We have a great pub with good food actually in our street and are within walking distance of many good restaurants, take aways, cinemas and of course CHELSEA football ground. .We are also between 2 and 12 minutes walk from some really nice pubs where you can sit outside and have a drink overlooking the river among the locals
Our area is international but not touristy it is very much a place where Londoners live, all nationalities mixed up together.

2nd stay at Annabella's..... fantastic! She is a wonderful host. Very confortable bed, spotless bathroom. Loved having breakfast in her beautiful garden. Cannot wait for my next trip to London!
C'était notre première visite à Londres et notre première expérience avec airbnb .Nous avons été bien accueillis par Annabella qui est venue nous chercher à la sortie du métro et cela était très appréciable, même si le métro se trouve à une quinzaine de mn à pied.
Maison conforme aux photos. Quartier tranquille , Annabella et James sont très sympas, nous étions comme chez nous.
Commerce et restaurant à proximité, nous conseillons le Boma l'un des patrons parle Français .
Si nous revenons à Londres nous n'hésiterons pas à retourner chez Annabella et James.
We stayed with Annabella and her family for two nights. We had a lovely stay. They are a very kind, helpful & generous hosts. They are always on hand to answer any question and give good tips. We had our two young children with us and they were especially pleased with having lots of wonderful books to read…this was a lovely bonus! Thanks Annabella!! The family have a lovely home with lots of character in a very convenient location. We will definitely be back to stay with them in the future!
Ha sido un placer compartir la casa de Anabella y James, nos sentimos como en nuestra propia casa desde el primer momento. Fueron muy amables y atentos. Las camas muy cómodas y las habitaciones amplias. La casa típicamente inglesa. Los desayunos muy ricos.
I had a wonderful stay with Annabella and her family.
They were very warm and welcoming. And very helpful with suggestions and answering my many questions. She picked me up at the tube station and dropped me off at my next destination. Such a big help when one has a heavy suitcase !
The room is large and the bed is very comfortable.
The neighbourhood in Fulham is very convenient. Shops and buses are only a short walk away.
Annabella was a welcoming host, and while Fulham is about 30-40 minutes by Tube to the central attractions, there is a Tube station a 15 min. walk away and the walk is quite safe at night. It was a bit cold the first night, but Annabella and her husband provided extra duvets and turned up the heat the next night. The kitchen and garden are cozy spots, and the room and washroom are well kept. Annabella's husband was also kind enough to drop us off at the Tube station when we left. Thank you!
Our stay in the house of Anabella was more than good. We were surprised that Anabella picked us up at the metro station and showed us immediately her neighbourhood. Fullham is nicely situated, not too far from central London. We had a conference at the London Science museum which was just 15 minutes by bus. The house was nice, the beds good. We will certainly use the service of Anabella and her kind husband again.
