We live in a comfortable 5 bedroom house located in Southgate a typical leafy London suburb. The house is conveniently located just a 5 minute walk away from the tube/metro station which has direct connections to the centre of London and Heathrow Airport (no changes involved). There are also some good pubs, restaurants, shopping facilities and public parks nearby.

We have a very clean, modern and spacious house that was recently refurbished. We also have a very nice garden which we use a lot in summer for BBQ's etc.

Southgate itself is a very safe and well established area.

Additional Info

We have hosted students and guest from far afield including China, Korea, Argentina, Mexico, Italy and many other countries. Mother tongue is English but we have a fluent French speaker with a good grasp of Russian.

    Paul et son épouse ont été très accueillants et très aidants lors de la préparation de notre venue.
    Leur maison est absolument charmante, très bien tenue, et au calme dans un quartier très rassurant, en proximité directe du métro Piccadily Line (3 min à pied).
    Chambre, salle de bains, tout est exactement comme sur les photos, et nous avons passé un séjour merveilleux avec mes deux enfants de 10 et 12 ans, et on s'est sentis "comme à la maison".
    Je recommande vivement la famille de Paul pour un séjour à Londres !
    Encore merci de votre accueil et de votre confiance !
    Marine, Hippolyte, Iris :)

    I want to say thank you to Paul and Brigitte for my perfect permanence in his house.
    I lived 20 days in september 2018, and all were perfect.
    My room was large, super-cleaned. The breakfast was perfect with a lot of food every morning.
    The house is near to Southgate Station for the bus and tube ( 500 mt) -5 minutes walking.
    Thank you Paul and Brigitte, SEE YOU SOON!!!!!
    Voglio ringraziare sia Paul che Brigitte per la mia meravigliosa permanenza nella loro casa.
    Ho vissuto da loro 20 giorni nel mese di settembre 2018, e tutto era veramente perfetto.
    La mia camera era molto grande, ma soprattutto, molto pulita. La colazione era perfetta e ogni mattina c'era un sacco di cibo!
    La casa è molto comoda e vicina alla Stazione di Southgate per bus e Metropolitana, (500 mt) -5 minuti a piedi.
    Grazie ancora Paul e Brigitte

    thank you,

    A place as good as home. I felt welcome in a pretty nice, compact and refurbished room. The Underground to the most Hotspots is less than five minutes away on foot. Some stores and restaurants are not remote as well.
    In advance to future Journeys, I am going to meet this beautiful place again.
    Thank you Paul for beeing my Host!

How do I book?

Contact the host about your stay - tell them a little about yourself, why you are staying and ask any questions you have about their homestay. You will be able to book immediately after sending your message.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
