About this listing
Hi, thanks for viewing my flat. The room is bright and cosy. It's a very quiet restful place. Only a 7 min walk to Surbiton train station. Located in a quiet, safe residential area. Best suited to mature travellers who like a peaceful haven.
ABOUT THE ROOM
The room is comfortably furnished with a double bed, hanging space and a side table. A big towel, cosy bed linen and an international adapter plug are all provided for your use.
I'm a creative designer and yoga teacher, who is upbeat, friendly and chilled. I work from home some of the time.
There is a shared kitchen, dining room and bathroom. The bathroom has a bath (with a hand shower). Wifi is included. Tea and coffee are available for you to help yourself to all day (breakfast is not provided).
Interaction with Guests
It is important to me that my guests feel welcome and relaxed. I also like to give my guests space, should they need it.
Surbiton has a lot to offer. There is a large Waitrose, health food shops, local shops, hairdressers and an array of restaurants and farmers market on the weekends. The river is only a stone throw away, if you fancy running or mountain biking along the river. Kingston town centre is about a 15minute walk away. It's an incredibly safe neighbourhood too with a real sense of community.
Surbiton train station is 7 minute walk away. There are also an extensive bus route at the end of the road, for Kingston, Tolworth, Hounslow, Richmond, Teddington, Twickenham, Hinchley Wood and Esher to name a few.
Other Things to Note
Every working day is different for me. Please contact the host to agree a check in time around work hours. Check out time is no later than 11am on any given day.
Out of consideration, after 10pm please do not cook or take a bath.
Non-paying guests are not permitted in the property.
The usual wash up your own mugs and dishes and keep the bathroom tidy - leaving both kitchen and bathroom as you find it - would be appreciated. Food to be stored in the kitchen and not the bedroom.
No smoking property and no shoes in the house.
I'm located in a quiet residential area, so please be mindful of my neighbours (and myself), if you come in late.
Gillian-what a wonderful host! The place was great, clean and really welcoming! I really loved the room, exactly as desribed in her airbnb listening. I loved the fact that I felt very comfortable the moment I entered Gillian's home. The location is very convenient too, close to the train station and busses.
I am hoping to stay in Gillian's place again. She is a very kind, helpful and fun person!
Hopefully we will meet again :)
Thanks once again.
A fantastic nights stay. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit. This was my first AirBnB experience and Gillian has exceeded all my expectations. I was looked after so well. Thank you. Highly recommend.
Gillian's place was like a little tranquil haven, which was, for me, the perfect place to relax after a days work. The room was fab - clean, bright and airy. The rest of the flat was also lovely, and I loved Gills little yogi touches. Gillian herself is so friendly and welcoming, even accommodating me when I requested to stay at the very last minute. Overall, this was exactly what I was looking for - would highly recommend!
Gillian was a fabulous and friendly host who really made me feel at home. Beautiful residence in a convenient spot, close to transport and local amenities. Bedroom was private and very comfortable. Highly recommended.
Been a pleasure staying with Gillian, comfortable bed, lovely neighbourhood and excellent host(ess)
Gillian is a warm and welcoming host. She immediately made me feel at home. When I got back to the room later in the evening, she had left a glass of water with a note next to my bed. Very thoughtful! The room is spotless and located in a very quiet community that nevertheless has a plethora of great pubs and small shops (do check out near by Kingston, only a short 10 minute walk away along the Thames).
Everyhting perfect: Gillian is the nicest host, the house is close to Surbiton railway station and the room stylish, clean, tidy, and quiet. See you soon !
