About Dave

I have lived in York since 2000 and know the City well. We have a buzzing music scene, plenty of great restaurants and pubs, as well as a wonderful history and culture, most of which I have experienced for myself :)

My family and I wish you a lovely stay and are happy to answer questions and provide information to make your trip more enjoyable!

Dave purchased this apartment in 2007

Nice but not peaceful

  • 3 of 5

The flat itself was quite nice in terms of location and amenities, but be aware that there is another holiday rental directly above, and every footstep and

conversation is transmitted quite audibly through the floor. We were awakened at midnight every night when the tenants upstairs entered after a night on the town. Also, the clothes washer filled up with dirty water at intervals, so take care not to leave clothes in after washing them.

Owner's Response: Hi Will. The washing machine issue is now fixed (May 2017). In addition work has been done to soundproof the bedroom (October 2017). Thank you, Dave :)

Beautiful apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two children (ages 12 and 13), and I loved staying in this cosy York apartment. The apartment was very conveniently located. We could walk to the sites we wanted to visit in York, including Yorkminster, the Transport Museum, the city walls, etc. The apartment was very clean and well-maintained and very nicely decorated. Dave, the host, did a wonderful job communicating with us. Access to the apartment was very easy. Dave provided wonderful customer service. After we left, we realized that my daughter had misplaced her bag of books We sent Dave a message, and he went to the trouble to go to the apartment to see if the missing books were there. We would definitely stay here again.

Tolle Lage und gute Ausstattung

  • 4 of 5

Das Apartment punktet vor allem mit seiner exzellenten Lage in der Nähe des Stadtzentrums. Alles kann bequem erlaufen werden. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind ebenfalls in unmittelbarer Nähe vorhanden. Zudem verfügt das Apartment über einen eigenen Parkplatz und ist gut ausgestattet. Alles war gut vorbereitet und die Kommunikation mit dem Vermieter Dave völlig unkompliziert.
