The SpaceOur guest room is large, very bright and refurbished and is on its own floor of our completely remodelled Edwardian home. We have hosted lots of people through other sites and have lots of good reviews we can send you.
We are experienced hosts and often host discerning students as well as young people on work experience as we are located so conveniently for Kingston University and Royal Holloway University. We prefer to take in guests for a minimum of 2 weeks if possible but a few nights last minute is fine. We are ideally located for anyone looking for a really nice place to stay without the price or restrictions of a hotel room.
The room has double fitted wardrobe, chest of drawers, new bed and mattress with memory foam topper, bedside table, lamp, bedding, linen and towels, hairdryer to use, toiletries, television, radio, information and books on London. There is also a small ensuite shower room. There are lovely double doors which open up to a view over the garden.
The garden itself has a lovely deck and a garden that is perfect for relaxing in the evening sun with a glass wine after a hard day's sightseeing or studying!
Wireless internet access is included as is the use of the washing machine and all facilities.
Sunbury is a very pleasant, safe, residential neighbourhood on the Thames. There are some lovely riverside pubs and a few restaurants nearby but there are a huge number a short distance away. This is not Central London (the buses are still red – we are not out in the sticks!) but just on the edge of South West London with good access for Hampton Court, Kew Gardens, Teddington, Windsor, Twickenham, Richmond.
Train station at Sunbury is a 10 minute walk away for frequent direct trains to Central London. The bus stop is virtually outside the door. This will takes you to Hampton Court in about 10 minutes. The great shopping centre of Kingston is 15 mins by train or 20 by bus. Twenty minutes from Heathrow and 45 from Gatwick. Great car access for M3/M25/M4.
Swimming pool and leisure centre walking distance, small grocery stores and huge Tesco nearby, walled garden, parks, boat hire, walks, golf. Various businesses and language schools within a short commute. I teach English as a foreign language and can offer one-2-one lessons as well as tours of London and relocation assistance.
I ma happy to collect you from Heathrow Airport or Gatwick, Richmond, Victoria etc for less than you would pay a cab. Guest AccessFull access to the eat in kitchen and garden and your own ensuite room. Lounge use whenever we are not using it and sometimes when we are. Interaction with GuestsWe love to get to know our guests a little and most guests (we do lots of bookings through another site) have stayed in touch and many are good friends. That said we like to have a chat and then get on with what we need to do, relax etc. We are busy but happy to help when you need anything. The NeighborhoodIt is quiet, green, safe and attractive. Close to the river and picturesque. All this but very close to the M3 and M25 and decent links to London and nearby areas with great facilities eg Richmond, Kingston. You can even hire a boat nearby, have a coffee in a walled garden from the 18th century, get a great curry, have a pint by the river and a swim in the local pool. Getting AroundFree parking on the road outside. Easy to park. Bus stops a minutes walk away and Sunbury train station 10 minutes walk away.
