I live in a boating community by Tower Bridge in London. The area is beautiful and unique, very central, yet very calm (we even have floating gardens and bee hives!) an excellent base to explore London. My boat is a beautiful old dutch barge and the living space is nice (see photos). I can't host all the time but have availability 15th - 23rd December.

You'll benefit from staying in a unique setting on the river next to an iconic central London landmark. I can show you around the local area, its interesting history, and the good places to eat and drink. The community is also very friendly (we have to be as we live on top of each other!) and in December there are always Xmas parties for those who want to integrate.
Boats need regular TLC and although I'm becoming more competent with DIY I'm always in need of help with the skilled things, like carpentry.
I'd particularly like someone with carpentry skills who can help me with making a table and some bespoke seating. I know the basics (and have the tools) but require expertise with design and making.
You'll have your own half of the boat comprising Living Room, Kitchen, Bathroom and double cabin with porthole views onto river. I will be cat sitting next door so although I'll be right there the space will be yours for the duration of your stay. I'll cook on a few evenings but generally I'll leave you to cater for yourself as you like.
A boat community is a great space to live but beware it is different (ie: sound really carries, access is over a neighbours boat, and plumbing works differently) so there is a need to be respectful of those things.
