WE ALREADY HAVE EXCHANGES FOR SUMMER 2018
Our flat is a "double upper" flat, which means that we have the top floor flat, with a Victorian bay window and high-ceilinged rooms, but also the attic-level space under the roof, where there are three further bedrooms (which makes five bedrooms in total) and a play room. From the living room, there is a view over playing fields and a children's playground towards the North, the Pentland hills towards the south (frequently with snow in winter) and the sunset in the west. The flat has many original features, such as wooden floors, fireplaces (not in use) and cornicing, but also a modern kitchen and bathroom with all modern amenities.
Our flat is on the border between the historical Grange and Morningside areas of Edinburgh, about a 15 minute walk from the Meadows Park at the south of the city centre. Our home is in a very green area, with mature gardens, playing fields and a children's playground near the flat. Boutique-style shops can be found on Morningside Road (at the end of our street) and a Marks & Spencer's and a large Waitrose supermarket are located there as well. A choice of buses can take you to the centre of Edinburgh from there, if you prefer to take the bus.
The centre of Edinburgh has UNESCO World Heritage status. Medieval old town with the little closes and hidden underground vaults are perfect for a ghost tour, while elegant Georgian new town is best for shopping and afternoon tea.
The royal mile leads from the Castle, perched high above the city, to the Queen's Holyrood palace and the Scottish parliament building. Here you have access to Holyrood Park and Arthur's seat, the volcanic hill/mountain in the centre of Edinburgh, from which you have a beautiful view over the city towards the sea, Fyfe and Pentland hills.
Edinburgh also has a zoo, with its famous penguins, panda bears and chimpanzees, and a beach with promenade. Boat trips can be taken onto the Firth of Forth (the estuary of the river Forth), where you can see seals and a historic abbey on a little island.
St Andrews (the home of Golf), Glasgow, Stirling ('Braveheart', gateway to the Highlands), lochs and castles are worth visiting.
We are a family with two young children. Originally we (Chris and Martine) are from England and Holland, but we have settled in Edinburgh and love it here! We love to climb Arthur's Seat, visit the National Museum (great for kids), play in the Meadows park, explore castles in the area or visit the beach. In the summer we love to explore other places in Europe and beyond. Our children were born here, so they can call themselves Scottish.
We had a great time in the flat of Martine and Chris and spent there 13 relaxed days. Their home is providing every comfort you may need. The flat is perfectly connected to the public transport to explore Edinburgh without using a car. We really enjoyed the festival season (in particular the Tattoo Festival) in Edinburgh. There is lots to do in and around Edinburgh (Castle, Old Town, Royal Mile, Holyrood Palace, Calton Hill, Arthurs Seat, Zoo, various museums etc.). There are also good train connections from Waverly Station to other parts of Scotland. We went to North Berwick and continued our vacation in Scotland to the Isle of Mull and Iona via Glasgow.
Overall, we highly recommend an exchange with Martine and Chris as their home is very comfortable and provides every comfort to relax.
Thanks again for the opportunity to stay at your home!
