Nuestra casa

Descripción de la casa que ofrecemos en intercambio

We have recently renovated our kitchen and sitting room into a large open plan family room housing a lovely big dining kitchen with a table for 8. This family room has a wonderful wood burning stove which rotates 360° and has two sets of bifold doors opening out to the garden, a decked patio area and an in ground trampoline. We also have a second sitting room if we need quiet time. Hundreds of books, Televisions, Tivo box, a PS3.

There is a newly renovated Jack and Jill style en suite accessed from the master bedroom as well as the hall. We have another bathroom upstairs. The en suite&upstairs bathrooms have showers also.

We have a lovely garden, patio area hosting a Barbecue and an sunken in ground trampoline which is fab in the nice weather &can also be great in winter if you wrap up warm!! It is Scotland after all.

Our home has four double bedrooms. Our second sitting room with a very comfortable double sofa bed if ye need more space. So the house could really host up to 10 people depending on whether you have babies/children/ people willing to share double beds etc...We have WIFI & a piano too.

Barrio

Descripción de nuestro barrio y la zona en que se encuentra

We live in the Shandon area, which is close to central Edinburgh. Our community has lots of green space in playparks and our street is right beside the lovely Union Canal which houses houseboats, a cafe and further down the canal has a host of bars and restaurants. The area has the cosy feel of a village and is a very friendly community with lots of local amenities from local shops, cafe, bars, restaurants to bigger supermarkets still within walking distance. We are about 2 mins walk to a bus stop which brings you direct to the city centre in about 10-15 mins or you can get to Princes St down the quiet relaxing Union canal path in roughly half an hour. Edinburgh is famous for its historic old town and castle and the Festival and Fringe which last throughout August and when it is extremely difficult to find accomodation. We'd pick this time to travel leaving a great time for others to visit.

We have extremely friendly neighbours also which is a bonus when you are new to an area

Dónde ir y qué hacer mientras se esté en nuestra casa

Shandon is a vibrant place with local shops, cafe, hairdressing salons and some very good pubs. We are only a short walk away from the Fountainpark area which has a great multiplex IMAX cinema as well as Ten pin bowling, casino, gym etc...and some fantastic pubs and restaurants if you wanted to stay more locally. But we are also a 2 minute walk from many direct buses which take you into the city in 15minutes. Shandon is also equidistant to both Gorgie which has many local shops and supermarkets and also the lovely Bruntsfield and Morningside which have lovely boutiques, cafes and bars. We have the best of both worlds we think. Edinburgh has also been voted the 4th best city in the world recently so come and swap with us.
