We live in an end terrace large 5 bedroom house very close to the centre of York, surrounded by York's Ancient City Wall literally outside the door, which protects the house from city noise and traffic.
The City Centre is only 5 minutes walk away and its a 10-15 minutes walk to the train station (which connects with London in 2 hours, Leeds in 20 mins, Edinburgh in 1 hour and Scarborough in 1 hour)
We have another room in the same house on Airbnb. If this one is full, check out the other room. See "Quiet & Cosy in City Centre". They are linked to this page via my personal profile
Its a large 5 bedroom shared house and there are 3 of us living here; Jelle a photographer from Holland, Jelle's 12 year old daughter Bella who comes to stay on weekends, and Eilif who is living with us in York for 6 months.
We may not always be around as we all have busy lives and will be coming and going but we are always reachable to make your stay as comfortable as possible. You will get a key for the house so you can come and go as you like.
The neighbourhood called Bishophill and has a good community spirit.
There is on street parking in front of the house via permit (you can get parking tickets from us to use for £2 per day when needed)
There are lots of cafe's and restaurants and pubs within 10 minutes walk from our house.
There is an enclosed garden at the back, also great for relaxing in the summer and for secure bike storage.
The bedroom is clean, has a double bed, plenty of drawer space and fast wireless internet. The room also has a table and chair. Fresh linen and bath towels provided. This is my daughter Bella's room when she lives here from sunday till tuesday mornings. She wanted to make some extra money from her room while she was not here and staying at her mum's so by renting this room you are directly adding to her savings!
We have a large Living Room with tv, dvd and free view box which you are welcome to use.
We have 2 shared bathrooms with 2 showers and a bath.
Kitchen - There are cooking facilities available, please feel free to use our kitchen if you would like to cook. There are some shelves in the kitchen for you to use and store you things. There is fridge space too if you need it. There is also a washing machine for you to use if you need to.
Having travelled extensively and using using Airbnb on several occasions we think it's a great way to stay in a city benefitting from local knowledge.
The house might not have the most modern decor but it has character and charm, it is clean and comfortable and it has a great location and handy parking.
A little factoid: the former Mayor of York lived used to live in this house.
If you have any questions feel free to ask, we want to make sure you enjoy your stay and we therefore aim to please.
Please also get in touch when it looks as though the calendar is booked up or check out the other rooms linked to this page.
Because of our central position we get booked up quickly so get in touch if you'd like to stay.
We look forward to hearing from you and to making your stay in York easy and enjoyable!
Jelle has this down to a science. His place is beautiful and in a perfect location. I hope we get to meet next time!
very very very nice room belong to her daughter. It is decorated like a zoo!!! Hahahahaha
A nice quiet place not to far from the rail. Just what I needed.
I absolutely cannot recommend Jelle's place enough. My husband and I were so impressed by every aspect of our accommodations. The location was easy to reach and lovely--and the view of the city walls from the room is so beautiful. Jelle made us feel so welcome, by having a such a smooth check-in process, and providing plenty of information. Seriously, all the information we wanted was waiting for us in our room before we even had a chance to ask a question! In addition, everything was clean and incredibly comfortable and charming. We will compare every AirBnB stay to his place from now on--he sets the standard very high!
It was a perfect place to stay because it was just inside the city walls and everywhere was walking distance. Jelle was very friendly and helpful. He helped out with parking and entry into some attractions; he took a photo for me with his I-phone to provide proof for verification and he was happy to sit and chat at night with me as we watched a DVD together. He was the perfect host.
