We call it the green room because the walls are green and it looks onto the back garden, so the whole feel of the place is peaceful. The room has a desk a wardrobe and a couple of small chests + there is plenty of room for personal items like suitcases etc.

We're both linked to the university: my husband is now retired but I still work there. We're renting out our 2 grown-up children's rooms. This is a family home with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 studies, a large dining area and living room.

This little Gem of a place has truly perfected the 'Art of Living', reflecting the warmth and comfort that Every AirBNB should set as a Standard; Everything is comfortable, easy on the eye and easy to utilize. Your Hosts are very highly intelligent , kind & cultured people, and Paola is a beautiful and wise woman. While Paola and David are obviously reflective professional people, I can see a deft and tasteful hand in every area of their very busy lives; their Home has a mature, comfortable and pleasant aura about; Well worth the Stay in every way; every amenity was a kind pleasure! The only peculiarity of my stay there was that I found the bed a little difficult to sleep in; hard to put my finger on the exact reason , as it is immaculately clean & generously feather-pillowed; perhaps the small amount of Flannel in The Duvet-cover. Otherwise, a faultless Stay.

Best place to stay. In summer, going to University of Southampton: Avenue and Hartley is a very niece walk. It takes about 40 mins.

Paola's house is well situated for access to Southampton University, by bicycle or by foot, there is also a bus stop close by with buses which will take you most places you want to go in Southampton as well as connecting with the train station for journeys further afield. It is also close to Southampton Airport. The house has a lovely kitchen which has all appliances etc you could want, plus a few more. There is also a washing machine and drier for taking care of your laundry. The room itself is large, light and airy, and includes desk space and wifi for all computing needs. The bed is warm and comfortable. Paola and David are wonderful hosts, they are gracious, generous, and easy to get along with. They are vibrantly interesting people who make it easy to live in their house and feel you are at home. Couldn't recommend this place enough!

Paola is absolutely a wonderful host, as she is very welcoming and talkative. I love the decorations in her house and the garden is very cute. I will highly recommend young people to stay at her place when they visit Southampton.

I had a wonderful stay at Paola and David's place. I didn't stay at the room that was shown in the pictures, but it was an even nicer room (with a really comfortable double bed :)) and Paola messaged me before my arrival to make sure that I'm okay with it. She also gave me details about how to arrive at the house, which is really helpful. I was mostly out of the house, but I really enjoyed the few conversations I had with Paola and David. They are every hospitable and nice. Would definitely recommend it!

What a genuine couple Dave & Paola are!! I stayed with them in Southampton and it has been an absolute pleasure. I really enjoyed both of them. You feel free with them but at home at the same time. House is brilliant; clean, spacious and very close to everything. There are supermarkets and shops at walking distance within the area. You can take a bus from there which leaves you in the city center in no more than 15 minutes. To sum up; 10 out of 10. Thoroughly recommended hosts! I would stay there again definetely.

I was very delight to stay the beautiful green room this time. Both Paola and her husband were really very kind hosts. They were so welcome to me and everything in the house was prepared to use. In addition, the house and the room were really so beautiful, comfortable, and also convenient to go shopping. I also enjoyed the natural green view from the window. This stay left me an amazing and memorable experience. Perfect Hosts. Thank you so much.
