This was our first experience of using Airbnb and we were not disappointed. Jim made us more than welcome and the room was large, comfortable and very pleasant for temperature, outlook and facilities. We were welcome to use the kitchen for drinks and eating and preparing food. Good bathroom facilities too. The location was brilliant for access to the city but also quiet which helped us have really good rest at night. Jim was happy to provide any information we wanted and advised on a few things we wouldn't have been aware of which helped us to maximise our stay which was for a week.

I got a very warm welcome from Jim in his gorgeous Edinburgh apartment. I felt very relaxed and enjoyed our conversations. The room is stunning - beautiful decor and very clean and well presented. Very convenient location for getting into town. I would highly recommend this to anyone! Helen

Pictures do not really do justice to this beautiful and unique room/house. Very elegant victorian (georgian?) style, combined with some quirky/artistic touches by the owner make it a delightful stay. Walking distance from loads of great restaurants, pubs and attractions in the city and the neighborhood feels very safe. Jim was a great host and communicated clearly about the location and arrangements, and had good recommendations on local activities.

We have a wonderful stay in Jim's house. The room was very large, the bed comfortable, and having the use of the kitchen and one of the sitting rooms was an added bonus. It is in a quiet part of the centre, yet only 5 minutes walk from Haymarket station. Jim was away abroad at the time, but still found time to answer my queries. Our train back was late afternoon, and it was great to be able to leave our luggage there while we spent our last day out. Definitely recommended, and we might even come back ourselves !

We were really happy with this place. It was exactly as Jim had described. The house itself is stunning and the room is very large with an extremely comfortable bed. Jim was really easy to deal with and very accommodating and let us leave anytime we wanted on our check out day (New Year’s Day). The location is perfect, it’s only a 5 min walk into town and to the metro/train. I would highly recommend this listing.

Jim was very welcoming and his house was a beautiful and convenient base from which to explore Edinburgh. We would highly recommend anyone to stay here.

James was very helpful and welcoming, without being intrusive. The room was big and airy, and about a 25 minute walk to the city centre. All in all, a lovely stay.
