Sandra and Scott were wonderful hosts, and definitely my favourite amongst my many airbnb stays. They welcomed us with beer and wine, had breakfast for us in the morning, and were very helpful and inviting overall. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends and family.
Sandra and Scott are the most charming and caring hosts you can find a perfect holiday home with.
They are that kind of I-can-read-your-wish-or-what-you-need-in-your-eyes-person and they demonstrade an overwhelming dedication.
I went with a friend of mine and we had a wonderful and cozy stay!
Sandra and Scott live almost inside the Botanic Garden, it is quiet but not outside, just a 15 min walk to the city and 10 min walk to Stockbridge, a pretty bar and restaurant area. Sandra even made a lovely draft of a map herself, to point out the best pubs, restaurants and bars and walks. Bewitching! :)
On our arrival Scott came to pick us up by car from the Coach-Station and every morning a hearty (meaning: lovely) breakfast expected us with coffee, tea, juice, yoghurt, bread, toast, butter, jam, cornflakes, cereals, fruit and sweet treets etc.
Two cats are sharing their home with them and you, if you decide staying with them. But they are a little shy and stay most of their time on their own. Even though sometimes they are curious and might have a look at the hallway at you in the morning.
The bedroom was very nice, the beds comfy and all is absolutly super clean. I totally recommend staying with Sandra and Scott!
Staying at Sandra & Scott's place is more than we could possibly ask for! They are very welcoming, caring, and making us feel at home. Scott picked us up and drove us to Arthur's Seat, Sandra told us how to get buses the first night we were there; they are very helpful! The house itself is very beautiful and the room's clean and cosy. It's really close to the Royal Botanic Garden and it takes about 30 minutes walk to/from city center. We really enjoyed our stay there. Highly recommended.
Sandra and Scott are wonderful hosts. They treated us as their friends. They gave us good advice of travel plans, took us to a movie in one evening, gave us ride to town to catch the tour bus on Saturday morning.
Their house is very clean, cozy. Newly remodeled bath rooms, clean with big space. Very good location. Quite residential area with big trees in back yard. There are two bus lines within five minutes walk that can take you to the city center.
We had great time in Edinburgh. Here is some recommendation of local restaurants:
We felt more than welcome and comfortable at Sandra's and Scott's house! We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed it very much. We came with a rented car from Edinburgh airport. The location is easy to reach from the airport and has a free parking space. The house is gorges and situated in a calm and sophisticated area near the Royal Botanic Garden.
Downtown Edinburgh is a 20/25 minutes nice walk. Stockbridge only 10 minutes walk away offers a lot of restaurants and bars. New Town and Thistle Street with nice Restaurants is a 15 minutes walk.
Sandra and Scott are great hosts. They were very helpful with everything!... Sandra has had a lot of ideas what to do and what to sea!
Many thanks for a nice stay! We'll come again!
Sandra and Scott were amazing hosts. They picked me up from the bus station and proceeded to go above and beyond the call of air bnb duty-they offered breakfast, gave us travel advice, invited us to dinner one night, engaged us in conversation, and even took us to see the school that inspired Hogwarts. Their house is beautiful and spacious. I highly recommend that everyone stay with them-a home away from home!
We felt very welcome at Sandras and Scotts house. Scott had an open ear for every demand. He explained us the area und gave us very good suggestions for bars and restaurants in the area.
The lokation is quite and beautiful. The room is nice and we found everything we needed. The stay was a pleasure, thank you very much!
Part of me wants to leave a negative comment, because I want to keep Scott and Sandra for myself...but the truth gets in the way. Sandra and Scott have helped me and my friend Grazia immensely during the first days of our move to Edinburgh. The very first day, as we were getting to theirs late, Scott offered to pick us up from town. This had been a great relief from us, considering that we had huge luggage and no knowledge about Edinburgh at all. During the days with them, Scott and Sandra offered us not only a roof but also a friendly environment, advices, food, wine, and lovely conversations. As we're moving to Edinburgh I'll certainly keep in touch with them and will ask all my friends and family to book here, should they come and see me. This is definitely the best airbnb experience I've had.
We enjoyed our time at Sandra's. The room was lovely and spacious and the house was gorgeous. It is situated in a quiet part of Edinburgh very close to the botanical gardens. Stockbridge itself was only a 10 min walk away with plenty of good restaurants and bars to choose from. It is a 20/25 minute walk into central Edinburgh. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful and you were free to come and go as you pleased. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
A really nice stay in your lovely home :)
The room was wonderful and Scott advice very precious for us.
A good adress for all of those who wish to discover Edinburgh.
Sandra was a delightful guest. I thoroughly recommend her.
It was a pleasure to host Sandra and her husband. Great guests and easy to communicate to. They were very respectful of my apartment, came and left quietly and left the room in a good condition at the end of the stay. I loved having them stay, would welcome them anytime and would highly recommend them to any future hosts.
