Hi, we're a couple with a 20 month old baby and a lovely house in a convenient and sought-after location.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR A LODGER OR SHORT TERM RENTALS FOR OUR BACK ROOM, BUT ALSO BETWEEN 22ND FEB AND 13TH MARCH WE WANT TO RENT THE WHOLE HOUSE OUT!
More details below if you are just interested in the room, but if you are interested in the whole house while we are away, you can have 2 double bedrooms, a single and a baby's room with a cot and a sofabed, all to yourself for 2.5 weeks for a flat rate of £1500 or nearest offer. (more photos of other rooms available)
This is a charming and quiet Victorian house with a distinct style, and I think if you come from abroad you would feel you were truly staying in an English house - though with evidence of much international travel in the house's decoration!
We're based in a convenient and vibrant residential location popular with media and arty types. You could hang out in this area for weeks and not get bored - lots of trendy bars and pubs, restaurants, coffee shops, boutique clothes shops, parks and clubs and the lovely Queen's Park with tennis courts etc. As well as supermarkets, farmer's market and so on.
The room itself looks out on the garden, has a double bed with storage drawers, wardrobe, shelves, is painted white, and a little desk-bureau. Beyond the garden is the train line but you don't notice the trains because they are very new electric ones and are not like being close to a tube line. The bathroom is nearby and shared with us, but there is also a pleasant shower room and a third toilet, so it's never crowded! There's a lovely garden, and a well equipped eat-in kitchen. There is wireless broadband all over the house.
If you have a car, it is possible to pay for a permit (either around £1 a day or £30 for 3 months) and we're extremely convenient for motorways ( M1, A40/M40, and M4, and north circular) .
It's only 30 seconds to the Overground train (Kensal Rise) which gets you to East London in 25 minutes, and to Richmond and Kew Gardens in 20 mins, Camden and Hampstead in 12 minutes, Shepherd's Bush Westfields shopping centre in 10 mins; and the Bakerloo line tube (Kensal Green) nearby is also very convenient (20 mins to Oxford Circus, 15 mins to Euston) . You can get lots of buses to useful places - Notting Hill is 15 mins away, kensington, Sloan Sq, etc.
Please note - clean and tidy, responsible grown-ups preferred, who are sympathetic to toddlers! We are particularly open to people who want to stay longer than a week.
Look forward to hearing from you!

Petica, Will and little Billy form a really, really nice family. it's difficult to imagine how I could have felt more at home and more warmly welcome. It was a wonderful stay, in a very pleasant house and surprisingly convenient location, and I would go back anytime. My only reservation concerns the bed, which is ok but not very exciting - it would definitely be very small for two people - but then I stayed one month, which is long. All the rest gets top grades! The garden is a very pleasant summer addition. And Will's quiet sense of humour (Petica was usually busy with the baby) was a treat after my busy and exhausting days.
Petica's house makes your experience very special. The house is extremely charming, with an Asian touch and an incredible spirit as Petica.
As for the location and the environment, I found it perfect and convenient. Within 15-20 minutes you are in the heart of London.
I highly recommend Petica's house, as Petica herself who is an amazing hostesss and who will make your stay in London memorable!
