Desmond was a fabulous host. He was there to greet us upon arrival, show us around his home and answer any questions we had. He was extremely thoughtful in providing fresh bread and breakfast provisions, including a much appreciated bottle of wine. Desmond remained easily contactable throughout our stay which provided great peace of mind.
Desmond's home is exactly as per the photos, it is a beautiful place which is both cosy and welcoming. It has retained a great sense of London period charm, albeit with all the necessary modern requirements. The view of the London rooftop skyline from the attic room is like a step back in time.
The location is excellent, within easy walking distance to all amenities - restaurants, tube station, grocery stores etc. It is a great base to kick start any exploration of London as it is a short tube ride into Central
This was my first time to use Airbnb, I would definitely repeat the experience again and would gladly welcome a return to Desmond's home. We had a great time - Thank you Desmond !
Just back from England where we spent 6 nights at Desmond's beautiful home. We were met at our arrival and the transition was easy. There was food for breakfast and a bottle of wine. Desmond was very quick to respond to any questions that we had before and during our stay.
The location and the accommodations worked out great for our family of four. Very comfortable home, highly recommended.
Perfect house for a family of 5 to base themselves for 2 weeks in London. Desmond met us on arrival, gave us excellent directions for shopping, dining and transport and also left the fridge ready with some essentials for us. Very quiet neighbourhood and close to bus and train. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend Desmond's place.

Desmond's home was lovely - very welcoming and cozy. We settled in straight away with the help of generous welcoming treats and had fantastic sleeps in comfortable beds. Quiet but convenient location. We would highly recommend this place as a base for families in London.
What an amazing house. We were met by Des's niece who made us feel right at home. The house was spotless and so close to queens Park station and great restaurants. Would thoroughly recommend this place. It was perfect.
Great rooms. Very spacious. Awesome bathroom. Great location in Zone 2. Easy access to underground and buses. A short bus ride to Westfield Mall.
Desmond was very helpful with any questions. A very gracious host.
Nous venons de passer une semaine chez Desmond. Tout s'est très bien passé. Desmond avait prévu quelques victuailles pour que nous puissions manger en arrivant.
Très jolie maison bien aménagée.
De fréquents échanges par SMS avec Desmond pendant notre séjour pour s'assurer que tout se passait bien.
A 10 mn à pied du métro, à 4mn du bus.
Vous pouvez y aller sans problème.
Desmond's place has an excellent location, Central London is a few tube stops away. We really appreciated the "welcome pack" in the fridge - the fresh fruit too! The house is very comfortable and we would recommend it to anyone who is looking to stay in London. A big thank you to Des for letting us stay.
I highly recommend this beautiful apartment. Amenities are complete and neighborhood is quiet which is perfect after a long, busy day of sightseeing. The tube is a good 7-min walk and is a direct line to Oxford Circus. Our host Desmond is very gracious. He prepared some food and champagne for us upon arrival. He was always ready to help with his recommendations. Great host!
