Nice large room with double-glazing, in a peaceful area. The room is at the back of the building, so you don't hear traffic noise, only birds. Nice and light, too.

If you see us, say hello! We're on different schedules, but most of us are in in the evenings (1F, 2M). We are two academics (specialising in art history, visual culture, film making, film studies) and one writer (mediaeval history, film studies). Two of us also make films. We have an eclectic DVD collection:-)

Friendly warm welcome, excellent communication before my arrival and a spacious room which feels even bigger than the photo. Bed was very comfy and a good location.

Great flat, nice people, excellent location. Sean provided me with very detailed instructions for getting to the flat and I felt at home quickly. Marchmont is a lovely area right next to the Meadows and a short walk from old town. The room is spacious, the bed is comfortable and there is a desk for your laptop, writing, etc. There are no window blinds in the room and the birds (seagulls, pigeons) can be loud in the morning so you might want to bring your sleep mask and ear plugs. Apart from the birds, it's very peaceful and quiet. I stayed at Sean's place for four weeks in July-August so I can't really say much about the heating. At times you might be living with five other people in the flat (a very big flat) which of course has its pros and cons. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed and everybody respects other people's privacy but you might sometimes have to wait for your turn to take a shower. I enjoyed my stay at Sean's place and in Edinburgh a lot and I hope to go back at some point. Thank you very much!

Sean was very helpful and responded quickly, patiently and benevolently to all of my questions and requested modest changes concerning my booking. He also offered a comprehensive description of how to get to the flat that covered really every option you can think of. I felt highly supported; thx Sean! When I got to the flat, somebody was there to show me around and to explain some basic rules. The room was comparatively dirty/dusty on my arrival so I needed - like Stéphanie who mentioned the same in her feedback – to clean the room on my arrival myself. However, the room is big, the bed comfortable, and the location of the flat is very good – basically, you can reach everything you want just by feet. By the way, I really recommend visiting the Blackford Hill that is just a few minutes away. You will be rewarded with an amazing view over Edinburgh. You will share the flat with Sean, Louise and Pasquale who are great and if you need something just ask one or two times, everybody will be easily approachable and they will try to help you out.

I stayed with Sean, Louise and Pasquale for nearly three months while doing research at the Uni of Edinburgh, so my experience is not the typical Airbnb situation. Sean was home upon my arrival at the agreed time. The room is very big and the bed is super comfortable. There is a lot of shelf space and a big working desk, which proved useful. However, there is no closet where you can hang your clothes, and the room was quite dusty when I arrived, so I had to clean up before undoing my suitcase. The flat is in a great neighbourhood, located minutes to Old Town and across from the Meadows, the most beautiful park of the city. It is in one of the historic parts of Edinburgh, and the building is quite a few decades old - it is very charming but don't expect modern luxuries. There is also another room for rent in the flat, a fact of which I was not aware before arriving. Everyone is usually very quiet, but the presence of up to 6 people in the house can sometimes become problematic - for shower purposes (of which there is only one in the house) and for the use of the kitchen. The three permanent tenants were helpful and gave me some great tips on Edinburgh and the surroundings. The general feel of the household was "live and let live". Communication was easy and straight-forward, and everyone partook in the chores and the refurbishing of the shared milk, butter, toilet paper, etc. There is also an impressive collection of books and movies in the house, and everyone shared a keen interest in arts and culture, which I really appreciated. Overall, I enjoyed my stay here and would stay again if I were to return to Edinburgh.

Spent a month here and was very happy with both the place and Sean. The room is big, with a large bed and a large work desk, so space is definitely not a problem. Everyone in the flat was very willing to help out with any questions or concerns I had and made you feel at home.

Nutzerprofil von Sean

Edinburgh (Scotland)-based writer and filmmaker. Currently doing a PhD by practice in filmmaking, in addition to running a production company (documentaries) and a small publishing house. Wearing my writer's hat, I've written mainly non-fiction to date, covering such topics as the Knights Templar, the Cathars, Gnosticism and alchemy. Also a book on the Russian filmmaker Andreï Tarkovsky.

My preferred places to stay are quiet, out of the way places with lots of a character in which to write, or to explore the locality. Museums, art galleries and second-hand bookshops are always high on my list of places to go. As are places to swim.
