeeze for two people to eat as there is only one stool in the kitchen but with such central location and wonderful places to go you won’t probably need to eat in! The area is quiet and secluded, central and close to all amenities. Will definitely recommend for a couple or single stay.

    Spacious light double room in family house on quiet street 5 mins from Portobello beach. Enjoy the quirky garden (fresh fruit & herbs in season), play the piano and explore creative Portobello community. Frequent buses to Edinburgh city centre.
    The Room Spacious and light double bedroom with king size bed - can easily accommodate an extra child guest if required (travel cot or futon mattress provided). The house is a beautiful 4-bedroom family home which was built in the 1840s and has many original features including wooden shutters. Towels, free WiFi and breakfast provided. Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements. No pets please - we have a cat.
    We're 2 minutes from Portobello High Street, which has a good selection of interesting shops, pubs and cafes. A few minutes more takes you to the Promenade and Portobello beach where you can walk, play and even take a dip if you dare to brave the North Sea chill. If you prefer a warmer immersion, try Portobello Swimming Baths and Turkish Baths just along the beach. Also at the beach is the Sailing and Kayaking club (also skiff rowing). If you happen to be here on November 5 or December 31 be sure to look out for bonfires, fireworks and beach parties. There are several interesting pubs and cafes right on the sea front - the Dalriada frequently has live music, and you can get a good meal at the Espy. During the day, the Beach House Cafe has good coffee and cake. Once a month the local organic market run by our local Transition Town group takes place in Brighton Park, just a few minutes from the house. There are frequent community events including ceilidhs, film nights, etc.
  • Nice atmosphere, we felt really comfortable, Chris and Jane are kind and welcoming. We were sorry to know little English, we would have gladly chatted!

    Sara2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • We sincerely wanted to thank you because you are exceptional hosts. Your house is so welcoming that you feel at home. You have been attentive, attentive and beinveillant throughout this stay. We could not hope better. You have far exceeded all our expectations. We advise anyone wanting to visit Edimburgh to come and live at Jane & Chris, because they are very well located (5min walk from the sea and 30sec from the bus stop leading directly to the city center), then you will sleep in a very charming and relaxing environment (very calm place). And last but not least, Jane & Chris are just people to meet. Thanks again. Dorothée & Marion

    Marion Dorothée2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • I came to the beautiful Edinburgh and lived in this warm home for a wonderful three dhappijane and Chris is a very loving couple. Gentle and loving life, taking care of a beautiful garden, planting a variety of fruits and vegetables. What surprised me the most is that the landlord is also a vegetarian like me. Every day, the landlord sincerely greets us how we slept. They also give us some very pertinent suggestions with great patience and meticulousness. If you come to Edinburgh, if you are reading this message, if you want a warm and private holiday, then do the right thing, just like me. We're very honored to meet Jane and Chris in Edinburgh .wish you happiness forever.

    2019-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • My mom and I had a wonderful stay at Chris and Jane's home in Portobello. It was conveniently located for our short exploration of Edinburgh and they were very friendly with local tips and lots of conversation over breakfast.

    Claire2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Very friendly and helpful. Lovely home near the beach. Easy to get a bus into the city centre. We’d stay again.

    Connor2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Very friendly and helpful hosts. Nice hause. Very clean with good break fast.

    Paweł2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Chris and Jane were absolutely wonderful hosts. They went above and beyond to accommodate us in terms of check-in and check-out times and in general. On leaving I actually forgot a couple of items in the wardrobe and Jane was kind enough to arrange a time that I could pick up the items the following week. With Chris and Jane you can expect to stay in a warm and comfortable home, surrounded by plants and veggies and located very close to Portobello beach, which is magical. Edinburgh is a truly inspirational place and Chris and Jane's home was a great hub to see it from. There is a bus service around the corner that takes you into the town centre and a grocery shop around the corner too. The breakfast provided is plentiful and healthy and the room is spacious. I also really loved what was in the room's bookshelves. It's a thoughtful selection of books that will help you understand Scotland better through the lens of a couple of difference genres. I can't recommend the place enough. Enjoy!

    Emanuela2019-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • As other guests have described,Chris and Jane are friendly and welcoming hosts. Their house is a characterful period property and although situated off a main road is quiet and peaceful. The bedroom is comfortable and there is access to a large living room and the garden. Sharing a bathroom with the hosts was not a problem. Chris and Jane provide breakfast. Highly recommended.

