HOW WE TAKE CARE OF YOU. Our townhouse is spacious, light and lovingly cared for. We provide high speed wireless internet, free phone calls and oyster cards for bus and tube travel. Before you arrive we mail you our own guide to the area as well as our favorite walks and a street map of London. If you need any advice, just call or email Fatijah (presently in California but still a Londoner at heart.) If anything crops up during your stay, text our wonderful property manager who is there to help.
THE CHARMING SAFE NEIGHBORHOOD. Maida Vale, one of Central London's upscale neighborhoods, is a sought after area for Londoners, because while you can easily get anywhere in central London, it is also quiet and friendly, without the pollution and bustle of Soho or Oxford Street. The charming parade of shops boasts a florist, beauty parlor, and general store as well as restaurants and delis.
One block away is a large park with two children’s playgrounds and a running track (where Roger Bannister trained to break the 4 minute mile). The Abbey Road Studios, where the Beatles recorded, is a 15-minute walk; as is Little Venice, with its 18th century canals and colorful houseboats. Want to venture further? Portabello Road Market in Notting Hill is a little over half an hour's walk.
OUR EDWARDIAN TOWNHOUSE. The reception room has the classic features of the late 1800's: nine-foot ceilings, crown molding, crystal chandeliers and period prints. We provide high speed wireless internet, a high-end stereo system and an assortment of guidebooks and brochures.The first floor has a dining room, living room, TV room and an eat-in kitchen with modern appliances as well as a washer and a dryer. The two bedrooms, on the upper floor, are large and light. The master bedroom has a queen size bed. The second bedroom has a double and a single bed, plus a pull out trundle bed. Both bedrooms overlook one-way streets with trees and little traffic. The bathroom is vast, with a tub, shower, and bidet - as well as excellent water pressure.
CENTRAL LONDON AT YOUR DOORSTEP. From Heathrow, take the 15 minute Heathrow Express to Paddington Station. Go one tube stop or a very short cab ride. You’ve arrived!
Our townhouse is close to two tube stations, Maida Vale and Warwick Avenue. You can get anywhere in Central London with ease. (The Bakerloo line is one of the best, with trains running every 2 or 3 minutes.) Oxford Circus, London’s shopping mecca, is a ten-minute tube ride. Piccadilly Circus, the center of the theater district, is a twelve-minute ride. You can get on and off the tubes and buses easily with a travel card. Whether you spend your days navigating the crowds on Oxford Street, touring Westminster Abbey, or awed by the Tower of London, you will welcome returning to our quiet, safe oasis.
