Our home is a 5000sq ft (450m2) converted warehouse behind the trendy Shore area of Leith in Edinburgh. You get the whole main living space with massive bedroom, bathroom, 60ft living room and roof garden! Apparently the pictures don't do it justice (check the reviews)!
It doesn't get bigger! This original granary warehouse is mainly open plan. We welcome guests visiting the City and also photoshoots, filming and workshops. I'm afraid that we don't allow large, late parties but worth asking us your requirements. We have hosted corporate gigs, shoots for adverts & videos, wedding receptions and more. It's a hugely relaxing, huge, happy and quiet space within easy distance of the city centre.
You will have access to your own vast living space including two sitting areas, dining space, kitchen, master bedroom and bathroom. Accessed via your own door and lift.
Общение с гостями
We have a self-contained cottage area upstairs with our own access to leave you alone. If you want us to host you in our house then we are delighted to cook for you, show you around the area or help out. If you want us to hide away and leave you to it then you won't hear from us! We are social, happy people and use airbnb as a way to keep this amazing property at its peak. If you stay for two nights or more we may ask that we pop into the main part of the house during the day to do boring household chores / check email etc. If you want to stay two days or more we also ask that you allow the cats down to visit from time to time!
Другие важные подробности
We are around to help out if you want us. If you would rather have peace then we will discreetly disappear. Please note that we do not discount the property at any time as the house is already competitively priced. Well done for trying but it will be politely declined!
Nb. Our two cats Merlin and Gandalf normally inhabit the whole of our house including the part we rent. We are happy to keep them away for your stay if you have allergies for a maximum of two nights but however good our cleaners are we can't guarantee zero cat!
CCTV for your security and ours is permanently on in the communal hallways of the property (two by the lift and one in the stairwell). For events involving four or more persons in the the property we reserve the right to activate a living-space camera to protect our wooden floors from damage. This is located above the wine rack. All of this is easily explained in person prior to booking or during your welcome to the property. The system uses NEST devices. Please note that during activation of the smoke detectors all cameras automatically turn on and the boiler is shut-off
We kindly ask our guests not to wear high heels inside the property as they damage our soft wood floors. There is also strictly no smoking or candles as there is an awful lot of wood.
We do SOMETIMES allow events but these must be agreed beforehand and come with additional rules. Please contact us if you want to host others at the property.
For stays of two days or greater we ask that our lovely bengal cats Merlin and Gandalf are able to use the space too. For short stays they are fine in the private half of the house.
We ask that no music is played after 10pm to keep our neighbours happy.
Hi, I'm James. I live in Edinburgh with my husband Daniel in the lovely Shore area of Leith. I am an airline Captain based at Edinburgh airport but spend most of my time off exploring the world.
I'm very easy-going. All I generally need is a bed, running water, a wifi connection and some friendly people to chat to!
We, in turn, live in a really special house that we lovingly restored throughout 2013. We love sharing it with the world and meeting new people. Expect us to be open-minded, always laughing and generally keen for a glass of something!
