Ally provides an extremely spacious flat as well as a large worn back garden area for use. Opening up her home, I was allowed a raw peek into her life as an artist, mother and business woman. She was always generous with food, directions, or places that might have been of interest to me. Our kitchen conversations will be remembered with laughter and insight. In terms of the guest room, I found it to be of medium size with fairly dark lighting. (I spent most of my time at the bright kitchen table.) The bedroom opens out to the street so I was not comfortable opening the blinds nor did I feel completely safe in the neighborhood. It is also important to note that the room is below street level. The flat is much more relaxed, quirky and bohemian than the photos show. Items tend to be shrewn about but as a guest you are allowed that freedom too. Ally calls her style "scruffy smart." Perfectly Ally!
You are the most constructive critic I've had Dianne - love that. I will add a map of the house and make sure people know what to expect. I don't recognise the dust or the odour points but will get someone with a better sense of smell than me to find the source and eradicate it. Th closet - sorry if I didn't mention that, but the available half gave plenty of hanging space I believe? Dianne no one in their right mind will dare to attack you - they wouldn't dare. xa
Das Zimmer ist sehr schön. Die Wohnung ist sehr stylisch und behaglich eingerichtet. Alison war nett und zuvorkommend und hat mir gleich am ersten Abend nette Restaurants und Geschäfte gezeigt. Die Cafes und Restaurants in der nahen Umgebung sind sehr schön und bieten neue und sehr leckere Speisen an, vegetarisch und vegan. Ein toller Bioladen und ein vielfältiger Secondhandladen sowie ein Markt sind fussläufig leicht zu erreichen.
Was only in London for a few days, but had such a wonderful stay at Ally's place and it was definitely the best airbnb experience I've had this far!The room was really comfortable and I felt at home. Ally's house is also quite tastefully decorated and she gave me a lot of great recommendations for the area - which couldn't have been better as there were so many great places for food, coffee, exploring, etc... Also shared a really lovely dinner with her and it was nice to get to know a little bit about her!
