The search for a flat in London started in the early ‘90s when my workload there seemed to make it sensible to have a home away from home. The plan was to find a place in a familiar part of town where it would always be a pleasure to be. Good fortune and timing led to a fabulous, centrally located flat surrounded by all the amenities that make living away from home easy and fun.
Because I would only be in London intermittently, we decided to offer the flat to friends and professional colleagues who travelled there regularly. The hope was to identify people who would appreciate the benefits of a flat like ours and would look after it well. After more than 10 years of taking in friends, we (and they) feel the venture has been a success.
If the flat runs well, and seems particularly welcoming, it is because of those who look after it. Rita Jacobs, who lives around the corner and is available to answer our guests’ questions, sees that the flat is filled with flowers and start-up groceries. Daisy, is our wonderful cleaning lady. She comes in once a week.
