Clean, roomy, comfortable
Colin is wonderful host, we came a little early and were able to get into the house. Anytime I had a question he reply within a few hours, I think the communication was great. The underground station is very close (less than a mile) and there are grocery stores close (closest one being on Whitestile Rd- 2 blocks away) and couple.pubs close (our favorite was The Globe) The request I do have would be --> have a manual on the washer / drier unit, could not figure our how to use the drier.
Great house, clean and well supplied. The Lord Nelson down the street was perfect. Train and Tube stations close by. Couldn't have asked for better
The house was clean, neat and comfortable. Not too far from tube and stores. The kitchen was beautiful, but would have been nice to have more than 1 dishtowel and there were no potholders. The tube is a fairly easy walk. It would have been nice to have directions in the house though. We had a great dinner at the Globe pub. I would recommend this rental for families or groups of friends
Good for a family
This property worked well for us with our extended family. Communication with the owner was slow at times. Superficially everything was good but the property needs some TLC behind cupboard door & drawers.
There was no information folder so we had trouble accessing heating & had some electrical issues.
If you have a chance to rent this home, take it. Colin was really great to work with, and accommodated our schedule and flight changes. The house is exactly as represented in the pictures and descriptions -- just a charming place.
Location: the house is located 15 minutes walk away from two different Tube stations on the Piccadilly (blue) Line, and 5 minutes from at least two bus stops. Getting into the City was a breeze; we had no trouble at all. It's a quiet neighborhood on a side street; within walking distance is a corner store/bodega for basic groceries, a pub, and numerous restaurants and take-outs. Although we had a car pick us up at Heathrow when we arrived, it was just as easy to take the train to the airport when we left, even with luggage. I had some concerns about staying so far outside Central London, but it worked out wonderfully. There are some fantastic neighborhoods nearby with LOTS of restaurants of every type.
Amenities: the house had everything we needed, with a fully stocked kitchen, TVs in every bedroom, and 2 full baths. It was clean and well-kept. We had three adults and two teenagers, and there was plenty of room for everyone. It's a 3 floor house, so the stairs are a bit steep. The first floor has an eat in kitchen, and a living room. There are two double bedrooms on the 2nd floor, with a bathroom a few steps down. The third bedroom, upstairs, has another bathroom with twin beds that you can push together and another double bed. There is free WiFi. Had we stayed longer (and not been on the go so much), we probably would have hung out in the sunroom, which is lovely.
My only suggestion would be to leave a binder of useful information, like how to get to the nearest Tube stations, and how to use those appliances! I recommend downloading the CityPlanner app; once I had that, it was obvious how convenient the place was to everything. But honestly, there wasn't one thing to complain about in this house. Even the neighbors were nice.
It was a real leap of faith to rent a home in another country based only on a website, but I have to say, not only was I NOT disappointed by Colin's property, I was quite thrilled. Seriously, if you can rent this place, do. I recommend it very highly.
Excellent House with all the Amenities!
We were a group of 7 adults & 2 kids and we simply loved the house. It was very well maintained and the communication was excellent. There was plumbing issue which was dealt with almost immediately. The house is well equipped with all the utensils and other appliances. Walking distance from the 65 # bus stop on South Ealing Road (Darwin Road Bus Stop). There is a local newsagent shop at a convenient distance and a local pub few yards away. We had a wonderful & memorable stay at this house. Thanks Colin & Martin for the pleasant stay.
This Victorian House is located on the borders of South Ealing and Brentford. It's 5 mins walk from Brentford rail station which goes to Waterloo Station in Central London about 6 times an hour. It is 15 minutes walk from South Ealing Tube on the Picadilly line. It is 8 stops to Hyde Park Corner. It is only 8 stops from Heathrow. There is free on road parking outside the property. The M4 motorway is 2 minutes away. There is a bus stop close by taking you direct to Ealing Broadway Shopping Centre, Ealing Common and nearby public open spaces. It is a very quiet residential street. There are very nice pubs, restaurants and local shops a few minutes walk from the property. It is a short walk from the River Thames and on the other side of Kew Bridge you have Kew Gardens.
