    Nous avons passé une semaine chez Aleksandra. Elle nous a très bien accueilli et la chambre et la salle de bain étaient confortable et de bonne taille. Le petit déjeuner fourni avec le prix était de qualité et avec du choix. Thank you very much for your welcome Aleksandra.

    Aleksandra was great and really helpful! The room and the bathroom were super-clean. The house was located in a nice area, with a bus stop just outside. I totally recommend a stay there.

    Aleksandra and Mike were wonderful, friendly, hosts with a beautiful home. The room was cosy and comfortable, top rate bathroom facilities also.
    We were able to park easily outside the house and there is a bus stop just across the road that took us into the city centre.
    I would recommend Aleksandra and Mike as hosts and a convenient location to travel to the centre of Edinburgh.

    Worst guest experience ever. He didn’t respect our house rules at all. Left cooker on when no one at home when our web clearly saying NO cooking for guest.
    Room left in terrible mess! Never seen anything like.
    He didn’t have money to pay for full stay or buy dinner for himself.
    Demanded food on us.

How do I book?

Contact the host about your stay - tell them a little about yourself, why you are staying and ask any questions you have about their homestay. You will be able to book immediately after sending your message.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.

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.
