Overview

About the property

Newly renovated - open plan living area. Comfortable and well furnished

NOTE: If you require somewhere a little bigger with more space to socialise in please check out my absolutley beautiful 4 bedroomed house "Viewfield West End House" which is only a little further out of town (2km) which is only a 20-30min walk/40-50min walk into town along the west end.

Being well travelled for business and pleasure myself both with and without my children I know what it takes to make a place homely for both adults and kids alike and that is my aim for all of our properties, to create a home away from home for all.

This property has been my children's and my home for periods of our lives and I have recently spend significant time here specifically to improve it for guests so meets my very high standards and will be ideal for you and your family/friends to enjoy without anything at all to worry about.

As with all of our properties my objective is to provide somewhere I would want to (and routinely do) stay with my children. Good quality furniture, linen, towels and soft furnishings are provided throughout and brand new Silentnight memory foam mattresses are provided on all beds with mattress protectors always fitted. Which have received excellent reviews from all guests, many people saying it is the best nights sleep they have ever had.

Secure entry (see photo of intercom system to control outside security door) from both front and back doors (back door direct from off road car park behind complex - the flat has one dedicated parking space but can also fit one other car in front of it and not impede anyone else).

Layout is from entering front door; the lobby with coat hanging space, two good sized double bedrooms (with bedside cabinet/lamps, mirrored sliding wardrobes/hangers, ample drawer space in chest of drawers) to the left, bathroom with combination boiler fed mains powered shower over bath straight on and living room and fully equipped dining kitchen to the right.

The whole place is very bright with plenty of windows allowing natural light in. Main living space was recently opened up with natural wood flooring laid to form a lovely modern open plan kitchen, dining and lounge space. This forms a great communal and interactive area to dine, socialise and relax in.

Lounge has a comfortable cream leather sofa with solid oak coffee and side tables. Double sofa bed provides additional seating. Wall mounted Panasonic TV with Freeview channels, DVD player, and Apple compatible (WhatHIFI 5 star rated) Denon RCD-M39DAB micro music system (to link your iPhone, etc to/play CDs) and (WhatHIFI 5 star rated) Q Acoustics 2010i speakers for chilled out evenings in.

Kitchen has fully integrated full size 50:50 fridge freezer, full size dishwasher, electric hob, oven, microwave, kettle, cafeteria and toaster. Also has washer/drier (with detergent) concealed in cupboard with iron/ironing board, cleaning products/utensils. It is very well equipment with good range or pans, casserole dishes, slow cooker, etc. The dining table sits 4 and trays are also provided. A handysitt (hooks over the top of a normal chair and has padding and a strap to retain the child to perform the function of a high chair but is more portable and easier to store) can also be provided on request. It is handy if you're going anywhere, please feel free to take it around with you if you're visiting friends and family but obviously leave it before you departure!

Although breakfast is not provided a selection of tea, coffee, sugar etc is provided.

Dyson DC25 vacuum cleaner and 2200w hairdryer are also provided.

There are double beds in each relatively large bedroom, each able to sleep 2 persons and a double sofa bed in the living area which could also sleep 2 persons therefore the maximum capacity is 6 adults. Each bedroom has brand new 80% wool mix dark grey carpets and black out curtains as well as blinds to ensure a great nights sleep. There is also built in sliding mirrored wardrobe doors, chest of drawers and bedside cabinets/lights in each bedroom so there is plenty of storage for those wanting to stay longer durations with more personal belongings.

A travel cot, with 7cm mattress topper for adequate comfort and one fitted sheet will be provided to allow for a great nights sleep for one very young guest! Note apart from the provision of fitted sheets for the cot no bedding is provided with the travel cot, this would have to be provided by guests.

Warm, comfortable flat in central location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment has everything that you could possibly need for a wonderful stay. It is very clean, warm and comfortable. It is very close to the city centre, but it is also very easy to escape the city to enjoy the gorgeous beaches and wonderful countryside.

Colin is a wonderful host and provides a very good service. He was on hand to answer any query we had.

I would highly recommend this apartment.

Owner's Response: Hi Barbara, many thanks for booking with us again and for leaving the place spotless when you left! It is really pleasing that the apartment provided everything you needed to experience a wonderful stay again! I am so glad it was warm and I have passed your comments about it being clean onto our amazing cleaner! I'm delighted that the central location of the apartment worked for you to explore the city and countryside form the free off road parking spot that comes with the apartment! Many thanks for the kind words about myself as host and for highly recommending our apartment. It will be great to see you again at either the apartment, or our house (only about a mile form the apartment) for a bit more space if needed, next time you are in Aberdeen. Kind regards. Colin. Owner/Manager.

