The house was fantastic, it was very clean on arrival and Alexander had sent us very clear instructions on how to find the house and also how to operate things upon arrival.
Setting is amazing, very quiet and well maintained courtyard. The house was perfect for our needs however the garden was a little 'un touched' and we we had to keep the children away from the trampoline as it was not in a good state.
Our weekend was most enjoyable.
Alexander madesure we had all the instructions prior to arrival and we did not need to contact him during our stay.
Great house, amazing area and the weather was a bonus too
I've actually stayed here before and I can see myself staying here regularly. The convenience of being so close to London yet in an historical rural setting is awesome. Alex the host was across every minute detail and made sure that my stay was very enjoyable.
The place is beautiful and I highly recommend it. The area has some nice little pubs, too, and is great for driving around and exploring.
Really looking forward to my return.
I should be keeping this place a secret ;)

I have been doing vacation rentals for a number of years. I am enthusiastic about Airbnb - its my favorite platform and I love the people I get to meet and help out.
I have travelled to many places in the world and love when I find a comfortable place and a friendly host. I therefore aspire to offer you a comfortable environment and a friendly host.
Besides that I am interested in many things...... from reading psychology to mindful living and world travel. I love the sun. Especially sunny Arizona. I have been living here on and off for many years.
I enjoy listening to Jack Johnson, Bob Marley, spiritually inspired music such as Karunesh....
Fundermentally I love the idea of happiness, health and healing......
I have explored many work avenues in life...i am happy with hosting because i get too meet people from all over the (website hidden) past times i worked as a gem,crystal and minerals merchant...... also work that i loved.
Would love to visit Costa Rica again. Enjoy the rain forrests and natural abundant beauty and slender.Definately a country i would aspire to retire in.
Other area's of life that i gravitate toward include,healing arts, mental health, healing in general, happiness, resonance with nature, eastern religion, buddhist style philosophy and psychology as well as phenomenology and ontology; the study of the nature of existence. I love the idea of global autonomy and self generated interdependence. Enjoy the idea of being a life long montessori learner. Love creativity and expressive arts......
I have travelled to 22 countries so far and enjoy the prospect / idea of visiting many more!
I would love to travel to Thailand, Brazil and India as well as Tibet sometime in the future.....
I would love to meet the Dali lama and many other spiritual leaders on my (website hidden) father [who is a professor/world authority on eastern religion and the ancient language sanskrit] has organized events bringing people in touch with spiritual leaders and places. Therefore, I love yoga and anything to do with eastern design, lifestyle and living.
My ultimate dream would be to create a resort exclusively rented via airbnb which offers accommodations to all people at affordable prices and especially hosting students and young people on a shoe string . Some people may think this is giving my dream away but I would encourage this. Happy hosting!
My favorite travel destinations are London where I am from and sunny Arizona my sunshine home. I enjoy buddhist literature...... love watching movies .... Avatar, the lord of the rings and the hobbits journeys. I love live music. Love reggae and ambient music as well. I love all kinds of food. From raw vegan to exotic french and thai foods.
My mode of traveling so far has encompassed the entire range ...From exclusive style to local cave .
My hosting style is very much -"greet you with a welcome smile" and be available when you need me .The rest of the time i would be seen as a private
, quiet host that stays in the background .
Thank you for contacting me and hopefully you will have an amazing stay..... I look forward to hosting you soon!
"Om mani padre hum"
(praise the jewel in the lotus) in sanskrit translation,
"A quiet mind is all you need. All else will happen rightly, once your
mind is quiet. As the sun on rising makes the world active, so does
self-awareness affect changes in the mind. In the light of calm and
steady self-awareness, inner energies wake up and work miracles
without any effort on your part".
"You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us. And the world will live as one" - John Lennon
"When you are different the whole world is different. It is not a question of creating a different world. It is only a question of creating a different you". Osho
"All you want is to be happy. All your desires, whatever they may be, are longing for happiness. To imagine that some little thing-food, ..love... power, fame - will make you happy is to deceive yourself. Only something as vast and deep as your real self can make you truly and lastingly happy. - Nisargadatta Maharaj
