Thank you so much Sandra for letting us stay in your home! The place was perfect for us, for the short amount of time we were here. The bed was comfortable, we we were able to get a good nights sleep each night. We also loved the view from the seating room. The location is perfect, in a quiet residential area, but easy walking distance to the main streets and attractions in Edinburgh. Thank you for an incredible air bnb experience!

Sandra is very friendly and helpful! Her Airbnb got an amazing view of Edinburgh, we had such good time staying at her place. It's located in a very beautiful and quit street, nice walk behind and close to Haymarket train station and west end of princes street. Highly recommend!

I had an amazing time staying with Sandra. She was so helpful there were some things I forgot back in the states like a charger and she helped out. The view is beautiful, the area is wonderful and easy to get to. Everything is around and Sandra is there if you need anything. The home is clean, quite, and comfortable. I would go there again!

My wife and I were visiting Edinburgh at the end of a business trip and found Sandra's apartment on airbnb at the last minute. From the moment we arrived Sandra made us welcome and nothing was too much trouble for her. The apartment is spacious and our room was cosy with a lovely leafy view over the up-market part of town in which this apartment is situated. Felt like we were in Mayfair in London - within walking distance of the heart of town and all the leading attractions of Edinburgh. A fantastic find from our perspective. Would highly recommend and even better if you are a coffee lover (or coffee snob like us), then just a few blocks down the road is a great little coffe shop called "Cairngorn Coffee" on the corner of Frederick Street & Melville Place.

Sandra has been very kind to us during the stay, full of attention. The apartment is really nice, clean, and well located (nice area of west end, 20 min by foot to Waverley bridge). I recommend Sandra and would gladly stay there again !

We had the great privilege to be Sandra's first guests and we were not disappointed at all. Sandra provided us with a wonderful and most hospitable stay in her beautiful home. She was also very helpful in providing some spots around her home that was very nice to see and experience. She is very close to the main streets of New Town for some nice pubs / restaurants as well as the nice shopping spots around George St. The castle and Old Town as not a far walk either. We had such a great experience and would recommend her to future guests.

Sandra User ProfileSandra is a superhost.

I am a keen outdoor person, I enjoy hill walking, cycling and swimming and, of course, living in Edinburgh and Scotland. I am a teacher so enjoy travelling in my long summer holidays. Especially to Canada to visit my daughter and son-in-law.
