Interaction with guests
We will meet you and show you around the house and garden. You may meet other guests if another room is booked at the same time. Dino our cat though, a little shy may say hello. Most days we are at our shop & restaurant in Brixton Village market - we are happy for you to pop in during the day - We can give you an insiders guide to Brixton Village, recommend great local places to eat and curious places off the beaten track for you to visit.owl
Check in: 1pm -10pm
Please check if you want to check in outside these hours.
Early arrivals: you are welcome to come and drop off your bags from 9am onwards. If the room is ready (no guests the previous night) you can often check in before 1pm, just ask.
Late arrivals: We can sometimes make an exception, but we don't generally accept arrivals after 10pm as it is disruptive for other guests. If you have a flight arriving after 8.30/9pm, it is unlikely you will make it to our house before 10pm.
Check in is by advance arrangement at a time suitable to both parties - we try to be as flexible as possible with check in to fit with guests travel plans - but this does not mean 'anytime'. If you arrive at a time not previously agreed you may not find us home.
We like to check in guests ourselves and show them around the house and garden, though are times when we are both working, both away when our housemate Jenny or a friend will be there to welcome you instead.
Is 11am or before, after which we need to clean and get the room ready for future guests. You need to leave keys in the room door and remove any bags, though it is often possible for you to leave bags downstairs to collect later.

My background is in design and innovation and my partner Ian is a chef. We have a little restaurant in Brixton Village market and a shop selling useful, beautiful and curious things for the home. We like gardening, growing food & eating it. We travel a fair bit and have had some great experiences through Airbnb. We are really looking forward to being hosts ourselves and helping people explore Brixton and our favourite 'secret' bits of London.
