HOW WE TAKE CARE OF YOU

From the moment you walk through the front door of our Edwardian townhouse, we want you to feel welcome. Our townhouse is spacious, light and lovingly cared for. We provide high speed wireless internet, free long distance phone calls to North America, Australia and most of Europe and oyster cards (travel cards) which you can top up across the street and use on all tubes and buses. We take care of you before you arrive with our own guide to the area, including nearby stores and restaurants, a little local history and some of our favorite haunts. We also mail you directions and descriptions of our favorite London walks and a street map of London, which includes bus routes and tube stops. If you need any advice about your stay just email or call 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 (where you can top up the travel cards we leave you) as well as restaurants and delis (such as Bon Appetit, specializing in homemade croissants).

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. (Check out the puppet theatre barge, the canal boat ride to the zoo and the waterfront eateries.) Want to venture further? The Portabello Road Market and antique district in Notting Hill is a little over half an hour's walk.

OUR EDWARDIAN TOWNHOUSE

The reception room has large windows and classic features marking the style 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 dining room, which can be closed off from the living room, is stocked with Portmeirion china and has a couch and TV nook at the far end. The eat-in kitchen has 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 Airport 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.) For example, 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. The Number 6 bus runs 24 hours and stops two blocks from our residence. It has a great route – stops at Oxford Circus, Piccadilly Circus, and Trafalgar Square. 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.

About Fatijah Clark

My husband and I live in California, which we love - but I am English - grew up in London - and was missing my friends and family. We were fortunate enough to buy this Edwardian townhouse. We visit whenever we can and when we can't be there, we love that other people are able to enjoy London.

Fatijah Clark purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Fatijah Clark chose Westminster and West End

We looked for over a year at more than 50 residences to find the perfect home base. We wanted it to be easily accessible from Heathrow, to be near a good tube line and bus route so we could easily navigate all of London, to have its own separate entrance and a spacious interior, and preferably to be a period property in a charming neighborhood (if possible with a good deli and general store across the street). Voila! This is it!

What makes this townhome unique

The townhouse was built in the Edwardian era - late 1800's or early 1900's - and we have decorated it with prints and memorabilia from this era.

Our friendly neighborhood is a quiet oasis in busy London. It is also near two tube stops on an excellent tube line so all of London is easily accessible - trains run every 2 to 3 minutes and go straight to Oxford Circus, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square etc.

Wonderful place for our family

  • 5 of 5

Our family with 2 teenage daughters, stayed here for a week. We enjoyed the easy walking to the tube station, the convenience of shops and restaurants, and the comfort of this home. Fatijah was very easy to work with before our arrival, she was prompt returning emails, and provided a great guide to the neighborhood with descriptions of walks, restaurants, and shopping areas. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend to others.

Wonderful

  • 4 of 5

The property was perfect. Very convenient to a variety of restaurants and a grocery for making our stay more comfy. The house had all we needed and the key pad instead of an actual key was very helpful. The area is very nice and makes you feel part of a community. The beds were comfortable, the gathering room was very enjoyable to make plans for our upcoming day's adventures. The underground was a short walk and we were able to reach everything else from their. Thank you Fatijah for letting us use your home and I would recomend it highly. Kathy

My second stay in this charming London home!

  • 5 of 5

On this return trip my son, daughter-in-law and niece joined me. My niece was with me on my previous trip and was thrilled to be staying in this London home again. About a week into our visit we were enjoying the evening after a long day on our feet and my son said, 'staying here is so relaxing, it's like coming home at the end of the day'. That is exactly how it feels, the amenities (washer/dryer and full kitchen) also make it easy to pack lighter and 'eating in' enjoyable. The area is quiet, safe and just far enough from the hustle and bustle of the city to feel relaxing.The Castellain Guide provided is full of pertinent information to make getting around less stressful, recommends sights to see and several walking tours, that are a must. We discovered terrific restaurants, shopping areas and quiet out of the way places that we never would have seen otherwise. Fatijah is a pleasure to work with and as I can attest, also has a great sense of humor! I highly recommend this home, you will not be disappointed. If/when I make another journey to London, I will stay again.

One last note, the previous guest posted the dishwasher was not in working order... we found it to be working perfectly. We did notice the indicator light was on and the message read 'USER ERROR'!

Nice property in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

I have been to London many times, but this location and house is my new favorite. My wife and kids loved the house and being located in Maida Vale. It is an upscale residential area that is very safe and friendly. Restaurants, parks and things to do nearby and very close to the metro station. Fatijah (the owner) is very helpful and professional. We liked everything about it and will visit again. Can't go wrong with this one!

Lovely house and neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

We initially chose Maida Vale because it was close to friends we were visiting, but it turned out to be a great area to stay for our family trip to London. The house is only a 5 minute walk to the tube, which got us anywhere we wanted to go quickly. We loved the convenience of the bakery/shop/deli right across the street...we used them almost every day! The owner also gave us lots of information about the neighborhood and ideas for outings and restaurants. After walking all day through crowded London streets, it was great to be able to "come home" to our nice, quiet neighborhood and get a good night's sleep.

Giving 4 stars only because dishwasher didn't really work, so we had to hand wash all of our dishes which was time consuming - but if you like to eat out for most of your meals while on vacation (or the dishwasher gets replaced), then it is 5 stars!

Perfect Pad for Professional Purposes and Personal Pleasure!

  • 5 of 5

I had a marvellous time here. Beautiful and impeccably clean. Décor elegant but also very comfortable. Arrangements with Fatijah easy and efficient. Just round the corner from my work place for 6 days! Altogether perfect!

We provide a street map of London that is yours to keep. The townhouse has a library of guidebooks and brochures on historical sights, museums, parks, restaurants, walks, pubs, and day trips that are not to be missed. We'll advise you on getting around by bus or tube, how to top up your travel card, a few lesser known sights of London, and a few of our favorite hole-in -the-wall restaurants. We also provide information on walks that we love and day trips to historic places an hour's train ride from London.

We love London and hope you will too.
