Meet The Jacks

Here’s our story

We are two cousins with a shared passion for adventure, quirky stays, and the environment.

After staying the night in some weird and wonderful places around the world, we set out to bring it home to North Ayrshire.

We’ve decided that glamping is old news, and we’re on a mission to create a space for unique and unforgettable travel experiences.

Meet Daniel

Hey! I’m Daniel, and I make up one half of the cousin duo behind Jack’s Alt-Stays.

I’ve stayed in some pretty weird and wonderful places around the world, including a Santa Monica AirBnB beachhouse and a shepherd’s hut in some guys driveway in Glencoe. Yeah, really.

I love playing drums in my indie-rock band, telling stories through film and, of course, dogs – I have a 7-year old Labrador called Rudi.  I’ve also become much more environmentally aware over the last few years.

Meet Adam

Hello folks, my name is Adam, the younger (and slightly better looking) cousin.

I love my music, playing basketball, and our amazing home country of Scotland. Whether it’s scenic walks or bagging Munros, you’ll likely find me out enjoying the great outdoors.

I’m also a road trip and staycation enthusiast who loves a good night away in an Airbnb.

During Daniel’s final year of uni, we began working on creating a concept that’s sure to shake up Scotland’s tourist accommodation game.
