The Space

Available for rent is a double room in a lovely 2 bedroom ground floor flat with a communal garden in East Sheen, a nice suburb of London, England in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. This well presented property has been newly refurbished throughout and comprises a contemporary open plan kitchen and reception area to share with nice hosts.

The room is bright and clean, furnished with a double bed, a private en suite shower room with toilet as well as Free Wi-Fi internet connection.

There are great transport links right outside the property, which makes it very easy to get around: Bus line 33 to Hammersmith Underground station (Piccadilly line) or Mortlake train station with access to the South West Trains going to Waterloo & Vauxhall train station.

To go to the center, it takes about +/- 30 minutes, depending where you want to go... You can travel for example to Knightsbridge and make a walk tour through the great Hyde Park, move along to the Wellington Arch, go to the famous Buckingham Palace, further stroll to the popular Westminster...

No matter through which airport or train station you use to arrive in London, there is always an easy way to get to us. Let us know on which airport you will arrive and we will help you how to find to us.

Our flat is only a few minutes walk from the peaceful Richmond Park, one of the largest Royal Parks in London. It takes you only 10 minutes by bus to go to Richmond centre with a range of nice shops.

East Sheen offers lots of shops, like Caffe Nero, The Fresh Parish Bakery, Thai Restaurants, Pizzerias, Hare & Hounds Pub, Tesco, Waitrose, Robert Dyas, Superdrug, Boots, HSBC, Santander, Natwest, Barclays, Post Office, Delicate Cleaning, Up & Running Shop, Beauty & Tanning Centre & many more…

• Wimbledon: 30 min. by train
• Waterloo: 25 min. by train (best way to go to London Eye & Westminster)

In London you don't need to worry to get around. There are lots of bus stops just in front of our door and the train station is just around the corner, which makes it very easy to plan your journey.

  • Paul & Claudine were the perfect hosts! They made us feel at home and free to come and go as we pleased. The room was clean and modern and the bathroom appeared to be new. The bed was very comfortable. Ideal for a single person or couple with great pubs and shops nearby. Very handy for trips into the city and Richmond as on good bus and train route.

  • The room was amazing. Very nice and clean. There was a nice welcome note with the wi-fi code. Towels nicely folded by the shower. World class hotel experience. The hosts are very friendly and nice to have a chat with. I thoroughly recommend everyone to pick this room!

  • To start things off, the flat was actually in Sheen, not Richmond like it said in the ad. The flat was very nice and our hosts (Paul and Claudine) were lovely. Paul greeted us when we arrived and welcomed us into the ground-floor flat. We were quickly shown our room plus en-suite and that was it. The ad shows off the entire flat, kitchen, living room and back garden - but as we were never shown around these areas, it was clear to us that our space was our room and bathroom only. The room and en-suite bathroom were nice and the bed was quite comfortable. The pillows were lifeless and old, therefore we had to go out and buy our own pillows. The wifi was dreadful - our phones and tablets struggled to ever get signal and our laptops were no better.

    Overall, nice flat, OK price, not great location as I was hoping for Richmond (much better links at the train station) like it had said in the ad and two lovely hosts.

    Response from Paul & Claudine:

    We want to apologize for the inconvenience about the location, this was published automatically by entering our address - we have updated it now. All our guests can feel free to use our communal reception room, as well as the kitchen as it is shown in our ad. We always prepare the guest room with love and cleanliness is our highest authority! Our wifi is fixed in the kitchen, so it should work smoothly in the room next door. Nevertheless, we do our best to provide our guests a pleasant stay with us and we always tell them if we could do anything for them - they just have to ask! We are pleased about every guest and we like to improve our service after each review.
