My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, and families (with kids).
I have 3 rooms available – listed separately. Room 1 (this listing) is an elegant double room, room 2 has a single bed and a Z-bed so suitable for one adult or 2 children (and also has a toybox), and room 3 has a double futon. I have an en-suite so guests have sole use of the main shower room.
Rooms 1 and 2 face the street so there will be some traffic noise, room 3 is at the back and very quiet.
- I’m a 10-15 minute walk from Princes Street – close enough to be central but far enough away to be quieter. Buses 23 and 27 stop outside the flat, and 8 and 36 stop round the corner.
- Arrival time can be flexible – I work nearby so will pop out to greet you when you arrive, but please leave by 8.45am on workdays, or 10.30am at weekends.
- A simple self-service breakfast of cereal and toast will be available – and you can help yourself to tea and coffee anytime. You’re welcome to cook if you clean up after yourselves – but if you want a full cooked breakfast there are some brilliant independent cafes in Canonmills.
- You’re welcome to use the shared garden but probably won’t want to as the river (Water of Leith) is across the road and the Botanics are round the corner...
Hi, I’ve been living in Edinburgh for 5 years, but visiting for many before that as I lived in Dundee since I was a teenager. Mountains, trees and rivers are my favourite things but I love living in this beautiful city and that there’s always something to do or see. I'm looking forward to hosting and welcoming people from around the world to Edinburgh.
