House Rules

Hello! Welcome to my profile :) I've been doing this for over a year and there's a few things that's happened because I haven't set the rules out. Firstly please clean up after yourself, dishes or mess in the bathroom. Guys! Please put the seat back down when you used the toilet and wipe the seat. Ladies please dispose of your sanitry towels/tampons outside in the bins. Please also take bedding off the bed as it helps me for the next arrival :)

    Leider war das Badezimmer recht dreckig und man konnte die Tür nicht abschließen, ebenso wie das Schlafzimmer, das mir zudem mehr wie ein Durchgangszimmer vorkam, weil durch diesen Raum Möbel von der Gastfamilie nach draußen in den Garten getragen wurden. Außerdem konnte man auch hierdie Tür nicht verschließen, weil es keinen Schlüssel zur Tür gab und der Teppich im Raum zu hoch dafür ist. Die Eingangstür steht auch immer auf, solange die Familie zu Hause ist, da aber die ganze Zeit der Fernseher sehr laut läuft, kriegen diese nicht einmal mit ob man unterwegs oder im Haus ist...
    Auch wenn man die Küche benutzen möchte, muss man erst mal das Geschirr der Gastfamilie spülen, da es nicht genügend davon gibt und diese das Geschirr erstmal in die Spüle stellen, um es dann später zu spülen.

    Im sorry you did not enjoy your stay. The room is the only exit to the garden so it has to be used when needed. You can close the bathroom door and lock it, as for the bedroom door im rectifying the problem. Apologies for all other problems you found with the house.

    First time in London and it was great. Shaleksia and his son are very nice people. The house is in zone 2 near the underground and from there you can go to any part of London you want. The price was affordable and I would stay there again

    I booked this is for my daughter I have asked her for feedback 3 times I know she is under a great deal of stress so haven't received reply yet.
    However knowing my daughter I would imagine if anything had been not to her liking she would have told me straightaway. So on that basis I would say she must have been content and happy . I know from my experience in contacting Shaleskia she was very very helpful and responded very quickly. My daughter saw the description of property , area and photo etc and area was a plus for her uni and both of us myself and daughter were happy before I booked it..

    Our 'host mother' wasn't at home when we arrived, but we could go in without any trouble. She became very helpful with my parking card. Tell her in advance if you arrive by car.

    We stayed one month in Shaleskia's home. She is a very welcoming person and her little boy is really wise and polite. The apartment is well located just minutes from a central interchange for public transport. We stayed in the large bedroom with access to a pleasant garden. The internet connection was excellent. Breakfast was okay and we were able to use the washing machine, very useful for a long stay. We'll return with pleasure to Shaleskia's home during a next stay in London.

    Really home-ish and a great feeling, the host was extremely kind... But boyfriend felt a litlle unliked after an episode where some guest told the host that we did something we hadn't (flushing the toilet, but we hadn't even used it since we came home) would recomend to other guests, but no curtains and no light is the reason for the fifth missing heart.
