Interaction with guests
As often or a little as you like. My father works a very early shift 4am till 4pm. Please therefore direct all queries to either me in person or message me if in am not present in the house.
Lovely old pubs and stunning architecture from a variety of different periods. Highgate is widely considered one of the most beautiful neighbourhoods in London.
Highgate tube (Northern Line) is a 7 minute (0.3 mile) walk from the house and from there it's just 12mins to Central London (Euston). There are also direct buses to Liverpool Street station(214) , Kings Cross St Pancras (214), London Bridge (43) and Tottenham Court Road (134). Uber generally takes only a few minutes to arrive - if you have never used before then i am able to obtain you a complimentary £15 credit to use as you wish.
Other things to note
Please be mindful that my father has to be up at 4am for work most days. Therefore you should direct Airbnb related queries to me only. You will not be disturbed when he leaves in the morning because he lives at the other end of the house.
Please don't use hot water in the upstairs bathroom for extensive periods (i.e. for having a shower) after 11pm at night because it produces a certain amount of noise from the pressure pump - that may disturb other guests.
We expect that you arrive and check in before 7pm at night. If your flight times dictate a later arrival time then we are happy to accommodate but need at least 24hrs notice and a £15 cash fee will apply.
Once you have let me know when you intend to arrive, please keep me updated if you need to amend your arrival time. If you are running late and don't communicate this change then I cannot guarantee that i will be at home to welcome you to the house.
No smoking in the house or in the front or back garden.
Please take off your shoes before going upstairs.
Please avoid using hot water in the upstairs bathroom for extensive periods (i.e. for having a shower) after 11pm at night because it produces a certain amount of noise from the pressure pump.
We have our mains water supply softened for increased comfort and ease of cleaning. If you use soap rather than body wash, then you risk making the bath slippery from soap scum. You do this at your own risk and i take no responsibility for any injuries sustained as a result of not taking heed of this suggestion. The bath is cleaned regularly.
Hi I'm Richie. I've lived in Highgate all my life so I have lots of helpful tips about the local area and the rest of London. One of my favourite things to do is to hop across to Hampstead Heath and swim in the outdoor bathing ponds. I also love to cook. Ask me all about the best local organic farmers markets.
