Whilst staying in the flat, I ask that you treat my home with respect and care. There is a fully equipped kitchen and please feel free to use anything that you wish. There is also space in the fridge for you to store your food and a shelf in the cupboard on the left of the cooker. I expect guests to clean up after themselves when using the kitchen.

Also always ensure that you double lock the door when you leave the flat. I live in a residential area and ask that guests refrain from late night parties whilst staying. There are plenty of local clubs, bars and venues to keep the party going away from home.
Through the back door and down the fire escape you will find the communal back yard, a lovely place to relax in greenery and peace, despite being in the centre of the city! Two of the green metal chairs and one of the green metal tables is mine and can be used at any time. The neighbours with the other metal table set live just across the fire escape and are super friendly. Please do not use any of the wooden tables and chairs in the back yard and always remember to bolt the back door when you return to the flat.
If you are staying for over a week, a cleaner will visit to clean the communal areas and bedroom. If after a week you wish to have your sheets and towels changed please do let me know!
About the Host, Chloe
I am a passionate and creative individual, working locally to support young adults to reach their full potential through drama and the arts. I love travelling and am so excited to have people from all over the world come and stay in my flat and enjoy the best of what London has to offer. I am currently living with my boyfriend Jace who is a part-time mechanic and bike enthusiast.
I am a keen reader and writer and you will see my room is wallpapered by my favourite books. We love to cook and whenever possible eat al fresco with friends.
I love beautiful images and am equally inspired in the open countryside or urban sprawl of the city. I am happiest when on my bike with the wind in my hair, meditating in a yoga class or exploring the wilderness with friends.
Airbnb is the perfect opportunity to share my home with like-minded travellers.
