Interaction with Guests
You will be able to ask any questions in the morning should you need to clarify any situations.
Although we are on a hill the house looks onto the Cathkin braes and the sky is lovely at night because we are on a small street with not too many street lights. The street is quiet.
The street is in the middle of two main roads where buses run into City centre every 10 minutes and across the Main Street the Trains run. The nearest buses ar just 3 minutes to the road and the train station is 8 minutes away.
We do not have alcohol on the premises and the house is non smoking, however if you are out socialising we are happy with this as long as the household is not disrupted by unacceptable behaviour on your return.
We have two small Bichon Frise dogs who are very friendly and love people particularly children and young people. Their coats are non allergetic and suitable for asthma sufferers.
We ask that you keep the bathroom tidy by keeping your towels and wash bags in your own room after use. There is a washing basket in the bathroom for used towels and we ask that as you use the towels you place them in the basket at the window to allow for cleaning.. This way we can wash and dry the towels quickly and the bathroom is kept tidy for everyone in the house.
From Jun 1 - Aug 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 2 nights.

Ficamos totalmente à vontade em sua casa. Desde a chegada, quando seguimos suas instruções e nos instalamos no quarto, mesmo ela não estando em casa. No entanto, tudo funcionou perfeitamente e pudemos nos acomodar com tranquilidade.
O quarto é ótimo e a cama bastante confortável. Existe uma pequena geladeira, assim como um forno de microondas, além de cafeteira e vários chás. Enfim, excelentes comodidades.
Quando chegou em casa, Janie conversou conosco e se mostrou muito agradável e acolhedora.
A casa fica em Rutherglen, em uma rua estreita mas muito tranquila e segura. Da casa de Janie até a estação de trem são menos de dez minutos de caminhada. De Rutherglen até o centro de Glasgow são cerca de cinco minutos e custa 2,10 libras para ir e voltar.
O café da manhã foi outra ótima surpresa, pois é oferecida uma excelente e completa refeição.
O banheiro é compartilhado, mas em momento algum houve problema para sua utilização e sempre o encontramos em ótimas condições de limpeza.
Enfim, recomendo o lugar e certamente voltaria para lá em outra oportunidade.
Minha esposa ficou particularmente encantada com o magnífico aparelho de porcelana inglesa em que foi servido o café da manhã.
Her house looked just like the photo posted on the website - beautiful!
Janie is very friendly and extremely generous with her breakfast. The wide selection of cereal and tea made me feel like i was in a supermarket. Her cooked breakfast was fabulous with eggs, mushroom, bacon, ... as well as local delicacies if you are game. The bedroom was also large and spacious and comfortable for three. Had an art class with Janie and she turned me into an artist! It was the best picture i had drawn in my life. May pick up some soft pastels upon my return home and practise what janie has taught me. Thanks janie for the wonderful time in glasgow!
My friends and me really enjoyed all the time spent in janie's house ! The house Was exactly what we expected ; it was clean and the room was very big. The hospitality was exceptional. I really recommend it !
Jane gave us perfect describtion to find the flat, which is an ideal base to discover Glasgow. The room for three persons is very functional and there's no traffic in the neighborhood, we slept very well. Jane is a very friendly and helpful host.
Thank you for all
Staying with Jane was great. She was detailed in her directions and quick to respond to any questions I had. The room was warm, clean, and provided anything you could ask for. Having a mini fridge and tea pot in the room were a nice touch. Had a delicious full Scottish breakfast both days. She is just outside the City Center but public transportation to/from was quite easy and hassle free. Thanks for your warm hospitality Jane!
Janie was really nice and her home are very big, clean and beautiful. She made traditional Scottish breakfast for us, we like it so much. She helped us to book taxi and recommen us a very good museum to go. Thank you so much. Very enjoy the time stay in her house.
About the Host, Janie
I live in Glasgow with my Son, in the house which is in a quiet part of Glasgow.
Personally I enjoy meditation, visualisation and paint in oil, pastels, and encaustic art, which is beeswax (coloured) and melted on a hot iron and the design placed on special paper.
I host creative writing groups which are really therapy groups using writing.
I help people who like to help themselves, and do this through running one to one sessions and group sessions sometimes at the house. I use Creative Writing,making pastels and encaustic art pictures, Visualisation,Reiki, EFT and NLP.
I hold weekend retreats for people wanting to visit Glasgow and have a relaxed place to stay at the same time.
We are an alcohol and smoking free house, however, I don't object to people drinking alcohol when they go out socially provided they don't disrupt the house when returning.
We are easy going and friendly trying to enjoy life on life's terms.
