Je vous recommande l’accueil de Susan et Andrew.
j’ai passé un excellent séjour,elle m’a bien conseillée .Je suis ravie pour sa gentillesse et sa bienveillance !!!lmerciiiiiii
Susan and Drew were really nice and thoughtful. They left me a lot of space, I had my own keys, I could use the bathroom and the kitchen when I needed to, I didn't have to check in or out at a specific hour, so basically I had more freedom than in a hotel.
The appartement is well situated. It is a 13 minutes journey by bus from the appartement to the city center and a bus shows up every 10 to 15 minutes, there is also a night bus until 4am, so it is quite easy to go out either to visit or to enjoy the nightlife of Edinburgh. Bus tickets are quite affordable too, so don't worry about that (you can check fares on Lothian Buses if you need more information).
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 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.
