Hi, my name is Joanne.
I live in a really peaceful block of flats in Didsbury (on the ground floor), a walk away from Didsbury Village and West Didsbury where you will find a huge range of independent restaurants, bars, shops, cafes and pubs. I am also very close to the city centre where you will have access to art galleries (Manchester Art Gallery, The Lowry to name just a few), theatres, clubs and all the activities the city centre can offer you. Chorlton is also near by.
Didsbury is a in the suburbs, far enough from the city centre, with lots of parks and green spaces around but close enough to get around and see the sights.
Your room has a comfy double bed, and is nice and quite (a rest bite after a days trekking around the city). With a built in wardrobe, and shelving there is plenty of space to pack away your clothes and store your belongings. You will have access to the the living room where you are welcome to watch a bit of TV if you wish or just chill out.
I also provide towels so you don't need to bring them along.
The kitchen has a washing machine should you need it plus all the things you would need to cook dinner or make yourself lunch if you prefer to buy food from the many supermarkets in the area. There is a really nice Deli around the corner that does the most amazing samosas! And did i mention there is a cheese hamlet in Didsbury village!
The whole flat has central heating so no worries about being cold.
And of course WIFI access.
My flat is just off Wilmslow Road, a road where you will find buses that take you straight into the city centre (42, 142) and with no traffic can take 20 minutes. A new tram stop has just been built in Didsbury which can take you straight to Salford Quays (the home of the new BBC), Trafford Park (home of Man United) and also straight into the city centre. Pretty much transport here can take you anywhere!
You can also get the train straight from Manchester Airport or Manchester Piccadilly to a station near me called Didsbury station - then you can get the bus or its a 20 minute walk.
I have lived here for 10 years so am happy to recommend nice places to eat/drink/visit!
If you do have any questions please contact me and i'll happily answer them.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Joanne is very very friendly and her apartment is nice and cozy. The apartment very near to the tube station and easy to go central. Really recommend her place.
Staying with Jo was a very pleasant experience! The room (and especially the bed) was nice and comfortable, and Jo was there when I had questions or needed help with anything.I would definitely stay with Jo again.
Jo was a great host and made me feel welcome from the moment I walked in. It's a lovely home with a unique personality and in close proximity to Didsbury village. Highly recommended!
We've had a great time in Manchester and it is mostly because of our host Joanne's bed - it was so relaxing and comfortable :) . In fact there ware only 2 days but she has hepled us a lot about the transport and the Cristmas markets, she left us a map! Thanks Jo
Joanne's flat is warm, welcoming, and spacious. The location is excellent - quiet and leafy with frequent buses to the centre of Mcr, and a wide variety of places to eat and drink nearby. Highly recommended.
We had a great stay at Joanne's. Nice room, Nice big bathroom. We felt very at home. I recommend the room to anyone.
Just like staying at home or a friend's place! Very clean, very comfortable bed (4 pillows!) and nice little touches (bottled water and jelly beans next to the bed), plus a personable host in Joanne (many thanks!).
After a late night flight from Manchester, Jo's smiling face and warm reception was just what we needed. She is a great host.
The flat is in a perfect location for access to the city, Didsbury and West Didsbury which are great little places for restaurants, cafes and little artisan shops.
Thanks for a great stay Jo.
P.S. One of the most comfortable beds I've ever had the pleasure of sleeping in.
I stayed with Joanne at her flat over three weeks whilst I was in the area on business. Joanne is a fantastic host who is welcoming, charming and great company. Her flat is clean and well set-up with WiFi. The bathroom has recently been nicely refurbished and is right next to the guest room.
The flat is near Didsbury, which has a large selection of good restaurants. I was really impressed at the selection available. Everything from gourmet burghers to swish al la carte restaurants. Additionally, there are good transport links all within a walking distance with busses, trams and trains where you can access Manchester City centre. If you need to access the airport you are on that side of the City within a short taxi ride. I was looking for an alternative to the regular hotels, somewhere, which was friendly and relaxed and I wasn't disappointed. I would throughly recommend staying at Joanne's place.
Jo was accommodating and helped us by naming off a few good places to eat/drink in Didsbury. The room was excellent and the shower the best we had on our trip (trust me, you start to care about this). Walking distance from some great night life.
