About This Listing
We bought this house about 4 years ago and love the area. It's multi-cultural and very safe. There are 2 small parks a minute away from our home, and the tram into town is just a 7 minute walk away. We're about 10 minutes tram ride from the city centre, and 10 minutes tram (or a 20 minute walk) from the famous Manchester United football ground and Old Trafford cricket ground. There are grocery shops and take-aways nearby, and we are close to Chorlton, an area with lots of bars and shops.
We have a small guest room with one single bed , so it's ideal for a person travelling alone. However if two people are travelling together and would like to share the room it can be presented as a twin room, as a second slightly smaller bed pulls out from beneath the other. This second bed sits close to the ground, and is a proper mattress on a low base. Please note however that the room is small so when there are two guests staying there is very limited space in the room. This may be suitable for people travelling on a budget, who plan to be about and about during the day.
The room contains some shelving to put your belongings on and some hooks on the door if you wish to hang some clothes.
We both work full time (varied times of the day), so may be busy during your stay, but are very happy to point people in the right direction of good places to go and things to see. Manchester has plenty to offer!
Please note we don't include breakfast, but you're welcome to help yourselves to tea and coffee, and use our kitchen to store and prepare food if you want. Please also note that there is one bathroom in the house that is shared. We welcome feedback from guests and always seek to make improvements wherever any are suggested.
Thanks for looking, we look forward to accommodating you.
Only our bedroom, you're welcome to use the entire house.
Interaction with Guests
Some times loads, sometimes not at all, we're laid back and easy to get on with, especially after a glass of wine or 3.
Safe, quite, relaxed and easy to get around to other places.
Very good, Tram and Bus. You can take the tram direct from the airport.
We ask that guests check out by 12 noon. If for any reason you need to stay later, or wish to collect luggage later in the day please discuss it with us and we will try to accommodate you if it is possible.
It was a very nice stay. The room was exactly what I expected. Quiet neighbourhood, well located. Our host gave us very useful information about her city.
The reservation was canceled 6 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Wow, my first airbnb experience, and what an awesome place to start with! I wanted a place close to the stadium to watch the Saturday match, but never thought the place would be so welcoming, quaint and beautiful :)
Although Sam and Lisa were out of town, I got replies for all my queries within the hour, and Lindsey was super helpful guiding me to the apartment.
The room itself - I think the photo doesn't do justice to the comfy bed :) The place was left pretty much to myself - clean towels, a clean and well maintained toilet, speedy Wi Fi - couldn't ask for much else really.
Only disappointment I had was not meeting Sam and Lisa personally, having read all the awesome reviews about them. If I ever come again for watching another match again though, I know where I'm going to stay :)
Thanks a ton guys!
What a great place to stay in Manchester! Within 2 minutes, I received the confirmation that we could stay at Sam & Lisa's place. Super efficient :)
Unfortunately, we did not meet Sam & Lisa, a friend opened the door and stayed with us for one night. After that we had the house for ourselves for about 3 days. It was comfortable and very nice to stay there.
Thanks a lot for the trust you gave us :)
Sam and Lisa's place was a great place to stay at during our brief time in Manchester. We didn't get to meet Sam however, Lisa was a lovely host who made us feel very welcome and always happy to help. The place is very clean and the room is nice and cosy!
