The Space

Bright double room in beautifully renovated house fronting large 7ha park.
Very convenient for transport to key locations including West End, City, Canary Wharf, Greenwich and East London.

Luxury, renovated house, facing big beautiful park. Very near city centre. Modern kitchen & bathroom (heated floor, central heating, huge shower, separate bath). Faces beautiful Deptford Park. Linen & towels etc. included.

Great Transport links from Canada Water (Jubilee / grey line) or Surrey Quays (Overground) stations:
- London Bridge (2 stops / walking distance) & Bank (3 stops)
- West End / Soho (~20 mins, 6 stops direct)
- Canary Wharf (1 stop)
Also several bus routes (inc night) and easy airport connections.

Area is very central, but relaxed due to facing Deptford Park across a very quiet street and in a lovely Victorian pocket. Located walking distance to two of London's UNESCO world heritage listed sites: beautiful Maritime Greenwich (20 mins walk / 5 min bus) and Tower of London (~35 mins by foot / 20 min bus)

Deptford itself is very historic with Tudor era Royal Docks & diarists John Evelyn and Samuel Pepys, ancient churches & Watling Street. Deptford High Street has galleries, the great Deptford Project Cafe and vibrant market.

The room is bright & faces west capturing the afternoon sun and overlooking the rear garden. (nb. the room is the 'Main Guest Room' shown in the photos. Sometimes we may offer other rooms, in which case they will be larger and may face the park).

We look forward to having you to stay.

  • This is an exceptional host and flat with which you can enjoy your trip to London. Roland couldn't be more accommodating and helpful, from offering precise details on the most economical ways to travel to and from airports and into central London, to personally walking us through the neighbourhood in search of the very best places to drink coffee! Moreover, Roland is extremely educated on the history of various parts of London, and we learned so much from him! The flat itself is immaculate and absolutely lovely. It's aesthetically pleasing, and I'm only sorry we weren't able to stay longer. It has a remarkable kitchen, and the rooms and bathroom are fabulous. The neighbourhood is really interesting and helpfully located near major underground and bus routes. An easy walk over to Grenwich, and you can catch the ferry to Embankment and enjoy all of London's major tourist. sites. We so enjoyed ourselves with Roland, and his partner David, and you will too! I'm so glad that Roland was our first AirBnB host, as it's definitely left us with an exceptional impression of using this accommodation service. Truly, it couldn't have been better. Thank you for the wonderful visits and conversations, Roland, and for sharing so much of your city with us. We couldn't have asked for better. Let's keep in touch, please!

  • Roland and Dave were social, helpful and gracious hosts. We felt at home and were given good recommendations on local places to eat / run and helpful advice on getting into the City. The house is great for a short stay, with a nice room overlooking the park - incredibly comfortable pillows. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom is huge with a good shower. We didn't spend much time at the house, but the lounge looked great for relaxing. It's a 20/30 min tube ride into central london, so you need to plan for the day, but it's in a lovely position next to a small park. For a couple for a long weekend it's highly recommended, but for 2 people on a longer term stay, you might need more space.

  • Lovely house with wee garden out the back (I was lucky and had some amazing sunny weather!). Nice housemates, comfy bed, big hot shower, and good area for transport and shops etc. My only reason for not giving 5 stars is that the bedroom is a little small, and with a bigger suitcase or a travelling companion, it would be a squash. Roland is super-helpful, and makes an amazing coffee!

  • The bedroom was comfortable and nice,
    however we could hear the neighbor's party music for 2 nights that we stayed there.

    Wifi was very weak in the bedroom, especially if you're using an iphone.

    The apt is a good 15 mins walk from the overground station,
    takes about 45 mins from St. Pancras/King's Cross Station if you're arriving by train.

