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.

Wonderful stay in London!

  • 5 of 5

The Garden house was LOVELY!

It is centrally located in Pimlico, with the underground and bus stops, shops and restaurants all within walking distance. (Try the cafe and the deli, right around the corners, and the take out curry place nearby!

We have 3 kids (11, 8, and 2) and we had ample space and Sarah and Laszlo made sure the house had everything we needed! She made sure we had a baby car seat, pack and play, extra blankets, plenty of clean towels, toilet paper, and even provided us with some milk and juice. (There is a Tesco and Sainsbury’s nearby for when you run out). We slept on wonderfully fluffy and clean beds. We were also able to eat breakfast at home half our stay there, made tea and coffee and had plenty of plates/utensils. We were even able to do a load of laundry. The house is clean, quiet, and had lots of amenities.

It was very easy to communicate with Sarah, and we can’t wait to stay here again!!!

Sarah welcomed us, explained everything about the home and where to go. The kitchen and baths were nicely stocked. There were 6 of us on a family trip. We would definitely stay here again!

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!
