There is a bus stop across the road from the house that will service the no5 bus and also bus stops at the top of the road no 44, no103 and 114 which takes 15 minutes into the city centre. After midnight ( or 11pm on a Sunday and bank holidays) a night bus no44 runs from the city centre to the top of our road.

Carolyn's place was very easy to get to since the bus stops right in front of her house. Carolyn was very welcoming and attentive with me. Definitely staying at her place again whenever I visit Edinburgh again.

Carolyn and her family are wonderful! Kind and organized. The bad room and the bathroom are very beautiful and clean. The location is good, well connected by buses that are very efficient. I recommend it.

Carolyn's place is absolutely lovely. It's in a quiet residential area but just minutes' walk away from portobello beach and just a 15 min bus ride to city centre. It felt like a hotel stay as I was so pampered - there was a TV and a mini fridge in my room and I have my own bathroom. I'll definitely stay here again if I come back!

The best airbnb I have stayed so far. Totally beyond my expectation. House- beautiful and my room is spacious and very cosy- just like my room at home! Location- close to beach and bus to city just in front of house. I left me car here and went to city by bus(hard to find parking in city) Hosts- very friendly and give me useful information. Highly recommend it! I will definitely book the same place if I visit Edinburgh again!
