If you like natural wood and a homely feel then you'll like it here.Not much traffic with nice aspects across open space to front. Quirky & cool bearded hipster bars close enough but far enough away to get a good night's rest! Full kitchen & use of stereo.
Govanhill is not a typical Scottish area. It is less gentrified than the West End & has more rubbish in the streets. But we love it because it has a hot-pot of diverse communities and ethnicities vibrant cafes, restaurants & shops. Cooler!?
Traditional high ceiling bay window with a relaxed homely feel with open aspects out to a shared green-space.
Open plan kitchen/sitting room with Art Deco seating to enjoy bay window views or the On-Demand TV or simply plug in your own music. There is a fold out breakfast table on the table that the TV/Hifi is on. There is a folding chair in the hall.
TV.. well there is On Demand TV (not live TV) which has most channels apart from BBC ones - I don't pay a TV license. I don't believe I should give BBC any money after their biased coverage of the Scottish Referendum.
If you enjoy cooking there is an eye level oven, microwave, fancy touch screen hob (twiddly nobs are better!), Belfast sink, freezer space in hall. There is a fold out table with two chairs for eating at. Sorted!
While relaxing you can enjoy on-demand TV again connected to my stereo - or to keep you awake with your full belly! Switch speakers on in bedroom and relax to your tunes in the solid wooden bed or the old Victorian 'grand-pa' chair with your feet on the bed...
The bathroom is probably my favourite space. I went to the bother of installing a rotating bath tap so no arguments on who has to sit at the tap end while enjoying the wooden features...
You'll have access to the whole flat and the shared back garden. I'll vacate the flat for you and make it all tidy and clean. If the weather is nice you could take out the garden furniture and chill in the back garden.
Interaction with guests
I'll give you my mobile number to call me if you have any issues.
Other things to note
Extra people is on a case by case basis. Just let me know your requirements.
Fruit and veg and butchers shops are a stone's throw from flat as well as a Lidl, Sainbury's Local and Tesco Metro. There are loads of cafes, pubs/bars close by but not too close by that you can hear any noise from them.
Please note - I do require appropriate verification to be registered with Airbnb and as a result I reserve the right to cancel your booking if you don't have any. Sorry about that but it is my home :)
- Treat your neighbours as you'd like to be treated so don't turn the stereo up to 11!
- Check-in and check-out is by mutual agreement by yourself and myself.
- No smoking in the flat.
- No pets I'm afraid.
- If you want a very early check-in I will try accommodate but there may be a small charge depending on the time and my location at the time.
Well I've been hosting for a while now so I thought it was about time I have a wee holiday myself, so here I am!
I'll treat your place with respect and leave it hopefully as tidy as I met it.
I'd say I'm friendly and approachable and pretty easy going... to the point where friends have said I have an ability to attract all the weirdos! I also have a sense of humour...
I love the outdoors, nice views and anything green and leafy.
