We look forward to seeing you again, too! Welcome any time.
There was something magical about spending a few nights in the childhood home of Robert Louis Stevenson. The owners who live there now offer two rooms for lodgers, a large master bedroom with a charming Victorian-era bathroom (just a tub, no shower) and another room...More
We have just returned from our second visit at the Stevenson House. It was just as delightful as our previous visit. I can't recommend it highly enough! The host and location are fantastic. You will not be disappointed.
Unfortunately didn't like this place as much as we had hoped. The people were nice but the place was musty, stuffy, and cluttered. Our bedroom door would not lock. There was a bathtub but no shower. The place was also expensive for what it was....More

Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
