About this listing
Please note that this is a quiet residential area and it's not suitable for parties.
I have a cosy beautiful apartment for rent in the Sherwood area of Nottingham. The flat has two bedrooms and a spacious living room with a separate kitchen and a bathroom with a walk-in shower. The flat is a good size and it has a separate entrance and secure parking.
There is a double bed in one of the two bedrooms and a single bed in the other, otherwise the are the same size. The flat is double glazed throughout and is really warm. The new boiler system allows you to program the times when you want the heating on and off and it's really efficient.
I stay in the flat myself from time to time so you will have all that you need at hand. While you are my guests you will have the apartment all to yourself.
Sherwood is really safe and quiet, its residents are primarily families who have lived there a while. The flat has two locks and a downstairs and upstairs entrance with private staircase and landing. It's 10min bus ride from Nottingham city centre and 5 min walk from local high street with shops, cafes, eateries and other usual high street amenities.
If you have any other questions please just ask.
Parking is available on the driveway on first come first served basis shared with one more neighbour. Alternative parking is available on the cul-de-saq next to the house and it's safe and free.
Interaction with Guests
I usually send my guests an email a day prior to their arival to let them know any specifics around key pick up etc. However, you are welcome to send me any questions whenever you want and I will do my best to answer them.
Other Things to Note
Please note that the gas oven in the flat has recently stopped working and I won't be able to replace it till the summer when I will be doing some renovations in the kitchen. The gas hobs are in good working order and still can be used for cooking, and there is a microwave oven available as well.
Strictly non-smoking policy.
Sorry, no pets allowed.
Please note, no late night parties!
Families with toddlers - there is a very sharp-edged glass dining table in the living room (see pictures) - staying here with little ones would have to be at your own risk but I would not recommend it leaving the child alone in the living room at all. Otherwise the apartment is child friendly and I welcome little ones. I have had loads of families with toddlers staying - they just reposition the table in the living room and make it more child friendly this way.
Important notes regarding pricing:
Please note that if you are a couple and a child under 14 there is no additional charge, but if you are 2+1, or 1+1 (two separate guests who require their own bedroom) you need to select the 3rd person option which increases the price for your booking.
The flat was very clean and comfortale, and we had a very good stay; every communication with Nadia went very smoothly.
However, the kitchen might be a little bit better equipped with cutlery/plates/glasses and the oven did not work - but this was not a big problem.
Communication with Nadia was good, even though we did not meet her, the instructions were clear. The flat was fine good location and quiet. Probably the only negative now is the photos shown don't quite show how the apartment is looking now. A few minor things that need to be fixed. Also is only a fridge no freezer.
Nadia made us feel welcome and contacted us with details of how to access the property. However the neighbourhood and the outside of the property is a little off putting, the bell didn't work and the security light didn't come on until we had nearly fallen down the step.
The actual flat was difficult to find at first as the streets surrounding are one way and the flat is tucked round the back off the street. When I found the flat though the keys were exactly where Nadia said they would be and the flat was amazing. I was there during a heatwave unfortunately so couldn't really get cool in the place as even with the window open it was boiling but that obviously isn't Nadia's fault. The flat was amazing, wifi worked perfectly and the shower was amazing. I didn't realise that I'd need to bring my own towels so I had to use one towel for four days so that was a negative but again couldn't be helped. I was working in the centre of town and got there in 1-15minutes in rush hour so it was perfect.
Nadia was really friendly and her flat was so nice to stay in. It is exactly as it is described in the listing. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in her flat and we definitely would stay here again in the future!
Provided all the information we needed, good location at a cheap price. Would recommend.
