If you'd like to stay with a host who is friendly to share her experience and open her door, please choose Antonia. She taught me to cook pancake, showed me her handcraft, and introduced her family to me——six sooooo cute dogs! She is a right Airbnb host I was looking for. easygoing, smart, and sweet. Miss you.
Antonia was very welcoming and accommodating. We were greeted with a pot of tea and great conversation! Antonia was informative about the area and how to use public transit. The apartment was comfortable and felt like "home" with a beautiful view of the park and gardens. The area and apartment were quiet which made for easy sleeping. Antonia is a wonderful hostess and I highly recommend staying with her in this lovely apartment. We plan to go back!
Très bon accueil, très bons conseils sur les adresses et les sites à visiter. Chambre et literie tout confort. Très propre. Super breakfast. Le quartier est très agréable, et bien situé pour se rendre rapidement sur différents sites touristique. Antonia se soucie de trouver les meilleures réponses et conseils à vos différentes questions et envies. Bel échange et bonne adresse.
Antonia is a really friendly person, we came a bit late, no problem for her and the tea was ready! She help us with all our demandes (even print musical tickets out - thanks again!). Brought us to the tubes, with a lot sightseeing material - just great.
The breakfast - buah - soo good!
안토니아 엄청 친절하고 아침도 챙겨줍니다. 집이 넓지는 않지만 아늑하며 거실있고 주인방, 게스트방 두개, 부엌, 화장실 구조입니다. 키우는 강아지도 순해서 친구집에 온듯한 느낌입니다. 신발을 벗고 다니기때문에 슬리퍼를 준비해서 가면 더 좋을것 같습니다. 바닥은 카페트와 나무판 섞여있습니다. 화장실은 공용이나 깨끗하며 크게 불편하지않습니다. 집 위치는 지하철역과 가깝고, 바로 옆에 공원이 있습니다.
전체적으로 만족한 숙박이었습니다!
We stayed five nights in Antonia's apartment and had a really great time in London. Antonia is very nice and friendly and has a lot of good tips and helpful information for your stay. The room was clean and tidy and the breakfast was fine (ask for her pancakes or the omelette!) She has a very cute dog named Biba (who had some lovely tiny puppys at the time of our stay). We can definitely recommend staying at Antonia's.
Antonia was a great host! I enjoyed living at her apartment. It was like bunking in with a friend. She was very friendly and advised us on where to go and even where to eat! Places that me and my boyfriend would have never been if it weren't for her. Her apartment is conveniently located being 4 minutes away from the tube. On our first day, she walked with us to London Bridge so that we got our bearings right. We didn't even realise how close we were to all attractions until she took the liberty to show us! Her dog was like icing on top of the cake. A very lovely and friendly dog that you just want to hug to bits! I am coming back in November for a cousin's wedding and I am definitely going back again! I recommend anyone who wants a truly unique and homely experience to go for Antonia's apartment

Experiences to cherish
Barcelona Spain - drinking sherry eating slithers of cured wild boar eating off barrels in a tiny hole in the wall with fisher men sipping cava 5pm midweek.
skiing in Zermatt with my boyfriend and coming across a sledge being pulled by couple huskies followed by their frolicking puppies on a wonderful clear sunny out for an afternoon.
Climbing a mountain in the dark to see the volcanos on Stromboli Italy.
getting lost in George Town Washington looking at doors.
diving for sea urchins off a surfboard with a plastic bag of lemons with some friends in Greece, that was a great lunch.
I am a happy relaxed person who lives for good conversation, beautiful surroundings and creative inspirations.
