Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Surrounded by canals, quirky houseboats & sunbathing cormorants, this bright, light flat is featured in Time Out's seven most amazing Airbnb's in Manchester (Dec 2019) and as one of the top ten airbnb rentals in Manchester by global travel website 'Culture Trip'
Situated in Ancoats, Manchester's original Little Italy and home to its only Michelin starred restaurant, the flat is also close to the myriad of independent shops, bars and restaurants of the Northern Quarter and the City Centre

The space
The property is an incredibly bright, stylishly furnished one bedroom flat located in a very secure apartment building.

The flat comfortably sleeps two, with a large bright kitchen/living area and has been furnished in a stylish and distinctive way and features large windows that offer spectacular views over the constantly changing skyline of Manchester city centre, I never tire of looking at it.

I provide clean towels, toiletries and also tea, coffee, orange juice and biscuits in case you are feeling peckish on arrival

Guest access
Guest can also access the communal roof terrace. To get to it, stay on the fifth floor and take the door across from the lifts, walk along the corridor, then go up one flight of stairs to the sixth floor, and voila, sorry it sounds a bit complicated but it is very easy

Other things to note
Hi there is no parking attached to the flat but there are numerous carparks nearby and also on street in the surrounding area.
Also like a lot of Manchester there is currently construction work happening across the canal, Monday - Friday from 8am, with the windows shut it is barely noticeable but can be noisy with the windows open

I love the fact this quirky colourful building is right beside several canals, which are full of houseboats, Canada Geese, cormorants and travelling barges. The neighbourhood itself is called Ancoats/New Islington, and was declared one of Britain's coolest neighbourhoods by the Sunday Times in March 2017 and the 27th coolest in the world by Time Out. The whole area is transforming and is now full of restaurants, apartments, bars and creative industries which give it a real buzz. It is also right on the doorstep of the city centre and the Northern Quarter, Manchester's bohemian area, which is full of of vintage shops, galleries, inviting cafes, music venues and lively bars.

And right beside the flat is a great local cafe Cafe Vivid and a great little theatre and bar called the Hope Mill Theatre - (URL HIDDEN)

It is very close to the Velopark, home of the UK's unrivalled cycling team and also the home of Manchester City Football team, the Ethihad stadium

One of the great things about living here is being able to watch the immediate area undergo a huge transformation with old buildings like Stubbs Mill being turned into a creative hub for start up companies as well as new developments like Urban Splash's HoUSe, all helping create a really distinctive neighbourhood.

Among the places you should visit is Rudi's Pizzas which has been voted one of the best in the country.

I'm currently an animation producer in Manchester after years of working ind different parts of the UK and around the world. I really enjoy being able to live here during the week because when I was growing up in the Highlands of Scotland, Manchester was an impossibly cool city packed full of bands like: The Smiths, A Guy called Gerald, Joy Division, ACR and of course Factory Records and the Hacienda so living in this city still feels like a real thrill.
