I love my house. It is light and airy and decorated to my taste, with my preferred furnishings, ornaments etc. It is usually very quiet in my street. For a small town, Alness has a diverse selection of shops, cafes, restaurants and take-aways. It is also very well placed for getting just about anywhere in the Highlands!
You need to know that this is definitely a no smoking zone!

I had a very lovely stay in that house. Penelope was very kind and helpfull all the times. The talks were as exciting as the tipps for the surrounding. The room was simple but everything u need. I also can recommend the breakfast. Thanks at all.

I find writing about myself difficult! Airbnb made some suggestions, so this my attempt to fill in the gaps: 5 things I can't live without? My car. It was off the road for a week recently. Nearly drove me mad! When I travel it is by car to the south of England to visit family…
Interaction with guests
I like to interact with the guest. As a bare minimum, I need to be able to show them how the shower works and in the evening I need to know if they would like breakfast. Also their intended departure time. The breakfast I provide is very basic, just so that you know.
