Welcome to our lovely flat in the West End. We live in a traditional Glasgow tenement flat on a quiet residential street with beautiful shared gardens nearby. Convenient for West End attractions (Kelvingrove Park and Museum, University, Botanic Gardens, cafes/restaurants etc).
10-15 minutes walk to University and Byers Road shops/cafes/bars, 20-30 minutes walk to city centre. 3 minutes walk to frequent bus service to centre. Free on-street parking outside the flat.
This is our home - we have been living here for the past 4 years and it is filled with all our things making it homely and inviting. It's a really spacious 2nd floor flat, with a big kitchen/diner and a large living space with traditional bay windows. Our bedroom is light and airy with a big (140x200cm), comfortable double bed. The bathroom is bright with a good powerful shower. There is a bright and spacious kitchen with dining table and fridge, freezer, gas hob, electric oven, microwave and washing machine (no dishwasher!). Because we still live here some of the time there are loads of utensils and things to cook with in the kitchen and we'll make sure there's always some shampoo, things to read, and milk in the fridge!
We now also have a sofa bed in the lounge for extra guests or if you'd rather not share a bedroom! It's perfect for one and cosy but comfortable for two (113x170cm). Please let us know before arrival if you plan to use it so we can leave out bedding (we have a duvet, pillows and sheets for you to use).
We now have a 32" LCD TV in the lounge for guests to use.
When you are staying here you will have exclusive use of the whole flat and we want you to feel at home and treat our flat with care as we would :-).
We will only interact with you to give you keys and show you how everything works. The space is then yours but one of us will always be nearby if you have any problems.
Olivia is from Glasgow and Ross has lived here for 5 years so we both know the city well and can give advice about places to go/things to see or do/where to eat.
The flat is on the 2nd floor of a traditional tenement building (block of 8 flats with a shared stair). There is no elevator/lift.
We just expect that you treat our flat as we would. We love our flat and hope you do too.
Please do not smoke inside the flat.
We have great neighbours, please help to preserve this relationship by avoiding parties or loud music. Please also try to keep noise down in the stairwell at night. Thanks!
Maximum of 4 guests - £15/person supplement for more than 2.
Check out is by 11am unless by prior arrangement. On check out, please ensure you lock the flat door from the outside before posting the keys back through the letter box.
We don't charge a cleaning fee, so please leave the flat as it was when you arrived.
We are a young couple living in Glasgow who enjoy climbing, walking and travelling. We are both working at Universities and are away for various periods this year which is why we are welcoming guests to stay in our flat.
