Two lovely bedrooms, one king, one double, with guest shower-room, in a private floor in this beautiful Merchiston double upper home. Both bedrooms have TV and the large bedroom has a small guest sitting area. Linen and towels provided. A self-service breakfast is available in the large kitchen/dining room. Guests are also welcome to use the kitchen facilities to prepare food for themselves if required.
Guests have private access to a modern private shower-room, with basin, toilet and shower
Interaction with guests - I will always respect your peace and quiet, however if you are up for a chat I am happy for you to join me in the sitting room. If you'd rather not socialise that's completely fine too. I will give you as much space and privacy as you need. Guests are very welcome to use the garden on fine Edinburgh days, or evenings.
I may be out working some of the time but will also spend time in the house.
The Neighbourhood - Merchiston is a very upmarket area of Edinburgh and minutes away from fashionable Bruntsfield, with niche shopping, cafe culture and lovely bars and restaurants. One of Edinburgh's most famous green spaces, The Meadows, is 5 minutes walk from the house. Edinburgh City Centre and the main tourist attractions are all within a short bus journey or a 20-30 minute walk away.
Guests are assured of private access to the available bedrooms and shower-room. You will not be sharing with other guests.

The house which is actually really old, having been built in the 19th century, has been renovated by Lesley who made it a stunning place by perfectly combining modern interior design with the old elements. The central but very quiet position just makes it an amazing place to stay, after having stayed at her place you'll probably really thing about what it would be like moving to place like hers. To all the the guests considering to stay at her house, don't doubt, you will love it!

A very charming host, always a lovely smile on her face, extremely helpful not only giving us information about which places to visit but also waiting for us as we were arriving late and giving us the opportunity to store our luggage at the day of our departure. We soon felt like we were visiting friends. Thanks a lot, Lesley! Hope to see you again!
