CHARMING VICTORIAN HOUSE IN ROYAL GREENWICH WITH GARDEN, FREE PARKING & WIFI

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Greenwich - Explorers' Rest

2-bed House on a Quiet Street with Parks and Easy Access to Public Transport

Live like a true Greenwich Londoner and enjoy living the village life in the big city.

Built circa 1890, Explorers' Rest is a much-loved and charming two-bed Victorian house that sleeps four in two comfy double beds. An additional mattress is provided for a fifth guest. A baby's cot is also supplied, along with a high chair and security gate for the stairs. Well-behaved pets are warmly welcome.

Explorers' Rest has been loving prepared to help you relax and unwind after your long days exploring the city. Equipped as a full family home, Explorers' Rest should have everything you need to be as comfortable in London as you would be at home.

Located in London's leafy borough of Royal Greenwich, both central London and the countryside are within easy reach by car or public transport.

After a fun day of exploring, come home to a quiet Victorian neighbourhood and close the door on London's hustle and bustle. It's time to relax! Enjoy a BBQ picnic in your own private garden, unwind with a candlelit soak in the tub, stroll through the many parks in all directions, cozy up by the working fireplaces, enjoy a book from one of the bookshelves, or enjoy a film from the extensive DVD collection.

Our neighbours are quiet and friendly. Shops are conveniently just around the corner. The play area at the end of the street is a favorite with children. Parks stretch for miles in all directions. But best of all, public transport to all of London's tourist spots is right on your doorstep, literally a 30 second walk from the front door.

You do not need a car if you stay here. There is a bus stop around the corner and we are just 10 minutes by bus from a major transport hub that will take you quickly in all directions using either the train, bus, boat or DLR (tube that runs above ground).

However, if you do have a car, you'll enjoy FREE PARKING just outside the front door, which is quite difficult to find in London.

GETTING TO LONDON'S TOURIST ATTRACTIONS:

We're in zone 4 of London's 6 transport zones on the bus/tube/train/boat lines into the heart of the tourist areas so getting around is very easy. Three buses just around the corner from the house go 1.5 miles to the transport hub of Woolwich Arsenal in about 10 minutes. From here travel times are roughly:

- 4 mins (City Airport)

- 6 mins (Charlton Football Stadium)

- 10 mins (Greenwich Park/Uni/Museums/Observatory, Blackheath)

- 15 mins (o2 Arena, Canary Wharf, Docklands Museum)

- 20 mins (Olympic Village, London Bridge, Tower Bridge, Westfield shopping centre)

- 25 mins (Waterloo, London Eye, Westminster, Tower of London)

- 30 mins (Charing Cross for Oxford Street, Soho, Leicester Square, Picadilly Circus, Covent Garden)

Alternatively, bus 53 goes from the house all the way to the London Eye/Westminster in about 40 minutes - and runs all night. There is an endless list of happenings in London so I'll give you a handy welcome pack and lots of tourist info to help make sense of it all.

-

GETTING HERE FROM THE AIRPORTS:

FROM CITY AIRPORT: Just hop on the DLR (overland tube) and it's 4 minutes to Woolwich Arsenal station.

FROM HEATHROW, STANSTEAD OR GATWICK: I recommend getting a driver if you want the most stress-free start to your holiday - costs approximately £60 - which I can organise for you. However, if you want to use public transport, it's very easy to get to and from all of the airports.

FROM HEATHROW: Takes about 1hr 40mins on public transport. Get the Picadilly Line to Green Park and change to the Jubilee line to North Greenwich. From there you can get a bus.

FROM STANSTEAD: Takes about 1hr 15mins on public transport. Get the Standstead Express into Liverpool Street. Get the Central line (tube) one stop to Bank and get the DLR 25 minutes to Woolwich Arsenal station.

FROM GATWICK: Takes about 1 hr 15mins on public transport. Simply get the Gatwick Express to London Bridge station. Get the train to Woolwich Arsenal station.

