About this listing
Our beautiful ground-floor flat in a wonderful listed building, on a lovely, quiet street in a conservation area, is the perfect base to explore the city of Glasgow, the must-see West Highlands and many more of the countless attractions of Scotland.
The flat is a fine example of a traditional Glasgow tenement and retains many original features. It's in a listed building, set within the beautiful conservation area of Pollokshields. It has just about every modern convenience you could need and is a very comfortable place to spend some time.
The guest room has a comfy double bed with brand-new mattress and, for colder weather, a brand-new electric blanket; an LCD TV with Apple TV connected in the room (there's no TV signal in the room, but you're welcome to use our Netflix account via Apple TV, or sign in to your iTunes account to download movies or TV shows) as well as a Tassimo coffee-making machine. The room also has a small dresser, a nice Danish chair, a chest of drawers, bedside lamps, a hairdryer, a full-length mirror, a few books and local-interest magazines.
We provide towels and the bedding is always nice and clean. Also, we just had a brand new blackout blind fitted, so if you want to make like 1974-era David Bowie and sit in a darkened room all day, eating peppers and drinking milk, be our guest! We'd forego the burning pentagram, mind.
We also have a lovely little cottage in the Highlands that is available to rent - please have a look!
We closed our AirBnB calendar for a couple of months while we had building and upgrading work carried out, and this is our grand reopening! The kitchen has just been completely refitted to state-of-the-art specification and is fully equipped with every modern convenience (but no microwave) including a brand-new washing machine, a Siemens coffee maker, a Dualit toaster, dishwasher, gas countertop stove, electric eye-level double oven/grill and huge refrigerator with water line and ice dispenser. There is more crockery, glassware, cookware, cutlery and utensils than you will ever need, as well as a vast pantry, the contents of which guests are free to use, as long as we're not left short - ie: don't use the last oatcake without buying some, don't finish the cereal without buying some, don't finish the milk, coffee etc etc. People do, you know...
The bathroom is also freshly upgraded to a high standard, with vast walk-in shower with powerful rain shower-head, enormous mirror, large heated towel-rail and underfloor heating.
The bathroom is shared with us and though we're happy for you to luxuriate, as it's our only one it's best not to take forever in there!
We also just had a brand new, state-of-the-art boiler fitted, so the place is toastier than ever, with an endless supply of instant hot water.
Interaction with guests
If we're home in the evening we'll usually be watching TV. Guests are free to use the living room when we're not at home, but we like to have it to ourselves if we're home.
We're always happy to give any advice or help you might need at any time. We know all of the best local places to eat, drink and hang out.
Other things to note
If you're coming from the airport and there's more than one of you, it's way more time- and cost-effective to share a cab (or, even better, an Uber) to get here than using public transport.
If you're arriving by car, parking is free, safe and plentiful right outside the flat.
Clean up and tidy after yourself (including washing, drying and putting away dishes) and don't burn the place down. Please avoid taking 40-minute showers - sorry, we have only one toilet - and on weekdays, please wait until we've left for work at around 830 before taking a shower - when we're gone, you can stay in there all day if you like!
We would appreciate if you would show consideration for noisiness after 10pm on weekdays. No shouting / action movies at full blast into the wee hours. The weekends are generally fair game!
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund, including service fees.
