One of our wifi speakers can be unplugged and moved anywhere - we put it on a long wire cable, worked fine. Most of them have somewhere that a cable can be looped though. People really like them - we ...

Apparently all the regions are going to have quarantine / isolation facilities available. If so this would be a good solution - your guest has to check into one of these.

I dunno. One of our last guests (here 8-14th March) was ill when she arrived and was only up and about on her last day. I was pretty worried about it at the time. It was a large group who had taken ma ...

But that wouldn't solve the problem of them getting sick whilst they are on holiday. I am not sure you could legally move them out to make room for the next guests either. I would guess that they woul ...

An update on this as some guests just plugged their car in without asking, with an extension cord, and tripped the electricity twice, so I have been doing some research as I'd like to provide charging ...

Good advice here...We used to have one for emergencies but didn't replace it when we changed the sofa as we just didn't use it enough. But it's a bigger house and we have a mezzanine we can use as wel ...

I notice ABB are offering to refund guests who have to cancel because of Coronavirus - meaning the owners will have to refund even if they don't manage to rebook those dates.

I couldn't find a refe ...

We used to stay regularly when we lived in London. Now, we live in a small chalet next to the big one and swap into it (usually) in spring and autumn. Agree with everything that's been said about spen ...

I always ask whether they want a tree, for both Christmas and NY weeks. Usually people pre-empt it by asking for one! I have a real tree (they get planted in on the bank in spring) and simple lights a ...

We get tons of families with small children, I wonder if we should try Tots to Travel. I always thought we would not be suitable due to the open staircase upstairs, up to the mezzanine (a magnet for s ...

Yes I like those ones though its worth noting they steam up like mad! So the window would probably need a clean on changeover.

We find it does help bookings, yes. It looks so nice. People often men ...

I honestly don't think they are possible without being on site or having a reliable maintenance person.
There are way too many opportunities for disaster. I'm not even sure it would be legal, as I d ...

Anyway, I agree completely that the more personal touch is a good ...