    The flat has two spacious double bedrooms, v large livingroom with dining table and kitchen. It overlooks the scenic and very popular Portobello beach located on outskirts of Edinburgh. It has local shops and v good pub/restaurants with buses running regularly to Edinburgh and trains to east coast
    Overlooks a beautiful beach and next to yacht club with a top bistro below. You have your own parking space. There are a number of nice bars and restaurants. Bus stop is a two minute walk and regular buses into the city centre.
    It's family orientated, friendly, quiet, with nice pubs, restaurants and music
  • Kevins's place is simply wonderful. The rooms are very spacious and bright and the expansive view of the beach is so welcoming. There are many excellent cafes and restaurants just steps away such as the Beach Cafe, Miros, The Espy, The Boathouse and Dal Raida. The Scot Mid grocery down the block is excellent for all your daily grocery needs. Numerous parks are nearby with some a wee bit further making for a variety of great daily walks on the promenade or Bath street . It's fun to watch the swimmers who swim year-round even on the coldest winter days. The lift makes it easy to get all of your luggage into the flat in a jiffy. Trips into Oldtown are fast and easy via bus or Uber. It's no wonder that Portabello was voted as the best town in the UK. Kevin's flat is located at the center of it all enabling you enjoy all that "Porty" has to offer. We will be back for sure. Bob R. Maryland USA

    Robert2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay at Kevin’s place. Wonderful views, restaurants, bars, shops very close. Good parking and also good public transportation to the center of Edinburgh. Highly recommended.

    Tamas2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Kevin's was just what the doctor ordered. Right on the beach and sea views from every room. Great. We stayed in October so it was relatively quiet but in summer there would obviously be a lot more going on around and on the beach. So bear that in mind as all the rooms face that way and the many sounds of passing folk would be heard. The appartament was well furnished and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. The bonus for us was the lift as it was on the first floor. Having mobility issues it was so handy to have a couple of eating places right on the doorstep. It was perfect for us in every way. Can't wait to go again!

    Krystyna2019-10-21T00:00:00Z

  • This is an amazing beach-front apartment in Edinburgh with gorgeous ocean views from every room. There is a huge projection TV in the living room and a full kitchen. It is right on the promenade so food and surf are literally right outside your door when you walk out. Public transport to downtown is via bus which you can catch 2 blocks away on the high street. We spent 5 nights here with an adult family of 4 and had a great time. We would return for sure. Kevin was very responsive and helpful throughout our trip. Highly recommended!

    Alfia2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Kevin’s place is a spacious, clean flat right on the beach. All necessary amenities were provided. There’s a nice seaside cafe below, and other bars and restaurants nearby. The nearest bus is a 5 minute walk and the flat has a parking spot as well. I would definitely stay here again.

    My place is very close to Portobello Beach (150 yds) where you can find various cafes and bars all of which do excellent breakfast, lunch and dinner with exceptional sea views. You’ll feel right at home in my place with its beautiful light, a comfy double bed, lovely furnishings and the high ceilings. And it's only 20 mins by bus into the centre of Edinburgh, so ideal for those visiting for the festival in August.
    Also, I will provide tea, coffee and a continental breakfast plus you have full use of the kitchen to prepare snacks and meals.
    Portobello is a great part of the city to base yourself. Described by the travel guides as 'utterly charming'. It has all the facilities you need for a relaxing stay, with easy access into the city (15/20 mins)
  • Great place, superb location. Friendly hosts

    David2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Katie's flat is so cosy and comfortable and only a stone's throw from the beach; the bedroom itself is spacious and quiet, as it looks onto a small garden area; the bed is also very comfortable, which is a big plus point. Katie herself is a lovely host, very welcoming and relaxed, so if you want a perfect bolthole away from the hubbub of the city this is the place for you!

    Mary2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • Katie was a lovely host, she answered every of ours questions. The room was spacious and the bed was so comfy. We had a great time and Katie's cat is so adorable. If you ever need to stay in Edinburgh Katie is the perfect host!

  • We really enjoy Katie’s flat. I like the way her house is decorated, and it's very clean. Her house is near the sea ,both city center and North Berwick are easy to get to. Katie has a very lovely cat , I believe we have become friends after spending three days together. I'd stay here again next time I come here.

