If you are part of a larger group, or have any specific sleeping arrangements, please inform us in your message so that we can accommodate your needs.
Refuse should be bagged and tied before disposing of it appropriately, as outlined in our welcome booklet. This allows for a smooth waste management system and ensures a clean and tidy environment for all concerned.
We have dehumidifiers in the kitchen and both bedrooms - it is important that you use these devices when cooking, ironing or drying clothes to prevent the accumulation of moisture.
The outer windows of the flat are professionally cleaned by a contractor every two weeks, typically on a Monday or Tuesday. To maintain your privacy during these cleaning days, you may want to consider keeping the blinds closed.
For longer stays we conduct inspections of the flat approximately every fourteen days, or whenever necessary.
During these visits we aim to address any minor maintenance issues that arise. Rest assured we will provide you with prior notice of these visits and make every effort to accommodate your schedule.
HEATING & ELECTRICITY
Power is included in the cost of your stay.
To offer competitive nightly rates we have priced our accommodations based on fair power usage.
During the colder months we ensure the living room is heated to a comfortable 21 degrees Celsius, while other rooms are set a couple of degrees lower. Overnight, when guests are typically asleep, we lower the thermostat until approximately 6am.
The flat is alarmed via 'Ring' - we set the code to be the last four digits of your phone number.
External cameras monitors the main door and balcony - these are normally only accessed if a concern is raised.
The residents who stay in the building will appreciate friendly visitors to the flat who show mutual respect. It is deemed deeply inappropriate to disturb the residents of the building who are going about their normal, everyday lives i.e. work etc. Guests will have their stay ended early if any disturbances are reported.
You will be asked to send a copy of photographic identification for each guest staying at our place via our messaging platform.
You should only ever have the number of guests you have booked for in the apartment, and these guests will have provided us with their identifications before arriving.
If you book this flat you will be held responsible for both your own actions and the actions of your companions.
In the event that any damage occurs or if our space is neglected, you will cover the costs of repairing or replacing the affected items.
We kindly request that you leave the flat in the same neat, clean, and tidy condition as it was when you arrived - this allows our prices to be competitive.
We expect you to leave the flat, more or less, as you found it - at the end of your stay our cleaner carries out a basic service that includes washing used towels and bed linen, with some hygiene cleaning in the toilet and kitchen (we have budgeted for this in your costings).
The cleaner does NOT pick up your rubbish, dispose of your belongings or remove stains from furnishings - we do not plan or budget for this type of cleaning and the £250 bill we receive for a domestic cleaner will be charged to you.
We do NOT wash or put away any of your used crockery, pots, pans or utensils. We also do not expect to clean the oven, hob, microwave or fridge freezer after your stay - we do not plan or budget for this type of cleaning and the £250 bill we receive for a kitchen porter will be charged to you.
We are NOT pet friendly.
This policy is in place to ensure a pleasant experience for all our guests.
Accommodating pets requires a more extensive and unattainable cleaning schedule, which would compromise our availability and quality of service. Quick turnarounds can also result in unpleasant odours lingering in the property.
You will be charged all losses incurred as a result of you bringing an animal to the flat - this could involve associated damage, cleaning costs or even accommodating future guests elsewhere until the matter is resolved.
Our goal is to provide a comfortable and clean environment for all our guests, and we appreciate your cooperation in maintaining this standard
Our license does not permit gatherings or parties.
Our license, and local law, forbids smoking and vaping in or around the property. Smoking within the premises will result in a fine of £2500, which may be increased depending on any associated damages.
We expect and appreciate respectful guests, however not all individuals are aware of common courtesy towards our belongings hence the need to emphasise these rules.
Thank you for your cooperation in respecting our guidelines.

Billy and Louise are definitely super hosts. We rented their pineapple flat for most of August and it was amazing. If we had any issues or questions their communication and response time was within minutes. I 100% recommend renting from Billy and family. For any future trips home I’ll for sure be looking up Billy and Louise’s flats. Thank you so much for accommodating us.

William kindly allowed our family to check in early - being from Australia and carting our luggage on public transport, being able to drop off our bags early was very much appreciated.
The apartment is functional and stylish, the choice of artwork and furniture really makes this apartment feel like a home away from home.
Plenty of cups, bowls, plates etc this apartment is also well equipped for a longer term stay.
The modern bathroom is lovely and has gorgeous blue tiles. The area itself was quiet and within a close walk to the train station and local shops
