Our home

Our family home is light, spacious and is situated in a leafy suburb of Edinburgh. Our house has 3 bedrooms - 2 downstairs (the master bedroom with en-suite and a children's room with bunk beds) and 1 upstairs bedroom (single or double bed plus futon). We have a large open plan living, kitchen and dining area with all the necessary mod-cons and appliances. Our home also has a main family shower room (wet room) and utility room on the ground floor as well as an upstairs bathroom. The house has underfloor heating in all the open plan spaces and central heating throughout.

We have a large garden to the rear with a patio area for dining and relaxing. There is a BBQ and chimnea available to use. There is a large children's playhouse/den, swing, trampoline, basketball nets and lots of other outdoor equipment for both children and grown ups. Our home has everything required for a family with children - plenty outdoor and indoor toys and games.

Who we are

  1. We are Bobby and Heather, a married couple with two boys - Finlay (10 yo) and Aaron (8 yo). We are both professionals (Bobby, a solicitor, Heather, a biomedical scientist) who enjoy travelling and spending time as a family. We have never done a house swap before and are keen to see a new country as a resident rather than tourists. We are happy to exchange as much information as necessary to make your stay in Edinburgh very enjoyable and memorable, and would appreciate the same in return.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our home is located in a quiet residential area ~3 miles from the city centre. The bus route to town is right on the doorstep and there are local shops, amenities and parks 5-10 minutes walk away (Morningside). Edinburgh is a relatively small city but it is full of open space and parks. There are countless numbers of galleries/shops/museums. The scottish highlands with its beautiful scenery is within easy reach as are major scottish cities of St Andrews (1 hr), Glasgow (40 mins), Perth (1 hr), Aberdeen (2h 30 min) and Inverness (2h 30mins). Scotland is the home of golf and there are numerous golf courses very close by. We have golf clubs for adults and children to use. There are a variety of childrens activities close by including soft-play centres, adventure parks, zoo, sealife centre, country farms and even a city farm.
