Other things to note
Variety of breakfast options laid out in kitchen for guests to help themselves...
Hello!! I am a former ESL teacher who desperately needed a break from teaching. So, in 2016, I moved to Cambridge with my then eight-year-old daughter, Lydia. I had read English Literature at St. Catharine's College here in Cambridge in the 'good ol' days' and decided to return and give my daughter a chance to experience the local multicultural outlook and the beauties this city has to offer. Airbnb hosting is not just a much-needed income to help towards paying the rent; it is a fascinating way of life and a valuable 'school' for my daughter. I find interacting with diverse characters, cultures and races a truly interesting and fulfilling experience.... So welcoming guests to our home is done with a genuine smile and the best intentions.
The life motto I have passed on to my daughter is "Hope for the best and be prepared for the worst" and that, whatever happens, humour saves the day.... Having a good hearty laugh a day keeps most troubles away....
