4)A beautiful garden where you can sit and chill out!

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.

Another Pleasant stay with Phil and Aquilla. As always, very welcoming, sufficient amenities and a pleasure to stay with. I'm sure I’ll be back again.
Stayed another night at Phil & Aquilla's, as usual a warm and friendly welcome. The room clean and tidy and sufficiant to my needs. As always highly recommended.
The room and facilities were very good and the host very friendly and chatty.
I stayed two nights with my friend at Phil's house. It was my first expierence with airbnb and I was very Happy ! Phil was very nice and great welcoming host.
When we had problems, he helped us every time. Also he drove us to a train Station to make it easier for us.
The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable.

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!!
