The space

Situated in a quiet leafy neighbourhood opposite a 900 year old school, this place is very centrally located. It's a 5 min taxi ride from the railway station. The apartment is clean and spacious, and is well cared for.

Guest access

Guests have access to kitchen and common space.

Interaction with guests

Since guests would be sharing the space with myself, I would interact regularly with them - should they wish to!

The neighbourhood

The really old school (tenth oldest in England) in front of the house, and the tree lined roads.

Getting around

There is plenty of public transport (buses and taxis, takes 5-7min from the railway station) since the house is a stone's throw from the Royal Berkshire hospital.

Other things to note

I own an old projector and love watching movies on some evenings. Guests would be welcome to join me in movie screenings should they wish to!

House Rules

Guests are expected to leave the house clean.

Your Host



Reading, United Kingdom · Joined in April 2013

I am an academic at the University of Reading. I travel regularly to international conferences, and have been hosted by Airbnb hosts for a while; which leads me on to host my own apartment on this site.
When I am not travelling, I love playing music and watching movies on my old projector.
