About this listing
The largest room in the house, with two (double-glazed) windows. Two shared bathrooms between three rooms. Fastest fibre optic broadband (wifi) included. Flatscreen TV. Incredible fast travel to Central London 16 mins to London Bridge (Tower of London etc) 22 mins Charing X (Big Ben etc). Most useful accessories provided so you don't have to bring them.
Located very close to Greenwich and Blackheath, but with exceptional fast transport into central London, this lovely bright room is the largest in the house, with two windows, and a very comfortable double bed, . There is plenty of storage. Downstairs is a Shower room with power shower, which is shared with two others and also a bathroom. The room has an iron/ironing board and kettle for tea/coffee and a hairdrier. There are electric adaptors for anyone with foreign plugs, shoe brushing kit and luggage scales, so you don't need to pack any of this. There is super fast fibre optic wireless broadband. Fresh towels are provided (free of charge). For anyone traveling "super light" with hand luggage only, I can provide toiletries so all you have to bring is your toothbrush. Please request this in advance. There is a "help yourself" breakfast of cereal, toast and tea/ coffee included in the price. As I am a professional opera singer, and antique dealer, you will be sharing my house with a grand piano (you may hear it occasionally) and some really nice antiques. Please note that there is no smoking in the house, but you are welcome to smoke in the garden. There is a microwave for you to heat up meals if you prefer not to eat out all the time. Travel is amazing - Ladywell station is moments away, with London Bridge only 16 mins (with its connections to the underground system) and Charing Cross or Cannon St only 22 mins. The DLR is one stop away at Lewisham. Greenwich is a seven-minute bus ride, and the DLR will take you to Stratford in less than half an hour. There are loads of night buses too for those late nights! There is free parking in the nearby roads. As I work full time, I can't always be at home for your arrival, but if I'm not, I can leave you a key outside, as there is a key safe. Full instructions will be given after booking is confirmed. I am looking forward to making you welcome! I also have another room available, so check that out too. https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/872544
Wifi is super fast, and included in the price you pay. There are two bathrooms shared between three rooms, so there is never a problem with access. One has a shower and one has a bath, both have basins and toilets. You help yourself to the breakfast, as I work quite long hours, , but this means you can have it at a time to suit yourself, should you have had a late night. The kitchen has a microwave, and cooker if you want to heat up meals at other times. There is a garden, and I occasionally have smokers, who are permitted to smoke in the garden, but not in the house.
Interaction with guests
I am always very happy to chat to guests, and to help them plan their trips in London. As I have lived here for over 25 years, I know all the insider tips about the quickest way to travel around, and I can help you plan your day. If you tell me the principal attraction that you want to see, I will be happy to tell you what else is in the same or nearby areas, meaning you can concentrate your day with seeing things that are close to each other, rather than traveling across London and spending lots of time on public transport. I do work long hours so please be understanding if I am out at work, but if I am around, I give of my time willingly - does that sound fair?
I expect my guests to be quiet and respectful, but this has never been a problem so far. Obviously I'd like the room to be left nice and tidy, ready for cleaning. The kitchen is available for breakfast, and there is a microwave in the kitchen, so that you can heat up meals, as it's no fun to eat out all the time. You also have a kettle in the room. I want to make your stay as enjoyable as possible, so If there is anything that you need, or want to know, you only need to ask. Please note that smoking is not allowed inside the house, but only in the garden.

I am a professional opera singer and singing teacher, and I run my own antiques business specialising in silver, glass and jewellery. I once trained as a chef, and love cooking. I have a garden, which is a real passion also. My interests also run to art and interior design, and I have just finished refurbishing a flat that I own in Glasgow, Scotland. I am an avid reader, I like to meet people, and entertain, and I speak fluent french and Italian.
