About the Homestay
Our family home forms the upper 2 floors of a lovely traditional Victorian Villa. It comprises 4 bedrooms in total, a spacious drawing room, dining area, kitchen, 2 bathrooms (one en-suite) and a private garden to the rear. We live on a quiet road, opposite a beautiful park which is very close to the Firth of Forth waterfront.
In terms of location, our property is situated in the desirable area of Trinity (on the North side of Edinburgh) and has 'free' parking and is on a direct bus service (No 23) which goes right through Princes Street into Bristo Square.
City centre is very accessible by bus, car or a walk of around 20-25 minutes.
We have Wi-fi and TV.
There are 4 of us in the family, myself, my husband and 2 kids who are mostly away at university.
We love travelling and meeting people from different countries. Other favourite things to do are walking around this beautiful city, watching films, meeting up with friends, cooking and food in general (especially far eastern cuisines).

About the Area
Our house is located on the north side of the city in a quiet and safe area. We are under 2 miles from Princes Street which is in central Edinburgh and only 25-30 minutes’ drive from the airport.
Trinity is a lovely, friendly residential area with lots of local amenities. Only a short bus ride from the city centre which takes about 15 minutes, it feels like an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. You can enjoy the light summer evenings with spectacular sunsets from the eateries at Newhaven Harbour nearby.
Also, the city cycle path is immediately accessible and is a pleasant, leafy walking or cycling route to many areas in the city.
It is a mainly residential part of town but there are small shops, chemists, a post office , coffee shops and a supermarket within easy walking distance.

I really enjoyed staying with Mikki and her husband. They were very helpful and forthcoming. Would definitely stay there again!
Very nice! Hosts clearly like what they do, they are very flexible and the rooms are actually quite big. Perfect location right next to a busstop but still very quiet. Close to the sea and on route to the airport.
Will certainly be recommending whenever someone wants to stay. We had a good time.
Mikki und ihr Mann sind sehr nette und hilfsbereite Menschen. Sehr weltoffen. Die Wohnung ist traumhaft schön. Das Zimmer sehr sauber. Jederzeit wieder!
Mikki was so welcoming and helpful. The accommodation was in a great location and was very comfortable and spacious for five of us. We especially enjoyed chatting with her and her husband over breakfast. I would definitely recommend.
We were very happy to meet Mikki : her welcome ,the breakfast time and her help for visit and all informations we needed. She is a very nice and interesting person
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
We've been very well to Mikki! The suite with 2 rooms were we stayed was very comfortable and gave us the right relax after all the day we was out to visit the city and the region.
Mikky is very hospitable, and help us to enjoy our holiday helping also with the simpler things (Bus instructions, which place visit, where eat...). Her breakfast was great, following our taste! But don't lose her Traditional Scottish Breakfast! it is great. If I'll come back to Edimburgh I'll look again to stay to Mikky, and I really suggest to everyone to book a room here! You'll have a very confortable experience! Many thanks Mikki, our holiday's success was also yours!!

Wir waren zu dritt 9 Tage bei Mikki und wir würden jederzeit wieder zu ihr und ihrem Mann fahren. Die beiden sind sehr gastfreundlich, hilfsbereit und aufgeschlossen. Unser Zimmer war hell, freundlich, sauber und einfach schön. Wir haben fast jeden Abend gekocht und unseren Aufenthalt genossen. Auch die Wohngegend ist sehr schön, es ist ruhig und ein kleiner Park direkt vor der Haustür. Auch gibt es eine einfache, direkte Busverbindung in die Stadt. Freunden empfehle ich diese Unterkunft in jedem Fall. Andrea
