The house is a newly refurbished 3 bed and it was great lovely double rooms and bathroom with a extra wc on the ground floor, kitchen has a very vibrant orange splashback is looked great and lots of space for the family. we loved it and have booked again next week on the 22nd for 7 nights, full marks

You will find a fully equipped apartment in an excellent location, close to everything that you might want for a short or long stay in Liverpool. Peter is an excellent host, very easy to contact before and during a stay, and nothing is too much trouble for him.
