YOUR FAMILY HOME IN LONDON: Free Wi-Fi - XBox(Wi-fi)
Situated on the edge of Zone 1, close to two Tube stations and with frequent buses to Waterloo, Westminster and beyond, it is the perfect base for a vacation exploring London.
Both Tube stations are a 10-minute walk away, or take the bus and be at Tate Britain, Big Ben, or Westminster Abbey in 10-15 minutes!
The house is situated in a safe, quiet, residential street and with space to spread out and relax (a scarce commodity in most London holiday apartments) it is perfect for families, couples, or larger groups. On quiet nights you can even hear Big Ben strike and the River Thames is just a short walk away.
The new American Embassy is being built nearby, very close to the impressive MI6 building.
Please note that this is a traditional British semi-detatched house, not an apartment. You occupy the whole house, so no noisy neighbours above, or below!
There are two 'Local' express supermarkets 5-minutes away, plus cafés, delis and restaurants, all within easy reach. There are also two gyms nearby to work off the calories.
The property has recently been totally refurbished and is supplied with everything you'll need to make your stay stress free and comfortable and cut down on your luggage.
There is a small, but fully-loaded kitchen with dishwasher, washer/dryer, microwave and fridge/freezer.
Upstairs, are two large bedrooms, each with a king-sized bed and remote-controlled ceiling fans, a smaller bedroom with full sized bunk-bed and a family bathroom with bath tub and power shower.
Downstairs there is a shower room, a lounge with double sofa bed, ceiling fan and flat screen TV and a dining room (seats 8) leading out to a patio garden.
Baby cots and inflatable beds can also be supplied on request. The house is centrally-heated and double-glazed.
Linens, towels, bathrobes and 2 hairdriers are supplied.
The house sleeps 8 adults (in beds/sofabed, plus we can provide 2 extra cots for infants)
For relaxing at night, a selection of DVDs and Xbox 360 games are available (please ask, as we like to offer age appropriate films and Xbox games), as well as books and games.
Free Wi-Fi is available. Also supplied are two pay-as-you-go phones for you to use during your stay.
Some basic food stuffs to get you started are included, such as tea, coffee (instant, decaff and filter), milk, bread, eggs, butter, cooking oil, olive oil and condiments.
If you would like us to have your own shopping ready for you when you arrive we can arrange that for a small fee of £10, or you can order it online and have it delivered and we will put perishables in the fridge.
If you have any special requirements, please let us know and we will do our best.
Check in is 4 p.m. Check out is 10 a.m.
If you are arriving early, we can look after your luggage until check in time, so you can fit in some sightseeing.
We try to be as flexible as possible with arrival and departure times.
There is a total no smoking policy in the house, but guests may smoke in the garden.
Daily Parking Permits can be arranged, the current cost is £5 per day.
We are nearby, so always on call for any queries.
We look forward to making your stay in London a wonderful experience and hope to welcome you back again and again.
London born and bred! Vast knowledge of London and it's history.
Jeff and Bev purchased this house in 2010
We live next door because we love the area so much!
As one of our guests remarked: 'It's like being on holiday with all the comforts of your own home – but without the clutter!'
Nuestra reciente estancia en Londres, entre el 2 y el 5 de abril, ha resultado excelente!. La casa es muy cómoda y acogedora. Las estancias son limpias y se agradece la privacidad general. Los propietarios, Bev y Jeff, están siempre predispuestos a ayudar y a facilitar que la estancia resulte lo mejor posible. En la nevera encontramos 2 tipos de mermelada, mantequilla, lonchas de bacon, leche, y huevos. Asimismo, también había cereales y pan de molde para el desayuno. La estación de metro de STOCKWELL está relativamente cerca (a unos 10 minutos), y los autobuses 77 y 87 apenas a 5 minutos de la casa. Un supermercado TESCO mediano se encuentra a unos 6 minutos. La casa dispone de un pequeño pero muy agradable jardín en la parte trasera. La casa ofrece juegos X-Box para los más jóvenes, diferentes guías turísticas de Londres, libros, juegos de mesa,... Hemos estado 5 jóvenes (entre 11 y 20 años, y 2 adultos de 44 y 50 años).
