A spacious 2 bedroom flat with all the amenities you need for a stay here. Kitchen fully equipped for your cooking requirements. Lounge with dining table and tv. Super fast wi-fi broadband available. Bathroom with power shower and bath.
A top floor flat situated in a quiet cul-de-sac in Busby, a conservation area 6miles/10Km from Glasgow City Centre. It comprises of two bedrooms (one with a double bed and the other has a sofa bed), a fitted kitchen with all amenities, i.e. cooker, fridge, freezer, washing machine, microwave etc, a bathroom with bath and shower facilities, and a spacious lounge/dining area, with use of cable TV. There is free wifi throughout.
Bedding and towels will be provided for all guests. A hairdryer is also in the apartment.
There are car parking spaces directly outside the flat so there will be no parking problems should you be visiting with a car.
With Glasgow only a 20 minute journey by train (25 mins by bus) and the local train station and bus stop only a few minutes away, this is an ideal place to stay while visiting Glasgow and its surrounding areas.
Strictly NO SMOKING.
I don't charge a cleaning fee to keep costs down so guests are asked to leave the place tidy when leaving.
"Scotland's largest city is a friendly, bustling town with imposing 19th-century buildings, vibrant theatre life, the most talked-about independent music scene outside the USA and watering holes that run the gamut from trendy bars to traditional pubs. The city's buses and metro system make it easy to explore. Don't miss the re-opened Kelvingrove Art Museum, the Victorian Necropolis, or the surprisingly delicious local delicacy: deep-fried pizza. Glasgow is the gateway to the Highlands and Islands."
Guests have full access to the apartment. I will be staying elsewhere. The only area off limits is the attic where I keep some of my belongings.
Interaction with Guests
I leave guests to it for their stay and only arrange to visit to collect mail for stays which last a few weeks or more.
I only ask people to treat the place as if it is their own.
It is an apartment in a block of 6 flats in total and would like tenants to respect the communal area and staircase. Please respect the neighbours below the apartment.
Strictly NO SMOKING.
Please leave the place tidy after your stay.
Derek was very welcoming and spent time showing us around and made us feel very much at home. It is a lovely quiet apartment in a nice location but also close to local amenities. It was perfect for us visiting friends and family and we will most certainly be back. Thank you Derek for your hospitality.
Great host, couldn't do enough for us, and gorgeous place, would definitely recommend and stay there again
Derek met me and showed me around the flat. He has a very comfortable,well equipped home; everything a couple could need. Lots is dishes, utensils, pots, pans, towels etc. the pictures are exactly what the place looks like. He just had a new boiler installed and the place was lovely and warm. ( something you don't always find in Scotland in the winter) There was lots of parking, and it is a lovely quiet area, but close to local shopping, restaurants, and good public transport to Glasgow city centre or East Kilbride.
Communication with Derek was great, and it was a pleasure to meet him in person. My son and I loved staying in his flat - it felt just like home. I would definitely stay there again when I return to the area, and have no hesitation in recommending Derek's flat to anyone visiting Glasgow.
The host replied promptly and was really helpful throughtout, even during my stay. The flat was as described and ready on arrival, everything was in place to move right in, plenty heating and hot water also Internet and Virgin TV. I found airbnb by accident but am glad I did.
Derek's flat in Busby was ideal for us. It was warm, comfortable, well equipped and in a quiet area but close to rail and bus links into Glasgow.
We didn't meet Derek but everything we needed to know was on the book he has compiled for visitors.
Derek's place is cosy and comfortable like home that we wish to stay longer. Quiet and peaceful environment which feel so relaxed after a whole day out sightseeing. Conveinent transportation with less than 10mins walk from the flat to Busby Rail station. Derek has been so accomodating to our last minute changes here and there, he response very promptly on all our questions within couple couple of hours. Will surely stay at Derek's place on our next trip to Scotland and will stay longer.
Thank you for giving us such a great experience. Till next time.
We had a very comfortable stay at Derek's flat. The flat is well equipped and cozy. We found it very convenient - about a 5 minute walk to the train station and Glasgow has the best train connections in the UK. The train into Glasgow runs every 20 to 30 minutes. We had rented a car, but parked it after we arrived and did not use it again until we returned to the airport. Unfortunately we did not realize that there is service from the Glasgow Airport terminal to Central Glasgow which will get to just about anywhere you need to go in the area. Next time we will definitely not rent a car and save $$$s. Would definitely stay here again when we come back to Scotland. Thanks Derek!
I am originally from the Isle of Lewis (small Island north west scotland) and have lived in Glasgow for the last 13 years working in the city. I have several hobbies including watching sport (mainly football), read books on my kindle, walking and also watch tv and films. My first language is Gaelic however I am fluent in both English and Gaelic, I can also speak and understand a little bit of Spanish. I am embarking on a career in the Merchant Navy so my friend James helps me out with meeting and greeting guests when I am away!
