The House We Stayed for 60 Days in Newcastle, UK
I promised earlier to make a post on the house we rented for 2 months. It was not easy to rent a house for 2 months. In Malaysia, we probably can rent a Homestay for 2 months. However in UK, majority of the property agent only allows a minimum of 6 months. We have anticipated this before heading to United Kingdom as we’ve searched and contacted several property agent online and by phone. The answers are all the same. A minimum of 6 months.
Short Note: I’m supposed to publish this blog post when we were in UK. However, I was pretty much occupied with my work… So, the post which I wrote and saved earlier is now published (delayed publication).
That’s why when Debbie from Reeds Rains (a property agent company) called and invited us to view a house that can be rented for 2 months, we accepted the invitation happily. We visited and checked out the house. When we first saw it, it was not pleasant because it was in a mess and is not clean. However, since we are don’t have second option, we just accepted it. We cannot complain much because we are just staying for 2 months. So, we moved into the house on the first Saturday we were in UK. Remember, we landed in UK on Tuesday. That means, we stayed at Mr. Azizul’s house from Tuesday until Saturday. It’s good to be finally having our own home because we don’t want to keep on making trouble for Mr. Azizul and his family.
The house is located at Gainsborough Grove, Authors Hill. It is a terrace house. We stayed on the first floor while the ground floor is occupied by someone else. You can see the front of our house if you click here and check out Facebook/cyzasector header. The house consisted of 3 rooms, a hall, a kitchen and a toilet. The house is equipped with central gas heating which is imperative to heat the house/rooms. The cooker and shower is electrically operated. A double bed is available in the master bed room. A single bed is in the smallest bedroom for Ikhwan while 2 single beds are available in Marsya and Alya’s room.
The following are some photos of the house condition at the time we moved in (5/5/2012).
Coming up…the house after we cleaned and make some minor rearrangement…
