Interakcija s gostima
I work full time but make myself available to answer questions you have about the area and the property. I aim to provide a welcoming and friendly home from home, where guests can relax and feel at ease. I am very happy to help with information and to chat, but also to respect your privacy if you prefer. My partner Michael sometimes works from the house. We are pretty quiet people and working professionals , so we appreciate the same of our guests.
This is my home suitable for an adult single guest or couple here for a visit or for work. It is not a hostel-style place or a hotel, so I expect that our guests respect they are a guest in my home with shared spaces . Please read through the house rules to confirm you are OK with them before making a booking . These are practical and sensible & I wouldn't want you to find these do not agree with your expectations during your trip.
For instance , I don't allow guest's visitors that are not booked via Airbnb. My home is also not suitable for children.
I can only accept reservations from guests who have a verified official ID (passport/ driver's licence/ government ID card), and have posted at least a recent headshot on their profile and some information about themselves. I do not take 3rd party bookings.
The price for the room is very reasonable and I also offer an automatically applied discount for those who stay for a month or more. There is an extra charge for a second guest.
The cleaner is usually in on Tuesdays, so do not be alarmed if you see someone tidying your room on that day.
My partner Michael often stays with me, & helps me manage the house.
There is a security camera in front room of the house pointed towards the window & front door for added safety.
The room is on the 1st floor. I recommend you are happy to & capable of carrying your suitcases up 1 flight of stairs.
If you are coming in before check-in or need to leave bags to browse round London post-checkout time, it's best to store your things in Left Luggage at the train stations, as we don't have bag storage and be respectful of the next guest.
There are specific locking instructions as there are patio doors to consider, as safety is paramount.
Generally I'm pretty easy going & reasonable. I want our guests to feel comfortable & at home, but also respectful that they are a guest in my house, not a hotel.

I work in fashion and love good design , travelling to explore new cultures, and music. My favourite thing to do is long walks in the country on a nice day. I love living in Stoke Newington, London because of Clissold Park and the Clissold Leisure centre, where I can go for a swim. I often meet friends in nearby Dalston, Shoreditch and Camden for a drink. My partner Michael is a musician so we enjoy a night out at a gig.
