Interaction with Guests
Happy to help. I have maps, local info, guides and travel info, a cuppa tea and a wee chat with an introduction to The Friendliest City in the World
(That's official! We've even gotta Cup.)
Above a great Italian Cafe, with two others within 200 meters. (but you get a discount from Smile! Cafe because Santino loves AirBnB too.)
Beautiful riverside walk 100 meters away, with over 50 restaurants and pubs within a 15 minute walk. Plus, 9 museums, botanical Gardens, 3 parks all within 20 minutes.
7 minutes (I geekily timed it) to Underground system and 4 minutes to all major bus routes, though, you can easily walk anywhere from the apartment.
Other Things to Note
You can call, text, email me about anything. You really are welcome. Good communication seems to keep the stress of your journey down as much as possible. Also, you can check-in anytime, I've had guests arrive at 6.30am and at midnight (that's EasyJet for you) its not a problem,.
Relax and have an enjoyable time. Your on your holidays!
Staying with Dave was fantastic. He was very quick to respond to messages, and kind enough to both adjust our check-in time when needed, and guide us around the neighborhood (which was lovely). The apartment is clean and close to free parking and some nice restaurants. Would definitely stay with Dave again.
Wir waren zwei Nächte in Glasgow bei Dave und es war super. Er hat uns sehr nett empfangen und uns viele nützliche Tipps über die Stadt gegeben. Die Wohnung liegt im Westen der Stadt, wo sehr viele nette Cafés und Restaurants gelegen sind. Die U-Bahn Station, von wo man in acht Minuten in der Innenstadt ist, ist bequem zu erreichen. Das Zimmer war sauber und ganz charmant eingerichtet. Wir würden uns auf jeden Fall wieder bei Dave einmieten.
We had a great time at Dave's - lovely chap full of good advice, great flat in lovely location and above a fantastic Italian cafe. Highly recommended.
Dave war vor und während der Reise jederzeit für uns erreichbar. Er hat uns herzlich in Empfang genommen und uns super Tipps für die 2 Tage in Glasgow gegeben. Er hat uns eine Karte beschriftet, mit der wir alles gut finden konnten! Die Wohnung war wie beschrieben - sehr stilecht - mit einigen witzigen Wohnaccessoires! Da die Heizung nicht richtig funktionierte, gab es in jedem Zimmer einen Heizlüfter, die ihre Dienste bei unseren Aufenthalten in der Wohnung taten. Wir hatten die ganze Wohnung für uns alleine, da keine weiteren Gäste im zweiten Gästezimmer wohnten. Die Gegend in der Daves Airbnb-Wohnung liegt, ist richtig nett - Shops, Cafes, der botanische Garten - alles sehr schön. Der Weg zur Subway beträgt wirklich nur 7-8 Minuten.
David is a fantastic host. He made us feel extremely welcome when we arrived and gave us some local insight to good attractions and restaurants / bars to visit. Double bedroom and apartment is well presented, clean quirky and comfy. Flat location is great too.

About the Host, Dave
I love walking, reading, eating. Love good friends, conversation and cooking Love animals, sunshine, rain, snow. I'm a wee bit shy but people say I'm a cheery little fella and easy company. I'm five foot seven inches tall (that's not tall) so I don't take up much space. Text me even if you just want any info on Glasgow, I'm happy to help out if I can. Now, if I can just figure out how to add a photo...
Santino makes the best sandwiches, and its official, its in The List (Magazine and website, the best guide to whats on in Glasgow and Edinburgh.) Also, he and Rocco two very smiley HobbitsesQueen Margaret Dr Glasgow Scotland G20 8NZ
Great Cafe for food, funnily enough Paulo and Santino (who runs Smile Cafe two doors down) used to work together, but neither knew they were opening Italian Cafes pretty much next door to one another.Queen Margaret Drive Glasgow G20 8NZ
