Other things to note

IMPORTANT Please can you message me with a estimated arrival time when making a booking reservation/enquiry as I will be living several miles away from the apartment during your stay. Please note that unfortunately we are unable to do check-ins on Sundays at the moment. Check in times are strictly between 2pm and 6pm (latest arrival time 5.45pm). Because my partner and I will be staying a few miles away from the flat during your visit, and to fit in with our work and family commitments, it is important that we know your estimated check in time well in advance. If you would like to have a check in outwith these times please contact me with the details to discuss whether this is possible before making your booking. For example, for guests who live in the UK it may be possible to send you the keys in advance for a small additional fee of £8 to cover special delivery postage. An additional fee of £20 will be charged for late check ins or late check outs which should be agreed in advance. Many thanks.

HOGMANANY: Sorry check outs and check ins are not possible on 31st December or 1st January.

Kara was very friendly and informative. She prepared lots of information about tours; ex. there was a hop-on bus stop nearby to Leith! Also, we actually enjoyed the food at Bluebird cafe and Brandon's of Canonmills, both next to Karas'! Overall a great apartment with all that you will need. The only thing that bothered me was one of the neighbors was a heavy smoker and the smell was getting in the apartment, triggering my allergies. Luckily I was out enjoying all of Edinburgh had to offer! Thank Kara for being a great host!

Great apartment in a decent location. Most things are located within a short walk. There is a grocery store (Tesco) just around the corner which is really convenient. Kara is very responsive and a great overall host. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!

We loved Kara’s apartment and the ease of walking or taking the bus throughout the city. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen well equipped, including a French press for making coffee. It was great to have off street parking for our car. It is a clean, welcoming apartment and we highly recommend staying there.

The location was great for accessing all of the interesting sights of Edinburgh we were keen to see. Easily accessed by public transport (trams and buses) but we also enjoyed walking along the streets of Edinburgh and experiencing a little of the Scottish lifestyle. A delightful area to see. Kara made us feel very welcome with the special treats provided (chocolates, breakfast supplies and scones). With such comfortable surrounds our recovery from our long flights was much easier.

The location and the grocery store right around the corner was extremely convenient. The apartment exceeded our expectations. Parking was easy to find within the premises. Overall the apartment was really comfortable and clean. Rooms were spacious and the kitchen included all the necessities and more. We we're really satisfied with Kara's apartment.

My name is Kara and I've been living in Edinburgh for 30 years. A friend introduced me to Airbnb and I became an Airbnb host in December 2013. I have also been a homestay host since 2006 for overseas students coming to Edinburgh to learn English. I really enjoy being a host and welcoming folk to Edinburgh. As this listing is for my whole flat you'll have privacy throughout your stay but I will be happy to help you with any questions you may have about the flat and about Edinburgh,

As an Airbnb guest I usually travel with my partner to other destinations within Scotland and Europe. l love studying foreign languages and can speak French and German. I'm currently learning Scottish Gaelic too. Whilst travelling (and at home) I love walks in the countryside, swimming and eating out. At the moment my favourite cuisines are Korean and Japanese but I also enjoy Chinese and Indian food, and Scottish cuisine of course.
