This is as good as airbnb gets. Qute apart from having a warm and welcoming personality, Heather has put a lot of thought into what her guests need to make their stay both comfortable and interesting. I really appreciated the flowers on the breakfast table, the maps and timetables in my room, the comfortable bed with good linen, the sound advice on getting into central London and the informationa about local events and restaurants.
But as an ex-londoner I was also surprised to discover what a splendid place Ham is, especially for overseas visitors. On a practical level the parking is easy and free, there are local shops, including an excellent German Deli. Teddington, Richmond and Kingston are all reasonably close and prove access to town as well as great shopping and restaurants. But for me the great joy was walking through Thameside meadows and woodlands, having a pint by the river and hearing genuine London voices rather than those of tourists!
In short, a great host, a comfortable house and a superb location.
Easy to find, following Heather's indications.
Very warm and friendly welcoming in her cosy, comfortable and nice home. I felt immediately very well, like being at a very good friend's home. A cup of tea and exquisite talking about top level and funny movies, life, culture, work.
A riverside good and romantic restaurant has been a great suggestion to make my very short staying like a real vacation.
Heather's home is well located in a beautiful area, only 30 minutes away from the city.
Thank you Heather!
I spend 5 nights at Heather's house. She is excellent host, making me feel "at home". Her house is lovely, clean, very quite and very cozy. I recommend it! Especially if, after the chaos of London, like me you love to relax!! ..greenery and paths for long walks along the Thames.
We spend 3 nights at Heather house, she was an excellent host, clean very well equipped room, clean bathroom, very nicely presented breakfast and great company, good location, definitely highly recommend her.
What to say? Staying with Heather was a truly lovely experience. She has a beautiful home and welcomed me with open arms, introduced me to he friends and made my stay a total pleasure. I can totally recommend staying with her, I look forward to staying again
Heather was a great hostess, staying in contact with me via text as I arrived later than anticipated. A welcome glass of white wine on arrival was appreciated. The room was light and airy and the bed comfortable. A nice continental breakfast in the morning capped off a brief stay, but I will definitely use Heather again in the future if needed.
Heather was a wonderful host, and the room was fantastic (definately as good as a 5 star hotel), and the home itself is very well designed. Even though we were only spending one night, our family and Heather had a wonderful time in the evening. The neighboorhood is very quiet, however a bit far from Richmond town centre. We will definately stay with Heather next time, hopefully for longer.
My stay with Heather was very nice. I can absolutely recommend her as a host and will surely visit her again when I go back to London.
Heather has a lovely place and it was clean and bright.
What can i say... I was only there one night but Heather was the perfect host, she is a fantastic, an interesting person, I will certainly being staying again.... Oh and the wine was lovely thankyou...
