The Space

I have a small but charming cabin sized bedroom available with a large, comfortable double bed and french doors that open up to the garden patio, complete with palm trees!

A smart alternative to expensive hotels and B&B's.

Ideal if you're visiting London for short-stays and need an affordable, clean and friendly place to stay on a short term, day-to-day basis.

*Wireless Internet
*Bed linens
*Fresh towels
*Smoking allowed on patio
*Homemade bread, jams, tea & coffee are always at hand!

  • We had a great time staying at Cristo + Joe's. Both were very warm, friendly and hospitable. The place was spotless and the bed very comfy. My niece was very sad to leave and wants to return!

  • Cristo & Joe are wonderful people & their place is just lovely. This is why AirBnB is awesome & how it should be: warm & hospitable hosts, charming & spotless accommodation, great location & local knowledge, clear communications.

    I felt very much at home & at ease from the moment I stepped inside. The room looks just like the photos & the entire place is immaculate with fresh flowers throughout the house.

    It is close to the tube & overground, which makes getting into the City & Central London a breeze. There are restaurants, pubs, off licence convenient stores & supermarkets nearby but it's in a quiet residential neighbourhood.

    It's a great place to stay & you'll meet two of the friendliest, nicest people in London. I've stayed in various parts of London & I highly recommend it!

    L'accueil des hôtes est chaleureux.
    Le quartier est calme et sécurisant.

  • It was a amazing experience to stay With Joe. Such a friendly guy. The house was great. I will be going back the next time I go to Londen!

  • I had a very enjoyable weekend at the Cosy Cabin. It is small but pretty and spotlessly clean. The patio is an added bonus and the perfect place to sit out in the evening. Christo and Joe are very friendly and sociable and certainly made me feel welcome. The location close to the Tube Station is extremely handy and makes this is an ideal place to stay for anyone wishing to explore London.

  • Excellent accueil de la part de Joe et Cristo, toujours prêts à rendre service,à informer et à mettre à notre disposition les commodités de la maison (ce qui est très pratique pour le petit déjeûner, par exemple.)

  • This is the first time I used this site and it was a very good experience. I only stayed for 2 nights and spent most of my days out exploring London, but it was great to go back to Joe’s house at night. The flat is very close to the tube station, in a great location! Restaurants and shops nearby. The room is very tiny but spotless as the rest of the flat. I did not spend much time talking with Joe but he seemed to be very kind and willing to help. I definitely recommend his place and I would definitely stay there again if I happen to be in London.

  • This is the first time I used this site and it was a good experience. Joaquin's place is very clean, tidy and quiet. There are some restaurants near the house and the station is really near and it is easy to move around all the places. Joaquin helped us with some information and he is very kind. I definitely recommend his place.

  • House is very comfortable and tastefully furnished exactly as depicted. Cristo and Joe are friendly and warm hosts. Overall, an enjoyable stay close to the tube, near a range of good value restuarants. I’d definitely stay again and have no hesitation in recommending.

Born In Portugal and now living in London for the past 13 years. I'm a very easy going and quiet person but always a pleasure to have guests stay from all over the world. Big fan of gardening, wildlife and cooking, especially recipes I've picked up from my travels.
