Catriona is a lovely person who does everything to make sure you are feeling at home. Before you arrive at an accommodation you have certain expectations and I was not disappointed when I walked in, It was like in the pictures. It is as I would say a typical British apartment with fluffy carpet lots of nice little pieces of decoration, I felt at home right away. The two cats Sophie and Cheeko are great and love to accompany you while you are having your cup of tea or watch a movie.
Everything you need is just around the corner, bus stops to different directions (1 min walk) supermarket (5 min walk), shopping centre (10 min walk), the beach (15 min walk), Holyrood Park (5 min walk) and so on.
I definitely recommend this accommodation to everyone
Catriona hat mir noch am Tag meiner Reise mindestens 5 Mal die Wegbeschreibung zu ihrem Flat gemailt, weil meine Mailbox nicht richtig funktionierte. Ich bekam die Beschreibung noch rechtzeitig und mit deren Hilfe (sehr detailliert beschrieben, es hat alles auf Anhieb geklappt) hab ich den Weg zu Catrionas Flat im Regen und im Dunkeln sehr gut finden können. Sie war zu Hause, als ich ankam und hat mich sehr freundlich und offen begrüßt. Sie hat mir gleich alles gezeigt, erklärt und den Schlüssel ausgehändigt. Ich konnte sie einfach alles fragen, sie wusste sehr gut Bescheid. Über die Geschäfte in Ihrer Nachbarschaft, über die Buslinien, sie kannte alle Straßen, gab prima Empfehlungen, hat mir mit Geduld alles erklärt und gezeigt. Mein himmelblaues Paradies, so hab ich ihr Gästezimmer genannt, war bequem, praktisch und total gemütlich. Ihre Katzen und sie haben mich so vertrauensvoll aufgenommen - ich hab mich soooo wohl gefühlt bei und mit ihnen, dass ich gerne noch wochenlang geblieben wäre. Ein großartiges Airbnb-Ersterlebnis, danke Dir, Cat!
Catriona is a wonderful host! She is incredibly welcoming, helpful and friendly. She was really great at answering all my transportation questions and making sure that I felt at home. I would definitely recommend her flat for those traveling to Edinburgh!
My host was extremely welcoming and enthusiastic. The listing was just as described, with the apartment being really nice and charming. Catriona was very knowledgeable about the city and gave me everything from tour guides, maps, tourist maps and transportation information. She was very helpful and a pleasure to be around.
The kitchen had everything I needed, he room even had an extra portable heater and extra blankets. She has 2 beautiful well behaved cats, and I had no issues.
I would definitely stay with her when I visit Edinburgh
Catriona was exceptionally welcoming from my arrival through to my rushed departure at the end of my stay.
Catriona's place is exceptionally clean, and in my opinion very honest and charming. She has two friendly cats (a huge boon I hadn't noticed when I booked). I didn't make use of the breakfast facilities while I was there but was notified that cereal, toast etc was available if I wanted it. Tea and coffee was also provided ( a really nice touch).
The area is very well located, 10 minutes bus ride from the centre and very easy to locate. There are lots of corner shops in the vicinity so you're able to nip out and get a few basics if you need to. Catriona also took the time to explain the bus service and the best ways to get around Edinburgh.
I'd very highly recommend staying with Catriona and will certainly do so without hesitation next time I'm in Edinburgh. This is my second airbnb experience, and I'm really pleased that I've managed to meet yet another fantastic host.
I feel very grateful for having had the chance to stay at Catriona's place. She's a wonderful host, friendly, welcoming and so helpful. I've been staying here for a month while looking for a flat in Edinburgh as I came here to undertake PhD studies, and I've immediately felt welcomed and at ease. Something which is well appreciated when you come from abroad. The room is lovely, comfortable and silent, and I could freely enjoy the entire flat to study or watch TV - not mentioning her two adorable cats that I'm gonna miss terribly. (!) The place is well located, 10 min. away from Portobello-beach, and 10-15 min. away from the centre, with a great selection of buses nearby. On the top of that, Holyrood park & Arthur's seat are reachable by feet.
Needless to say that it's a great value for what you get. Therefore I can only recommend this place to anyone who's looking for a lovely stay in Edinburgh, whether for a few days or for a longer term.
Staying at Catriona's was very pleasant, and she was a friendly and helpful host. It made our move to Edinburgh much easier and more relaxed. The cats were wonderful as well, and we will miss having them around. Catriona's home is clean, comfortable, and in a great location - getting to city centre only take a few minutes by bus. The amazing Holyrood Park is within walking distance as well. I would certainly recommend her if you need a place to stay in Edinburgh.
Catrionas place was a great place to stay! It was a little out of the centre of Edinburgh although an easy 20 minute walk or there is a bus stop just down the road. There are also small takeaway places and corner stores near by if needed. The room was big enough for 2 with luggage and the bed was comfy! Catriona supplied us with towels and breakfast foods each morning also! Overall very happy with our stay and how welcome Catriona made us feel :)
I was lucky to choose Catriona's place for my 2 nights stay in Edinburgh before moving north. She was the perfect host, flexible to accommodate both my checking in and out time (thank you!), my blue room was very clean and quiet, facing green backyards, very comfortable bed, enough room for my stuff. The flat is perfectly located, just walking distance to Holyroodhouse and hills with Arthur's seat, the Scottish Parliament and also the Royal Mile. Delicious baked potato shop next block over.
This was my first experience of Airbnb and it couldn´t have been better. Catriona was very helpful and friendly telling how to use the public transportation and how to get to the sights. Catriona´s home is very easy to reach and there are great and fast bus connections to the city center. My room was comfortable and quiet and the two lovely cats were so sweet. I would definitely come back again.
Although we didn't see much of Cat, because she was only here briefly, she seemed a very nice, warm, friendly lady.
