We are Barry (to the left in the photo) and Joe Church-Woods and we live in a beautiful, three-bedroom flat, which we rent from friends of friends, right in the heart of stunning Edinburgh.
Our landlords told us when we moved in (January 2012) that they are happy for us to let out the lovely spare rooms, so we thought this might be a fun way to make some pocket money.
So far it's been a great experience, with lots of lovely guests coming to stay! Airbnb works really well for us as everything is taken care of and we don't have to worry about taking payments directly from guests or anything like that.
Barry was born and grew up in Central Scotland, and has spent most of his adult life in Edinburgh and surrounding areas. Joe is originally from Sweden (and fluent in Swedish), but arrived in the Scottish capital in 2000 after five years in London and has never looked back!
We are very happy to help guests with recommendations of things to see and do while in Edinburgh, so don't hesitate to ask!
We have also recently set up a blog called 'Edinburgh Guesthouse', on which we write about our favourite restaurants, pubs, bars and things to do in Edinburgh. You can find it on Blogger: (website hidden)
