    Omotade was lovely. She made me very welcome in her home. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. Her house is very clean and tidy and the room I had was wonderful. It even had a TV! I couldn't have asked for a nicer host.

    the host made me feel at home, and I liked very much the experience. the house is clean and the other guests were respectful and kind. My bedroom was very confortable. there are a lot of facilities near home, and the closest tube station (zone 4) is 15 minutes walking. it takes 30 min to the centre of london. Omotade was very kind and helped me a lot ! i hope to have another occasion to meet her!

    Kim is a very polite and kind person. I reccomend you to choose her as your host.
    As for area - it's easy and convenient to reach the center of London. The nearest undeground station is Newbury Park (this is the Central Line). It takes about 5 minutes to go on foot to supermarket, ATM, JD (clothing store), McDonald's, gym and other shops.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?
