Reviews for this host's other properties
Me and my friend went to London in November. We did not know what expect!
After our first day in London we got to Paula's home. Paula is such a friendly host!
We wher so tired from our first day in central London that we love to see a bed ;)
We went to out room, it was tidy, it had everything we needed and most of all it was clean! Paula brought us a Cup of thea and a donut! How sweet! In the morning there was a nice breakfast and Paula! Paula had a map of London and showed us the 'must See places' on the map and how to get there. She was so helpfull! When we told her we leave the next night she was shocked, London in 2 days! But we did it :) We saw everything we wanted thanks to paula's advice and map!
The nearest station was a 2 min walk. In 20 min you are in London with the oyster card. (i recommand that card!!)
After another day in london we when back to Paula's and left that night at 3o'clock in the morning back to the airport ( BIG thanks to Paula because she arranged everything for us, taxi to the nearest but station, witch bus and witch bus went specialy to the airport that early in the morning)
Paula it was a great trip, thanks to you!
Love to See you again!

Paula is a friendly, welcoming host & is always happy to help with suggestions & directions.
Paula's home is in a fantastic location just a few minutes walk from Grove Park station- less than 20 minutes from Central London & is quiet,super clean & beautifully warm with the cold London nights.
WiFI was fantastic.
Breakfast was very welcome before setting out on a day of exploring.
A nice and clean room in a suburb, very well connected to central London. Everything was just perfect.
The family is very lovable, Paula was a well prepared guide to all the dos and don'ts, she is a sweet angel trying to make the stay a great experiance, helping with all kinds of advices. We had a lot of fun, we would love to come over again, and we certainly will book Paulas room.
Lots of love, Domi and Kim

The stay was pleasant and friendly. Paula is a very clean and hospitable person.
The house is very close to the train station which reaches the very lovely london sharing cross station in about 25 minutes.
I strogly recommend Paula house for London visitors
Thak you Paula. Very good vacation.
Paula and her family made me feel very welcome in their cosy home. It felt like a home from home and was definitely value for money. Such a great location!
Estamos encantados de nuestra estancia. La anfitriona fue muy amable y en todo momento estaba dispuesta a contestar las dudas que teniamos y además, nos aportó ideas muy interesantes. La casa era muy acogedora y limpia y la combinacón con el centro de Londres resultaba muy cómoda; en 25 minutos estábamos directamente en Trafalgar Square.
Very pleasant stay.
I had a very comfortable 2 week stay, Paula runs a clean warm friendly house. A wide breakfast selection of cereals, toast and preserves, coffee and tea was available every morning.
I was made to feel welcome from the moment I arrived and felt quite sad to leave in the end.
Her house is a short walk from Grove Park station making central London only 20 mins away by train which was perfect for me
I’m sure should I need a room again this would be my first choice
Very lovely house just 20 minutes far from the Centre on London. Just 5 min walk to Grove Park train station.
It's been a pleasure to stay! Paula is just a wonderful person. She can give you any sort of information about travelling aroud London. I'd come back to you next time for sure!
Thank you again!
