The flat was a beautiful rustic Georgian flat on 2 levels with 2 bedrooms and ample facilities with a kitchen and sitting room. The flat was clean and comfortable and great to get washing done after a days hiking in the area. It was a perfect launch spot for many of the great hikes around the Dumfries area and easy walking distance (meters) to stores/pubs and restaurants..
Stayed at Luke's place mid September. Brilliant central location. Accommodation as described - historical but comfortable.
This stay was for my niece Laura, who was in Dumfries just prior to starting a semester abroad at the University of Glasgow campus there. In setting up the stay I found Luke responsive and easy to work with, and he treated Laura as the adult she is. She was extraordinarily happy during her stay.
Laura says, "Luke went out of his way to ensure that my time was comfortable and easy. He even made sure that I got to my student housing at the end of my stay. The room and ensuite bathroom had everything I needed, and the bed was very comfortable. The garden was lovely, the house cozy and filled with interesting books and items from his travels. Luke also has extensive knowledge about architecture and buildings in Dumfries and happily told me the history of many of the places in town."
This was our first AirBnB booking, choosing this home as a base for us to explore more of Dumfries and Galloway's many historical locations. We could not have been more delighted with this choice, as this property holds all of the character and personality to truly earn the label of an Antique Home.
Our host Luke could not have done more to make our stay more comfortable and breakfasts were a thing to look forward to, eggs sourced locally were a great start to the day. Our room was incredibly comfortable with a view looking out to the walled garden and en suite a refreshing mix of modern convenience and antique style. Luke also provided a wealthy knowledge of local history, architecture and current knowledge of things to do.
This has set the standard of future locations for us to explore more of Scotland - thank you Luke (and Mr Claws).
Luke was a very pleasant host and his flat was absolutely ideal for our trip, highly recommend! Major supermarkets and the town centre itself are a very short walk away for getting the essentials (cereal, milk and tea bags!)
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. )
Luke was always courteous, and was a clean, tidy and an unobtrusive guest. He is welcome to stay anytime.
