Well situated, very close to Kilburn High Road (Overground - two stops to Euston) and Kilburn Park (Underground, Bakerloo Line) stations, this studio apartment has very convenient connections to the West End. Bus routes provide short journeys to Camden Town, Portabello Road, and most of north, west, and central London.
Very good restaurants in abundance, along with great pubs very near by. Close to three main supermarkets (M&S, Sainsbury's, & Tesco) and lots of small shops if you want to eat in.
The apartment is on the first floor (two flights of stairs.) It has central heating, washer-dryer, fridge-freezer, microwave, and gas cooker, but you'll probably want to eat out nearby. The bed is a very comfortable click-clack Futon, and there is real wood flooring. Stereo, TV / freeview / DVD, and Wifi. Free on-street parking at weekends, pay and display weekdays until 6.30pm. Non-smokers only. No pets. Best suited to couples or individuals.

Laurie's flat is excellently located, just a few minutes from the nearest Subway stop. The apartment is perfect for a couple and the futon is surprisingly comfortable! Definitely recommend this spot while staying in London!
Pasamos 3 noches en Londres. Laurie no estaba cuando llegamos pero dejó encargado a su vecino de recibirnos. La casa está muy bien equipada ( completamente, lavarropas, tostadora, calentador de agua, secador de pelo, tv, heladera, equipo de música, microondas con grill, servilletas y más) lo que permite que uno pueda vivir cómodamente. El vecindario se encuentra al final de la Zona 2 ( Kilburn, NO kilburn park ojo) no es muy lindo para caminar de noche pero no tuvimos problema. Hay muchos super (website hidden) llega con el overground naranja y queda a 1 cuadra y media. Durante la estadía detectamos un olor a gas y nos contactamos con Laurie quien inmediatamente llamo a la empresa y a los 30 minutos el ingeniero estaba en la casa para revisar el problema. Lamentablente no se pudo arreglar la avería hasta el día que nos fuimos. Laurie se preocupó en comprar una estufa eléctrica ( que ayudo mucho ) y nos dejó más mantas lo cuál aplacaba un poco la situación.
¡Afortunadamente Laurie propuso devolver una noche en concepto de resarcimiento lo cuál habla muy bien de el como anfitrión!
We really enjoyed the 5 nights we spent in Laurie's flat and found it to be very convenient. Easy access to buses and trains to take get to wherever you want to go in London and many shops nearby. The flat is exactly as described and has everything you need. Laurie was extremely helpful before and during our stay. We arrived in London at the start of a tube strike that we did not know about. However, this was no issue to us as Laurie emailed me and left a voice mail to let us know about alternative ways of getting to the flat without using the tube.
It was the first time me and my girlfriend used airbnb and it was a very positive experience. As we wished, we had a fully equiped flat at our disposal and could enjoy our stay in London without any problems.
The flat is great, it has all the necessary appliances and more (even unbrellas, etc.), neat and tidy, does not have the "worn out" feeling to it.
Laurie as a host was helpful, frendly, and quick to reply. Although we did not need to bother him during our stay as everything was fine, I am sure he would do a good job in helping us. The descriptions of places to visit near the flat was a helpful bonus.
The only bad thing to mention abotu this flat is that TV was shit, half of the channels did not load and the signal was bad all the time.
very nice host which give you a lot of advices
flat fully furnished and clean
well situated wih buses , metro and restaurants around
Laurie's place is fantastic. Laurie does Airbnb the way it was meant to be done; a nice flat kept in good condition with a very helpful host. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need for a short stay or even a month. There's even a fabulous washer/dryer which really comes in handy. Everything is very clean and well-maintained. Laurie is quite helpful and willing to go the extra mile for his guests. The area is full of great little restaurants (definitely try the Turkish and French places), there's a fabulous little bakery literally nect door. There are several grocery stores, coffee shops, supermarkets, and basically everything you could ask for.
We are so happy we decided to stay at Laurie's place. A great host, a very convenient area to stay in (a subway line nearby and 2 very efficient bus lines). If you're looking for a place to stay and don't want to pay a lot or risk getting a disappointing hotel, chose Laurie's place. You'll be glad you did.
Laurie was a great host, even if we had trouble getting in touch with due to our lack of phone he tried really hard to give us everything we would need for our two weeks stay. The flat is amazing and though the gas oven posed us a challenge at first, we had everything we needed on hand (except, for some reason, butter knives. But that's a small detail).
The bed is comfortable, the kitchen furnished enough for a short stay with even some pepper and vinegar on hand for our use, the bathroom is spacious, though it is Europe, which means small heat tank, so maybe don't do the dishes just before taking a shower like I did the first day, otherwise you'll be fine.
It's really sunny during the day and the view on the street is really nice while breakfasting.
It's so well situated, too: the overground is not three minutes away and brings us to Euston Station in under 5 minutes where we can take the underground and there are buses going everywhere on hand. There is a Tesco and a Sainsbury, as well as some pubs, restaurants, outlet stores and a Poundland all very near the flat on Kilburn High. On the other direction are a lot of calm street to stroll in.
I really fell in love with the place!
Laurie's flat is perfect - it is actually more spacious than what's shown in the photos. It is clean and everything is in the working condition. Communication with Laurie has been a breeze since the beginning and after the checkout, and Laurie even checked on us how we were doing while we were staying at his flat.
On the area: Kilburn Park is not a touristy area, which adds more to the appeal - there are always good food (Ekin Turkish restaurant is just right in front and if you are up for drinks, Priory Tavern is actually just a glance away from the window), Sainsbury's and the other stores are right in the high road about 2 min walk from the flat, Kilburn Park underground station about 5 min walk and getting to the Central London takes about 20 min tube ride. From someone who used to stay in Zone 6 before, it has been very pleasant :) Looking forward to return!
Nice appartment, really easy to get into london with lots if info on stuff to do. Would definitely recommend
Excelente experiencia en el departamento de Laurie! Nos alojamos mi marido y yo entre el 3/12 y el 11/12, días frios pero muy bien calefaccionado. Cocina amplia y con todo lo necesario para un viaje de vacaciones e incluso vivir, tenía lava-secadora! Baño amplio con bañera y mucho lugar donde poner las cosas. La cama es un futón abierto y de hecho muy cómodo, faltarían unas cortinas black out pero es solo un detalle, comercios muy cerca y de todo tipo, zona muy segura, a unas 3 cuadras de un metro y a una cuadra del overgtound que te lleva a euston, la estación de (website hidden) nos falto nada durante nuestra estadía y Laurie nos enviaba mails para saber como estabamos. Volveremos!!
Thank you very much Laurie!
