About our home

We are a family with 2 lovely (house trained!) girls, looking for homes to exchange during the school holidays (Easter, July/August, October hols and Xmas). We have now completed a number of home swaps, both direct and points and are very respectful of other people's homes.

The house...
Our home is a 1930s semi detached house, recently extended and modernised, situated a couple of miles from the city centre in the quiet residential area of Willowbrae. There is ample living space which is suitable for individual travellers, a couple or a young family. We have all the usual facilities you would expect in a modern home, and can adapt the house according to guests - we have toys for children ages 3+ but these can equally be stored away if not required. Our house provides a homely, clean and comfortable base for a great holiday in Edinburgh and the surrounding area.

We are perfectly situated for accessing all city centre attractions, and have the added bonus of Arthur's seat and Holyrood Park on our doorstep. For those who want to escape the city Portobello beach is close by, and we are also on the main bus route for the beautiful beaches of East Lothian. With a bus stop only a 5 minute walk away from our house everywhere you could want to go is within convenient easy reach, with a regular reliable bus service. No car required! Bikes are also available if you are feeling energetic!

Other things to note:
This is our family home and we'd appreciate if you treat it with the same care that we do. We are a non-smoking, shoes off house!

If you plan on bringing additional guests then please let us know first.

Please contact us if you have any questions.
