Queens Park, Zone 2, West London
Our house is a 2 bedroom flat built in 1896 (Victorian). It has the original floorboards throughout and is tastefully decorated. Its a warm house, with central heating and rugs throughout. In our lounge we have all mod cons (cable TV, free wireless internet access etc), and a good sized kitchen with large kitchen table on which you can plan your days over fresh coffee!
Once you have discovered London, come home to our garden retreat. We have a good sized, private garden, which captures all day sun. When the sun goes down, light the BBQ if you like to eat outside!
We have 2 bedrooms. 1 room is a double, with a double bed. The second room is a single room which has a bunk bed (this is 2 x single beds on top of each other). The bunk bed is OK for 2 adults. The house therefore is good for 4 people.
THE LOCATION (QUEENS PARK)
Queens Park is central and convenient for exploring the best of London (parks, galleries, shops, gastro pubs and theatres!). We are located 5 minutes walk from Queens Park tube station, and its a 15 minute tube trip from Queens Park to Oxford Circus.
In addition to this, we are 10 minutes walk from Kensal Rise Overland station, which takes you directly to Richmond, Hampstead and Camden. There are also direct buses from our door to Marble Arch (15 minutes), Portabello (15 minutes) and Notting Hill (20 minutes).
More importantly, we are well served by some of London's finest pubs. In 10 minutes you can be enjoying a pint in "The Paradise", "The Regent", "The Salisbury" or "The Chamberlayne" - all of which are 5* pubs and must be visited. (website hidden) them for reviews, each has its own ambience - and all have great restaurants.
Besides being central, and well connected - Queens Park itself also provides a pleasant retreat from the hustle of the city.
We don't smoke, and therefore ask that there be no smoking inside (although we have a private garden, and you are welcome to smoke outside).
Only those guests associated with the booking are permitted to stay.
We stayed in the apartment to visit London 2012 Olympics and were very pleased with the accomodations. It worked very well for family of 4. Location is very convinient ,close to tube and overground train, and we were able to reach all destinations quickly. Hosts are very friendly , provided us with a lot of information in advance and accomodated our special requests. Overall , this apartment provides everything you would need for the stay and is very much recommended.
Thank you Matt and Slavka ! We had a great time in London that we would remember for many years to come !
My husband, daughter and myself spent 2 weeks in Matthew's home. Upon arrival we met Matthew and his wife. Their enthusiam and passion for London was totally infectious. We received such a warm welcome and Matthew was really laid back and easy about everything.
The home is very central and it was extremelly easy getting around. Some fanstastic pubs nearby. Matthew, we really loved 'Paradise'!
Home had everything we needed and was a great place to come back to each day.
