Other things to note
PLEASE NOTE: The apartment is my home, but I travel abroad a fair amount, so I try to keep my possessions minimal and store most neatly away. Things left out are available to enjoy such as my travel books, CDs and arty coffee table books. I leave all basic cooking ingredients such as spices, oil and vinegar in the kitchen making it easy for you to enjoy real cooking here.
KEYS: You can collect the keys from a key-safe (I'll send you the combination code a few days before you arrive). Please return the keys to the key-safe when you leave (if you lose the keys I'm afraid I will have to charge you for having to change the locks). If you forget you can mail the keys back to me (but I will charge £5 for inconvenience because it really is a pain!).
CLEANING CHARGE: Although this seems a lot it is just a bit less than the amount it costs me to pay to both to get the bed linen and towels laundered and a cleaner to change the linen and do a 'sparkle clean' in 2 hours. Please note that though you are paying for cleaning - 2 hours is not enough to do a serious tidy up or deep clean so I still expect the place to be left basically clean and tidy. Please do so if you want to recieve a good review from me.
No smoking (except on the balcony, but please don't leave butts out there).
Not suitable for music parties. Please be considerate of my neighbours with not excessive noise levels and not too late.

I work as a freelance consultant in the field of group communication and progressive co-operation. I've worked freelance now for over 10 years and am lucky enough to be in a business that allows me to pursue new developments and my own particular interests. I'm a frequent traveller myself, I go for short trips to Europe in the Summer and long trips to SE Asia in the winter (when I let my whole apartment out through AirBnB). I love the sea, so it's a great pleasure to me to live in an apartment where I can look at the sea sitting on my sofa and pop down to be right next to it in just 1 minute. I really enjoy living in Brighton with it's vibrant alternative culture and arts scene. I also love good food, a good book and to get out walking and just being out in nature. I believe in living a good life, contributing to the wellbeing of the world, being open to (and seeking) new experiences and being as fully present in each moment as I can.
