We enjoyed our stay at this property. Bev and Jeff were gracious hosts.
We were welcomed at a midnight arrival. Jeff even offered us a pizza and
had the fridge stocked with some essentials to get us started on our
The location is very good. It was easy to get to all of the major sites
in London. The property is overall well represented in the photos. I
would note that the bunks are in a very tight room and are a bit small.
We had a bit of an electrical issue and they responded immediately and
did their best to correct a matter than was beyond their control. The
swift response was greatly appreciated.
Hopefully we will have a chance to return and visit again.
If you rent this home, you have hit the vacation home lottery! Sparkling clean and every detail has been attended to. The decorations are fabulous. Lovely little courtyard out back where we had a few meals. And the location – – wow. We were pretty close to everything. Buses are around the corner to the tube. If you decide to do some cooking, the kitchen has everything you need. Furthermore we took a short walk and purchased lovely, fresh meat and produce when we felt like a home cooked meal. And the owners! If there were more people like this in the world, it would be a better place. Great, helpful people. They clearly love the wonderful home and service they provide. And we loved them and that amazing house.
Our family enjoyed this adorable home. We had 5 adults that fit comfortably here. The kitchen was well stocked, bathrooms clean and comfortable beds. The owners met us at the home and provided us with a wealth of great visitor information. They provided us with public transit cards we could add money to, told us where to catch the buses and which lines to take. The home is within a few minutes walking distance to bus stops, grocery stores and delicious restaurants. We can't wait to return!
We stayed at this home in March 2018 as a family of five over our Spring Break holiday. We couldn’t have been happier with our choice! Bev & Jeff were incredibly helpful from the time of booking all the way through our stay and went out of their way to accommodate us. The house itself is beautifully kept and with three bedrooms (one with bunk beds,) two bathrooms with a shower and/or tub, a fully stocked kitchen and a very comfortable sitting area, there was plenty of room for all of us! The location was central to town, with bus stops within a five minute walk and tube stops ten or fifteen minutes either way. The neighborhood was great, with a Sainsbury five minutes away and lots of fun little restaurants within walking distance as well. We would highly recommend this property to anyone and would definitely return in the future!
One of my grandsons was doing a semester abroad and would be celebrating his birthday in early March. We decided this would be a great reason to visit him and London as well. So his parents, myself and my youngest grandson planned this great getaway.
I knew renting more than 1 hotel room would be quite expensive so I decided to try renting an apartment or home. This was the first time I attempted this rather than stay at a hotel and wow we hit the jackpot with this one! Besides being expensive, hotels can be cold and without personality. This home was inviting and provided enough room so that the 5 of us did not trip over each other. I felt the price was more than reasonable and since we booked early Jeff agreed to monthly payments which was a great help.
The time of year was not the best because of the weather but we were cozy in this London home. Bev and Jeff could not be more cordial or helpful. At times, I felt like I was being a pest but they never made me feel that way.
It must be difficult to open your home to strangers and hope that they respect your property and hopefully we did just that. And by the time we arrived, we felt like we had known each other for a long time. Bev and Jeff were always available to answer the many questions we had long before we our trip started. Anytime I travel in a group, I will definitely look to do this type of rental and if one of those trips should include a return to London, I hope 4 Thorpatch Road with its bright red door will be available!
The location could not have been better - outside of the din of a noisey city with easy access to all the great local transportation London has to offer.
When renting or purchasing a home, they say it is all about location, location, location. Even though this rental property had a great location, it is the hospitality and helpfulness of Jeff and Bev that will bring us back.
