About this listing
Comfortable and relaxing home from home. Very near central London - you can walk in 30 minutes to the Houses of Parliament or 10 minutes on the bus. 5 minutes from the London underground and the buses run all night almost to the door.
My home is warm and welcoming and it will be your home from home as everyone who comes here is always invited to relax and enjoy the space. It's newly decorated and is totally self contained and secure. The double room sleeps two people comfortably. In the room there is a radio and remote controlled tv with free view. It's a quiet room and overlooks the gardens below.
There is a kitchen for guests to eat breakfast which I provide - bread for toasting, jam, marmalade and milk for tea and coffee. The kitchen overlooks really nice gardens. You can use the kitchen at any time as another room to relax in and it overlooks the gardens so a great space to chill. You can buy things and put them in the fridge and there is a cupboard for you to store any food for yourself.
I provide towels and a hair dryer so you can travel lighter! There is a European electric plug and there are also umbrellas for you to borrow!
There are 2 WC's and 1 bathroom with shower and bathroom which is shared.
There are attractive bars and restaurants in the immediate area and typical London pubs. You can take the local buses if you like to anywhere but if you wanted to walk, it's a pleasant 25-30 minutes to the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, Trafalgar Square, Tate Britain etc. I am more than happy to help with any directions, guides or advice on where to go and what to do so you get the best out of your time here.
Although the check in and check out times are flexible they must be reasonable. Can everyone please let me know when you are arriving and departing as soon as you can as on rare occasions people may arrive on the same day that you are departing and so check in and check out times will vary. Don't worry, you will not be asked to check out before lunchtime and if no one is arriving that day you don't have to dash and you can leave your bags until you are ready to travel later in the day.
I look forward to making your stay a comfortable and enjoyable one while you're in London!
Your own room (which has tv/dvd, heater, desk and chair and WIFI)
Kitchen. which is communal at breakfast time but you can also use it for making tea and coffee during the day and to sit in as it's a really nice space.

Interaction with Guests
There is usually someone around to help you but you will always have phone contact if you need anything.
Diverse, close to centre, nice parks, quiet tree lined street, good cafés and local pubs,
Local buses run all night to and from the centre of London.
Other Things to Note
In winter the heating comes on automatically in the morning and also in the evening. For the time in between, if you need it, there is a heater in your room.
Please turn appliances and lights off when you go out.
At night turn off heaters in room for safety reasons.
Please take off your shoes at the front door.
If you need more towels or bedding please ask.
Please don't shower too late at night (I suggest 9.00pm) as the noise can disturb others.
Last rule: Enjoy your time in London :-)
WIr hatten einen wundervollen Aufenhalt in Lynns Apartment. Gleich am ertsen Tag haben wir Aufgrund einer Flugverspätung unseren Einchecktermin verpasst und Lynn hat trotzdem dafür gesorgt das wir auch noch um 23 Uhr einchecken konnten. Sandy hat uns noch am selben Abend viele Tipps gegeben und auch erklärt wie wir schnell von A nach B kommen. Die Wohnung ist wirklich gut gelegen und das Fahren mit dem Bus 88 war schnell, einfach und eine günstige Alternative zu dem Tour-Bussen. Immer wieder gerne =)
I didn't meet Lynn a lot, but our stay was wonderful. Lynn and her friend Sandy are both very kind. The house is located in zone 2, do near the centre of London and you can also walk in about 40 minutes. The room was clean and big enough. We really liked staying in this house!
everything was perfect - thank you for everything also to Sandy!
Meu anfitrião foi muito receptivo e acolhedor, fiquei na casa durante 1 mês e me senti como se aquela fosse realmente a minha casa. O bairro excelente com linhas de metrô e ônibus próximos à casa e a região em torno, com opções de restaurantes, supermercados, farmácias. Enfim uma bela experiência. Lynn e Sandy tornaram-se pessoas muito queridas e das quais lembraremos sempre com muito carinho e esperamos rever um dia pois fazem parte de bons momentos que passamos em Londres
My host was very receptive and welcoming, stayed in the house for 1 month and I felt as if that really was my home. Excellent neighborhood with subway lines and buses near the house and the area around, with choices of restaurants, supermarkets, pharmacies. Finally a beautiful experience. Lynn and Sandy have become very dear people and of which we will always remember with great affection and hope to revisit one day as part of good times we spent in London.
What about Alice loved your listing:
"The host Lynn made us feel at home. We spent a month at home and this time we only have good memories. We felt at ease and comfortable in the house because we are in a place that felt good. "
What Alice thinks you can Improve:
"Nothing to say about that. I think it was very appropriate, fulfilled, rules necessary for receiving guests with their own customs and rules such meant that there was respect and adequacy so that everyone feel good and safe. For me it was a great experience. I just have to thank the reception. "
We used this accommodation for our visit in London. Sandy was waiting for us on arrival and showed us around. Our stay was made comfortable and both Sandy and Lynn were informative and gave useful directions and suggestions to visit around London. Travelling is very easy if one will stay at this house as buses run 24 hours, every 6 minutes and the location is just a few meters away. Sandy is a really nice character who goes out of her way to help and assist in any way. The bedroom was comfortable and clean with a good internet connection and set in a quiet road overlooking private gardens. Recommendable.
Sandy oli meitä ovella vastassa ja auttoi matkalaukkujen kanssa, joten vastaanotto ei olisi voinut olla lämpimämpi! Kuvaus kohteesta oli varsin tarkka, olin vain kuvitellut, että piha-aluettakin olisi ollut käytössä. Alue oli rauhallinen ja turvallinen lapsen kanssa liikkua.
We arrived early but were warmly greeted by Sandy with a cup of tea and left our bags before heading out to the city.
Sandy was a great source of information and we appreciated the advice she gave us. Our Saturday outing to Brixton Market was down to her and it was one of the highlights of our week.
The room was spacious with a view to the rear garden which features a large gum tree.The bed was comfortable and the area very quiet so we slept well.
The bus stop for the 88 bus to Trafalgar Square is a short walk away.
After a tiring day of sightseeing it was a pleasure to come home and cook a frozen meal in the microwave oven to wash down with a glass or two of the inexpensive but good quality wine from the local Lidl supermarket.

About the Host, Lynn
I like reading, walking, travelling, singing and playing guitar, interesting conversation, cinema and art. I love meeting new people so Airbnb is really good for me and I always get a buzz from people who arrive here as I still love London after all this time and I really like sharing experiences of where they can go, depending on what they like of course!
I've travelled through the Middle East, South America, Thailand, Spain and love having guests who want to get the best out of London - especially if it's their first time here.
I can speak a little Arabic, Spanish and French.
My motto in life - all you need is love :-)
