Interaction with Guests
I live in the house but do work full time - leave in the morning around 9 and get home at a similar time. Open to chatting and happy to help with any planning of visits etc.,
There is loads of public transport - Buses go to Richmond, Kew Gardens and other great attractions while the Underground heads into Central London and out to Heathrow.
Under no circumstances will smoking be tolerated on the property at any time.
Linda was always kind. Her house location is very good.And her pets were cute and friendly. If my friends search for London BNB i recommend her house
Linda's house is so beautiful. I spent a lot of time at her house than the center of the city :) She and her house mates are friendly. It is easy to understand about the rules of stay because she gives some paper for explanation and they are glad to offer any information for your trip. The access is also convenient for me. If you want to experience the ordinary atmosphere of the city, I recommend to stay there.
The room and experience was just as described. The flexibility of coming in anytime on the date of check in was great and Linda is extremely friendly and was sweet enough to leave chocolates wafers as a welcome.
The room is clean and the photos do justice to the description. If it is your first time in London and if you have heavy baggage please ask Linda for suggestion on the easiest way to reach the residence.
The highlight is/are of course all the loving animals in the house. Goodbyes are hard.
A casa de Linda é ótima, o quarto é confortável, pode usar o frigobar e o armario para guardar alimentos que compramos. Linda fornece café da manhã. É perto da estação de metro e de lá são poucos minutos para estar no centro de Londres. Além disso, Linda ajudou com dicas, de o que fazer, onde não ir nos fins de semana por estar lotado, onde deve ser reservado ingresso com antecedencia por se esgotar rapido, etc. A cadela Tammy é tranquila, como qualquer cachorro algumas vezes late quando chegamos em casa mas nada que (website hidden) proxima vez que for em Londres ficarei na casa de Linda novamente. Não precisa ficar comprando garrafa de agua também, isso é outra vatagem.
Linda was an awesome host. The room was exactly as described. She gave us space when we wanted but was also eager to provide any advice on things to do. Would definitely stay here again!
Linda's home just a short walk from the Picadilly line was perfect for getting to/from both the airport and central London. She was not at home when we arrived, but getting in on our own was a breeze with her instructions, and she was quick to make sure we had everything we needed. Linda also provides breakfast basics like cereal & milk, as well as space in the kitchen to store your own groceries. Comfortable bed and plenty of room -- all we needed for a few days!
Linda's home is well located in a quiet location with about a ten minute walk to two tube stations on the Piccadilly line giving easy access to both London and Heathrow. Nearby are also shops, and pubs and restaurants offering good meals. The upstairs room was comfortable and well furnished. Use of the kitchen diner was convenient and Linda kindly provided some breakfast staples which was a bonus. Linda is a busy lady, but still had time to chat with us and offer suggestions. We enjoyed her company and that of her menagerie; especially Tammy the labrador. If I had known that there were two boarders in the house, I probably would not have booked it, but in reality it was not a problem and added a family feel to the home.
