The Space

We live in a quiet neighbourhood in a conservation area with many local shops and amenities nearby and 3 minutes from the bus stop which takes 4 minutes to Turnpike Lane or Wood Green tube stations on the Piccadilly line. The journey to the centre of London would be about 20 minutes. The Piccadilly line is frequent and trains run about every 2/3 minutes. The 29 is a night bus running from Trafalgar Square to Wood Green every 8 minutes throughout the night. Wood Green Shopping City is a very popular area attracting people from far to shop. I live with my son who is 23 and we are often a host family to students from around the world. The single room available is bright and cosy with access to wireless internet , Kitchen Access, Central Heating, Hot Water, Parking, Washing Machine, Bedding. We also have a beautiful Japanese Akita dog who is only two years old and has a very friendly protective nature and loves the company of our guests and a cat outside.

  • I can only say the best about my stay in Shirley's room. The room itself is spacious and clean, the bed is very confortable and the room is just as shown in the pictures.
    Also the house is very clean and quiet, the neighborhood is really cute, there are a lot of parks and a lot of shops not too far away, you have to walk 2min to go to a grocery store and less than 5minutes for the Sainsbury or to go to the Bus Stop which takes you directly to Turnpike Lane or Woodgreen if you want to take the Piccadilly Lane (or you can walk 15min).
    Shirley is a very nice person that will help you if you need something !
    Aoh and the dog is absolutely looooovely :)

  • Very good staying experience with Shirley. Located in a quiet community, the room is bright and tidy. There are buses just 2min away that go to tube station, train station and shopping mall! Shirley is a very considerate and helpful host. She gave me many kind and useful advice during my stay. Staying in her house makes me feel very relaxed and comfortable. Highly recommended. Oh and the dog and cats are really cute ; )

  • The stay at home with Shirley has been wonderful. The house very clean and the room is as shown in the photos. Shirley helps you in everything you need, where to buy, transport in the area ....... There is a bus stop 2 min. that leads to the underground station where you can take the line that leaves you in the center of London. You have three bus lines for the night you left near the house. Stay highly recommended!

    Thanks for all Shirley

  • My stay in Shirley's house was very good, the first day I came I felt at home. Shirley is very kind, she told me a lot of advice about the life in London, I was looking for a job, and she helped me to write my cv and to print them. I stayed in this house for 1 month and it was very comfortable, I could talk about everything with Shirley and the house is near a mall and several shops which is usefull! Now, I'm going to change of house but I am a bit nostalgic.
    Oh and I forgot, she has several pets who are very adorable!
