Private Shower-room/WC:
Located directly opposite the bedroom door, it is for your own private use during your stay as we have our own separate facilities upstairs. Towels and soap provided.
For guests with restricted mobility please note it is level access into the shower room/toilet but there is one step up into the shower. A shower stool is at your disposal, just let me know in advance.

We have just returned from a fantastic 6 days at the Edinburgh Fringe, made even better by our stay at Ishbel's. From the moment we arrived she was welcoming and friendly, and we felt at home in her house. Our room and bathroom were clean, spacious and very comfortable, and the daily breakfast selection was a lovely surprise each morning. On top of that, the location is perfect for exploring Edinburgh on foot. A top notch airbnb experience all round - please do not hesitate to book with Ishbel.

We had a wonderful stay at Ishbel's house! The house is in a very good position to reach the city centre by foot or bus and even though the room is on ground floor is very quiet. The bathroom is very tiny but well equipped. Ishbel was an amazing host and her kindness and helpfulness made us really enoyed Edinburgh! She also can speak Italian fluently and that made the communication very easy.

Ishbels home is in a very good location, it is a quiet place to stay but well situated for getting about in Edinburgh. The bus and tram system is very good and close by but walking is a very good option as well. We were attending rugby matches at Murrayfield and also meeting friends elsewhere in the city. The room is spacious and well equipped with access to its own shower room, breakfast is generous and Ishbel, is informative host and relaxed and flexible with arrangements.

I have always loved travelling and living in different cultures. Fortunately my work took me all over the world but, along with family responsibilities, came the desire to come back home to Edinburgh.
Edinburgh is a great city to live in and I particularly enjoy playing tennis, walking, the cinema and generally the delights that Edinburgh has on offer.
For a number of years we've been hosting adult learners of English as a Foreign Language who come to study in Edinburgh. I enjoy meeting new people as does my son who, in true student fashion, passes through with his friends from time-to-time - and are very helpful when it comes to recommending the best pubs and clubs to visit!
