My bright, cosy and central 2-bedroom flat is in the lively and cultural area of Leith. It is close to great cafes, bars, and supermarkets. It is a peaceful home and only a 10-minute bus journey, or 20-minute walk, from the bus and train stations and city centre. You'll love my place because of the flood of daylight, comfortable bedroom, cosy dining kitchen, the vibrant neighbourhood and closeness to Leith shore area.

Please note: There is a well-behaved cat living here, in case of allergies.

The bedroom is bright and fully furnished with a new double bed and light carpet, small desk and chair, chest of drawers, small wardrobe and WiFi access available.

I enjoy hosting and meeting people from different cultures and have travelled and lived in a few countries myself. For a while I worked in an English language school with international students and I'm originally from Germany but have lived here for over 15 years. So I know what it's like to arrive in a new place and I enjoy making people feel welcome. I speak English, German, some French and a tiny bit of Portuguese. Edinburgh is beautiful and welcoming and I'm sure you will enjoy it very much.

If you are interested in finding out more please just get in contact. I look forward to meeting you!

Thanks and best wishes,

    Very nice room, enough space for all my stuff. Clean flat, everyone was concerned with keeping all the communal spaces clean. Mira and her flatmate were both very kind people and also included me in their social life. 5/5 would stay there again.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