-

VISITING THE COUNTRYSIDE / COAST / FRANCE:

There are some brilliant coastal areas to check out - all within 60-90 min: Southend-on-sea, Margate, Herne Bay, Ramsgate, Broadstairs (home of Charles Dickens) and Brighton. You can do a day trip and cover most of these in one (very full) day - or relax in just one if you're looking to unwind.

The Kent countryside (and beyond) is also full of fun places to explore and slightly closer than the coast at 20-90 min away. My recommendations are: Cambridge, Rochester, Canterbury, Rye, Sandwich (perfectly forgotten in time), Royal Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks and Chilham (absolutely adorable and tiny).

Windsor, Winchester and Oxford are a bit further away (about two hours), but doable and worth it if you're keen on any of them.

France is also very easy to access from here for a day or weekend trip via the Eurostar train, the ferry or the Eurotunnel (crossings are a little over an hour from the Explorers' Rest). Full details will be in your welcome package.

Dear Krista,

Thank you for the use of your wonderful home, it is so well equiped and full of home comforts, you really have thought of everything. We had a very special week here as we met and spent time getting to know our new adopted children, we will remember it fondly for the memories it has helped us create with our new family.

My name is Krista and I'm in my mid-thirties. I am Canadian but have been living in the UK since September 2002. In August 2005 I put an offer in on my house, Explorers' Rest, and received the keys in January 2006.

I walked into my new home, sat down and cried. At the age of 27 and on a young teacher's salary, the only house I could afford in the area I wanted to live was one that needed a lot of work to bring it back to life. And I had no idea how to use a drill, a hammer, or even plaster a hole in a wall!

I spent the next five years fixing up my home to the cute, cozy little city haven that it is now. I got help from friends and paid for the services of experts to do the technical work. My blood, sweat and tears have brought this beautiful old home back to life and I have loved every minute of my time here!

When you arrive at my house, I hope you'll immediately feel the love I pour into it, and I hope you'll be as happy here as I am. You'll be able to enjoy the photo album I've left to show you the before, during, and after photos of the renovations.

A few years ago I moved in with husband. His name is Erik and he is a South African IT Specialist, also living in the UK for over ten years. When I moved into his flat, I wasn't sure what to do with my beloved house. Because we love traveling and renting other people's homes, I decided to try renting mine in the same way. Within days of listing my home, I was inundated with bookings and I've been loving it ever since!

If you'd like to know more about me, you can check out a site about pursuing your dreams that I'm very proud to say is mine and in its early stages of life: wodara.org

Krista Beauvais purchased this house in 2006

Greenwich is a very special part of the city. We have easy access to London's chaotic hustle and bustle, but we don't have to live in it.

After a full day, we get to come home to parks and foxes and birds, quiet gardens, 300 miles of walking and biking trails through the parks that fill this special part of London, and quaint Victorian houses in small, friendly neighbourhoods.

I supply a lot of information at the house to be sure that you're aware of all Greenwich has to offer. There is enough just here that you could easily fill a week without ever going into the downtown tourist centre of London.

I love London's touristic centre, but there is always a sense of relief that washes over me at the end of the day when I get to retreat to my quiet little Greenwich haven.

I keep my prices as low as I can afford and still pay my bills and I truly hope you'll feel that you're getting a lot for what you're paying.

My home is my hobby and I love shopping for little decorations and items that will make your stay more comfortable. I love leaving little items for you when you arrive. And I love chatting back and forth with you to help you make your holiday special.

Because my house is not right in the middle of the tourist centre, there are no planes flying overhead and so it's easy to sleep well here because it's so quiet. My garden is private and very quiet. In the spring and summer, it's lovely for relaxing and having a private picnic on the grass.

There is also free parking outside my front door, shops less than a minute's walk away, parks in all directions, and a bus stop just around the corner so it's incredibly easy to get around without a car.

