It would be hard to find a better Air B&B experience. Melinda and Tony provided an extremely comfortable, large room, which is fitted out very nicely with quality furnishings and bedding. The room is lovely and bright with nice big windows which open onto the back garden. The TV and Wi Fi is fantastic. I appreciated the access to the most amazingly clean and well equipped kitchen and it's lovely to eat outside in the garden. The accommodation is spotless and so well thought out, with lots of little touches and special detail to make your stay comfortable. Everything as is in pictures. Access to London is very easy, with an 8 min walk across a park, then the train is 19-21 mins to London Victoria. I had a car, so it was much appreciated to be able to park right outside the house, with no charges or restrictions.
It would be very hard to find better hosts than Mel and Tony. They are both wonderful people and make you feel very comfortable and welcome immediately. It is refreshing to meet such happy, kind, relaxed people. I shared many great conversations and incredible meals. Mel's cooking is stunning. Thank you!
This was my first experience with Airbnb and it was brilliant. Mel and Tony were the perfect hosts - flexible, accommodating and answered any questions I had. They made me feel instantly welcome and I was always offered a cup of tea (or water!) when I returned home from work. Their hospitality meant I could focus on my new job without worry and the little touches made me feel very welcome - leaving the iron on and pancakes ready for me in the morning! They were happy to chat but also fine for me to be up in the bedroom or out for dinner with friends. I enjoyed talking about Italy with them and comparing our favourite musicals!
The bedroom itself was perfect and just like in the pictures. It was clean, had plenty of space to relax and near transport links to central London. I would highly recommend Mel and Tony as hosts :)
This was my first experience with Airbnb, and I couldn't have asked for a better one. Tony and Melinda are wonderful, warm, genuine, hospitable, and super interesting to hang out with! I must thank them for accommodating me at such short notice, and for helping me ease into the first week of my internship.
They made me feel incredibly welcome from the word go. And I always feel that its the little things that matter. Melinda was a delight and she would always ask me if I wanted a cup of tea, and would leave me yummy food on the kitchen counter - even to-go breakfast stuff in the morning since she knew I had to rush for work. Tony was always around to give me friendly practical advice about how to get around (the second day of my trip was a massive tube strike), or ask about my work and my day. They were so nice and welcoming, that I honestly felt like I was at a home away from home.
In terms of practical stuff, the room is just as shown in the pictures - well kept, big, airy, full of light! The room has a flat-screen TV and private tea/coffee making facilities, and you are provided with fresh towel, shampoo, and shower gel. The house is beautifully done and very clean and organised. There is a really nice garden at the back, and the room has a view of that. There is a modern kitchen with a fridge and coffee/tea maker that you are also free to use.
The neighbourhood is residential, and perfect if you are looking for some quiet while at the same time being connected to central London. It is a 10 minute walk to Norbury station across Norbury Park, and also to some nice shops like Lidl if you want to get groceries and cook for yourself.
You are free to come and go as you please, and the amount of interaction is all dependent on you. All in all I would highly highly recommend staying at Tony and Melinda's - and for spending some time getting to know your wonderful hosts. :)
Mel & Tony are the perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay with them. Ideally situated (10 mins walk across the park to the station) for easy access into London (Victoria or London Bridge). Norbury & Streatham also provide all the local shops and restaurants you'll need. If you're looking for comfortable accommodation with excellent facilities, look no further.
Mel and Tony were delightful hosts. Nothing was too much trouble,Tony came and picked me up from the station and I felt right at home. The room was exactly as described, the whole house was spotless and the wifi worked perfectly. The house is close to the railway station, a pleasant walk through a park. The bus stops right outside. All very convenient. The house is quiet, thanks to double glazing. I highly recommend this listing.
My stay with Tony and Melinda was nothing short of wonderful. I can't say enough good things about Tony and Melinda. They are very lovely, genuine, helpful and welcoming people. Melinda's cooking is fantastic. She puts on a lovely breakfast, and you will feel like you are dining out if you take advantage of Mel's dinners. Both the house and room are exceptional. The room is beautifully decorated, spacious and comfortable. The house is very well located for transport, with a bus stop across the road and no more than a 7 minute walk to the train station. Thank you Tony and Mel for your wonderful hospitality and making my stay so enjoyable.
I have spent almost 3 weeks at Melinda's place, and I am very satisfied with the experience. The house is in a quiet residential area, the room is very comfortable, spacious and clean. Melinda, Tony and Jamie were all very welcoming and helpful, made every effort to make my stay comfortable.
I would stay here again, and recommend this place to anyone!
