My name is Helen, I live in London. I work for a small charity and love to travel, read, find new places, spend time with friends and meet new ones...
Sehr nette Gastgeber, Helen und Tom, hat echt Spaß gemacht die Tage in London bei Ihnen verbracht zu haben...Schöne, angenehme Wohnung mit breitem Doppelbett, großzügiger Küche und allem was man braucht - Badewanne mit Dusche, WC und 2 min zur Subway und zum Bus...
The double room is big and very comfortable. I loved the possibility of seeing the sky and trees around while I was lying on the bed.
There is also a desk that it's not in the pictures.
The house is as nice as it looks like and full of wonderful photos. Decoration is also lovely and they mix some African designs with the map of the cheeses from UK, for example, what it's quite cool.
We didn't meet them till the third day as our tourist plans didn't match with their schedules (a pity as I would have loved to know more about the photographies) but they are very kind and charming.
Definitely a place to go back.
A lovely cottage with all you need for a self catering holiday or break. Beautiful location very peaceful and well positoned to Explore the surrounding attractions. We only stayed for two nights and wish we had more time at Chenies!
Helen was a fantastic host! We had some last minute changes to our arrival times and she was very flexible with it all, allowing us to arrive 3 hours earlier than arranged with just a couple of hours notice! The room was everything we imagined it would be, and the location made getting around very simple as it is literally less than a minute from the tube.
Helen went out of her way to help us during our stay - I mentioned we wanted to find a chemist to buy some insect bite cream from a spider bite in Paris, and instead she leant me a cream that she already had in her medicine cabinet.
We could use the kitchen and store things in the fridge which was such a help after so long travelling! Likewise, the washing machine was available for us to use, and Helen gave us some of her washing powder so we didn't have to purchase any.
There are a few flights of stairs to climb up with luggage which may be an issue for some people, but we had no trouble at all lifting our large suitcases up and down, and Helen insisted that she help which was appreciated!
Would definitely stay with Helen again if in London! She was just so helpful and lovely, and her place was great!
This was the second time we have stayed with Helen and once again it was a very easy and relaxed experience. Helen responded to our emails straight away and left us instructions of how to let ourselves into the house whilst she was out at work which was much appreciated. There was also a lovely welcome message waiting for us which was nice. The room is spacious and bright and there were fresh towels for us to use. The house is 2 minutes away from Tufnell Park tube station but there are also plenty of buses nearby which run regularly. I would definitely recommend staying with Helen to anyone wanting to come to London.
We had a great holiday at the cottage, which is located on a nice spot near the sea side and close to a pub/restaurant. Good communication with Helen before and during the stay. Maybe worth to mention that you need to bring your own sheets and towels. Recommended!
So pleased you had a good stay! I did mention about the bed linen and towels in the email I sent you about 10 days before your arrival but we will make sure we add it to the Airbnb listing in case it's a deal breaker for people before booking. :-)
지도에서 보곤 런던 중심에서 멀줄 알았는데 집바로 앞에 역있어서 편하구 생각보다 가깝더라구요~ 호스트도 너무 친절하고 좋았습니다' 방도 깨끗하구 매우 마음에 들었었던 숙소네요 ㅎㅎ
Tom and Helen were both very inviting and their place was lovely. They were helpful with check in, extra information for things to do, and provided us with towels, tube map, umbrellas and hairdryer when I couldn't use mine due to voltage conversion issues.
The room was as described, perfect for a couple and came with a private sink which was very convenient. Keep in mind that the room and shower/bath is on the third floor and toilet/kitchen/living room is on the 2nd floor (stairs only), which was fine for us but can be a problem for some.
The house was in a convenient location - 2 mins from tube station and surrounded by grocery stores and various eateries/cafes.
Overall, we would recommend to others if travelling to London. Thanks Tom and Helen for having us! :)
Very convenient location in London, and lovely area. Hosts very friendly and warm. They went away for a few days so we had the place to ourselves which was awesome.
The Host Helen was so helpful with all the information that we needed. Our stay in the cottage was so lovely. The cottage was perfect, absolutely adorable. We had everything we needed. Definitely going back.
Helen and Tom are very polite guests. They left the apartment in perfect condition. They are great travelers. I wonder where their next trip will take them? If it is to your place, you're in luck.
My on site supervisor advised that Helen is a perfect guest and that she appeared to enjoy the time at Palm View with no problems. I would like to welcome her back one day when I am present.
Helen and Tom, you have been the best guests ever!! thank you so much for your smiles , your good energy and for sharing your experiences with us even if for a very short period , it was really nice to meet you! wish you an amazing trip around Africa! please do come back !! otherwise we will come to London with the family!! :)
"What if you gave some one a gift and they neglected to thank you for it! Would you be likely to give them another? Life is the same way! In order to attract more of the that life has to offer, you must truly appreciate what you already have! Hahahaha thanks" HELEN! YOU VISITING TO OUR LOVELY HOME! TANZANIA GREEN HOME'S AND CAMP'S IS A GRT GIFT TO US WE LOVE TO SAY WELCOME AGAIN! HELEN
Helen and Tom are great couple. They are polite and kind always. They kept the place clean and tidy. We has nice moment to chat. Hope we can host them again in their 6 months journey.
All good - tidy guests. No complaints from us!
Perfect guests, everything was ok.
A perfect host! Unfortunately I met Helen in person but I can say that was perfect in everything! Maximum cleaning, easy communication! recommended as a guest
Tom (helen's husband) was a really nice person, and it was a pleasure for us to receive him.
He's respectful and a funny guy in the same time =)
Helen and Tom are very nice, quiet and respectful houseguests, leaving behind my apartment very tidy and clean. Our communication was very smooth and they were very flexible with the check-in time. They even gave me a good recomendation for a pub near my place that I even didn't know :)
