Wonderful couple, they really make yourself at home. I had a very nice stay with them.
Catherine and John were amazing to stay with! The room/home/location was lovely, and they were extremely hospitable!! Thank you for everything!
Lovely place and hosts! Thank you
Quiet home, spotlessly clean and a lovely warm welcome. Catherine is a great host. Would stay again and I highly recommend.
The room is clean and tidy, the hosts are warm and hospitable, I feel very comfortable, thank you, I hope to stay here again next time.
Catherine and John are excellent hosts! This year I took a show up to the Edinburgh Fringe and myself and my producer were both so happy that we found Catherine and John’s house. The house was clean, with very comfortable beds, and was easily accessible into town via the bus. Not only that, but Catherine and John were really friendly, chatty and made us feel very welcomed. It was also very affordable considering how many others unnecessarily overcharge fringe performers for accommodation this time of year. Thanks Catherine and John! Highly recommended
Perfect stay at Catherine and John´s home. Very friendly and easygoing.
If I come back to Edinburgh I am going to do it at the same place.
First of all this was my first time to visit edinbrugh and actually this family made my trip soo great, they are so friendly their home is so clean and everything i need was there , I loved the time I spent with them , if i have a chance to come to edinbrugh i absolutely will stay with them again . I highly recommend this Family to stay with ,
Catherine's and her husband's house is lovingly renovated, furnished and clean.
I felt very comfortable in my cozy room.
They take good care for their guests and truly want to make sure you feel at home.
I was invited to feel free in the house and the sweet garden at all times.
They were very helpful in giving me tips on places to visit and general advice for my stay.
I enjoyed the nice conversations, whenever they arose.
I would recommend Catherin's homestay 100% and whenever I visit Edinburgh the next time, I hope this place will be available.
Thank you very much for that great stay in Edinburgh :-).
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?

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.
