The host experience was excellent. I was greeted at the flat, handed a list that explained how things worked and walked through all the space, appliances, etc. the flat was all I hoped for. Excellent neighborhood...safe and convenient.
We lived in this flat as we were at home! Gary is a perfect host: he offered us drink and chocolate, and we appreciated it very much. In the flat we had all we needed: the beds are very comfortable (amazing orthopaedic mattress!), the kitchen is really well equipped (even if we didn't cook very often, because food in London is delicious and rather little expensive). We have been pleasently surprised by the calm of the street. At last, the decoration is great, warm and very british, and our children want the same now! Very next to Oxford Street (bus, tube, shops...). We wish to go back soon, thank you, Gary!
Gary was a very nice guy and very obliging. He met us at the apartment as arranged and explained how to use the heating and all appliances. He provided all detergents for dishwasher and washing machine as well as all essentials for the bathroom and the basics for breakfast. The apartment was as displayed very clean and comfortable. The location was great a few minutes walk to Oxford Circus and the underground. Plenty of Pubs nearby and some excellent restaurants.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this place. Gary is th ebest host and this apartment is perfect. Always my go to for London.
Very clean and passionate owner. Nice and quiet neighborhood and well maintained. Specially Gary is very friendly and well prepared. Feel like home.
Definitely a 5 star stay! Gary was a fantastic host: from being flexible when our flight was delayed to suggesting tours and just being fun to talk to. The flat is very nicely furnished and feels like home immediately. Gary provided some basics for breakfast and snacking and pointed us in the direction of the nearest grocer. Location is amazing - list of airbnbs.
I would love to welcome you to my great central located flat. Please email any questions you may have , Look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards, Gary
