About the Host, Glenn
We offer holiday accommodation in London and Burnley (Lancashire)
Our first vacation rental was established in Soho, London, back in 1995, it was a little studio apartment on Old Compton Street. Due to the high demand from our guests, we now offer a large variety of accommodation to suite all tastes and budgets: From a 9 berth barge on the Lancashire canals to rooms or self contained apartments in London.
There is a fantastic team of people that work with us, some have worked with us since 1997, without their support and dedication we would not be able to provide such a good service to our guests.
Over the last 19 years we have gained a lot of regular customers who come back to us year after year, and that is a great compliment.
We joined Airbnb in back in 2012 and we are proud of the many fantastic reviews received from Airbnb guests that have stayed with us, there were over 700 positive reviews at last count! We think Airbnb is one of the best travel accommodation resources out there and we always choose to use Airbnb when we travel.
We manage the business from home and have a very hands on approach. We are in contact with our team on a daily basis and we still have the same business approach as we did back in 1995 ''To supply fantastic accommodation and excellent service at affordable prices''
If you are visiting the UK then you are likely to meet one of the team: Nick, Amos, Steve, Luba, Christine, Adam, Francis or Lee.
If you have any questions then please feel free to drop me a line.
