About this listing
IF THIS ROOM IS FULL CHECK OUR OTHER LISTING UNDER "SUPERFAMILYHOME". BOOK EARLY TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT!!
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 and bus stops.
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 normally has a single bed but we can move the furniture around and put out a second bed if required for double occupancy. This second bed would be a folding bed. One advantage of the folding bed is that it can be folded when not in use to give more space. The measurements of this second bed are: 180cm long, 80cm wide and 38cm high.
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 REQUESTS WHICH ARE ACCOMPANIED BY PROFILE AND PHOTO. WE ALSO REQUIRE A MINIMUM OF 3 VERIFICATIONS INCLUDING OFFLINE ID. The photo should be a clear photo of all guests and not a photo of a cuddly toy or pretty landscape!
1)We have recently refurbished our shower room to high standards. We have re-tiled, fitted new lighting, a new shower enclosure, new toilet, new vanity unit (washbasin and cupboard) and new illuminated, sensor operated, mirrored cabinet.
2)A new Tesco Express has recently opened just 2 minutes walk from here. Tesco is the UK's largest supermarket chain and the Express stores are their smaller stores where you should be able to find your basic food needs.

Phil is a great host. Was inviting, and clearly explained the house upon arrival. I had to change my time of arrival a few times and Phil was very understanding.
Place is steps away from tube. Super convenient.
Enjoyed my stay with Phil and family, Phil is a great host who is friendly and easy to have a chat with. The home and bedroom are clean and comfortable. The local area is good with a tube st on the doorstep along with a number of shops and resturants. If your staying in the area I would definately recommend.
A great find!
We picked this place because of it's location mainly. We needed to have somewhere to leave cars and be able to drive into London for work purposes. It worked wonderfully and Phil was helpful answering questions on parking etc before we arrived.
We had 2 beds in the room and it was still an ok size, I was worried it would be cramped & small based on some of the reviews. We had a wardrobe, draws, mirror, lamp, desk. Phil cleverly arranged an extension cable so we could charge things no problem. Plus the wifi worked well, so we could work or stream a video in the evenings.
We didn't see much of the hosts, but then we were out working a lot! Phil was around to welcome (my friend arrived first) and we saw him a couple of times. He is very friendly and helpful we couldn't have asked for more. We saw more of the dog, Jojo, who is very sweet!
Overall it was a basic room with shared bathroom. If you want a plane & simple place to stay close to the tube then this will be a good option. Shower is great!
The only downsides was the bed was a bit hard, and the level of cleanliness isn't the same as a hotel, however, no more than a normal lived in home!
If we end up in that area again in need of room we both agreed we would go back. Thanks Phil :D
LovelyFamilyHome is very (website hidden) daughter and I were very satisfied with MR Phil .The house is very comfortable and clean. We felt wonderful just in our home.
에어비엔비 바우처가 있어서 혼자 예약해도 괜찮은 가격이었어요. 하루 3만원 정도냈습니다. 바우처없으면 4만원정도? 여행 두 분이서 같이 하는 분들이 2인으로 예약하면 가격이 괜찮을듯해요. 가정집이라 깨끗하고 안전하다는 큰 장점이 있어요. 주인아저씨도 매우 친절하시고, 종종 차도 내어와주십니다. 집 뒤에는 작은 정원이 있는데 예쁘고 뭔가 되게 평화로운 느낌이 드는 집입니다. 조용하구요. 지하철역이 진짜 가까워서 (1분거리) 금방 주요관광지있는쪽으로 가긴하는데 5존이라 교통비랑 이동시간 따져보셔야해요. 저는 오래머무르고 여유롭게 여행해서 괜찮았는데 짧게 머무실분들이면 이동시간이 조금 아까울듯해요. 게스트나가자마자 이불베개시트 다 수거하셔서 세탁하시고 햇볕에 뽀송뽀송 말리시더라구요^^ 화장실도 매일매일 게스트들 나가면 정리하시는듯해요. 엄청 깔끔하신 성격인듯합니다. 샤워실 사용하고나서 꼭 뒷정리해달라고 하시더라구요. 차 한잔하면서 아저씨랑 이런저런 이야기 많이 나누었네요ㅎㅎ이야기하는 거 좋아하시는 듯합니다. 이동시간이랑 교통 꼭 생각해보시고 결정하세요! 참고로 저는 일주일 트레블카드(2-5존) 구입후에, 지하철로 2존까지 이동하고 1존 이동시에는 버스탔습니다. 저는 집 위치뺴고 모든 것이 좋았습니다~ 좋은 경험이었어요~
Das Haus liegt sehr gut gelegen in unmittelbarer Nähe einer U-Bahn Station. Unser Zimmer war klein aber ausreichend für zwei Personen. Phil war sehr freundlich und immer bereit für eine Konversation. Für uns war die Unterkunft praktisch, da wir mit dem Auto angereist sind, und das Auto bei Phil abstellen konnten.
As the other guests said it was a lovely house with the comfortable room which was always clean. The host Phil who was a good person and very kind to me ,let you feel at home . Sometimes you can talk with him when you have problems,he will happy to help you~~ Bty, just take 1 min to get tube,very very convenient and also transport. If you want to stay in a quiet place , absolutely here!

About the Host, Phil And Aquilla
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 ( in my younger days!), 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!!
