Hosts are keen to meet new people from all over the world and share the house. I am Scottish and my wife is Japanese, we are both laid back and quite well traveled. We love sharing what we know re Edinburgh and Scotland- e.g best places to go, eat etc and to hear about where your from too!
We both work running our own Japanese food business. Kaori does a very successful restaurant and I do Street Food - a stall every week at the Stockbridge Sunday market and various events and festivals.
Airbnb is a bit like a hobby for us and we enjoy it. We like our guests to feel as at home as possible almost like a flat share type of relationship. Your welcome to use the kitchen, and facilities of course as long as you respect the others in the house and tidy up after yourself.
We dont have a TV, but do have the fastest bestest residential internet available in the UK at present (BT Infinity 78M Unlimited). We tend to watch our TV streaming and from all round the globe.
Breakfast is self service. Short stay guests I will lay the table for you etc, but longer stay is more relaxed. We have tea, coffee, herbal tea's, cereals, muesli, porridge, raisins, oatcakes, butter, milk, hemp or soya milk you can help yourself to.
Lastly we also have a cat called Chara - its really us living in her house - but she is very friendly and no trouble!
