Barbara and Marley are delightful hosts, super friendly, helpful, and their home is very comfortable. Handy for public transport into Edinburgh city centre/Leith, or simply walk down to the sea-front and along to the cafes at Cramond.

Me and my daughter spent a marvellous week at Barbara's and Marley's home. Cozy room, with comfortable bed. Barbara was great, very helpful. If you don't have your visit to Edinburgh well organised she will give you good tips of what to do. And no worries about Marley, is a sweet and well behaved dog. We felt at home. Thank you Barbara xx

I want to say how wonderful host Barbara is. Before going to Edinburgh, she was quickly responsive about our enquires, so we already felt her warmth. At our early arrival she waited for us and we met little Marley, who is the most educated, intelligent and cute dog we've ever saw, he is well behaved and Barbara and him have a lot of tricks to show, they are great to have fun with. We also enjoyed a dinner together, Barbara is always welcoming and attentive to our needs, she goes above and beyond! Her house is really beautiful and the bedroom is great and big, the house is located in a nice neighborhood, about 15 minutes away from the center of the city; the buses come every 7 minutes, and they are well served even on weekends, so no problem at all about distances and transport. She also gave us suggestions to take one particular bus to see the Sea side, we did that and we enjoyed another view of beautiful Edinburgh. We had a bit of a downtime because the day of our departure, sadly an Earthquake hit our country and she found out in the news very early in the morning, so she gave us a cup of tea and made sure that us and our families were ok, that was extra nice of her, she is extremely considerate and I have no more words than to be grateful that we stayed in her place regarding our late booking. Edinburgh is also one of the best cities in the world, so highly recommended to spent a few days there. Regarding food, she has menus and all sorts of recommendations to eat outside, for an affordable price. Highly recommend to spent your holiday at Barbara´s place.
