We could not have had a more wonderful experience than the one we had with Karolina and family. The accommodations were perfect for my husband and I. It is about a 10 minute walk to the nearest metro station at a decent quip, and we found that we were always within a short train ride to all the destinations we wanted to visit. We were in walking distance to the Portebello Road market, which was lots of fun! The neighborhood itself is very safe, and peaceful, so we felt quite comfortable strolling back to the BNB at late hours. The location was the perfect balance of convenience, and respite from the hustle and bustle of the busier areas of London.
Our bedroom was located on one floor of the house, separate from theirs with a private, very beautiful bathroom (wait until you see the soaking tub). It was generously apportioned with nice soaps and body washes. The bedroom was very clean and nicely decorated, just as it is pictured on the website. It is not a huge room, but nicely sized for two. It has 3 nice big windows, a small closet for those who wish to use one and an Apple computer with a large monitor for viewing television, surfing the net, or checking into flights. Our hosts provided codes for Netflix and Wifi. The beautiful fresh roses in the room were a very nice touch!
Breakfast was delicious each day, in fact, on a couple of the days, my husband and I decided that it had been our best meal of the day (having eaten lunch and dinner on the town). The Eggs Florentine were seriously to die for! In addition to the hot main course, It always included fresh seasonal fruit, juice, coffee and tea. They were very flexible as to what time to serve breakfast. It is typically between 8 and 10, but she was happy to have it ready by 7am on they day we left.
Perhaps the best thing about this AirBNB was the family itself. Since it was our first experience with an AirBNB, I worried that it would be awkward, but it never was. They were so warm, accommodating, and easy to talk to. It felt like they were old friends! They are available as much or as little as you want them to be, so the amount of interaction was perfect!They were great with giving directions and recommendations. For example if we mentioned that we were going someplace that our hosts new would be a madhouse, they'd suggest a better day to visit that location. They were also great with restaurant recommendations (and boy were we sorry when we didn't follow them). They were so thoughtful, kind, and warm that it made our stay absolutely wonderful!
We couldn't have chosen a better AirBNB! Thanks Karolina!
