Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Situated in the vibrant West End burgh of Partick, this fully renovated apartment provides peace and quiet and comfort for guests.
The apartment has been extensively renovated to a very high standard over the last 8 months.
Part of a traditional historic red sandstone tenement building, the apartment is on the second floor. As its a traditional tenement all the rooms have high ceilings which adds lots of character to the apartment. With the extensive renovation, the apartment is literally brand new inside but i've still managed to mix this in with the charm of an old tenement building. There is also a complete new Central Heating system within the apartment.
The apartment has a gorgeous internal kitchen with solid wood worktops, white high gloss units and slate tiles. Kitchen facilities comprise washing machine, under counter fridge freezer, oven, hob and microwave. All crockery and cutlery is provided.
The lounge is nice and spacious with a bay window looking out onto Exeter Drive/ Dumbarton Road. In the lounge there is a high quality Sofa Bed and a relaxing large armchair. There is a solid wood dining table with 4 chairs. A brand new Sony 42 inch flatscreen Smart TV.
In the bedroom, there is a brand new luxurious Double Divan Bed (with storage drawers underneath), Sealy Posturepedic superior mattress, oak wooden wardrobe and dressing table, mirror and stool and a bedside table with lamp for reading.
The bathroom really is gorgeous. Natural Stone Travertine tiles all over to give it that wet room feel/ look. Bathroom area has a toilet, sink and stunning double shower with overhead electric shower.
The apartment is ideal for two couples or for a family of four or even 2-4 friends. It is definitely a peaceful apartment and would suit most folk looking for a relaxing short break but with the option of having all the fabulous amenities of the West End/ City Centre available to them.
*The sleeping arrangements will be the Double bed in the bedroom sleeping 2 people. In the lounge the Sofa Bed will fold down to sleep another two people. The maximum people the property can sleep is 4. If in some circumstances some guests do not want to share the sofa bed or double bed i can provide an additional single fold down bed/s.*
The main entrance to the apartment block is operated by security access.
*On street parking is available. There are NO parking charges. Parking can sometimes be limited in the evenings but you can usually always get a parking space.*
*Cot and high chair can be provided if necessary.*
*The apartment is fitted with a Smoke Alarm and Carbon Dioxide Alarm.*
The apartment is in a great location, on the thriving Dumbarton Road. With easy walking to local bistros and classic West End eateries and shops, the hustle bustle is literally on your doorstep. A 15-20 minute walk takes you to Byres Road which is bustling with cafés, shops, restaurants and nightlife. The exquisite 500 year old Glasgow University, the beautiful Kelvingrove Art Galleries and Museum, Kelvingrove Park and Glasgow Botanic Gardens are all within easy walking distance of the apartment. For those that prefer not to walk there is buses galore more or less right outside the apartment taking you all over the West End/into the City Centre. I'm happy to provide further details to guests if required.
Other nearby attractions include the Riverside Museum (European Museum of the year 2013) and the new Glasgow Hydro and Exhibition Centres which are the main venues in the whole of Scotland for exhibitions and music events.
Access to transport facilities is also within walking distance from the apartment.
Partick station is a 5 minute walk away. Its a combined railway station and underground station along with an adjacent bus station, forms one of the main transport hubs in Glasgow with regular services to many locations in Greater Glasgow and wider Strathclyde.
You can reach the centre of town in around 10 minutes by either the Train or the Underground.

