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.
I would like your room to be a room away from home and I would like you to treat it as such!
We had an absolutely fabulous three days staying at Joannes. The flat has everything you could need. The room was tidy and clean. We had the whole space to ourselves whilst we were there, as unfortunately Joanne was away for the weekend. However she very kindly arranged for us to have access by prearranging with her friend to let us in. The decoration and personal effects speak volumes about Joanne. We would love to have her and put a face to the person behind the collections of books and personal artefacts dotted around the flat. Would have no hesitation in coming back again, assuming that she would have us. All in all a first class experience. We parked our car outside for the entire duration, and used the nearby tram system to get into and out of Manchester. Totally stressfree weekend. Thank you.
Joanne is very nice and available ofr any suggestion about Manchester. The bedroom is really cosy and we felt good in Joanne's place. Not far away there is a street plenty of restaurant which really convenient.
Joanne was a lovely host despite only seeing her briefly! Especially nice to leave me a book for my travels, very thoughtful :) The room is in a perfect spot, a nice distance from the city centre and the airport. And super cool wallpaper!!
We had a great stay with Joanne! The room was lovely, very clean, cosy and warm (important when visiting in winter :)) - we felt very much at home there. Joanne was a very kind and considerate host, leaving us sweets in the room as a welcome gift, and ready to help with any directions or needs we had.
Joanne was a great host! Super comfy bed, nice treats left and clean towels. Didn't see her much but felt right at home in her flat! Easy bus access to town!
I was happy to find out that the house is nice and clean. Would definitely stay again.
This is my first airbnb experience. Joanne is very cheerful and helpful girl, you can ask her if u need advise where to go. We enjoyed the stay at her place. Love the decoration of the living room and sweet treats in the bedroom:) not forgetting the bathroom, it was is very neat, clean. thank you for the experience, Joanne:)
My name is Joanne, and I have lived in Manchester for most of my life, and I love the city for what it has to offer...there is always a new restaurant opening to try or a new band playing. I'm happy to have found Airbnb to help travellers from round the world or even within the UK discover Manchester!
When I can afford to travel myself I love the water, so anything near the sea so I can go scuba diving, fantastic.
Guests keep commenting on how wonderful the bed is, so I think thats great to hear, I like to think my place is somewhere nice to rest weary bodies!
