    I highly recommend this homestay. Keysha is the most lovely, warm & welcoming lady who really goes the extra mile to make your stay in London the best it can be. The flat is lovely. Clean, comfortable & well located. Keysha provides you with a key so you can access the flat yourself which is very helpful! The tube is literally a 5 minute walk away, and the overground about 8 minutes. Plenty of shops nearby and a lovely big park opposite. Thank you so much for having me Keysha, I hope to see you again soon

    We stayed here with new year for 2 nights. We couldnt have had a better stay with Keysha. Very warm and welcoming woman that tells you everything about where to go in london. We even got a bottle of rose on arrival for newyear so sweet.
    The house is very clean, warm and cosy!
    Loved the bed so much that it was hard to get out. She even made us breakfast in the morning.
    Alsooo not unimportant... underground station is litterly a 5 min walk.. so very easy to get around in london.

    Keysha is the perfect host! She is welcoming, friendly, hospitable, helpful and sociable. Every single day, she passionately prepared a lovely breakfast to help me have a great start into the day. She kept the flat and my room clean and tidy and made me feel comfortable at all times. We had funny and interesting conversations and I knew I could always ask for help or advice. The central location of her flat made my stay complete. Thanks for being such a caring host, Keysha!

    Dear Katrin, Thank you sooo much for your lovely heartfelt review I really appreciate your kind words and gratitude. I enjoyed our time together and indeed we had great interesting and funny conversations which I still think about at times. You even taught me a few things which I can now share with others and my future guest. Hosting you was effortless and I enjoyed every moment of it. I hope to see you again soon, Best wishes always :-)

    Keysha is a very nice host, very thoughtful and welcoming. She provides valuable information. The flat is nicely decorated and very well located, very close to the Thames with a view on Tower Bridge. The mattresses could be more comfortable.

    Kesha is a relaxed friendly Host with a really cute Doggy. Her flat is cozy and clean. She take care of me that i`m not freeze, even gave me a hot water bottle :) The Bed is pretty comfortable. One point deduction for breakfast. It was too reduced for me. May be my fould, because my english isn`t really good.

    Hi Katja,
    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review it is appreciated. I’m sorry that you felt that the breakfast was not enough for you. Homestay has changed the requirements for host providing breakfast, it is down to our discreation on whether or not we provide it. If a host decides to provide Breakfast it will be Light and is complimentary. Therefore you do not pay for this and it is Not included in the cost of the room. My profile clearly states that breakfast is “light and details what I offer. However on your arrival you stated that this is not to your taste therefore, cereals, yogurt, toast and teas were all declined by you. At your request I went out and bought sliced hams, cheese, hummus fresh fruit & Tomatoes. even though pork is against my religion. As I wanted to make sure that all your needs where met during your stay with me.
    All in all I am glad you had a great stay in London.

    Accueil parfait, chambre propre et jolie, séjour parfaitement conforme à la description. Le petit-déjeuner était très copieux, l’appartement est à 5 minutes à pieds du métro. Keysha était très avenante, à notre disposition pour chacune de nos questions et demandes.
    Merci encore à elle pour ce séjour (+plus vue sur la Tamise non négligeable !)

    merci beaucoup pour une si belle critique. J'apprécie vraiment vos bons mots. Vous êtes tous les deux incroyables et je suis heureux de vous rencontrer.

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.
