Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Derek



I’m emailing your personal account as I wanted to let you know that we were very pleased with our stay at your flat in August, (21st to 25th). I started to put my review on through Homeaway but it would not let me proceed without creating a “traveller account” with them which I did not want to do. I’ve put my review below.



Once again, thanks for all the help provided by both you and your family during our stay.



“We stayed here in August, there were four of us. The accommodation was clean, bright and very comfortable.



The owner was very helpful and we were met immediately on arrival by the owner's brother and sister in law, there was no waiting around to get the keys. All the facilities were as described, we would definitely recommend to friends.



The flat is perfectly located for a day trips to London as the train station is about 5 minutes’ walk away.”



Kind regards



Rachel

Comfortable stay!

  • 4 of 5

The photos shown are accurate to what the apartment looks like. The hosts were very friendly, kind and helpful. It suited our needs during our stay. There are grocery stores nearby. It takes about 30 minutes (sometimes longer) to reach Liverpool Station from the apartment, so plan accordingly. The neighborhood is quite rundown, but we felt safe and even left our car for a few days at time with no problem. I would have given 5 stars, but I believe there are some upgrades that would make this apartment even better. The toilet didn't work properly and the fridge didn't keep food very cold.

Beautiful apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is very clean, big enough for 6 and full of light. Caren was nice and helpful, she explane the use of the apartment and how to reach the centre of London. . We had an early check in and a late check out. Maybe one bathroom is not enough for 6 but we manage. The apartment is near the subway and getting to London is easy and safe. Takes almost 1 hour so if you book this apartment be aware that you will go out in the morning and came back at night. Easy to reach the apartment for the airports. We will wait for you in Rome Caren.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is situated in a good location,with several shops,restaurants and railway station not far away.

The apartment is a really cosy on,even if it is not too big,it was comfortable enough for the 6 of us.

No complaints over cleanliness,all was spotless.

The kitchen is very well equipped,we were even able to bake a cake and pizza!

The best part was maybe the owners-Caren and Robert were very friendly and gave us useful info about buses,trains,restos etc.

All in all,we had a great stay there,it felt like home,and we actually missed it when we left.

Will definitely come back there!

Love the Place!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely adorable. As you walked in the front door, it will led to a small hallway where there are four doors: to the living room, bedroom, master bedroom and bathroom. It is as shown in the photos but better looking in reality. The kitchen has just about every basic cooking utensils required. The Caldeira provided a wine, bread and milk for us when we arrived. It was wonderful. Thank you guys.

The place is clean, bedding comfortable. Love it to the max. Please visit Romford which is a station away. It is lovely.

The apartment is not far from Liverpool Street Station, about 25 minutes away.

Arriving in Hearthrow, we took a train to using Picadilly to Hoborn (not a good option if a lot luggages due to lots of stairs. Better option is going to Green Park by Picadilly to Stratford where there is lifts). From Hoborn to Liverpool Street then use TFL to Chadwell Heath. Took us two hours to reach the apartment because we were slow in moving. :)

We would definitely come back and stay at this apartment again when we come to London. Thanks Caren and Robert for their hospitality.

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

Apartment has everything you need;

beds are good, kitchen complete, living room okay, bathroom clean.

Supermarket within 10 minutes walk, Underground also 10 minutes.

In about 40 minutes you're in the center of London.

We visited the apartment with 2 adults and 3 children. Apartment was big enough. When visiting London again I will try to book it again.

Caren is very friendly. We arrived after midnight which was not a problem. We met for the keys and she showed us the apartment and told us about the supremarkets and metro.

Caren, thanks for your hospitality!!

Well-maintained

  • 4 of 5

The listing description was accurate and the property was clean and well-maintained. Everything you could possibly need (even a washing machine or iron) is provided. The owners were very helpful and friendly. It takes about 20 minutes by train to get to Liverpool Street station and from there you can easily change to the lines that take you to all the sights. I didn't give 5 stars though, because the neighbourhood wasn't very pretty: there weren't any nice cafes or bars that you would go to in the evening.
