About the Homestay
Welcome to my home. I live with my dog Brodie, in a quiet residential suburb of Edinburgh with excellent transport links to the city centre, about 25mins away by bus. My house has two double bedrooms (one available to guests), bathroom with bath & shower , lounge , kitchen and small sunny garden. I will provide a continental breakfast in the dining room and tea, coffee making facilities in your room. Also all bedding and towels and blankets. The house is centrally heated. There is also plentiful private parking for those who bring their own car.
My house is on an excellent bus route to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, Edinburgh University Kings Building campus and Royal Observatory. Also nearby and on a bus route are Straiton shopping centre and Cameron Toll.
I look forward to welcoming you to my home either for work or pleasure.
