About the Homestay
I work Monday to Friday and the children of course have school. We have a happy home, which we look after. The house is kept clean and tidy at all times - Well maybe not so much my sons room (haha), but all other areas.
We live on a bus route which take you into Edinburgh and are only 3 miles from the train line which also runs into Edinburgh or further afield. Edinburgh is around 7 miles away from Loanhead.
My children are well behaved kids, with good manners and both enjoy "talking" and getting to know people.

Louise is lovely as a host! Her house is warm and you can feel a sense of home. She also helps with suggestions for tourists around the city. I had a great time. A great place to stay at!
For sure you can feel at home here!!
Louise is just wonderful - she's been very helpful and nice to us. She even came to the bus station to find us. Her house is lovely and we couldn't dream of a better house to stay in for a couple of days in Edinburgh. Thank you Louise!
Clean, cozy, quiet, comfortable house! Highly recommend for students. Everything's perfect in the house and Louise cleans the room for me everyday which is really thankful. Just a little bit far from the city centre. You can take the bus which is located 2 mins away from the house. (^.^)
Our stay at Louise’s was without fault. Louise was exceptionally helpful and we certainly got the impression that nothing was too much hassle. Her home was spotless, cosy and very inviting. We couldn’t have asked for any more and would happily return should another trip to Edinburgh present itself. A 5 star experience.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
