About Monica McCarey
The owners, Monica & Duncan, live and work in Glasgow. They are passionate about art & architecture & formed 'unlimited studios' in 2007, incorporating 'us architects' and 'iota', an arts venue. 'City Loft' was completed in 2012 and is one of their favourite projects to date.
Monica McCarey purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Monica McCarey chose Glasgow
We found this great property- a recently built loft on top of a great classical building, but the interior was in a very sad state of repair - so we invested lots of design ideas and t.l.c in the refurbishment. We and City Loft guests really enjoy this unusual property. City Loft is lovely to spend time in but also in a great location for all the city has to offer, so we use it ourselves when we can, and have family stay here when they visit from abroad. The long south facing balcony is a real bonus.
What makes this Apartment unique
We knew this was a new build on top of a lovely old building, in a very handy part of town, but we had no idea what to expect when we went to view it. It is so bright and airy! We got great satisfaction from transforming it from a neglected, unused space into something so unique. It deals very well with guests various needs - for family, friends, business, culture & tourism, short or long lets. It is unexpectedly quiet but in a really convenient location.

Fun, comfortable and just a little cheeky
This apartment is the antithesis of "cookie cutter". Nothing about the place is off the shelf- it's all original in appearance, aesthetic, and you know what's best about it?- it is a happy place- there is a sense of humor evident every where you look. Yes, there are all the things you need for comfort and that. but the joy is in how these things are presented. Monica is a lovely hostess, the apartment is charming. Stay there- you will love it.
Dear Ellen, thank you so much for the fab review. We had great fun designing City Loft & although we obviously had to include what visitors need, we really love hearing when people enjoy our design. Thanks again for booking. Hope to see you again! Best regards, monica & Duncan
Cool, comfortable and well-located
The apartment has a very unique styling, definitely hipper than your average rental. It was well-appointed, we never found anything lacking. We really appreciated that it has two bathrooms, washer/dryer and dishwasher. It is a short walk from the main pedestrian shopping street, and even closer to the lovely little restaurant in the Pyper’s Tryst. It’s also less than 15 mins walking to the two main train stations. We will definitely look to reserve it again next time we are in Glasgow.

Clean, tidy, bright and modern. Good central location
Modern and bright with good central location. The host Monica was really good with the arrangements. Some nice touches like fresh bread and milk. Everything clean and plenty bedding and towels. Would certainly stay again.
