Interaction with Guests
I will show you where everything is, check you are ok with locks and security of house and let you get on with your stay. Some days I work in my home office, others I'm out but am usually contactable by mobile phone. Sometimes my boyfriend stays (he may also occasionally use my office space). Please do not feel I am being rude or non communicative if I am working! Home is my Head Office.
Nice neighbours, a quiet road (cul de sac) just off a friendly and social street!

Other Things to Note
Help yourself to tea and coffee. Cupboard and fridge/freezer space available if you wish to buy some food while you stay.
I work freelance, some days from my office in my house so this is to be respected.
Use of kitchen offered (please wash up after!). Please cook before 9pm.
Security - lock door if you are the last to leave the house and close your bedroom window. Burglars love open windows and insurance companies don't pay out!!
Generally all I ask is that you keep everything clean and don't wake me up! I will let you get on with your visit.
Excellent location on a quiet cul-de-sac, but still within walking distance to all the amenities of Southsea. Lesley was a great host who gave tips on what to see and do in the area. Everything was clean and tidy; the room was large and the bed was comfy. Would definitely stay here again.
Lesley welcomed me into her home like a long-lost friend. Cheerful, interesting, gregarious and very welcoming, Lesley is the perfect host. Her house is in a very quiet area - ideal for me - and the room was very comfortable.
Highly recommended !
Lesley is a really lovely person! She advised me where to go, when. Her place is exactly as the pictures say. It's neat and clean. I felt like at home! I would definitely recommend her! :)
Lesley was a great host and a really good person to chat with. Really comfortable bed and stylish bedroom.
Lesley met us, at our convenience, was welcoming and attentive. Our room and the rest of the house were clean and tidy and she kindly allowed us to sit in her lovely peaceful little garden with our son who we were visiting and enjoy the last of the days sun with a beer. No complaints
Leslie is a lovely host and very helpful, with great local knowledge and lots of tips of where to eat and drink. Her house was really nice and in a great location for Albert road and all its pubs ,cafes and eateries. And a short distance from the sea, we really enjoyed our stay .
