This is a modern apartment situated in the heart of London. We reside in Paddington, Little Venice where we have the beautiful canal, large willow trees, canal boats, canal cafes and much more. Enjoy the nature surrounding my area as well as walking access to many major tourist spots, such as hyde park, Madame Taussauds, Regents Park, Notting Hill, Portobello Market and more.

The beauty of living in the heart of London is that there are activities for all to enjoy. Enjoy a lovely walk at sunset on the canal, or enjoy a trip to Camden via boat, just from our door step. Take the tube to trendy East London in just 20 minutes, and explore all the markets and cute coffee shops. Prefer museums and architecture? No problem. We are lucky enough to live right next to 3 tube stations, Paddington is a 7 minute walk away, where you have access to the rest of London. Warwick Avenue and Royal Oak, are both a 5 minute walk away also giving you easy access to the rest of the city. As well as many bus links that take you all over the London. Therefore wherever your interests lie, you can do it all!

In our sleek, modern home, you will find a mother and daughter. My daughter is a recent design graduate working on various projects, she is kind, warm and welcoming, and loves to meet new people. I am a Legal Interpreter, who has found a passion for hosting. I have been hosting guests from all over the world for many years now, I have met the most incredible people, and have shared great memories with so many of them.

In the apartment, we have a fully equipped kitchen, including a Fridge, Stove, Oven, Microwave, Kettle and more. There is a marble breakfast bar where you can enjoy your own breakfast in the mornings, and we can share a glass of wine in the evening if you feel like socialising. One Bedroom includes a double bed, a dressing table, bedside table, and a wardrobe where you may hang your clothes. The second bedroom includes 2 single beds, a desk, 2 bedside tables, and a wardrobe. These are all the essentials every traveler needs. Of course we have a modern bathroom too, with a waterfall shower head, a hand bidet, a clean toilet. And last but not least, we have a lovely balcony and garden, where I have dedicated many years filling it with plants and flowers. I have spent many evenings sat on the patio with some wine and music, enjoying the summer air. This is also the smoking area. I am very lucky to have a garden in central London, and it is the heart and soul of my flat, where I would sleep if I could. LOL

At home we speak 3 languages and we teach English and Arabic. Upon arrival, I am happy to give you details about the area, give you some more tips on getting around and places that are a must see.

I am keen to make my guests comfortable and feel like they are at a home. I look forward to meeting you!

With Kindness,
Salwa

    Très bon séjour chez Salwa, on fait comme chez nous !
    A 5min à pied du métro.
    Quartier calme
    Si je peux mettre un bémol ça serait par rapport au matelas qui commence un peu à faire mal au dos.
    Je recommande cette hôte chaleureuse !

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.

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.
