Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt bei Ihnen. Alles war top. Es gab nur 2 Dinge, die nicht so schön waren, die angeschimmelten Gläser in der Spülmaschine und der verpfleckte Teppich (den könnte man einfach weglassen). Wir würden immer wieder gerne zu Ihnen kommen. Auch die Lage ist perfekt. Vielen dank für die schönen Tage. Viele Grüße Ton de Groot und Freunde
Form over function, and not that functional
First, the good: the house has 3 spacious (especially for London) bedrooms, and a very spacious living room, a kitchen that is big enough for 5 or 6, and just about everything works. Also, the owner was very responsive and paid me pack promptly for the replacement modem (the old modem was apparently fried in a lightning storm before our arrival). It's an easy walk to grocery stores and restaurants.
The not-so-good: the house is a solid 5-10 minute walk to the tube plus at least a 30 minute tube ride to all the sights in London. The owner is selling the house, so while very nice, she doesn't have much invested in the house as a lodging, and it shows. The bed frame in the master bedroom is falling apart - we ended up putting the futon on the floor and after that my back felt better in the mornings (I rarely have any pain from beds - pretty resilient). There is virtually nothing in the kitchen - one pan with the handle falling off, and one wooden spoon. There are enough plates and cups and a coffee maker and tea kettle. That's it - even making pancakes was a challenge because there wasn't a spatula. No measuring spoons, whisk, or other utensils. There were very nice bath towels, but no hand towels or wash cloths. Our group of 5 over the course of a week very nearly ran out of toilet paper. The taps are extremely hard to adjust to a desirable temperature - sometimes it just changes on its own without touching the tap - getting hotter and colder at seemingly random times. It was extremely hot in London when we were there, which is rare, so this may not be an issue, but many of the windows would not open much at all and there was no easy way to keep them open.
There was a nice outdoor deck, but it was overgrown and so covered in pollen and such that it wasn't fun to use. It was noisy at night, especially the weekend nights when more people and cars are out and the trains run later.
This place is probably best suited for a group of young people that don't mind long walks to get into town and won't be preparing any meals. I'm really glad we found it after our existing reservation in London was canceled at the last minute, and the price was very reasonable for such a spacious place. I just wish we had been able to cook breakfast and sleep better.
