Other things to note
I open up my calendar 7 nights aweek nights, this tends to get booked up a lot for contractors, professors and locums, travellers ad Nurses however I welcome any guests with good reviews.

Saturday's gets booked up quickly, You can view the calendar for dates I have the property available. if your looking for a a full property to rent out for the weekend, then thisay be viable. However this would need a speedster discussion via Air bnb messages, this is certainly possible. Check in time is flexible and you can gain access to keys if i am not available by a master lock.

A happy go lucky guy who enjoys life. Professional guy who enjoys meeting new people. Personal trainer and Dancer while also working in HR. Like to keep busy. A Friendly guy who lives in Colchester. A clean 2 bedroom apartment set in the beautiful ground of Abby fields Colchester. Meeting all cultures is my aim as I love travelling to. Look forward to meeting you throughout your stay with me. Only one double bedroom available. 4 ft double bed. Maximum 2 guests. All travellers, locums, Doctors, Nurses, professors and contractors welcome. My reviews speak for themselves. As time evolved many of my guests are returning guests and are consistently regular bookings. I do get booked up very quickly. As my profile suggests, preference to guests who book 2 nights or more. This makes things easier to turn the room around and less turnover of guests in a week. I look forward to meeting you. Check in time can be from 1pm upon request depending on previous guests and turnaround times.
