    Good Host

 Min stay requested: 1 month or more

  • Description


    Please no couples or families. Only want someone staying for three months or more.

    Family of two boys living close to edinburgh. Living in a newly built property that needs lots more plants in the garden and a fence. Also have rental property which needs some organisation and help with childcare after school.

    There is a bus within walking distance from the house, to Edinburgh which takes about one hour, or a train about 2 miles away, ( I am happy to drive you to the train station). The train takes 30mins to Edinburgh city centre.

    I would like someone who are least two month so my boys are not subjected to do many changes and to get time to know our visitor. I am happy to take two, an individual but not couples or families.

    I am happy for you to go to college or work whilst the boys at school from 9 to 3 and there is a local cafe.

    We live next to the beach and close to Edinburgh so there is plenty to do and see during your time off. I believe it is the most beautiful area of Scotland.
