About this listing
I am a 40 something mum of 1 beautiful daughter. I was born in Liverpool but spent most of my working life away from Liverpool and I’ve now been back 13 years and really enjoying living in the city now. Natalie and I have travelled a lot the last few years and have been fortunate enough to visit Spain, Croatia, Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Australia & New Zealand. We are busy planning our next adventures which we hope will include Hong Kong and Thailand. We have stayed at Airbnb properties and we think we know what works and what doesn’t which is why we’ve now opened up our home to what we feel is our little community.
If you’re coming to Liverpool for business or pleasure we can make great recommendations about where to eat or what to see and how to get there. Natalie and I know Liverpool like the back of our hand so feel free to ask away.
As you can see from our reviews our apartment is situated in the heart of the city, there are very few apartment blocks closer than ours. We are opposite the Albert Dock which houses the Echo Arena, we are next to the new Liverpool One shopping complex and are about 10 minutes walk from Lime Street station. We are approximately 15-20 minutes by bus from Liverpool John Lennon airport, 10 minute walk from Lime Street train station, 15 minute walk from Norton Street coach station.
Please note that this is our home and as such you will be sharing the apartment with us as we do live there. The room is an en-suite double room which has great views out over the dock and wheel. Fresh bed linen and towels will be supplied along with mini toiletries should you need them for your use. There is wardrobe and drawer space for you to drop your stuff. The bathroom has a walk in shower but there is also a family bathroom should you wish to take a soak in the bath.
We provide a continental breakfast of cereals, pastries, tea, coffee, juices.
The kitchen & lounge:
The open plan kitchen and lounge has amazing views of the waterfront and Albert Dock. Feel free to sit and relax, watch tv or a dvd, play a few games on the wii or sit and read a book, it’s up to you. Help yourself to free tea and coffee, there’s always cold water in the fridge should you need it. Feel free to use the kitchen to prepare a meal or snack, all we ask is that you load the dishwasher when you’ve finished as this is Natalies chore and she hates loading the dishwasher!
We now have unlimited free wifi, just ask us for the password.
We have a washer and dryer and would be happy to show you how to use it.
We have stated noon for check out but we can be flexible depending on whether we have guests arriving or leaving. Please contact us with any special requests.
Any other questions or requests please just ask!
Guests will have access to their own room with private en suite, kitchen, lounge and laundry room
Interaction with Guests
We love to sit and chat with our guests or equally let them get about their business. We do live in the apartment so are available if you want to know anything or ask for recommendations of what to see or do or where to eat.
We love living in the city. During the winter we have the ice festival on our doorstep where you can visit Santa Claus or go ice skating with friends or grab a hot chocolate from one of the many stalls around the city. During the summer months the city is alive until after dark (and until light again), it's great to see the city so vibrant and multicultural now and you will not be short of things to do or see.
Liverpool is a very compact city that has great transport links to the suburbs so whether you wish to visit the beach, the countryside or the mountains we have great access. We also have a few hop on hop off buses which are always good to get your bearings of the city and of course we have to mention our "ferry cross the mersey".
Other Things to Note
Once again it is our family home and we do live there so you would be sharing the apartment with us if you decided to stay.
We are fairly relaxed but no smoking in the apartment or building and please leave your shoes at the front door as we have cream carpets.
Joanne and her daughter were so welcoming. We felt just like friends who were staying over with them. We found her very easy going and a pleasure as a host. Her condo is in an excellent location and the description in the listing is very accurate. She left us with additional info which helped us navigate Liverpool. We would certainly recommend her to any friends planning to stay in Liverpool.
Jo was very welcoming on our arrival, giving us a full description of the facilities in the appartment, things to do and places to eat, etc....full of local knowledge.
The appartment was as expected as advertised. Despite being in the centre, it was very quiet.
Fantastic location near Albert Dock with good view towards the waterfront.
All clean and tidy, would recommend.
Liverpool is a great city to visit, lots to do and easy to get around. We were surprised by how little traffic there is.
Lovely apartment in perfect location for the waterfront and conference centres. Recommended.
Fabulous apartment.. Lovely view with the heart of liverpool... Highly recommended..
Had a wonderful stay at Jo's flat which is a modern, clean and bright flat in a purpose built block right opposite the docks in Liverpool 1. I would certainly recommend it to anybody.
Jo made it very comfortable for our stay and was a handy source of local knowledge. The facilities in the flat were wonderful and had a delightful view of the docks. Would definitely stay there again!
I would absolutely agree with al the other reviewers who have described how comfortable and conveniently located Joanne's apartment is. Joanne was very welcoming and my daughter and I had a lovely weekend in Liverpool. The view from the apartment over Albert Dock was great bonus.

About the Host, Joanne
Myself and 14 year old daughter have travelled around the world together in the last few years and are now looking forward to our trip of a lifetime which will include 3 months off from life.
We've never travelled West so I think that may be on our agenda next. We had never stayed in peoples homes before but thought it would be a fun way to get to know the area and all the secret hideouts and the best places to eat. We have stayed in a few airbnb properties now so we think we know what works but if you think we could improve/change we'd certainly like to hear from you.
My daughter and I do live in the apartment so the lounge and kitchen will be shared with us but please feel free to come in, take your shoes off and relax with us. Your bedroom and en suite bathroom is your own private space.
We have now successfuly hosted a few times for airbnb guests and have met some lovely people.
