No rules. Just behave like a civilised human being. You should know how to behave by now. Just clean up after yourself and be friendly.

*What time is check in / out? - we are pretty flexible. Just let us know what works for you.
*Can I use the fridge? - of course. We have a fridge for the exclusive use of guests. You will be allocated a shelf, or more, if you need it.
*Can we cook? - sure thing.
*Can I use the washing machine / dishwashing machine? - yup. Why wouldn't you?
*Can I use the microwave? - are you crazy? One guest told her us that previous host wouldn't allow her to use the microwave. You can spoil yourself here :)
*Can I stay out late? - we are not your parents! Do what you want.
*Smoking is strictly forbidden.

I'm glad to say that several of our previous guests are now personal friends. We look forward to sharing good memories with you.

We loved your house, thank you so much for a lovely stay. Highlights for the kids were the cats and the coolest toilet in hackey - or possibly London! Really nice to be back in my old stomping ground too, I'd forgotten how much I miss it :) Thanks for being a great host xx

John's place is in a lovely leafy part of town whilst still very close to easy transport links to the wild delights of east london or the traditional central sights. The room is huge with great big bay windows. John was super efficient at communicating and very friendly when I got there. He also went out of his way to help when I had a minor emergency. Highly recommended.