Brian's flat was great. I rented it for my parents are sister, who came for a visit over Christmas, and it was perfect. Very clean, in a really quiet building where we rarely heard any of the neighbours, and close enough to Partick station. It was also surprinsingly warm, we rarely had to put the heating on! The landlord (Brian) was really really helpful and helped us out with everything we needed. I would definitely recommend this flat to anyone! (it´s ideal for 2 or 3 people)

"Excellent 1 bed apartment in a great location!"
This gem of an apartment was a fantastic find. Spotless, newly decorated & re-furbished it has everything one would wish an apartment to have. A 15 minute walk to the heart of the West End and Byres Road. Bus No. 747 takes you from Glasgow Airport almost to the front door for just under 5.00 pounds. Bedroom is at back of apartment and even though it is on a busy road it is extremely quiet and you will have no problem getting to sleep at night. Craig the owner was there to meet me and gave me all the information I needed for a comfortable stay. Hope to make a return visit to this lovely apartment in the near future.
Hi Mary, thank you kindly for your lovely review. Very grateful and hope to see you again in the near future. Kind Regards

"Great little flat in an ideal location"
Can't fault this apartment. The decor and finish has been done to a very high standard. It is spotlessly clean and had everything we needed for our weekend stay.
We would definately recommend this property as a better alternative to staying in a hotel.
Thank you very much for your lovely review Martin. Your kind words about the apartment make all the hard work worth it. Hope to see you again in the future. Cheers Craig

I had a short stay here from 16th-19th September. This apartment is a fantastic little find, it has everything you need to make your stay pleasant and comfortable and has a great location. You are close to Partick station giving you easy access to Glasgow city centre and surrounding area aswell as the West End Shopping centre. Across from the flat there is a great little Chinese take away.
Craig the owner of the apartment is great and extremely helpful as is his assistant Pauline.
I look forward to staying in this property again in the future.
Thank you kindly for your lovely informative review. Really appreciated and helps future guests with the good information you've provided. Thanks again and i hope to see you back again in the near future.

"Lovely flat, great location"
We had an enjoyable 1 weeks stay in this nicely rennovated red sandstone tenement apartment . Good location for city centre, pubs and resturants (Byres road) and more importantly for us only 20 mins walk to the hospital. Would suit 2 people comfortably although will sleep 4. Light, warm and well furnished.
Easy to find and good access to the motorway and also local public transport.
Brian was very helpfull.

Thank you so much for your lovely review. Very grateful. I should be on the Velvet Elvis and Bibis payroll haha, all my guests i've recommended them to have loved both these places...
Anyway, thanks again and i hope to see you both again in the future.

"Safe, clean, modern and honest owner"
If you are looking for a safe, clean and great location apartment in Glasgow, look no further. First, Craig Mackenzie will go out of his way to assure all is right with the apartment every moment you are there. He is a great communicator and follows up with you in an enjoyable professional manor. We rented this apt. for the month of March. Being from the USA, we had many questions and concerns prior to booking. Again, Craig was awesome at answering every question and concern for two women coming to stay for a month. The place is well laid out and all the essentials are there. Parking on the side street was always available and we felt secure coming and going into the apt complex at all times. It is very quite for it's location. Sure there is a bit of street noise but that comes with City living. There are buses, and train access within walking distance. Several super markets to help keep the cost down, or a plethora of restaurants for every taste in the neighborhood too. University of Glasgow, and several museums are a 20 min. walk away. Downtown can be walked to in an hour along the Clyde River. The updated modern feel of this place makes you feel like you are in a nice hotel. That's why this works for those on a short holiday, or a month for business/leisure combo. This is a home away from home. I could not have asked for more, and feel blessed to have found such great hospitality, honesty, and comfort for our lengthy stay.
Thank you kindly for such an amazing review. As you know I work hard to ensure all my guests have a great stay and are happy and comfortable. Reviews like this really help and give people that confidence that when they book my apartment they can be assured of a great stay. Thanks once again and also to Elena.

"Great flat, great location"
The flat was perfect for our weeks holiday exploring Glasgow. The owner met us and was very informative and helpful, we enjoyed the good pubs and restuarants he suggested within close proximity. Travelling was so easy as tube station was 5minutes walk and buses outside.
The flat was modern clean and cosy to come back to at the end of day and was in quite location to get a good nights sleep. I would hope to return and have no problem recommending this property.
Many thanks for your lovely review Monica. Much appreciated. It was a pleasure having you stay and for all your tips to make the apartment even better. Look forward to seeing you again.
