Double room by Thames, SW London
A lovely and spacious family house by the River Thames in Fulham, with a double room to rent and when available, two additional bedrooms for children or additional guests. You will have your own bathroom (one is en suite and the other is shared), TV, wifi and fantastic bus routes to central London from the end of the road. Most of my bookings tend to come through this listing so if there is no availability showing, it is still worth messaging me to see if one of the other rooms is free. Alternatively, (email hidden)/rooms/705526 and airbnb.co.uk/rooms/705523 too.
Hammersmith and Putney Bridge tube stations are about a 20 minute walk away along the river and I am close to the river bus too if you prefer the scenic route to the City. I'm close to Heathrow Airport (20 minute drive or direct Tube line from Hammersmith). Lovely, leafy river walks one minute away and 20 minutes on the bus to the shopping district of Knightsbridge and the museums of South Kensington. Unusually large garden too, so lots of green space for you to relax, quite rare for London! This area of Fulham is quite residential, but roads are quiet and parking is readily available ( £2. 20 per hour on the meter between 9 and 5 should you have a car ) . Please note, there are times of the year, when demand is high, that my longer term discounts will not apply.
I am pretty relaxed and happy to try and accomodate your plans, but ideally if guests can check in after 3pm that would be prefereable. I am happy to provide a continental breakfast that I will leave out until 10am. Check out for overnight guests by 10am and longer term guests, I will give you a set of keys to come and go as you wish. No smoking inside, but have a nice, big garden if you are desperate! There is metered car parking right outside the door if you do have a car and if not, the bus stop is right at the top of the road with the closest tubes being Hammersmith or Putney Bridge. These are about a 20 minute walk away or a 3-4 minute bus journey. Guests are not permitted to invite friends to the house unless pre-agreed with myself and certainly no 'friends' may stay overnight. If longer term guests should require an overnight guest, this will be at my discretion, depending on how busy the house is at that time, and will be chargable - an additional £30 a night.
Debbie was a relaxed, warm and very welcoming host. She was completely flexible in allowing us to arrange our comings and goings to suit ourselves. By chance she was not fully booked when we were there and she even offered us a choice of rooms. Both available rooms were beautifully presented and very comfortable. We had a wonderful time and loved her home, and Debbie herself made the overal experience a great one to remember. We'll certainly be back and we would whole-heartedly recommend it to anyone.
I had a delightful double bedroom in the basement - don't be put off this basement suite is light and airy, private and great. Lovely home in a great area. Debbie is a wonderful host and very welcoming. I felt instantly at home and cared for. The only drawback was parking on the Saturday as the local football team - Fulham - were playing a match so there was no parking allowed outside the house all day. But matches are not that frequent and I just made a plan and went out early so it was not a problem for me. The station is a 15 minute walk away and the bus stop is less than 5 minutes so you don't need a car anyway.
The breakfast was a decent continental and filled me up till lunchtime. Thank you Debbie! I loved my 3 days with you and next time I am in London I will certainly stay with you.
Debbie has a lovely home in a quiet street. The house is very warm and inviting and I had a very comfortable stay. Debbie is very easygoing and welcoming. I arrived much later than I had said and Debbie was completely relaxed about it. I knew the area well, having lived nearby some years ago, so it suited me getting to where I worked. I look forward to staying again.
Debbie was a great host and her house was really lovely. Was made to feel very welcome, other house guests were very friendly and location right by river was fab. Would love to stay again when next in London.
I've reviewed twice as booked in for 2 nights but separately! Just want to reiterate my previous review that it was great to stay at Debbie's. Totally safe, welcoming, friendly and warm welcome. Debbie is very relaxed, had brilliant communication from her before arriving & was very calm environment to stay in. Gorgeous house, right by river, good location to get around (espec to south ken, museums, hyde park etc)...
definitely would recommend to others and would totally stay again when visiting London. Thanks Debbie!
Debbie is a very warm host and incredibly friendly, her house is beautiful and in a lovely quiet location. However make sure if you are a couple to ask about the size of the bed/ sofa bed before booking!
All three of my beds are standard 4.6" width double beds and no one has ever mentioned this to be a problem before. Although your folks were on a sofa bed frame, I put a proper sturdy orthopaedic mattress on it 2 years ago and took off the sofa bed mattress. I appreciate that if they are used to a Queen or a King size bed, this might feel a little cramped so I am sorry if they suffered any discomfort.
I stayed with Debbie for 2 nights when visiting London for a weekend. Her house is lovely and is in a quiet residential area, close to the River Thames , on a good bus route and only 20 minutes walk from Hammersmith underground. The room in the basement is cosy and has everything you need, with your own bathroom. Would recommend this as a place to stay and would be happy to stay there again should I need to be in that part of London.

I live with my two children in a lovely family Fulham terraced house with unusually large garden. I am very social and enjoy meeting new people so thought the combination of that and earning some money to help with the mortgage seemed a good plan! I have two spare double rooms and as my children are at boarding school, there is extra space available term time if a family should be interested. One of the rooms I use for longer term lodgers so that is also a possibility when available. I very much look forward to hearing from you.
