This summer we have very limited availability (please refer to calendar) so if you're considering our place please get in touch early!
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 accommodation.
3) Safe, friendly family ambience.
4)A beautiful garden where you can sit and chill out!
5)Very convenient for travel.
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!).
8)We have a long list of satisfied guests...read the reviews!
A bit more:
There is satellite tv (46inch flat screen), Wifi, washing machine, dryer, kitchen, garden etc.
The house itself is spacious and comfortable. Guests have use of the communal facilities: lounge, diner, kitchen, tv room. There are two bathrooms (one with shower, one with bath and shower) as well as downstairs cloakroom.
We also have a beautiful garden which has a range of shrubs and trees, a lawn and tables to sit at and eat outdoors if you should so wish (weather permitting!).
As mentioned, we are particularly well placed for public transport. We are just one minute from the tube (subway) station.
The centre of Edgware is nearby with its shopping centre and other amenities.
We are opposite Canons Park, a beautiful park where you can enjoy the walks and the scenic views. The Memorial Garden within the park is particularly worth a visit.
A key is provided for your room for additional peace of mind as well as for the front door so you can come and go as you wish.
This room has a single bed but we can move the furniture around and put out a second bed if required for double occupancy.
There is an additional charge of £10 per night for a second person.
We can, if required, provide meals as an optional extra (English breakfast £5, light breakfast £3, other meals £7) but otherwise we are happy to provide tea, coffee, etc at no charge.
Guests also have free use of washing machine and dryer (including soap powder) once a week. To avoid excessive use of this facility there is a charge of £5 per additional wash.
Please note that this is a family home and we are looking for guests who are comfortable in family surroundings.
Please also note that WE CAN ONLY CONSIDER BOOKING APPLICATIONS WHEN ACCOMPANIED BY PROFILE AND PHOTO.

L'accueil fut gentil par M.Phil. Ma chambre était propre et avec des commodités confortables:pupitre, étagères, armoires et tapis confortable. Le underground très pratique car a 3 minutes a pieds. Centre d'achat très proche et restaurants. Merci de m'avoir accueillie. Johanne
Phil was very welcoming and the private room was as it appeared on airbnb. It was clean and very close to bus and subway station. I felt very luck to find a reasonable priced private room like this one in Phil and Aquilla's home.
My stay with Phil & his family was just superb!
Before I made the booking, Phil was very helpful giving me advice on how to go to the airport from his place.
The room was exactly as the pictures depicted - clean, spacious & tidy. It's really easy to go to town as the tube station's only 1 min away. That's a real plus ;)
Phil himself is such a warm & friendly host. The family was all warmly welcoming. Even their dog Jojo welcomed me ;)
Look forward staying with them again!
There's probably just one thing I need to say: Next time I'm in London, I would definitely like to stay at the Phil and Aquilla's house again. Phil was a great host, the room was clean and had everything I needed and the location of their house so close to the tube is perfect. Thanks for the nice stay!
My cousin and I have a great time in Phil and Aquilla's house.
Phil and Jojo (the dog) welcomed us with a cup of tea and some cookies.
He and his wife made everything comfortable to make us feel like our home. They are very friendly.
Bedrooms: Beds are comfortables and clean.
Underground: The house is on the Jubilee line and only 1 mn walk of the subway station.
Thank you for your hospitality.
Take care :)
It was very nice to stay at Phil's house. The location was very convenient, only a block away from the tube. It was quite easy to reach the centre of London, not more than 30 min. The room has everything you need, the bathroom is clean. Phil is a very hospitable owner. It was nice to talk with him. Good value for money. Thanks a lot!
Phil was a real gentleman. He was very kind for me when I arrived at his house so late. And the room was very clean and comfortable for me. I loved his dog which was so cute. His house is so close to a subway station, so I could find his house easily and felt safe even in the midnight.

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!!
