I am delighted to welcome you to Victoria Terrace. I hope you love it as much as I do!
I've signed up to Airbnb for many reasons. Firstly my friends say I'm a born hostess! I love to have people in my home. I have put my heart and soul into renovating it, and want as many people as possible to enjoy it as possible. I've always loved the idea of running my own boutique hotel, so this is like a really mini version of that.
Also, I love to travel. I work freelance, and love the freedom that gives me. The joy of living in 2015 is that with my laptop, at certain stages of projects I can work from just about anywhere in the world with internet, which means my house, is free for you to enjoy.
I also have a separate listing for my spare bedroom for when I am in town.
Looking forward to welcoming you!
