These are just some of the welcomes that I have had the privilege to have heard from the homes of people on my past travels.
Hi, we are a happy, warm friendly couple who live in a wonderful upmarket house in the lovely village of Church Langley, Harlow situated between London & Stansted airport in Essex (15 minutes from either location).
Together, we own one of the most unique, creative beautiful homes in the area... and we'd like to share it with you!
We are exceptionally welcoming, friendly and easy to get to know plus over the years have helped countless visitors/guest enjoy their stay in Essex whilst visiting the big beautiful multi cultural city that is London.
In the past we have hosted students studying English as we LOVE having visitors, tourists and meeting people from all walks of life, different cultures, nationalities and from all corners of the world as listening, learning and sharing other peoples life experiences is such a rewarding experience that money cannot buy.
We like meeting people and it is our pleasure to Air BnB and to meet people from all over the world plus to listen to what they want from their holiday. For us, Air BnB gives us the privilege of seeing so many different people and from personal experience is a challenge that takes courage to implement.
Once you stay with us, our aim is to make your stay at our place as comfortable as possible so that you can say, Wow, we enjoyed that location and want to go back to that home!'.
Our home calls you because the house just seems to choose the people who like that unique, creative, special home from home warm fuzzy feeling of a clean, comfortable, friendly, peaceful, cosy, happy, spacious, calming Zen filled haven; although the guests tend to think they have chosen the house!
We are a musical family household and there is an up-right piano, guitars, drums, violin, saxophone, clarinet, flutes and other instruments in the house and it has attracted artistic professionals, pianists, singers and actors who want to keep rehearsing and that suits us fine as we LOVE to hear the music in the house.
Our life motto is: We are here in this life to help others and if you cannot help them, then at least do not hurt or harm them!
A little about me: I was born and raised in Liverpool and have lived in both London & Essex for over 35 years. I consider myself as a bit of a Londoner with a sprinkle of Essex charm.
We run our own businesses and in our spare time, enjoy travelling to warmer parts of the globe. We are a fit and healthy conscious family and I enjoy keeping fit and is a regular gym goer that takes one or two fitness classes, loves watching movies (when time permits) plus tuning into good feet tapping music (Brazilian Jazz, Samba, R&B, House, Garage).
We also take pride in showing visitors our favourite city & county and happy to give our guests the opportunity to see a different London & Essex away from the usual tourist trail by making suggestions if needed about where to go, but at the same time, we are fully aware of your need for space and privacy in equal measure, while you are visiting the city or county.
We find that visitors and guest to the house often left wishing they'd booked for longer as the house is a magnet for young families and independent creative people who are looking for something extra from their stay and when there is a connection of like minds, it's a shame not to be able to build on this. So stay open-minded when you book as the unexpected (always good) can happen!
For me, there are certain things that I can't live without and that is: family, the gym, warm weather, hot water, music and delicious food. Oh, and interesting people are certainly a plus.
We like to meet people who 'live and think outside of the box' but are humble and well grounded, so if you're struggling in life, you're welcome here! If you're successful, you're also welcome! Because we all learn from people's lifestyles and choices.
Last year's obsession was our daughters 16th birthday! This year, our son's wedding! So travelling to many parts of the USA & North America was a fantastic blessing. More recently I have decided to write a book even though the last book I read was 'The Help'.
It will be our pleasure to welcome you all to our home in the quiet, rural area of Essex just 15 minutes from Stansted airport and the East End of the culturally diverse magical city of London.
EU Update: To all visitors from the EU, the UK has not yet left the EU and will not leave the EU for at least 2 years (from the point of the government officially leaving/invoking EU article 50). The UK referendum was advisory and has not changed travel regulations. This means that you are still welcome to arrive on your EU documents as before, with ease and without any regulations...
We welcome you here from all corners of the globe and want to see you soon! :-)
