I am 71. I have been welcoming guests since 1975! I am mother and Grandmother and retired. I live alone but my family live locally. I used to teach English to small children. I understand how confusing a new place. and country can be & I`m always helpful to guests but I speak only English,I`m afraid. I enjoy unusual genres of music & like gardening. My garden is long and peaceful and I`m happy to share it with guests. I also love animals & have environmentally friendly beliefs . I have one timid cat....Take note allergy sufferers!
You will always be welcome to use my TV which has subtitles and is located in the main room. :-) I have had some lovely guests over the years from Japan,Italy,Hungary,Korea,China,France,Malaysia, Germany and the US. All nationalities are welcome :-)

SORRY GUYS-LADIES ONLY and couples for short-stays!

Smoking is allowed outside on my porch where there is a small covered area and seats for a sunny day/evening.
Cleaning is included, Breakfast is included. Dinner is available some days if you ask but I prefer you to make your own arrangements. My cooking is nothing special but I can cater for Vegetarians and Vegans and guests can use my kitchen to cook their own meals. Even laundry included, if you want,completely free. Free-Wi-Fi as well-what a bargain! Although I mostly take shorter-stay guest (this allows me rest-periods and to invite friends/family to stay in my rooms) please still ask if you need a longer period. Last year I had a German student for 5 months and we both enjoyed being house-mates. We cooked for each other and she even enjoyed helping in my garden and learning about gardening:-)
The room has a double bed and can take a third (single) bed. I do not very often reccommend 3 people in the room because I only have 1 shower and 1 toilet,at the moment-hopefully that will change soon as I have alterations this year,but please ask- if you are a family of 3, if you are only staying for a few days- it would be fine for that.
Parking is on the street but there is almost always room.

    I enjoyed my stay with Krista. She's really friendly, and her cooking is good, and healthy too! House and room was really clean and tidy. She has a really nice back garden as well. Recommended!

    Hatte eine schöne Zeit. Ideal für Leute die in London wohnhaft werden, die Wohnungsuche aber langsam angehen möchten. (man bekommt jeden Tag gutes Essen und Tipps für die Wohnungssuche etc.)
    Das Haus liegt zwar etwas außerhalb, aber die Verkehrsanbindungen in die Stadt sind gut und schnell.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
