Situated in a wonderful local neighbourhood, your bedroom is a sunny peaceful retreat only 15 minutes walk to all the wonderful attractions of lovely Edinburgh. It also has amazing views of Arthurs Seat! Friendly to all people! Free on street parking.

The space

Experience real Edinburgh staying with me in a bright traditional top floor Victorian tenement in an exciting part of town, walking distance to central Edinburgh but quiet and peaceful at the same time.

My flat is quite small, but I'd describe it as happy, eclectic and cosy! The bedroom is quite large relative to the flat.

I have made sure there is plenty of hanging space in the wardrobe for you as well as power sockets near the bed!! There is also plenty of other storage for all your belongings. There is a tv in the bedroom for relaxing with BBC iPlayer, and free Netflix for movies and tv shows if you don't want to go out in the evening!

You can also enjoy meals cooked in my kitchen. My flat is three floors up, all rooms are back and south-facing so often all you can hear is the sound of birds and seagulls softly in the background while sunlight streams through the windows.

I wake up with the light so there are also blackout blinds if you don't want to be woken by the very early Edinburgh sunrises in the summer!

I have two liquid passions - Tea and Gin! I have ordinary tea bags but guests are welcome to sample any of the teas from my tea shelves and brew to perfection in my special Tea Maker kettle! For coffee lovers there is also a nespresso coffee maker.

Guest access

This is a small, but cozy and homely apartment. I work long hours and am often away during the day when you have full access to the kitchen and living room. In the evening, although you have access to the living room, it is my downtime space and if you would like to watch something specific then it's best to do that on the TV in the bedroom!

The kitchen is small but has all regular appliances and you'll have a bit of cupboard and fridge space. You can use all my condiments (oil, salt, sugar, spices etc) for cooking small meals, as well as the washing machine should you need to do a wash!

I find most guests prefer to eat out for breakfast, but you are welcome to help yourself to whatever breakfast items I have (bread, cereal, milk, cheese and eggs usually!)

Interaction with guests

I love sharing my passion for Edinburgh (especially its foodie and drinking places) and hearing about where you come from, but I am happy for guests to be as independent as they wish to be.

Other things to note

My apartment is on the third floor of a Victorian tenement so there is no lift. For this reason it is not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. Mostly I stay in the apartment, but there are often times - usually for work - when I may not be there and you will have the place to yourself for some or all of your stay.

I'm a photographer from the UK in my 30s. Love travelling the world and experiencing it through the food especially. I'm chilled out, relaxed and having stayed in lots of airbnbs from Australia to the usa I feel I know what it takes to provide the best host experience
