This listing is only for someone willing to stay the entire period of Dec 18-Jan7 and who is willing to care for our two lovely dogs; a discount is available for doing so! We have a lovely contemporary 4 BR, 2.5 bath London home and garden that sleeps 10 people. We are a quick 20 mins from downtown London (Kings Cross St Pancras), 1 block to shops and restaurants, and across the street from a gorgeous park with tennis courts, a playground, and open fields and woods.
Large and contemporary with lots of light and modern features alongside stylish antique and contemporary furniture. Fantastic garden with a lush lawn, sofas, picnic tables and a 'pod' to eat in.
We have a guest code to enter the house so no keys are needed and guests can come and go at whatever times they please.
We will be away during this period so there will be no interaction with the guests. We will be available via phone and email if there are any problems.
Please treat our home with care and leave it as you found it.

She is a serial social entrepreneur and advocate who consults with non-profits and foundations on strategy and organisational development. She is an attorney and filmmaker, and formerly served as Campaign Director for 1Sky, a collaborative campaign that pushed for federal action to tackle global warming. For ten years, she served as Executive Director of WITNESS, which uses video to expose human rights abuses, and prior to that she led an international undercover investigation into trafficking women into forced prostitution. She is co-editor and author of Video for Change, received her BA from Harvard University and a J.D. from Georgetown University, and is a recipient of numerous awards and honours including Ashoka, Skoll and Schwab awards for social entrepreneurship.
