COMMENTS FROM OWNER GUESTBOOK

'We loved staying in your flat. It is beautiful, the views from the windows and from the rooftop were breathtaking. I congratulate you on the way you have remade the whole house. You've done fantastic job! Honestly, the photos don't do it justice!
It was like home away from home. It was wonderful to come home at night.' K.S. ( and a family of 5 ), Mexico

ELTHAM COACH HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four had the pleasure of staying in the Coach House for a week this past March. In preparing for our stay and while we were there, our emails and questions were dealt with promptly and courteously. The Coach House itself was very clean, nicely decorated and appointed, and featured modern high end fixtures and appliances. We really appreciated the warmth of the radiant floor heating after sightseeing during what was a particularly cold week in March! It quickly became our home away from home as the shops of Eltham High Street were literally a five minute walk away. Our daily commute to London consisted of a short walk to Eltham Station and about a 20 minute train ride into either Victoria or London Bridge Stations to connect to the Tube. We had a fantastic time staying in the Coach House and would recommend this safe location to anyone wanting to have access to London as well as proximity to the beauty of Greenwich and the surrounding area.

OKAY PLACE TO STAY

  • 3 of 5
The coach House was close to Eltham station so it was easy to get in and out of London. Son Samuel enjoyed the play equipment in the garden, although it is shared with the owners. They did have a barbecue whilst we were staying there and the noise made it hard for us to relax and watch the TV. Thankfully it ended when we wanted to retire to bed.We found the rooms too light at night time.

The arched frosted window in the main bedroom meant this room didn't really get dark. There were a few things that didn't spoil our stay but showed a lack of attention to detail - a cracked floor tile in the bathroom in the main bedroom made a horrible noise every time it was stepped on - tree light near bath had bulbs not working and even some where the glass had shattered and it had been left like that.

Although this was okay for our stay here We are not sure we would return.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the Coach House for a week and could not have enjoyed it more. It was extremely comfortable and had all the amenities, just like having your home with you on vacation. The garden was absolutely beautiful and we enjoyed looking out while having our meals. Lana and Alan were very accomodating and provided some great suggestions for eating and exploring. We travelled back and forth to London daily using the train (from both Eltham and Mottingham - both around a 7 minute walk) and enjoyed the commute. It was lovely to come back after a day of exploring London (unusually cool and rainy for May) to a toasty warm accomodation (in-floor heat) and quiet. We explored Eltham and shopped and ate a few times there (Yak & Yeti is particularly good) but loved Blackheath (only a short train ride away). It had lots of charm and great restaurants.
Thank you for making our holiday one to remember. We look forward to coming back to stay again.

AN AMAZING PLACE TO STAY!!

  • 5 of 5
I have to say that I absolutely LOVE London, but Alan and Lana made the trip just that much better. They were extemely helpful with any questions that I had and arranging the taxi service from the airport. We flew into Stansted, which was a perfect location. The taxi was about half the cost through their recommended company than the car hire "taxi" at the airport.

We stayed in the Coach House, which was absolutely beautiful!!!! I have three girls and it was great to have a lovely back yard for them to play in at the end of the day. Our family thought this was a perfect location. I have stayed in "downtown" London before and found it rather noisy at night, as most big cities are. This was perfect, quiet, and very comfortable beds for a great nights sleep. The walk to the train was easy. We used both the Mottingham and Eltham train locations which are (overground). I have to say we preferred Mottingham, but used Eltham depending on the departing and arrival train from Charing Cross (underground). All were very easy to navigate and ran late into the night. We felt very safe the entire time and didn't come home until very late, 11pm or 23:00, in the evening after seeing Wicked and Les Miserables.

I can't say enough about the hospitality of Alan and Lana, their son was great also. They went above and beyond being helpful to me and my family. More so than any other place we have stayed. We have stayed in 12 different countries thus far and they were by far the BEST!!!!

I would HIGHLY recommend this Coach House to all my friends and when we come back to spend holiday in London again this is where we will be staying. Thank you for a FABULOUS place to experience London!!!

FANTASTIC RENTAL IN QUIET SECLUDED LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This accomodation was fantastic and we had a great three days and three nights. the accommodation was spotlessly clean, the facilties were fantastic and the garden was beautiful. We had a couple of trips into Greenwich whilst staying there which took just 10 minutes by car and the stations are very close. The bedrooms were lovely and the victorian style bath was beautiful! Kitchen was great and well equipped. We hope to return in the future.
