The house is about 10 mins walking distance from Newbury Park tube station (Zone 4 on central line) and is connected to Central London. (abt 25 minutes, direct connection from east London where I live) I have wireless internet at my place and if you bring in your laptop etc,you can access Wifi without any additional cost. The living room(or call it a "private room") has leather sofa bed and is really comfortable (as stated by guests in their review) as It comes with full bedding !! I have private small garden too with patio and you can relax and sit outside (weather permitting)
What makes my place stand out from others is that I do not charge exorbitant prices you would end up when staying in Zone 1/2 and I am proud to offer exceptional value to guests staying with me even when 3 guests are staying.
One thing you need to take into consideration before booking my place is that if you are checking in on weekdays i.e Monday to Friday,you would have to come either between 8 to 9 am or after 6pm only as I do not hand over keys to neighbours etc. Also, if you are checking out on a weekday, you MUST check out by 9 am. Weekends is not much of an issue re timings as I am at home only :)
Carrying lots of luggage from tube station to my place can be a long haul and thus, Iam able to pick you up from the tube station by car and can drop you off on the day of departure, but this needs to be pre arranged with me. Alternatively, there is a direct bus from tube station too. (number (phone number hidden))
I have had many people contacting me with common questions so I decided to list out on here as answer:
Q Do you have telephone number/email address?
A: Yes I do have but you can only exchange after you have placed the booking. I will not give the details as it is against the policy.

A: Yes, upon request
Q: Is there a supermarket & restaurant near my place?
A: Yes, there is, but please note they are not 24 hrs opened
Q: Can you pick/drop at Airport?
A: Yes,at a reasonable cost, I can and the cost can be included in room rate under special offer if pre arranged and you can pay at the time of booking. (Taxi fares are mentioned at the bottom of the description)

A: Yes, with me & my wife - but it is clean and WILL be clean during your stay

Q: Can I use your kitchen?

I take real pride in how clean the flat is and will endeavour to make your stay enjoyable. I will be glad to give you tips, transportation advice, and varied sorts of answers you may need, for everything else we have internet to search the stuff, Restaurant recommendations, pub locations,etc.
Please be advised that I only have ONE sofa bed. So a third person would NOT get a bed but then surely, duvet etc is provided, I am able to make bed on the carpetted floor with leather sofa bed setties which come handy as mattress. To be honest, it is not bad at all and is comfortable but then it may not be everyone's cup of tea. The flat is fully carpetted except Kitchen and bathroom!
If you are looking to make a booking please could you share a few things about yourself. I like to get an impression of people before I accept bookings.

Die Unterbringnung war bodenständig und gut. In Zone 4 gelegen ist sie nicht besonders zentral doch die Verkehrsanbindung wird durch die nahegelegene Tube (central line) und verschiedene Busse gewährleistet. Die Nachbarschaft ist ruhig und beinhaltet einige kleine Läden und zwei Pubs, sowie verschiedene Restaurants.
