We have just returned from a fantastic 6 days at the Edinburgh Fringe, made even better by our stay at Ishbel's. From the moment we arrived she was welcoming and friendly, and we felt at home in her house. Our room and bathroom were clean, spacious and very comfortable, and the daily breakfast selection was a lovely surprise each morning. On top of that, the location is perfect for exploring Edinburgh on foot. A top notch airbnb experience all round - please do not hesitate to book with Ishbel.

Ishbels home is in a very good location, it is a quiet place to stay but well situated for getting about in Edinburgh. The bus and tram system is very good and close by but walking is a very good option as well. We were attending rugby matches at Murrayfield and also meeting friends elsewhere in the city. The room is spacious and well equipped with access to its own shower room, breakfast is generous and Ishbel, is informative host and relaxed and flexible with arrangements.

My wife and I stayed here as a base for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. We were warmly welcomed by Ishbel and shown all of the facilities. Our room was spacious and clean with its own ensuite. Ishbel provided plenty of information about travel into the city and buses. The walk was only 10 minutes to the city centre so ideal for getting in and out. Ishbel also provided a lovely breakfast each morning. Our stay was relaxing and we have no problem with recommending this property to any travellers to Edinburgh.

Ishbel was a very helpful and friendly host. Our room was bigger than we expected with good access to a canal-side walk and easy walk into the city.

Ishbel is a great host, she was flexible about our time of arrival and very friendly. The house is tidy and comfortable and in a perfect location (10 min walk from Grassmarket). Everything was clean and the breakfast was fresh and tasty. I would not hesitate to book with Ishbel again, highly recommended!

We stayed at Ishbel's place for 3 nights and had a lovely time - she really is a super host! The room is spacious and cosy, the bed comfortable and the whole place, including kitchen and bathroom very clean! Ishbel made us feel very welcome and prepared a nice breakfast every morning which was a great start to the day! The location is perfect - it's a 15-20mins walk to the city centre but there are plenty of great bars and restaurants just down the road. We'd definitely come back and recommend this place!

I have always loved travelling and living in different cultures. Fortunately my work took me all over the world but, along with family responsibilities, came the desire to come back home to Edinburgh. Edinburgh is a great city to live in and I particularly enjoy playing tennis,…
