Cosy double room with low bed in Bohemian flat in central Edinburgh. Wake up to a gorgeous view of Arthur's Seat, in the heart of green spaces, cafés and shops. 10 minute walk to city centre. Use my WiFi, and paint on my wall!
My home is on the top floor of a very central, Victorian era building and shows off with gorgeous views over Arthur's Seat in the East and the Meadows in the West. It's a Bohemian flat with few right angles and plenty of character.
The Meadows are a minute away, and all local shops, food places and buses are on the nearby street that will take you to the city centre in a 10 minute walk.
WiFi internet is available, and there are a number of DVDs here for general use.
Free parking is a 5min busride away. Outside of business hours, parking is also free on the streets outside (get in touch with me for directions and parking rules).
The price one pays for the great view is 4 flights of stairs and no lift/elevator. Keeps you fit, though.
There are 2 bedrooms, one of them occupied mostly by myself. Your room has a double bed that is low to the ground, a comfy lounge chair by the window, and a wardrobe with ample storage.
My kitchen is currently a work in progress, so unfortunately there is no guest access to it. I am providing a small fridge and a kettle in the hall outside your room for you, including a selection of teas, for your most basic needs. For hearty all day breakfast I can strongly recommend the café right next to my front door, or a slightly fancier one a 3 minute walk away. There are a few fairly new artisan coffee places in the immediate area, and any type of restaurant can be found within a few minutes' walk - including the world's best Indian takeaway (in my opinion).
Please note that you would share the bathroom and the rest of the flat with me and/or the guests that are staying in the second bedroom! The bathroom has a powerful shower and is bright and friendly. It even has a plant.
All bedding is provided. Let me know if you have any special requests, like two separate duvets instead of one large one.
I have a growing mural in the hall - if you are feeling creative, I invite you to contribute to it. The paints are waiting for you!
Other than that I like it clean and tidy within reason. So it isn't clinical, but in no way a pigsty.
I'm always happy to provide tips for activities around my beloved Edinburgh catering to all ages and interests. If you found something good, let me know so I can share that with future visitors!

I will always be available either in person or on the phone for information, recommendations and help. I enjoy sharing my love for the city and my guests' travel stories.
I generally live at the listing, work from home some days and from my studio at others. We can arrange my presence in the flat for when you need me to be around.
Please be extra aware that I am on the 4th floor and there is no lift/elevator. So all your luggage has to go up all that way - I can only say that the views are definitely worth it.
My house is full of travel adapters, so I'm pretty sure I have the right one for you, but feel free to ask in advance. The same is true for phone chargers - just in case!
I am currently in the process of reorganising various parts of my flat. This means there is no kitchen access, but otherwise it should not affect you. But if anything bothers you, please do not hesitate to let me know straight away, so I can make your stay as comfortable as possible.
• Please be sure to have read my listing description. There are a few things to note about my home, and I'd wish for you to have a happy, comfortable stay and know what to expect.
• This is a non-smoking flat - smokers please smoke out of the nearest window in the stairwell.
• Please avoid walking through the flat with muddy shoes, especially the bathroom.
• Please leave your bedroom and the bathroom more or less as you found them. If you break something, please fix it or replace it - and let me know straight away, so I can help sort it out.
• Don't hesitate to ask any question. Please tell me right away if you are unhappy with something.
• Please avoid being drunk, and don't bring drugs into my home. It is a lovely, quirky house, but not a party flat.
• Please don't leave behind any toiletries or food.
• Please help yourself to a cup of tea from the selection of herbal, fruity or regular teas.
• Please let me know if you'd like me to provide milk (whole or reduced fat) or soy, lactose free or other types of milk for your arrival.

I am an Austrian who chose at some point to live in Edinburgh. A translator and crafty person, always having a sewing or decorating project on the go.
5 things I can't live without are my home in Edinburgh, my home in Vienna apparently (I do keep going back), my fabric collection, my (camper) van, and a N64 console.
When I first lived in Edinburgh, I had a *wow* moment every time I turned a corner. I hope to share this with as many people as possible who come here to visit.
As a host, I'm happy to set you up with everything you need to enjoy your stay, including a well-worn city map with markings of the good stuff and the nice walks. I have also in the past organised baby carriers and baby car seats for people, and my flat is generally child friendly in case you fancy travelling with your wee ones. I'm out and about a lot, splitting time between home and my studio, and my various creative projects - so you will probably only see me when you need me.
That said, I have been seen taking my guests camping to the beach for a night. And if I do go out to fun places, I'd try to take you along if I think it's your thing.
There is a mural on my wall that is always waiting for expansions, so any guests are invited to grab the paints and contribute.
