Newly decorated ground floor kingsize room with a 32 inch flat screen tv with built in DVD player, hairdryer, kettle, Wifi and laptop table. We are approximately 10 minutes walk from Watford Junction where you can get a train to London Euston in under 20 minutes.

The space

We live in a mid terraced house in Watford, Hertfordshire, which is a short walk to Watford Junction train station where you can get a train into London in under 20 minutes or get on the bus for the very popular Harry Potter Studio Tours. There is just me, Emma, and my 4 year old boy Toby in our 3 bedroom house, we have a large kitchen/diner you are welcome to use as you wish.

We have a small garden and patio area. I have a mountain bike that guests are welcome to borrow.

We are very sociable; Toby loves meeting new people and I love learning about different cultures - and trying (badly!) to learn new languages.

Guest access

Guests are welcome to relax and make themselves at home. You're welcome to use the kitchen to cook, make tea/coffee etc.

There is a cupboard in the kitchen for your use and space in the fridge and freezer if you would like it. Just let me know what you need.

Interaction with guests

I would probably be around most of the time so would be able to help with travel instructions or looking up websites and activities or any other help you might need while you are here. I am happy to leave you to it so you can chill out or spend time with you if you want to hang out and chat. Although I'm sure Toby will want to chat to you at some point and wave you goodbye when you go out :-)

Please take your shoes off when going upstairs, if you are using the kitchen to cook please clean up after yourself/wipe down the cooker. Please rinse the shower out when you have finished and check the toilet is clean after use. There is no 'curfew' for coming and going but it's good to know if you're going to be back really late so I know not to put the chain on the door.

The room itself was a good size and a comfy double bed. Host was very accommodating and friendly. Parking was a struggle as you could never get a space so had to wait around until someone left. Would struggle to park if you had a large van. Plenty of shops/food places and pubs around. Host does have a 4 yr old son which is highlighted in the advert, however, this was not an issue.

Emma was very welcoming, eager to help us with anything we might need. The place was so clean! Even tho there was only one bathroom in the house, it was always immaculate. Close to the bus service and an easy walk to the subway.

I had a wonderful stay at Emma's She was a great host and her son Toby was a joy the few times I met him. My room was a lovely Oasis after a hard days work Emma was totally transparent about parking which was difficult but free in the area. Emma stood in a free space for 15 to 20 minutes on my prearranged late arrival! I would definitely stay again Thanks Tony

Emma (with her son Toby) is a wonderful host, makes you immediately feel at home, communicates, and everything is exactly as described, if not much better. There is even a breakfast table with a great variety of cereals, fresh milk in the fridge, and the bed was double the size that I needed. Everything is absolutely clean, but even more importantly, it is all done to make you feel good. This is the best place I can imagine in Watford.

We had a lovely time at Emma's. She did everything she could to make us welcome and put her whole home at our disposal.

There is just myself and Toby (5yrs) in our 3 bed terrace. Before having Toby I travelled a fair bit for both pleasure and work including visiting India, Thailand, Malaysia, Bali, Singapore, Japan, Oz, New Zealand, America (including working in Vegas for 7 months, crazy place!) South Africa and many countries in Europe, so I'm always happy to swap travel stories and learn about other places. I have had a variety of jobs - I was a TV Producer/Director for 10 years and lectured media for a year, I have also been a secretary, receptionist, waitress, chalet maid and done many other jobs along the way! I like music, festivals, comedy and learning about people and what makes us tick. We're laid back and friendly and hope to meet you soon :-)
