We were visiting friends who live in Barnes and location of Julia's flat was perfect for us! Julia was a lovely host and we had really good time at her place. We recommed Julia's place to anybody and would be happy to stay there again if going to Barnes. Thanks Julia!!
We managed to book the room just two days beforehand, so rather last minute, and were pleased with the accommodation. Julia was very welcoming and immediately showed us around her smart, clean apartment with a generous sized bedroom and bathroom opposite, plus the large lounge/dining area. She told us to help ourselves to tea, coffee, cereal etc for breakfast.
We were very pleased it was so close to our daughters' house just two minutes walk away. Even closer are two good pubs with restaurants: The Brown Dog and The Idle Hour. Barnes is a pretty area with a range of shops and Julia's accommodation is highly recommended.
Hope to be back Julia!
Julia's directions to the apartment and the travelling times to London were spot on
Julia and her husband were fantastic hosts,they arranged a taxi for us from Heathrow,and went went well beyond the call of duty to accommodate us during our stay.
We would definitely stay with them again.Hope to see them both in our neck of the woods real soon.

Julia was an excellent host! Got in touch with her last minute and she was very accommodating. The flat was lovely, clean, and in a beautiful neighborhood, 20 minutes, outside of central London. The bedroom does back up to train tracks that may be a bit noisy for some, but fine for us. Thank you again!
Julia and Karthik were great hosts - nice to talk to, and very accommodating to us in our short visit returning to London. Barnes is a quiet residential area, but perfect for us for our visit - it's not too far out to get to things, but good to be out of the bustle. There was plenty of space for us and we were grateful to be able to come and go at different times, while doing our best not to disturb anyone. Thanks for having us!
Julia was a very friendly host, she gave us some good advices and was always happy to answer our questions. It was our first time to join airbnb and a very nice experience for us. The apartment is brigth, friendly, comfortable, very clean and furnished with a good taste, also the area Barens is lovely. We liked the room though it has to be mentioned that it is abit noisy because of the the railway and the planes.
Thank you Julia for being a wonderful host. She is very helpful and she provide all information required clearly and accurately, such as direction and transportation. Strong recommended and will love to stay-in again if I travel to London!!
Julia and Karthik were warm and friendly hosts and had many wonderful tales to tell about their travels! The apartment was very spacious and well decorated including the bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen. All in all, a really lovely place to stay!
Julia and Karthik were very welcoming and helpful hosts. The room was comfortable and bright but a little bit of noise from a nearby school and the railway. My only real issue is it's a ten minute walk to public transport.
Julia was a charming host, and the apartment was very nice and convenient. I highly recomend it!
everything was fine. i had nothing to complain. julia is welcome any time again.
