I enjoy travelling and believe that hospitality is making your guests feel at home - I hope you enjoy your stay in London!
I could not have asked for a better set-up than what Martin and his family offered. If you are looking for a well-outfitted, clean place close to the National Archives, this is the place. I was able to walk to the Archives every day in under 5 minutes and find good food options along the way. Access to the condo gym and pool is great, and you can run along the Thames, which is right outside the condo complex. Martin and his family are very kind and welcoming people. I will definitely come back again on my next archives trip. Thank you!
Our 9 day stay was comfortable and enjoyable. Our hosts were welcoming and friendly. This studio is a short walking distance
from our daughter's flat and very close to various shops including
grocery stores. Everything was very convenient.
The studio apartment was lovely and exactly as described. Martin and his family were extremely nice and hospitable and made us feel welcome right from the start. It was only a few minutes walk away from the tube station and a supermarket was just around the corner. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in a nice, quiet and safe place with good transportation links to the city. For us it was the perfect place to stay. Many thanks!!
Спасибо большое Мартину за гостеприимство! Потрясающий человек и великолепное место! В следующий раз в Лондон и только в Kew Gardens!
Студия светлая, большая и теплая. Окна выходят на тихую улицу, Темза находится в 2 минутах ходьбы через зеленые сады! Рядом находится огромный супермаркет Marks&Spenser, в котором можно купить абсолютно все!
До центра Лондона 20 минут на метро.
To Martin & Bridget. Marj and l had a wonderful time in London. We greatly appreciated your homely accommodation, warm friendship and caring local knowledge you offered. We would highly recommend a stay in your accommodation to all travellers.
In brief, we really enjoyed our stay, and we would have no hesitation in staying here again or in reccomending it to friends and family.
For anyone wanting more details:-
We stayed from (phone number hidden) nights.
The property is around 7-8 mins walk from Kew Garden tube station, which is well serviced by the district and the London overground tube lines. It is located in a delightful, modern avenue, which is both private and quiet.
The appartment has a good sized open plan living space which is arranged nicely into smaller functional areas, with a kitchen area, a lounge area and a bedroom area, the bathroom is a seperate room accessed from the bedroom area.
The appartment had fresh, clean decor throughout, the double bed was very comfortable, our son was staying with us so there were three adults staying and my son commented that the single bed was also comfortable.
The appartment was very well equiped for kitchen appliances, cutlery, towels, bedding TV etc, basically everything you need. The only item not in the kitchen area is a sink with running water, but there is a washing up bowl and we used to take it over to the sink in the main house.
The appartment is very private, being totally seperate from the main residence, and as others have mentioned it is accessible through the ground floor rooms of the main building and accross the small garden and up a flight of spiral stairs. They supply you with the keys to the main residence ground floor rooms so that you have free independant access to your appartment any time of day or evening.
The owners are friendly, quick to make you feel welcome, and very helpful, and we were able to leave our luggage at their house after we had checked out in the morning.
All in all we are very happy we booked this appartment and we would have no hesitation in stopping there again.
The studio apartment was lovely. Martin and his family were very nice and hospitable also very helpful. Walking up the outside stair case was a little challenging with luggage but you only had to do it twice. It was a very short walk to the Kew train station , 10 min. or less. The Kew Riverside property was very clean and beautiful with easy access to shopping and the River Thames.
I would highly recommend this accommodation. It was exactly as described. Accommodation was to a high standard and the area that it was situation in was gorgeous. It was an excellent spot to base a weekend in London for whatever activity and we shall definitely be back!
We loved the apartment and Martin and his family were great. Very helpful and the house is in a perfect area for walking along the Thames, and taking the Tube anywhere you want to go. Peaceful and lovely. Thanks!
Martin and Bridgette were so helpful and accommodating, they really added to the richness of our visit to the Kew Gardens area. The flat was very clean and comfortable with all necessary amenities provided. This was our first stop on our visit to England and it really got us off on a fine start!
Martin has been great, responsive in all communication and his family took great care of our house. We would recommend Martin & his family to anyone who would like to host for them. We look forward to seeing them again soon!
I can't imagine there could be better Airbnb guests than Martin and his wife. Even though the start of their stay started out with a couple of bumps (briefly interrupted wifi service, key location confusion and door lock issue), they were communicative, understanding, patient. gracious, and kind. My flat was left immaculate and there was even a nice note with the most delicious box of chocolates left as a thank you. Hosts should almost even pay Martin and his wife to stay with them. Crazy, but true!
Martin and Bridgette are wonderful. They are exceedingly friendly, charming and interesting. They treated our home with care and respect throughout their stay. I would welcome them back at any time and highly, highly recommend them to any airbnb host. When they left, it felt like saying goodbye to longtime friends.
