House Rules

I really hope you will enjoy your stay at my flat in Portobello and that you will want to visit Edinburgh again in the future. However I would be grateful if you would observe the following during your stay:
There is absolutely no smoking in the flat or common areas such as the staircase.
The flat is part of a tenement building so please respect my neighbours by keeping noise to a minimum late at night.
My neighbour sleeps below my sitting-room so I ask you not to play loud music or be otherwise noisy in this room after 10.30 at night.
If you are arriving late or leaving early I request that you do not use the sitting room/kitchen after midnight or before 7am to avoid disturbance.
You are welcome to use any of the kitchen facilities but please wash up and tidy away after you have used them.

You must also acknowledge
Must climb stairs - My flat is on the first floor at the top of one flight of communal stairs

Nice place in a good situation for walks along the Portobello promenade and close enough to Edinburgh city.

We had a great stay in Ian's flat. The location was just great, right by the ocean with a family friendly beach. Easy access to transit and downtown was only a 15 minute drive. Flat was cozy, best suited for max two people. Ian had great communication throughout!

We had a wonderful stay in Ian’s flat in Portobello! Ian’s place was very clean, and well-equipped, and he gave very detailed instructions for how to find and enter his flat. Portobello Beach is a lovely place for a stroll, with a number of restaurants to choose from (Ian gives a list of recommendations, as well as other helpful information about the area). A couple of grocery stores are within walking distance as well. The bus stop is a short walk away and was very handy in taking us downtown to see the sights. Parking was somewhat limited on the street, but there was plenty available in the lot at the end of the street. We would recommend Ian’s place to other visitors!

I have just finished a PhD in Community Supported Agriculture but I also earn a living working in the film and television industry as a Location Manager. I love the village feeling of Portobello and being close to the sea as well as being able to access the city in only 15 minutes. Apart from strolling along the promenade to the green van that sells coffees and pastries, I love walking up nearby Arthur's Seat and visiting the independent cinemas in the city.
