The house is a friendly and relaxed space and I’d love for our home to feel a home away from home for guests. Looking forward to meeting you!

During your stay
Work commitments are not on a fixed timetable and I also have a rather hectic social life so generally come and go throughout the day and evening.

If guests prefer solitude, as I do sometimes, I understand and respect people’s need for privacy, space, and enjoying time to themselves. However, please feel free to join us for breakfast, lunch or dinner, a coffee, or a craft beer at your leisure. Perhaps we could share the good, the bad, and the ugly of our travelling adventures.

Guests will be provided with maps and public transport information. I’m also happy to offer advice, provide information, and assist in any way I can so that you can experience and enjoy the greatest city in the world and all its wonders – I’m a little biased!
