Amazing retro early 90s kitchen! The seventies-ness of the bathroom has to be seen to be believed! Good hot shower though. Other bathroom is available.

Light double attic bedroom on second floor with double bed, bedside table, wardrobe, bedside lamp, skylight, dimmer lights, desk and chair situated in the centre of the leafy and trendy community of Levenshulme. Please note: the room is lockable, clean but undecorated at the moment and looks like it's haunted by the ghosts of murdered students. At least it's got character.

The space

You’ll love my place because of the the cosiness, the comfy double bed, the light, the kitchen, and the friendly vegan housemates (and one friendly non-vegan, feline one). My place is good for solo adventurers, occasional couples and people looking for jobs or somewhere permanent in Manchester. Doctors attending Dr Swamy's PLAB course are most welcome - it's 10-15 minutes walk away. No cooking meat in the house though please, we are a veggie household...

Guest access

Living & dining room, back yard, bike room, cellar for storage, kitchen, own cupboard, two bathrooms

Interaction with guests

A professional tour guide, I am here to help you and advise on where to visit in Levy and Manchester, show you how the house works, introduce you to other housemates etc but will mostly let you get on with it. I am only taking longish bookings.

Other things to note

Two bathrooms, both with shower, sink and WC. Pictures of the room as it is now coming up. I've just bought a lovely purple rug I want to show off.

Richard has been a wonderful host. He is jolly and friendly. The house is undergoing a few renovations but he made sure my stay was as comfortable as possible. Thank you so much for hosting me on a short notice.

37 year old vegan, writer, Tour Director, crap trader & property manager. I take American students and older British tourists around Europe for work but enjoy hosting vegans & vegetarians in my crappy-but-friendly-and-improving house in Levenshulme, Manchester, 3 minutes from the train station & bus route.

I like electronic music, Green politics & technology which I lose lots of money on, film, Graham Greene. Obsessive reuser and recycler - almost all the furniture & crockery in my house is second-hand or donated. Favourite directors Lars Von Trier & Michael Haneke. TV: Deadwood, Wire, Rome, I Claudius, Curb your Enthusiasm, Black Mirror.

My style of airbnb hosting is to show you where everything is, how the radiator works, to always pull the shower curtain all the way to the wall (!) and give you tips to see things in Levenshulme & Manchester but mainly to let you get on with it. My house is a great place if you are vegan or vegetarian looking for somewhere to live in the area or just want to live in a meat-free, aspirant zero-waste household.

FAQs: Can I have exclusive use of one of the bathrooms? No, my other lodgers have been promised two bathrooms so that is what we all get.

Will the cat come in my room? Not if you shut the door, they are heavy fire doors. (Please make sure you don't shut him in it! :-) )

Can I pet the cat / play with him? Please do, give me some peace!

Can I have extra friends/relatives stay in the room? Not if it is a single. If it is a double there is an extra charge.

What is included? Washing facilities, eco washing liquid, eco washing up liquid and recycled toilet roll are included. Your Toiletries, Tea & coffee are not included. You can borrow a towel if you don't have one and bed linen is included.

Will I have my own keys? Yes.

If I decide to leave early will I get a refund? No, as Airbnb will have marked these days as occupied so I will not be able to re-rent it.

If you have any other questions please get in touch. Thank you!
