Overview

London 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.

Excellent séjour chez Bev et Jeff

  • 5 of 5

S'il ne faut dire qu'un seul mot, c'est parfait. La maison très bien située pour visiter Londres (3 lignes de bus amènent au métro, donc très peu d'attente, on peut aussi aller au métro à pied) et la maison est très confortable. Nous étions 5 adultes et 5 enfants et tout le monde était à l'aise. Mais surtout, c'est l'accueil de Bev et Jeff qu'il faut souligner. Pleins d'attentions dans la maison pour se sentir chez soi : thé, café, confiture maison, de quoi déjeuner en arrivant, des parapluies et ponchos, des oyster card à prêter, des jeux vidéo, des CD, des livres, des peignoirs et chaussons, .... et même le prêt de téléphones portables pour communiquer par SMS. Nous avons profité de la cour extérieure tous les soirs pour manger ou prendre l'apéritif.

Je recommande les yeux fermés.

This is a fantastic gem of property in Lambeth !

  • 5 of 5

Jeff & Bev's property is located in a nice, safe, and quiet neighborhood. It's a 5 minutes walk from a bus stop and 10-15 minute walk from Vauxhall tube station. There are several quality restaurants (check out A Toca, a wonderful Portuguese restaurant that Bev recommended to us) and grocery stores within a 5 minute walking radius. Jeff & Bev anticipated our every need and provided us with umbrellas, a large selection of books/maps of the local and tourist attractions in London. They also provided us with 2 cell phones, Oyster Cards, and grocery items to last for the next 24 hours. Of course, none of this was expected but was surely appreciated. The home is spacious, pristine, and extremely comfortable. We are a family of 7 (2 adults and 5 kids, ranging from age 2-16) and was perfect for us.

I will happily recommend this property in London. In fact, we are already planning our return to this fine home next year!

Very nice property

  • 5 of 5

There were 7 people in our group, 5 adults and 2 children. The house was big enough & very comfortable. The furnishing and equipment were good, there's a little terrace at the back of the house. Everything was clean and comfortable and there was plenty of food in the cupboards and refrigerator.

Last, but not least Bev and Jeff are really friendly and helpful people. They answered every question we had, provided us with "Oyster Cards" to get on the buses and subway. There was a lot of tourist information available.

The house is situated in a small street, it was really quiet and calm.

We enjoyed our stay very much and can recommend this property to you, if you are looking for a nice accomodation.

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 from Canada loved our home away from home at 4 Thorparch Road. We were welcomed by Jeff & Bev when we arrived, had food in the fridge and fresh flowers in our entry way. They made sure we had everything we needed to get around London - umbrellas, travel books, and advice on transportation.

The location is great. Quiet neighbourhood that is still close to grocery stores, good transportation and restaurants.

It worked so well for us.

We stayed 2 weeks and Bev even changed the sheets on our beds and gave us clean towels for the second week. Nice touch!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We are five women from Dortmund / Germany and stayed in Bev's and Jeff's house for four days. Everything was fine!

The house is very nice, the furnishing and equipment was good, there's a lovely little terrace at the back of the house and last but not least Bev and Jeff are really friendly and helpful people. Everything was clean and comfortable and there even was some food on the kitchen for the first day.

The house is situated in a small street, it was really quiet and calm.

We enjoyed our stay very much and can recommend this property to you, if you are looking for a nice accomodation.

A gem!!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for better hosts or location!! Jeff and Bev certainly make sure you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. Impeccably clean, laundry facilities, grocery staples left for you, cell phones to borrow, enough tourist info available to ensure you don't get lost. Restaurants, Grocery stores and bus terminal nearby. Any problems, Jeff and Bev are right next door !!
