Overview

England House Rental Photos and Description

House: 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms -- Sleeps 8 adults (Plus 2 infants)

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.

Great stay and wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Bev and Jeff were wonderful hosts. The house was perfect for our family of 5 (a couple of more people could fit comfortably too). I had read many great eviews before booking so I expected and received great service at a nice home.

The location is very quiet. The easiest way to go is to take a double decker bus into the City. There is a popular route that goes nonstop from the house, stops near Westminster Abbey and continues Trifalgar Square. Late at night we took the tube to Vauxhall station and then took a very short taxi ride to the house.

We stayed 3 nights at this house and were very pleased with the location and the accommodation. The owners Jeff and Bev ,who live next door, were very nice and were only too willing to help with any of our requests. We had a great stay and would definitely stay there again.

Great place for families to stay in London

  • 5 of 5

Jeff and Bev were wonderful hosts. They kept in touch with us before we came, providing us with very helpful information. They even provided us with two cell phones with plenty of minutes already loaded and groceries for the next day. Convenience store is a 5 minute walk with good prices. Very comfortable accomodations for 6 adults. One of the bedrooms is small with bunk beds but fine for sleeping. The bus stop was very close and easy to use. 15 to 25 minutes to the major sites. Highly recommended.

Fantastische tijd gehad

  • 5 of 5

Wij hebben met ons gezin (6 volwassenen) en ontzettend leuke tijd (week) gehad in dit mooie huis. Prima locatie in een rustige buurt en redelijk dichtbij het mooie centrum en goed te bereizen met bus en metro. Fijn huis met voldoende slaapkamers en badkamers en een hele aardige gastheer en gastvrouw.

Fantastic hosts and a comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

Where shall I start? Jeff and Bev are such fantastic hosts. The house was nice and tidy. Very confortable and had a provision of everything imaginable (hairdriers, european conversion plugs, umbrellas, toiletries.......). They left in the fridge some bacon, cereales, a cake, bottle of wine as gifts). But also the kitchen was stored with mugs, plates, glasses, frying pans, microwave, oven, dishwashwer..... as well as coffee, sugar, salt, tea, oil, soap, cloths, washing up líquid....

We were a group of 11 people (6 adults and 5 children aged 5 till 15) and were confortable in the house. The area is quiet so we had no problems with the noise. It's situated within easy reach of public transport. The deposit was returned within 7-10 days from our arrival tome. I recomend the house and I will certainly book it again if I travel in a large group.

Best home yet!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were amazing. So helpful!! The house was so clean and beautiful. The owners had food for us, including home made jam. They had cell phones for us to use there to reach each other if we got separated. The gave us bus passes so we did not have to pay for the cards. They made sure we were comfortable with finding the buses and underground! They were respectful of our time in their home. They had umbrellas and games and maps and idea books!!!! We hope to stay again soon! Thanks so much!
