Reviews of this property
We had a marvelous time in Edinburgh and Juliet's and Iain's house is the perfect place to stay. Thank you so much for letting us stay at your place and for all the arrangements you've made for us. People, if you want to feel at home in Edinburgh, stay with the Pound family!

I prefer staying at Juliets and her families house in Edinburgh when i would be in Scottland. I really enjoyed to be at your house, i could relax and be outside, close to a walk at the sea, meanwhile passing a golf course, not far away. As well one can easyly take the bus to town or even walk there.
Everything you need is just around the corner. Theres a beautiful garden as well, i was barfoot stepping through ^^.
Juliet is a very kind and reliable person, for she was not there at that time, her friend Linda was taking care to show me everything. Also a very nice person, i enjoyed very much to talk to you, Linda, maybe next year again :-)...All the best to you all. Monique

Wir, meine Frau und eine Freundin von uns, waren für 2 Übernachtungen bei Juliet in Edinburgh. Die Unterkunft ist perfekt für einen Besuch in dieser fantastischen Metropole. Mit dem Bus ist man in 10 Minuten in der Innenstadt, die Haltestelle ist direkt um die Ecke. (Eine Fahrt kostet 1,60) . Das eigene Auto kann man in der Einfahrt vor dem Haus kostenlos parken, klasse. Direkt von Beginn an wurden wir herzlich aufgenommen. Juliet stand uns mit Rat und Tat zur Seite, und auch spezielle Wünsche, z.B. beim Essen, wurden erfüllt. Die Familie ist sehr nett und wir haben uns als Teil der Gemeinschaft gefühlt. Die Zimmer sind sauber und die Betten bequem, alles so wie es sein soll. Excellent !!
Staying at Juliet´s and Iain´s home was a pleasure. Rooms and location are perfect - everything we needed for a weekend in Edinburgh. Taking the bus is very easy and comfortable and with the house being near the sea, we even had a beautiful walk there one evening. Also pubs around are good and if you forgot something, like we did, Tesco is next door. We would recommend their house to anyone wanting to spend some time in beautiful Edinburgh.
Home from home, very friendly hosts, had good chats about anything and everything, pleasant area with coast or walks close by and pleasant walk into city or Murray field, tea or coffee making facilities in room or hallway would have been nice as not to disturb hosts when you've been out all day or first thing in the morning
Juliet und Ihre Wohnung sind sehr schön, sauber und ruhig.
Wir haben es sehr genossen mit unseren Gastgebern auch mal zu frühstücken.
Alles völlig unkompliziert.
Der Bus ist um die Ecke.
Immer wieder gerne.
Wir waren nur für einen Tag bei Juliet. Das Zimmer war einfach und klein, aber trotzdem gemütlich und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Für zwei Personen für einige Tage eine ausreichende Größe.
Juliet ist eine nette Gastgeberin, bei der man sich auf Anhieb wohl fühlt. Ihr Hund ist ein echter Herzensbrecher, dessen Aufforderung zum Spielen man sich kaum entziehen kann. Frühstück mit großer Cerialienauswahl in der großen Wohnküche (gemütlich!). Für die Fahrt zur City braucht man mit Bus,der aureichend häufig fährt ca. 30 Minuten. Wer sich nicht daran stört, sich das Bad (klein und nett) mit einem weiteren Mieter zu teilen findet bei Juliet eine empflehlenswerte Unterkunft.
Juliet hat uns ganz herzlich begrüßt. Die Unterkunft war genau, wie beschrieben.
Es war schön, dort zu übernachten.
I had to go to Edinburgh at short notice, arriving on a (very!) late flight and was looking for somewhere to stay relatively close to the airport and on a bus route in to town for the next day. Juliet's place was a great find and communication with her via the Wimdu site/mail was really easy. She responded very quickly to my questions.
Unfortunately my flight was delayed and it was after 1 a.m. before I got to the house but Juliet stayed up to let me in and show me the room. It was great to see her waving out of the window when I got out of the taxi and knowing I didn't need to ring the bell or call her and waken the whole household! At that time of night/morning I paid GBP 16 (including small tip) for a taxi from the airport to the house - about a 15 minute journey.
Breakfast the next morning was very much to my taste and the time I showed up to have it was totally up to me which was great. I slept well. The rooms are to the back of the house and there is no street noise. I was also lucky that there was no-one in the other room so no noise from there and I had the bathroom to myself.
The second morning I had to leave quite early to get to the airport. I opted to take the 41 bus in to town and then change to the tram on Princes Street. This worked well and the totally journey quite early on a Saturday morning took just under an hour and cost GBP 1.60 for the bus plus GBP 5.50 for the tram. Make sure you have plenty of coins for public transport!! Even the super new tram ticket machines do not take notes - only coins or credit cards. Juliet recommended changing notes in the branch of Tesco right next to the house. This worked well. The guy even asked if I was changing for bus fares and gave me exactly the coins I needed!
It is definitely worth the short walk from the house to Lauriston Castle. The grounds are free of charge (open until 8 p.m. - at least in June) and the view of the Firth is really lovely.
In summary: great location with good infrastructure round about, quiet room, friendly/accommodating hostess, Definitely to be recommended! Thanks, Juliet!
Wir haben zu dritt zwei Nächte bei Juliet und Ihrer Familie verbracht.
Obwohl wir spät angekommen sind, wurden wir herzlich von ihr empfangen. Die Zimmer sind sehr gemütlich und das Frühstück lecker. Juliet hat uns mit guten Tipps versorgt und wir haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen. Wir empfehlen Juliets Unterkunft auf jeden Fall weiter.
