Many thanks Frank. I did by a second lot of pots and pans so I don't know where they got to. No there is no common space and nor is there in my Chelsea flat but the room size is very good and I am of the opinion that people coming to London are looking for a comfortable room as opposed to a flat-share.
Wishing you both a Happy Christmas.
I have just started doing airbnb at this house. there is a cleaner for the common parts who comes a couple of times a week but it is up to the people in the house to also do their best to keep the place clean .
The house is not particularly smart but that is reflected in the price. The rooms are always presented thoroughly clean. There was an issue with the heater which I resolved.