Sin ninguna duda repetiremos en el futuro si tenemos oportunidad.
We stayed at Jeff & Bev's house for five nights with four adults and two boys of 12. When we arrived we were greeted by the owners who showed us around the house and provided useful information about getting around with public transport. We have been renting apartments and houses in different parts of Europe over the last 15-20 years but we have never come across such a perfectly equipped holiday home as this one. As Bev said: "bring your toothbrush and you'll be fine". The kitchen was stocked with everything for the first breakfast the next day (toast, milk, eggs, bacon, cereals, orange juice, tea, coffee), the bathrooms were supplied with shower gel, shampoo and conditioner (for men and women), maps, guidebooks, even umbrellas were there and you are provided with two mobile phones! The living room has got a huge TV with an Xbox, games and DVDs, the kitchen is fully equipped and everthing was in an immaculate condition. If the weather had been better, we would have been able to use the nice patio in the back garden. The bedrooms (with bathrobes and slippers provided) are of great sizes as well as all the other rooms. Although it seems to be in a busy part of town, you don't hear any traffic noise except for some airplanes landing at Heathrow but we are used to that since we live close to Frankfurt airport and they are still pretty high there (it's not Hounslow!). From the house you get easily to Vauxhall station (either by bus or foot) to take the tube or various bus lines into every part of the city. To be honest, I visit London almost every year and I have never experienced such a perfect accomodation with such lovely hosts as Jeff and Bev. A true home away from home. You can't get better value for your money in London!
Nous sommes venus a 9 (4 adultes et 5 enfants) et nous avons passé un excellent séjour. Bev et Jeff nous ont très bien accueillis et nous ont donné de bons conseils pour notre première visite de londres.
La maison est très accueillante et idéalement placée pour une visite de Londres en bus ou en métro.
Je recommande vraiment cette maison .
Our family of 5, which includes 3 teenagers, rented the property for 5 nights and could not have been more pleased. Notes:
* Great location, less than 5 minute walk to the bus stop. Bus 77 will take you to London Eye and on to Waterloo Station. Bus 87 takes you over the Thames and through Parliament area onto Trafalgar Square. Sit on top of the 87 for great London views. Both buses stop at Vauxhall, which has a tube station.
* Price and Size; I thought it was an excellent value. You will appreciate the ability to spread out and relax after a long day of touring London. I do not think our trip would have been as enjoyable if the 5 of us had to go back to a cramped hotel room(s). WIFI included!
* Bev and Jeff are great people; very nice and friendly, eager to help you and answer your questions. They are also experienced travelers, which benefits you as they understand your needs. The kitchen comes with basic food (bread, milk, juice, coffee, eggs and bacon) for your first breakfast (saves an initial trip to the store), kitchen is stocked with condiments, spices and oils, umbrellas and rain panchos are provided, Oyster cards (you may have to charge them, but you save the £5 cost per acquiring each card; you leave the cards behind for the next guest) and guide books.
* Email correspondence was promptly replied to. All financial affairs were handled per terms.
Our family highly recommends this property. When we return to London, we already know where we are staying.
I recently stayed at this property with my family, that consisted of 3 teenagers and 2 adults. We were met the morning we arrived by Bev and Jeff and they walked us through all the details of the property, as well as suggestions on where to visit outside of the city. They also supply you with the basics to get you started, which was a great help.
The property is located in a very safe area, very close to the Vauxhall station, as well as a bus stop that will take you right to some of the main attractions. I can't say enough about this place and the owners, you will not regret your decision to stay here.
Great apartment, comfortable and with all you need to spend a nice holiday also with children.
Bev and Jeff are so kind and available at any moment also for what you wouldn't expect.
Absolutely recommendable to anyone who is planning a vacation in London.
