À propos de ce logement
This is a large light attractive double room with a combination of original features and modern comforts. Period features include wooden flooring and window bay along with the high ceiling, cornicing, antique(?) furniture and a matching chesterfield sofa. The room is warm and comfortable, especially the bed, and the double window affords views over the city. A lovely central location from which to enjoy Edinburgh.
Warm, friendly and relaxed environment. That's the most important thing about this flat; how well those of us who live here get along. Mostly it's quiet, our place away from the rest of the world - we like reading, cooking and watching movies. It's the kind of place where you check if anyone needs to use the bathroom before jumping in the shower for 20 minutes. If that sounds like you please read on…
This is a carefully modernised traditional Edinburgh tenement flat built in the 19th century. Its architecture, decor and comfort combine to make this a very homely flat. It boasts many original features including large windows, high ceilings, cornicing, wood panelling and solid wood floors. It also offers modern creature comforts such as temperature-controlled gas central heating, unlimited hot water, double glazing, modern fitted kitchen and good quality furniture.
I own a few flats and look after a few others for friends but this is a real Edinburgh home, it's my home. I bought 10 years ago and have put a lot of time and effort into making it feel right. And because it's my home it comes with some very special features including an esoteric audiophile hifi system and home cinema, high end kitchen equipment (Miele, NEFF, Dualit, etc.) and a luxury heated-floor marble bathroom. This is a lovely space to spend time in and the perfect base from which to explore the city from.
Easter Road is walking distance (about a mile) from Princes Street, Waverley Train Station and the Royal Mile. It is the closest point to town with free on-street parking so ideal if you're travelling by car. If you don't fancy walking then the award-winning local bus service runs routes right past the flat direct to both the new town and the old town.

After that, well I live here so ask questions when you see me or call if i'm out. You will get my email address when your booking is confirmed and my phone number is on all the key fobs.
DISCOUNTS & CHARGES
Some discounts are applied automatically. For example, if you stay for a month you get 35% discount or for a week you get 15% discount. AirBnB's system is good but not perfect so if you want to stay for 2-3 weeks I can give you 20-30% discount but have to apply it manually.
When you enquire about renting this room I will send you a special offer with the correct price. Similarly, if you want an extra bed and bedding to be provided beyond the included double bed there is a one-off charge that I will apply manually. Regardless the length of your stay an extra single bed and bedding costs £15 while a double costs £25.
No smoking in the building.
Please check if anyone needs to use the bathroom before taking a shower.
Please keep communal areas tidy, especially the kitchen:
Wipe surfaces, put dirty dishes in the dish-washer and wash pots, etc.
Please use and enjoy the home cinema carefully and put CDs away.
Full instructions can be found in the house manual.
If you have issues please talk to me.
Be nice and enjoy your stay.
That's about it.

Hello, I'm Zeb.
I'm a 38 years old graduate. I divide my year between organising music festivals, teaching massage and travelling. When not working I play squash, listen to music, watch movies and read a lot. Also enjoy DIY and have done a lot of work on my flat over the last few years - it's now a really comfortable place to spend time. I like my home to be quietly sociable and welcoming, if that sounds good to you please come and stay here.
