About this listing
You are very welcome to stay in our guestroom - a lovely double bedroom in a 1873 townhouse conversion within a leafy Victorian conservation area. Here you will enjoy a night's rest under the comfy fluffy luxurious sheets, a toasty warm shower/bath (towels provided), and access to speedy WIFI. Also, feel free to enjoy the use of our living room and kitchen; with coffee and tea on the house. A perfect home away from home.
Our place is conveniently located, being just 2 minutes walk from Hillhead subway (underground) station and the bustling Byres Road with its nice restaurants and cafes offering a wide variety of choices from early morning to late evening. We really like this part of Glasgow ourselves and are keen to share the details of where to try coffee, cakes, croissants, cheese, curry etc.
Most of the Glasgow West End attractions, including the Botanical Gardens, Glasgow University, Mackintosh House and Kelvingrove Art Gallery are within walking distance.
You will be able to get into Glasgow city centre in 10 minutes via the subway (underground) or a 40 minutes scenic walk.
Your room and the living room overlooks the Kelvinside Hillhead Parish Church designed by the architect James Sellar. It is modelled on the Sainte-Chapelle in Paris.
There are free roadside parking spaces outside our place. However, given our convenient location, it can be a rather busy street. For folks with cars, we are happy to advice on the locations within 100 metres where there are normally spaces.
We have no furry pets.
We take pride in our place and enjoy keeping it homey & tidy. We look forward to welcoming people from various walk of life. We hope to hear from you soon!
The Glasgow West End has been awarded "The Great Neighbourhood Award" in the prestigious 2014 Urbanism Awards.

Having trouble completing an airbnb booking? We require all our guests to have airbnb Verified ID.
We unfortunately do not secure room reservation till the booking on airbnb is complete. The bookings will be on first come first served basis.
I am fairly easy going but have a few rules which are based on showing respect for other people within the flat and neighbourhood:
tidy and wash up your stuff after using the kitchen for your own food preparation
keep noise down after 11pm
no visitors of guest(s)
We are happy to check you in any time after 1pm, but we appreciate confirming this time prior to your arrival so we won't be hanging around the entire day. The latest check out is 12 noon, especially if we are expecting other guests' arrival. We are happy to make other arrangements if required such as dropping of bags early before check in time.
This is so far the top airbnb experience I ever had throughout my journey. Everything is perfect. Shiyin left me a 2 pages handwritten note introducing local cafes, while David was so genuinely friendly and helpful. As I have only allowed for limited time spend in Glasgow, as a one off David showed me around the city before my 9am bus to Edinburgh. No wonder they are Superhost! Benchmark for Airbnb experience standard set :)
David was at the door to welcome us on our arrival. he gave us a tour of the premises and explained everything in detail.
Coming from Glasgow there was no need to explain the surrounding area to us but it was interesting to hear his take on it.
His information leaflet is an excellent idea and very useful when out and about.
He was the perfect host, the house was charming, spacious and bright, would have no reservations about recommending to friends and family
A lovely stay in your flat in Glasgow, thanks David and Syinyi! Lots of useful information and made to feel very at home.
Superb flat in an ideal location for visiting Glasgow's vibrant West End or getting the subway into the city centre. Our host was extremely helpful with excellent restaurant guides and information about local places to visit. Thoroughly recommended.
David è stato molto gentile e cordiale nell'(website hidden) ha fornito delle precise indicazioni per arrivare e sui migliori bar e ristoranti per i pasti.
La casa era pulita e ben ordinata e David è stato molto disponibile a condividere gli spazi con noi ospiti.
We has a very nice stay. Both hosts were charming, helpful... perfect! A beautiful room, everything we needed, a few minutes walk from everything. We'll be sure to tell our friends!
Very welcoming - advised good places to eat and have coffee and the room was lovely - very comfy bed, smart flat and would definitely recommend. In centre Glasgow near Kelvingrove. Very helpful indeed with lots of information and host could not have done more to make us feel welcome.
