The space

This listing is for Room Three - the smallest of three rooms available in my home, which is just a 7 min stroll from Cliffs Pavilion & a 17 min walk from Palace Theatre.
The whole of the upper floor is for the sole use of guests, offering 2 large doubles & one small double, all with TV/DVD combi & tea/coffee facilities. There is a bathroom with bath & electric shower also on this floor, for sole use of guests.
You are welcome to use the dining room / den in the basement (residents only), which also houses an honesty bar, for those returning from the theatre, when you need to wind down & the off licences are closed.
Please note that breakfast can be provided, but at an additional cost.

Guest access

Guests have their own keys to come & go as they wish & have full access to the dining room/den, garden & kitchen, which houses all the mod cons & equipment you could need. Access to laundry equipment too (using your own powder/fab con).

Interaction with guests

My son & daughter in law are actors, so I know what theatre professionals want & more importantly, what you don't want, in your perfect theatre digs. I've my own suite on the ground floor, so it's just the kitchen, dining room/den & garden you'll be sharing.

The neighbourhood

The beautiful conservation area of Southend is a step back in time to the 1800's, consisting of wonderful old terraced townhouses, with ornate balconies & the original Dickens style street lamps .We're situated just a few hundred yards from the seafront.
Pretty Prittlewell Square, with its flowers & fountains, are a 30 second walk from the front door - perfect for a little quiet contemplation.
Plenty of great bars & restaurants (both cheap & cheerful or a little more special) are all within a short walk, as is the Royals Shopping Mall & the Victoria Centre, containing all the most popular high street shops. It's a 5 minute walk to Adventure Land and the pier, which is the world's longest - you can take the train either way if the one mile & a third is too much of a walk for you. Lovely Leigh-on-Sea, voted in 2016 as the happiest town in which to live, is just a 5 min drive, with it's beautiful Old Town where you find the cockle & oyster sheds & some wonderful old pubs in which to sit & watch the world go by.

Getting around

Railway stations Southend Central (5 min walk) & Southend Victoria (15 min walk) both have direct rail links to London Fenchurch Street & London Liverpool Street respectively.

Just had a wonderful stay with Ruth. As hosts they were extremely considerate. Their communication prior to put stay was excellent and was very tolerant even when we kept changing our guest list. They reserved a parking space for us and made us feel very welcome even when we turned up nearly an hour early. The accommodation was lovely and spacious and made us want to look at rightmove when we got home again. All in all a great experience for our first airbnb time.

What a wonderful place to stay, truly a home from home. Very warm, cosy and Ruth makes an extra special effort to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Beautiful location and accessibility to the town centre. All amenities as described and a rather splendid unexpected extra amenity which you'll find out if you book here! Highly recommended and most definitely would stay again.

Ruth User ProfileRuth is a superhost.

After 40 years working all hours & weekends, in advertising agencies in London, I've given it all up & bought a house by the seaside near my family,so that I can work from home & be a hands-on Nana to my granddaughter. Offering theatre digs partly enables me to do that. Being a Mother & Mother-in-law to touring actors, I know what you like & more importantly, what you don't like in your perfect theatre digs.
