The space

Welcome to my little flat in Leeds. I spend a lot of time away at weekends so this might suit people planning short visits to the city or visiting their family at University. The flat is 30 seconds walk from the Carnegie Stadium and in the middle of local shops and amenities including a local grocery and butchers (if you're keen on cooking). There are a number of fabulous restaurants in the area or just a short trip to the main city center.

The apartment is average sized, cute and cosy with a touch of retro kitsch. There is one bedroom with a comfy double bed. The living has a large comfy futon (as comfortable as the bed!) and so the flat can accommodate up to 4 people. There's no TV but alternative entertainment includes a guitar, ukulele, thumb piano and xylophone - if you're feeling musical. There are also main speakers and a portable Bluetooth speaker.

The kitchen includes fridge, freezer, oven, hob, kettle, microwave, cafetiere and utensils. I do live here, so the cupboards will be stocked. Please help yourself to tea, coffee etc.

The outside terrace is large and looks onto the gardens. Quite private thanks to a large tree directly in front. There is a BBQ - coals etc not provided.

I provide all clean sheets and towels. Guest should bring their own toiletries.

As I mentioned, I do live here full time and advise all potential guest to contact me before booking to check availability.

Hope to see you soon!

Although the flat was great, shortly after leaving Gemma's flat we received a passive aggressive message from her accusing us of switching off her fridge freezer and spoiling her food. We ended up paying £20 as compensation to Gemma despite the fact we did not think we had switched anything off and if we had it was clearly not on purpose and there was nothing to indicate a switch that was for the fridge freezer to alert us to watch out for it. Put a dampner on our first holiday with our baby.

Gemma's home is lovely - clean, comfortable and in a superb location. The deck outside is a real bonus when the sun is out! would highly recommend.

Great location. Nice cafes right beside the flat for breakfast. Lovely flat and great music collection on the Mac!! The bed is super comfortable with the extra memory foam topper! Note this is Gemmas home not a hotel. I loved the style of her decor.

Gemma was very helpful before I arrived and gave me all the information I need. The flat is definitely a home away from home. It was very cosy and clean and had ever we need. I would definitely recommend this place and I would stay again

I'm Gemma. I've been hosting and using Airbnb for my own travels for quite a while now and I love it.

I live in the flat and like to rent it out when I'm out of town or traveling so it's quite homely and comfortable. Because of this, I generally only take booking a few months in advance so please don't be offended if I decline a request that's way in advance.

I consider myself to be a friendly host and guests can make the most of all the amenities of a loved home, rather than a sparse hotel.

Between work and traveling I like to make music, watch movies, hang out with my friends enjoying good food and plenty of good wine.
