Interaction with Guests

I am excited to welcome you to London! Well travelled myself I know the importance of home comforts and a good nights rest, so I am keen to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

Holland Park is a beautiful upmarket residential area. The apartment is within walking distance of trendy Notting Hill, the famous Portobello Road and glamorous Kensington, and within easy reach of central London and the West End and all the great shopping, clubs and restaurants, museums and entertainment you would expect from a great city.
Local amenities include Westfield Shopping Centre with its excellent shopping, convenient supermarket, 17 screen cinema and leisure facilities. Westfield Shopping Centre is a 5 minute walk away.

Shepherds Bush is also served by the London Overground with frequent services to Clapham Junction (for Gatwick airport).

The apartment is very conveniently located for catching the original London tour bus and the Oxford tube.

London tour bus:
The 'Original Tour' London Sight Seeing Bus offers an all day 'hop-on hop-off' service to all major tour destinations. The bus tour stops to pick up/drop off passengers at the Royal Crescent bus stop which is located just outside the Kensington Hilton Hotel, within a few minutes walk of the apartment. Tickets cost £26 and can be bought at the concierge desk in the Hotel, or directly on the bus itself. This is a great way to enjoy London (especially when the weather's behaving itself!)

  • L accueil est courtois.
    La chambre est de taille correcte et le lit très confortable.
    L immeuble est situé sur une rue bruyante mais la chambre donne de l autre côté donc le bruit est atténué.
    Le petit déjeuné est agréable.
    Le sol craque beaucoup tant dans l appartement que chez les voisins.
    La salle de bain et les wc sont dans la mêmes pièce et en partage avec la propriétaire.
    Le centre commercial westfield permet de laisser les bagages en cas d arrivée avant 15h et de départ après 11h la consigne se situe au niveau -1 et coûte 5 livres par bagages. C est très pratique.
    La proximité du métro et des bus est très appréciable.

  • Very pleasant stay!
    Josephine is a nice and supportive person.
    Her flat is situated very close to Notting Hill and Holland Park so you can easily walk to those places.

    April 2014
  • We had a very enjoyable stay at Josephine's flat. Josephine is very pleasant and friendly, and she provided helpful suggestions about places to visit and restaurants to eat in. The flat is quiet at night (very little traffic noise), the bed is very comfortable, and the remodeled bathroom is modern. The breakfast was the same every day-juice,cold cereal and milk, toast, and tea. It was very adequate.

    The flat is only about a 5-10 min. walk to the Shepherd's Bush Underground station, from which you can access the remainder of London very conveniently.

    Overall, we were very satisfied with our stay at Josephine's flat, and would recommend it highly.

  • Josephine is great host, really helpful with answering any questions. The flat with Fantastic location near central London, convenient for any transports. Highly recommended!

    March 2014
  • We spent a lovely week-end at Josephine's place. It was exactly like on the pictures, very quiet, next to the bus and the underground station. We enjoyed nice breakfasts, and Josephine gave us a warm welcome.

    The only slight drawback was the obligation to pick up our luggage in the morning of the last day, so we had to let them at the luggage deposit (very expensive for a few hours!)

    February 2014
  • Everything is exactly as described by the pictures. A nice and really clean room (really quiet at night) and a large bathroom with huge shower.
    The house is just a couple of minutes away from Sheperd's Bush central line station and from the Overground. Fantastic.
    Josephine is really kind.

    February 2014
  • I had a lovely stay at Josephine's place. I really felt living in London as a local and not as a tourist. The house is just perfect, and all public transport is close by. A big recommendation to stay here!

    January 2014
  • Josephine is very friendly and a very good host. My bed was very comfortable and I had a good night sleep. Bathroom is pretty new. Good shower.
    Do not let the first impression of the building get you down. The hall way might require a fresh lick of paint but the actual bedroom and the flat is nice and comfortable.

  • My husband and I had a great stay at Josephine's place! Josephine was super friendly and flexible. Communication was easy - she responded really quickly during both booking and checking in. We stayed for one night on New Year's Eve and she made us feel comfortable with coming in quite late after ringing in the New Year. Josephine is very hospitable - she offered us a drink when we arrived and breakfast in the morning - we didn't stay for breakfast but we really appreciated her willingness to provide it! The room was just as it is in the pictures, and the bed was really comfy. The flat is in a great part of town - just a quick walk from the tube on the Central line. We were able to get to Picadilly/Soho/Covent Garden in less than 20 mins. We loved staying at Josephine's and would definitely stay again!

    January 2014
  • The location was very convenient to the Underground and to the Westfield mall which has lots of food and shopping choices. It was a bit far away from the center of London, so allow for travel time with any timed entrance to an event or venue. Get the day pass on the Underground which costs less than 2 single tickets. My room was perfectly suited to my needs and I loved having internet access after not having any in the countryside.

The reason I'm holding a plate of cakes is that I'm a pastrychef by trade, so as part of your welcome to my home I can offer you delicious home baked sweet treats (although naturally if you're watching your waistlines this is entirely optional!) The second photo is of me with my lovely Mum Margaret, your co-host in Wimbledon.
