Thanks for taking the time to read this!!
Debbie was great and easy to communicate with. She provided great recommendations in the neighborhood and tips for how to get around town and to the airports.
The flat had absolutely everything you could need for your stay and was conveniently located near several transit lines. I would definitely stay here again.
Great location, quite neighborhood... Very Safe and comforatable beds...Great place to stay!
Debbie gave us very clear instruction and the place was clean and spacious. We had a great time there! I will recommend my friends if they visit London next time!
The communication with Debbie was very easy and every description totaly clear. The board on the door and the booklet in the kitchen were helpful too and a bottle of red wine was already waiting. :-)
The flat was spacious for us 3 people, comfortable and very well equipped. The location is great as well. Tube, supermarket, a good pub and other restaurants are close by.
Overall we had a phantastic time in London and we would like to come back and stay in Debbbies apartment again.
The apartment is very easy to find. And is very close to the tub. I was very pleased with how easy it is to commute to all major sites. Nothing is too far away. The apprtment was a good size. Our room was comfortable. But the bed in the other room was a little on the firm side. Given the price I was pleased.
Clear and consise description. Flat was easy to find. As described in other comments we a bottle of red wine was already waiting.

About the Host, Debbie
I am a property renovator and design enthusiastic who loves taking unloved homes and making them look and feel beautiful!
I live with my husband Tim in East London and in my free time I like rummaging round markets and junk shops, eating tasty food with my friends and cycling in the sunshine.
We are both huge travel addicts and recently returned from an extended trip around the world where we were lucky enough to visit some amazing places and make some great friends along the way!
Now I am looking forward to meeting more new people and letting them discover what I love about London!
