House Rules

Please let me know what time to expect you at, so I will listen out for the doorbell - I cannot hear it from the back garden. If you could let me know by the day before, that would be ideal. Once I know your intended arrival time I will ensure I'm not bathing my toddler or getting him to sleep around that time.

Guests may leave luggage before check-in. Please arrange at least a day in advance.

Check-out time is 09:30
Please leave keys in the door of your room. You are welcome to leave luggage after check-out. Please arrange in advance.

Breakfast is provided until 10:00 and is laid out the night before so please serve yourselves. I will explain where things are at check-in. Milk, juice and butter can be found in the fridge.

If you have any special food requests or requirements, please let me know and I will hopefully be able to provide.

The kitchen is for use at breakfast only.

Please ensure the front door is closed when leaving the house. Sometimes the lock on the door doesn't click closed properly.

Please contact me on Airbnb messaging preferably. My mobile phone has bad signal in the house, so I rarely get calls and many texts arrive hours late. My phone is set to silent if I am putting my baby to sleep. If I do not respond to your message within a few hours, please message me again to remind me. Sometimes I am disturbed before I reply and because of the distractions of a baby I can forget that the message is not finished. My intention is always to respond.

Directions will be on your booking confirmation email. Please bring a copy of the directions and how to recognize the house with you on your journey - a simple screen shot or photo on your phone. This means you will find the house and it will not be an issue if you cannot get in touch with me immediately.

Heating and hot water:
There is underfloor heating throughout the house. Heating is set to 18 degrees upstairs and 20 degrees downstairs.

Hot water is set for 7am and 7pm. We have two large tanks to service the house, this is plenty but please do be mindful that taking a very long shower may empty the tanks. If you do find that the water is not as hot as you like, please let me know and I can switch it on for you. It takes about 20-30 mins to heat up.

No food is to be consumed in the bedrooms.

Non smoking household.

Only guests who have been booked in to stay are allowed to stay in the rooms.

Iron, ironing board, hairdryer, extra towels, pillows, blankets and usb plugs for charging phones are available on request.

If anything doesn't meet your needs or expectations during your stay, please let me know and I will do my best to amend.

Please leave a review after you stay. It is helpful for future guests and helps me ensure the accommodation and service I provide is accurately described and meets the expectations of guests.

Vanessa was the perfect host. Her home the perfect base-camp for my 6day Dublin experience. Beeing in the lovely and quiet south part of the town you get into the centre by bus or tram without any problems, even at night. Vanessa has a lovely family and a beautiful home. If I come back to Dublin I already know where I will stay. Thanks again!

I had a wonderful to stay. Vanessa was very kind and helpful. The house is clean and comfortable. It's close to the rain which made it easy to get downtown. I would recommend to stay here

Line 140 terminates at a 1 minute walk, LUAS is less than 10 away. You'll be at Grafton within 20-25 min. Vanessa has a lovely house and a beautiful son. The bathroom was shared with other guests, but that worked out excellent. Vanessa is a very friendly person who wants to walk the extra mile to make you feel at home. Much appreciated!

Vanessa's place is really awesome!The location is great and both tram (Luas) and bus stop near the house. The single room is extremely clean and tidy, through it is not an ensuit room, there is a bathroom solely for me. So, it's really convenient. This is the house I strongly recommend in Dublin!!!

Vanessa User ProfileVanessa is a superhost.

My partner and I live in Dartry in south Dublin with our very active 2 year old. My partner has 2 other children who stay with us every second weekend, so at times we're a busier household.

I enjoy yoga, running and creative arts. I'm very interested in health & well being and really enjoy preparing food, that has good nutritional value as well as great taste. I don't eat meat and rather the household be meat free also. At home it's usually vegan food I prepare for myself, and vegetarian when preparing meals for the household.
