Our home

This is a second-home.

Our 4-bedroom house in Edinburgh is located just 10 minutes from the city centre and within walking distance of Portobello beach. On an excellent bus route to all area's of the city and with ample free parking directly outside.

This is a spacious and impeccably furnished property which affords comfort and luxury for those seeking a break in the beautiful city of Edinburgh.

On the ground-floor we have a large spacious lounge with feature fire-place, flat-screen television and huge leather chesterfield sofa's. This room affords views over the rear patio garden and the park which lies beyond.

Other communal rooms include a fully fitted kitchen with integrated appliances (including dish-washer, washing machine and fridge-freezer), microwave, gas hob and electric oven. Dining-room with extending table to seat eight people, and sunny conservatory which looks out to the rear patio garden (where you will find a gazebo, gas BBQ, chimney, swing-ball etc.)

The master bedroom has an Emperor Bed (7 foot wide), 48 inch flat-screen television, ample storage and bay window overlooking the gardens. This is located on the ground floor.

Also on the ground floor, is a twin bedded room with beautiful bay window, feature fire-place and television.

The bathroom (also located on the ground floor) has tub and seperate walk-in shower unit with grab rail. Shower seat (for those with limited mobility) available upon request.

Who we are

  1. Hi there, my name is Amanda and I am an Emergency Trauma Counsellor, Mental Health Manager and Therapist. Whilst completely devoted to my work, it would be fair to say that it's quite a stressful occupation ~ and I like to travel as a means of restoring the work/life balance!

    My husband Davie and I schedule 01 November ~ 20 February each year for 'down-time' which means that we're open to longer-term exchanges. Over the past three years we've travelled through Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore and Dubai. We have previously stayed in hotels so embarking upon a home exchange is a new (and exciting) experience for us.

    Our 'dream' destination would be somewhere warm with a private pool. Although we would prefer to be outside Europe, we are open to all suggestions and will answer all emails sent to us ~ promptly.

    We are a mature couple (I being nearer 50 than I would like, and Davie being 10 years older). We would treat your property with care and respect and are happy to water plants or feed pets if required. That said, we can't really envisage ourselves on a farm or in a zoo ... so there are limits :)

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our home is located in the desirable residential area of Duddingston, which is just ten minutes from all the hustle and bustle of Edinburgh City Centre and also within walking distance of the sea-side town of Portobello. Our unique location affords you the best of both worlds, a city break and sea-side holiday all rolled into one!

We have a 24-hour Asda-Walmart Hyper-Market located just 5 minutes away and a large retail shopping complex which is about the same distance. There are of course local shops in the immediate area.

Portobello has long sandy beaches, promenade, independent local shops, restaurants, bars, a fitness centre, swimming pool, Turkish baths and steam rooms. There are also two very good golf courses nearby.

Also within walking distance is the famous Holyrood Park where you climb Arthur's Seat (an old volcanic rock) for spectacular sky-line views of the entire city, sit by the lake and feed the swans, or visit Holyrood Palace and maybe catch a glimpse of our Royal family!

Venturing into Edinburgh City Centre is easy as we are on a very good (regular and reliable) bus route ~ journey time about 10 - 20 minutes (depending on traffic and time of day). If going in by car, then you can drive through Holyrood Park which cuts the journey time in half.
