Welcome to Edinburgh... Come and meet me and my beautiful cats! You'll enjoy staying in my lovely flat and I look forward to meeting you! You'll have a comfortable double room (king size bed) in Leith, about 20 minutes from the city centre, close to fabulous restaurants (5 minutes).
Close to the Scottish Executive and the Royal Yacht Britannia, stay in a lovely double bedroom (double bed) in a grade 2 listed building near the Shore. Your room is not an ensuite, but there are two WCs and a bath and shower; your bed is equipped with a dual control electric blanket and there are tea and coffee making facilities in your room. There is a lovely sitting area with free wifi and freeview TV. We dine in the kitchen, it may be possible to provide you with dinner, depending on the owner's schedule.
This area has a number of the best restaurants in Edinburgh, including The Kitchin, Martin Wishart's, Fisher's and the Plumed Horse to name but a few within 5 minutes' walk. You are very close to the Scottish Executive and the Royal Yacht Britannia at the Ocean Terminal complex, plus a 30 minute slow walk via teh Water of Leith to the Botanics. There's direct access from the airport (bus 35) and the city centre (22) to within metres of the front door. (The owner may be able to collect you from the airport or station by arrangement). For drivers there's free on street parking on a charming cobbled street. Note the Victorian street lighting! Two beautiful Bengal cats share this apartment with their university lecturer/ actor/ singer owner. Your host will be very happy to tell you stories about Edinburgh (loosely based on fact!) of an evening. Leith is a mixed neighbourhood (there is social housing nearby) and although your room is double glazed there may be some noise from the street.
I love Edinburgh and I love living in this flat - it's like being in a wee castle or a jewel box - I hope to communicate a lifelong love of Edinburgh to you while you're here!
Your room, kitchen and living room with TV. (Piano by arrangement!)
Interaction with guests
As much or as little as required or possible - depends what I'm doing.
Please don't try to open the windows - you will need a key so ask me. I'm careful about this because I don't want the cats to jump out.
I'd rather you didn't smoke in your room.
You can make tea and coffee in your room, I have provided a selection.
You can operate the heating as desired.
Please don't bring anyone back - remember this is a home.
Please ask about using the kitchen - this may be possible.
I expect you to be over 21 and a responsible person who is not allergic to cats! You will be a cultured person who enjoys art and history and I'll be happy to explain mine to you...
I have friends all over the world and I hope you will join that group!
