Apartment, Glasgow, Vacation Rentals - Glasgow (Glasgow City)
This 5 star standard two bedroom apartment is in the heart of the cultural and bohemian west end. The apartment is within walking distance of many of the city's attractions and a plethora of cafes, bars, delis and restaurants. The apartment spans the garden level of an end of terrace Victorian stone built villa, which is typical of the architecture in this part of the city. The apartment has been luxuriously designed and furnished to the highest standard and is truly a home from home. There is a private parking space and a small private garden. The apartment has two double sized bedrooms - one has a double bed and the other can be made up as either a king bed or two singles. The apartment is great for one to four people, but if you want to accommodate more, I can provide an air bed for the living room. Bed linen, towels and toiletries are included. Both the bedrooms and the living room have flat screen TVs and there is a blu-ray player in the living room. The kitchen is fully integrated and has everything you need for a whole range of cooking options. Guests will have access to the whole apartment, private garden with bistro table and chairs and one private parking space adjacent to the apartment. The garden which borders the other side of the apartment is for use by the residents of the house above only. As I now live in London, I will not be available to meet and greet you personally, but I will communicate with you via email or telephone prior to your arrival. I also have a lovely housekeeper, Margaret, who lives locally and can take care of your needs and questions that you may have during your stay. As I have lived in the area, I can give you good advice on where to go and what to do. There is an amazing array of restaurants locally, and in the city centre, so I can help recommend places to eat for casual or special occasions or even make reservations on your behalf. If you need anything special arranged prior to your arrival, just ask and Margaret or I will be delighted to wave our wand and it will be done.