Also, the bathtub and the fireplaces in my home are special and essential for relaxing on a holiday!

London can be rainy and there will be the odd day that you don't want to go anywhere! For this reason, I've stocked my house with books,CDs and DVDs and you should therefore always have some entertainment so the rainy days don't seem so rainy.

Finally, I think that each room in my house has a feel-good energy that will truly help you to rest after your days of exciting exploration.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 out of 5
If you are like me and deciding between a couple of properties with a family, go no further and choose this apartment! We are a family of 5 (with 3 teens) and we had our own room and the kids had their room with a double bed to share and the eldest had a mattress.
The instructions Krista gave were so great when arriving into a city you don't know, we followed them very closely. It took us 1.5 hours to get here in rush hour traffic from Heathrow on the tubes and then a 10 minute bus to the place in Greenwich. Entry was seamless with a key code given to us via email.
This apartment was like a home away from home, there was everything you needed, washing machine, dryer, hair dryer, full kitchen with a lovely selection of teas and coffee, some lovely soap and body sprays etc.

It is on a quiet street and only 3 minutes walk to a shop that sells milk and other essentials. There is a larger shopping centre 2 bus stops away (about 5 min by bus).
The Woolwich Arsenal train station has connections to the DLR and underground and is a 10 minute bus ride away. I also noted there was free parking for a car out on the street if you needed it.

The house was also decorated for Christmas which the kids loved, its all these little touches that make this a home away from home.

THE PERFECT WAY TO SPEND A LONDON HOLIDAY!

  • 5 out of 5
If you’re looking for a welcoming home to stay at during your London Holiday, look no further. As travelers who prefer to immerse ourselves in the culture we visit, Explorer’s Rest was the perfect place to stay during our travels in London. This lovely home—situated in a charming neighborhood in Greenwich—provides travelers with the care and comfort of a relaxing and beautiful Victorian flat.

Explorer’s Rest itself is lovely and enchanting. Throughout the picturesque home, we found helpful books, notebooks, and pamphlets on how to travel around London, as well as information on where to eat, shop, and explore the city. Additionally, small labels are located around the flat, which permitted us to navigate throughout the house easily. Books, DVD’s, and televisions filled the home, which enabled us to relax and enjoy our surroundings—especially after a busy day in London!

Staying at Explorer’s Rest allowed us to spend quality time together. As we reflected on our adventures in the city, we enjoyed a nice meal, and a relaxing cup of tea around the kitchen table. Furthermore, Krista’s kindness and wealth of knowledge is what truly made our journey to London special.

One could not ask for a better place.

A HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 4 out of 5
Explorer's rest proved to be a great base for our London holiday, it felt like staying in a real home with all the comforts and atmosphere of being at home. Krista made us feel extremely welcome with everything from a welcome basket of goodies to a detailed manual outlining everything we could possibly need to know about the house and our stay in London.
The house has been wonderfully renovated making great use of available space which in Victorian terrace houses is an impressive feat. While being away from the centre of London, the area is well serviced by public transport with ready access to buses going into London and a very short trip to the DLR. Because we were staying for a month and planning a lot of exploring we bought a monthly transport card but Krista has provided oyster cards for guests to use, you just have to top up the cards. There is a handy local shop for essentials and it is only a short trip to Woolwich for the market or a Tescos that has everything you could possibly need. The common is just around the corner and my daughter and her friend particularly enjoyed seeing foxes on the common and in the neighbourhood. If we were visiting in warmer weather I am sure we would have made use of the lovely little back garden at Explorer’s rest, which is an added bonus.
We stayed in December, so a particularly cold time of year but Explorer’s rest was such a cosy place to return home to each night. The fireplaces were an extra bonus but not necessary for heating just nice for the extra atmosphere. Krista even provided Christmas decorations for our Christmas stay. Joanna who came and cleaned once a week during our stay did an amazing job, making the house always feel cosy, comfortable and welcoming. All in all Explorer’s Rest proved a great base for an extended London visit, with all the comforts of a home away from home and Krista made us feel incredibly welcome and provided us with all the information and tools for a great London visit. The only downside is that is possibly not the right place to stay if you want really quick access to all the central attractions but if you don't mind using the public transport it can make for a relaxing visit. Trips into horse guards on the 53 bus provided a relaxing trip into the city and the bus also stops right in front of the imperial war museum. The DLR and the tube were great for quicker trips. With the DLR being overground it also provided another way of just seeing more of London.

