There are two washing machines, two tumble dryers, one washer dryer and four large fridge freezers, so plenty of amenities for tenants to enjoy. Housemates currently living here have moved in because they are looking for a place to call home and make new friends so we ask that you are sociable, friendly, polite and respectful to fit in with the current housemates.
This beautiful listed building dating back to pre 1900s was previously a public house. ‘The Steam Packet Inn’ is situated in the popular marina area near the city centre and was fully renovated in September 2017 to resemble the style of a boutique hotel and accommodate working professionals. The house is very well laid out and beautifully presented with each of the 15 bedrooms spread out, with 5 rooms on each floor and a kitchen on the ground and top floor. The size of this property can only be appreciated when viewing it in person. The lounge area, with its three large sofas and two armchairs, is huge! Despite its size, the décor makes it a homely place to live and is well looked after by the existing tenants and twice weekly team of cleaners. The sprawling, wonderfully lit roof terrace, is a welcome replacement for a garden and provides plenty of outdoor space. This is a house share for working professionals so perfect for making new friends if you are a newcomer to the area.
We are happy to send you video tours of any of our available properties as well of the individual bedrooms on Whatsapp in case you are not able to view the property in person. If it is not possible for you to attend a viewing and meet us in person, then we would require a video call with you, in place of a face to face meeting, in which we would talk you through the application process to ensure you are happy and able to fulfil our application criteria.
Please be aware that we require a holding fee one week’s rent to secure the room whilst we take you through the application process. Our application process includes references, checking ID and share codes if you are not a UK resident. Once the application process is complete, we will then require a full month’s rent as a deposit, minus the one week’s holding fee you have already paid. These deposit details will then be entered into the ‘Mydeposits’ scheme and you will be issued with a certificate as proof of this protection. The day that you move into the property we will require another month’s rent for the month ahead. To help your budgeting, basically we require a payment of two months’ rent (broken down in the three stages as described above) before we can let you move in.
