We'd just like to be absolutely clear with guests before they book that this is our home and we share our living space.

Reviews of this property
Jane and Tom were great hosts. Their nice house is close to bus 30 who takes you right to the center of Edinburgh. We had 2 own rooms and own bathroom. Jane had a great breakfast ready for us each morning.
I found it very nice to talk to both of them each morning. This was very nice so we met "locals", get their advise on nice spots in town and Scotland, but also simply for some nice talks.
They are also artists, compose their own music, check Tom Fairnie singer/ songwriter. Thanks very much Jane and Tom for your hospitality!
Wir hatten 3 Tage einen wundervollen Aufenthalt bei Jane und Toni. Beide sind wirklich super nett , sehr offen und lebenslustig . Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt obwohl unser englisch so viele Löcher hat wie ein Schweizer Käse hatten Sie viel Geduld mit uns. Die liebevolle Wohnung liegt am Stadtrand mit guter Anbindung an das City Center entweder mit Bus oder mit Rad, welche wir dabei hatten. Wir würden gern dort wieder übernachten....ein Geheimtipp. Nochmals vielen vielen Dank für die gute Zeit mit Euch. Herzlichst Angela Klaus und Alexander
The house is suited to discover the town. It was a luck to meet Jane and Tom. They are very helpfully. The host are very kind people and it was nice to talk or sing with them. It was a very comfortable stay.
Jane e Tom sono due persone estremamente gentili e disponibili e la loro casa è accogliente e sempre ordinata. È stata una bella esperienza poter parlare con loro ogni mattina e saremo felici di ritornare qualora ci ritrovassimo nuovamente ad Edimburgo!
La camera è spaziosa e il bagno impeccabile, cosí come la colazione servita! L'abitazione è facilmente raggiungibile anche per chi non possiede la macchina (in una ventina di minuti di autobus si arriva in centro senza problemi)
Straconsigliato a persone di tutte le etá!!
Excellent accueil, Jane et son mari sont charmants, malgré notre anglais hésitant ils ont pris le temps de partager le breakfast avec nous. Les chambres set salle de bain sont très confortables. Ma famille a apprécié les moments d'échange lors de notre séjour.
Ich habe bereits geschrieben, keine ahnung wo es hin ist.....also noch mal sehr liebe herzliche gastgeber, sehr gepflegtes wohnambiente und eine tolle bewirtung,immer wieder nochmal dort!
We stayed here for 3 nights during visiting Edinburgh. Jane and Tom are fantastic host. The location is very close to the busstation into town. Very clean and spotless rooms. The breakfast was rich with choice of nearly everything. We enjoyed their home and the conversations in the evening with a good wine and whisky. We always would recommend the host and if we come back to Edinburgh will be booking again their home. Thanks Jane and Tom. See you again, Hartmut and Claudia
We will never forget our visit to Edinburgh. Jane and Tom did their utmost to make our visit unforgettable. With their tips & tricks we visited the best parts (Stirling, the Kelpies, the National Gallery.....) off Edinburgh and surroundings. The rooms were impeccable and breakfast outstanding. Jane and Tom play in a band and we were lucky enough to hear them sing and play! Listen on tuesday from 21.00-23.00 (UK time) to My little Radio Show. www.radiosaltire.org
Really nice rooms, separate bathroom, the house is located in the east of Edinburgh in a quiet street with good bus connection to the city center / airport. Just 500m away is a shopping center with many Restaurants and Shops. You will find everything you need.
We got great breakfast and spend time with Jane and Tom. It was very familiar! We got a Key to come and go like we want, uncomplicated. It was a really good holiday in Scotland.We will come back! :-D Thanks for everything.
now it has passed a very long time but we are not good to do reviews.
we do it willingly to Jane because we met a couple pleasant; only their company is worth the trip. Excellent accommodation and beautiful house, not near the center of Edinburgh and the airport, but our experience was excellent.
ormai è passato moltissimo tempo ma non siamo bravi a fare recensioni.
la facciamo volentieri a Jane perchè abbiamo incontrato una coppia piacevolissima; solo la loro compagnia vale il viaggio. Ottima accoglienza e bella casa, non vicinissima al centro di Edimburgo e all'aereoporto, ma la nostra esperienza era stata ottima.
