About this listing
NOTE : I live at the apartment, and offer only the double room ensuite to airbnb travellers. The room has a double bed, a camp bed and an ensuite bathroom. Guests are welcome to use the whole apartment during their stay ie kitchen, living room ect. On very rare occasions I will offer the whole apartment, however this comes with an additional fee.
Breakfast is not provided, however guests can help themselves to anything that is in the cupboards, bread, cereal, tea coffee etc.
Beautiful apartment set within the grounds of the famous ‘Blue Coat,'and nestled between Church Rd and the well renowned ‘Penny lane,’ where a vast array of bars, restaurants and shops can be found. One can dine out in some of the best restaurants Liverpool has to offer or simply grab a bite to eat in one of the many pubs or cosy cafe bars. Liverpool city centre is almost on the doorstep, approximately 3 miles.

NOTE : I always respond to messages immediately, unfortunately on occassion Airbnb messages do not make it through. If you have sent a message and I have not responded within 7 hours, please send another message. Also, my personal contact details will be made available to you when I have confirmed your reservation. :)
Checkin/checkout times are flexible, however please try to contact me through Airbnb or via text, the day before arrival or at the very latest the morning of arrival. I have found the exchange of keys runs much smoother when I know what time guests are arriving. :)
I dont really have any house rules, apart from the usual, respect my apartment, no all night partys whilst the host is in residence. :) All guests are given their own set of keys on arrival, and can then come and go as they please. :)
Claire was very welcoming and gave me very clear directions about buses and operating the electric gate etc. It was a very comfortable room in a lovely area of Liverpool.
Claire was terrific! She made us feel completely at home and was just a great person to deal with. We chatted several times, and she gave us great tips about the area and the city in general, pointing out several places of interest. The room was comfortable, had a private bathroom, and was close to a bus stop and a cab stand (cabs from there were about 7 pounds into city center, although on a nice day you can walk). It was our first time going through this service, and I'd recommend it, not just for the accommodations, but also because it gives you contact with a local, which gives you an interaction you may not get in a hotel.
We had a very lovely time at Claire's apartment. Claire is very nice and helpful, she gave us lots of information about Liverpool and made us feel at home. The apartment is really beautiful, everything was very clean and exactly as described. We would definitely recommend to stay at her place!
The apartment is great: spacious room, a comfy bed and a great shower. It is safe and secure with free parking and convenient for buses into town. Within four minutes walk is Liverpool's highest rated restaurant; a tapas bar with friendly staff and great food.
The best part of my stay was Claire herself. She is a really genuine person with a lovely smile and a ready laugh. I immediately felt right at home and would book again without hesitation.
Claire was really friendly and welcoming. She recommended places to visit and explained the city to us. We were there for a festival and she recommended local bands to us which was really nice. The flat was really clean and nice and located very close to Penny Lane, local shops and bus stops. The room was homy and tidy. We really liked that we had our own bathroom. Overall we had great stay and Claire is a really lovely host.
About the Host, Claire
A little bit about me.......Well I'm pretty easy going, love music, my home is constantly filled with music from every genre. I really enjoy cooking, and try to pick up a local cook book in every country I visit, I love recreating the local dishes back home, its a wonderful, authentic way of recapturing the experiences had whilst travelling.
I'm also pretty philosophical about life, I see the good in everyone, I go to Buddhist meditation classes once a week, nothing heavy, but I find it helps me stay positive, as lifes not always an easy ride. Lets see what else, Oh yes, I have been an airbnb host for almost nine months, and I can honestly say each and every one of my guests have added positively to my outlook on life. It does help that I love meeting new people, and consider myself very lucky to have a beautiful, tranquil home that I enjoy sharing with others. Well thats it, dont want to bore people too much, I look forward to meeting you :)
