Hi all will just post this if anyone is interested, A apartment has come up from a friend of mine, it is advertised and can send the link if anyone is interested. It is in Sabutalo 1 bed rooms downstairs, small kitchen bathroom and large lounge/bedroom upstairs with a balcony with a great view. There is a yard to lounge in and parking space for a car, and fruits from the garden, internet and a crappy TV.
The owner lives on site and is very un intrusive but a very nice fellow. If you do not drive it is a 10 min walk from Kandalaki street up Tashkenti street. Quite a steep climb but great views from the balcony.
The owner has some English skills but is fluent in German.
