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, my good friends Damian (Dee) and Leigh Hutton will take great care of all my apartment guests.

This place is comfortable and has a perfect location. All of the sights downtown were within walking distance and shopping and restaurants were nearby too. The view from the windows and balcony were just lovely. We totally enjoyed our stay!

Extraordinary river view and location is walkable to sights, pubs, shops, restaurants. Stephen was accessible and helpful.

This was an ok experience. The place is nice and location was good but we nearly ran out of toilet paper. We had to ration since there was only what was on the rolls and we only stayed one night. The fridge was not turned on when we arrived so that was an issue with freezer items. Plus when we opened the freezer to put items in we were surprised by water running out. First thought the thing was broken. For the price of the place we expect a better set up then what was left. Trash can liners were missing too. The view is nice but be careful of the door in the living space. Its a bit tricky and the hand set spins. Overall our experience on this place was it is way too expensive for what we got.

Response from Stephen:
Firstly, thanks for choosing my apartment to stay in. Secondly, regarding the cost/price of your stay - you got a central riverfront apartment for 4 adults, with two bathrooms, a beautiful balcony and FREE indoor parking for less than the price of the local 3 star hotel. You also stayed in August, which is peak season. Remember also, Airbnb rightfully add their service fees to the price you paid. (€140 approx. You can stay with me for €60 in the off-peak season for example) All the small issues regarding toilet roll and bin liners could've been fixed in 5 minutes if you have simply called or emailed us. We Could've told you where in the apartment you would find the extra supplies, The extra toilet roll was there. I know you are an Airbnb newbie (1 month) but in future you need to give experienced hosts like me (5 years) a chance to help you and fix any problems you have, by actually contacting us and letting us know, at the time. With respect, there is little benefit to you in keeping quiet at the time and then complaining online after you've left. Best wishes to you and happy travels. Stephen Owner

We stayed for a week and a half and enjoyed every day. Stephen was great at answering questions, before and during our stay. His home is comfortable, clean, perfectly located, and has THE BEST views! We really enjoyed Primrose downstairs though the kitchen is great when we felt like cooking for ourselves. I can't wait to stay again on our next visit to Derry!

Great location close to restaurants and downtown. Surprised that second bedroom had bunk beds. We made it work.
Stephen User Profile
Response from Stephen:
Thanks for staying Rick, was a pleasure to host you. Im not sure why you were surprised the second bedroom has a bunk bed (double bottom and single on top) as it is clearly displayed in my listing photos. You're the first person to mention the bunk bed in 5 years, and If I thought guests would prefer a double bed in that second bedroom then I'd remove the bunk bed - no problem. I just figure it gives guests a chance to have an extra person stay in the single bed on top so thats why I have it. I'm glad you enjoyed the great location. Best wishes to you. Stephen

This is a roomy, very quiet and private apartment with a gorgeous view. We especially appreciated the free parking since the last city house we had did not have such. The location is perfect; far enough from downtown to be quiet but within an easy walk to restaurants and shops. Do not miss Giants Causeway for fantastic scenery. Stephen was easy to reach and took perfect care of us. Highly recommend!

Great place! Modern, clean and a great location on the river near the Peace bridge. Walking distance to many restaurants, including Primrose, attached to the building, very good especially for breakfast. Great communication with Stephen, highly recommend this apartment.

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 which I rent out to couples, familes and vacationing professionals on short-term stays.
Sometimes 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!"

I will be happy welcome you to my lovely property and to help introduce to you my beloved home region of Derry/Donegal.

Needless to say, free Travel tips/advice is my speciality
