Hello, double room, with excellent storage space, overlooking gardens, for rent in friendly, happy house.

The house has a fresh feeling is snug and cosy, with a sun room. Bedrooms are white and South facing, downstairs the kitchen is cosy and red with a bright stripy floor, it's open plan to a calm living room area. There's a sunroom and little wild garden full of birds, and filled with sun shine, on sunny days.

There is free parking and the house is located in a calm friendly courtyard, where neighbours greet each other. It's away from the road, so no rush of traffic outside. The beach is 2 mins walk from front door. There is room for bike storage or other kit.

The kitchen is well stocked with pot and pans etc. The washing machine and fridgefreezer are large. There is no microwave and also no TV in the living room, it's not really a TV focussed house. There are two loos and one additional shared bathroom, with good electric shower and a bath.

The beach is 2 mins walk one direction, the bus into centre of Edinburgh 2 mins walk the other direction. There are loads of buses and it takes 15 - 20 mins to get to the very centre of town. The busses go to all parts of Edinburgh.

All bills are included in rent, that means ALL bills and includes cleaning products/materials and loo roll (I buy bulk so that I can buy eco friendly and there is not the bore of running out of loo roll or kitchen towel etc).

Portobello is a lovely place, obviously like everywhere at the moment it is pretty at a stand still, but 'normally' it has a great swimming pool and gym 6 mins walk away from the house, loads of cafes, pubs, restaurants, independent shops, Co-op super market.

Also normally there are lots of community things going on: a farmers market, all sorts of musical groups and sports/yoga/rowing/wild swimming groups/folks kitesurfing, spiritual things and artistic things. People are friendly and relaxed and smiley.

As for me... well things are a bit disrupted right now, but I work running my own business leading movement/dance, cook for retreats and small festivals. I have lived in many countries and done all sorts of things, both conventional and unconventional. I am practical, happy, friendly and busy with my life, which I really enjoy. I have shared flats and houses for many years and I enjoy sharing with folks. I speak English, French, German and have Portuguese lurking around in the back of my head, from years ago, so happy to live with people speaking other languages.

The other person who shares the house 'normally' works a wilderness guide in Antartica and Canada. Currently they are working with the Energy Saving Trust. So working from home and at times in the office.

If all of this sounds like the kind of place that you would like to call home come and have a hello and a look round.

Cheers, Aileen
