A healthy, vegan breakfast, usually consisting of granola and fruit, is provided ONLY when you book the double room for less than 7 days. If you book for longer breakfast is provided on the first night only. Breakfast is not provided if you book the entire apartment. You can feel free to bring your own food and use the kitchen.
Please close all windows and make sure that both locks are locked on my front door when the apartment is left alone.
It's a quiet block and the neighbours below have children so I ask guests to be considerate. Please take off noisy shoes when in the apartment, so the people below can't hear you walking around.
I also work from home, so will often be around, working in the living room on my laptop, during the daytime but I'm easy to live with and happy to be flexible.
Guests must be dog lovers! Juno is little and well behaved. She'll bark when you arrive but will soon settle down to be her usual affectionate self. Please be nice to her. She stays in the kitchen with the door closed at night and when nobody is in. If you're the last one to leave please MAKE SURE she is in the kitchen with the door closed.
Gill helpfully gave me a lift from the station to her home, provided dinner, breakfast and friendly conversation. Thanks!
We had a great stay at Gill's, her flat is very nice and well located, only a short distance to the city centre and main train and coach stations.
We did not have the chance to meet Gill unfortunately as she was away but she left us all the information we needed and her parents kindly came to welcome us and hand us the keys.
We had a wonderful stay in Liverpool!
I enjoyed meeting Gill during my brief visit and we had a very interesting discussion over breakfast (as well as a nice cuddle with Juno, her little dog!) Gill was very organised about all the arrangements and seemed relaxed about having people to stay in her home, which made me feel at ease.
The information about the apartment was accurate and I slept very well in the comfortable bed. I also appreciated being able to enjoy a lie-in and a leisurely start without having to check-out too early in the morning.
The neighbourhood was really peaceful and being able to park outside was very convenient. The location was great for me as it meant I was able to stop off on my way into the city from the motorway and getting into town from there was an easy bus ride.
Apartment propre . Accès facile et rapide au centre ville via les bus
Petit bémol : la température ambiante des pièces était vraiment très basse - dommage pour un séjour en hiver.
Gill est une hôte sympa prête a partager ses connaissances de la ville et ses bons plans !
Gill is a lovely host. She was very friendly. Her home is cosy. The beds were comfy and her dog Juno was very cute.
Gill was a warm, friendly, thoughtful host. Staying with her felt very comfortable.
I had a great time staying with GIll! Her flat was clean and VERY spacious- I live in a tiny studio in London, so it was a treat. Gill was incredibly helpful when it came to helping me find my way around Liverpool. Very sweet, cool person. Her dog was adorable. I highly recommend staying here.

About the Host, Gill
I work as writer but I also run events in the city, so I know Liverpool well and can give as much advice as you need on where to go and what to see.
I am a friendly non-smoker who can most often be found working, walking the dog or at yoga. I'm also vegan, so the breakfasts I supply are healthy fresh fruit and granola, though guests are welcome to put their own food in the fridge. Breakfast is ONLY supplied for guests booking the double room for less than a week. If you book for longer, I supply the first day's breakfast only. Breakfast is not supplied when booking the entire apartment.
Please only book the double room if you are happy to share the apartment with me and my small, well behaved dog. If you need more space and want to be dog-free, feel free to check out my other listing and book the entire place.
