The advantages of renting a room in our place :
1)Reasonable rent. Why pay more, possibly much more, for a room in Central London when you can hop on the tube, a minute away, which takes you into the heart of London?
2)Spacious and comfortable accomodation.
3) Safe, friendly family ambience
4)A beautiful garden where you can sit and chill out!
5)Very convenient for travel especially for getting into Central London...with the tube station just a minute's walk away!
6)Very convenient for amenities: the park, restaurants, shops just a minute away!
7)Off street parking if space available (please note cars are parked on the property at guests' own risk!).

Phil and his family are great hosts. The room was great.
My friend and I had a lovely time while staying there.
Phil and Aquilla allways made sure that we've got everything we need. they were very welcoming and pleasent.
We practically felt at home.
Thank you very much!
Aquilla, Phil and their family were a real joy to be with. Had such great conversations with both. They are both warm, welcoming, I am so looking forward to staying with them again. A wonderful family. I thank you both for making me so extremely welcome. I will keep in touch with you all. I am missing you already.
Phil was a great host, friendly and (email hidden)e location worked well for us because we didn't have to drive into the heart of London, could park for free and were very close to the tube. Glad we chose this place.
Edgeware is good to reach by car at M 25. The house of Phil and Aquilla is at the mainstreet, easy to find. And yes, the Tube is only 1 minute to walk (Canons Park). If you arrive with car, you can park in front of the house, no extra fee!
Phil and Aquilla were very friendly, showed us the house and how all works. We got place in the fridge and the kitchen for our goods. The rooms have been clean. We took two rooms. One was big and window to the garden and the field, the other was big enough for me and had window to the street. In the night, it is quiet, when the window is closed. We could use the Internet (WLAN). In the living-room you can use a big flat-tv. There is a second tv in a TV-room. We could use the kitchens interieur. The bathroom was clean, you can take a shower in a small cabin. The daughters of the family are friendly and nice and kept back respectful. We were allowed to use the garden, we will do the next time.
In Edgeware you got all what you want. We needed adaptor, Phil told us where to get and we got.
The tube is driving between Stanmore and Stradford. Wembley-stadium is near. To London-City you drive 20 minutes.
For our next visit to London, we hope we can book again!
Great room with lovely view of park, nice area, superb links for transport - literally 30 seconds from the property.
I was working long hours so never seen Phil much but a very nice man from when I met him.

I am a retired teacher. My wife, Aquilla,who is originally from the Philippines, works at at a local hospital and we have two teenage daughters. We lived abroad, in the Far East, for several years and we now live here in our lovely spacious family home in Edgware, North West London.
My father was a career diplomat so I travelled extensively as a child and have travelled widely since then.
Other interests include sport (a participant in my younger days but now a spectator!) cooking and gardening....and, of course, hosting.
We hope to hear from you if you require a comfortable, spacious, welcoming and friendly base in London...especially convenient for getting into Central London!!
