    Heidi has a lovely house with many dear, gracious friends. It was a pleasure to be hosted by her.

    Heidi is a lovely host. Her home is comfortable and exciting with a unique collection of art and wonders from around the world. Islington is a quaint and charming area of London. Highly recommend this hidden gem.

    Heidi was a fantastic host, very welcoming and accommodating. Her home is so peaceful and relaxing, in a safe location and very close to many transport links to get into Central London. It was my first homestay after relocating to London for a job, and Heidi was so helpful throughout my stay and ensured I knew where I was going. Thank you Heidi, it was a pleasure to meet you and thank you for all of your help!

    I loved staying with Heidi! She is very kind and pleasant to talk with. The space was comfortable and clean. There are stairs connecting entry to living and living to bedrooms, but I didn’t mind them. I loved the character and the opportunity to stay in a classic London townhouse. Also, it’s located very near a park and coffee shops, restaurants, grocery. I would definitely stay with Heidi again next time I’m in London!

    Her flat is super well located and charming. Thank you!

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.
