This single, cosy, attic room is well equipped, and a quiet and peaceful space to work and sleep in.
With great transport links into the centre of Edinburgh (only 20 minutes away on very frequent buses), it is perfect for the city and local beach, with Ocean Terminal shopping centre, and vibrant Leith with pubs and cafes, both within easy reach.
My place is suitable for solo adventurers, and the business traveller, and I provide a welcome to everyone.

The space

There is a table and chair, wardrobe (closet) for hanging, drawers and shelves for your belongings. The room has central heating and is very warm when needed. There is a large roof window for fresh air and light, with a black-out blind. It is on the second floor.

Guest access

Your bedroom is private. The bathroom (bath and toilet) is shared, and on the first floor. You have access to the kitchen for making tea/coffee. Biscuit tin always stocked! The shared shower is located by walking through another room next door to your room.

Interaction with guests

I live in the house and am available to answer questions, give advice on getting around Edinburgh, and places to go. I have a friendly cat.

Tamsin is a wondeful, friendly host and the room is clean, bright and warm. The house is within good walking distance of bus stops straight into central Edinburgh. A really great airbnb.

Tamsin is so friendly and nice! She bought a brand new hair dryer for me to use because I asked whether she can prove it (that you so much Tamsin!). Communication was smooth, place was exactly as described (very clean and bright). Room was cozy and warm, from the living room you get to enjoy the beautiful sea view. Tamsin's cat is adorable, she's friendly and not afraid of strangers.6 mins walk to the bus stop to catch the bus to airport or to the city center, 12 mins walk will take you to the big supermarket (Lidl). I had a wonderful stay at Tamsin and will recommend everyone to stay at her place :)

Tamsin is a very nice lady. She is a chinese acupuncture teacher and I happenly came from China.We have nice talk. She was kind enough to remand a restauront when I was cold and hungry outside that night and she provided me a nice breakfast next morning. I will remember her generous help forever. The room in her house is nity ,cosy and warm. The house is at the seaside and you can see the beautiful sunrise and seals if you are lucky enough. I would like to stay in her house again if I have another chance to come to Edinburgh.

My time with Tamsin has been great. I was coming in as a Edinburgh-newby, trying to arrange everything for a longer stay here and she has been extremely helpful and kind. This was particularly appreciated because I didn't know anybody here. Her house was clean and has a great location with an ocean view and great connectivity to the city centre. I would recommend it to anyone, whether it is to set-up things for a longer stay, as I was, or just for a holliday. You will have an extremely pleasant stay

Tamsin was a lovely host, very welcoming and helpful. She listens to your needs or questions and answers them adequatly. Gifted with a great view over the water, the place is very neat and is occupied, mostly by lots of books. Would recommend !
