Description

The space

We have a two bedroomed, two-floor maisonette with shared communal garden. Our home is on the first floor, accessed by an external staircase. We share a communal entrance door with one other maisonette.

We are right beside Aberdeen harbour: great for those who love the sea. Our place would be brilliant for someone who wants to go dolphin-spotting, we are a 10 minute walk from where dolphins are regularly seen at the Torry Battery.

Shared access to a professional sound-proofed music studio with digital piano (free after 9.30pm every night)
Free tea and coffee
Free breakfast cereal and milk, please help yourself.
Our bedroom on the 1st floor is private.

We will be there to welcome our guests and to help them settle in. We are happy to help and socialise with our guests, but if they would prefer to have some private time to relax on their own that's ok too.

In the evening it is VERY quiet. You sometimes hear children playing outside in the evening, but at after around 9pm is gets very quiet. This is a quiet residential street, the nearest place to buy groceries is a 10 minute walk away, there is a local bar 2 minute walk away. The nearest restaurants are in Union Square shopping centre, which is a 25 min walk.

I love being near the sea, and it is also just a short distance from the city centre.
We have a large communal garden, and you can hear birdsong regularly throughout the day.
I love that our area feels a bit like a little village as it's in an old area (our building was built in 1891) but we are still in the city; the best of both worlds!

There is a parking bay at the front of the houses for residents, it is free.

Approx. 10 minute walk from our house up to the Torry Battery, which is a good viewing spot for the dolphins.

The stairs leading up to our apartment are a bit shallow, so they may be really difficult for someone who has mobility problems.

Guest access

You can access all areas apart from our upstairs bedroom. Please feel free to make yourself at home.
Outside there is a large communal garden which you are welcome to use, it is nice sometimes to sit outside and have a glass of wine.

Interaction with guests

Jayne works from home so she will be around to help if needed.

The neighbourhood

In the evening it is VERY quiet.
This part of town has no restaurants, the nearest ones are a 20min walk away in Union Square shopping centre.

Getting around

25 minute walk to Union Square shopping centre (holds bus and railway station).
2 minute walk to the bus stop on Victoria Road, the 59 or the 12 will take you into the city centre. Both services are approx every 10 - 15 minutes during weekdays. A single on the 12 costs £2.20 but they don't give any change, exact fare only. The 59 bus is £1.75 single, or a day ticket for £3.00.

Other things to note

The stairs leading up to our apartment are a bit shallow, so they may be really difficult for someone who has mobility problems.

RSPB has a stand at the Torry Battery during the summer Thursday -Sun 2pm -6pm. You can borrow binoculars from them for a small donation.
