Our modern Palmers Green home is 7 mls away from the centre of London and in a very safe area. We are close to the underground (Piccadilly Line - Bounds Green) and it is a 20 min journey from out home into the centre of London and all the tourist sites.. This underground line is also very convenient for those guests flying into Heathrow as it is a direct underground connection to our home. I will help you with transport details too if you let us know how you will be arriving, airport, bus, taxi, driving etc.

Couldn't ask for better acommodation than the one that I had. They made me feel part of their home.
this was my first time staying in a host family during travel. it was an sooo nice experience. the house is beautiful and the host families are kind. our room is clean and tidy. the breakfast is tasty. the host family collected and sent us to the underground station. i really enjoyed my days in london.
Soggiorno bellissimo in famiglia simpaticissima. La casa è sul confine della zona 3 ma molto comoda perchè è collegata al centro dalla Piccadilly line. Casa molto calda ed accogliente ed i proprietari si prodigano a soddisfare qualsiasi richiesta. Quando tornerò a Londra sicuramente alloggerò presso questa famiglia fantastica. Grazie mille Sandy & Roger and sorry for my English!!!!!
They are very helpful and kind. I feel like at home all the time. ^^ Roger like football. Sandy like cooking. They are warm people. There is a big garden and a big living room. Also there are two big park near home.
Wir hatten leider nur einen kurzen Aufenthalt in dem sehr freundlichen, ruhig gelegenen Haus der sehr liebenswürdigen Familie.Es war unkompliziert für ein reichhaltiges Frühstück gesorgt. Die Lage war 10 Minuten weg von der zengtralen Tube-Linie, 5 Minuten entfernt von der günstigen Buslinie. Wir werden sicher wieder bei dSandy und Roger einkehren, sollten wir wieder nach London kommen können
This guest awarded the host 4.9 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Una famiglia molto accogliente e disponibile con cui parlare di ogni cosa. Simpatici e socievoli con cui condividere una bella esperienza di soggiorno all'estero. Unico problema la posizione..un pochino fuori dal centro città
This guest awarded the host 4.7 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
