At least one of us will greet you and be there for your check in. We will always let you know in advance if we are out during your stay and then both of our mobile numbers can be used. You do of course have your own key/keys. Whether 1 night or more, during your stay you are our priority. We are happy to chat and interact if that is what you would like but we always make sure we give you space and respect your peace and privacy.

My husband and I are very pleased to welcome airbnb guests to our home in Scarborough, United Kingdom. We have loved hosting people from all over the UK and all over the world. Each time is an exciting challenge and a fabulous experience. Our guests have never failed to be interesting and extremely nice people. Chris and I are head of a large family and when not hosting, we enjoy spending time with our children and grandchildren and we love walking and gardening, reading and cinema.
When we travel we love city life and cultural events. Paris, Florence, London and Sienna are some of our favorite destinations. 5 things we can't do without: books, travel, fruit, coffee, laughter.
