About this listing
Just look at the reviews! A fun and relaxing place to stay.
Very large bedroom available in a 4 bedroom house in Teddington, Middlesex. The bedroom has 2 very large fitted double wardrobes, a fitted chest of 5 drawers, vanity unit / desk with 8 drawers. There's a TV with freeview and wifi internet. Private Shower room for guests. The pricing is for one occupant and second occupant pricing is negotiable. This room is designed for 2 adults only and it is not possible to accommodate young children as a third guest. If you are only booking for a single occupancy please look at my other guest bedroom (www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/1011062) as if possible I try to keep the double free for double occupancy. I have a full size snooker table if you fancy a game and dartboard in the log cabin in the garden. Nice south facing garden. It's a quiet location near to good transport links. It's about an 8 minute walk to Teddington British Rail station - 30 minutes to Waterloo. There are a couple of bus routes close by - No. 285 and X26 direct to Heathrow in about 35 mins or less. Hampton Court, Bushy Park & Richmond Park all nearby and River Thames only a short walk.
Smoking is allowed outside in the garden but not in the house. I have had many nice guests to stay and look forward to more in what I would call a very relaxed and friendly household. Pets are negotiable at a small extra charge.
Fridge, Freezer Space, Washing Machine (£1.00 nominal charge). Bathroom is shared if guests in both rooms. There is another bathroom downstairs if ever there is "bathroom congestion", but it has never happened to date. There is sometimes a parking space available on the drive and there is plenty of free parking in the road.
Parks and River Thames all nearby. Hampton Court is a 25 min walk. Good local shopping centres in Kingston and Richmond.
Transport services in the area are fantastic. 4 buses within 2 min walk operating a very frequent service. If you are arriving from Heathrow Terminal 3 then hop on the 285 at Heathorow Central and it will take about 35 minutes depending on time of day and get off at NPL/Gloucetser Road Bus Stop, or take the X26 (much quicker) but it only stops in Teddington High St and you will need to walk back (about 5 mins) or hop on a 281, 33, R68 or 285 back to me. If arriving at Terminal 4 or Terminal 5 then you can get free interconnecting buses to Terminal 3 or Hatton Cross where you can change buses.
Other Things to Note
If using the kitchen for cooking in the evening please leave it as you found it and wash up etc when you have finished. Thank you
Smoking allowed outside in garden. Pets are negotiable at a small extra charge.
There are not many rules as such in this friendly happy house, but it is nice if guests treat the house with respect and make themselves at home. If other guests are staying try not to bang doors and play loud music as they may be sleeping or resting. Please: No instrument playing after 10pm! Good communication, especially regarding eating arrangements, is nice too, as many guests eat with us providing we are eating that night (note: we do not always eat every night), and I charge a contribution of £3.00 per meal, of course guests can prepare their own meals if they so wish if they do not want to eat with us.
About the Host, Graham
I am a single man with a 4 bedroom house! My girlfriend Grace (a great cook) stays with me a lot as she works nearby. So I am letting out rooms on Airbnb. I enjoy all sports, especially snooker, squash, tennis and darts which I play regularly and I watch a lot of sport and films. I have my own full size snooker table which you are welcome to use. I am a graphic designer working mainly in broadcast. I have 2 grown up boys aged 33 and 25 who live nearby and visit regularly. I like quizzing and many guests come with me on a Wednesday Night to the Pub Quiz (Only a bit of fun and not taken too seriously). I have made many friends through AirBnB and still see many of them on a regular basis.