AMAZING STAY IN LONDON AREA!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed in this wonderful home for a week. Every detail was just like in the pictures- from the lovely garden to the space saving kitchen to the artfully finished bedrooms. What the pictures cannot tell you is that Krista is a fantastic host! She has everything in her home labelled for ease of use; binders of maps and information; movies to watch and cd's to listen to- and Oyster cards to help us get on the train and tube! No hotel would ever do so much. The area around this home is convenient and the people are friendly. Greenwich itself was beautiful to explore and London was about a 20-30 minute transit trip away. This is the 4th time we have booked a "home away" spot- they were all great but Krista's attention to comfort, care and convenience makes this our #1 choice! Bravo- and can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: Darlene,

Thank you ever so much for your kind words! I guess you must now be home from your cruise? I hope that was amazing!

I've literally JUST finished the book you gave me by the Swedish author...about 10 minutes ago. :-) The other one looks like just my sort as well...I'll be starting that next week. It was lovely to meet you!

Enjoy the rest of your summer holidays...

All the best,
Krista

TRULY AMAZING HOLIDAY RENTAL

  • 5 out of 5
I travelled here on my first international trip and am truly delighted that we chose this location. Krista is more than acommodating, the house is exquisite, and the location is fantastic. From the first email she helped my friend and I with the trip and was extremely prompt in her replies. The house has all the ammenities that you need when renting a home. I was able to cook full meals here in comfort and felt like it was home when staying here. The beds are comfortable and the house is wonderfully decorated. The location is safe and near public transportation making it very easy to navigate to London's city centre. There is a quaint pub and a local market around the corner as well. This house and Krista are truly a delight, and I look forward to staying here again upon another trip to London!

PERFECT SPOT TO EXPLORE LONDON

  • 5 out of 5
Explorer's rest is the perfect spot to explore London and the Greater London Area. Situated in a quiet Victorian neighbourhood in Greenwich, it might seem a bit far from London's tourist attractions at first. But apart from the fact that Explorer's rest has a lot to offer in itself, it isn't actually that far from the city centre. Only a 2 min. walk to a bus-stop, then a 10 min. busride gets you to Woolwhich Arsenal, a transport hub from where you can take a train or the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) into London. And that is only a 20 min. ride, with lots to be seen along the way. The house itself isn't vey large but it's perfectly charming and extremely well kept. It sleeps 4 persons very comfortable (we were with 4: two adults and 2 15-year olds). Krita Vesey is a generous host. Lots of things are provided: books and dvd's (there are 2 televion sets with dvd-players), cd's, and there is a more than generously equipped kitchen. And another very large plus: we found it very interesting indeed to live for a week among average Londoners, in stead of just mingling with the tourist-folk. Near to the house are some convenient shops like a bakery and a grocery. A well-stocked supermarket is only a 5 min. walk away. The is also a pub closeby, as well as a nice park. Imagine travelling into London, seeing all the sights and doing everything else Londonish and after that just go home and make yourself a quiet dinner in stead of having to hunt half the evening for a decent restaurant! We will certainly return, and recommend Traveler's Rest to all that are looking for an unusual way to explore London.

RARE LONDON LUXURY: FREE PARKING!

There is free parking just outside my front door, on a quiet residential street with no through-traffic. Even if you arrive with a car, I highly advise that you use public transport if you're going any closer to the centre of the city than Blackheath Village or Downtown Greenwich.

