About this listing
Our second floor flat has 2 bedrooms and a lounge with open plan kitchen and a balcony. One of the bedrooms is ours as we are a couple and the other, smaller but still nice will be ready for you. We are friendly and easy going people, a music promoter and a PhD student. Our flat is clean, cosy, all our kitchen equipment, spices and sauces will be at your disposal. You will be free to borrow our books and relax in the living room and balcony or ask us for advice if you need help.
I see Leeds as a place for students and academic life. If you`re a scholar in the UK, you will probably travel to Leeds at some point for a conference or a public lecture. Also, Leeds has got a very interesting music scene and many musicians and bands like to play here. It is a place on the North which is smaller than Manchester but bigger than York but still very modest and close to beautiful nature reserves and parks such as the Yorkshire Dales, Lake District, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, beautiful moors near Ilkley, Otley and other little Northern towns such as Hebden Bridge or Knesborough.
You can definitely use the shared living room which is very nice and where me and Adam spend most time when we are at home. The balcony is also nice with a cup of tea and a book (or a cigarette if you are a smoker). We grow herbs and have a lot of spices, teas, coffee and kitchen equipment which we are happy to share as well as things like washing machine, hairdryer etc.
Interaction with guests
We are both happy to give advice about the city. I know about academic life around Leeds University and also I am a yoga and dance enthusiast so I`m able to give advice in this area too. My partner is an expert in music scene and a serious long trail runner and we`re both happy to share what we know about these things in Leeds. During the day we are rarely here as we both work, but we cook food almost every night.
Other things to note
We do take our shoes off and leave them by the door. We would be very happy if our guests could do the same :).
- We do not wear shoes inside our place
- Smoking permitted only on the balcony
- We have a car park which is free to use

I am a Czech citizen studying a PhD at the Leeds University. I live with my partner who works in a music venue. We are friendly, we like meeting new people and in our house we have 1 spare bedroom which is available for short rentals, basically people who need simple accommodation and don`t mind sharing kitchen and bathroom with others.
When I travel, I mostly look for private rooms or entire flats, I am not demanding in terms of equipment etc. and anything that is clean and in the right place is good for me.
I am looking forward to host you.
