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 four years old with a very friendly protective nature and loves the company of our guests and cat mainly outside.
I couldn't have stayed at a better place. Shirley is the sweetest, kindest, caring person and the best host ever. The room is spacious and clean, as well as the bathroom and the rest of the house. The bed is really comfortable and warm. The Wi-Fi is also really good and fast. There are bus stations 5 minutes away by foot that take you to the Tube, either Victoria line or Picadilly line (great for central London and Heathrow Airport). The dog, Fudge, is a big baby and the cutest thing. The cats are quiet and affectionate. Thank you for everything, Shirley. It was really nice staying at your house and talking to you.
Thank you for your kind review and wish you all the best for the future and hope you are able to study at Cambridge. As your review is in Chinese and not many people would be able to read it so I have had it translated using Google translate which reads as follows:
"This is a great place to stay! Convenient, quiet and beautiful. The most important is the landlord who is very good - I'm very cold, so Ms. Shirley provided me with another duvet to keep me warm. Facility houses within very easy to use. This is a super comfortable and beautiful room - you will definitely like it here. There is a large dog and two faithful cute little kitty. They will not bother you, on the contrary, if you like the same thing I like pets, will feel and they play a very pleasant thing ~ All in all, this is a great place to stay and recommend it to everyone!" - Jiacheng
I really enjoyed my stay at Shirley's place. She is a lovely person and will help you with any problems. I can't imagine a better place to stay for my first two weeks in London. I highly recommend this place. Thank you Shirley.
I stayed one week at Shirley's place and I really enjoyed it. The room is really comfortable; I could study for hours and had good sleep. The bathroom is in good shape and I could use the kitchen too. Shirley is a really nice and kind person, and a great host! She provided everything I needed.
The house is just a few minutes away from the bus station with good connections to the Turnpike Lane Station and Wood Green. I did not have any difficulties in commuting.
Shirley is a considerate host, was helpful during my stay. Two cats are quiet, not disturbing, the dog was not around that time though. I was able to use kitchen to cook and Shirley washed my clothes. The room has everything and looks fine. We had some conversations with Shirley that I enjoyed.
It was a wonderful stay in Shirley’s house. The room was clean and cosy as shown at the pics. I loved the Kitchen, it’s very convenience for staying more than a week. The neighbourhood was perfect, I went for walk almost every day and enjoy very much the big park which near by. Shirley was very friendly and warmth, gave a lots proper advice about how to live in London in a short term. She is very easy to communicate, a most kind English lady I’ve ever met. Thank you so much Shirley, it was a pleasure!
The host, the room and the house are ok if you do not have problems with cats or dogs. The area is quiet and the journey to the centre is not very short.
