About this listing

Guests like the built-in wardrobe with the three mirror doors, and the bathroom is opposite making it convenient to use. They also liked how quiet the room and the area is and with a desk and table lamp being under the window the ideal place for anyone wanting to study. There is plenty of storage space to store either in the wardrobe or under the bed. There is also a large set of drawers and a bookcase. The room is fully carpeted with a rug next to the bed and radiator under the window.

The space

The room is very quiet with a desk and table lamp situated next to the window, so giving guests maximum daylight, plus a tall set of drawers and bookcase for storing books etc. Guests like the room as it’s on the same floor as the bathroom which is the first floor. Guests can feel happy that they can lock this bedroom if they so wish with the key being in the lock. Bedclothes and towel are provided and extra blanket if needed.

Guest access

Kitchen with all its utensils, crockery etc, bathroom, living room, iron and ironing board and hair dryer

Interaction with guests

I like all my guests to feel like one of the family and be totally relaxed during their stay, as I know staying in a different country or location of the country can sometimes take time to adjust in a new area and people need time. I always take an interest in my guests to make sure they are comfortable in the room and if they need anything like an extra bed cover, and to advise them of the best method of transport to use, and where they can buy oyster cards and direct them to the best supermarkets at reasonable prices and walking distance. This is very important for guests to know where to buy basics. I always contact guests beforehand to find out the approximate time of their arrival and telephone number and which airport they will be arriving at, so I can direct them as accurately as possible to my house.

Other things to note

Its possible there may be another guest in the house on the first floor, so its nice to know when they may want to use the bathroom in the morning so I can liaise with the other guest

Shirley is an excellent landlady, very available to help me with the transportation in London. The house is lovely in a very quiet residential neighborhood, good to have a walk, nearby a lovely garden and near shops. The room is very confortable. Shirley's dog is fantastic, very friendly and relaxed. I hope to return soon.

Shirley has a lovely and confortable home and I spent two weeks with her very well. The single bedroom was quiet and perfect for my requirement. She is a very nice and helpful person, ready to advice the guess. She helped me to find the cheaper market to buy good and fresh food. She is a cozy person and I really enjoyed her company. I hope to meet her soon!

I pleased to leave my feedback here as I really had experienced nice moments with miss Shirley . She was very polite and respectful . She has learnt me a lot especially in my first days in London . The spacious room upstairs is clean,quiet and comfortable . By bus ,The house is few minutes away from Wood Green Station where all amenities ( including wood green shopping center ) around the station there . This station is located directly on picadilly line which direct you to central London . If the house hadn't was far from my campus , I wouldn't have left this lovely room and its host . Thank you very much Shirley . I hope visit you again .., ^_^ Mustafa .

I had a brilliant 6 week stay with Shirley! Shirley is a wonderful host, providing lots of useful information about the area and how to get to other parts of the UK. The room was very nice, with a comfortable bed and plenty of space to keep my things. Shirley keeps the place very clean, and washed my clothes each week which was a real bonus! The pets were also good fun! Thank you Shirley, if I'm ever back in the uk I'd love to stay with you again!

I am English and enjoy reading and printing and have travelled a lot, one of my favourite holidays was Crete and Israel. Egypt was very different and a good place for the sun. Its always a pleasure to meet new people from all over the world and how they live.