    A beautiful one-bedroom flat on the top floor of a traditional tenement building with far-reaching views across the sea to North Berwick. This bright comfortable flat is 100 yards from Portobello beach and promenade but only 25 minutes by bus to the city's attractions and transport links.
    The flat consists of a living room with modern kitchen area, a bathroom with shower , and a double bedroom with ample wardrobe and drawer space.
    The flat is 2 minutes walk from the beach promenade at the end of the road. Portobello has a wide selection of quirky cafés and bars such as The Beach House and Espy and The Dalriada that has live music along the promenade. The High Street has a range of independent small shops selling anything from vintage clothes and furniture to cheeses, world-champion haggis and bicycles. There are also a number of good cafes and restaurants. There is a Turkish bathhouse and swimming pool on the promenade too.
  • Ian's appartment is absolutely lovely! Looks honestly much better than the pictures and is perfectly equipped. 2 min walk from the beach and close to all kinds of shops and an amazing small bakery almost next door. Bus 26 goes to the city every few minutes as well. We had a great time and would love to stay there again if we come back to Edinburgh.

    Sarah2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • The location is fantastic. Being able to go down to the waterfront at the beginning or end of the day was very refreshing. Bring your bathing suit and at least walk in the water. You will likely see some hardy people go swimming no matter what the temperature! Make sure to visit one of the many thrift stores nearby. You might consider packing light and just buying some warm clothes there. You can be generous and buy some inexpensive clothes at a thrift store and then donate them back when you leave. I found several shirts and a packable winter jacket and other little things. There were excellent deals on high quality clothing but I just had no space. There’s an Aldi store maybe a mile down the road that has some great genuine Scottish food. I got some brownies “baked in the banks of Loch Ness” and they were as good as any my mother ever made ! There are lots of cheap ready made sandwiches and prepared dishes if you’re like me and just wanted to travel around and spend little time getting food at the end of the day. For international stamps when the local post office is closed got to Scotmid at 6 Bath street. Turn right outside the apartment and walk to Greggs and the next right is Bath St. Scotmid is sort of hidden on the left side of Bath St. just after the public washrooms. They also might have some items that Aldi doesn’t have but the food’s more expensive. The people in Portobello and Scotland in general are very friendly. Oh, the tour in Edinburgh by the professional comedian Daniel was excellent. That guy should have his own TV show, he’s got the personality people would love. Last but not least, the scenery was unbelievable. I thought we had mountains in Cape Breton, N.S. but they pale in comparison to Scotland. The Rabbies tour to Loch Ness and the highlands was great. I could say so much more but anyway, Ian’s place is great and highly recommended. Kelly

It has everything you could want for a comfortable stay, including an extremely comfortable bed and well-equipped kitchen area. Central Edinburgh easy to reach by frequent bus service and Portobello is a great place by the sea. Try croissants from the Twelve Trees bakery just a few yards from the flat and cakes and coffee at Miro's on the promenade.

    Close to the sea, frequent bus service to centre of Edinburgh which is approximately 20 minutes away. Small house, near the promenade with an attractive private courtyard. Offering a comfortable double bed and a light seasonally appropriate breakfast. I prefer female single guests or couples. I enjoy cooking, gardening, travel and hosting guests.
    A warm, comfortable double bedroom with adjoining shower and bath. Plenty of space for clothes and personal belongings.
    Portobello is a popular seaside resort with access to a range of shops, restaurants and cafes. There is a wide, sandy beach and promenade with views to Fife. There are amusement arcades and a liesure centre with a swimming pool, gym and Turkish bath close by.
  • Nice shared room in a cosy home in a great location. Gillian is a great host.

    Erik2020-01-02T00:00:00Z

    Lea2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely home near the sea. Comfortably furnished private room and bathroom. Easy bus ride into town. I was there to attend the Fringe festival and so did not spend much of my waking hours in the home but I enjoyed morning chats with my host while eating the thoughtfully prepared breakfasts, inclusive homemade jam, home made granola, fruits and even upon. my request a smoothie. Very quiet area, clean home and prompt communication before and after my stay.

    Tim2019-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Gillian is a wonderful and gracious hostess with plenty of local tips and a genuine heart to serve her guests. Her home is in a beautiful quaint beach town on a quiet street but still just a quick walk to pubs and dining. We loved our three days in her place and recommend Gillian’s home for a restful and comfortable stay

    Judy2019-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • Gilian always answered our questions quickly. How had a warm reception. She is a gracious hostess. Although we could not finish the room had never felt the feeling that something was missing. It is very clean, simple and functional. Morning meal very good. If you do not have too high demands I can only recommend it.