  • Rolland et David sont des personnes trés chaleureuses et acceuillantes et vraiment serviables. J'adorais quand ils parlaient français. Beaucoup de rires avec eux! Rolland était toujours là à nous aider, à nous conseiller de bons endroits à Londres, à nous demander si nous avions passé une bonne journée (pareil pour David). Ils se sont même lever à 5 heure du matin, pour nous dire au revoir et voir si le taxi était bien arrivé pour nous amener à l'aéroport. La maison était trés belle, propre, la chambre aussi, surtout les oreillers, on s'en souviendra tellement ils étaient confortables! La salle de bain était super agréable! Niveau bruit, tout était calme, c'était vraiment reposant. Côté transport, le bus est au bout de la rue et amène vraiment dans le centre de Londres. Le quartier est génial et les gens étaient cool. J'aurais aimé rester encore plus longtemps chez eux, je m'y sentais vraiment bien avec mon petit ami. Je voulais dire aussi, que c'était ma première expérience Airbnb, j'avais peur que cela se passe mal mais tout était génial, TOUT. Je vous remercie beaucoup! Jamais j'oublierai ce voyage! Nolwenn.

  • My boyfriend and I stayed at Roland and Dave's place for a week in May and we had a wonderful time! Even though we arrived very late at night, we were greeted warmly and showed around the place. They are located very close to a tube station and buses run regularly past the main road near their place. The house is immaculate, spacious and very modern. Roland definitely has put a lot of effort into making his guests feel welcome. He gave us great recommendations on things to do and places to visit. Our room was perfect and the bed was very comfortable. Overall, we had a great experience staying in London thanks to Roland, Dave and Martin. We would definitely recommend to everyone!

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Roland. The house is nice and clean: a little, nice bedroom; a big bathroom with all the comforts needed (a lot of towels for everyone!); a big kitchen at disposal with all what you need to prepare your breakfast.
    The area was quiet, liveable but also well-served: 24 hour supermarket at 10 minutes by foot, bus stop at 1 minute and tube stop at 10 minute: from here you can go everywhere, as we have easily done!
    Unfortunately we haven't spent a lot of time with Roland as we have visit London every singular minute of our journey, but he was in every time really kind and friendly with us and we have felt immediately at home!
    We sure recommend to stay to Roland, because all are OK and you can't ask more!
    Cheers guys!

  • I stayed with Roland & Dave in London for around 5 weeks. This was my first Air BnB experience and it could not have been more perfect. Roland (and the other house mates) are extremely welcoming and friendly and I was made to feel very at home.

    Before I arrived, Roland was always available to answer any questions and was very helpful sending me information on how to get to his place from the airport. Throughout my stay Roland was always helping me out with suggestions of things to do and see in London and how to get there. He provides very detailed welcome notes that give a comprehensive overview of the house and local area (such as places to eat and how to use local transport etc etc).

    The house itself is lovely. Recently renovated and very homely and clean. You have access to the large kitchen, fridge space, washing machine and lounge room which has cable TV. The bathroom is huge and super modern and clean which I particularly appreciated. The bedroom I stayed in is cosy but has everything you need. Wardrobe space, heating, draws and a super, super comfortable bed! Another benefit was the room was very quiet. I was never woken by any of the other house mates at any point during my stay.

    The location is good... very easy to get to the city by train or bus. There is a large Tesco's down the road and I often found myself cooking dinner and having great chats with Roland and the other house mates in the kitchen in the evenings.

    I would 100% recommend staying with Roland and Dave. They are incredibly friendly and welcoming people who really go out of their way to help and ensure you have a great stay in London. If you book with them you will not be disappointed.

Australian guy living with partner. I have been in London 5 years and know the city very well. Very happy to introduce you to it. I love the house and the area. We're really close to everything but very peaceful and green facing the park. I am a management consultant and professional investor. I did consulting for the oil industry for 3 years (including working in groovy places like Angola & Kuwait). I'm also an ex-lawyer and Science major. I love travel (40+ countries in the last 5 years) and meeting people. Really into snowboarding. Also economics and 20th Century History. We have a flatmate, who's great. Looking forward to meeting you and having you to stay!"