Spacious, clean and ideally located! Landlord was particularly helpful :)

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay for a break in Aberdeen. The owner was particularly helpful and flexible with organising the booking and answering all our questions. The house rules document made everything very clear about getting in and where everything was. Plenty of utilities including a hair drier which saves on baggage space. Apartment is centrally located, clean and spacious. Would definitely book again!! Thanks for a great stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Koby, Thanks for the excellent review about our apartment and the kind words about myself as a host; I try to put myself out for all guests to ensure they are as happy as they can be when at our place. As with all of our properties my objective is to provide somewhere I would want to (and routinely do) stay with my children. We consistently get positive comments about the cleanliness and I will pass yours onto my cleaner. All beds in all of our properties have brand new Silentnight memory foam mattresses with mattress protectors always fitted. Many people saying it is the best nights sleep they have ever had. The shower is a mains fed (direct from the combi boiler - immediate hot water) power shower with good quality shower valve and I agree it is a great shower. Bye for now and it would be great to see you next time you are in town. Regards Colin Owner/Manager

About Colin

Hi,

All of our properties are or have been home for significant times of our lives, we still visit and stay at them all which is a great way of ensuring any issues no matter how small are identified and resolved. So you can be guaranteed I am doing my very best to ensure they meet my high very standards, well maintained with excellent quality fittings, furniture and cleanliness so will be ideal for you and your family/friends to enjoy without anything at all to worry about. They are all somewhere I would want to stay with my children.

Being well travelled for business and pleasure myself both with and without my children I know what it takes to make a place homely for both adults and kids alike and that is my aim for all of our properties, to create a home away from home for all.

After being a traditional landlord since 2004 with our Aberdeen apartment I began welcoming short term guests in August 2016 to better fit my lifestyle and now managing my properties is my sole source of income and I have developed a real passion for it.

I live between Aberdeen and South Shields so I am able to keep a close eye on my properties and ensure they have an impeccable standard of maintenance, furnishing and decor as well as cleanliness. I also know both areas really well so am keen to help any guests with queries they have about the local area and find all the best spots for the purpose of their visits.

I pride myself on being helpful and friendly and it is nice to hear this is how guests have found me in the reviews for all of our properties.

If you choose to stay at any of our homes I am sure you will love your time there.

Good luck. Colin

Colin purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Colin chose Aberdeen

You have the entire apartment, including the free parking space in the off street car park (much of central Aberdeen is permit only, including the front street). There is also a small lawn out the back which I often use to dry clothes in the summer (although the washer drier can also dry clothes!). Note that this had been my home in the past so has a very home from home feel. I have spend time here with my two children so you are guaranteed that it will be comfortable and meet my very high standards. Please feel free to enjoy the selection of DVDs, board games and books during your stay.

You are guaranteed that it will be comfortable as it meets my very high standards and we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do and treat it with the same respect as we do. Please message if interested or if you have any special requirements. Many thanks and good luck. Colin

What makes this apartment unique

You will see once you come!

The apartment consistently is enjoyed by guest after guest; space, facilities, comfort, cleanliness, power shower, location, it really has it all!). It got such a homely feel and we get so much feedback (see photos) the proof is in the guest book!

If you book we will do all we can to ensure you have a great stay.

Car: not necessary

Less than ten minutes walk to West end of Union Street (main shopping street). The apartment is also brilliantly located for bus links into town and to the airport. Buses run very regularly from both Great Western Road and Union Grove which are only a few mins walk away to take you to the far end of union street/bus and train station. Alternatively if you fancy a stroll these are only about a 15-20 min walk. One dedicated free parking space but can also fit one other car in front of it and not impede anyone else (see photo).

Situated centrally in the west end but in a really safe and quiet street with ample car parking. The bedrooms do not back onto a road which makes for a great nights sleep. The apartment is close enough for city based shops and offices and also for a busier night out in the city centre or for the many excellent more upmarket restaurants and bars of the west end. Also cool inde shops and cafes on our street (Claremont St - Long Dog Cafe, great if you are dog lovers and premium luxury retailer, Curated Stories, Aberdeens premium luxury retailer - my daughter is addicted to the place!) and St Swithins Street (Cafe Cognito, Coppa) are just round the corner. There are ample amenities nearby, a great wee corner shop "The Grove" stocking a good range of local fresh produce, and a pharmacy on Union Grove; 2-3 mins walk away. A Sainsburys mini market, award winning Ashvale fish and chip take away/restaurant, and many shops, restaurants etc are a similar distance away on Holburn Street. There is a handy "Spar" mini market shop a few minutes walk away on St Swithins street also. I will do my best to make guests feel at home and provide as much information as I can on the area as they wish gained from the 15 years since Aberdeen has been home. Would also recommend the amazing New Orleans styled "Maggies Grill" Aberdeen's first and original soul food neighbourhood chow down eatery; they do a great breakfast and indeed any meal of the day and is only a 10 minute walk away!!
