This was my and my children's first home for over 10 years and due to its really spacious nature you could not have a better place to stay and enjoy gatherings with family and friends. We are lucky enough to be the properties only second owners since it was built from Aberdeens' famous granite just after the second world war ended. The only previous owner was the architect and son of the builder who built these lovely homes. His wife informed me when I purchased the house 13 years ago that he selected this great corner plot to be their family home, which gets plenty sun in the garden for most of the day and overlooks the beautiful and tranquil Johnston Gardens from the back of the house, conservatory and two large decking areas which between them get the sun during the whole day in the summer.
Significant renovations and updating has taken place to modernise including; fully rewired, new boiler and radiator system, double glazed doors and windows throughout, new raised conservatory, kitchen/dining room extended, large multi-fuel stove, bedrooms enlarged, new ensuite and cloakrooms formed and new family bathroom installed. New carpets throughout. And renovated the swimming pool (NOTE 1: the pool will not be operational or accessible to guests).
Being at the end of a very quiet and open spaced street and at the cul-de-sac there is minimal passing traffic and only cars you see are those of our lovely neighbours. My kids grew up in this house and it is as safe a road as you could get for them to be around given the very low traffic volume.

All of our properties are or have been home for significant times of your 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 form 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 (where my children are based and I lived for 15 years) and South Shields (my hometown) 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 relate 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 our Aberdeen apartment (scoring 4.8/5 and improving all the time) and more recently our lovely Aberdeen 4 bed house (scoring 5/5). I am sure visitors to our newly listed South Shields (4 minutes walk to metro into Newcastle, 20 mins walk to coast) 4 bed apartment will find it just as impressive a place to stay at when we start welcoming guests there as well.
In summary am deeply passionate about all of our homes and want to keep improving on our already excellent reputation of offering excellent accommodation at affordable competitive prices whilst having a customer service second to none.
Unlike many other Airbnb listings I charge for cleaning as it is done very thoroughly (see my reviews) by professionals. My Aberdeen properties are cleaned and hand over duties completed by a team who I trust who have impeccable standards and my South Shields property is handled by highly respected Gleam Queen Cleaning Services who come highly recommended by various friends who they have worked for long term.
In keeping with Airbnb being a personal booking site, a little about my hobbies; my other hobbies are general exploring and mooching both home and abroad, walking, cycling, guitar, and singing. And my biggest achievement are my two great kids.
If you choose to stay at any of our homes I am sure you will love your time there.
