Interaction with guests

I am happy to just give you a key to get on with it as there are lots of local food shops, a carry out and cafe closeby. I live in the floor above so if you need me just knock on my door! I can do a machine clothes wash & provide a clothes drying rack for £5. Happy to let you pick my brains about Edinburgh and I enjoy a good blether if you're up for it.
Also note I trust my guests to treat the property with respect but if there are breakages, could you at least leave money to cover them- most things can be replaced pretty cheaply- just discuss with me if you are unsure. Many thanks.

Colleen was very welcoming even though we arrived very late at night due to delayed flights and bus was bigger than expected and was very comfortable to stay in for the couple of days we were there. Was well equipped with microwave, jug, fridge, utensils and crockery, enough for a few people at most. Bathroom was very nice and shower was good. Bed was comfortable and there were games for children and a tv and also brochures of Scotland and some info about local eateries, buses, info about the loft...had a lovely stay. We were also quite busy so did not see Colleen a lot but she was very eager to help with anything we needed.

A good sneak peek into Edinburghs friendly neighbourhoods. Nice little loft apartment nearing completion, nice and warm, not too big a walk to bus stops. Colleen is a lovely person.

What a lovely stay! A short bus ride from the city centre, No. 10 bus goes from just around the corner and takes 10-20 mins only to the centre. Such a cosy and bright space with a supremely comfortable bed, Colleen was a lovely host (it was my daughter's birthday weekend and Colleen left a card, balloons and glowsticks for her, such a kind touch) and we would stay again in a heartbeat.

Great stay in Colleen's house. She is very kind and helpful, and the bedroom (very comfortable!) and kitchennette are as told in the advert. We will like to stay here more times :) :)

Colleen is a very attentive and friendly host. Prior to our arrival, she was always available to answer questions and provided detailed information on how to arrive at her place. The loft apartment is a nice and cozy and just a short bus ride away from the city centre.

The flat has a good and confortable space. We appreciate that the kitchen is well provided, i.e. There are esential things for making meals. Collen was always keen to help us. Although, the flat is 20 minutes far from the city center by bus, there are several and frequent bus options. Also, the taxi fare to the city center is afordable, e.g. less than 10 pounds.

Staying at Colleen's loft was great! It was clean, cozy and very central. There are several busses to the city nearby. A small grocery store is right next door. We had breakfast in the kitchenette, which is well equipped. Edinburgh is a great city and was made even greater by our nice host and her great Appartement.
