This room is really large, twice a big as the next biggest room. It comprises three areas:-the rear section with a TV, work desk and clothes hanging space; the middle of the room has an en suite bathroom (shower only); and the front is a sitting area, a queen-size bed, a closet and a large window overlooking the stream.

There is also a floor double air-bed mattress available for an extra charge of $10 per night.

The space
When I started my Airbnb career, in June 2016, I really had no idea what was required of a host so I provided what I thought a visitor unfamiliar with the area, country or even continent would want. It seems to have worked since, for last seven consecutive periods, I have been awarded the title of 'Super-host'. Guests have been very happy and have enjoyed their stay with me and I have enjoyed meeting and getting to know them. Come and stay!

My house looks English and I am English. Be warned, you might experience some laconic Anglo-Saxon humour. I can accommodate six people in three rooms. So if you want to stay with an elderly Brit being as Jeeves-like (but not Fawlty-ish) as he can, then my rooms will suit you well.

The house is almost elegant and I am very proud of it. It is a large house, almost a 100 years old but fully modernized. It is situated in the historic neighbourhood of Westerwood comprising mostly early 20th century houses, just to the west of downtown Greensboro. You can see downtown from my house yard. But it is rather like living in the country - in the middle of a town.

Guest access
Over the years, many guests have stayed in the various rooms for months at a time which reflects how comfortable each room is.

The fully-equipped kitchen can be used. I allocate fridge and cupboard space for your personal use. There are basic food materials and fruit available to you and I will provide breakfast items but you wouldn't want to eat anything I'd cooked, so you should prudently cook your own.

The house also has a living room and kitchen (both with TVs) and a dining room all of which guests are free to use.

Other amenities include a laundry, steam iron with ironing board and a hair-dryer (found in the common bathroom).

Outside the house there is a fairly large water garden where you can sit and enjoy the tinkling of the water – very conducive to deep thought. Just across the road, there is a stream and a running path which extends for miles either way. These are always very popular with guests.

I assume you'll be respectful of other guests and their rooms. For your security each room has it’s own lock.

There is also a small house safe where you can store your valuables. I have bicycles for guest use, just ask and I’ll show you where they are kept.

Other things to note
Once you have booked, I will send you detailed instructions so that you can gain entry to the house and your room at any time after noon on your arrival date. My guests often comment how easy the process is.

Greensboro, known as the Gate City because of the confluence of several railroad lines from the north to the Deep South, still commands a vital position because of its various Interstates. Thus exploring North Carolina – a very beautiful but a seemingly little known state – is rewarding. With the Blue Ridge Mountains (Asheville, Winston-Salem and Tennessee) to the west and the coast (Raleigh, the Outer banks and Kitty Hawk) to the east within a few hours easy drive.

High Point is about 12 miles away where you can attend the bi-annual furniture market or shop for top class furniture all year round. Winston-Salem, a really old, interesting city, is around 30 miles west.

There are also plenty of attractions in Greensboro itself. An Olympic size swimming pool complex, more small breweries than you could stagger from, all the multi-cultural dining you could want, along with museums, exhibitions (including the Civil Rights Museum at the old Woolworths) and the site of the Battle of Guilford Courthouse – there would be plenty for you to do within City limits.

So come and savor this house and this City. I will do my best to make your stay both pleasant and memorable.

My house is located in Westerwood neighborhood which is very old, tranquil and picturesque place; great for relaxing, exploring and walking. There’s also a concrete walking path across the street from the house which goes for many miles, through parks and greenways.

I am a 80 year old widower and retiree. I enjoy spending my time going for walks and working on carpentry projects. I am an avid church goer, but I'm not pushy about religion. I have a granddaughter whom I care for deeply and sometimes babysit in the afternoons (but she does not live with me). Having been born and raised in England, I still retain my British accent, however I have lived in Greensboro (and this house) for almost 40 years. My loves in life are church, classical music, my two daughters, my grand-daughter and grand-son and Indian food. My favorite films are Brief Encounter, Murphy's War, and the Godfather, but generally I love the film medium.

During your stay
When I started my Airbnb career in June 2016, I really had no idea what was expected/required of a host. So I provided what I thought a visitor to an unknown location, country or even continent would want. It seems to have worked because, for each period thereafter, I have been awarded the title of 'Super-host'. That must mean that guests have been very happy and have enjoyed their stay with me. And I have enjoyed meeting and getting to know them. Check out the thousands of accolades which departing guests had been kind enough to submit. Come and stay!
I am now in my early eighties, live in the house and I love classical music. I have a beautiful grand-daughter (Ava – 4) and a handsome grand-son (Roman - 2) who spend an hour or so a day with me, keeping me young. Quite often guests bring their children and it's so sweet to see them play together.

I am usually around the house and available to help with whatever you need.
