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

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!
During my vacation in Scotland I stayed here for 8 nights. It was my second visit at Juliet and Ian and not my last. Juliet and Ian were very friendly and helpful. I have enjoyed my stay with them and I hope we see us again soon. By the bus are only 15 minutes up to the town. My recommendation is one visit to cramond beach, it is a lovely palce. Greetings to my friend Thistle (dog).
All was wonderful... thank you very much.

For a travelling granny who fetched up in a strange city, arriving at Juliet's home was marvellous. Warmth, interest and plenty of information was always available. I was welcomed into the heart of the family - the kitchen - and felt quite at home.
Thank you Juliet and Ian for a very successful few nights stay with you both.
A very pleasant and attentive family to enjoy the city. Very clean room and bathroom.
What I like is to live with a Scottish family being tourists, (when you are a tourist usually do not have that opportunity)
Very nice breakfast in the kitchen watching the garden.
Una familia muy agradable y atentos para que disfrutemos de la ciudad. La habitación y baño muy limpios.
Lo que mas me gusto es poder vivir con una familia escocesa siendo turistas, (cuando eres turista normalmente no tienes esta oportunidad)
Muy agradable el desayuno en la cocina viendo el jardín.
I felt at Juliet and your family well. The room was nicely decorated. The Public Transport sehr gut. Thanks for the fantastic and helpful information. I was for 10 days in Edinburgh. I am happy to be back. Thanks for the nice time.
Ich fühlte mich bei Juliet und Ihrer Familie sehr wohl. Das Zimmer war hübsch eingerichtet. Die Verkehrsanbindung sehr gut. Danke für die fantastischen und hilfreichen Informationen. Ich war für 10 Tage in Edinburgh. Gerne komme ich wieder. Danke für die schöne Zeit.
Juliet´s and Iain´s home was pleasure to stay at, with a very nice and comfortable room, their house very close to an excellent bus route. Juliet and Iain were wonderful hosts, very nice, always ready to help and a pleasure to be around. I would recommend their house to anyone wanting to spend some time in beautiful Edinburgh.
Pleasant room with separate entrance. Juliet and her family were welcoming. Excellent discussions and advice for the rest of my trip.
Plaisante chambre avec entrée séparée. Juliet et sa famille furent accueillants. Excellentes discussions et conseils pour la suite de mon voyage.
