Will my son will be hosting mostly as I am away for 3 weeks at a time walking the cost of Britain for charity. I am a semi retired nurse and home intermittently when I’m not walking. When I am home I will have 2 small dogs (schnoodles) with me - they are well behaved and non shedding. The small double room is available in our 2 bedroom Westminster flat with use of all facilities. It is a small but modern flat on top floor (6th). There is a lift to 5th floor then one flight of stairs. There is a power shower, 48" Smart TV in living room with access to Netflix and many DVDs. WiFi available. Bedroom has mirror and hair-dryer, chest of drawers, some hanging space and fan. There is a small desk in the room if needed which can fold away. There is a washing machine, dishwasher, fridge-freezer etc. Sheets and towels are provided with fresh ones when required. Attractive, quiet part of Central London, 5 - 7 mins from Victoria Station and St. James' Park underground, 10 min walk to Buckingham Palace, 15 min to Big Ben and Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and River Thames - all Central London tourist sites are within easy walking distance. There are excellent bus, tube and overground train links and many bike, E-bikes and scooters available close by. We are surrounded by shops, cafes and many restaurants and 2 small markets. There is a sports centre with gym/swimming pool at end of the road. My son Will is a 24 year old actor, singer and playwright. I am a semi-retired nurse and only work occasionally when home. My son is out a lot otherwise working from home. We like our guests to make themselves at home, be independent, cater for themselves and come and go as they please. It would not suit someone very young or anyone that needs a lot of support. Guests can use the cooking facilities and fridge. We are very relaxed with our guests and very much enjoy meeting and chatting to people from different countries and cultures.

Additional Info:
English speaking family.
2 small dogs sometimes at home but v well behaved and hypoallergenic.
When I am home and guests are staying I sleep in living room on futon so living room not available when later in evenings and early mornings.

    Thank you for sharing your home with us. You have a very pleasant and open way of living. We felt very comfortable and looked after. And I think if I could speak English better, there would be a lot more interesting exchanges. Thank you again for your hospitality.

    Unser Aufenthalt war einfach optimal. Kate ist sehr zuvorkommend und selbst Steckdosenadapter hätten wir keine eigenen mitbringen brauchen. Die Lage der Wohnung ist ruhig und sehr gut gelegen um Ausflüge aller Art ohne große Umstände durchzuführen (Bus & Bahn nur 5min Fußweg)! Wir würden wieder bei buchen!

    Un grand merci à Kate et son fils pour leur accueil. Appartement confortable et très bien situé. À seulement 6 minutes de marche du métro Victoria, emplacement au top qui nous a permis de visiter facilement tout ce que nous avions prévu. Je recommande à 100%

    appartement assez petit mais largement suffisant pour passer quelques jours sur Londres. Très bien situé, proche de tout et accessible facilement. Les maison est propre et fonctionnel. Kate est très gentil est accueillante, parfait pour être à l’aise. Nous n’avons malheureusement pas eu la chance de rencontrer son fils. Je recommande amplement.

    I had a pleasant stay at Kate's apartment. Apartment is small, but you'll be outside most of the time anyways and the location is very central with 2 metro stations nearby and the room itself was comfy and spacious. Kate and her son were very friendly and made me at ease at their place. I totally recommend this apartment!
