We spent 5 nights here. The house is well appointed, comfortable & homely. The location is great to access the city by tram & easy access to the motorways. David is very friendly & available to assist with his local knowledge

“Home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Boutique Mews Cottage is absolutely fabulous!! After staying in plenty of rentals by owner over the past 10 years, this one is on the top of the list. David has created a very comfortable, clean and cozy space, it actually felt like home. Nothing was missing, the architectural design and details were outstanding and the entire house was fully equipped from the kitchen to the bath. Location is also great, plenty of shops and restaurants all within walking distance. David was very accommodating and made the entire stay very easy. This will always be the first choice when I find myself in Manchester.

“Looking forward to going back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I was delighted that my friends and visitors,the Barras Family,stayed at 129 Didsbury for 5 nights in August 2013.They confirm the following - 'The property is absolutely beautiful and the kids fell in love with it at once. It is perfectly kitted out in every room and was very comfortable and pretty quiet despite being not far from a couple of quite busy roads.
The proximity to West Didsbury shops and cafes was great. You can literally walk 30 yards and there is the most wonderful café doing amazing breakfasts. Another 50 yards and there is a very well stocked Co-op and a number of other shops ,bars, restaurants and cafes.
A bit further up the high street is the tram stop which takes you straight into Manchester.
There are walks and runs nearby (car not needed) and a host of other things to do. The parking, with enough space for two cars, was very convenient and felt very secure, the proximity of a large police station probably contributing to that somewhat.
The owners live very close by and David was very welcoming and extremely helpful throughout our stay.
129 Didsbury really was a very comfortable and convenient place from which to explore Manchester and we would be very happy to return.'
I am very happy that my friends liked this fantastic property so much and thank David for all his help arranging this, he was very straight forward to deal with.
Many thanks, The Barras family and Clare.

“Superbly designed and well equipped house, ideal for small family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Great location in suburban Manchester with shops, bars and quality restaurants a stone's throw away. The property itself is immaculate and equipped with top quality houseware from top to bottom. The move-in and move-out was straight-forward if and when we are next in Manchester we will not hesitate to book again should it be available. Full marks on each and every basis.
