Make yourself at home in our beautiful, sunny architect designed house. Two doubles with king beds (one en suite) plus third double/nursery. Lovely sunny garden. Near to parks, shops, restaurants, Temple Meads station and good transport links. On street parking. As our family home it comes equipped with all you could need, including toys for small children, Wifi, TV & Netflix.
Our house looks like an ordinary Victorian house on the outside, but on the inside it's a bit of a tardis! Downstairs we have 2 living areas - formal living room & a day room/play room (the formal sitting room can be shut off from the rest of the house), a large open-plan kitchen diner with a huge glass door to the garden, and a utility room with another huge door to the garden, washing machine, toilet & sink. On the first floor is a huge family bathroom with a claw-footed bath tub & massive walk-in shower. There is also the master bedroom with wardrobe and super-kingsize bed, and a smaller bedroom that has a cot and a large double sofa bed. Keep going up the metal staircase, across a glass walkway (see our other listing for more photos) & you will reach our loft bedroom with corner sofa, desk & kingsize bed, with ensuite shower room. This room has great views over Bristol, and blackout blinds on the velux windows. Outside we have a secure south facing sunny garden, with table and chairs.
As we have a toddler there are toys available for your use. The house has fast wifi, and digital TV with Netflix in the main living room. There is a dishwasher, washing machine & drying racks for your use. Cleaning products, dishwasher tablets & laundry powder are all provided. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you should need. Please feel free to use cooking spices, condiments, teas, coffees & cereals. We respectfully ask that any other food items are not consumed. We will leave ample space for you to store your food in cupboards, fridge & freezer. All rooms come with bedding & towels.
You will have access to the whole house, other than our home office in the back garden, which will be kept locked. There is plenty of space for you to enjoy & relax!
We will be available by phone & email, & will always have someone local on hand for emergencies.
There is a small pond in the garden, so please do be aware of this if you have small children.
Smoking in the garden only, but please clean up after yourself. This is a family neighbourhood so please no parties or loud music late at night. We expect guests to treat the house with respect and leave it clean and tidy, and to enjoy themselves!
As this is our family home, please treat it as such. You are welcome to use books and toys during your stay, but we ask you to put everything away when you leave. We will leave wardrobe and drawer space for your clothes. Please do not access other drawers and cupboards in the bedrooms.
There is no access to the home office in the garden.
Use of the garden is permitted, but at your own risk. Please ensure you lock the back doors before going out.
No hen or stag parties
I love to meet new people from all over the world, so I think Airbnb is such a brilliant idea. I have a number of different jobs- artist, therapist, researcher, which keeps me on my toes. I live with my partner, Rory (an artist) and our dog - a very friendly and fluffy Spoodle called Pickle. We love hosting friends and friends-to-be at our lovely sunny house and are happy to give advice on where to go & what to do. Equally, we understand people need their own space, so are happy to leave you to your own devices.
Rory & I have travelled lots and that's reflected in the bits & bobs around the house. I lived in Mexico for a while and now have a love of colour and spice. Luckily Rory does too!
We have friends all over the world and always appreciate arriving somewhere new to a comfy bed, a cup of tea and a smile. Hopefully we offer that to our guests too.
