I’m getting a bit fed up with reviews complaining about the ‘cleanliness’ of my space. I’m not a fastidiously clean person. Most people don’t seem to mind this. But if you are someone who does mind a bit of dust or the occasional hair on the floor in a corner of a room please DO NOT BOOK THIS SPACE. And if you are a cleanliness freak and you do book this space, DO NOT COMPLAIN as you have been warned. This is not a dirty space, bur equally it is not an ice cube. This is me sharing my home with you, If this is what you want then go ahead and book and I would be delighted to host you. As you can see nearly all of my guests have really enjoyed their time here.
on arrival. friendly and flexible, just ask
