Our home

Our home is a comfortable, clean, Victorian mid-terraced home, set over three levels. We have a large living room with two sofas, a television, wii and DVD player, a back sitting room with a sofa and computing area, a dining kitchen with all modern appliances (which can seat 8), a brand new bathroom with two sinks, bath, shower and WC, a new shower room with WC and sink, a children's bedroom with bunk, television and games console, a smaller child's bedroom, a large master bedroom, and an attic double bedroom with velux windows and a wc. The garden has children's play equipment, a decked area, a patio and children's bicycles. We have friendly, helpful neighbours. A seven seater car is an option.
We have now enjoyed two wonderful exchanges to France, and another to Oxfordshire.

Who we are

  1. My name is Alister and my wife's name is Karen. I am a primary teacher and Karen is a part-time lecturer in Media and English Literature. We enjoy family life greatly, and have three well-behaved boys (ages 5,9 and 12) whom you can see pictured with us in a restaurant. We are a very active couple and spend a lot of time playing tennis, running, gardening and socialising. We love our home and endeavour to make all our guests feel welcome. We will, in turn, treat your home with great care and respect.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Situated in a suburban area of the fashionable West End of Glasgow, our house is a great base for exploring all that this lovely, historical city has to offer- thousands of interesting places to visit: free museums and art galleries, wonderful restaurants, theatres, nightlife and fabulous shopping. Glasgow is Scotland's largest city and is a friendly, bustling town with stunning 19th-century buildings. The city's buses, railway and subway system make it easy to explore. We`re a 3 minute walk from a railway station from where trains take less than 10 mins to the city centre. Edinburgh can then be reached in under an hour, making day trips to the capital very easy. Glasgow airport is about 7 miles away. Furthermore, going west out of the city, Loch Lomond can be easily reached in 20 mins, and 45 mins north are the beautiful Trossachs and Loch Lomond National Park with hillwalking, fishing and watersports. Inverness and Loch Ness can be reached in about three hours. There are transport links to all the ferries to access the beautiful Western Isles from Glasgow. Jordanhill is a very desirable, quiet suburb of Glasgow with a friendly atmosphere. There are beautiful parks within walking distance. There is an excellent modern public gym/sports centre 12 minutes walk away with a swimming pool. Within 10 mins walk (2 mins drive) there`s a large retail park and supermarket. Overall our home is ideally located for access to both city and countryside.
