Hi All,

I am looking for accommodation for a 3-6 month period (potentially more) near Leeds Bradford. I'm a single, non-smoker with no children or pets.

Any assistance would be much appreciated.



p.s. I would prefer somewhere within 2 miles of the Airport, but would consider further afield.

BGY Flat

Seasonal, only c.crew and pilots. I rent elegant quiet apartment for 2-3 people in Bergamo. Free from June to October. Not short term, no years of course ;-) The flat is 2 bus stops from the airport. The bus passes in front of the house and connects the airport to the city.
500 per month for 2, 600 for 3.
Note: Don't confuse Bergamo-Orio-al-Serio and Milan Linate. They're the same society but between the airports are 51 km away. If you're not interested, but you work in Bergamo, please forward this information to colleagues or stick it on the bulletin board because the agencies takes 2 to 6 months in advance + 10%.. Write me for photos and link. TIA

BGY- Bergamo (Italy) accomodation

I'm renting my flat located in Bergamo, two bus stops from the airport BGY (or 2,5km).
The apartment is very well furnished and complete with everything (it's my home and I work in hotel in CH)
You can find everything: from washing to iron, from the cleaner to sugar.
The ap: living room, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom with 2 single beds.
550 euro/month for the flat.
web Casa in cascina sul "palchet"
Please take note:
1. Bergamo is a beautiful, charming, tourist city with a Tuscany look. So very expensive for a small city.
2. Do not confuse: BGY and LIN are the same airport? yes-no. They're the same society but two different airports. BGY is 30 km (Autoroute 4) from Milan LIN Airport. If you're based in LIN: it's true that the transfer BGY-LIN is free, it's true that Bergamo is less expensive, but you lose too much time to live in Bergamo, it's better if you look for a place in Milan.
2. BGY in 2014 is closed until June 6 (the new runway).Don't wait the end of May or you remains without accomodation.
3. If you don't find anything try to go to the bar on Via Campagnola 2: there are ex-crew and ask them. I think so you spend less.
I hope to be helpful.

I have a beautiful double room to rent 30 second walk from Kings X stn. 25 mins to LHR and 45 mins to LGW.

Room available by end of this week and want someone in before end of May.

Looking for part time accommodation near Gatwick

Hi, I am looking for accommodation on a B&B or lodger basis, a couple of nights per week close to LGW. It must be nice and quiet, parking and internet are a bonus.I am flight crew, living a few hours away so just needing it for those early starts and minimum rest breaks. No need to keep anything in the room and no access to living room or kitchen required, you will hardly know I am there. References no problem.

Toronto CrashPad

Starting at 220$
Basically the nearest thing to a hotel.
Located 15 minutes by bus from the airport.
One direct bus ride every 15 to 20 minutes during day time.
Perfect for pilots and flight attendants commuting to Toronto.
Newly renovated, with access to microwave, toaster, toaster oven, coffee machine, stove, washer and dryer.
Common spaces includes a washroom, balcony, small living room and kitchen/dining area.
WiFi internet, towels, hair dryer, detergents, iron, included.
Small plaza with grocery store, pharmacy, bank, Mac Donalds, pizza place... 5 minutes walk away.
email me at: [email protected]

The condo is mostly use by pilots commuting. Usually a commuter comes to the condo the night before for a early departure the next day. Or arrives in the morning for a departure later in the day. When on reserve it can happen that a commuter stays at the condo for many days in a row if he doesn't get call. Also when between two flights there is too little time to go back home, the commuter can use the condo instead. Since most of the people are commuters, it is rare to see a large number of individual at the same time.
Each room has 1 bunk-bed. Everyone owns a bed and a cabinet space.

Shepperton - Two bedroom detached property. No Onward Chain

No Onward Chain

A developers delight . . .

This is a two bedroom, gas central heated, detached property on the sought after River Ash Estate; a convenient location within easy reach of local amenities and public transport links. (Apparently, only nine properties have become available for sale in the last two decades.) Postcode: TW17 8NQ

The property would be enhanced by a loft conversion (subject to planning permission). Alternatively, the plot could accommodate an extensive renovation or even new construction of a much larger home, the second floor of which would command views of Shepperton Marina. As-is, the property is a fantastic investment opportunity and currently commands a rental income of 1,500 per month. (My last tenants lived there happily for over five years and only moved out due to me wishing to sell the property.)

Valued in March at 420,000.00
For quick sale at 399,000.00

Please feel free to ask me any questions, photos, etc.

Key Features:

Located in a cul-de-sac on a quiet, private riverside estate.

A generous rear garden, which abuts Shepperton Marina, which in turn is adjacent to a swan sanctuary.

Off-street parking - and plenty of on-street parking, which is a private road.

Ample scope for extending.

Shared estate river mooring for the loading and off-loading of boats.

Local hotel, a four minute walk away, offers favourable gym/swimming pool, etc., membership concession to colony residents.

About Shepperton:

Shepperton - an overgrown village nestled in a bend of the River Thames - is within the M25, five miles from Heathrow, 35 miles from Gatwick.

Easy access to M25 (junctions 10 and 11) and both the M3 and M4.

It's the home of the famous film studio, and is about 45 minutes by car to central London - via the A316 - same time by train to London Waterloo. Less to Wimbledon, where London's tube network can be utilised.

The film studios are a five minute drive from the property; the village high street, less. There, you can find a Budgens and smaller grocery type shops, chemists, pubs, off-licence, BP garage, newsagents, dry cleaners, police office, banks, post office, library, hair dressers, Chinese, Indian, dentist, solicitors, opticians, betting shop, etc.

There are larger supermarkets within a 10 minute drive of the property, i.e., Tesco, Sainsbury's, etc.

Nearby shopping mall type areas include Walton, Kingston and Woking.
