Quiet and comfy Scottish traditional 'stair' apartment in local area with friendly and helpful neighbors. Be assured of a warm Scottish welcome in a home which is only 10 minutes by award winning local transport (24 hours) from Edinburgh City Center.
Equidistant from Portobello (Edinburgh's beach ) and Arthur Seat (ancient volcano) the area has parks and great shopping within a few minutes walking. This is a quiet haven for travelers from around the world hosted by an international traveler
This is a brick built property which has two bedrooms and a living/lounge area, bathroom and kitchen with laundry facilities. it has a drying green at the back of the house and a small veg/fruit garden to the side.
You will have the apartment to yourselves and it comfortably sleeps 4 with one double bed and one set of bunk beds
It is in a traditional 'Stair' (a small tenement ) which comprises 6 dwellings built around 60 years ago to house families in social housing. The families who are in the other apartments are local professional and retired people.

Yes based on whether I'm in town or not.
I love to meet folk from different places and may put the flat up for lone room hire or the whole flat so it might change on the Air BnB site from time to time.
