Close to central Southampton, the University, nightlife and family-friendly activities including Southampton Common.
It is within walking distance or a short bus ride of the Universities, train station and city centre. We are also close to Southampton Airport, Ageas Bowl and the New Forest.
Children and pets welcome. Blowup mattress available.
We can provide parking permits for on-road parking.
Check in/out fairly flexible, just get in touch and we'll do our best to accommodate you.
This is a large double bedroom in a cosy Victorian terraced house. We have lived here for over 3 years and have put a lot of time and effort into making it a homely and comfortable place to stay.
There is currently one large drawer, a hanging rail and shelves for you to store your clothes and things.
Acesso de hóspedes
You'll have access to a shared bathroom (sharing with my partner and I). Unless you're staying with us for a while, we'd rather you didn't cook in the kitchen, but you are welcome to use it for breakfast and drinks. Please note that we do not serve breakfast.
If you are staying long term (more than one week) on the reduced rate, then you can use the kitchen to prepare meals and we will clear some space for you to store your food. You'll also be welcome to use the washing machine and tumble dryer, but please ask first so we can show you where everything is.
You're welcome to go out into the garden, but it's a bit wild!
Interação com hóspedes
I (Polly) work either at home or in Bristol; I'm happy to help, but it may have to be via phone. My partner Chris does shift work nearby; if he's not working he will be happy to help. If I'm not around you are welcome to text me any questions and I will get back to you ASAP. If anything is urgent then please call me.
Outras coisas a ter em conta
We try to be flexible with check-in time, and you should be able to drop bags off anytime, but you might not be able to access the room until the afternoon depending on when we can clean it after the previous guest. Please contact me for more info.
We want to make your stay as easy and enjoyable as possible so please do tell us if there is anything we can do to help.
We have feather and synthetic pillows and duvets, so please let us know if you are allergic to feathers. We also have additional blankets and duvets if you are cold.
Check-in time is as flexible as possible but we can't guarantee that the room will be cleaned before around 5 pm because of our work commitments. We can always leave a key for you to enter the house to drop off your luggage. Please let us know what your arrival plans are so we can accommodate you as much as possible. Check out time is also as flexible as possible, but if we need to clean the room for the next guest we might have to ask you to move your bags to the kitchen until you're ready to leave.
Although there's no smoking in the house (due to our insurance) you are welcome to smoke in the garden. We have noticed that some guests have smoked in the room - please don't - there is an ashtray in the garden.
A partir do dia 17 de Novembro de 2017 - 19 de Novembro de 2017 a estadia mínima é de 30 noites.
I am a laid back and open minded person who welcomes people from all walks of life. I used to travel a lot when I was a marine scientist, but I'm unfortunately desk based these days. But the best places I've been are definitely the Arctic - watching a mother polar bear swim with her two cubs is a moment I will never forget - and South America.
I try to be positive and not moan about things that really aren't that bad in the grand scheme of things. Not always easy but I'm definitely getting better.
