Large room with a perfect location, close to city centre. I spent three nights as part of my holiday in Scotland. I would highly recommend it. I really appreciate their help. Very responsive and helpful from the first minute.

As soon as I arrived James greeted me and provided me with a guidebook for Edinburgh which was incredibly useful. My room was very spacious and clean and was really well located next to the Meadows. Close to the festival and very festival friendly. The only thing to note is Wifi at the house was very in and out for me, but there are lots of cafes or venues nearby that also have WiFi. Overall I had an awesome trip to Edinburgh. Thank you Monica, James & family for allowing me to stay in your beautiful home!

I arrived in Edinburgh for a job and didn't yet have a flat yet, so I decided to do airbnb for two weeks while I looked for a more permanent place. James and Monica's flat was very lovely, and very much felt like home. They were both very accommodating and kind, and I felt comfortable immediately. The location is very close to the center of town, about 15 minutes walk to the university campus and the Royal Mile. I'd highly recommend anyone to stay at James and Monica's flat, and I'd definitely stay again if I have the chance.
