A bright single room in a comfortable flat in Glasgow's bohemian West End, located in a quiet, leafy street. Convenient for transport, with easy access to the city and to the local bars, cafes, galleries, theatres... Beautiful communal gardens!

The space

My bright, comfortable flat has many lovely traditional features: high, ornate ceilings, large lounge with bay window and stained glass panels. There's also a small flower-filled front garden, and beautiful communal gardens right opposite, open to visitors to use. The listing is for a single room for one person.

Guest access

You'll be sharing bathroom and kitchen facilities with me, and have access to the communal lounge. You're welcome to help yourself to basic foodstuffs: coffee, tea, milk, bread, cereal, etc, and to cook if you'd like to: there's a microwave if you need to eat and run, but feel free to eat at the dining table in the bright bay window in the lounge. Or if it's sunny (fingers crossed) take a coffee and a book out on to the front porch, or over to the leafy gardens right opposite the flat - you can even borrow the BBQ from the back garden if you want to take it over and have a picnic. There's also free wireless broadband, TV with freeview channels, dvd player, etc in the lounge, and a dvd player in the bedroom.

Interaction with guests

I'll be here throughout your stay, and will be there to welcome you with keys, etc and I'm happy to help out with advice on getting around and on other things to see and do in our fantastic city. I've been an Airbnb guest myself and I know people have different preferences, so you're welcome to join me in the living room - but you don't need to be sociable if you don't want to... I'm a writer, so there will be times when I'm closeted with the laptop, but I'll always be happy to help with any questions you might have.

Other things to note

There's one other resident in the flat: a large, fat, friendly cat who spends most of his day asleep, and who will happily colonise your lap if you let him.

Linda is a lovely Glasgow hostess: warm and welcoming with communication clear and easy right from the time of booking. Her gracious and easy going manner made it quite comfortable for me to be sharing her home. The room and living room have a beautiful sunny view onto gardens; home location is up-beat and quiet and within easy access of bus, subway and some top galleries. Lively, creative, interested and well-informed, Linda is able to point her guests in the right direction of any interests they might have.

Linda was a great host, she was very helpful, informative and a very kind and nice host indeed. she even went so far as to leave some delicious soup on the stove for me when i arrived back one evening which was very thoughtful indeed and greatly appreciated. her home is delightful and the photos dont quite capture the beauty of this wonderful building, which is in a great location with a idyllic little residential park right outside the door. the room was excellent comfortable, very clean and very homely and tasteful. to be quite honest Lindas home is fantastic from the wonderfully large and bright living room, to the large very clean bathroom through to the very well equipped kitchen. i would not hesitate to recommend Lindas hospitality and home to anyone, and would like to thank linda once again for making my trip to see friends that bit more memorable.

Linda was a great host. Very welcoming and willing to share her home for the short time I was there. She offered me maps and even asked what I wanted for breakfast! She even went as far as to buy vegemite for me! I really enjoyed our chats and I would encourage everyone to stay with Linda. The house is beautifully kept and I appreciated spending time with Chico the cat! Her place is in a great location and she is a truly lovely person to be around. If you're thinking of a stay in Glasgow, this is where you should go!

I had really great time staying at Linda's place. She is a kind, generous, cheery and delightful host who will go out of her way to make your stay a very pleasant one. The room she provides is bright, clean and filled with lovely photos and art mementos that will make you feel right at home. Being located in the West End, you won't have to walk far to have access to either public transportation or the enticing local cafes and pubs around the neighbourhood. And if you're not sure where to start your exploration of the city, Linda will give you great suggestions on what to do and where to go. So if you're looking for a wonderful place to stay while you're in Glasgow, I would highly recommend Linda as your host. Merci beaucoup Linda!

I loved staying with Linda, once again I felt totally at home in her gorgeous & colourful home. Linda is a very relaxed & easy going host & the two times I've stayed with her & Chico the cat have helped make my return to Glasgow s most memorable one. Thank you Linda! I wouldn't hesitate to book again if I ever return or recommend others choose Linda's colourful cosy room in the hip Glasgow West End!

I'm an actor and writer, based in Scotland, but work wherever they'll pay me. I spend time in Spain when I can. I've been an Airbnb guest a couple of times - in Sydney and Spain - and have really enjoyed it, so I'm looking forward to welcoming guests to my own flat in Glasgow. As a host I'm pretty easy-going, and I'm happy to chat with you or leave you to your own devices, whatever you prefer. Like most Glaswegians, I'm proud of our fantastic city and I'll be happy to advise on things to see and do during your stay, and to point you in the direction of the best bars and restaurants.

I like good fiction, favourite authors: Steinbeck, Iain McEwan, Iain Banks, Louise Welsh, Maggie O'Farrell; I love some of the brilliant US drama around at the moment especially Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Dexter, The Wire, plus I'm addicted to The Big Bang Theory.

The other resident in the flat, a large, fat cat called Chico, is also welcoming to guests - he will co-opt you as a new and comfortable cushion if you allow him to. NB You are not required to allow him to :-)
