Accommodation for professionals in Dumfries and Castle Douglas – luxury rooms for rent.
We are a long-established business providing top-quality accommodation for professional people at affordable prices.
We endeavour to achieve hotel quality standards for the price of a house share rental, striving to be the best in Dumfriesshire. We are fully accredited by the Landlord’s Association of Scotland.
We specialise solely in fully furnished shared accommodation - currently a few double ensuite rooms with French windows to car park could be used as single occupancy self-contained units (with microwave and kettle).
Other houses have the number of housemates limited to 1 upwards (and our larger houses with more than one kitchen have currently been split into smaller dwellings for biosecurity reasons) .
Currently we have several vacancies due to people returning to families and are only taking health professionals, other NHS employees or anyone working on the Coronavirus effort as we think it's irresponsible to encourage others to move. In some houses, there are some existing tenants in other occupations. They are following our strict biosecurity measures.
There is a full-time manager and we provide 24-hour emergency cover for out-of-hours emergencies.
Also included in the rental fee:
House bills (including Council Tax, TV licence and fibre-optic wifi)
· Fully furnished rooms
Cleaning (although everyone is responsible for this just now)
Our properties are decorated tastefully to a high standard, with modern furniture. They are warm, comfortable and well-maintained.
Each house has ample shared spaces, with at least one spacious fully fitted kitchen and comfortable sitting rooms . Most have private parking and bicycle storage. One house even comes with a separate mini gym and games room!
Most houses are situated within, or very close to, the town centres. Our properties are either modern or beautifully restored listed buildings which have been upgraded to a high specification and level of comfort.
The majority of bedrooms have full en-suite facilities however, a few have shared bath/shower rooms (shared with a minimal number of people).
We have spare furniture in store so can provide whatever you request at the start of the tenancy e.g desk and chair, sofa.
We take the safety of our properties and tenants seriously and all houses comply with current legislation and fire safety legislation. Fire safety inspections are done weekly to ensure continued compliance.
We understand the importance of having great neighbours and we carefully vet all prospective tenants to ensure that they fit in with our existing housemates and so that each property offers a peaceful and friendly home.
Our residents are professionals of a variety of ages – under normal circumstances, we will also consider sensible students, and we have rooms suitable for couples. Short-term rentals are always considered.
The owners, Alan and Juliet, the manager, Jill, and the rest of our team welcome any inquiries and invite you to view rooms in as many of the properties as you like without any commitment to rent a room (viewings are currently being restricted due to Covid 19)
Landlord registration number 83834/170/21530
