    Jo was very nice and her cats so lovely !
    The room and bathroom were clean and confortable. It's a very good address for a little trip in London. Not far away from the center and the train station (you can take the bus or by walk).
    Thank you so much Jo, it was a pleasure to have met you !! See you !

    Jo is a fantastic, and most welcoming host. It was an absolute pleasure staying with her, and Ziggy the cat. I had a very enjoyable, and memorable time.
    The flat is lovely, with a balcony filled with beautiful plants - very peaceful surroundings. My bedroom was light and airy with a very comfortable bed, and all the necessary furniture.
    Many evenings we had a chat, discussing the events of the day.
    I found Jo very helpful, and accommodating, and often she went above and beyond the call of duty.
    The location is excellent, and I was able to walk to so many places and areas, such as the West End.
    Thank you, Jo, (and Ziggy) for a truly enjoyable homestay visit!
