About Lubna

I live in the main house with my family, and the studio apartment is totally independent from the main house with its own door.

I started this business over twelve years ago as I love to meet people of different nationalities , and enjoy learning about different cultures and common threads that unite us.

I enjoy South Asian Classical and Semi Classical music going to Museums and Art Galleries. Gardening is another of my passions and love to visit the Royal Horticultural Society's Garden at Wisley which luckily is only 20 minutes drive away. My favourite city is Venice.

Lubna purchased this studio in 1982

Why Lubna chose London

I bought this property about 35 years ago as I always wanted to live on this road. The beautiful houses with big gardens always attracted me. The cherry trees and the winding road was another plus point.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first trip to London and it was wonderful. We met Lubna at the the studio and she was so kind to explain everything we needed to know for a comfortable stay. The location is great and was a welcome place to stay after long days visiting the busy city. The amenities were great and we visited in winter so the warmth of the room was perfect after a cold day in the city. The tubes and buses were a very short walk away and the neighborhood was safe with plenty of places to eat and find groceries nearby. We would consider coming again and staying in the same place. Recommended for: Sightseeing, Tourists without a Car.

A Great Place to stay while visiting London

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted to be able to find a VRBO that was reasonable and close to the London Underground. A cozy, comfortable studio with all the appliances and best of all, a very accommodating host family. We certainly would stay there again.

Warm helpful host.

  • 5 of 5

This small flat has everthing you could want but the best feature is location, location, location. Three blocks from the underground and you are anywhere in London you might wish to be. Quiet family neighborhoods with nearby restaurants and markets and ATMs and shops. We came from Cambridge and it was a straight shot to worm adobe. Enjoy.

Quaint and quiet property with lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

This studio apartment located near the Southfields train station, about 20 minutes outside of London, is a nice little getaway that's quaint and quiet. If you are looking for somewhere outside the city that provides you all your necessities, this is the place for you. Now, the property is certainly a studio apartment, mind you, so if you want something more upscale, you should probably look closer to the city. However, if you're looking for a cost-effective, quiet stay that covers all your needs, book this place today!

The Southfields station is also located in Zone 3, so it's slightly more expensive to take the tube than if you were to stay within the city limits of Zone 1, and the train ride is obviously a little longer than you might experience otherwise too, though it's a popular station anyway so it's not really an inconvenience. Granted, those things are relatively minuscule and worthwhile if you want be outside the city.

The last thing I'd like to touch on is the fact that the owners are very accommodating and helpful, moreso than you'd likely experience at a hotel. My wife and I arrived without one of our bags and they took on this problem as their own, providing us their phone number and making sure the bag arrived at their house without issue while we were out sightseeing. This is the aspect of this property that set itself apart. Their hospitality and help were invaluable, so I really couldn't recommend this place higher due to that factor. Considering it was our first time in London, feeling welcomed right away by these folks was a big relief and helped us enjoy our stay more than I could express. Thank you again to Lubna and family for a lovely stay!

Clean, comfortable little studio apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Although the flat is quite small it certainly had everything we required. It even has a small washer/dryer if you need to do laundry. Just a short walk to the tube and bus stops and in a quaint, quiet, safe neighborhood. Lubna was the perfect host, there if you need her but also respected our privacy.
