There are wonderful views across the private gardens form the rooms.
There is very little traffic, and friends from London have complained that it is too quiet! You may be able to hear the resident owl or woodpecker.
You are welcome to use the washing machine, please ask first and I'll show you how.
We have keys to the private Moray Feu gardens, which are a joy to explore and great for barbecues in the long summer evenings, or a handy shortcut down the hill.

Interaction with guests

We love to welcome visitors into our home, we can be flexible about check in as I work from home. For practical purposes, I prefer guests that have activities planned during the day as I work from home often during the week.

You are welcome to relax in the living room or make yourself a meal with ingredients from the farmers' market

Rachel and Raj were great hosts and the room was beautiful. The room and ensuite are extremely private and the inclusion of breakfast foods in the morning was a really lovely touch. Very close to the main shopping strip, Edinburgh Castle and other main attractions. Would highly recommend.

I had a truly lovely stay! It was very nearby the city center, and bus stops from the airport. Rachel and her family were incredibly easy to communicate with both in advance and during my stay. The room was incredibly comfortable and I slept like a dream. The park off of the flat is a beautiful place to stroll and the light coming through the windows in the morning was just gorgeous. Rachel gave me a number of recommendations when I checked in that were all walkable, and they were great. They also laid out a nice breakfast in the mornings to start you off for the day which was very kind. Many things are easily walkable from this great location! Thanks again, I hope to be back soon.

Hi we are Rachel and Navraj,

We love to travel and spend as much time as possible in Italy. We are just back from an awesome Air BnB trips to Barcelona and Japan.

When we are home we like to run and cycle, sometimes with our son tagging along too. We love to eat well, either out or entertaining at home. I work from home as a photographer, Navraj is an academic. We have two friendly cats at our listing "Georgian Splendour" who you might spot in the photos. We keep them out of the guest room. There are no pets in the other listings.

We enjoy entertaining visitors in our home and have met so many fantastic people through air bnb. Edinburgh is a great city, we'd love to share it with you. We have a pile of guide books and would be happy to help you plan your trip with recommendations of where to visit, eat and drink while you are here.

If you are travelling with kids, no problem. We can probably lend you a lot of the baby equipment you need to save you carrying it, and have a house full of books and toys plus lots of recommendations of things to do to keep your kids enteretained.

We speak English, French, Italian, Arabic, Punjabi and really terrible Russian

Looking forward to meeting you...
