    Lovely house, kind couple, delicious meals. Location is excellent. I don't think you could find hosts in London better than Paul and Brigitte. Definitely will return.

    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!

    Just one word to describe the whole experience - fabulous! Thank you so much, Paul and Brigitte, for your warm hospitality and generosity in sharing your wonderful home with us. And for your kindness, too, for taking an extra passenger to the airport! Here's to the next visit!

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.
