About this listing
A room with double bed in a brand new stylish flat with excellent transport links – only 2 minutes walk to the train station and it's 18 minutes from there to central London.
Located close to a park, shops & places to eat.
We are pleased to offer our brand new stylish flat to our guests who can enjoy the benefits of a calm and quiet stay, feeling refreshed on the next day for a business meeting or your tourism plans. This is a 21st century home, quiet, warm and cosy.
We are a professional couple and you'll be sharing common areas with us for the duration of your stay. We are fairly relaxed and respectful and would like you to feel at home :)
Your private bedroom is comprised of: a double bed with a super comfy mattress for a good night sleep; full size wardrobe with hangers, shelves and drawers; and a large floor to ceiling window which lets a lot of sun in in the morning. We have now added a 32 inches high definition television with TV streaming and Netflix included. You can also connect your laptop to the TV if you need.
The open plan living room/kitchen is bright and welcoming, fully equipped with washing machine, oven, microwave, dish washer, toaster, hi-tech induction cooker, brand new cookware and a sofa.
The Bathroom has a heated towel hanger and steam control so you can get that long and deserved shower/bath without the fog.
Fast fibre internet available, so you can work and rest assured it works fast.
The Flat is provides amazing views over London, which you can enjoy from the balcony.
You will have exclusive access to your private double bedroom and shared access to the balcony, bathroom and living room/kitchen.
Natasha works from home most days (Monday – Friday) and may require sole use of the living room / kitchen during working hours (9.00 – 18.00) to take work calls. We ask you to be respectful and avoid using the living room / kitchen when the door is closed during these hours.
You're welcome to use the living room / kitchen outside of working hours or when the door is open.
Your room has a double bed which sleeps two people. There is also a large floor to ceiling wardrobe with sliding doors. It has lots of hanging space for dresses and suits, plus shelves and drawers for smaller items. There is plenty of organised storage so you can easily undo your luggage without feeling cluttered and be able to find everything easily. The mattress is a memory foam which is high quality and provides a great support and comfort to ensure you feel refreshed the next day.
If you have another guest with you and prefer to sleep alone, we have a sofa bed in the living room which expands to a full sized double bed, so the second person that comes with you can sleep there. Obviously this won't provide as much privacy, but it's an option if you need it. This will need to be arranged in advance.
The shower gets hot quickly has a excellent pressure – both temperature and pressure are easily adjustable via controls. If you fancy a soak, there is a fully functioning bathtub.
We provide fresh bedding, towels and shampoo.
The living room has 2 large floor to ceiling windows, which covers pretty much 2 of the walls so the room gets flooded with natural light.
Washer/dryer is available if needed with cloth dryer rack.
Interaction with guests
We are sociable and easy going. Both of us work full time and study part time, so we won't always be around, but can be reached on the phone easily if needed. We are happy to help you with anything needed and welcome you to our home to make you feel as it is also yours. We have Brazilian-Russian-German background, so we are also fluent in Russian and Portuguese.
Catford is a fairly quite neighbourhood and it's currently undergoing some redevelopment.
It has a few pubs, cafes and restaurants for a relaxed day / night out. It's close to central London if you want to explore London night live.
We also have a large park next door which is good for a stroll along the river or a jog.
The flat is located in a brand new block of apartments, all neighbours are small families or professional couples. Our location has 89 point on which means lots of facilities just at your doorstep.
