Both myself and Alex my partner have lived in London for the past 5 years. I work as an artist and Alex works in the V&A museum. We both love to travel and discover new places, people and cultures.
Nice place and many things to do around.
We enjoyed our stay.
Mao the cat is a star !
We came down from Nottingham with our 4 year old daughter as we were visiting a wedding nearby and wanted somewhere to stay instead of driving home . The house is lovely and quiet with a great garden for the morning after. Cara made us feel very welcome and we have no hesitation in recommending this as a place to stay.
Nous avons passé deux semaines épatantes dans la maison de Cara et Alex. Des hôtes toujours à notre disposition dans un quartier paisible mais jamais loin des commerces, pubs et transports en commun. L'endroit est parfaitement équipé pour un séjour de courte ou longue durée. Une manière différente de découvrir la ville de Londres.
Cette petite maison est parfaitement située. A proximité, il y a des magasins, des restos, des parcs, des vélos à louer, le canal et aussi le métro. Le jardinet et le chat sont sympathiques. L'accueil est très agréable.
We had a lovely stay in Londen at this very cute house.
Great location! You do have to love cats :)
Our stay in Cara & Alex's flat was lovely. The accommodations were exactly as described. As an unexpected bonus, they even had fresh cut flowers in a few places, and in one huge arrangement on the coffee table. Mao the Cat was an amusing pleasure - she likes some pets, then plays rough and disappears for a few hours.
Our favorite intangible part was the experience of how real people live in London, as opposed to a sterile hotel room that can be experienced in any city in the world.
In terms of tangible favorites, it was warm and cozy, whimsically decorated, and absolutely silent at night (and I'm a very light sleeper!)
I would absolutely consider staying there again for my next trip to London!
My family stayed in Cara and Alex's lovely home for five nights. The house was spacious enough for four people and in a great location for getting to main attraction points in London as Mile End station is only 10 minutes walk away.
House was very homely, clean and has a lovely garden. Mao, the cat, was no trouble at all. I'd really recommend this place to anyone wanting to explore London, you won't find better for such a reasonable price!
Un appartement très mignon, confortable et assez spacieux pour 4 dans un environnement très sympa. le jardin est vraiment un plus. Des hôtes super réactifs à toutes nos questions et qui ont fait en sorte que notre séjour se déroule au mieux.
Alex and Cara were lovely - as was their cat! Really friendly and helpful hosts. Great house with a private garden.
What a pleasure it was from start to finish! Cara & Alex have a beautiful, welcoming home and will def stay there again! Nothing was too much bother and we were made to feel most welcome.
Would recommend this property to anyone visiting London.
Response from Cara & Alex:
Thank you Jacqui for such a great review. :)
