Interaction with guests
We welcome you to London and our home. If you are a visitor to the city, we can provide directions and recommendations on places to go. We do tend to leave our guests to themselves as we are usually very busy. We provide a clean and safe place to stay but we don't provide a high level of social interaction. Many of our guests prefer to be left alone and not have the hosts hovering around them all the time.

It was great, super host, 20 minutes from central london, very helpful with any request. A great experience, I recommend!
He was a super host. He drove us around his neighbourhood and showed us some places to eat, where to find the bus and the metro. The buses and metro were very convenient and run often. We had no problem getting to London. We felt comfortable in his home. Used the kitchen and there were no restrictions about coming and going. The price was affordable for a family of four.
Nous avons passé un bon sejour chez nos hôtes.
Le soir de notre arrivée, nous avions commandé le diner végétarien et nous avons eu la bonne surprise de découvrir un repas srilankais ( pays d'origine de nos hotes) ; c'était très bon !
Les hôtes proposent aussi des packs launch pour le midi copieux (merci Natacha et Verginett!) et intéressant en prix!
Nous avons partagé de bons moments de convivialité en soirée avec le mari de Verginett.
nous nous sentons vraiment comme à la maison, nous pouvons utiliser leur cuisine pour le petit déjeuner: les boissons chaudes sont offertes!
Bien que le trajet soit un peu long pour rejoindre le centre de Londres, c'est un excellent rapport qualité prix.
Notre chambre donnait sur le jardin et était très calme.
Nous conseillons donc cette chambre d’hôte et reviendrons sans problème!
Patricia et Nicolas
Un accueil chaleureux.
Des hôtes formidables et très intéressants qui nous ont fait découvrir leur culture.
Facile d'accès pour les transports : le bus 127 vous emmène à la station Tooting Broadway en 7 mn où vous pouvez ensuite rejoindre le centre de Londres en 15 à 20 mn.
Nous recommandons vivement.

Experience was great!
Only negatives were that the neighbors were really loudly listening to music (but not after a reasonable time) and the house was bit cluttered in shared areas. All things that were liveable!
Ravis de ces quelques jours a Londres. Bien sympathisé avec le maître de maison.
Nous avons apprécié sa présence au petit déjeuné qu'ils nous préparaient le matin ;)... Et pendant lequel il nous a fait voyager au Sri-lanka.
Bien situé et calme, confortable et proche ligne de bus et métro. Prix raisonnable et bon accueil.
Nous les remercions de tout coeur :)
Mes filles et moi-même avons été très gentiment accueillies par Verginett et son mari, qui nous ont même invitées à un barbecue avec leur famille, le premier jour. Ils ont pris le temps de discuter avec nous, au petit-déjeuner le matin, ce qui était très chouette, car j'avais envie de parler anglais et d'en apprendre plus sur la vie de tous les jours en Grande-Bretagne, le Brexit etc.
Autre point positif pour moi : la maison n'a pas de chat (j'y suis allergique).
Je fais aussi observer que la pension est très peu chère, surtout comparé à tant d'autres.
(Une chose est un peu déconcertante au début : il faut se déchausser, en entrant; non pour des motifs religieux, mais pour ne pas salir la moquette de l'escalier; mais on peut monter ses chaussures dans la chambre, si on les met dans un sac).
La maison est à 20 minutes en bus (127) de la station de métro Tooting Broadway (zone 3), elle-même située sur la Northern Line (ligne très pratique, qui conduit par exemple directement à la gare de Saint-Pancras, où l'on prend l'Eurostar), ce qui nous a permis de visiter beaucoup de choses à Londres, pendant une semaine. J'y retournerais volontiers.
Verginett and his family are all kind and friendly. They always hoped my sister and me can make ourselves at home.
We also met many people from other countries, and it's a cool experience for me to chat with people from different countries.
It's a sweet house and a warm family as well, hope everyone can enjoy your stay!
This is a lovely homestay. The host is very genial and kind. The room is quite big and the bathroom is new and clean. The shower is really good. Moreover, the garden is very convenient for the person who smoking. It's a quiet place to stay.
Famille accueillante et serviable,a20mn de Londres,proches toutes commodités. Excellent qualité prix
