Luke was a great host and his apartment was spectacular. The design of both the Georgian exterior and the modern interior were beautiful and it's position right in the centre of Dumfries was perfect.
Best airbnb I've ever stayed in. Luke takes very seriously both of the "B"s, offering both a dinner, and breakfast, as well as offering lemon cakes and tea or coffee immediately upon arrival. He is amazingly responsive, thoughtful, and possessing of all qualities that make an ideal host. Also, this place has style. The decor is amazing if you love the historical house aesthetic. And there are books-all genres and styles of books-in every room on every wall. It's gorgeous. The room we stayed in had an attached bathroom with all necessary items (and even some non-necessary items like cologne!) 10/10, would recommend to all other airbnb users.
We had a delightful three night stay in Dumfries. Flat is exactly as Luke described it - authentic and full of character. Home comforts such as bed linen, mattress, sofas were extremely comfortable. Kitchen is well appointed with a great cooker.
Luke is a thoughtful and attentive host, always available to answer questions.
Access to laundry facilities is always appreciated!
Wir (3 Personen) waren für 2 Tage bei Luke in Dumfries. Luke war sehr freundlich, gleich am Anfang haben wir super leckeren Tee und Kuchen bekommen. Die Wohnung ist sehr stylisch, viele liebevolle Details...eine ganz besondere Art. Vielen Dank auch für die wundervollen 15 gelben Rosen. Wir hatten eine richtig gute Zeit dort.
Danke! Angela und family
Luke is an absolutely wonderful host, with great sense of humour, charm and warmth, laced with a in-depth knowledge that straddles a spectrum of the Arts to Zimbabwe, and lots more in between. He must be the host with the most...books. ) I simply loved our stay, which was all to short The Georgian house, is very much as described, wonderfully shabby chic, walls partly exposed, whilst old wallpaper hung like a pages of a old book revealing its past history. Every where you looked, there was always something to catch your interest. My room had crisp white bed linen, window onto walled garden, block hand printed period wallpaper, wooden shutters, great books, bathroom en suite. Luke made the most amazing breakfast, and is great conversationalist Thank you so much Luke and the adorable pussy cat Mr claws. )
Beautiful home, great kitchen, kind and helpful host. We would definitely recommend this to anyone.
Luke was very friendly and helpful and we were very grateful for his flexibility in letting us use his flat for only one night, thereby allowing use of the excellent spa bath. We had an excellent full breakfast complete with haggis and black pudding! The bedroom was just right and the goose down duvet and pillows much appreciated.
We had the best stay of our entire trip at Luke's lovely flat in Dumfries, we wished we had cut London short and stayed here longer! The pics definitely do not do it justice. We felt at home right away, due in large part to the warm welcome we received. Luke is so nice and was the perfect host, to the point we almost felt like we were intruding (but that's probably just the Canadian in us). The flat is stocked with everything you need, including a games cupboard, books to read and lots of tourist info about the area, not to mention tonnes of character and gorgeous fittings. The prospect of a visit from Mr. Claws was a selling feature for me and he, like everything about the flat, didn't disappoint, what a love (if you don't like cats, just keep the downstairs door shut and he can't come up... I left it open nearly all the time). Our last night we had an evening of great conversation with our host and another guest who was staying downstairs (we finally found the crisp-stealing gull vid, ha!) and she made us all an amazing meal; it was one of the highlights of our trip. We will definitely stay here again if we ever make another trip across the pond. Thanks again for everything!
Thanks for helping us with your friend Donald who aided us brilliantly to find the house and settle in smoothly, as well as providing local advice on all manner of things. The house was charming and very honest to the description provided. We coped with the stairs and the old features very well. The accommodation is very spacious, comfortable and close to all the highlights of laid back Dumfries. A great 4 day visit. Thanks Luke. Anne and co.
Luke was really helpful host, easy check in and available to answer questions and attend to needs.
The apartment was perfect, very comfortable and exactly as described online. A little noisy from the main road close-by as well as the late nighters who seem to wander down the street, but that is a standard London thing. Other than that, you have everything you need.
Its conveniently located with buses, trains & tubes plus you have the luxury of being able to walk into central london in about half an hour, through regents park and parts of primrose hill.
Luke was always courteous, and was a clean, tidy and an unobtrusive guest. He is welcome to stay anytime.
