Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home, spacious, three bedrooms and two family rooms. Comfortable beds and close to buses and underground. Alan kindly met us despite our tardy arrival (train delay) and explained everything to us. He was ready to help us if we needed anything (turns out we didn’t, but it was nice to know he was available).

Quintessential London

  • 5 of 5

Our family with six adults enjoyed every moment at our London flat. There was plenty of space to sleep, relax and have private space. It's located close (20 minutes walking) to the action of downtown London and only a two blocks to Lambeth Underground. Alan was the perfect host who gave us our privacy, but he was available if anything was needed. The house was located in a comfortable neighborhood, and the garden in the back of the house was a delight. It was the perfect London experience.

Excellent City Stay in beautiful Historic Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the beautiful property for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time. This property has easy access to public transport - the bus stops just 5 houses away and just 3 houses away is a Bicycle Stand where you can rent a bike and travel quickly across Lambeth Bridge into Parliament Square. The #59 Bus will take you directly to Kings Cross/St Pancras Station for access to the Eurostar and the airports.

This property has everything you need to have an comfortable stay with 3 double bedrooms; 2 full bathrooms and 1 powder room, fabulous kitchen / family room and a very characterful sitting room. The garden is a delight too. There is also off street parking available! Alan was a great host and was available for information and assistance.

I hope we are able to return and next time we would stay for a week as it is so close to everything.

Great location, great ambiance

  • 5 of 5

Could not have had a better host or location. Bus and tube steps away. Alan is very nice and helpful and was willing to answer any questions before we arrived as well as during our stay. He even helped us with the parking of our vehicle by giving us visitors passes. We especially enjoyed the sitting room for evening cocktails. The space was impeccably clean and we enjoyed every minute. We would absolutely recommend Alan and his home.

Absolutely charming!

  • 5 of 5

The townhouse was well-equipped and very homey, with tons of books, natural light and garden views. Alan was easy to meet up with (something that always makes me nervous), and very helpful. The house had maps, spices, and umbrellas and such, not just a sterile rental. Very happy with our stay.
