Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My boyfriend and I stayed with Teresa (our first time using Airbnb) and had a perfect experience. Her flat is absolutely darling- great for couples or singles. From her warm greeting onward, we always felt totally at home there. Her flat is situated in a lovely, peaceful neighborhood outside of London's bustling center. The train station is just a short distance away, and she gives plenty of advice on how to best use the tube to get where you want to go. Be sure to climb to the big oak in Honor Oak for a wonderful view of the city, just a short walk away from the flat. Overall, we felt completely at ease and safe with Teresa and loved returning to her calm neighborhood after a busy day in the city. She (email hidden) who gives great suggestions on where to go and what to do but also gives you plenty of space to enjoy your getaway. We would stay with her again in a heartbeat!

  • Teresa is by far one of the best hosts I've stayed with (and I've stayed with many)! She's friendly, helpful and quick to provide recommendations on where to go and how to get around London. The room is true to the pictures provided and is kept clean and neat. The bed is very comfortable and the bathroom is spacious. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights stay at Teresa's place and will not hesitate to stay there again the next time we visit London!

  • I had amazing and most comfortable stay at Teresa's. Teresa was a happy, kind, giving and helpful lady and nice to live with. The flat was super cute being decorated with great taste of interior. The stay at Teresa's made my trip so special and unforgettable. When I was not feeling well, she cared and gave me medicine. She kindly accepted for me to use washing machine before I depart to next destination. I strongly recommend Teresa if you look for accommodation in London. The house is only 15 mins away from London bridge and easy to access to everywhere yet nice to be away from city noise in quiet suburb area. Next time I'll definitely book for Teresa again!

  • Teresa was amazing! She's super friendly and has a wealth of information to share. It's clear she loves living in London and wants her visitors to share that love. It's hard not to be enthusiastic around her. Her flat is located in a very nice neighbourhood and is easily reached via the London Overground train system. The room was very comfortable. Teresa even provides breakfast for her guests (tea, coffee, bread for toast, as well as jams and other spreads)!

  • es war alles zur vollsten Zufriedenheit. Teresa war eine sehr nette, hilfsbereite und tolle Gastgeberin. Sie hat uns mit Rat und Tat zur Seite gestanden. Die Nachbarschaft sah sehr nett und vertrauensvoll aus und die Wege zur Bushaltestelle und zur Zugstation waren in 10 Minuten erreicht.Wir würden jederzeit wieder bei Teresa buchen.

  • Happy we chose Teresa to stay with for our 5 night London holiday. Teresa made us feel very welcome and relaxed in her home. All the sightseeing and transport info was great - the Indian restaurant Teresa recomends (a 2 minute walk away) is superb. Thanks Teresa! Hope to see you in New Zealand one day.

  • Had a wonderful stay at Teresa's fabulous flat. She was away for the first couple of days but trusted us with access to the flat. Her instructions were clear as to transport from the airport and access. Her suggestions for restaurants and daily activities were great. We had a wonderful stay and had lots of stories to tell when she returned from her weekend away. Her house in in a lovely area surrounded by good restaurants and easy access to public transport. Thanks so much!

  • Teresa was a very enthusiastic host, extremely friendly and warm. Her knowledge of the rail system was invaluable, and places to visit, especially Greenwich Village, loved it. The neighbourhood felt safe, with plenty of eating places within walking distance, train station only a 5 minute walk away, with trains running very frequently.
    The room was clean and cosy, the flat very homely. We would certainly stay with Teresa again and highly recommend her. Thank you Teresa for letting us stay in your home.

    Love ...... Maureen & Mick
