We had a wonderful visit to London and enjoyed the hospitality of the hosts. The house had everything we needed to be comfortable, and the location was easy to get into the heart of London but just removed enough to enjoy a quiet neighborhood too.
Everything we needed
This had all we needed except we were told the washer & dryer wasn’t worth bothering with that it took too long. Well we’re on a 3 week vacation so this was one reason we picked this place . Other than that it suits our needs. Other than the lengthy explanation about where to go in town and what to do would have been appreciated if it were not upon arrival, as we had been up well over 24 hours and Jeff didn’t seem to grasp that was not the proper time to be going on and on and on. All we wanted was to relax. But that aside we had a great stay and all our needs were met.
Wonderful for our large group with little kids
We had a group of 6 adults and 3 kids (ages 2, 4, 5) stay for 9 days and everything was perfect! I wasn’t sure how the space with 9 people for that long would work, but everyone agreed it was plenty of space, everything was clean and all the little extras (some prestocked food, bath supplies, board games for the kids, book with recommendations and directions for nearby restaurants) were really appreciated. It was an easy walk to the bus stop, and a quick bus ride to the tube station. Two great grocery stores were a very quick walk, as well as a nice park a couple of blocks away. The outdoor space was also great for our larger group, we could either let the kids outside for a bit or the adults could sit out where it was quieter and have a drink. I could go on, but I’d just be repeating what other reviewers have already said. Would definitely be our first choice for a rental if we’re ever back in London.
Great place to stay
Property was clean, quiet, comfortable and a convenient 15 min. Bus ride to the center
Perfect location & great hosts
We just arrived back in the US after a jam-packed 5 days in SUNNY, WARM?! London with “red door #4” as home base.
Jeff & Bev were great (and patient) communicators by both email (before we arrived, answering my many questions) and at the start of our visit/upon arrival.
If you’ve read the other reviews you know about Oyster cards, breakfast supplies, the binder, etc. and these touches really do make a difference. We felt like we were locals and took full advantage of the great location and public transportation (don’t hesitate - just do it!). The Oyster cards were easy to reload at a small convenience store around the corner and bus stop was just a block and a half walk. We went all over London and we really busy but loved coming back to a safe, quiet home that gave us (and our teens - who need their breathing room) space to recuperate and rest.
There’s a cute park to walk to/relax in about 4 blocks to the right, and we took Jeff & Bev up on their restaurant recommendations including tapas (at A Toca...amazing sangria, too) and Thai delivery (take away) on our last lazy night in.
Special touches included fresh flowers in the foyer, DVDs (we were thematic and watched Harry Potter and 007) and extra towels when requested (we just did not feel like doing laundry while on vacay).
The kitchen was well equipped - but keep the door closed while cooking (we set the smoke alarm off twice with bacon and toast), and patio was adorable and perfect for a last glass of wine.
The beds were comfy, there was plenty of hot water (we did have some issues with water pressure in the upstairs shower so just stuck with the downstairs one instead), and toiletries were provided. My only suggestion is that a new sectional/couch may be in order soon...but other chairs, blankets, games, books really made a huge difference between settling for a hotel room (or two if you have older/bigger kids) or settling in in a VRBO. Our kids agreed they never want to stay in a hotel again:)
Many thanks to Jeff and Bev for opening their (other) home and for helping us feel so comfortable exploring London.
Lovely couple, fantastic place!
Jeff and Bev were amazing. The flat was spotless and had everything you could need. There were converters in all the outlets, plenty of big fluffy towels, they even provided us with the groceries to make our first breakfast. The tube was a short walk away and 2 bus stops even closer. They gave us some great advice about both London and our next stop, Paris. Highly recommend!
