Interaction with guests
Whole place is for guests use. I live close by so will try to meet and greet guests (if possible I will collect guests arriving by metro from Chichester station - if not its only a 5 min walk or cabs are always at the station!) wherever possible and if they would prefer this by prior agreement. However, as I travel regularly I cannot be guaranteed to be around to meet in person but I have support for all of my properties and I am always available via telephone as and when required. Please enquire if you have any questions. Please feel free to contact one of us on the contact numbers provided in the information pack if you need any further information or have any issues during your stay and we will be glad to help and resolve anything we can

About the neighbourhood
Situated centrally in the Westoe area of South Shields but in a really quiet street. Uninterrupted and unoverlooked views at the front over the beautiful South Shields Cricket and Westoe Rugby Club Stadium. The apartment is close enough (less than five minutes walk) to Chichester metro station for a busier night in South Shields or Newcastle city centre (25 minutes door to door) or there are nice restaurants (e.g. Lasun Indian restaurant) and bars (Nine Bar, Hedworth Hall, The County etc) within 2-3 minutes walk. There are ample amenities nearby, a great little corner shop open till late, mini supermarket, and a pharmacy on Dean Road; 2-3 mins walk and Aldi just little further. Bus to Sunderland also from Dean Road.
Getting around
It is a 5 minutes walk to both the local South Tyneside College and Chichester metro station with direct trains to South Shields, Newcastle city centre and Newcastle Airport. There is a good bus service from Dean Road (a 2-3 minutes walk) to the beautiful South Shields sea front/coast and to Sunderland/Newcastle city centres. NOTE: The price shown on the initial search results is for the minimum number of guests. As other properties we charge more for extra guests above the base level. Sub total = refundable deposit plus nightly/extra guest fees. IMPORTANT NOTE: STRICTLY 8 ADULTS MAXIMUM - no people coming to party hard folks. I have had to physically remove guests, with police The seafront is approximately a 20 minute walk away.
