I am a semi-retired project manager (entertainment industry including stage and production management for theatre and opera, theme-parks and hotels) with three grown up children who visit at Christmas. I joined Airbnb in March 2015 as a host, and travelled round India and the UK meeting delightful people who have hosted me. I love the Airbnb ethos of sharing my house with guests.
My house is Grade 2 listed, although a mongrel mixture of eras, from the 17th c. cellar to 21st c. kitchen, with a late Georgian core, and 1930s add-ons, when it became the town's dentist. Very central, but quiet - somewhat eccentric - I love it. There is a Bechstein piano available to use for rehearsal or practice, which is old but lovely tone. It needs playing!
