Contact the live-in host for more detail
Well furnished, comfortable single room, with large wardrobe and writing desk. A private balcony door provides you with access onto your part of the balcony overlooking the river Thames and the grand building that is The Lensbury.
For those into reading, films, board games or music, there are lots of things available to you in the flat upon request... including for example, a wide selection of DVDs (across a host of genres and if not, there's always Netflix), a whole library of fiction and non fiction books and magazines, including Booker Prize winning literature, English classic novels, various philosophy and psychology textbooks, plus numerous poetry collections! I also offer a good bunch of boardgames for those rainy nights in, and perhaps most excitingly of all (for those of musical persuasion) - access to a fully functional upright piano! Or, if you'd rather pluck than plink, I have a balalaika, a guitar and a ukelele, also available upon request.
Communal shared areas include kitchen, bathroom, front balcony and large living room.
Free Wifi is available upon check in.
A laser colour printer is also available at 10p per page for black and white and 15p per page for colour.
A washing machine and drying rack is also available at £5 for a medium load of washing.
Full English Breakfast can be provided if arranged at least a day before check-in and if the host is available to cook it for you. The cost is £5.
Please let the host know if you have any special dietary requirements when booking should you require food and drink.
The property has an upright piano and guitar if you would like to borrow either you'd be welcome- please simply request from the host upon arrival.
I'll be on hand through the duration of your stay, welcoming you with cups of tea or coffee and if you wish, full english breakfast can be arranged too. Plus, I can show you many fabulous local hotspots for great food, free live music, amazing art, beautiful gardens, spectacular tourist sights, scenic walks, plus many many local places of historical and geographical interest.
As shown in the photos I do have a dog (miniature dachshund named Rufus), who lives in the living room but he is well behaved and completely friendly.
Free street parking is also available opposite the flat.
Guests are expected to tidy up after themselves whether cooking, bathing or otherwise.
Sadly no pets as the flat already has a dog.
No loud music after 10pm with respect to the neighbours please.
Smoking is allowed but on the balcony only.
My friends describe me as a bubbly, friendly, London professional who makes a great roast dinner and a mind-blowingly good full english breakfast!
An avid reader and traveller - the more adventurous the tale and the path, the better.
Last year I learned how to pilot hot air balloons in Mexico. This year I created a balcony garden, flew a fixed wing plane over a glacier in New Zealand, went on safari and swam with Great White Sharks in South Africa.
I love hosting and have made a great many friends from all over the globe over the past few years doing so.
Looking forward to meeting you!
