Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying at this flat in London. Sara was very accommodating and Lazlo was there to greet us, let us drop our bags, and gave us some great food and shopping recommendations. The beds were comfortable and we all really loved this beautiful place.

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely apartment was very comfortable for our 5 person group - three bedrooms including the upstairs loft, three bathrooms, a wonderful common area and kitchen, clothes washer/dryer. It is a little off the beaten path but very walkable to major attractions and public transport and there are lovely restaurants in the neighborhood. Everything we needed and more! Sarah was a wonderful host and very accommodating of our needs. Thank you, Sarah!

Comfortable, Convenient & Charming

  • 5 of 5

The charming Garden House was furnished & stocked beyond expectation. Beds & linens were upscale & comfortable, the 3 full baths plus a half bath were plentiful for our group of 6 and the 3 floor levels provided all the privacy we needed. The neighborhood was lovely and so convenient for transportation, groceries, & carry out food, and had a deli just around the corner. After Sarah met us at the house we felt we could call her anytime if necessary. She told us she had equipment on order to boost the WiFi signal which has probably been installed by now. We enjoyed a nice loaf of bread, coffee, tea, & juice on arrival.
