Please note however that I work from home (I am a beautician) and I have a treatment room next to my bedroom where I see clients. It is very quiet however and it won't interrupt your stay. I have been an Airbnb host for a year and a half and the hundreds of guests that have visited before have loved staying here and it's never been a problem as it's quite private.
Everything! (apart from our bedroom!)
Interaction with guests
I will interact with the guests as much or as little as they so desire.I will be present during the stay.
Other things to note
If you would like to use the washer or dryer, I charge a £5 surcharge for each appliance as they are expensive to use. (This is how we keep our cleaning fee down to a minimum for guests).
It is with regret that I cannot accommodate more than two people for the room.
I cannot accommodate parties or gatherings for private events as I live in the apartment and this will not be suitable.
I have underfloor heating throughout the apartment (both upstairs and downstairs) to keep the temperature comfortable.
We are pretty relaxed, but we try to avoid wearing shoes upstairs as the area is carpeted.
Please set the alarm when leaving the flat if no-one is in.
Smoking is prohibited in the flat, but you can smoke outside of the front door.
My name is Claire and I am 33 years old.
I am a singer-songwriter and I co-write and perform with my brother, Nick. We are currently working with a producer to release an EP this year.
I thoroughly enjoy hosting people from all over the world through airbnb and met some long lasting friends over this past year. I will look forward to meeting more people in 2015!
