Female from the UK.
Loraine and Mark (her husband) were my first guests and I believe I was very lucky: they were gentle, considerate and thoughtful. Before Loraine even arrived she saw from my pictures that I had 2 cats and offered to look after them when she was there, which was very generous of her. I feel with guests you have to work on instinct and once I had them 'in situ' I was away for 3 days from the house, but knew everything would be just fine. Loraine and Mark were very low-key and undemanding. They came in late in the evening and were very respectful in the morning. So really they were exemplary guests! They made up the bed and kept the kitchen and bathroom immaculate. The biggest surprise of all came when they left the most thoughtful of gifts for me: a DVD of Bladerunner, that I happened to mention I had found hard to find. Incredibly thoughtful and kind. I look forward to seeing them again!
