Our home has FREE Private Parking, Infinity WiFi, and attractive garden. Having lived overseas for many years notably Africa and the Middle East our home is a reflection of many fascinating countries.

For breakfast there is a choice of cereals and marmalades and preservers etc. in the cupboard which you may help yourself to and also a large variety of coffees, including fresh filtered coffee, our selection of teas including Herbals and hot chocolate. For toast we generally eat brown bread, but if you prefer white we can get some in......

We believe we have a warm, clean, unique relaxing home with character, somewhere to unwind; it is our intention to keep it that way. To retain our homes homely atmosphere, and for your own peace of mind, whilst we do have two further individual listings on Airbnb we rarely have all three listings occupied at the same time unless booked by a group.

Our adaptable flexible approach, coupled with our own and your own comfort and enjoyment, is always and will always remain forefront in our mind and will always be extremely important to us!

Guest access

As a guest in our home, to help make your stay as comfortable as possible, you would also have use of our kitchen, living room, separate dining room to work and/or relax with a meal. Plus there is always our beautiful sunny secluded South facing garden with Braai (BBQ).

You may also help yourself to tea, coffee and hot chocolate at any time of day and use our clean modern kitchen which has top of the range appliances including a microwave, washing machine and iron.

Interaction with guests

Social, yet respecting other people's privacy too, we enjoy music, cooking in the kitchen or on the braai (bbq), travel, watching rugby and polo. Generally, either myself, or my adult son are on hand should you have any questions regarding the local area and/or we would all be more than happy to share a glass of wine or two.

For your added convenience very reasonably priced, freshly prepared home cooked seasonal evening meals are also available by request. To help you keep track of your expenses, arrangements for additional payment for evening meals can either be made through the Airbnb Platform or directly while you are staying here, which ever you prefer.

Other things to note

If there is anything else you’d like to make your stay more comfortable and/or you have forgotten something, please just let us know? We have electronic adaptors for the UK’s odd British plugs, hairdryers, umbrellas (which hopefully you won’t need), a colour printer, scanner and fax, Oyster cards that you can top up in London and also spare toothbrushes…… If it is swimming towels you after, we have them too, plus an enviable assortment of picnic boxes, cool boxes, ice bricks, Tupperware and special sets of picnic/office cutlery (which are not kept in the kitchen) to borrow and return. Without any exception please do not remove or borrow any of our kitchen cutlery or utensils.

Also, if it is just a few local tips you need for restaurants, shops, travel etc. just ask?

We don't have any major rules, but we do have an open and friendly home and we would very much like to keep it that way. So we ask, out of courtesy, to respect others and leave rooms and things (kitchen, bathroom etc.) how you found them.

We understand accidents can happen. If anything gets broken or damaged please inform us ASAP so we can discuss it before it goes to the "deposit" stage.

We request guests not to wear shoes within the house, so you may like to bring slippers or bedroom socks.

If you wish to eat at home, kindly do not to take food upstairs. You may either eat in the dining room, the sunny garden BBQ patio seating area or in the kitchen.

Be sensible about food - obviously you are responsible for buying larger quantities of your own food and drinks. However in addition to the selection of breakfast items we provide we won't mind if you help yourself to pasta/herbs/cooking oil/condiments etc. or other staples!

Without any exception please do not remove or borrow any of our kitchen cutlery or utensils from our home. We have special sets of office/picnic cutlery (which are not kept in the kitchen) to borrow and return. Just ask!

Smoking is permitted in the garden. Ashtrays are provided, and must only be emptied in the green bin once extinguished.

We do ask our guests to respect our neighbours. Especially late at night as noise does carry along the private drive, so please no slamming of car doors or loud music etc.

Unfortunately we cannot accept guests with children unless the booking is for all 3 of our rooms. i.e. a group booking or a family.

FINALLY!! The grass verge at the front of the house is VERY prone to getting very muddy and very very slippery, even in the summer when it is watered. Please, wherever possible do not walk across the grass. In the past a guest has had a nasty fall! Rather walk along the drive in front of our garage door or use the three steps and path to the right of our home.

You must also acknowledge
Must climb stairs - The kitchen, living room, dining room and cloakroom are on the ground floor of our house. Your bedroom and bathroom are on the 1st floor of our home.

I really enjoyed my stay at Alex's place. Homely, comfortable and very welcoming. I would recommend without hesitation! Thank you again.

Alex's home was a wonderful place to begin living in England. I took advantage of her airport pick up service and she was prompt and easy to communicate with. The house itself is immaculate and as such, guests treat it with care. The location is unbeatable and Alex's local knowledge makes a huge difference. Alex was a kind and generous host, for whom no request was too much. She helped me settle in and was always on hand for a chat or some advice. The other guests were a joy as well. Thank you for a perfect stay!

Alex could not have done anything more to make my stay more perfect. The home is fantastic and the welcome very warm. I enjoyed the home and her company and found Alex very helpful, especially with her knowledge of the area. I cannot rate my stay highly enough, 5 stars with rosette.

Alex was a lovely host, I felt very welcome and at home as soon as I arrived! Beautiful house, really clean and modern with a lively kitchen. The play 'n' pop game was great fun and everyone gets involved! I had just come back from Australia and it was a perfect place to stay! Very thoughtful host, even let me borrow her jump leads for my car!

I had another lovely stay at Alex’s place. I’m running out of superlatives to describe how much I enjoy staying at this ‘home away from home’. In short: the home is comfortable , tidy and clean and Alex goes out of her way to make her guests feel welcome and at ease and that includes cooking up some delicious home-made meals. She had quite a few regular guests who keep coming back, which is a testimony to her outstanding hospitality. Highly recommended.

Alex is an impeccable host, warm and friendly. She has a beautiful home in a quiet location tucked away from the madness but just a doorstep away from the M4 and M25 gateway and the place where all roads lead to : Central London. I really believe Alex undersells her home on AirBnB. It's so beautifully decorated and clean with lovely personal touches. She wants you to treat the home as it was yours and there is no better testimony when you stay at somebody's place than that. Above and beyond that, is that you will find Alex has had a very interesting life and just a joy to sit and pass the time with. Thanks Alex

Young at heart, I am not a girly girl, far more comfortable in my jeans! I am practical, love to cook especially on the Braai (BBQ) and have a wicked sense of humour which complements my sons dry humour. We love music and listen mainly to jazz and blues, enjoy sport such as cricket, rugby and polo and keep up with news. We are not huge fans of the television, but we do have many (!) to watch the odd programme or two. I like to think that we have an open positive outlook on life and enjoy peoples company and sharing experiences.

As one of less than a handful of original Airbnb Hosts in Maidenhead we have had the pleasure of meeting and hosting people and making good friends with guests from all corners of the world. During our Airbnb journey we have listened to our guests feedback and have endeavoured to always exceed all our guests expectations. We our proud that we have made so many good friends through Airbnb, and have so many repeat guests who also recommend our home to their own family, friends and work colleagues. Having held the coveted Airbnb Superhost status consistently now for over 29 months we do hope that whether or not you are a new user of Airbnb or a veteran converted Airbnb traveller that you will also enjoy our home from home experience and perhaps become part of our Airbnb family.
