    We had a wonderful stay at Maria's place. It is a lovely room, with a comfortable bed. All the right elements were there: a refridgerator, a closet with bath towels/bathrobes, extra blankets if needed, a tv and 2 seats. The bathroom is really nice too. Maria is a great host, very welcoming and understanding. We enjoyed staying here and would defenitively recommend this room to everyone.

    We stayed at Maria's house the last three days and it was a wonderful experience. Maria is one of the nicest persons I've ever met. She is a great host and the perfect person if you like talking. She helped us with our travel, recommend us places to go and offer us everything she had.

    The house is great and I would recommend it to everyone. It's near the station and you are 10-15 minutes away from London (by train). You have a lot of shops and restaurants near by too.

    Awesome experienice. Great house, great location and better atmosphere. Maria and her family are lovely and they all made us feel like we were at home. When we return to London, we'll stay at Maria's house, for sure.

    10/10 experience!

    Wow! What a lovely host and room.
    Maria is informative, so friendly and such a wonderful host, making my partner and I feel right at home away from home during our stay in London.
    The room itself was gorgeous with everything you could possibly need during a visit.
    Maria is so helpful and genuinely interested in making the time you spend at her home as comfortable as possible. I could not give a more positive review, I would give 6 stars if I could.
    Thank you Maria!

    Es war toll bei Maria und ihrem Mann. Beide sind so herzlich und helfen gerne. Es ist von außen nicht die beste Straße aber die beiden haben ein sehr gemütliches und sauberes Heim geschaffen. Und lecker kochen können Sie auch.
    Die Verkehrsverbindungen in die Innenstadt sind super zu erreichen und es gibt auch zahlreiche Shops und Fast Food Ketten an der Hauptstraße um die Ecke.
    Wir wurden herzlich empfangen und würden jederzeit wieder kommen.

    Maria and Fernando are great hosts. Very helpful and friendly, going above and beyond what I was expecting. It felt like I was staying with friends and was so comfortable and relaxed.

    The bedroom was huge. It had a massive, comfy bed, with sitting chairs, Sky tv, a bar fridge, and heaps of storage to unpack so you don't feel like you are living out of a suit case. A home away from home to relax in, not just a place to sleep.

    Bathroom and kitchen keep spotless and tidy, and the lounge was a great place to catch up at the end of the over a glass of wine.

    Apartment 5 minute walk to the underground and DLR, and plenty of places to by groceries and fresh fruit and vegetables.

    Definitely recommend Maria and Fernando to anyone.
