If you want a peaceful place to stay, and also want to sample the delights of Edinburgh, this could be the place for you.
Our home is right next to Portobello Beach, a swimming pool and gym, a wide range of bars, restaurants and shops, with good transport links to the city centre.
You’ll love our place because of the comfy four-poster bed, the amazing sea views, the quirky period features, the bright, spacious kitchen-diner, and the trampoline.
Our place is good for families and couples.
This is a large, 3-storey Georgian family home with the beach on your doorstep and yet only 10 minutes taxi from the bustle of Edinburgh.
It's full of quirky charm and has a sunny, totally enclosed and private back garden with swingball and trampoline. You fall asleep listening to the sound of the waves and wake up to a stunning sunrise over the sea.
There is a spacious kitchen/diner - perfect for family meals and lazy breakfasts. We enjoy cooking and so if you fancy staying in there is plenty of equipment ready for you. The dining area leads out to the sunny, walled back garden, which is a lovely place to sit and listen to the see with a coffee.
The imposing sitting room is full of wonderful period features such as the working shutters, and we have added a wood-burning stove to add extra cosiness on chilly days. The downstairs bathroom has a large, powerful shower, perfect for sandy feet after beach trips!
The large master bedroom is comfortable and bright, with a four poster superking-size bed. Opposite is a large bedroom with cabin bed, perfect for younger people, and an amazing sea view (if you need a lower bed, we can provide a z-bed). The third bedroom is on the third floor and as well as the single bed and double sofa bed you can find a punchbag and darts board!
Portobello is a vibrant community and there is plenty to do and see, especially on the beach where you can find sailing, kayaking, swimming and volleyball.
There are a lot of great places to shop and eat, including Earthy Organic food shop, Twelve Triangles Artisan Bakery, Bross Bagels, and an Aldi covers more basic needs. There is a local food market on the first Saturday of every month and on Saturday and Sundays you can usually find the 'Little Green Van' coffee/ street food van on the beach from 10am.
There are also plenty of good places to eat, including Thai, Spanish and French/scottish offerings.
The whole house is available for you to use, barring the study, the box room and the garage.

Please do text if there are any problems, as there are people around who we can ask to help.
Другие важные подробности
Please don't arrive before 4pm to give the cleaner enough time to finish. Please can you leave before 10am for the same reason. Thank you.
One of the bedrooms is a cabin bed, which is only suitable for people aged 6+. If this is a problem, there is a trundle bed under the single bed in the attic room, which can be used instead (although this means sharing a room).
Bella, our lovely grey cat, will be there. She will come and go, so please keep her cat flap unobstructed, and we ask that you top up her food and water if the bowls are empty.
One of the rooms is an attic conversion, and so is on a different level to the other rooms.
We have fish - but they don't really need to be fed, just enjoyed!
- You must be happy to share the space with Bella the cat.
- Smoking is only allowed in the garden. Thank you
