About this listing

The Space

We live in a large house in Southend-on-Sea and now the children have gone we have lots of spare room! We were hosting for about a year in Richmond Virginia with great reviews (please take a look) and now having done some travelling we have moved back to the UK and want to start hosting in Southend.

Your bedroom has been newly decorated and you would probably have exclusive use of the bathroom next to your bedroom but this is not guaranteed. This bathroom has a bath with overhead shower. The shower is quite powerful but is low for a tall person wanting to wash their hair every day!

We are ten minutes from two train lines which run into London in around 45/55 minutes. We are five minutes from the seafront and the Victorian Cliff Gardens and The Cliffs Pavillion.
There is WiFi and off street parking.

We are about a ten minute drive from Southend Airport and I would be willing to give you a lift there if you need it. If you wish to leave your car whilst you go on holiday there would be a charge of £30 per week payable in advance.

I would consider long term rentals so message me if you are interested in this and we can discuss price.

Guest Access

For one night stays- you will have access to your bedroom and access to a bathroom - the one nearest your room has a bath with an over shower. You can obviously use the kitchen for breakfast. I will provide basic breakfast staples - cornflakes, bread, coffee, tea, milk, sugar.

For longer stays you have above but are welcome to also use the kitchen for light meal preparation. A small separate fridge will be made available. I will provide basic breakfast staples - cornflakes, bread, coffee, tea, milk, sugar. You are also able to use the washing machine.

For long term Monday to Friday rental we can discuss use of kitchen and living areas.

Interaction with Guests

We are both in and out of the house with various commitments but we will be available for checking in and out.

Southend-on-Sea, United Kingdom · Member since June 2011

a fun loving young in outlook 52 year old!! Married for 30 years with three grown up children. One is an insurance broker, one is a chef and one is an insurance underwriter. They all live and work in London. My husband travels a lot with his job and when away we like to see as many other places as we can, so airbnb works really well for us. I hosted in Richmond Virginia when we lived there and am now trying it in sunny Southend!
