About this listing
Pls give an E.T.A even if its a guess, thanks.
Our street is a very mixed community with friendly family neighbors on both sides of this typical through terrace.
One single private room. There is a double private room available on occasion.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO GIVE ME YOUR ESTIMATED ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE TIMES WITH YOUR RESERVATION OR FIRST MESSAGE, EVEN IF ITS NOT EXACT.
Hi. I Generally get a great response from guests so I hope you will enjoy it also.
This is a professional shared house of 2. We are welcoming but often busy.
Please be aware that kitchen is small and sometimes limited use for guests because there are few of us sharing you may not be able to use it easily 24/7. There is a small shelf for you in the fridge and a small shelf in the the kitchen for your use. We have basics like oil, salt and pepper available for you to use.
Breakfast is usually easier than evening because we are on different schedules.
The single bed has an excellent foam mattress and plenty of storage for clothes. Bedding is included and I can provide a clean towel.
The house is well kept and I have never slept on it myself but have been told many times that the Ikea sofa bed (double room) is comfortable.
The room will be yours for your stay but the cleaner may need access in there if you are staying while she comes on a weekday.
Chapelallerton is a great place to head for bars, cafe's pubs and restaurants and is a short walk. Town isn't too far and we are on two major bus routes if you don't want to walk.
We are also relatively close to Leeds arena.
I mainly prefer to accept single guests for the single room. The double room is also our living room when not in AirBnb use so if you requesting it, think about making a good personal request and your profile must be in a good state.
Please let me know what time you plan to arrive to and leave when you request your stay.
Very much look forward to hearing from you and hope I can help you enjoy your time here in Leeds.
The current down side is that the shower is starting to look rather shabby, it works perfectly well but is due a refurb and will get one when I can afford it next year.
Look forward to hearing from you,
Bobak and Housemates x
Kitchen (when possible), bathroom, back garden (basic).
Interaction with Guests
'Interaction with Guests' - This will depend on how busy I am, you are, and how much interaction you may or may not want! I may or may not be present no guarantees but I'l certainly make sure I'm around to welcome you and make sure you have what you need., and answer any q's..
I booked this stay for my daughter and friend, they needed somewhere to stay when on a course in Leeds. They were very happy with their stay, greeted warmly on arrival, lots of time and care was given to tell them how to get around, buses to catch and were to go. They felt very at home and this great stay has definitely contributed to their strong feelings of a need to return. Thank you.
Bobak was great, he met me off the train even though he said he wasn't going to be able. Room and house was as described. Everyone in the house was really nice and if I needed to stay in an AirBnB in Leeds again I would absolutely apply here again.
It was wonderful to stay in the Sholebroke Villa again, there are always lovely people there to help :)
During my time in Bobak's House was amazing! Lovely flatmates (David, Vanessa, Olivia and Bobak) and lovely environment. They made me feel at home.
Thanks guys! I recommend this house all people who wants to step into Leeds life or wants to be an authentic experience!
Bobak was very kind,friendly, welcoming and really nice company! He made us feel at home and made sure we were happy and had everything we needed. The room and was very cozy and relaxing to be in - had a really good nights sleep! Thank you Bobak!
Bobak is very nice, he help me, and tried understand me, with my english basic. Definitely is a great place!
First of all many thanks to Bobak to accept my last minute request and one month stay in this house.
Bobak is great host and very helpful about everything, he was always welcome to every questions.
The house was like a home for me, we had dinner, nice conversation, breakfast etc. People I shared the house are great, kind, friendly and talented in dancing and music.
They always opened the conversation, giving advice about Leeds, British culture, food etc. I learnt a lot of things from them, especially in English.
I am very happy to meet all of you, see you soon.
The room was clean and tidy, it is enough for one person. It is at the top floor and it is good for the relaxing time.
The house is quite close the city center, it takes 10 mins. There are two bus stations which are 5 mins walking distance to the house.
I recommended this house to stay and live, many thanks for everything.
