Large double bed in a quiet and comfortable room, ideal for city breaks and business trips. Direct travel connections to many major London destinations, by road, rail and tube. Walking distance to Big Ben, Leicester Square, Tower Bridge and the City.
LGBT+ friendly (including the cats!)
My small central London home is warm and cosy, and I share it with two lovely cats, Haggis and Nermal (who are normally restricted to communal areas).
I work from home (I am a music teacher) and so there will often be a bit of noise during the day time and early evening; this ceases by around 8pm and usually earlier. There will also be some coming and going, and if I'm teaching when you arrive I'm afraid you will be pointed at the room and left to it until I am free!
The cats, Haggis and Nermal, are friendly and curious and you should expect to be thoroughly investigated! You're more than welcome to host them in bed, though they do like to wake up around 3am.
The bed has a high-quality mattress and hotel-quality cotton bedding. I provide towels, robes, and useful amenities, all of which are freshly cleaned for each new guest.
There is a chest of drawers and fitted wardrobe space, and a small desk adequate for using a laptop.
You are in general welcome to be in your room at any time. While I'm teaching, please try to keep interaction to a minimum to avoid disturbing my students, but feel free to pop through and make a cup of tea or the like. You're more than welcome to use the living room in the mornings and evenings, and the garden space is always open - though please try and keep noise down if out after around 10pm.

The house has quite a few musical instruments in it - if you know how to play them, please do get stuck in.
If you'd like to use the record turntable attached to the hi-fi, please ask to be shown it - it is a somewhat unique and delicate beast. If you're a vinyl enthusiast, you'll want to hear this machine.
Obviously, this is my home, so I expect you to treat it in the same way you would treat yours - etc etc :)
Really, that's all I think I need to say about rules - I've yet to receive a guest who was anything less than ideal. You're all amazing people. Thank you all for making this a great experience all round.
As I work primarily from home, I'm around quite a lot, and you're more than welcome to say hello or ask questions at any time.
I am one of the thousands of Scots who through fortune, chance, or intent, has washed up in London. I live by myself with two cats, Haggis and Nermal.
I teach music, do a little gigging, and a few other bits and pieces, and it all seems to hang together somehow. I started using Airbnb for travelling, and it seemed the logical next step to start hosting myself.
I don't have much in the way of travel plans for the next year or two, being busy with projects here in London, but I'm sure when I do I will be booking it on Airbnb!
