Heather is a great host, very kind. The house is very nice and feature, with the bus stop right in front. The center is only few minutes away. Definitely a place to recommend

Heather's place is all it says and more. Beautifully presented, elegant and comfortable in a great location. Just a short bus ride from the centre of Edinburgh. A very picturesque setting yet close to the bus stop. We would definitely recommend.

Heather gave us a very warm welcome indeed. We had a lovely living area -with a piano, very comfortable linen and towels, thoughtful touches everywhere. It was an unexpected delight! I can highly recommend this as a super place to stay for Edinburgh (bus into town only a minute away) and for Murrayfield (very close).

Great location. Great place. Great host. I cannot speak highly enough of Heather and her beautiful home. It's a wonderful cottage located near the river. You're a 15 min walk from the city centre with buses running outside the front door if you feel lazy. The airport bus literally stops beside the house so this was very handy. The cottage is wonderfully decorated and spotless. Big bedroom, lovely bathroom and huge living area. We also had use of the kitchen which had everything you need. Heather was a fantastic host and made us feel at home in her home. She is very helpful and accommodating. We had a great stay. Wonderful city with accommodation to match.

Heather was a fantastic host for our stay in Edinburgh! Nothing was ever too much and she had the most amazing knowledge of the area, which was of great use to us being first time visitors to Edinburgh! Her house was beautiful, clean and the attention to detail was fantastic. The smallest details made the biggest difference to our stay and show Heathers great hosting skills. Thank you very much, we shall be recommending this place to all future visitors of Edinburgh!

I loved Heather's house sooooo much! The location was great and only 10 minutes bus riding to the main scenic spots, but we were staying at her peaceful house with spacious rooms like staying at a 5* hotel. Heather is an artist with good taste on room decor. The bedroom was so comfortable. She also granted us the access to her kitchen, which was a plus. She also recommended us lovely cafes, which were really good. I'm happy to recommend Heather's house to my friends who will travel to Edinburgh! Many thanks Heather!

Heather User ProfileHeather is a superhost.

I am lucky enough to live in the most beautiful house in Edinburgh ( at least I think so). It has an amazing garden that lies on the river of leith and has a huge amount of plants, flowers and fruit trees. I work as a botanical artist,selling cards and gifts at The Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh and various National Trust for Scotland properties and my garden is a constant source of inspiration for me.

I have lived in Edinburgh for most of my life and know my way around very well. The house is pretty well central to everywhere in Edinburgh, so if you are a visitor, with my knowledge of the city and the location of the house, getting around should be very easy.

You will be living in one half of the house with your own front door and access to the kitchen. I live in the other half and will be on hand if you need help with anything.

Please feel free to get in touch if you want to know more and I look forward to meeting you if you if you decide to stay.
