Interaction with Guests
When home I try to interact with my guests as much as possible - offering advice, travel tips and local history.
This apartment is my home however and I do work as a professional tour-guide round Ireland with American Travel Guru Rick Steves so am occasionally not at home during the tour season.
In this instance, the staff of my local Tourist Hostel will take great care of all my apartment guests.
My Apartment is in the most exclusive apartment block in Derry.
Located right on the riverfront, with the floor-to-ceiling windows and balcony overlooking the Foyle Marina (home to the Foyle Maritime Festival every summer).
Central location: Only 3 or 4 minutes stroll along the river to the iconic peace-bridge, ideal for the city-centre pubs and almost next door to the best restaurants in Derry.
The University of Ulster main entrance is behind the apartments on the other side of the Strand Road.
The central bus station on Foyle Street is a simple and 5 minute walk along the riverfront footpath, even with rolling suitcases. From here there is

The apartment was very good. There was a good café downstairs and the people were great. The view over the Foyle and of the Peace Bridge are fabulous. Great spot and city. Enjoyed my time there.
location was right at the waterfront and the historical part of derry in walking distance.
picking up apartment keys was easy, car parking in the same building very convenient.
i did not meet Stephen f2f, but he was always available through sms or mail when needed with fast response.
cleanliness of the apartment was not very good.
If this can be improved i can recommend this place!
Il reperimento della chiave è stato un po' faticoso, sebbene le istruzioni fossero precise. Per il resto appartamento super, posizione super, con parcheggio auto al piano dell'appartamento, host gentilissimo e puntualissimo nel rispondere a qualsiasi domanda, e a qualsiasi ora.
Vorremmo vivere in un appartamento così e in una posizione così, sul lungofiume.
We just spent a wonderful week in lovely Derry! Stephens apartment was perfectly equipped and comfortable in every way. We thoroughly enjoyed watching the river Foyle out the windows.
We did not have a car but we were able to walk everywhere from the Apartment. We easily caught the train for a wonderful day on the Antrim coast.
We highly recommend this apartment. Thank you Stephen. We hope to return to Derry some day.
Stephen's apartment is large and lovely with a fantastic view of the River Foyle. It is a safe 10-15 minute walk to the walled city and even closer to many shops, restaurants, and pubs. Stephen was very responsive to email enquiries prior to our arrival and provided detailed information about getting to his place. Unfortunately he was traveling himself when we visited so we needed to collect the key from a hostel, not far from his place, but we did have a bit of trouble finding it. At the apartment we didn't have benefit of instructions on connecting to the WiFi, but we did find the router and figured out the WiFi password. Those glitches aside, the apartment is very comfortable and we enjoyed our stay -- we would definitely stay here again. Thank you Stephen.

About the Host, Stephen
I was born in Derry and have runsuccessful and award-winning tourist-accommmodation for over 10 years.
I am lucky enough to own a luxury river-front Apartment and also a 7 bedroom Townhouse, both in the city-centre; which I rent out to couples, familes and vacationing professionals on short-term stays.
Sometimes (website hidden) guests who are Students, Professors or Professionals come and stay for longer at my properties, one even booked for 3 months!
The apartment is very high-end and and luxurious. It really has the 'wow-factor'.
You pay more and you get more!
I work as a professional tour-guide with US travel TV star, Rick Steves.
This year I had the honour of being one of 4 judges in a very high-profile competition organised by our national newspaper, the Irish Times - my job was to use my expertise to decide "The Best Place to Holiday in Ireland!"
To stay true to my backpacking roots, I decided to open up my 7 bedroom Townhouse in the exclusive 'Lawrence Hill' area (city-centre, 1 minute from the University) to budget-conscious visitors, who basically want a cheap room with a great location. These rooms are £25-£50 depending on whether it is 2 or 6 people in the room, some of the rooms are HUGE, and ensuite.
The Lawrence Hill property is quite lovely in my honest opinion, but several of the guests there have proved a little harder to please.
Most think it is a great place and excellent value for money, i just need you to know that it is a room for a cheap price, it is not Buckingham Palace, nor does it have the wow-factor of my riverfront apartment, But for the price, most guests think its great, check out the pics on my airbnb.com listing.
I will be happy welcome you to any of my lovely properties and to help introduce to you my beloved home region of Derry/Donegal.
Needless to say, free Travel tips/advice is my speciality
