Everything in description is accurate. Terry and Carmel were wonderful hosts and took good care of us. Quiet area and the 2 buses stop just outside the door both going towards town. Terry knows a lot about the place and gave us plenty of tips before our travels. Breakfast was lovely too, would highly recommend!

Terry and Carmel made us feel very welcome with a lovely cuppa. The location is nice and quiet close to the waterfront of Leith with plenty of restaurants etc. The room is lovely and bed nice and comfy. Carmel and Terry made sure that we had everything that we could need for our stay. Wished we could have stayed longer!

Terry and Carmel were great hosts, and they're home is really beautiful. We wanted somewhere reasonably priced and comfortable while we attended the Edinburgh Fringe, and what we got was above and beyond. Quick and easy to get to from the city centre, with great transport links and bus stops virtually outside their house. It was a great location to be able to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and decompress and unwind, but without being miles away. Terry and Carmel served a great continental breakfast that meant we were always set up for the day ahead. They're really interesting people, and are extremely sociable and helpful. They couldn't do enough for us, but would also leave us to it when relaxing or wanting to unwind in our room. The room itself was very comfortable and spacious, with a bathroom just across the hall. It was everything we wanted and needed for a pleasant stay. This was our first experience of an Airbnb, and Terry and Carmel made sure it was a memorable one.
