Interaction with guestsMy guests are very important to me. I will do my very best to make them comfortable and to give them what they want. I interact with James, a very reliable very capable coordinator, who sees to the cleaning and preparation of the flat before and after the guests and also during their stay if they have any special requirements or need to contact him. I live in Italy, but work in very close contact through internet.

perfect location
Flat was located very centrally, and everything we needed. Margaret and Lorraine were very helpful during the booking period and during our stay. You do not need a car as the bus station is across the road, and there is also a car hire office if you want travel out of town.

Great location! Perfect size for couple.
I was able to to find the flat as soon as I arrived in Dundee. The house keeper was amazing and I loved the art on the walls. Perfect place to hide on a rainy day, with all the comforts and necessities of home. If I ever make it back to Dundee I wouldn't hesitate to stay here.

lovely decorated flat in excellent location
I stayed here at the beginning of November. What a discovery indeed! The bright airy newly-decorated flat is on the first floor of a listed building. I felt at home there as it is central and comfortable. Very helpful caretaker and impeccable cleaner! Margaret, the owner who lives in Italy, was very efficient and gave me all the information I needed. Lots of things to do in Dundee! I really loved it! Excellent price and value.
