I’m away at point during the summer and would love for someone to enjoy my room in the meantime. Sun comes in in the mornings. The bed is lovely to sleep and lounge around in.
With Kelvingrove Park on the left and Finnieston on the right our tenement flat is a gem. Nice cafes, bars, shops and restaurants round the corner from here. Walk through the park to reach Glasgow Uni and the West End in 10-15 minutes, or walk East and reach the city centre in 15.

The space

In the bedroom there isn’t much furniture, just a bed and an inbuilt wardrobe that I will empty. A few surfaces for water, a charging phone, water and books. Sun comes in in the morning, making the beginning of each day beautiful. There are both orthopaedic and normal pillows for a good night’s sleep.
For the mornings we have a stovetop coffee-maker, and feel free to share our breakfast supplies, including eggs, bread, jam, porridge oats, muesli and fruit (depending on the day). There is a selection of teas in the cupboard. Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Roots and Fruits, a greengrocer and health food shop, are just around the corner. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking: oils, sauces, spices; pasta and rice.
Turning right from the front door you have Finnieston: an area full of new celebrated restaurants and bars, sitting alongside well-established Indian and Chinese eateries and traditional pubs. Many have outdoor seating for sunny afternoons and evenings. Following Argyle or Sauchiehall street you will shortly reach the M8, across from which is the city centre.
Turning left from the front door you face an entrance to Kelvingrove Park. From the hill you can watch the sun set over the medieval towers of Glasgow University. Feel free to borrow a quilt and some plates and cutlery for a picnic. There is a playground, tables with inbuilt barbecues, a skate park and a Victorian fountain, etc. Just across the park from us is the Common Guild, a visual arts organisation, open Wednesday to Sunday.
Walking along the river you come to the heart of the West End: coffee shops, restaurants, charity, vintage and antique shops and two jewels of second-hand bookstores (tucked away on Otago Lane). If you follow the park path along the river you come to the Peat Inn, where you can sit at a table watching the river Kelvin flow below. Endless dogs congregate here with their humans, all enjoying the fresh air and a beverage.

Other things to note

As we live here, please expect a visit rather than a hotel stay. We like to keep things tidy, nevertheless the flat is old and lived in. There are many books, magazines and zines we would love to share with you. If you are into plants, we would appreciate hearing any tips!
Sunny days are a much appreciated treat in Glasgow, yet the cloudy or rainy ones are lovely too. We have umbrellas in case you need one.
Feel free to use the speakers in the bedroom. We will provide you with towels. The bathroom has soap, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss, make-up remover, cotton pads and sun screen for you to use.

I had a lovely stay! Miranda was very warm, helpful and friendly. The flat is in a fab location too. I'd highly recommend staying with Miranda and Nastja again.

Miranda checked us in and was there to help with any questions we had, however, you can also consult the lovely guest house guide Nastja and Miranda drew themselves. The room and apartment is all very spacious. It's an arty and crafty space with lots of character. It's not necessarily for every guest since it can feel quirky, but it was lovely for us. The apartment is well located near the park and the university. Downtown Glasgow was a bit further away, but it's still within walking distance.

My partner and I had a wonderful time in this place. It was really well located for getting about by walking to the main things we wanted to do Really liked the unique decor of the flat and it had a welcoming feel so we felt comfortable there. The private bedroom was very nice and spacious. Good communication, which made it an easy trip and got lots of recommendations

We had a lovely stay in Miranda and Nastja's flat. There was great communication from start to finish, and Miranda's welcome at check in made us feel right at home. The flat is full of character, with lots of found objects and pieces of art. The room is spacious and comfortable and relatively quiet considering how close to amenities it is. Finnieston is a great place to base yourself in Glasgow, with some of the best restaurants in town and parks, city centre and the Westend all close by.

Miranda was a terrific host, communication was fluid since the beginning and even we didn't get to meet her, she arranged everything for our stay to be perfect and she gave us lots of tips! The room is beautiful, in a lovely street close to the park and a great area with many restaurants and lots of coffee places. The city center is very near too. We had a great time!

Hello! We are two postgrad students at the Glasgow School of Art, studying Fine Art and Design. We love going to the many art shows and events that Glasgow has to offer, and projecting films in the living room. We've both used Airbnb ourselves when travelling, in Berlin, Amsterdam and New York City - so would love to return the favour! We're looking forward to meeting you.
