House Rules

If using Instant Book please send a reservation request for Saturday or Sunday check ins in September 2017 as I am not available for weekend check ins this month and would need to check if a friend/family member is available first.

Please advise your estimated arrival time when making a reservation so I can arrange to be in the flat to check you in. Please let me know of any travel delays as soon as you become aware of them so that I can re-juggle other commitments if possible. Check in is strictly between 2pm and 6pm (latest arrival time 5.45pm).

For your security and mine, please keep the apartment front door locked at all times.

Please ensure that the electric panel heater in the bedroom and the electric fire in the living room fireplace are switched off when you are out or sleeping. Please do not switch the shower on and off repeatedly when showering as this can damage the electrical unit.

I don't charge a cleaning fee so please leave the apartment clean and tidy (e.g. wash, dry and put away dishes, pots etc. which you use) as you would expect to find it.

Before you check out please can you put your rubbish (including partly used drinks/food items) in the large containers situated in the 'tunnel' entrance to Rodney Place. Check out is up to 11am on the day of departure.

Many thanks and have a fantastic time in Edinburgh!

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.

All good, everything as promised. Easy meet-up for key. Right by a bus into city. Good information in a house manual. Loads of practical things in the cupboards; plastic bags, condiments, food for breakfast, bread in freezer etc. Planning another visit!

Nice spacious apartment with good amenities. Kara was a very informative and welcoming host. Getting to the city center is fairly easy with either a short walk or catching the bus just outside. Would stay again!

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!

We had a great stay in Kara's place in Edinburgh. The location was great as it was only a short walk into town. The flat is located in a nice part of town that has pubs, restaurants and shops nearby. The flat was comfortable and had everything we needed. Communication with Kara regarding check in and out was speedy. I would definitely recommend this a place to stay.

This beautiful second floor flat was a perfect home base for four days of exploring the city. Clean, spacious, well-appointed with a great bathroom and kitchen facilities, and superb wifi.

Kara User ProfileKara is a superhost.

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.
