Spacious self-contained 4-storey Victorian wing (nb not the entire house as in outside photos), sleeps 9 comfortably, up to 12 with squeeze using mattresses in communal spaces. Secluded walled courtyard & garden, private entrance, amazing views across the Common to nearby Wimbledon Village. Sky/Apple TV incl sky sports. Recently refurbished. Free parking right outside door.

The space

A short 5 minute walk to Wimbledon Village with beautiful views over the pond on Wimbledon Common towards the Village and very close to Cannizaro Park and Hotel. You have your own private entrance, courtyard garden and front door. Wimbledon is a popular, lively district, and only a 17 min train ride into central London(Waterloo). The wing is self-contained and mainly kept for our guests and is in an excellent state of decor and cleanliness. There are 3 rooms with double beds, 1 room with twin beds that can also change to a double, plus a study with a single bed (smallish so not suitable for large adult male probably!). An extra 3 mattresses can be used in communal areas, but will be a squeeze. It is ideal for large families with babies/children and grandparents. Children's toys and books aplenty.
(Sorry - recent changes to the Airbnb site have made some of our photos blurred - working on it!)

At the most it can take groups up to 12 (just!), having 3 extra proper mattresses and bedding that can be put in any of the bedrooms. High chairs, stair gates, changing station and travel cots also available. (Please note it is arranged on 4 storeys, so not ideal for disabled) 4 hairdryers provided. The wing is connected to the rest of the part of our house on the ground floor, so we are able to hear each other a bit occasionally but the double-doors between us are locked and sound-proofed so there is no interaction.

Guest access

The wing is the front right-hand third of the house as you face it (see photo). 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms plus extra toilet, sitting room with Sky/Apple TV, own kitchen/diner with dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer, study room with computer and printer or could be a 5th single bedroom. You have your own separate entrance. Wifi, large collection of DVD's, retro arcade machine and table football. One bedroom is a lovely large guest suite, the other 2 smaller but with great views over the common, all with comfortable beds. Basement double room also comfortable for a shorter stay, albeit located in kitchen communal area. Towels, linen, toilet paper, soap all provided. As well as some basics in food cupboards like condiments, oil, herbs. Small secluded courtyard garden and long thin front garden as shown in the photos. Parking on the side street is available using our guest permit for 2 or more cars. At worst you might have to park 100m away but normally you can park right outside the front door.

Interaction with guests

The wing is linked to the rest of the house by double-thickness doors which will be kept closed and locked. We (couple plus teenage kids) will be in the rest of the house but we will respect our guests' peace and privacy at all times.

Other things to note

The house is the former home of 'Sound of Music' star, Julie Andrews.

Check in is anytime after 3PM
Check out by 11AM

No extra guests over-night if not booked. If you're running late checking in or out, please contact us in advance so we know. We would ask for no very loud noise after 10 pm but normal conversation, TV etc is no problem. If you are intending on having some type of celebration and will be noisy after 10 that is usually not a problem if you arrange before booking, but it's not a suitable venue for full-on parties for younger guests with large numbers. We certainly don't mind crying babies, noisy kids at any time! As parents, we know they don't have a volume button! You can hear very little through the double doors anyway.
Sorry - no dogs - some future guests might have allergies. Smoking strictly outside only.
Check in is flexible if requested, but we would expect you to check in after 3pm and have checked out before 11am. If you would like longer or earlier just ask. Normally it won't be a problem but we need notice, thanks.

We loved staying at Tim and Kate’s comfortable, clean and spacious house in Wimbledon. It has beautiful outdoor spaces, great bedrooms (including a splendid master bedroom) with stunning views on Wimbledon Common, and a nice big homely kitchen. The foosball table was a surprising hit for adults and children alike, and the kids loved the arcade with 120+ retro games. The proximity to Wimbledon Common, Wimbledon Village, Cannizzaro house and Wimbledon Park make this location a dream for people who like to explore - my relatives loved discovering this part of London. Parking was easy, and the keyless entry is perfect especially when you have numerous people going in and out all the time. But the best thing about this listing were the hosts. Tim and Kate were not only super responsive, but also incredibly accommodating. The occasion for our stay was our wedding, and they bent over backwards to make us feel welcome and ensure we had the best time possible - even calming the groom’s nerves on one occasion! Would definitely stay there again.

The area is amazing. Right on the common - amazing views and 2 great pubs around the corner. Tim met us at the house and gave us a great overview of the house. House was very beautiful and everything was super tidy and clean. We have 3 kids and we played the video games machine and the foozball/table football table many time. The wing of the house is entirely distinct. No noise whatsoever. Separate entrance. Loads of space. A+++ Best Airbnb we have ever had. Stuart and Paige

The house is beautiful, set right on the Common, close to Wimbledon village with good transport links. Tim and Kate were very helpful and accommodating. and whilst we were told we could ask for anything we needed that was not in the house, we did not need to do so. We booked the house as our daughter was getting married in Wimbledon and this was great for her to come to so that she could get ready with all the family and the photographer. We also did Sunday lunch for the family and a few friends about 15 in total and there was everything that we needed - we just brought wine and food!! Would have no hesitation in recommending to anybody. Thank you so much. Stewart & Gill

I booked this stunning AirBnB in 2016, over a year before we were due to stay, as it was close to the location of my brother's wedding venue at Mordon Hall. Tim & Kate not only answered my many questions (far more than I've ever asked other AirBnB hosts) but also allowed us a quick trip to pop over to see the house so that we could plan where different family members would sleep. They even recommended a lovely hairdresser to come and do our hair on the morning if the wedding. The care and attention to detail of these hosts meant that this special weekend was triumphant. I could gush about the house for hours! The location, overlooking Wimbledon common is stunning. A walk across the common takes you into the village with many restaurants & high-end boutique shops. The house itself is highly impressive in the decor and amenities whilst retaining the feeling of a family home. The size of the living room and kitchen meant that we could cater for everyone. We enjoyed browsing a few books from the amazing library & the boys played on the games machine in the living room before changing into their groomsmen outfits!!!! Tim was good enough to clean the BBQ for us and checked that there was plenty of gas, allowing us to host a BBQ for family & friends on the day after the wedding. Extra cutlery was supplied and it made the whole weekend extra special. Numerous friends and family members commented that the weekend would not have been the same if we'd been in a hotel... too true. Many many thanks to Tim & Kate for all their help and for providing us a wonderful location to give the bride & groom a suitable celebration.

The house has all one wants for a family. Wimbledon village is so attractive and the Common perfect for children to play. Thoroughly recommended for a special birthday celebration. Tim welcoming and helpful.

Tim & Kate are a great host and their house is absolutely wonderful, very spacious, clean and tidy. Me and my family spent 2 days in the house; we were getting ready for my wedding. It was perfect for us (for small children too!). We highly recommend this house, it's a true gem in a stunning area.
