Light, airy, self-contained studio flat just 4mins walk from the heart of town; yet only 10mins walk from country walks around Bath.
***PLEASE READ MY LISTING CAREFULLY AS THIS LISTING WON'T SUIT EVERYONE THO***
It's on a hill so BEAUTIFUL views & great light.
BUT it is a Basic & simple flat.
As self-contained flats in Bath are usually over £100 per night, this flat is an opportunity but do not expect luxury for your money. It's my home so while you stay here - I go AirBnB-ing myself for a bit.
***PLEASE READ MY LISTING CAREFULLY AS THIS LISTING WON'T SUIT EVERYONE***
It is in a group of blocks of flats in Bath so it won't suit everyone - 4th floor; lift; stairs; the neighbourhood is 'lively' compared to the rest of Bath so not for a sensitive, artistic type perhaps?
I LOVE it here - but not everyone will. But that is why it is less than HALF-PRICE of usual self-contained flats in Bath. The neighbourhood is not luxurious or posh, but it's super-convenient, self-contained and has beautiful views/light. And less than 30 seconds away are some of the poshest neighbourhoods. It is 2 minutes from the Royal Crescent; Royal Victoria Park; The Circus; and The Assembly Rooms. And also 1 minute or less from the beautiful Camden Crescent and Lansdown Crescent. (All times are for WALKING) You won't need a car - town is a moments walk down the hill.
Brand new tiled Bathroom with deep bath and electric shower and all new fittings. Broadband. WiFi. Subwoofer sound system which you can plug your iPhone into. Large sofa for a +1 if you like. Nice double bed with a drape so separate it (a bit) from the Living space. Separate (basic) Kitchen and (new) Bathroom. Very easy and quick to heat. Lots of hot water! Windows will open wide, and the flat is dual aspect so a breeze, on warm balmy English summer evening, will brush across you.

•microwave 800W class E.
•Fridge with freezer compartment

• 2 fresh towels;
• Bedding and an extra change of bedding too (sheets and duvet cover)
•Shampoo; liquid soaps; WU liquid; household cleaning sprays etc; bleach; Toilet Roll; shoe polish; candles....
DO NOT EXPECT LUXURY! Functional - yes; simple, basic and comfy - yes! Luxurious - NO!
Convenient; cheap; contained; close to centre; cheerful; clean. But not luxurious.
(e.g. The carpet is 12 years old. And I've spilled wine on it. It's clean but it's not pristine)
It is a communal entrance, which can be a bit littered or 'lived-in', but freshly painted and safe. The lift is a shared lift. From the bottom entrance it is 4th floor in the lift; but from the hill entrance it is Ground floor (Bath is hilly). Communal entrance door and lobby leading to outdoor corridors and then the front door which is like any apartment block. Then the space is your own, self-contained, light, airy and wonderful. The front door is double-locked and very secure. The views from the bed are across the city!
Interaction with guests
I can be available from time to time but my hope is to meet you on arrival to give you keys, and then use your stay to have a trip away myself! While you are in my home - I'll be taking a break elsewhere, hence my strict cancellation policy. When you book here - I'll book somewhere exciting for myself....
Other things to note
It's a simple neighbourhood located in the middle of the posh bits of Bath. More functional than fancy ;) Just NOT a 5* hotel, or a usual Bath neighbourhood. I've lived here 12 years and I love it - but the lift may have rubbish in it; and the neighbours like to chat sometimes. But it's real and fun. And it's not a worry.
I live simply and not materially, so little things like:
• On the oven - only two of the four rings work.
• it is not 'freshly decorated' like most in Bath; or 'all mod cons'. In fact, it has no mod cons that I know of ;)
•kettle, cutlery, sharp-knives etc - but only 3 wine glasses and 3 plates
-I live simply!
This is my home! So, I'll leave it ready for your stay, but please care for it. It is simple, but it is where I live and I love it.
I host a lot with Couchsurfing - so I know how well my place is received, but this listing is on AirBnB is so I can go away from time-to-time somewhere nice while you stay at mine!
Please don't play loud music late at night with all the windows open (like I sometimes do - oops! ;) ).
Please don't smoke inside or anywhere in the building tbh. (It is a neighbourhood rule)
I'll leave plenty enough Electric and Heating on the meters - but "fair use policy" please: it costs me less than £5 per week to heat and bathe etc.
Wash and tidy up a bit before you go. I have to live here when you leave ;)