LOCATION

Explorers' Rest is situated in the quiet, leafy, Victorian residential area of Plumstead Common inside the borough of Royal Greenwich. Most houses in the area are similar in age to mine, about 100-120 years old. They are also terraced in style, meaning they are in a long line, all side by side, with bay windows and chimney pots on the top.

The locals are a mix of working class (blue collar) and middle class (white collar) so you'll have lawyers, police officers, teachers, nurses, and builders all living side by side. It's a predominantly white British neighbourhood, whereas Plumstead down the hill is predominantly Indian and Woolwich Arsenal, also down the hill, is predominantly African.

TRANSPORTATION

Three bus routes pass my house (291,51,53) and they all take you into Woolwich Arsenal, the major transport hub for Southeast London, in 7-10 minutes.

One bus that passes my house (53) takes you all the way to Westminster / Big Ben / London Eye / Buckingham Palace.

From Woolwich Arsenal, you can get the train, DLR (overground tube), or boat to any London attraction you could possibly want to enjoy in 20-30 minutes, depending on which area you're going to. During Monday to Friday, there are free newspapers available on the trains that you can enjoy on the journey.

AROUND MY HOUSE

My house is ideally situated for people who want to easily access the tourist attractions of London via public transport, but would prefer to live like a local in a safe, quiet neighbourhood with a private garden, parks in all directions, shops and bus stops around the corner, and a handy play area for children a minute's walk away.

GREENWICH

Bus 53 comes past my house and will take you to the top of Greenwich Park, where you'll find the Observatory and Meridian line for Greenwich Mean Time. Down the hill from this, through the park, you'll find yourself in the heart of downtown Royal Greenwich and surrounded by beautiful Royal historical sites and buildings, including the Maritime Museum and the Old Royal Naval College, now Greenwich University.

OUTSIDE LONDON

Our location is also ideal for exploring the Kent countryside in the Southeast of England. I provide train maps and lots of tourist information to help you decide if you'd like to have a day out of the city to explore something that can only be found in the countryside. Also from Woolwich Arsenal, you can get trains to these locations outside the city.

EXPLORING EUROPE

If you're using my home as your European base for a few weeks or more, you'll be pleased to know that City Airport is just 20 minutes from my front door on public transport. From here, you can fly all over Europe if you fancy a quick city escape to explore some other parts of Europe.

Likewise, it's very easy to rent a car and drive over to France on the ferry or through the Eurotunnel to do some shopping for French products or to explore a bit of France or Belgium for a couple of days.

FOR GOLF ENTHUSIASTS

Shooters Hill Golf Club is the nearest at 1.5 miles away. Golf was first played here in 1903 and is full of history as a Prisoner of War camp for some 1000 German and Italian prisoners (www.shgc.uk.com/).

Three other courses are all about four miles away. Firstly, Royal Blackheath Golf Club, believed to be the oldest golf club in the world, dating to 1608, with 36 holes over 110 acres.

Secondly, Eltham Warren Golf Club (18 holes), founded in 1890, and one of England’s oldest nine hole courses.

Finally, Bexleyheath Golf Club, founded in 1909 and sure to given even the expert golfer some impressive challenges. All warmly welcome visitors.

Notes:
The living room has an original Victorian fireplace, converted to gas, that creates a lovely cozy atmosphere in the evenings. There is also a bay window, two leather sofas, writing desk, closet, radio/CD player, 42' flat screen TV/DVD, trunk full of games and shelving containing lots of books, DVDs and tourist information. The kitchen is fully modernised, complete with dishwasher, washing machine (dryer in the shed), fridge, freezer, electric oven, gas hob and safe for your valuables. A low window looks onto the garden, making it probably my favorite room in the house. The table can seat four comfortably and six if needed. There is a satellite TV/DVD and small sofa for two to make socialisation easy whilst cooking. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the pots, pans and utensils you will need for cooking almost any meal and some food essentials are also provided. There is ample food storage.
