A big room, spacious, with a king size bed, 2 armchairs, a table and a tv with freeview. There are other rooms which may be available if you are a larger party or family group.
It's a large room, suitable for 1 or 2 people. The house was built in 1905 and this room has a high, decorated ceiling and a large bay window.
Great for transport links, we are very close to the University Metro station, which takes you straight to Newcastle and Newcastle airport. Sunderland Station is only 15 minute's walk away. Parking is never a problem on the street outside. Parking restrictions are now in force from 9am till 10am and 2pm till 3pm, Monday to Saturday, but we can provide parking permits for you free of charge.
There are 2 bathrooms that guests can use, the main bathroom, which has a large shower, toilet and hand basin and a small bathroom, with a toilet and hand basin.
In the kitchen, guests can use the kettle, toaster and microwave to make breakfast. We provide bread, eggs and cereal etc. Guests can make tea or coffee at any time and sit in the kitchen at any time. However, we do not allow use of the hob or oven for making meals.
Guests are welcome to use the living room at any time.
Interaction with guests
We are very friendly and love meeting all our guests, but will keep a low profile if the guest prefers privacy. I work from home usually, so I'm around most of the time to see to guests.
Other things to note
As a city break, Sunderland is a good option. We've got lovely beaches and plenty to see and do, including a 7th century church, ( St.Peter's), Penshaw Monument and the National Glass Centre. We are also very close to the Chester Road campus of Sunderland Uni and about 20 minute's walk from Saint Peter's Campus. It's actually very convenient for Newcastle Airport too. The 'University' Metro station is only 5 minutes walk away. Public transport is really good, so travel to Newcastle or Durham is easy. However, late at night there is only the option of taxis. A taxi from Newcastle would cost around £30.
Most people I meet through Airbnb have either a good sense of direction or maps on their phone! However, anyone unsure about directions, please just ask and I will meet you and help out in any way I can.
Also, I make sure that everything for guests is comfortable and clean. The beds all have memory foam. I aim for good standards and a homely feel.
It's a big house so it's easy to get privacy. There are 7 rooms, a large kitchen and 3 bathrooms in total and everything is kept really clean and nice.
Quiet after 11 pm.
Close windows when you go out.
Use the toaster and microwave to make breakfast. Sorry, we don't allow use of the hob and oven.
