As often or a little as you like. We are friendly and like to talk to our guests. Having said that my father works long shifts covering several hundred miles a day and so please be mindful of that. Any Airbnb related queries should be directed at me exclusively. Please message me if in am not present in the house.
Please don't use hot water in the upstairs bathroom for extensive periods (i.e. for having a shower) after 11pm at night because it produces a certain amount of noise from the pressure pump - that may disturb other guests.
We have a saniloo system in the toilet which means that large amounts of paper put down in one flush will block the unit. The call out charge for the engineer to unblock and repaired the system is £115. This can be easily avoided by being mindful of the systems limitations.
We expect that you arrive and check in before 7pm at night. If you want arrive after 7pm then we are happy to accommodate but expect 24hrs notice and a £20 cash fee will apply.
Once you have let me know when you intend to arrive, please keep me updated if you need to amend your arrival time. If you decide to change your arrival time and don't communicate this change then I cannot guarantee that i will be at home to welcome you to the house.
The kitchen is not available for cooking or preparing chilled food but we are happy for you to make yourself complementary hot and cold drinks. Please help yourself.
None smoking guests only please.
Please take off your shoes before going upstairs.
Please don't use hot water in the bathroom for extensive periods (i.e. for having a shower) after 11pm at night because it produces a certain amount of noise from the electric powered water pump. This is more noticeable later at night.
We have our mains water supply softened for increased comfort and ease of cleaning. As a result of the softened water, using soap rather than body wash results in making the bath slippery from soap scum. You do this at your own risk and we take no responsibility for any injuries sustained as a result of not taking heed of this suggestion.
If you would like to like to leave your windows open while you are away from the house then please use the security bolts to secure the house.
Front door locks:
When you leave the property and someone else is home then you can just pull the door to. But if the house is empty of people then you should always close the door and lock only the bottom lock (turn anti-clockwise to lock). Please avoid locking the TOP LOCK> as you will lock any inhabitants (that you were unaware were there) inside.
Hi I'm Richie. I've lived in Highgate all my life so I have lots of helpful tips about the local area and the rest of London. One of my favourite things to do is to hop across to Hampstead Heath and swim in the outdoor bathing ponds. I also love to cook. Ask me all about the best local organic farmers markets.
